Anne, you are a right fighter, that is someone who has to be right no matter what information may be provided. Do you actually want us to believe that Muslims with box cutters can overpower Pilots with pistols? What will Pilots think when they see Muslims with box cutters; will they immediately submit, even knowing that they are going to die?

In the fourth airplane on (Sept 11,2001), the passengers realized that they were facing death and they attacked the 4 Muslims and killed them. The plane crashed and everyone was killed, but at least no building was destroyed and no other innocents were killed. In my view, the passengers were heroes. You also state that had the pilots opened the door, their guns would not have been any use to them. Why not? Would they rather submit and die or would they fight for their lives?

In fact would you not fight for your life, or would you submit, knowing your facing death. Let's say that you and three of your friends have knives and I have a pistol, would you really want to challenge me?

You state that; "it was the first time hijacked planes were used as suicide missiles". Maybe so, but it is definitely not the first time that planes were hijacked. In 1976, a plane was hijacked and flown to Entebbe in Uganda with mainly Israeli passengers on board. The passengers were released after IDF commandos (Sayeret Matcal) stormed the plane and in the gunbattle that ensued, 24 people were killed including three Israeli hostages and IDF commando Yoni Netanyahu.

Last of all, having read several of your articles, I'm suspecting that you may be a Muslim or you are apologist for Islam.
