No I would not dispute that but they were not there before the War On Terror came into existence and we attacked Iraq. Do you dispute that?
Hezbollah did not exist before. They came into existance after Israeli agressions had already occured numerous times.
A similar bombing in March in Tall Afar, a town near the Syrian border that also has a large Turkmen population, left more than 80 dead. Shoppers were lured to their death by the promise of free flour from the back of a truck. The reprisal attack(the next day) claimed the lives of 70 Sunnis
It's pretty clear that these attacks were targeting other Muslims. The terrorist targeted the marketplace in both instances to kill as many civilians as possible. If they were going to kill coalition forces they would have driven to an army base or outpost. There's a definite power struggle between the Shiite and the Sunni sects. This has been going on since Muhammad died, so nothing really new here. The west finally stuck their noses right into the middle of a century old conflict.

Maybe it's a stupid question moderate Muslims (or anyone else for that matter) don't feel deserves an answer.
Maybe the question was not clearly stated. I haven't posted much. I'm working on it.
Maybe the question causes a bit too much discomfort if the answer is yes, the extremism is quite worrying to those that are more moderate.
