I can see your side of things, but to Muslims they feel as much disdain towards fundamentalists as Christians do towards the Westboro Baptists.
I guess what that means that within all religions, there are going to be bad people, hiding behind the religion.
I remember growing up and listening to the news about the suicide bombers in Israel. I live in the U.K and I can remember having a discussion with a
teacher in school and he said 'I'm just glad the I.R.A are catholics. If they were muslim, we would also be the victims of suicide bombers.'
What really grinds my gears is the fact that so called muslim clerics, brainwash youngsters into going out and making martyrs of themselves. Yet,
it's not their children they are encouraging to do this, in fact if they feel that strong, why aren't they doing it themselves?
Religion should be about the brotherhood of man, looking out for each other, etc, etc. But when people see the foreign policies of the west, trying to
convert them to a western lifestyle and killing innocent muslims in the name of this.This gives the clerics an opportunity to tap into the disaffected
youth, promising them ridiculous claims of what lies in wait in paradise.
The only answer I can see in ending these problems is to do an about turn on foreign policy. But unfortunately, whilst we are living within a global
economy, with corporations and banks dictating this policy I honestly cannot see this happening.
So, as far as that goes, Terrorism will continue, Liberties will be lost and the losers? Well that's the ordinary people who really just wanna work,
earn money to support their families and make life as comfortable as possible for themselves.
