Jihadi propaganda my foot

Reader comment on item: John Walker Lindh - The Next Malcolm X?
in response to reader comment: Does Lindh's imprisonment include the privilege of distributing Jihadi propaganda on the web?

... Nowhere in Lindh's letter does he incite acts of terrorism. He was merely pointing out that the violence would continue until Israel starts treating the Palestinian people -most of whom aren't violent or cruel- like human beings with a right to life, liberty and property.

Pointing out the obvious root causes to the turmoil is philosophical observation, not jihadist propaganda.
