"Can you (O men of Faith) entertain the hope that they will believe in you? - seeing that a party of them heard the Word of Allah, and perverted it knowingly after they understood it. Behold! when they meet the men of Faith, they say: "We believe": but when they meet each other in private they say: "Shall you tell them what Allah has revealed to you, that they may engage you in argument about it before your Lord?" - do you not understand (their aim)?" [Qur'an 2:75-76]

I understand their aim, the people of New York understand their aim, the people of Madrid are just learning of it. The only question is that are they truly "perverting" the Word? They certainly claim to understand it.

I am reminded of the video of UBL meeting with a fellow nutcase after 911. Spouting scripture and bragging that he knew the building would fall. It seems that this passage applies...
