They're not "criminals" but jihadis

Reader comment on item: American Law Enforcement Really Does Profile Muslims – The Siraj Case

Submitted by Maureen (United States), May 8, 2006 at 22:16

These cases should not be handled as criminal cases, because these men are jihadis, not criminals. They are behind-the-lines, non-uniformed soldiers in a non-traditional, non-European, Medieval-mindset war.

Same goes for Moussaoui. He was not a criminal but a soldier. He should have been tried in a military court .

What we are seeing is an insidious, borderless, religious war. New means must be developed to deal with new types of warfare.
