Reader comment on item: Stupid Terrorists

Submitted by Amitabh tripathi (India), Oct 4, 2005 at 08:14

Subject of this article is very unique and for this the writer deserves compliment. This suubject indicates how much Dr Daniel Pipes follows the movements of terrorists. Author has told two reasons for the stupidity of terrorist in which latter is more accurate and debatable.
It is very difficult to point out whether they are stupid or victim of supremacism.Sometimes they do some stupidity because of their negligience for enemy states. Before going for terrorist activity they are so much ideologically indoctrinated as they start neglecting every other thing if it is law & order or something else.

This article has two observations, one we can feel comfortable as terrorists themselves give some leads for their arrest, and other we should think seriously about how terrorists dare to live as a common man within us after planning for such heinous crimes.This is more worried part of modern Islamic terrorism.What make them so daring .Their ideology and their commitment to it.
We can imagine about a person who in others eyes is perpetrating terror, but from his own point of view he is performing his religious duty. This is reason why they dare to do stupid things.In my opinion Dr Pipes has put before us one undebatable dimension of Islamic terrorism.
