I'd be happy to debate the merits of religion, and how all religions have reprehensible teachings, but that has nothing to do with a debate about terrorism and due process. I mean, do you honestly believe that all muslims - unlike every other religion out there - have a literal interpretation of their holy book, and that they all universally "hate us for our freedom"? Excuse me for not buying that our - that is to say "western" - values are the reason for terrorist attacks. I happen to think reality is more complex and nuanced than that. Between getting involved in other countries' politics, support of Israel's occupation, several wars, and so on, there really is no shortage of explanations that don't start and end with "they're muslims".
If religious values were the most important factor, I imagine we'd be seeing a lot more terrorism in my country, with about 2% muslims, compared to the United States, where most estimates seem to be around 0.5%. This despite the fact that both countries have largely the same values, to the extent that you can actually measure that. We've had one major terrorist attack, carried out by a christian citizen of this country, ironically motivated - at least in his own words - by a fear that muslims were a threat to western civilization.
Even more importantly, though, terrorists in general make up such a tiny fraction of the total world population that to generalize is just dishonest. It's not made any easier by the way in which we might define our count the total number of terrorists, either. If the roles were reversed, it seems highly unlikely we wouldn't be calling Blackwater/Xe a terrorist organization ( or at least many of their actions as terrorism ), just as an example. You just can't blame it all on the values of a particular religion, and act like there's some war going on between different value systems.
I don't even know what to say about this Nation Defense Authorization Act. It does seem to illustrate quite nicely that this isn't, and has never been, about "protecting freedom". Or maybe the people responsible really do think that terrorists hate us for our freedom, and they're trying to fix the problem that way. That is, as far as I can see, the most logical explanation.
