People have written, in response to my earlier posting, that unless we consider what impels the terrorists, and address their issues, we are condemned to continue being subjected to terrorism. I will tell you what impels terrorists. When I was a kid, I read comic books about evil geniuses trying to take over the entire world. We viewed it as pure fantasy. Well, pure fantasy has turned into reality, with the added ingredient of a fanatic strain of Islam. Evil genuises *are* trying to take over the world, and create a world in which this fanatic strain of Islam rules. All others, even moderate Muslims, will either be pushed into the sea or be absolutely subjugated. Taking over the world -- this is what impels them. They are certainly not impelled by the desire to establish a peaceful democratic state in the West Bank, living side by side and at peace with Israel. In order to force the world into submission, they are willing to terrorize the Western world, even to the point of murdering babies in cold blood. Now that you know what impels them -- world domination -- do you think the appropriate response is to understand them, or hunt them down and either kill them or lock them up?
