Ya akhi, my brother,

I agree with much of what you say, but you MUST NOT give any reason for people to think you are apologising for terrorist atrocity, looking at reasons why something happened DOES NOT justify the actions of these blasphemous killers who have acted on the whisperings of Satan. Muslims do not learn how to behave from criminals, but from prophets.

Yes, violence begets more violence, I believe military action will never defeat these criminals. Police action is far more appropriate, but they are criminals and must be treated as such. Just becasue oppression and injustice exist in this world does not mean that we can leave the right way shown to us by Allah. Remember, the greatest Jihad is to speak the truth to a tyrant, this can only be done from a position of weakness, otherwise it is not speaking to the tyrant in a manner worthy of such recognition. Fighting the tyrant in ways that oppose Allahs law must be condemned. Especially when it hurts the innocent.

Ultimately, whatever reasons there are to struggle for liberation of humanbeings, the terrorists do not care about the oppressed, they are merely tools in the arsenal of terrorist propaganda, lending a veneer (very thin) that what the blasphemous killers do is just. State power is generally corrupt, it is up to us to make it accountable, so that when it acts in our name, it does what is our interest, this is the heart and soul of democracy, so if you live in a democratic state, use that power. We need to stop beating the Palestine drum what has it brought but misery and bloodshed for all involved, and work to find real solutions, solutions are inclusive, and about US, not us and them.
