The Death of bin Ladenism is a NYT op-ed piece by Amir Taheri, a writer for Arab News. His article makes sense to me, and I sure hope he’s right. Of course, over and above bin Ladenism there’s a deeper infection in the Islamic world that needs to be stamped out as well — rampant anti-Semitism, suppression of women, and intolerance of dissent all have to go if the Arab world is going to change for the better in the long term.
