Reader comment on item: Further Converts to Terrorism

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Mar 11, 2010 at 16:22

Often when there has been an islamic bombing, we are told that this must be the work of a few, poverty stricken lost souls. That there must be some sad background of this poor misguided person who placed a bomb and killed people in the name of allah.

That it is not the fault of islam or even the individual terrorist but rather the fact that they lived in Gaza or the West Bank and this sad life caused them to wish to kill for islam.

The islamist then say this poor life was caused by the Jews or the West. Certainly not the imans and the islamic political leaders who force feed all the muslim children hate from day one.

The truth is , that islamic terrorists come from all different backgrounds, countries, and experiences. Some muslim terrorists were poor, some average and some were better off than most. The September 11 killers were from Saudi Arabia and the Christmas underwear bomber, his family is quite well off.

So the excuse of poverty or oppression causing islamic terror is a lie. The only thing that causes islamic terror is the islamists teaching hate and the good muslims not stopping them or even speaking out.
