Moussaoui Proves Sam Harris’ Point
Posted on Apr 14, 2006
To justify his hatred of America, the Sept. 11 conspirator read passages from the Koran in court. This is exactly the kind of thing that “The End of Faith” author Sam Harris was talking about in his Truthdig interview.
Moussaoui Details His Hatred of America
By MATTHEW BARAKAT, Associated Press Writer
Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui insists he does not want to be executed, but for the second time he took the stand at his death-penalty trial and spouted off in a way that could eliminate any chance for mercy.
Moussaoui mocked the tearful testimony of 9/11 victims and their families and wished for similar attacks every day until America falls. He gave a detailed explanation of his hatred for America, flipping through a Quran on the witness stand trying to find justification for his views.
Moussaoui’s testimony Thursday at his death-penalty trial came as defense lawyers sought to show Moussaoui was crazy and prosecutors sought to show he was simply evil.
