Moral Clarity about the War Against Islamic Terror
In the wake of September 11th, much of the West has questioned what it must have done to deserve such hatred. Dennis, however, presents the issue as a fundamental struggle between good and evil.

Major Points of the Lecture:
1. A large portion of Islam today is death-oriented, a fact which is often difficult for Westerners to comprehend.

3. Consumed with the ideas of multiculturalism, the Western world is often afraid to acknowledge that terrorism is not a product of economic woes but rather an issue of inferior cultural values.
