    Atta's father praises London bombs

    CAIRO, Egypt (CNN) -- The father of one of the hijackers who commandeered the first plane that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, praised the recent terror attacks in London and said many more would follow.

    Speaking to CNN Producer Ayman Mohyeldin Tuesday in his apartment in the upper-middle-class Cairo suburb of Giza, Mohamed el-Amir said he would like to see more attacks like the July 7 bombings of three London subway trains and a bus that killed 52 people, plus the four bombers.

    Displayed prominently in the apartment were pictures of el-Amir's son, Mohamed Atta, the man who is believed to have piloted American Airlines Flight 11 into the north tower of the World Trade Center as part of the attacks on the United States.

    El-Amir said the attacks in the United States and the July 7 attacks in London were the beginning of what would be a 50-year religious war, in which there would be many more fighters like his son.

    He declared that terror cells around the world were a "nuclear bomb that has now been activated and is ticking."

    The man, who gave his age as "at least 70," said he had no sorrow for what happened in London, and said there was a double standard in the way the world viewed the victims in London and victims in the Muslim world.

    Cursing in Arabic, el-Amir also denounced Arab leaders and Muslims who condemned the London attacks as being traitors and non-Muslims.

    He passionately vowed that he would do anything within his power to encourage more attacks.

    When asked if he would allow a CNN crew to videotape another interview with him, el-Amir said he would give his permission -- for a price of $5,000.

    That money, he said, would not be kept for himself, but would be donated to someone to carry out another terror attack.

    El-Amir said that $5,000 was about how much it would cost to finance another attack in London.

    A lawyer by trade, el-Amir had a sign on his apartment door saying he was a consultant.

    The security guard for the apartment building said el-Amir had been under surveillance by Egyptian agents for several months after the September 11 attacks, but no one had been watching him recently.

    So what did you expect from a Muslim extremist? An apology?

    Define "Kill "Em All Theory." IF you mean ALL Muslims, no. If you mean ALL terrorists, then yes.

    However, as I have posted before, don't expect me to get all broken up over muslim noncombatant casualties as a result of targetting terrorists when it is encumbent on THEM to outcast terrorists from their midst and publicly decry their attrocities.

    Let's turn it around. Whenever some whacko, extremist religious bonehead does something outrageous in THIS country, who suffers? EVERY Christian does. Suddeenly all of us are nutcases who blow up abortion clinics and try to legislate Christianity down everyone's throats.

    How come it is that WE, the people of this Nation can be branded that way by the left; yet, the second we say "Kill 'em all" about Muslims it's just a few making the rest look bad?

    I'm not saying you are on the left btw. I haven't quite got your position pegged yet, but I'd guess pretty-close to center.
