13. I agree. I listened to NPR this morning and was
disheartened to hear all the talk about Al-Q and religious fervor. A few times they did mention that while responsibility was claimed it had not been verified. But then continued to act as if it were a cell of Al-Q.

I think it will be important to focus on the CAUSES of terrorism rather than the results. We need to address it proactively rather than reactively. Until we are prepared to admit our complicity in fertilizing the soil within which terrorism germenates we will never make any progress.

This has far more to do with politics and economics than it will ever have to do with religion.
