- remember they were attacking our overseas interests for a long time well before before 911 . So the US declared War on Terrorist and you don't have to be muslim either just a terrorist
The problem is much older than any modern "islamist" attacks. Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Palestine et.al. .... all have known and suffered western imperialism for well over a century. Memories in that part of the world are longer than the short attention span you seem to be propagating.
"Your interests" as defined by US (and before that British of French) policy, is really absolutely none of your business. Claiming an interest doesn't mean actually being entitled to it.
For centuries, the imperial powers have simply imposed their views and "interests" while the affected peoples had no means of fighting back. That has changed and now we all need to reconsider the natural order of things.
Just as the Imperialists didn't or don't ask what weapons they chose to suppress others, the oppressed now chose their own weapons, whether we like them or not. (Oppression, by the way, in recent times has most often meant, imposing and supporting obedient puppet regimes .. as in Iraq, Iran, etc.)
Considering the changes 911 has brought about, one might think that they have been a great deal more successful than could have been expected: - regular wars don't work anymore - civil rights in the West have been sacrificed to protection against these new forms of fighting - the cost of conventional wars has financially crippled the USSR and now the USA - as a result, former 3rd World nations, like China or India, have become powerful enough, to make even the US prez dance to their whistle
Time, to smell the coffee and change attitudes. Time to come off the pedestal and negotiate with the so-called terrorists, before they bring down the world economy even more.

The topic is whether or not most terrorists are Muslims. I gave you the point that, in the context of the discussion, Israel has engaged in activities that one could label as terrorism, thus arguing the original position. But, as usual, the thread has to become the unfortunate host to another one of your tired and stilted "lecture series". Ok, you're the authority on the Palestinian problem (waits for km to say, "No it's an Israeli problem"). And you'll rebut every post made until more people, well... go the Give it time route.
Lea's road sign was just one of several that I would post along the way here. I would favor this one at your entry point...
That's also off-topic... personal as opposed to substantive comment is no more useful for being delivered by signs than with words. I noticed your Israel concession but I was replying to carp who disagrees with it.
