Reader comment on item: But He Was Good to His Mother

Submitted by S.C.Panda (Philippines), Dec 8, 2003 at 04:57

Dear Prof Pipes,

I agree with your view that poverty is not the sole criterion for opting terrorism. Note for example, Omar Sheikh, who was released from an Indian prison because of the aircraft hijacking to Kabul, was a student at the London School of Economics.

The anonymity indulged by the terrorists is indeed degrading. For them, human life has no value.They are rogues, thugs in the garb of "nice guys". India has been fighting terrorism for the last 20 years. The USA came to realise what terrorism is only after the 9/11 attack.

I can only congratulate the Middle East Forum for doing an excellent job in exposing the potential terrorists.

Regards, Sincerely, S.C.Panda
