Recently there has been a lot of discussion about western Islamic groups denouncing terrorism. Like many of us I said ‘Finally!’ and started reading more about who was saying what. And, just as I was afraid, the media isn’t looking close enough at the story to give it an accurate account. With the media, things aren’t always what they seem.
I know, there are probably hundreds of articles written throughout the blogosphere with this title, but I wanted to take a look at the one thing that I think the current group of terrorists are right about. When Al Qaeda decides to attack an American, they don’t care if that American is white, black, yellow, rich, poor, southern, etc. All they see is an American joined together by more common goals than separate us from each other. So why can’t we see that same thing?
