Reader comment on item: In Mideast, Bet on a Strong Horse
in response to reader comment: The terror groups

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Feb 28, 2010 at 01:05

Hi Joe Six-Pack, You need to be more specific to explain your position on that "The terror groups are where Muslims are waging offensive warfare."

I can give you some examples :

1. Hezbollah was created as a response to the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982. Had there been no "Operation Peace Galilee" by Israel , there would be no Hezbollah today. Hezbollah has never attacked any Western European state or the USA ever.
2. Hamas was created in the late 1980-s as a result for the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories , no one had heard about Hamas before it.
3. Al-Qaida was created in the early 1990-s by the Islamists who were supported by the US , previously during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan.

I ask you again to be more specific about your examples.
