Speech of the Week

Rudy Giuliani

United Nations Special Session Address

delivered 1 October 2001

"On September 11th 2001, New York City -- the most diverse City in the world -- was viciously attacked in an unprovoked act of war. More than five thousand innocent men, women, and children of every race, religion, and ethnicity are lost. Among these were people from 80 different nations."

"This was not just an attack on the City of New York or on the United States of America. It was an attack on the very idea of a free, inclusive, and civil society. It was a direct assault on the founding principles of the United Nations itself."

"Terrorism preys particularly on cultures and communities that practice openness and tolerance. Their targeting of innocent civilians mocks the efforts of those who seek to live together in peace as neighbors. It defies the very notion of being a neighbor."

"This massive attack was intended to break our spirit. It has not done that. It's made us stronger, more determined, and more resolved."

"The strength of America's response flows from the principles upon which we stand...religious freedom, political freedom, economic freedom. That's what makes an American. Our belief in democracy, the rule of law, and respect for human life. That's how you become an American."
