In its "Viewpoint" column last week, the conservative daily Kayhan
International criticized the apathy of the Muslim nations and called
upon them to unite against the U.S. The following are excerpts from the
column:(1) 

"Where is human [consciousness]? What has happened to the Islamic spirit
of Jihad? Whither Arab honor and dignity?" 

"A 'notorious terrorist' - Ariel Sharon is currently in Washington… to
seek official support and blessings for state terrorism… Despite this...
no Muslim head of state has yet dared to call the American
administration the number one terrorist and the chief supporter of
terrorism..." 

"...Uncle Sam blatantly calls Muslims 'terrorists and supporters of
terrorism,' but no Muslim country has yet dared to summon up courage to
say: 'Shut up you breeder of terrorism.'" 

"If not for anybody, at least for heaven's sake, let all Muslims come
together under one umbrella and overcome this unwarranted fear of the
U.S." 

"Our apathy to Palestine, Afghanistan and other sore spots of the
Islamic world has encouraged the American administration to inflate
itself to gigantic proportions and appear more terrible than they
actually are. Our lack of faith in the fundamentals of Islam is dragging
us to our doom." 

"It is high time every Muslim realizes that there is no political
solution to the Palestinian crisis... If there was, and if the so-called
mediating parties including the Europeans were sincere, then the
Zionists would have long gone back to the lands they belong." 

"Fifty-four years is a long period, although still short when compared
to the 88-year occupation of Bait Al-Maqdis by the Crusaders who were
eventually driven out to Europe by a united and spirited Muslim attack
that involved Arabs, Turks, Kurds and Persians." 

"The Muslim Ummah can achieve this victory once again if only they close
ranks and stop worrying that their unity would irk the U.S.... [W]e
should not displease God, the Almighty Creator..." 

"..Palestinians require arms and armies and it is the duty of the Muslim
Ummah to make these means available to them..."
