Part of the quote from Al Majid above states "....I will do it, with the help of God." I'm sorry - I thought God and Allah were interchangeable terms. If not - then you'll have to explain exactly who or what allah is.

My Answer >>> This is a normal kind of quote for Any Arab Muslim. It does not signify that the Al-Mazid was invoking Allah's help for killing Kurds , fellow Muslims.And anyway Allah calls for harsh punishments against people like Al-Mazid who resorted to killing innocents like the Kurds. Al-Mazid was a criminal who just happened to born in Arab culture.So I wonder what does you want to signify here ?

On the issue of Hitler I want to state that Hitler never rejected Christianity or Jesus's teachings. And do not forget that Hitler was born into a Christian culture which considered Jews as "evil Christ killers".So Hitler's native Christian culture was no less responsible for his actions.

On the issue of Mohammad Mossadeq I request you to kindly go through the history of Anglo-Iranian Oil. That particualr company was cheating the Iranians by taking all it's profits.This was a denial of legtimate Iranian rights.Mossadeq wanted to stop it so he was overthrown by the British and the US. How can you justify the overthrowal of a nationalist like Mossadeq with a puppet like the Shah ?

You cannot paint organizations such as Al-Shabab,Al-Qaeda or Hezbollah together. They were created because of different reasons and they are ceratinly not similar type of beings. Kindly provide a defintion of the term "Islamist" because I do not understand what you mean by it.

As per as Yitjhak Shamir and Menachem Begin were concerned they were terrorists. They were convicted of being terrorists by the British in the Palestine in the early 1940-s since they were invovled in "Irgun" the Zionist terrorist outfit.

As per as defintiion of terrorism is concerned it is easy to define people like Maj. Nidal Hassan as terrorists. But are you ready to define people like Bush and Sharon as terrorists since they have killed more innocent people than Al-Qaeda ? I am waiting for your answer.

Take care.
