NOT HOMEGROWN? Boris Johnson of the U.K. is an opponent of fanaticism who wonders why America has no indigenous terrorists:
"We seem to have pulled off the rare feat of breeding suicide bombers determined to attack the very society that incubated them; and the question is why. Why does America import its suicide bombers, while we produce our own?"
Look again, Mr. Johnson. Ward Churchill of the U.S. raises the same issue, but with different hopes.
"If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers (than the attack of 9-11), I'd really be interested in hearing about it."
