Sorry - I'm a novelist, not a straight political analyst or sociological commentator, but perhaps my consequently warped view gives a new perspective. Certainly, viewing this mailing list has taught me as much about attitudes as it has about Iwar. Incidentally, I subscribe because the book I'm working on is about Iwar. One of my characters is the fictive son of a deceased 1970's terrorist - anyone know where I can find biographical details on Ulricke Meinhoff? She doesn't seem to have been as widely written about as you might imagine.
