Anatomy of a Holy Terrorist
Tehelka | Submitted by: Soylent
A great article on Bin Laden's background and motives. "Osama bin Laden's icy violence has a certain genealogical validation: his father, having built the mosque at Mecca where the Kaabah is located, and the mosque at Medina, is doubly blessed. Osama sold himself to the conservative Saudi royalty by doing restoration work on the Dome of the Rock at half the cost price (and still, inexplicably, like Milo Minderbinder in Catch-22, made a killing)."
