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.

I know many who will argue that Islam is not in itself evil, but what do you say to those like Atta's father who think with this logic?
A perception of war, holy war or Jihad! His son died killing thousands on 9/11 and the attacks on London bring his words of praise!
Their sons and daughters are their heros, and our terrorists.

Well Mohammed didn't and they didn't and maybe daddy Atta who claimed to have spoken to his son on 9/12 has just been bailed into the story or maybe he was in there all along
But where is it that they draw such strong faith and why?
Where are the voices in the Islamic world who will condemn Atta’s father’s praise of these attacks?
