Dear fellow infidel,

Its high time you expanded your mode of thinking and though about this conflict through an informed and intelligent point of view. You said Lisa should read the Quran; well... have you? If you have, which version. There are many translations out there that exist only for the purpose of discrediting the Quran, written by right wing Christian and Athest extremists. And if you have read the Quran, also read the old testiment and the Jewish Torah. Then decide which text is the most open to warfare and violence, and self sacrifice.

By far it is the Torah. Remember during the Roman times it was the Jews that were treated like the Muslims are treated today, as a radical religious fringe. Many Jewish battles and acts of violence are well documented, remember the battle of Massada, talk about suicidal tedencies. But we all know that the jewish fight was one of resistance against a foreign occuping brutalizing military force. That is exactly what the Muslims are fighting today, a European military occupying force called zionism in the heart of their homelands. Israel is the worlds last European colony. And you can not expect the locals to not resist.

Right now Islam is very much hated and despised by the peoples of the west. Why is that. Of course it is because Islam hates democracy and promotes violence and terrorism. But why do people who can have safe comfortable lives in front of their television sets decide to take on the tough task of fighting a war against an adversary of overwhelming might and almost certain death or long term torture and imprisonment. There must be something to it. Maybe Lisa is right.

Do your research and here are a few key terms for you to Google. Savak, Mossadeq, moros, Nagorno Karabak, Chechnyan genocide, Kashmir U.N. resolution, Algeria's civil war, Shatilla Massacre. And I have a ton more. If you are truely not a sheep then don't just form your opinion based on the popular media and do your own reseach. Trust me, the state want nothing more than prepetual war against a vague enemy. This is how empires are made. You are just another lamb ready to swallow the rhetoric.

Looking forward to response, but please do your research before responding
