I have been searching for a good analysis of the motivation of Islamic terror. It appears that I have found it with this website and this author.
I have ordered a couple of Robert Spencer's books. This is what I have been looking for: an in-depth analysis of Islam, and what it extorts its followers to do. It is also a pretty good explanation of how Muslims treat non-Muslims. This is summed up by the concept of Dhimmi, and what that would mean to any country that lives under Sharia.
This is a bit worrisome to me, and it should be to the rest of the world. If the holy books of this particular religion demand total subjugation of non-believers, to the point of killing or enslaving them, it doesn't leave much room for peaceful resolution, does it? Read this article for a quick analysis of the peaceful teachings of Islam.
I found this stuff while searching for info about Mohammed Reza Tahiri-azar the Chapel Hill student who ran his SUV into a crowd at the Unversity, intending to kill as many as he could hit in the name of Allah. He has been writing helpful explanations as to why he did what he did from jail.
If this stuff doesn't scare you, I don't know what will.
