BS"D

"--"He said he acted to 'avenge the deaths of Muslims around the world.' "--"

So, naturally he has to blame America and try to kill Americans, even though Muslims have taken many many more Muslim lives than America has. Of course, a Muslim killing a Muslim just to satisfy his lust to kill is probably a "holy" act, whereas an American killing a Muslim in self defense is indefensable in their morally upside-down universe. And the toadies posting here in support of him are no better than he.

The Iran-Iraq war, perpetrated by a Muslim against Muslims claimed between 500,000 and 1,000,000 lives.
see item #16 at http://users.erols.com/mwhite28/warstat2.htm

And when the Muslim nation of Iraq went to war with Kuwait?
"The Iraqis killed so many young men that bodies were transferred to a skating rink for short-term preservation. The fate of those detainees who had been too badly mutilated by torture was continued detention, a bar on leaving Kuwait, or execution."

And that's just a tiny sampling of their murderous behavior.

But when America went to war with Iraq? The lives of many Muslims who were condemned by a Muslim to die were saved.
"How many Iraqis were saved by the use of force against Saddam can be counted in several ways. At a bare minimum, several thousand Iraqis were saved from being killed in individual political murders. This includes political prisoners (including children) who poured from Saddam's dungeons at liberation, Shia activists, other dissenters, and military men suspected of disloyalty.

Toppling Saddam also saved several thousand more at dire risk from his gradually rising violence against the Shia. If the Shia or Kurds were targeted with wholesale murder, as seemed increasingly likely, the regime could easily have resumed killing at its historic rate of 15,000 to 20,000 deaths a year. Specifically, the West's already existing threat to use force inside Iraq to protect Kurdistan--a threat whose credibility might well have collapsed if the Coalition had crumbled last year--saved tens of thousands more from certain death every year it was in place."

We save their lives, and they try to kill us for it. That is really pushing the envelope of perversion.
