The Observer hade igår en artikel av Hassan Butt, en f.d. terrorist, som talar ut om hur de brukade skratta om de västliga mediernas analyser om varför terrorismen existerar:
When I was still a member of what is probably best termed the British Jihadi Network, a series of semi-autonomous British Muslim terrorist groups linked by a single ideology, I remember how we used to laugh in celebration whenever people on TV proclaimed that the sole cause for Islamic acts of terror like 9/11, the Madrid bombings and 7/7 was Western foreign policy.
By blaming the government for our actions, those who pushed the ‘Blair’s bombs’ line did our propaganda work for us. More important, they also helped to draw away any critical examination from the real engine of our violence: Islamic theology.
Sveriges journalister borde få in detta i sina mindre begåvade skallar.
