It Started In Greeley, CO At A Dance

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/14/ar...rssnyt&emc=rss

Apparently, a church dance in Greeley, Colo., led to 9/11.

Paladin Invision Ayman al-Zawahri, left, and Osama bin Laden, from “Jihad.”



In 1948 Sayyid Qutb, an Egyptian writer who became the father of the radical Islamist movement, was sent to the United States to temper his contempt for the West. What he saw over two years — postwar consumerism, suburban lawns, men and women dancing “breast to breast” — only further inflamed his conviction that the West was the enemy of Islam and doomed.
Mr. Qutb went on to work up a pseudospiritual justification of Islamic terrorism that inspired and emboldened many, including Osama bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri. And that modest Colorado mixer — back then, Greeley was a dry town — was Mr. Qutb’s “epiphanic moment,” as Malise Ruthven, a Middle East expert, puts it in “Jihad: The Men and Ideas Behind Al Qaeda,” the first documentary in the weeklong, 11-part PBS series “America at a Crossroads.”

The jury is still out over how this fuse will be lit.

It had to be the smell of all the cow dung there. That place stinks really bad.
