Welcome

August 25, 2006

This site is here in response to the excessive paronoia, Islamophobia, and generally irrational knee-jerk reactions of fear┬áresulting from ubiquitious media coverage of terror plots. I’d like to quote fellow blogger Bruce Schneier:

The point of terrorism is to cause terror, sometimes to further a political goal and sometimes out of sheer hatred. The people terrorists kill are not the targets; they are collateral damage. And blowing up planes, trains, markets or buses is not the goal; those are just tactics. The real targets of terrorism are the rest of us: the billions of us who are not killed but are terrorized because of the killing. The real point of terrorism is not the act itself, but our reaction to the act.

And we’re doing exactly what the terrorists want.

This will be a portal for any unnecesary acts of panic, censorship, emergency landings, etc. that make their way into the news and/or blogosphere. Enjoy.
