So the upshot of his argument seems to be that any non-western culture, by it's very nature wil1 be irrational and promote terror... AS IF there were no homegrown irrational forces of terror and oppression within Western Christian culture itself (think the inquisition, think of the Ku Klux Klan, think of the Holocaust, think of Timothy McVeigh, think of the Christian right)...

That is what I got out of the article. But another thing that I got out of the article is that when a group of people feel foreign, alienated, and marginalized,- they will have the propensity of breeding terrorism. I think this is the only part I agree with him on.

Peace.... I agree with this article. This entire episode of American history seems strangely familiar. It seems that ths entire plot played out in Star Wars episode 1 thru 3. The Emperor used terror as a means to unite a people in the idea that they must join forces under his unlimited power in order to secure against an enemy which in truth was created by the emperor himself. Fear has made many Americans willing subjects.... Kai
