Worthy cause of the day:
Relevant to Divine Misconceptions: “Not getting the 'r' word”: This article is akin to what I discussed on Friday, accusing journalists of frequently being unaware of the relevance of religion to current events. The examples given are the recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai and the rants of Osama bin Laden, neither of which make any sense except in the context of Islam. As I said before: Muslim terrorists themselves do not deny their Islamic motivations. Denying the connection means that one does not understand terrorists, and if one does not understand the enemy, it makes fighting them all the more difficult.
