    The above phrase in Arabic is "lan astaslem." (The phrase is below in attatchmets...) It means "I will not surrender/I will not submit." (Thanks to Rusty, Laura, and Daveed for translation help.) This is the last line of my 9/11 column and it's my 9/11 anniversary message to the convert-or-die jihadists.

    "Lan astaslem."

    I will not submit. I will not surrender.

    None of us can know exactly how we would act in Todd Beamer's or Barbara Olson's or Robert Stethem's or Fabrizio Quattrocchi's shoes. But we can gain strength in their memory, in the reinforcing presence of each other's company, in making our refusal to submit public, and in working to honor this anniversary vow in small ways and large--long after the memorial candles have been blown out.
