    It seems many are still confused about the "Islamist" menace waging war against Israel, America, and their allies. Here is an article to remind us of what has been known for decades, so we know whom we are actually up against:

    I don't think anyone is confused on the 'Islamic' Menace. I think what you should get acquainted about is the war that America, Israel, and their allies have been waging in the middle east for short of a century. Cause and effect, dude.

    Sure it is... if that's the case, why isn't their ire directed against Britain?

    You're being simplistic.

    ahh the old it is all out fault line of reasoning. So I guess it has nothing to do with a group of radical Muslims who wish to dictate not only to their own people, but all people, that they should live by a 1400 year old standard?

    Uh... How is it NOT also being directed at Britain? You do recall the subway bombings, and the fact that I said "US, Israel, and allies", which include Britain, the Americans' junior partner.

    All I'm saying is yeah, radical and brutal islamist groups are waging a war against the world, true enough. They are wrong to do so and I have no sympathy for them. But, well, there's a reason why they get some support. It just doesn't "happen". It's not that they "envy our great way of life and our money", it's just that violence begets violence begets violence begets violence.

    Violence does beget violence. By that same token, Israel would never attack it's neighbors if it wasn't attacked first.

    And I guess my point vis a vis Britain is that the U.S. is a greater focus of their antipathy.

    The difference is that when Israel loses 2 soldiers, they destroy a capital. Either way, my comment was moreso directed towards the US and it's allies (aka BRITAIN), of which Israel is an extension. These didn't need any initial violence to begin, it was just a the natural magnetism of the region's extravagant resources. Sucks to be the middle east, fucked forever due to a geographical accident.
