As far as the crusades, last I checked those were launched by the Christians against the Muslims, not the Muslims on the Christians. And that was more of a military campaign, not civilian attacks.
there is a turkish guy in my theatre class that said that according to them and their culture, killing an american (they hate us) is a straight ticket to heaven..... and also... If they do support these religions, then explain the crusades? whats that all about?
(and many other religions, here at FIU) and no where in the Koran does it not support Judaism and Christianity. The believe in all the same prfits as you do , ie moses, christ, etc...
so get your facts straight before you disrespect someones religion. Especially when that religion is similar to yours (assuming your 1 of the 3.main religions) As far as suicide bombers go , you cant generalize a whole people off of the horibble acts of a few men/women. Deal with them separately, their leaders will pay!!
1. Remember the Gulf War?
2. Remember Lebanan?
3. Have you read any part of the Koran? there is a little tiny part that says DEATH TO THE INFIDELS. That includes Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Baptists, etc.
4. The US has been raping the middle east of resources, dictating policies and putting restrictions on such things as trade and military.
Do you know what the sentiment towards Americans is in many countries around the world and especial in those found in the middle east; they do not like us.
I can keep going if you would like more information.
