I'm not agreeing there.

I do not attack this forum as you see it.

This forum also seems to support the principles of 'Freedom of speech'

As it also posts mine as your posts without (to my little knowledge) altering anything written.

You do state that terrorists are the result of the actions done by USA and Europe's policy/actions, do you not?

When I write or react on anything said here, I do so as myself. Not another authority. I'm no politician nor scholar. So what I write is always influenced by my opinions as well as feelings and current knowledge.

If you don't mind too much I'll respond with first using a part of your response:

"I have already argued that the Taliban , al-qaeda , nazis, extremists , crusaders, and fanatics, they all belong to USA and Europe, they have nothing to do with Islam! They have been created by USA n Europe not by any Asian , Australia, Latin American or Muslim country!"

Let's start with one of them:

-Do you know who or why the crusaders where created?

It was in a response to(not only) the 'removal' of all Christians from 'the holy land'.

As always History is filled with action and reaction.

Nazis as history has known them during the era of Hitlers rule where also a reaction to other events.

Simply claiming it would be the german's fault would be closing your mind to what ever caused this.

As you so strongly want me to keep an open mind, so do I hope you can as well.

If Spain would never have been conquered by Muslim ruleship(back then the Turks) and halted(go read abvout El Sid) Would there have been such hatred towards Muslims?

Would there even have been a holy war if Muhammed never would have started he's belief?

If there where no muslims following there holy war, would there have been so many problems with terrorism?

Where is the source of this conflict that gave the world all this trouble?

Was it the west? Or rather the greed of a few rulers sending millions to their death?

But what then about terrorism?

The one inspired by faith, we could find the fault in the faith giving inspiration(Muslim?)

The one inspired by desperation, there you could blame the fault on the nation rulers.

But don't blame it on others.
