Thank you, Carpe Diem Tomorrow, for your great 9/11 cartoon!

I stumbled upon this on Carpe Diem Tomorrow. It’s admittedly an over-simplification of a complex issue, but it does accurately assess at least one aspect of that issue.

Obviously there was more going on in the attacks than simply they were Muslims and did it for Allah. As I’ve heard theorized, the 9/11 hijackers (and bin Laden) cited the U.S. involvement in Israel and Saudi Arabia–in short, its foreign policy–as reasons. If even one of them, though, did it believing that he’d go to Islam heaven with the virgins and whatnot, well, that’s a pretty scary thing, and for him, a pretty shitty thing, since it doesn’t fucking exist.
