Thou shalt not kill
I say enough with that "the terrorists have a distorted view of islam, and thats why the west has a distorted view of us," and face the problem.
We need to get rid of that mono view system we have in place. You have one person, that people assume has a clean soul and devine wisdom, telling them what to do. We have authoritarian regiems. These unilateral regiems are backed with 1 religious view about much of everything, so if you are arguing with that man that wants to stay in power, you are basically arguing with god.
The young men that flew straight into concrete and metal on that september morning were not angry at the United States. They were angry and frustrated with their own situation... They never had the chance to voice their view in order to progress collectively.... All they got was a single tone message telling them: "the United States is the cause of your misery, and if you dont believe me, the quran right here said that 1,400 years ago." And since these societies didnt use the young mens' input and potential to develop any advancements, NOT EVEN WEAPONS (major necessity to them,) they decide to use the only thing they're left with; their bodies.
