I admire the work of your organization. ... I feel there is a lack of explanation of the reasons WHY behind current events. Take the " 911" event. I never got a satisfactory explanation from the media as the reasons WHY this event occurred . May I be of assistance.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Yes, it is quite remarkable how little attention has been paid to the motives behind 9/11. My view, in very brief: It was intended to strike the United States hard and begin a downward spiral such as the Islamists imposed on the USSR in the late 1980s.
