  1. Do you notice that all of the above mentioned countries, in the category of June, are Muslim countries with the exception of Thailand where the suspects are Muslims? Either those countries are occupied or they are victim of CIA-MI6-MOSSAD instigated instability. Cui bono analysis should make everyone think. With reversal of occupations, there was will be no war there again, as there was no war there before 2001. I am sorry for careless editing.Kindly remove the previous comments.

    • Ishmael, first, I want to thank you for your continued politeness throughout our discussions. I truly respect that. It is very important for people to remain civil even through disagreement.

      The problem I have with your comments in general is that you always deflect blame for Muslim terrorism. You told me that the killing of innocents was evil according to the Quran, but you seem to imply in your last comment that terrorism is OK as long as it was ‘provoked’ by occupation or the CIA. Christianity does not have such relative morality. Wrong is wrong and right is right. There are no grey areas. You are either in obedience to God or you are not. Nothing can ‘provoke’ you into evil. You are 100% responsible for your actions. Blaming others when you do evil is also not allowed in American courts.

      Further, almost every statement you make is full of conspiracy theories. Things that can’t be proven and go completely against all established facts. These facts are confirmed through many, many governments, the Red Cross and other agencies. Even by Muslim governments.

      As for no violence before 2001, how can you explain the 3 and 7 day wars instigated by Middle Eastern Muslim countries against the country of Israel? How can you explain the endless number of bombings by terrorists in market places, subways, airplanes, etc. before 2001- all perpetrated by Muslims? It is simply incorrect to say that there was no Muslim violence before 2001.

      Muslims MUST accept responsibility for their actions and for the actions of their countrymen before the world will take them seriously. Everyone understands that evil people will use religion to justify their evil actions. If the Muslim community condemned the actions of these terrorists and said, “This is NOT the Muslim way. These people are not true Muslims,” the world would respect them and Islam more. But Ishmael, you continue to defend these actions by saying other people ‘provoke’ them. This is tacit APPROVAL from you. Exactly the thing you said you did not do. It is because of this tacit approval of your people that terrorists continue to find sympathetic homes to house, clothe & feed them. And thus, the terrorism continues.

      • I distinguish between attacks on civilians and occupying combatants. Do you know that without the anti-occupation militant resistance the Soviets could never have been defeated.Why the militant resistance against Soviet occupiers was moral and how does it become immoral against the Judaeo-Christian occupations?

  2. […] terrorist attacks accounted for about 78% of all violent attacks in the world between Jan 1, 2011- June 28th 2011.   When trains, subways, malls & markets get blown up, Muslim terrorists are the usual […]
