You know Hurkyl, there are a lot of Moslems who say EXACTLY the same thing when talking about the USA.Hurkyl said:Acting in the name of a noble cause does not make the action noble.
When people speak the attitudes that allow the current form terrorism to exist and thrive, they mean precisely this: people who are willing to tolerate (even praise!) their actions, simply because they are done in the name of a good cause.
In other words, you are part of the problem.
And like most, I don't think you intend to be: you do seem to genuinely prefer that there would not be any terrorism. So, the thing I'm hoping that you will see is that your attitude towards the terrorists softens their image, which makes it easier for people to be recruited into terrorism.
Except for the fact that people are still signing up for their cause.
