In an interview with Radio 4's Today programme, marking 10 years since the 9/11 attacks, the former prime minister said: "The reason why these people are radicalised is not because of something we're doing to them. They believe in their philosophy. "I see this out in the Middle East all the time. There is this view, which I'm afraid I believe is deeply naive in the West, that somehow these people, you know, misunderstand our motives, that we've confused them, that that's why they've become radicalised. "Understand one thing - they believe in what they believe in because they believe their religion compels them to believe in it."
I suppose he has to believe this to sleep at night.
To try and claim that the invasion of Iraq, continued support of Israel whatever their actions toward the Palestinians, drone strikes in Pakistan has not radicalised many, many Muslims is typical of this idelogically blinded cun*.

What have you witnessed now is only the beginning of a string of attacks that will continue and become stronger until you pull your forces out of Afghanistan and Iraq. And until you stop your financial and military support to America and Israel.
I concur. You go into their homeland and pretty much take over the entire thing. I wonder what would happen if another country did that to America. Here is an interesting question, if the shoe was on the other foot- would you become a 'terrorist' against the imposing country?
