I am very glad to hear such correct words from an American citizen.İt is exremely wrong to see islam as a reason for everything bad happens on earth.This is also very dangerous.You must think twice. Billions opening war against billions. No matter how strong one side is, these huge amounts against each other will definitly bring disasters to the world. And it is against to the nature of globilization. So it is a backward thinking.

I guess İsraels and Phalestenians long time fights brought the world to this terroriszm atmosphere. I have great sympathy for the poor phalestinians living under the terrible conditions created by İsrael. But on the other hand why so called Arabic hero Arafat did not accept the super peace conditions offered to him in the past? I think today Arabs can never come even close to such conditions with Sharon and Bush. They lost when Arafat refused the peace... I am not sorry for him since I see him the reason of todays terror . I also think israel citizens are the victims of this unrest and terror. Yes Phalestenians are helpless. But now terror is taken to the whole world.

Most of the Arabs are very rich people .They dont have to work.They pay no taxes.Their biggest problem is to find a way to invest their huge amount of dollars to some dependeble country. Their dictators after ıraks invasion are almost all scared by Bush and they obey to USA. last attacks in jordan was done against to their Kings cooparation with USA.but this will not change anything.Bombings will randomly go on until Phalestenian and Irak problems are solved.Terrorists using these conflicts and by İnterprating kuran knowingly wrong find perverts who can blow themselves up.

Mr Bush may support İsrael from his heart. But as a USA leader he had to hide it and not play the game one sided. He should have understood the sources of terrorism better. instead of showing very dangerously İslam a target he should have spent more objective efforts solving this endless problem of İsrael and Phalestenians. But what did Mr Bush do? He invaded Irak.Causing more problems and more terrorizm. Now it is easier for al qaida to find more terrorists. I am not criticizing USA s past. All I am saying is Mr Bush is not doing good for the world. Saying that Bush carried terrorism to Irak instead of USA is also not true. We will see new attacks in the USA .

Just like you say Monisha I really hope one day we all can be world citizens and regardless of our beliefs and race we can be one and act against terror together and help each other more.Today we can start individually helping to the earthquake victims of Pakistan who sleeps outside under the freezing winter conditions.They are no less humans than us.
