I had been quietly watching for word about Specialist Johnson once I heard of her disappearance. She was an unlucky cook whose group made a wrong turn in a sandstorm and was captured. My heartstrings, too, were pulled wondering if her young daughter would ever get to see her again. For many days no one was sure if she or the others were alive.

We need to recognize that there are many jihads, and many democracies. Jihad, at its best, and in its meaning for most Muslims the world over, is the struggle to find justice, equality, and freedom for the internal and external self. 49 Palestinian suicide bombers – men and women alike – are juxtaposed against the Israeli army as part of the US campaign against terrorism, and for Israel.
