Actually the Egyptian government played a central role in getting islamic nations pissed off.
After the recent elections, that gave a lot of parliamentary seats the the Muslim Brotherhood, the mostly secular government has been busy trying to prove that they are really defenders of the faith. Their part in the cartoon mess is a good example.


Affirmative, the Egyptian government has been struggling with islamic extremists for decades, with some pretty brutal methods that have included (and probably still do include) torture. It hasn't worked. Zawahiri was schooled on Sayyid Qutb's philosophies in Egyptian prisons, where they both spent time. Al Qaeda has a large Egyptian contingent, although they're far more targetted at the US and Israel, and supposedly this is a major point of disagreement between Bin Laden and people like Zawahiri, who consider Islamic or majority Muslim countries that align themselves with the West (like Egypt) more important targets at this time.

I wonder if these bombings signal some sort of rift forming between Al Qaeda and other groups, or if this is a change in strategy for them. Interesting, if terrible, stuff.

/my sympathies to the families of those soldiers, and all the other victims of this nonsense

To be fair, almost all the people killed in those riots were shot by police for protesting.

Kinda starts making you think, don't it?

I guess that's part of the reason for so many pissed of moslems... When they finally get to open the wrapping on wedding-night, and find dissapointment.

binnster, in case I'm not awake when my next greenlighted link gets to the front page, I'm the guy who submitted the Spanish story about giving Apes the same rights as humans, and if I'm asleep by then, make sure that everyone knows it was me who posted it.

And make sure you've seen "Planet of the Apes". There's books on how to survive robot uprisings and zombiepocalypses, but no books on how to survive simian revolts.

its a PSY-OP people. its supposed to make us all de-sensitized to 'terrorist activities' so that we'll support any bill/law/action of our leaders that will 'kill the terrorist threat', you know .. like .. implanting our children with RFID, sending them off to war, spending a lot of money on cool hardware designed to blow shiat up, stuff like that ..

Damn. Do you take the same view of firemen and police officers?

You don't have to be "patriotic" to be angry that people are dying.

Unright

Actually, we don't shoot cops over here, has something to do with laws prohibiting people from owning weapons other than shotguns and rifles meant for hunting.
Rather nifty little system, when I come to think of it. Fewer weapons means less gun-related murders.

"A Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Law Enforcement pamphlet gives the public characteristics to identify terrorists that include buying baby formula, beer, wearing Levi jeans, carrying identifying documents like a drivers license and traveling with women or children."

So watch out! You would be amazed of all the terorrists out there!

Can we drop the whole terrorists side of the words "muslim terrorist" and just go ahead and realize that all muslims are like this? They all secretly dont care about the rights of non-muslims and want you to convert to their craptastic religion. They all wanna form a taliban style government in whatever country they inhabit.

I love how extremist muslims, especially the palestinians, will always bite the hand that feeds them.

Whenever there's an international crisis, the first things these guy do is to take all the westerners in Gaza and the West Bank as hostages, most of them are westerners with sympathy for their cause and trying to help them. They even kill some of them.

These people are there to help them, and they'd rather use them as hostages or kill them

Same thing with these peacekeepers. They are neutral, they are keeping the peace in a low-intensity war torn region and they just explode.

They attack tourists..

that's just incredible.

What about the guys who work in the convenience store across the street from me? They sell beer and pork rinds, and at least one of them smokes pot. It's like a smorgasborg of the Islamic world in that gas station/convenience store. They've got a Pakistani, an Indian, a Morroccan, 2 Israeli Arabs, and a Somali.

/one of the Israeli Arab guys is the one who smokes cheeba
//he gives us discounts because he's really cool
///we call him Dave because we can't pronounce his real name

Don't forget the mass rapes of non-muslim women. It's normal! We should accept other peoples cultures, no matter how alien they may be, we can ALL be multicultural.

This is the part that convinced me that the author is full of crap:
"Yet many Western leftists habitually excuse these crimes against women in order to maintain political solidarity with their allies in the Islamic world."

Tatsuma - I love how extremist muslims, especially the palestinians, will always bite the hand that feeds them.

Tatsuma hit the nail right on the head. And it seems to get worse for them since they voted in a pro-terrorist government, the US, Israel, EU are cutting off funds to them. And since the area the Palestinian Authority manages doesn't have oil (unlike Iran), there is no Russia or China to bail them out.

A Hamas-run PA is simply... a bad idea.

Do these stories even warrant a "news Flash" tag anymore? I mean, it happens so often. Bombings these days are about as unexpected as oil price hikes.

I think bombings that follow bombings can sometimes be explained by the use of suiciders for the delivery mechanism. There's two or three bombers that all set their bombs off, but maybe one of them got sidetracked on the way to the bombing, or had a flat tire or something... and saw his buddies blow themselves up, and then with the heightened security of the initial target, now empty of people, decides to take out a crappier target... so as not to waste his suicidal tendencies... not to mention his bomb.

Pussy Canadian poster. Al Queda doesn't care what what Western Country you come from. They don't care if you support Bush's policies or not. They still hate you and if they can, will kill you. The quicker you wise up to that, the better. You can proclaim "Peace in your day" all you want, but that won't make it so.
