    Reading about Bin Laden

    Reading about Bin Laden right now. There is an interesting comparison between him and John Brown and the Harper Ferry raid in the book.


    "John Brown's raid or The raid on Harpers Ferry; in many books the town is called "Harper's Ferry" with an apostrophe-s.[1]) was an attempt by the white abolitionist John Brown to start an armed slave revolt in 1859 by seizing a United States arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia. Brown's raid, accomplished by 20 men in his party, was defeated by a detachment of U.S. Marines led by Col. Robert E. Lee. John Brown had originally asked Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, both of whom he had met in his formative years as an abolitionist in Springfield, Massachusetts..."

    Bin Laden has been presenting to his followers with similar arguments when recruiting them, telling people that he has written and handed to the United States his "Declaration of Jihad." Bin Laden claims to be turning to war because the sheiks in Saudi Arabia have resisted all more peaceful lines of protest. (page 7 , Chapter 1 Context for understanding Bin Laden's Aims) from the book Through Our Enemies' eyes by Michael Scheuer ISBN 978-1-59797-162-1
