Reader comment on item: [Hasan Akbar and] Murder in the 101st Airborne

Submitted by Erik Paulson (United States), Mar 25, 2003 at 20:29

The Islamists in the world have to get used to intense scrutiny from others. The peaceful, clear-minded islamists are not doing all they can to stop, expose, and condemn the "Coalition of the Willing to Destroy Ourselves & Non-believers". I get the impression that the Arab world sees the good-will of Americans as a sign of weakness that should be exploited as well as abhorred. Terrorist, Al-Jazeera and the like are successfully dismantling our good-will as it pertains to them, and our willingness to turn the other cheek is coming to an end. We too can have the wrath of God. Is that what they want?
