    There are 3 different kinds of terrorism according to Frederick J. Hacker
    and Cynthia Combs
    Crusaders, Criminals, Crazies. of these only criminals are easily recognized.-as was the case with Arfan Qadeer Bhatti in Oslo recently
    The crux in this trial, as it was in sentencing Alan Harry Goodman back in -1982 is “where to draw the line in the Twilight zone between Crusaders and crazies, between Allen Goodman and Naveed Haq.
    Justitia is supposed to be blind ,but to people like Daniel Pipes and Prime minister Menachem Begin who described Alan Harry Goodman as mentally ill justitia is biased.

    I am glad both you and the victims of Naveed Haq’s action let compassion and sense of justice guide your “ruling” in this case, and that you focus your attention on gun control and if I might add: the “Columbineization” of the American society.

    I’ve changed the headline. My original intent was to use the term “Arab-American” since I wanted readers to see this issue through the prism of Arab-American relations in this country. I wanted to point to Haq & this incident as part of a broader problem of how we relate to this ethnic minority in our country. But since Pakistanis are not Arab I guess I have to change the headline to be accurate.
