    This is a rather interesting development and it will be interesting to see where it goes. I guess this is good news?

    Seems like there is an opportunity to reduce terrorism if groups like Al Qaida, Islamic Jihad, Hamas and Hezbollah, and others renounce violence.

  3. why would terrorists renounce violence?
    and yes, I agree, they are recognized as terrorist groups in the modest side of the ME. And don't get me wrong, we also recognize Israel and the US in Iraq as terrorists as well.
    There's no innocent side here.
    We should not feed the beast with threads that encourage biasness and one-side judgments.

    Because it may be in their political interests to do so.

    Why did the IRA disarm? Why did Qaddafi renounce violence? Why did Musharraf strike at jihadi groups?
