Study Islam

Reader comment on item: Americans Wake Up to Islamism
in response to reader comment: The Americans must pay for what they have sawn.

Awareness is vital in any war. It is even more so in this one. The number 1 rule of war is to 'know thy enemy'.

I must admit. I did not begin to really study Islam until after 9/11. I wanted balance, so I read favorable articles and books. (Like Karen Armstrong.) I also read articles and books that are not so nice toward Islam.

I have studied warfare for more than 40 years. Actually, it is a study of human nature (Although I did not realize this for some time) I have never seen so many good reasons to wage war as a number of issues that I have identified concerning Islamic law and governance.

As this article stated, I am not alone. I am certain that many other Americans have done as I have. Not enough, but it is a good start.
