Why They Terrorize Us

From a former Muslim terrorist:


"...I remember how we used to laugh in celebration whenever people on TV proclaimed that the sole cause for Islamic acts of terror like 9/11, the Madrid bombings and 7/7 was Western foreign policy..."

"...what drove me and many others to plot acts of extreme terror within Britain and abroad was a sense that we were fighting for the creation of a revolutionary worldwide Islamic state that would dispense Islamic justice..."

Hey, he forgot to say, "We fight because we hate Bush and Cheney!"

The post and the link above is propaganda. Here is what I posted to comments section in that tabloid paper.

"Any chance he is being paid or has negotiated a plea for this little reformative act he is performing? I would bet my life that it is simplistic propaganda and all you people (previous 21 posters to propaganda machine)are happy to put the lid on any debate about western oppression and hijacking of the oil economies in the middle east has anything to do with it. Baloney"

Your post is being reviewed for content and will be choosen for posting based on our criteria.

I wonder why they have 21 posts that celebrate this propaganda and none that calls it out for the BS that it is. Of course they use religious content to motivate these warriors.

Make sure you check back there for my post JG.

Rustico, so when we leave Iraq, do you think they will stop ?

Below is a list of Sunni terrorist groups and their stated goals. Most are aimed at creating an Islamist state in (insert country name here) and/or the destruction of Israel. I think that the statements by Mr. Butt are along the same lines.

Among the current identified countries that terrorists want to convert to Islamic States are: Phillippines, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, India, Algeria, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Israel, Yemen.

There are likely others. Once they control these countries, do you think there might be other terrorist groups that rise up to control some other regions ?

* (ASG): Separatist. Aims for the establishment of an Islamic state in the Southern Philippines.

* Al-Gama'at al-Islamiya (GI): The violent overthrow of the Egyptian Government and establishment of an Islamic state and the removal of Western influence from the Arab world.

No. Why would they?

Oh GMAFB. Why don't they give the guy a turban and have him holding one of those fizzing cartoon bombs while they are at it?

Read the 9/11 report. Read OSB's own words. Read anything except this crappy propaganda.

I have no love for Islam (or any religion for that matter), but given our track record in the Middle East I can't see how anyone would be surprised at their response.

read the article

If you read the article, it actually asks and tells Muslims to renounce terror.

Submitted by NotCranky on July 2, 2007 - 7:15pm.

What is your point? Why wouldn't a propaganda piece in a British tabloid magazine ask Muslims to renounce terror? Anyway the article wasn't for Muslim consumption it was for Christian British tabloid reader consumption.It was a brainwashing piece or a hoax. I really wish it was the latter, but I doubt it.

I get the impression that it is not just a propaganda piece because it actually holds muslims accountable and tells them that they need to change their ways.

The usual and dishonest way is to blame the U.S., blame Israel, blame Iraq, blame the world because it is not Islamic enough. The writer gets to the heart of the matter and suggests that in order to evolve as a society, the ummah has to give up the self-victimization and also tells the Western society that they shouldn't be pandering and accomodating the islamists.

Compared to all the other stuff I've read, this looked like an honest dialogue.

Dr. MM/FSD, your unimpeachable examples are pearls before swine. As is your reasonable amplification, s-.
