Sadly, Mahmoud Kahil passed away on February 11th, 2003. We were thankful for his contribution to
this site and his concurrence that terrorism is never warranted. While his political outlook often differed
from the managers of the CAT site, he expressed it with style and an irreverence for the insanity which often

Mr. Kahil will be missed!
