Someone Tell the Kids

Date: January 6, 2002
Author: Thomas L. Friedman
QUOTE: To counter [bin Laden's] authentic message of hate, you need an authentic messenger of progress, tolerance and modernism. But there are very few such messages or messengers in the Arab-Muslim world today.

ABSTRACT: The only way to counter the message in the Middle East of the extreme hatred proferred by Extremist Muslims is for native voices to offer back a counter message of extreme support and extreme peace which up until now the ruling regimes have been wont to do--and we have not required them to do so either.
