One of the Muslim clerics from Pakistan who was with the group sent to negotiate with the Taliban to hand over Osama bin Laden has been spamming mosques and Islamic centers in the United States via fax, telling them that attacking Afghanistan would be treasonous (against Islam) and that the Israelies were behind the 9/11 attacks. This seems to be an indication of what sort of negotiation took place between the Taliban and the Pakistani religious delegation. The idea that Israel was behind the attacks is very, very popular among Muslims. I guess it’s easier than believing that it was done in the name of your own religion.
