The Amazing Spectacle of Moral Relativism
Among many other things, 9/11 was a failure of human understanding [...] It was a mean and nasty and bitter attack on the United States. But it was also a failure of human beings to understand each other, to learn to love each other.
Well, okay. But in fairness to those 3000 people who died in the WTC attacks, they were never given the choice between “send al Qaeda some flowers and a box of chocolate covered cherries” and “death by immolation or grudging 100 story swan dive.”
But that’s just nitpicking, I guess. You know — jihadis are from Mars, ordinary Americans going to work on a sunny September morning with no thought in the world of Islamic fundamentalism or some freakishly tall bearded fanatic’s dreams of reestablishing the Caliphate and forcing Muslim rule across the globe, they’re from Venus.

Sure. But in their defense, it was an Islamist thing. We wouldn’t understand…
