How did the Middle Eastern world become a hotbed for terrorists? It is not an easy answer. Just having a group of people upset at the way things are
is not enough to push a person into being a terrorist. It is not the rifle that gives a fighter power. It is the mind. The operators of the madrassa
know this to be true.
The madrassa is one of the reasons why we have so many willing to die. A madrassa is an Islamic school. A type of seminary for guerillas. Children are
recruited at a young age from economically poor areas. They promise the parents that their children will receive food and education in exchange for
attending their madrassa. This sounds like a pretty good deal to a parent until the child comes home brainwashed.
They are taught that the Infidels must die and that to die a martyr is a wonderful thing. While our children are learning their ABC's, the children
in the madrassa are learning martyrdom songs and singing the praises of other martyrs.
They are taught the word of the prophet Mohammed AND also the joys of killing or being killed for Islam. These madrassas are adding fuel to a steadily

an innocent, he is killing a person who is morally corrupt and who God would punish anyway.
This has everything to do with an agenda created by those who fund the madrassa. I have stated before that one should follow the money to find the
The easiest way to stop the flood if suicide bombers and insurgents is to start funding our own madrassas, while closing down the militant ones.
Parents will be more than happy to send their children to a place where they do not have to worry about whether their children will live to be
It is so hard to find peace when so many minds have been poisoned. In the end, we all want the same thing as rational human beings...life, liberty and
pursuit of happiness, but also a better life for our children.
I am interested in hearing other constructive points of view. We should try moving towards a solution instead of rehashing the past. Because once the
thought is out there for everyone to see that peace is possible, only then can we move forward and get along.
We have all had our own madrassa, but the fact that we are here in this forum means that we have the ability to see past "what we are told" and get
a glimpse of truth. Believe it or not, we are all in this together.
