There are those who would say the war against terrorism has no religious aspects to it, that it is made religious only by virtue of President Bush’s “short-sighted, personal evangelical beliefs.”\
If anyone doubts there is a deep religious aspect to the War on Terror, just listen to the words of the enemy.
In his most recent video release – the first in about three years – terrorist leader Osama bin-Laden had this to say:
There are two solutions to stopping it. One is from our side, and it is to escalate the fighting and killing against you. This is our duty, and our brothers are carrying it out. The second solution is from your side. I invite you to embrace Islam. It will also achieve your desire to stop the war as a consequence, because as soon as the warmongering owners of the major corporations realize that you have lost confidence in your democratic system and have begun to look for an alternative, and this alternative is Islam, they will run after you to please you and achieve what you want to steer you away from Islam.”
I doubt anyone but Democrats are going to suddenly convert to Islam, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see one of the Dem contenders, like Dennis Kucinich at least attempt it to draw attention to his never-was candidacy.
Remember, those were not RC airplanes that slammed through the World Trade Center buildings. They were the real thing. The enemy is serious about winning this war, even if the Democrats are not.
