 While I appreciate Dr. Gushee's sentiments, I think a more fundamental question has to be addressed, and that is What were the conditions that created the sentiments of 9/11 in the first place. Lest we forget, Arabs throughout the Mideast rejoiced at the 9/11 attacks. While not the only reaction in predominantly Muslim countries, the rejoicing sprang from long-held resentment and frustration. We as a nation have never fully grappled with the why so many supported the attacks.
