    The difference is that groups like al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, etc.etc. use Islam as the basis for their terror - just like anti-abortion terrorists use the anti-abortion arguments as the basis for their terror, as do eco-terrorists, etc. etc. All, in my opinion, are equally wrong.

    One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. Easy for the ruling class to denounce violence, because they're already sitting pretty. Those who are out of power have only one recourse, and that is force. Those with power do not give it up easily. You can either be a slave, or you can fight.
