Ikonos photo of World Trade Center

I know next to nothing about the Middle East, so I’m hungry for anything that can educate me about the history, religion- anything that can help me take a few steps towards understanding why those people did what they did.
I found a lengthy article on Islamic terrorism on the website of The Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses, New Delhi, India. If you read it and want to discuss it, please email me.

The Ikonos satellite took a great picture of the twin towers before they fell.
