I meant to say "make war against unbelievers" in my comment

Forgot one minor detail.
ObL was the scion of one of the wealthiest families in the Middle East. So could self finance any idea or cause he could think of.

It's not a question of ideas but a lack of them. Both Dems and Islam promote a virtually identical view of American history as an evil imprint so it's hard to tell where one leaves off and the other begins.

Entire swaths of history are stripped out so Third World expats from countries with no Bill of Rights and with institutional racism can come here to study and lambaste us for gay marriage. The disconnect is stunning.

Did they read the Daily Kos and HuffPo PLUS jihadi websites? The difference in languages is an academic one. Al-Jazeera is no less American than the liberal press here.

"Whose ideas inspired thr Tsarnaev brothers tohate America?"

Has an easier question ever been asked?

All one need do is open his eyes and look at 1390 years of Islamic history of jihad, or open his ears and listen to the endless calls for "Death to America".

The ideas of course are those of Mohamed. Not Radical Mohamed or fundamentalist Mohamed just Mohamed.

But, do the ideas come from Mohamed or his God ... Satan?

How about America hating Noam Chomsky, who's got a professorship at MIT which is in the same city as where these losers lived.

Well, Chomsky is a Communist. And Communists and Islamists share one belief in common: For the greater good, THE INDIVIDUAL IS EXPENDABLE.
That is unless of course, THEY happen to be the individual in question.

It's a rather simple code: "kill the infidel". Obama bin Leadhead would rather shoot the messangers of this truth.

Zealots are generally willing to die for what they believe to be true, whether it really is true or not. Who would die for what they know to be false? Perception is everything, as they say. It all comes down to truth and the resulting worldview of that truth. Richard Fernandez explores this very question in his current article. So, it's not sincerity that is the problem, it's truth, and discovering what that truth is. And then, the real Truth must be louder, more organized and better funded than all the rest of the "truths."

One problem is that dying for Islam does not define a Muslim as a zealot. On the contrary, it is the highest form of submission to Allah. The Koran commands them to expand the faith and make against the unbelievers, so dying in Jihad furthering the will of Allah is the most perfect form of submission. They become one with Allah.
The subject of "truth" for Muslims never enters into the equation, since Islam requires total submission to Allah. I am not a scholar on Islam, but I don't even know if the concept of truth appears in the Koran. There can be no debate with Islam or even a rational critique....to do so invites death as an apostate.
