"The terrorists hate our freedom"

Are we sure it's our freedom they hate? Any chance it's our imperialism? Are terrorists truly such a homogenous group that they all have the same motive?

Naw. Freedom is just a buzzword for cartoonists being able to draw what they want, switching your religion from muslim to christian, women being able to drive and not covering themselves in sacks. Yeah they hate our imperialism too like going after the sponsors of pilots who fly into our buildings. It seems they just hate period.

I like to try to live by that Ben Franklin quote. I believe we do need to take personal resposibility for our actions and try our very best to be honest, too. I liked the article, Fred. Thanks!
