Quite so, I wonder if Dan Gillerman has some stats for us?
But looking at the names of the non-muslim terrorist organisations such as ETA, the real IRA and the Tamil Tigers, they are some serrious customers.
They are as much armies as they are terrorist organisations.
Dan Gillerman also mispoke when he said that only Israel suffered terrorism before 9/11. That is ignorant at best, offensive at worst. Britain was
suffering IRA bombing for the best part of 20 years. Countries like Sri Lanka have suffered Tamil Tiger bombings for decades too. Russia faced Chechen
terrorists for most of the 90's. He demonstrates the blinkers that are apparent on quite a lot of Israelis - that they are the only true victims in
When, right after 7/7. Benjamin Netanyahu said that England will now know what it is like to suffer terrorism like Israelis do I felt like punching
him in the mouth. How dare he gloss over the decades of Irish terrorism that killed dozens of British civilians. Israel is not the only country who
faces terrorists. These guys have a major chip on their shoulder.
