Now He Has Gone Too Far
Reading Time magazine, I just came across this letter by a Muslim reader.
I must admit that at the beginning I appreciated Osama Bin Laden and the actions he took to challenge the West and reduce the decadent Americanization that threatened to spread all over the globe. But now as I discover bin Laden’s real aims, I’m deeply shocked by his unscrupulous character. He doesn’t hesitate to kill Arab and Muslim brothers and sisters. He has lost my respect and affection.
So this reader was quite ok with, even happy about, September 11, but now that Bin Laden kills Muslims as well, he thinks he has gone too far! I would hope that this is not the prevailing view in the Muslim world.
