Abstract

A reply to Professor Richard Wolin on his views on suicide bombings is presented. Professor Wolin refused to acknowledge any cause of misery in the poor world. He elevated Osama Bin Ladin to the rank of a god. The article considers these views as literally, wholly, and absolutely false. The article proposes that avoidance, falsehood, implication, and omission are not a proper response to moral inquiry.
