in response to reader comment: Susan, Hitler WAS a terrorist!

"The Muslims do not hold exclusive monopoly on terrorism; not in the past, and not even at the present. You cannot argue that monsters like Hitler and Stalin were not terrorists, even if not of the same level. (Stalin probably must forgive me that I dare mention his notorious name in the same breath with that of Satan's beloved Hitler's.)"

like george orwell said in his novel "all animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others".

It is true that terrorists came under many forms and shapes but it's also true to notice that while Hitler is considered the worst of all evils (and his name is used to describe the worst hell possible) stalin has never received the same "treatment".

We are watching a similar debate with Pinochet and Castro. The know-it-all western media is declaring that a dictator died but some other people with more brain are saying that Pinochet while a dictator never murdered people who wanted to emigrate from Chile and didn't leave Chile in a terrible financial situation like Cuba is now.

Our problem is still PC. Castro and Stalin, mao, pol pot and the muslim dictators are still heroes of the left, Hitler, Milosevich (strangely), were not.

That's why the double standards. That's why the muslim terrorists are called "resistant" and nobody dares to tell that muslims in kashmir, chechenia, south thailand, etc are basically STEALING land like they accuse the israelis of doing.

The only head of state that I consider terrorist in the true sense of the word is arafat. I don't care to share who is nastier between stalin, hitler or pol pot. The problem is that Hitler has been condemned ever since, the left's darlings are still protected. The evils of Hitler have been widely discussed, the evils of those others are preciously kept hidden. Same goes for the crimes of islam.

I see a pattern here. Islam is just considered a lefty/communist force, that's why we currently have a problem.

"There were very dangerous terrorists also in the past (not necessarily Muslims) but they all have been already eliminated, they are gone, and are irrelevant."

then i was right in my previous post. The political terror of the basques, of the ira, of the leftist anarchists is nothing compared to muslims, the above ones are not moved by a religion!
