I wish I'd never heard of Mohamed Atta. I fervently wish the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service had. Atta is the well-educated young Egyptian terrorist and apparent mastermind among the 19 hijackers who flew passenger airplanes on Sept. 11 into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, killing themselves and nearly 3,000 innocent people.
Heath J. Meriwether, Faith in government relies on open, fair hearings, Detroit Free Press, April 21, 2002

Four of the hijackers who attacked America on Sept. 11 tried to get government loans to finance their plots, including ringleader Mohamed Atta, who sought $650,000 to modify a crop-duster...During the initial applicant interview, [government loan officer Johnelle]Bryant was taking notes. "I wrote his name down, and I spelled it A-T-T-A-H, and he told me, 'No, A-T-T-A, as in Atta boy!' " "He wanted to finance a twin-engine six-passenger aircraft … and remove the seats," said Bryant. "He said he was an engineer, and he wanted to build a chemical tank that would fit inside the aircraft and take up every available square inch of the aircraft except for where the pilot would be sitting." Atta also talked about life in his country. "He mentioned al Qaeda, he mentioned Osama bin Laden," said Bryant. "I didn't know who Osama bin Laden was … He could have been a character on Star Wars for all I knew."
Brian Ross, Face to Face With a Terrorist, ABC News, June 6, 2002

Purify your heart and clean it from all earthly matters. The time of fun and waste has gone. The time of judgment has arrived. Hence we need to utilize those few hours to ask God for forgiveness. You have to be convinced that those few hours that are left you in your life are very few. From there you will begin to live the happy life, the infinite paradise. Be optimistic. The prophet was always optimistic.
Mohamed Atta, Excerpt from a five-page handwritten document that the FBI found in his luggage. Translated from Arabic.

Martyrdom in Islam: To die a martyr or shaheed fighting in the way of Allah gives immediate passage to Paradise, unlimited sex with 70 virgins, sitting on a chair of rubies or reclining on green cushions. But some Islamic scholars argue that the Koranic injunction to seek Paradise by dying in battle with the infidel does not extend to acts premised on suicide.
Human Rights Abuses in Islamic Countries, Editorial: Apartheid or cooperation?

The Crusades, far from being an outrageous prototype of Western imperialism, as is taught in schools, were a mere episode in a struggle that has lasted 1 400 years, and were one of the few occasions when Christians took the offensive to regain the “occupied territories” of the Holy Land.
Rainer Küsel, Combating Islamic Terrorism, Signpost Publications, VOL 20, no 6, 2001

The ultimate act of submission is of course a willingness to lay down your life in the name of Allah, those who do so are “Shaheed” (martyrs). Shaheed comes from the root word “Shahada”, which means to witness / testify to the truth, a shaheed is he who sacrifices his life in his struggle for the truth. A person who fights in the cause of Allah (swt) is he whose intention is to “uphold the truth”
Agha Sayyid Hassan Askari Bokhari, The Revolution of Imam Hussain, in the context of the Imamate

"If Christ Jesus, our Lord and God, is himself the high priest of God the Father; and if he offered himself as a sacrifice to the Father; and if he commanded that this be done in commemoration of himself, then certainly the priest, who imitates that which Christ did, truly functions in place of Christ" (Letters 63:14 [A.D. 253]). Cyprian of Carthage, The Sacrifice of the Mass

According to the Protoevangelium, Joseph was required to regard Mary’s vow of virginity with the utmost respect. The gravity of his responsibility as the guardian of a virgin was indicated by the fact that, when she was discovered to be with child, he had to answer to the Temple authorities, who thought him guilty of defiling a virgin of the Lord. Mary was also accused of having forsaken the Lord by breaking her vow. Keeping this in mind, it is an incredible insult to the Blessed Virgin to say that she broke her vow by bearing children other than her Lord and God, who was conceived through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Mary: Ever Virgin, Catholic Answers, catholic.com

"It was not the visible sun, but its invisible Creator who consecrated this day for us, when the Virgin Mother, fertile of womb and integral in her virginity, brought him forth, made visible for us, by whom, when he was invisible, she too was created. A Virgin conceiving, a Virgin bearing, a Virgin pregnant, a Virgin bringing forth, a Virgin perpetual. Why do you wonder at this, O man?" (Sermons 186:1 [A.D. 411]).
Augustine, Mary: Ever Virgin, Catholic Answers, catholic.com

Keep a very open mind, keep a very open heart of what you are to face. You will be entering paradise. You will be entering the happiest, everlasting life …You know that paradise is already beautified [for you] and the beautiful angles are calling you after they put on their most beautiful dresses.
Mohamed Atta, Excerpt from a five-page handwritten document that the FBI found in his luggage. Translated from Arabic by ABC News.
