Killer's Note: 'You Caused Me to Do This'
What this Koran Cho Seung-Hui said, sounds like he could have been recruited to do the the Jihadist bidding?
There was a documentry on a PBS station Sunday on "Osama Ben Layden" and what was in the suicide note sounds simular as mention in the PBS Doc.
It was reported OBL read a book by Sayyid Qutb
"Qutb was extremely critical of many things in the United States: its racism, materialism, individual freedom, economic system, poor haircuts, triviality, restrictions on divorce, enthusiasm for sports, "animal-like" mixing of the sexes (which went on even in churches), and lack of support for the Palestinian struggle. In an article published in Egypt after his travels, he noted with disapproval the sexuality of Americans:
the American girl is well acquainted with her body's seductive capacity. She knows it lies in the face, and in expressive eyes, and thirsty lips. She knows seductiveness lies in the round breasts, the full buttocks, and in the shapely thighs, sleek legs and she shows all this and does not hide it.  And their taste in music :
In the week-long America at a Crossroads series debuting on PBS April 15, heres what stayed with Current editors Originally published in Current, April 9, 2007
Jihad: The Men and Ideas Behind Al Qaeda Sunday, April 15, 9 p.m.
The docs historical primer introduces Sayyid Qutb, an influential 20th century Egyptian ideologue who called for Islamic revolution; surveys al-Zawahiris time in prison; and reports on his and bin Ladens experiences fighting and recruiting in Afghanistan and the Sudan.
I would not discount the possibility.
Doesn't sound very Korean to me.
This bothers me too. ;-)
The first line of Chapter One ("Call me Ishmael.") is one of the most famous in American literature. Although the book initially received mostly negative reviews, Moby-Dick is now considered to be one of the greatest novels in the English language, and has secured Melville's reputation in the first rank of American writers.
In the title-is it supposed to be Korean but misspelled as Koran, or was it meant to be spelled that way?
Hard to believe an English major would not know how to spell it properly.
That depends---are you part of the conspiracy?
But the anagram of it -— “Islam Xai” -— does.
“Xai” is aoparently a Korean proper noun.
There’s also Fennimore-Cooper’s “Ishmael’s Ax” an Scandinavian poem with Ismail in it plus a book by DEN Southworth called “Ishmael” with an ax scene in it.
I go with the deranged English major myself.
Spelled properly if Arabic.
Sorry writing in not my forte “Connecting The Dots” I do better in!:)
If you're asking me if I think it's a muslim connection...hell yes, I have from the git go.
and I was kidding about the Koran/Korean thing (sheesh, I take back my winky then!)
That's all these "sources" are giving up? Seeing the quote in context might clear things up considerably. ....for instance, who is the "you" he's referring to? Bush? Jews? Infidels the world over? Ishmael's whole damn unedited note better be released to the public, and quickly.
We’re through the looking glass here, people!
