Jihadists pleading insanity is insanity

Reader comment on item: It's Not Road Rage, It's Terrorism

Submitted by sara (United States), Apr 4, 2012 at 17:47

It is unfathomable that in this day and age, post 9-11 and other atrocities, the western world continues to ignore or refuses to accept that people will kill in the name of Islam. It is happening all around the world on a daily basis. How can American jurors buy the insanity plea? As the article states- it is because they are not given enough of a background about the Jihadist motivations and therefore they are using their own cultural identifications to determine sanity instead of seeing what is really going on. Terrible situation.
