This MSNBC article (link via Dangerousmeta) describes the reaction among the students and teachers at a madrisa (see this article or more on madrisas) to the videotape of the attack on the World Trade Center. The students had never seen the World Trade Center, New York, or a television, so seeing the footage of the attack was obviously a shock to them. Despite the fact that the students are quite possibly being trained as terrorist shock troops for the ongoing conflict in the Kashmir, they and their teacher were appalled by the footage. Many of the people who disapprove of Westerners don’t know the first thing about America. Osama bin Laden and the hijackers from the 9/11 don’t have that excuse.
