Ijtihad or death

Reader comment on item: Why the Left Loves Osama [and Saddam]

Abdullah Al Osama comments:
"We want two things. Victory and domination of our own lands; we want to get our house in order. Some say, try and stop interfering with our lives. What we do in our countries has nothing to do with you."

Except the fact that "the Arab basement"--who, as Thomas Friedman says, "hate us more than they love life"--and thus wants the "of mass destruction" Abdullah Al Osama doesn't.

Which is why we are liberating Iraq.

Islam must move beyond being "a religion of fear," as Abdul Maseeh calls Islam
("Free Inquiry." Spring 2003, p. 39). Or there will only be death between Believer and non-Believer.

After 9/11, this has everything "to do with [us].

Al Osama MUST WANT MORE than what he says alone.
