Does U.S. Policy Help Breed Terror?

SHAHID MAHMOOD
Mahmood was an editorial cartoonist for Dawn, a national newspaper in Pakistan. He is now internationally syndicated with the New York Times Syndicate. He said today: “People become radicalized through the corruptions of an Islamist agenda, the excesses of capitalism and a heavy-handed U.S. foreign policy.”

ALI ABUNIMAH
Abunimah is co-founder of the Electronic Intifada website. In response to an alleged plot aimed at Times Square, he said today: “Given how many people have been killed in U.S. wars and occupations it’s surprising how few such attempts there are on U.S. soil. Thank goodness.” Abunimah is author of the book One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse.
