After the tragedy of the terrorist attack in New York, it is important to understand why such things can happen. It is important to go back to the root of this evil and not just be satisfied with simplified answers which don't disturb anyone, answers that are "politically correct" but will only perpetuate the problem. Acts of violence and military retribution will not solve the problem but will beget more hatred, more desperate people, and more violence thus creating a truly vicious cycle of terror.
Where do these violent acts come from and why are there men ready to carry them out? Only a fair and lucid understanding of the roots of the problem will allow an answer. What makes men, with red turbans around their head, ready to fly a Boeing 767 to a building head on in this tragic suicide that took the lives of thousands of people?
