Reading through the letters to The Daily Times, I came upon the following titled Gladstone and the Quran:
The West understands that Islam is the source of our strength. That is why they insist that the Muslims continue to live in the misery under Western domination. This is why the West backs the present Muslim rulers who use force to suppress peaceful political efforts to re-establish Islam as a way of life. The West fights the re-establishment of the Caliphate out of fear that its hegemony over Muslim lands and resources will end, not out of compassion for the Muslims.
This goes to show that Muslims might not agree with the tactics of Al Qaeda but they, the majority of Muslims from my experience, do support the ultimate goal of Al Qaeda - the re-establishment of the Caliphate.
By the way, most Westerners would call Islam the source of a lot of things but strength ain't one of them.
