OK, i know its not true, you know it's not true, the only people who say such things are the terrorist sympathisers themselves. They claim the war on terror is a war against Islam, why Islamic terrorist themselves say they are fighting a war against western immorality and imperialism. They claim that the US and Israel are the worlds biggest terrorists yet seem to have very little understanding of what a terrorist or terrorism is.

Terrorism is the deliberate use of violence against non combatants for the purpose of gaining publicity for a group, cause, or individual. So why do Islamic terrorists find so many sympathisers in the west. Its simply and there are two simple rules the sympathisers follow:

1) USA = Evil, therefore anything against the USA is GOOD, while anything the USA supports also = Evil, this means they will support the most vial dictatorships simply because they also oppose the USA, its why the self proclaimed anti-racist left are now best friends with the far right, united by their hatred of the Jews (well Zionists if your a lefty), this USA=Evil means when it comes to WW2 they push forward the dropping of the nukes on Japan as the most terrible act of the war if anyone mentions the Holocaust to them, and they will quite happily defend peoples right to deny the Holocaust as a freedom of speech.

2) They like to see themselves are anarchists, and as such are against rules and laws, this goes for the rules and laws of war, defending the killing of 4 year old Einat Haran by Samir Kuntar as a legitimate form of resistance. It's these sympathisers who cry out 'Islamiphobia' if you mention that a would be terrorist is also a Muslim. In there eyes the world isn't about left and right wing any more, but capitalist and anti-capitalist (or you could read it as Zionist and anti-Zionists), and Muslims are just another ally in the fight.
