this question is to all the islamic defenders who says that "only few muslims are bad so you can not blame entire islamic society" , then can you answer this , - there are maximum number of terrorists in the whole world are ISLAMIC terrorists , proof of these are. * USA is suffering by ISLAMIC terrors , * INDIA is suffering by ISLAMIC terrors , * RUSSIA is suffering by ISLAMIC terrors , * ISRAEAL is suffering by ISLAMIC terrors , * AFRICAN countries like ALGERIA is having number of ISLAMIC terrorist centers , * SOUTH PACIFIC ASIAN countries also have ISLAMIC movment troubles. and list goes on , now there are number of other relegion in this world , like * Christians , Jeus , Hindus , Baudhisam and list goes on and on. CAN YOU NAME ANY PART OF THE WORLD WHICH IS HAVING TROUBLE BY - Christians or Jeus or Hindus or Baudhists CAN YOU NAME ANY TERRORIST ORGANIZATION WHICH KILLS PEOPLE AS BRUTELY AS ISLAMIC ORGANIZATIONS AND WHICH BELONGS TO, - Christians or Jeus or Hindus or Baudhists.
I AM SURE you have to accept that ISLAMIC ORGANIZATIONS are the ROOT of the terror which is being spreaded around the world , why other relegions are not like this who , * train little kids (who should be studying is schools) for wars and how to fire guns and kill people , from their childhood they are told that they have to fight to save ISLAM.(IF anyone can get access to BIN LADEN video cd , in that you can see little children being trained to fire guns on targets , on those targets they write USA and INDIA) * ask for money from people to prepare your evil forces of terrorists to do things like WTC tragedy , * In the parts like kashmir(India) ISLAMIC terrorists everyday kill average 30 people , they ask men and women and little children that 'are you hindu or muslim' and then if they are not ISLAMIC they kill them i am again asking that why other relegion are not like this and only ISLAM ??? can anybody tell???

im not sure of the exact dates, but during the middle ages the catholic church killed millions of other christians and those they called pagans. they burned so many "witches" that some areas had no women left. In particular, they wiped out the cathars altogether. the cathars were also christians but unlike the catholics they believed that women were equal to men and could hold the priesthood. so the catholics killed them all.

Don't forget that the Northern ireland Conflict is still raging, just a few weeks ago an area just outside of the City of London was Bombed, people in the UK and Ireland live in fear or terrorism every single day, but of course the US are so friendly with the Irish that they choose to ignore it. I'll bet Bush's "war on terrorism" doesn't even touch the IRA or any of the other paramilitary groups involved. And we are not alone, terrorism rages all over the world. This attack is just so shocking because it's the first time anyone has dared to attack America on it's own soil, and it has been utterly devastating. I watched it all unfold live on TV (I was watching right after the first plane crashed, when everyone thought it was some horrible accident.) Terrorism, war, neither of these is ever really about Religion. The true Islamic followers (i.e. the very large majority of them) follow the doctrines which teach peace, tolerence and understanding. The guys who perpetrate this kind of attack, are not faithful to the religion they claim to represent. They are fanatics. They are a small minority and even though they have made themselves very known, they're actions should not lead to repercussion on other Muslims. Just as the actions of the IRA shouldn't lead to hatred of Irish Catholics. I abhore the IRA and everything they stand for, however I my best friend is the daughter of an Irish Catholic, should I hate her too because I few Irish Catholic choose violence over tolerence?
Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.
very good point Angela. a colleague of mine from Manchester England said one point coming out of London was that brits hope this brings the US some perspective on what they've been fighting in N. Ireland for decades. He said that brits hope that this will maybe sway the US to fight against the IRA. And I guess according to President Bush, the US should be fighting them soon.
