"It's important to know what our enemy is thinking."

Next year, book publisher Doubleday will release English translations of Al-Qaeda writings - pieces from Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahri.

Their reason for this? "It's important to know what our enemy is thinking," according to Doubleday spokesperson Suzanne Herz.

And the motivation for this? Perhaps money, fear-mongering, or hate-mongering?

Can't help but wonder if - at a time when what we really need is to step back and have some intelligent thought about our differences - this will only result in a further polarization of the cultures.
