The Religious Roots of the War on Terror

Paul Sperry, writing in Front Page Magazine, brings us encouraging news that

Now for the first time, a key Pentagon intelligence agency involved in homeland security is delving into Islam's holy texts to answer whether Islam is being radicalized by the terrorists or is already radical. Military brass want a better understanding of what's motivating the insurgents in Iraq and the terrorists around the globe, including those inside America who may be preparing to strike domestic military bases. The enemy appears indefatigable, even more active now than before 9/11.

Are the terrorists really driven by self—serving politics and personal demons? Or are they driven by religion? And if it's religion, are they following a manual of war contained in their scripture?

If we may be so bold, we would like to suggest that the Brass use our search engine and enter the names "Arlandson" and "Bostom" for a fairly comprehensive view of the scriptural and historical bases of current Islamacist behavior.
