    In many Arab countries, Hammas and Hezbollah are not considered terrorist groups. They are regarded as legitimate power brokers who command the allegiance of many prominent groups of people.
    Sort of like the right-wing Christian Coalition here. :cow:

    If they stop the violence, I don't doubt many wouldn't embrace their political asperations. On the other hand, governments such as Egypt think groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and other related groups as "once a terrorist, always a terrorist".

    Radical Islamic terrorists are a religious group bent on the destruction of people who think differently.

    The right-wing Christian Coalition is a religious group bent on the destruction of people who think differently.

    So where is the difference? It's all about hate.

    They attacked us with planes and killed 3,000 people.
    We counter-attacked with conventional weapons (and are still doing so) and have killed several hundred thousand.

    The answer? Quit fighting with them. If you quit fighting with the radical Islamic faction, they will go back to fighting amongst themselves. That is why the Middle East has been in transition for centuries. We have only been quarreling with them for a couple of decades.
