John Karakash, dean emeritus of engineering at Lehigh University, wrote an Op Ed on how extremism can spawn terrorism. He said all forms of extremism blind and distort. Political extremists in Washington deflected the public's anger from Osama bin Laden to Saddam Hussein by distorting reality and hinting that he had played a role in Sept. 11. "Religious extremism, which marred Christianity with the invention of the rack and the stake, is now history. But it continues to mar Islam in several lands, feeding terrorism, now mostly anti-Americanism…We can kill terrorists if we see them, but we can do little to dry up the widely distributed sources that produce them, which include schools. To prevail over terrorism we have to learn how to dry up its sources. We cannot win this war alone."
