Taliban is the political arm, Al-Q is the "warrior" arm.

Similar to what Sein Fein was to the IRA.

This is not even remotely true.

Because... you like Sein Fein and feel for the IRA?

Did you know....my great uncles and and great grandfather, gr-gr-grandfather used to do fundraising events in Canada for the IRA? Supporting the homeland and all that.

It isn't true because.....you don't like the idea. Not because my analogy is faulty.

Kinda like that...



Except you forgot one ... The Muslim Brotherhood and Gadhafi says that the Brotherhoold is connected to the JiHad I don't follow all of these terms but just thought i'd add it cause it has been a very active organization lately

It isnt true because it is wrong, not because I do not approve.

Oh, and I dodged an IRA bomb by minutes once so be sure to thank your grandaddy for me.

I never met him or any of them, and considering some of the things they did do personally I doubt that you dodging a bomb would have caused any of them a moments pity.

Howdy friend. You know? The more I think about the 2...its just about dominance and hatred...and evil. Beyond stating that...its just pointless to even give them the discussion time.
