That being said, will some one please tell me why they did it? A few weeks after the attacks, Newsweek or Time Magazine (I forget which one) had a cover story on why they hate us. At last! I though for sure I was going to find out what these people we call "terrorist" perceive as having been done to them by us. Because surely they must have some belief about us that motivated them to do this. No one sacrifices their life to kill thousands without having felt terribly wronged. So I delved into the article, anxious to find out what exactly they thought we did to them. Much to my disappointment, I could not understand the article at all. This was probably due mostly to my learning disability, which makes me unable to understand anything that can't be explained in only a few sentences.
I think we as a people are left ignorant and incomplete by not having at least an idea of what these "terrorists" think we did to wrong them. To just say they are "evil" means there is only one point of view in the world and that one is ours. I know they had a point of view different than ours. I know it didn't justify killing but I need to know what that point of view was so I can learn from it. To ignore the kind of rage they had against us and dismiss it as evil prevents us from learning from that disaster. And if we don't learn from it, weren't all those lives lost for nothing?
Will those of you that have an understanding of the events and beliefs that motivated these people to attack us, please explain some of to me here? Briefly please, because of my learning disability. All answers that are just rages against them or include accusations of them being "evil" will be deleted. Not because your opinion is not valid, because all opinions are valid. But because I've read those opinions already for the last 5 years. I'm looking for explanations based on what is known about the people who did this and what they believe we did to them or why they believed we were a threat to them. What events, religious beliefs, cultural beliefs and misunderstandings led these people to give up their own lives to kill us?
