This is from the tract entitled “Endless Jihad.” Whoever authored it, it is misleading.
“The usual meaning of Islam in Arabic is not “peace” but “submission.” And if the terrorists were so far outside the mainstream, why did Muslims all over the world burst into joyful, spontaneous celebrations when the hijacked jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon? Why are Islamic governments afraid to show “too much” public support for the war against terrorism? Further, why are all the governments that covertly support terrorism centered in the Muslim world?”
First of all, the “celebrations” in the Middle East on Sept. 11 that some media sources released were false because it was nighttime in the Middle East when these clips were shown on TV, so they couldn’t have been from September 11.
Second of all, correlation is not causation. Just because governments that “covertly support terrorism” are mostly in Muslim countries does not mean that Islam has caused these governments to support terrorism.
