NOTES

INTRODUCTION
1
Many also praised the attack, and among those who condemned the attacks of September n on the United States, many had, for decades, tacitly or openly supported Arab terrorists who targeted innocent civilians and children in many other countries, such as Israel. Notorious but not unique, for example, was the Holy Land Foundation, a United States—based Islamic “charity,” which after the World Trade Center massacre was placed on the United States government's list of groups that support terror.
2
Few of those making this argument suggested that Muslim clerics and authorities have a responsibility to encourage the haters to examine whether their hatred of us is justified, and to repent.

Our Constitution and most civilized societies forbid the torture and cruel and unusual punishment of criminals. Many in our society look upon certain Islamic countries’ practice of amputating the limb of a thief or meting out analogous punishments for other crimes as savage, brutal, and primitive (while ignoring the brutality that occurs in many of our not-so-enlightened prisons).
