Until concrete evidence is presented, I, like many others, believe that we should not label the pilots on that plane as terrorists, suicidal, hijackers, or anything else negative...but as heroes who were frantically trying to get the plane safely back on the ground but could not do so.
In China people often ask me whether I am white or yellow (somehow they cannot tell), and I get called all sorts of things under the sun (Mexican, Malaysian, Arabic, Italian, Spanish...you name it)...everything except being called British!
The last time I briefly spoke to my former schoolmate Talha was just after we completed our A-Level exams in the summer of 1998 at the prestigious private school Dulwich College in southeast London. After spending nearly six years in a British jail awaiting extradition to America on terrorist charges, Syed Talha Ahsan has now faced extradition to America after losing his appeal at the European Court of Human Rights, alongside four other terrorist suspects including the radical preacher Abu Hamza.
'Asia' is formed of 48 countries, and extends right the way from Saudi Arabia to East Timor covering 30% of the earth's land (44,597,000 km2). Of course, within this area you have parts of the Middle East, Central Asia, South Asia, and South-East Asia.
