I'm trying to imagine a better recruiting tool for terrorists than the photos from the prison in Iraq. An angry young Moslem male is teetering on what to do with his anger and resentment. Then he sees this: the conquerors humiliating fellow Moslems with acts that are inhumane and obscene. It validates everything that he supposes, doesn't it? Is it possible that what these soldiers have done will do more to recruit terrorists than anything that's ever happened before? Osama couldn't have imagined better free publicity. It's a reminder that our hope is not in the governments and armies of humans; it is rather in the kingdom of God that continues to break through by the Risen One.
