It is important to realize at the outset that a victory for those forces, of which bin Ladenism is only the most extreme, is in two senses of the word impossible. Impossible, obviously, from a moral point of view and from the viewpoint of survival. It has taken us a long time to evolve a society that, however imperfectly, respects political pluralism and religious diversity and the emancipation of the sexual life. A society that attempts to employ the objective standards of scientific inquiry and that has brought us the Hubble telescope and the unraveling of the chain of DNA. Clearly, there can be no compromise between this and the ravings of those who study dreams and are deluded by wild prophecies and who regard women as chattel and unbelievers as sacrificial animals. For them, the achievements of science are nothing, while the theft of weapons of mass destruction counts as a holy task. Their degradation is bottomless.

Nęstu daga veršur vęntanlega mikil umręša um žessa atburši ķ öllum fjölmišlum. Horfši į įhugaveršan žįtt į Sky um daginn. Žar var mešal annars rętt viš björgunarmenn sem voru staddir viš turnana. Frįsagnir žeirra voru margar ansi svakalegar. Mešal annars kom fram aš fyrstu slökkvilišsmennirnir sem létust voru aš reyna aš komast inn ķ turnana og uršu undir fólki sem hafši kastaš sér nišur.

Svakalegt.
