Beginning on 9/11, well over 3,000 innocent U.S. men, women and children, while going about their normal activities, have been brutally murdered by radical Islamic terrorists. I am not including in this response those killed in Western Europe, countless numbers in the Middle East and elsewhere. And what is the goal of radical Islamic terrorists? To annihilate every soul on the face of the Earth who does not ascribe to their ideology. I ask: Why is this terror objective, that is so clear to most Americans, so hard for university scholars to fathom or understand as the reason for increased media coverage?
