VDH On Al Qaeda

Friday, May 11, 2007  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The opening of Victor Davis Hanson’s new column:

Why would Albanian-speaking Muslim refugees from the Balkans try to murder American soldiers? After all, the United States – not bin Laden’s rag-tag jihadists – saved Bosnia and Kosovo? And we did that by bombing the capital of a Christian European nation.

But then, why did a mixed-up Albanian Muslim in Salt Lake City, one Sulejman Talovic, go on a shopping-mall shooting spree? Five innocents were killed in the attack before the murderer himself was shot and killed.

And why, after pouring billions of dollars into Afghanistan, did poor, mixed-up Omeed Aziz Popal, an Afghan Muslim, try to run over several innocents in San Francisco near a Jewish center in September 2006?

Or, for that matter, why did an angry Muslim Pakistani gun down Jews in Seattle?

Or, again, why earlier last year, did a 22-year-old Iranian-American Muslim drive his sport utility vehicle into a crowded pedestrian zone at the University of North Carolina?

Read the whole thing for the professor’s answer.
