I hope you're right,Arne
I do too. But, the terrorist thugs of Hamas, Fedayeen Saddam, Taliban and Al Qaida interact within poor urban Islamic neighborhoods the way the Vice Lords and Sultan Gangbangers interacted with the residents of the Cabrini Green HUD projects in south Chicago back in the late 80s. They reigned over a feudal society through menace and imminent violence, but none of the residents were stupid enough to narc them out to a Cop. The guys in the black doo rags with the shotguns and Rugers storming into your living room at will trumped the guys in blue with guns who couldn't come into your living room without knocking and politely asking permission.
The residents didn't want these goons around, they didn't support their activities, but they lived with them and just shook their head affirmatively and heartily agreed with anything they wanted. But, if the numbers added up, and the odds were sufficient, they'd delight in the arrest, killing or dispersal of the gangbangas. They knew who was victimizing them, but they wouldn't say so unless there was no chance of retribution.
