Why are we targeted? Very simple--I don't know why anyone asks this question... It's because we've aligned ourselves with Israel. If we were to turn our back on Israel, the terrorism against the US would likely stop. Of course, the world would not be a better place, though.
Also because its a east target
"If we were to turn our back on Israel, the terrorism against the US would likely stop. "
You are very wrong on that. We are still infidels. They want to eradicate all infidels.
Rival 'Drug-lord' Gangs of International 'plate'...?
I doubt that very much.
I think terrorism would continue, because most of us are not Muslims, and they want Islam to dominate the world.
Disagree. If that was the case, than there wouldn't be Christians in Nigeria and Sudan being terrorized by this cult of Islam.
I don't know if you are being anti-semitic with a purpose or if it is a genuinely held sentiment .
The comment shows you don't understand the nature of the conflict. Islamic fundamentalism is on the move everywhere.
It is true that Isreal has been the favorite target but it isn't the only one.
Islam has been at war with the West for a generation. There has been war between conflict between Packistan and India,
There has been slaughter of christians in the Philipines and in Maylasia. There was recently an attack against the police by 200 armed insurgents in Tailand.
Militant islam would murder every Jew, Christian, Hindu, Zorastrian, Secular Humanist, Shinto, Atheist, Sunni , Pagan, Celt on earth if they failed to convert.
The only thing this has to do with the Jews, is they hate the Jew's slightly more because Israel has humiliated Arab/Moslem armies in 1948, 1956, 1968 and 1973.
Well then, why are Christians targeted in Pakistan, Egypt, the Phillipines, the Sudan? Why have Hindus been targeted in India for hundreds of years? Why did the Ottoman Turks menace Vienna in the 17th century? Aha, I have it! The Islamists already knew hundreds of years ago that Israel would be created and they were making a preemptive strike!
Brilliant, if you are not a troll and have an open mind, think about this. Know Thy Enemy! What has the enemy said for 30 years? Israel is the little Satan, the USA is the Great Satan. If we throw Israel to the wolves, we'll only end up with more wolves. BTW, Osama Bin Laden before 9/11 had hardly said two words about Israel.
You're right. It would be much better to line up with the House of Saud. Large black garbage bags would be immediately required for all our women, plus they would have to sit in the back seats of cars driven only by male relatives. But the good news is that our men only have to practice Islam when they're in the Kingdom, and outside they can gamble, booze and whore just like the thousands of Saudi males.
It might be a little difficult at first because al-Queda (who really knows how to spell that?) was formed in Saudi Arabia and their people did bring down the two World Trade Center Towers, but when all else fails we can always blame everything on the Israelis. And just think how the U.N. will love it because condemning Israel is their favorite pastime.
It's so much easier than condemning any other country, no matter what atrocities they've done. Zimbabwe, Cuba, North Korea, etc. are irreproachable, but you can always get votes against Israel as the world knows. Let's go with the Saudis.
