Reader comment on item: What Do Terrorists Want? [A Caliphate and Shari'a]

Submitted by SULTAN (Turkey), Jul 27, 2005 at 10:27

I dont believe that radical muslims are trying to get all the world by terrorist attacks. This is a very simple answer.They cant even be a mosquito comparied to giant USA. There must be a very complicated explanation which we cant understand.

The terrorists are attacking everywhere: Bali, Egypt, İstanbul, Madrid, London, New York, Kenya, İsrael ,everywhere...Something really strange is happening , but who is doing this and why is not clear. All of the bombers seem to belong to İslam, but still this doesn't make much sense.On the other hand many İslamic countries have their own reasons to dislike or hate USA. İsrael -Phalestenian issue is one very important reason, oil is another, Arab dictator friends of USA is different issue.

From my point as a muslim Turk, I lost all my sympathy to USA since Mr Bush became president. Not because that I think he opened war against İslam though. We Turks, even the very ignorant ones, can realise that USA destroyed all the balances here by attacking Irak. And now Kurds became a real big problem for us. And we are under the threat of loosing our lands. We can't enter Irak and follow the terrorists any more. We lost our power there. Our soldiers were humiliated by the American soldiers when few of them were caught in Northern Irak and put bags on their heads.

So now if you go out streets and ask people about USA you will hear that 9 out of 10 sees America as a threat to our country. So long time friend USA (and top in Clinton time) became a very dangerous hidden enemy for us. But this doesnt mean that we are approving terrorism. No way. We ourselves suffer from this disgusting inhumane terror very much. I condemn all terrorists including the ones who attacks to the civilians in İsrael. But if other islamic countries have problems like we do against USA than it can be a secret war opened against to USA. But again then why are they attacking so many different places. I cant understand...
