Letter: Fighting terror at home

In response to Elie Dvorin’s piece “The painful truth,” I’d like to propose the following: If a show of “strong commitment to defeating terrorism” and an “unequivocal condemnation” of such vicious acts from a majority of the world’s Muslims will help “Islam to reclaim any legitimacy,” then pose a similar request to U.S. citizens.

We are not innocents in this situation. Show a commitment to the end of the regime that has labeled its brand of terrorism “war on Iraq” and offer an unequivocal condemnation of the vicious acts perpetrated by the government we as a country elected. If we could do that maybe we could reclaim our legitimacy as a nation of democracy and good will.
