In a new video obtained somehow by the U.S. government prior to its official release by al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden says that we can avoid further terrorist attacks by embracing Islam.
Suppose that you were faced with a choice between embracing Islam or dying in a terrorist attack. Which would you choose if you HAD to choose one or the other? I'm inclined to say that I would choose the latter, unless I could somehow get away with pretending to do the former. But suppose you couldn't pretend. Which would you choose?
