Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:
in response to reader comment: Your own fault

Submitted by Octavio (Italy), Jan 5, 2007 at 19:29

I do agree that western imperialism is wrong: I don't want the world to become a caricature of Mc Donald's. I don't want to tell Arabs and Muslims what to do in their countries.

At the same time, if you look at the back-grounds of the London-bombers, they were all non-Europeans. If you look at the back-ground of those who started trouble for the Danish Cartoons, they were all non-Europeans. And if you look at the back-ground of the people who started trouble in Holland, most of them were non-Europeans.

Therefore, you cannot say that mine is an assumption: it is FACT.

You didn't have to worry about Muslim terrorism, when there were no-Muslims living here. You didn't have to worry about offending Islam, when there were no Muslims living here. Can you deny this FACT?
