The Terrorist’s Morality
The Telegraph reports the following:
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, yesterday urged America to recognise that terrorists can "have serious moral goals".
Dr Williams said that no government should act as its own judge on whether to launch military action against a rogue state.
"Violence is not to be undertaken by private persons," he said. "If a state or administration acts without due and visible attention to agreed international process, it acts in a way analogous to a private person. It purports to be judge of its own interest."
Mind you, he wasn’t speaking here of our actions in Iraq. Rather, he said, "in its criticism of al-Qa’eda
, America loses the power of self-criticism and becomes trapped in a self-referential morality." And to think, this guy isn’t even French.
