Terror is not only Islamic!

For a western world which is increasingly trying to imply that Islam has a monopoly on violent terrorism, I have only these words to say,
  1. ETA
  2. LTTE
  3. PWG
  4. IRA
  5. IRGUN
  6. ANC
I may be biased toward Asia, and have certainly left out such prominent examples as the Red Brigade, et al.

So the next time a 'knowledgeable' friend of yours tries to imply that Islam holds a monopoly on terror, you know what to say.

P.S. "Violent Atheism", I do believe, mostly, that "Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent." However, it may be the only way to deal with irrational people effectively. And I'm not violent. Yet. :-)

Welcome back to the world of blogging. It was a surprise to see the blogs after a hiatus. Keep up your blogging ways!!!

And don't forget to add the CIA and the bush govt. to that list. Terrorism as defined by the west will always be islamic sadly. I find it such a contradiction, when the US cribs about the human rights issues with islamic nations, when 30 years ago blacks were lynched and not allowed to go to the same schools as the whites. all that happens under a veil now.

I am all with you on the violent atheism. If you remember the line from unaal mudiyum thambi, Kamal said as much: "irukira kovil elam, padikira palligal seivom"

The CIA has supported many of these groups! The IRA has substantial US support and funding for instance. Leave alone the funding of the 'Jihad' against the USSR in various places around the world.

Yep, the US has little moral superiority but their isolation breeds contempt for, and fear of, the rest of the world.

On: "Irukkira Kovilgallelam, Padikkira Palligal Seivom"
Wah! I agree completely! Education is the only way the masses can compete with politicians for resources...
