Saudi Arabia September 11th 2001
I was working in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the King Faisal Hospital, it was late in the afternoon on Tuesday. I got a call from a South African Paramedic that works in the Military hospital.
He told me the World trade center in New York had fallen and the Pentagon had been bombed. "no way, your shitting me."
Later after all was over the mood in Saudi changed. The only word was pure Joy at what had happened.The Saudi's showed their true hatred of America that day and many days thereafter. Saudi would never be the same for westerners inside the Kingdom. After 9/11 the terror for us had only just begun.
Ofcourse Prince Naif with the Ministry of the interior stated it was a Jewish American plot to inflame hatred of Islam.
