Required reading on September 11th:

Hatred of Western Civilization: Why Terrorists Attacked America by J. David Lewis

Reflecting America: World Trade Center Memorial Should Celebrate America’s Producers by Diane Durante
The people who worked at the World Trade Center (WTC) were all productive people: they were there to do a job and earn money.

Is Islam at Fault? by Warren Ross
There is a lot of confusion about the nature of Islam, and the extent to which it is the religion itself, as opposed to an “extremist” wing of it, that breeds terrorism. President Bush believes that Islam has been “hijacked” by the terrorists for their own use, and that Islam itself is a peace-loving religion. Is that true? Or is there something about Islam that promotes, condones or ideologically endorses terrorism? Is it a fundamental aspect of Islam, or a perverted interpretation?

A New Yorker Remembers the World Trade Center by Andrew West
“[P]eople tell me about pilgrimages to some dank pest-hole in a jungle where they go to do homage to a crumbling temple, to a leering stone monster with a pot belly, created by some leprous savage. Is it beauty and genius they want to see? Do they seek a sense of the sublime? Let them come to New York.”
