An interesting perspective....<br>
OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR<br>
Dying to Kill Us<br>
By ROBERT A. PAPE<br><br>
CHICAGO — Suicide terrorism has been on the rise around the world for two decades, but there is great confusion as to why. Since many such attacks — including, of course, those of Sept. 11, 2001 — have been perpetrated by Muslim terrorists professing religious motives, it might seem obvious that Islamic fundamentalism is the central cause. .....<br><br>
However, this presumed connection between suicide terrorism and Islamic fundamentalism is wrongheaded, and it may be encouraging domestic and foreign policies that are likely to worsen America's situation.<br><br><a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2003/09/22/opinion/22PAPE.html?ex=1064808000&en=553625335e9722fb&ei=5062&partner=GOOGLE" target="_blank">http://www.nytimes.com/2003/09/22/op...partner=GOOGLE</a><br><br><br><a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2003/09/22/opinion/22PAPE.html?pagewanted=2&ei=5062&en=553625335e9722fb&ex=1064808000&partner=GOOGLE" target="_blank">http://www.nytimes.com/2003/09/22/op...partner=GOOGLE</a>

It is an interesting perspective ... the second page of it, anyway, since that's the only part I could access. Now if only I could get the first page of the link <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> ... digging around the NYT website makes me nuts sometimes ...

I found the article and underlying facts interesting, but through the conclusions drawn were a bit far-reaching and needed a lot more support than the article provided:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Israel, for example, would be well advised to abandon the territory it holds on the West Bank but to go ahead with building the immense wall, 20 feet high and 20 feet wide, to physically separate it from the Palestinian population. This would create real security for Israel and leave the West Bank for a true Palestinian state.</td>
</tr></table></div>
