Okay, just my two cents. I won't even bother reading the whole discussion for it is lengthy, but neither could you care less since this is just my
I've read a comment in another thread the other day about his connection to al-quaeda and for people doubting the validity of some information
revolving around fort hood, the words "apologist" and "appeaser" came up... This was to define the state of mind of a person in denial of radical
islamism. I kinda hate that definition.
The reason people are doubting all of this because they're opening up to a more leftist perception, being aided by cataclysmic events as 9/11 and
the contineous stressing of "clash of civilizations" type of scenarios (see the assault on the holocaust museum in DC and the preceeding news of
"domestic militia", there's always fresh info coming up) since the extreme of patriotism furthers the doubt in skeptics..
So the skeptics are better off because by denying radical islamism they keep emotion out of the debate.
This is for one because it doesn't matter what you think.
Secondly, this provides some degree of safety from exploitation of said agitated state of mind people usually would adapt to when they sense they are
under siege and they just go on to join the flock.
So just to defend the "apologists"...Terrorism to me never has been about a muslim conspiracy..it doesn't play a pre-dominant role in our society
and india has suffered just as much during the mumbai attacks (from the psychological shock-and-awe standpoint, maybe not the actual death toll) yet
nobody talks about that. Over the years there's even been attacks from ...I shall refrain from using the term "radical" since it's just a social
lable and I could call myself "radical", yet this has nothing to do with tolerating violence as a means of coercion...so I'm just gonna call them
"Maoists". Maoists have attacked india, too, just like muslims (who, even if not having personal expiriences with kashmir might as well be enraged
by details surrounding said issue of the kashmir border region!) yet they find no mention here and neither is China branded a "maoist
It's simply that we care to much about ourselves for our sake alone. We need to open up and take into account who is carrying out atrocities and who
is only in an agitated mood towards us! The Fort Hood killer didn't have contacts with a terrorist, only with a radically-minded Imam. Who happened
to be in contact with terrorists. But if you "instruct soldiers" then you still need your propaganda and the premier country in the world to produce
propaganda to be used against "the west" is the US of A.
You need to start taking care of yourselves, that's all.
