I don't see any anti-masonic sentiment in Mr. Bavaul's article. It would seem what he is attempting to do is delve more deeply than most into the reasoning behind the Sept. 11th attacks.

Most people are content to say that radical Islamic fundamentlists simply hate America. They hate our government for its policies around the world, especially when it comes to Israel, and they hate our views on personal freedom, because they see that freedom as the path to sin. This is simple and easy to digest. However, is it not possible that there are deeper levels of reasoning behind the attacks? I think most people see Islamic fundamentalists as close-minded, ignorant, barbaric madmen. And while there certainly is some validity to that, assuming that there are no inetelligent, learned men and women working with and through these extremists is extremely dangerous.

First off, you cannot deny the level of involvment of Freemasonry within the fabric of history. The problem stems from whether you see Freemasons as puppeteers, pulling the strings from behind the scenes, or as something less sinister. I tend to see them as a little less sinister than puppeteers... rather more like a collection of intelligent men trying to influence the world and thus make it a better place (at least from their view).

Reguardless, there are people who see Freemasons as sinister and evil puppeteers trying to rule the world from behind the scenes. And these are Americans, with access to some of the best education in the world. Is it such a jump to think that Fundamentalist Islamics might not have had this view as well? That is the point that Mr. Bauval is tryinig to make. Not that the 11th of Sept. attacks were in fact the result of Freemason activity, but rather that some may see it that way.

There will always be crackpots out there who can take ANY article, however unbiased and turn it against the other side. I don't think it's the authors fault.
