    I don't think that is all, there is more. On the other hand, the world does not turn a blind eye to their tactics, too many are looking for 'root causes' while ignoring the reality behind them. It's not ignoring as much as denial.

    The use of civilians, is a problem of those fighting them. If they ceased to 'have an effect', they would cease being used. It brings the argument back to can we do what it takes to win?

    Are you referring to their perception of the state of israel as an unjustly created entity?
    And furthermore, is israel worth it?

    Hey, for every 'Israel' substitute US, it becomes more clear. Same problems we are running into in Iraq.

    Remember how the media stopped showing visuals of WTC/911, that was to keep us from 'striking back.' It may be time for the media to use its powers in a better way than they've been doing.

    The enemy is much better at propaganda than the US.

    As I said, which is why you didn't quote:
    I certainly would be for 'more intensive background checks,' for any type of visas. I do not applaud the 'exchange of students' currently being pushed.
