“Terrorism is not a necessary effect of religious tendencies, whether fundamentalist or secular.  Rather terrorism is born of a political encounter.  When it harnesses one or another aspect of tradition or culture, terrorism needs to be understood as a modern political movement at the service of a modern power.  As such, the genesis of the form of political terrorism responsible for the tragedy of 9/11 can be traced to the late Cold War.”—Mahmood Mamdani (photo), Good Muslim, Bad Muslim, pp. 61-62.
