Al Qeada was formed and financed by the CIA. Osama was the patsy in order to give Bush the backing to go to multiple wars in the middle east.


The main reason we are hated and attacked is because of our military stationed in their holy lands. Saudi Arabia was the first violation to their beliefs. Our air bases that are constructed in their lands has caused great unrest.


As with most people in the world they do not hate a country or people because of their way of life. A country’s action is what insights hatred.


Another reason is our blind support for Israel we support them even when they commit acts of terrorism on the Palestine’s people. We do nothing but continue to subsidize them.


This country needs to grow up and quit believeing in the FAUX news we get before we all turn into nazi pricks like Bill o Reilly.

 

 

One Woman’s Considered Opinion!

What we do, and did, is much the same as what they do.


The Muslims from the various Mideast countries have been emigrating to other countries and attempting to spread their influence and power throughout history. They have used conquest, population, and forced conversion, as well as money and terrorism to do this.


If there is any doubt as to the veracity of this statement, look at modern southern Spain. Look at the churches in Moscow and St. Petersburg.


People are people, and it doesn’t matter what nationality or religion they are, they will all try to control the world if they can.


Right now, the people in the Mideast have power, oil, and they are using it to extend their influence and power. We, are doing the same thing, by trying to control that oil, and them, and we will continue to do so as long as it is in our interest to do so, or until they clearly win.


Al Qaeda, is just an organized group, trying to get more power. The thing that is disturbing to us, is that they are more than willing to destroy themselves to this end. They would like to destroy us, and they will use whatever tool becomes available to them, whether it is religion or oil, money, or the lives of their members.


It’s all about power and control, and it always has been.

I answered those questions right after 9/11 in an editorial I wrote for my college’s newspaper.

The truth is Al-Qaeda didn’t attack the us because of what we are, rather because of what they THINK we are. & also not because of what we do, rather because of what they BELIEVE we do!

Most of the Al-Qaeda members think of the US as this evil crusading kingdom pretty much like Europe in the middle ages! They don’t seem do realize that America is a free country who respects the freedom of religion. & that many Muslims live safely in the US & enjoy life better than many modern Muslim countries.

Most of Al-Qaeda members believe in the conspiracy theory & suffer deep double thinking problem. They used to complain that America is so picky with Iraq & is so willing to attack it for any reason or even no reason. On the other hand, America allows the Serbs to murder Muslims in Bosnia or Kosovo. It’s a new crusade (they say). Then when America attacked the Serbs & Milosevic, he became a hero in their propaganda. They began to say stuff like “Maybe Milosevic is a butcherer, but he’s a real brave man who stood against the American arrogance!”

The very root of the Al-Qaeda’s madness against America is the propaganda of Saddam Hussein. Bin Laden didn’t accept the opinion of the Saudi clergy, who saw no problem in getting assistance from the US to defend Saudi Arabia. He accepted Saddam’s propaganda instead & saw such a relation with the US is the worst thing a Muslim would ever do!


meg answered 7 years ago

They attacked us because they are unhappy with the state of the Arab world, and have convinced themselves it is our fault. Our policies may not have been beneficial to most of the people in the middle east, but they are not the primary cause of their misery either. It is human nature to blame others for your own failings, and AL Qaeda has carried this to an extreme, and are living in a fantasy world where the US and the West is the root of all evil.

I don’t know if “provoked” is the right word … they are, after all, a bunch of wacked-out islamaniacs. But yes, the so-called motivation, according to Osama himself, was the presence of US military bases in Saudi Arabia.

I think Osama lies, even to his own followers, about his motives (see link), but he’s pretty good at using the Koran to manipulate them.

See, Readers, there are two sides to every Issue. Unfortunately in this instance, one side is intelligent and well-thought out, while the other side consists of Archie Bunker’s Dingbats!

 

I dare say – because of MSM Right-Wing Propaganda – Dingbats on our shores outnumber the Thoughtful by a significant number.

 

That’s just one of the Pitfalls of Capitalism, seasoned with the illusion of democracy! Clever Capitalists are always in the background manipulating Americans and pulling our strings!

 

 

I find the following Blogger’s “take” on the matter interesting if not very informative. He seems to believe that if you don’t make specific demands, he is unable to fathom the reasons for Terrorists’ Terrorism.

 

He certainly says little to answer the operative question here. But something is better than nothing. And I can point out where he succeeds and where he fails. I should be thankful for small favors.

http://www.danielpipes.org/2798/what-do-the-terrorists-want-a-caliphate

What do Islamist terrorists want? The answer should be obvious, but it is not.

 

A generation ago, terrorists did make clear their wishes. Upon hijacking three airliners in September 1970, for example, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine demanded, with success, the release of Arab terrorists imprisoned in Britain, Switzerland, and West Germany. Upon attacking the B’nai B’rith headquarters and two other Washington, D.C. buildings in 1977, a Hanafi Muslim group demanded the canceling of a feature movie, Mohammad, Messenger of God,” $750 (as reimbursement for a fine), the turning over of the five men who had massacred the Hanafi leader’s family, plus the killer of Malcolm X.

 

Such “non-negotiable demands” led to wrenching hostage dramas and attendant policy dilemmas. “We will never negotiate with terrorists,” the policymakers declared “Give them Hawaii but get my husband back,” pleaded the hostages’ wives.

So far, he fails miserably. The reason for his Failure is he focuses on the specific while completely ignoring the general. Some Analysts do the exact opposite with comparable results. In order to make a Case, you must include both the General and the Specific. But he’s not finished, so let’s give him the benefit of a doubt!

 

Those days are so remote and their terminology so forgotten that even President Bush now speaks of “non-negotiable demands” (in his case, concerning human dignity), forgetting the deadly origins of this phrase.

 

Most anti-Western terrorist attacks these days are perpetrated without demands being enunciated. Bombs go off, planes get hijacked and crashed into buildings, hotels collapse. The dead are counted. Detectives trace back the perpetrators’ identities. Shadowy websites make post-hoc unauthenticated claims.

More Specificity!

 

But the reasons for the violence go unexplained.At last that author gives us reason to hope for an answer here!

 

Analysts, including myself, are left speculating about motives. These can relate to terrorists’ personal grievances based in poverty, prejudice, or cultural alienation. Alternately, an intention to change international policy can be seen as a motive: pulling “a Madrid” and getting governments to withdraw their troops from Iraq; convincing Americans to leave Saudi Arabia; ending American support for Israel; pressuring New Delhi to cede control of all Kashmir.

 

Any of these motives could have contributed to the violence; as London’s Daily Telegraph puts it, problems in Iraq and Afghanistan each added “a new pebble to the mountain of grievances that militant fanatics have erected.” Yet neither is decisive to giving up one’s life for the sake of killing others.

In those 2-highlighted sentences, that author has added some fuel to the fire! But I suspect he will leave us hanging – mind you, as I write these comments, I am reading the Post for the very first time! I anticipate and pounce! If I am wrong, I will publish anyway along with a Doubting Thomas’ Apology! The Prime Directive here is EDIFICATION regardless of whether it comes from me or someone else.

 

In nearly all cases, the jihadi terrorists have a patently self-evident ambition: to establish a world dominated by Muslims, Islam, and Islamic law, the Shari’a. Or, again to cite the Daily Telegraph, their “real project is the extension of the Islamic territory across the globe, and the establishment of a worldwide ‘caliphate’ founded on Shari’a law.”

That Author has jumped to the General, but the General about Muslims, not about Western Capitalists! He sounds like a Republican to me – excellent at analyzing the “Enemy”, but not very adept at analyzing “Capitalists in the USA”! Is this just one more attempt at IGNORING THE REAL ISSUE?

 

Terrorists openly declare this goal. The Islamists who assassinated Anwar el-Sadat in 1981 decorated their holding cages with banners proclaiming the “caliphate or death.” A biography of one of the most influential Islamist thinkers of recent times and an influence on Osama bin Laden, Abdullah Azzam declares that his life “revolved around a single goal, namely the establishment of Allah’s Rule on earth” and restoring the caliphate.

 

Bin Laden himself spoke of ensuring that “the pious caliphate will start from Afghanistan.” His chief deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, also dreamed of re-establishing the caliphate, for then, he wrote, “history would make a new turn, God willing, in the opposite direction against the empire of the United States and the world’s Jewish government.” Another Al-Qaeda leader, Fazlur Rehman Khalil, publishes a magazine that has declared “Due to the blessings of jihad, America’s countdown has begun. It will declare defeat soon,” to be followed by the creation of a caliphate.

 

Or, as Mohammed Bouyeri wrote in the note he attached to the corpse of Theo van Gogh, the Dutch filmmaker he had just assassinated, “Islam will be victorious through the blood of martyrs who spread its light in every dark corner of this earth.”

 

Interestingly, van Gogh’s murderer was frustrated by the mistaken motives attributed to him, insisting at his trial: “I did what I did purely out of my beliefs. I want you to know that I acted out of conviction and not that I took his life because he was Dutch or because I was Moroccan and felt insulted.”

 

Although terrorists state their jihadi motives loudly and clearly, Westerners and Muslims alike too often fail to hear them. Islamic organizations, Canadian author Irshad Manji observes, pretend that “Islam is an innocent bystander in today’s terrorism.”

 

What the terrorists want is abundantly clear. It requires monumental denial not to acknowledge it, but we Westerners have risen to the challenge.


July 26, 2005 addendum: I have covered a different aspect of this topic at “Denying [Islamist] Terrorism” and the follow-up weblog entry, “More Incidents of Denying Islamist Terrorism.”

Aug. 1, 2005 update: The Daily Telegraph picks up this theme, focusing on role of the caliphate, in “Fanatics around the world dream of the Caliph’s return.”

Dec. 12, 2005 update: For an ongoing report on responses to the caliphate idea, see my weblog entry, “The Caliphate.”

June 29, 2014 update: Of a sudden, a caliphate does exist, announced today by the group that calls itself the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The new caliph’s ruling name is Ibrahim. I will write more about it, but for now this article bears re-reading to understand the Islamist longing for an ancient and long-defunct institution.

Tabacco was Right – Correct again! (I must be very careful with that word.) This Author seemed at first sincerely interested in unbiased analysis. I was mistaken on that point!

 

This is just one more EVASION! Just one more APOLOGY for CAPITALISM by FOCUSING ON THE VICTIMS (ALL Muslims) and their violent responses to perpetually having their necks under the boots of Western Capitalists.

 

Surely the fault lies with the downtrodden, never the boot wearers! Should those, whose necks reside under Capitalist boots, thank the storm troopers for keeping their necks protected from other dangers? Should OPEC peoples thank America for the undying attention we pay to their OIL RESERVES?

 

Here that Author gets to Specifics about Terrorist Motives, but completely ignores the Overview. He portrays these Terrorists as buffoons, imbeciles or worse! That may sell newspapers and entice readership, but it does little to edify, clarify or inform.

 

I wanted to present more in this Post, but there really isn’t much more that will illuminate our Subject matter. I’d write an editorial myself, but if you are a Regular Reader here, you have already read my thoughts on the matter. Why gild the lily!

 


http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/redundancy

 

I will say only this: If the Western Powers had NOT reestablished the Jews and called it ‘Israel’ after thousands of years in Exile, there might not be a Middle East conflict today. Or at least our Capitalists would have to find another EXCUSE to STEAL THEIR OIL!

 

After all, the West did not reestablish Israel to benefit the Jews, but to benefit their own Lust for Muslim Natural Resources. Bush invaded Iraq under FALSE PRETENSES because Saddam Hussein made deals with the French, the Germans and the Russians – excluding the USA, whom he disliked immensely – and with good reason!

 

But Destabilization, WAR PROFITS & OPEC OIL CONTROL were always their GOALS!

 

Now I must pay adherence to my own message about ‘Redundancy’ lest I add Cicero’s technique of saying ‘what I won’t say’ to my other hypocrisies – rhetorical techniques.


EVEN LIBERALS LIKE HUFFINGTON POST

BARELY SCRATCH THE SURFACE


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/doug-bandow/terrorism-why-they-want-t_b_631942.html

At the very end, they scratch the surface:

Pakistanis believe the drones kill far more civilians than terrorists. Polls show enormous popular hostility towards America. Moreover, the U.S. has begun targeting Pakistani Taliban leaders. One U.S. official told the New York Times: “The Pakistani Taliban gets treated like al-Qaeda.” However, that encourages the Pakistan Taliban to treat the U.S. like al-Qaeda treats the U.S. One intelligence officer said: “Those [drone] attacks have made it personal for the Pakistani Taliban–so it’s no wonder they are beginning to think about how they can strike back at targets here.” Jeffrey Addicott, a former legal adviser to U.S. Special Forces, said: “Some of the CIA operators are concerned that, because of its blowback effect, it is doing more harm than good.”

 

The same appears to be the case in Afghanistan, where civilians are dying in air strikes, at checkpoints, and from drone attacks. Afghan Najibullah Zazi, arrested last fall for planning a suicide bombing in the New York subway, explained: “I would sacrifice myself to bring attention to what the United States military was doing to civilians in Afghanistan by sacrificing my soul for the sake of saving other souls.”

 

Certainly civilian casualties have spurred more mundane guerrilla opposition to U.S. forces. New York Times reporter David Rohde was held captive for seven months by the Taliban. After he escaped he wrote that he “saw how some of the consequences of Washington’s antiterrorism policies had galvanized the Taliban.” For instance, “They said large numbers of civilians had been killed in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Palestinian territories in aerial bombings.” To his complaint that he was a civilian, they said the U.S. “had held and tortured Muslims in secret detention centers for years,” so why “should they treat me differently?”

 

The point is not that there is never a legitimate case for military intervention or use of drones. However, the high costs of these tactics must be recognized and weighed. To reduce terrorism, Washington should do less, not more, abroad.

-

September 11 demonstrated that America is not invulnerable. Washington no longer can expect to invade, bomb, and intervene in other nations without consequence. Policymakers should consider all the costs, including terrorism, before they casually thrust the U.S. into foreign controversies and conflicts. As Glenn Greenwald put it, “if we continue to bring violence to that part of the world, then that part of the world—and those who sympathize with it—will continue to want to bring violence to the U.S.” That’s why many people in other nations not only hate us, but are trying to kill us.

Admittedly Obama’s DRONES have some causal effect on Terrorists. But REMEMBER that Terrorists were attacking America’s Weak Points (how about 9/11/2001) before Obama became President or Drones became so prevalent. So keep Drone Genocide in its proper perspective!


WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS,

THERE’S ALWAYS

WIKIPEDIA!


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_terrorism

 

Still, only about them; nothing

SPECIFIC about us! QED

 

In summation, just imagine how we Americans would feel and what we would do if another Power did to us what we do to others! Sounds like the Golden Rule to me!

January 27, 2015 ADDENDUM

 

It isn’t like Tabacco to publish a Question without at least attempting to supply an answer. I got so preoccupied with demonstrating the psyche of Americans and their refusal to FACE FACTS, that I lost sight of my own Quest.

 

So I ultimately published a Comment worthy of inclusion here. I myself often ignore Comments on Blogs I republish. So to prevent that from occurring here too often, I add here my own Comment, which is a recap of points made by myself, other Bloggers and their Commenters.

 

Like Most People, Tabacco Loves LISTS! So here goes!

 

Tabacco’s American Abomination Recap List

 

1 – USA Foreign Policy in General

 

2 – USA Wars on Muslim countries > Children’s Deaths ex
Starvation & Malnutrition

 

3 – Genocide / Collateral Damages

 

4 – Indiscriminant Killer Drones

 

5 – Abu Ghraib & Guantanamo

 

6 – Torture (Water Boarding, etc)

 

7 – Extraordinary Rendition

 

8 – Patriot Act

 

9 – Global Domination

 

10 – Military Contractors

 

11 – Control of Muslim OPEC Oil

 

12 – Unqualified Subsidizing of Israel including Israel’s own
brand of Apartheid

 

13 – Forcing “Americanisms” upon Muslims in Middle East

 

14 – Schadenfreude (End Zone Celebrations)

 

15 – Paternalism

 

16 – Personal Attacks on Islam, Muslims, the Quran &
Mohammed (Only a matter of time before Jesus Christ
gets public flogging – how do you think US Christians
will like that!)

 

17 – War Profiteering

 

18 – Degrading Muslim Quality of Life

 

19 – World Policeman (US Military Stationed In Muslim
Holy Lands)

 

20 – American Hypocrisies re democracy and fair play

 

Tabacco suspects that their Islamic Religion is the Fuel, which inspires their willingness to perform suicidal acts of bravery – that’s right: BRAVERY! When an American soldier gives up his life to save another American soldier, that’s what we call it. Why is it when a Muslim does it, it is called ‘Stupidity’ or ‘Insanity’!

 

If I can come up with 20 American Abominations, which cause Muslim ‘Blow-Back’ on us, why can’t the Mainstream Media come up with just 1 – 1 that is our Fault, not theirs!

 


Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.

 

 

If Tabacco is talking about a subject that nobody else is discussing, it means that subject is more, not less important, and the Powers-That-Be are deliberately avoiding that Issue. To presume otherwise completely defeats my purpose in blogging.

 

 

Tabacco is not a blogger, who thinks; I am a Thinker, who blogs. Speaking Truth to Power!

 

In 1981′s ‘Body Heat’, Kathleen Turner said, “Knowledge is power”.

    3- America is so great (everybody wants to come here, don’t they!)

    4- We send Attack Drones into OPEC countries for their own Good just as we incarcerate Black youths by the droves in the USA for the Good of Minority neighborhoods! Slavery was for their own Good too (White Man’s Burden)!

    Which Came FIRST? The Chicken Or The Egg?

    “September 11 demonstrated that America is not invulnerable. Washington no longer can expect to invade, bomb, and intervene in other nations without consequence. Policymakers should consider all the costs, including terrorism, before they casually thrust the U.S. into foreign controversies and conflicts.

    Tabacco: Remember that 9/11/2001 occurred prior to the most “recent” invasion of Iraq, Drones, Mass Genocides etc. So these Terrorist Retaliations could NOT be totally motivated by those occurrences, which succeeded 9/11/2001.

    Surely the IMPETUS for these RETALIATIONS rests at the feet of OUR OWN CAPITALISTS & WAR PROFITEERS!

    Such Retaliations – even if scripted by special interests – require time, planning, recruitment, training and a host of other requisites. So spontaneity is NOT a requirement for the Subjugated to respond to OPPRESSION. Look how long it takes for American Blacks to respond to the multitude of Oppressive Institutions foisted upon us in this country! Even American entry into WWII, though declared the day after Pearl Harbor, did not actually begin to take place in a split second!

    And just like the Capitalists do, the Terrorists don’t tell or have to tell the Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth when they speak to us. Why is that so difficult to understand? All of a sudden these ‘Islamofascists’ or ‘Islamaniacs’ we loathe and detest are now above reproach when they utter ‘Islam’, ‘driving USA out of Saudi Arabia’ and ‘worldwide caliphate’ as their motivations for attacking Americans in such a bloodthirsty manner? I think it is we, not they, who avoid giving True Reasons and prefer Excuses, euphemize, disinform and illogify (yes, I made that one up myself) the most! However we only see the Faults in others – never in OURSELVES! One of those Dingbats above made reference to that, but only as it applies to others – not to us! Admonitions rarely apply to the United States or Americans!

    We need to stop listening so much to what people declare as their Motives and begin to analyze which unspoken Truths are their true Motives and which spoken Affirmations are in fact their EXCUSES! Religion and Ethics have always been a very effective EXCUSE rather than a REASON!

    ‘Why’ is the One the Mainstream Media, the Politicians and everyone else seems to ignore in the Terrorism reports. All those folks can’t be that dumb, and, sorry to inform my Readers, but I simply cannot be the only smart guy in the USA!

    There is 1 exception to that Rule: LINKTV and Democracy Now!

    Some of you will invoke ‘MSNBC’! But you are DEAD WRONG! MSNBC supports Democrats like Fox News supports Republicans except MSNBC doesn’t tell LIES to deceive their audience – Fox News LIES all the time. Even MSNBC won’t report in plain talk what I have reported to you here. I know; I looked! That Question “What did we do to provoke Muslim Terrorists to do what they do?” is VERBOTEN, CAREER-ENDING, UNTOUCHABLE – even for MSNBC!

    Bill Moyers, Phil Donahue, Bill Maher and many others, who told the unvarnished Truth, were de-jobbed by the Oligarchs at the Top. Jimmy Carter, former President, wrote a tell-all book, and he can’t even get on stage at the DEMOCRATIC CONVENTIONS! Ask yourselves why! Carter does NOT toe the line! That’s why!

    Their fight is really with the Saudi Royal Family and their Monarchy if they attacked us because we used to have a base in Riyadh. Who was paying us large sums to help maintain that base there? Hmmm? And frankly, it seems a bit silly to still blame the USA for “corrupting” their royal family.

    It’s classic displacement. They can’t bring themselves to blame their own Government and so they blame the foreign “infidels”.

    People here use that kind of faulty logic often too. Sad really.

    Obviously these Dingbats never bother to do any Research before they open their humongous, stupid mouths! These ‘Americans’ are OFTEN WRONG BUT NEVER IN DOUBT!

    Success At Long Last! The Huffington Post touches on that verboten subject matter!

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mj-rosenberg/its-time-to-reconsider-us_b_3146845.html
    It’s Time to Reconsider U.S. Policies That Create Terrorists

    There is one change that the United States could make in response to the terrorism threat that is never discussed. That is to consider the part U.S. policies have played in creating and sustaining it.

    I understand that we are not supposed to say this, as if discussing why we are hated justifies the unjustifiable: the targeting of innocent Americans because of the perceived sins of their government.

    But nothing justifies terrorism. Period. That does not mean that nothing causes it.

    Tabacco: OK, so they discuss it from sort of backhanded perspective, but at least they do discuss it. “I understand that we are not supposed to say this, as if discussing why we are hated justifies the unjustifiable”.

    See, folks, even the Left-Wing Huffington Post must offer apologies and justify even broaching the Question! To read the entire Post, go to that link:

    Like Most People, Tabacco Loves LISTS! So here goes!

    Tabacco’s American Abomination Recap List

    1 – USA Foreign Policy in General

    2 – USA Wars on Muslim countries > Children’s Deaths ex
    Starvation & Malnutrition

    3 – Genocide / Collateral Damages

    4 – Indiscriminant Killer Drones

    5 – Abu Ghraib & Guantanamo

    6 – Torture (Water Boarding, etc)

    7 – Extraordinary Rendition

    8 – Patriot Act

    9 – Global Domination

    10 – Military Contractors

    11 – Control of Muslim OPEC Oil

    12 – Unqualified Subsidizing of Israel including Israel’s own
    brand of Apartheid

    13 – Forcing “Americanisms” upon Muslims in Middle East

    14 – Schadenfreude (End Zone Celebrations)

    15 – Paternalism

    16 – Personal Attacks on Islam, Muslims, the Quran &
    Mohammed (Only a matter of time before Jesus Christ
    gets public flogging – how do you think US Christians
    will like that!)

    17 – War Profiteering

    18 – Degrading Muslim Quality of Life

    19 – World Policeman (US Military Stationed In Muslim
    Holy Lands)

    20 – American Hypocrisies re democracy and fair play

    Tabacco suspects that their Islamic Religion is the Fuel, which inspires their willingness to perform suicidal acts of bravery – that’s right: BRAVERY! When an American soldier gives up his life to save another American soldier, that’s what we call it. Why is it when a Muslim does it, it is called ‘Stupidity’ or ‘Insanity’!

    If I can come up with 20 American Abominations, which cause Muslim ‘Blow-Back’ on us, why can’t the Mainstream Media come up with just 1 – 1 that is our Fault, not theirs!

    Today, May 23, 2016, I Sent Following e-mail To Family Members & Close Friends:

    Watch CNN Tonight 9:00pm – Fareed Zakaria ‘WHY THEY HATE US’

    I have NOT seen the program. CNN is promoting the hell out of it though. My latest Post, May 22nd, is dedicated to Fareed’s intelligent analysis.

    FAREED ZAKARIA On USA’s ‘PERPETUAL WARS’, “You Know You Are In Trouble When Your Strategy’s Success Produces More Problems Than Its Failure”.
    http://www.tabacco.t-a-b-a-c-c-o.org/?p=5328

    Tonight we find out if Fareed has the CHUTZPAH to tell the truth (implied in his title ‘Why They Hate Us’). It refers to Muslim Terrorists and how they perpetually attract new Converts to their cause. I trust Fareed, but I do NOT trust CNN and its bosses. Let’s see if Fareed sticks to the Media Analysis, which blames this growing Attack on the West on Islam, ‘self-radicalization’ and Muslim ‘insanity’ – OR – if he actually analyzes what the West has done to provoke this Response. I will be shocked if he does, but we can always have hope.

    After you watch CNN tonight at 9pm, then read my own Post for comparison to see if Fareed is allowed to tell the Truth on this touchy subject in America, (January 17, 2015):
    “What Did We Do That Provoked Muslim Terrorists To Do What They Do?” – The Pink Elephant In The Room! That’s The Question Our Mainstream Media Has Such Difficulty In Posing Or Analyzing. They Know The Question; They Just Refuse To Ask It! Wouldn’t You Like An Intelligent Analysis & Conclusion To That Q? I Know I Would! Since Nobody Else Will, Tabacco Steps Up To The Mic To Demand An Answer – “What Did We Do That Provoked Muslim Terrorists To Do What They Do?”

    Hopefully,

    PS Your personal comments on the subject are invited after watching ‘Why They Hate Us’ and reading ‘What Did We Do That Provoked Muslim Terrorists To Do What They Do?”

      Around 10:30pm tonight, May 23, 2016, I sent the following e-mail to the same recipients above:

      FOLLOW-UP CNN’s ‘Why They Hate Us’ – More Of The Same! BAIT & SWITCH

      First you must understand that all the Terrorists’ interviews for American TV are edited! CNN includes Comments that make Muslims appear like Religious Fanatics, Terrorist Propagandists and others, which reinforce the concept that Terrorists are just plain looney!

      If you interview American Soldiers serving in the Middle East, most cannot give you a reasonable and logical answer as to what that War is about. That’s because they have not been briefed on the Rationale for any War, only the PROPAGANDA! Similarly, Terrorists are like American Soldiers, who don’t even know what the Real Reason is for this particular War or any War for that matter. Generals don’t want them to know because those Reasons are ALWAYS SELFISH & NEVER HUMANITARIAN. Caesar’s soldiers, Napoleon’s soldiers, Hitler’s soldiers, Alexander’s soldiers, Patton’s soldiers – none of them knew the Real Reasons for that particular War or any War! And, like Donald Trump, they learn to speak – not the Truth – but what inspires the Troops! Truth is generally very dangerous and too risky to reveal to regular people.

      If you doubt this, ask yourself why the U. S. Government doesn’t tell us what they know about ET! Jimmy Carter admits it! Ronald Reagan had 2-close encounters of the 3rd kind. How many U.S. Presidents does it take before your Government will admit what most of us already know?

      CNN uses the same techniques it used in its oft-repeated Documentary on Wayne Williams in ‘Atlanta Child Murders’, while ignoring Fact that no charge, no indictment, no evidence has ever been presented in any Court or in their TV shows to demonstrate that Wayne Williams ever murdered any CHILD!

      Years ago I published ‘How Outsourcing Creates Jobs’. I found a Post by a College Prof. using that same title. His Post discussed all sorts of tangential Issues but never dealt with ‘How Outsourcing Creates Jobs’ – at least not how they are created in America. I contacted that Prof. and when I demonstrated his failure to answer his own title re Outsourcing, he replied, “It’s a moot point now; Outsourcing is now a Fact!” Except for continuing denials, that’s pretty much the same Tactic used by Bush once we knew for certain that Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11/2001 and his supposed witness ‘Curveball’ had lied. Once we were in Iraq, even Obama couldn’t get us out after Bush’s DUPLICITY got us into War!

      Both these Scenarios are examples of SOPHISTRY! I have published numerous times on Sophistry; here is just one such Post:
      SOPHISTRY In Politics! http://tabacco.t-a-b-a-c-c-o.org/?p=3652

      The Goal of the Sophist is NOT TO ACHIEVE TRUTH! The Goal of the Sophist is TO WIN THE ARGUMENT!

      When you interview persons, who are in a highly emotional state, you will always get insane response, not intelligent rationale. I’ve seen guests on Bill Maher’s shows, who demonstrate the same type of lunatic fringe demeanor. And most are Christian and Jew, not Muslim!

      Muslims execute homosexuals today. America executed Homosexuals, Witches, Innocent Blacks, perpetrated Gentlemen’s Agreement against Jews and African Slavery yesterday. Muslims may be behind us in many ways, but our own history is far from pristine! “LET HIM, WHO IS WITHOUT SIN, CAST THE FIRST STONE!”

      The Subject was supposed to be ‘Why They Hate Us’, not ‘Why Are Terrorists So Looney’! Of course we already know that Murder/Genocide/Slavery/Rape/Exploitation etc are all WRONG! If you conclude the Muslim Terrorists are Evil, I most certainly agree! There is no doubt about that! But what about American Murder/Genocide/Slavery/Rape/Exploitation! Why is that NEVER DISCUSSED? Not even on a TV Special entitled ‘Why They Hate Us’. Even on that program, American TV cannot approach the subject of American Evils, American Exploitation, American LUNACY!

      If nothing else, American TV is very clever. That goes double for the ?News? You will never view Tabacco being interviewed on the Mainstream Media. I only reproduce Comments on my Blog, which discuss the Issue, regardless of point of view. If I couldn’t handle the heat, I would get out of the kitchen. I CHERRYPICK! I’m not going to bore my Readers with Readers’ comments on the excellence of my Posts! Thank you, but no thanks! Anyone, in control, CHERRYPICKS!

      But I digress!

      “Why They Hate Us’? CNN never even attempts to answer ‘What Did We Do To Provoke Muslim Terrorists To Do What They Do’. I was pretty damned sure Fareed Zakaria would not dare do it. Why not? Because if he said what Tabacco said in my Post, Zakaria would never work in Mainstream Media again! That’s why! When Tabacco asks a Question, Tabacco answers that Question. I leave the Sophistry and Evasion to the Mainstream Sophists.

      It’s now 9:52pm and Zakaria promises to give his analysis of ‘Why They Hate Us’ after the commercials. Tabacco has been writing during most of this Farce! Now I’m waiting for the commercials to end so I can hear what Fareed Zakaria has to say re Zakaria’s own title ‘Why They Hate Us’.

      (Pause)

      His analysis is about most of 30,000 dead at hands of Muslim were themselves Muslim. Then he meanders off into Religious dogma and ‘broken politics’ (his phrase, not mine), but not a single word about what responsibility Americans have for Terrorism – not one word…yaddah, yaddah, yaddah, yaddah, yaddah! Fareed Zakaria is very intellectual, very clever and very sophistic!

      Even if Fareed Zakaria could not answer his own Question, Tabacco already has:
      “What Did We Do That Provoked Muslim Terrorists To Do What They Do?” – The Pink Elephant In The Room! That’s The Question Our Mainstream Media Has Such Difficulty In Posing Or Analyzing. They Know The Question; They Just Refuse To Ask It! Wouldn’t You Like An Intelligent Analysis & Conclusion To That Q? I Know I Would! Since Nobody Else Will, Tabacco Steps Up To The Mic To Demand An Answer – “What Did We Do That Provoked Muslim Terrorists To Do What They Do?”
