Mid-East Economic Boom Followed 9/11

“Since late 2001, economies in the six Gulf Cooperation Council countries - Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia - have soared, with stock markets up a collective 400 percent. […]Most of the credit for the wealth influx here is due to the near-tripling of oil prices since 2001 to current levels of more than $67 a barrel.” (AP)

Super, I am so glad that they countries that spurned this evil are profiting so well from it. Now, if we would just believe them that “Moderate Muslims” don’t support this violence, maybe their markets would do even better!
