This explanation comes from an administrator of an Islamic discussion group. He is trying to explain to the members that the forum does not support terrorism or allow people to post and speak in support of it. Yet this is what the administrator said to support his point:
“Killing civilians is totally prohibited in Islam. But individual terorists is one thing, and state terrorism is another. Its a disaster when the most powerful nation on earth turns its army into a terrorist mega group. Terrorists don’t have access to US arsenal of lethal weapons of mass destructions, they can wrongly behead a few innocent guys, but a terrorist state army is, unfortunately, able to wipe whole cities from the face of the earth. And please remember, did you hear of any Iraqi terrorist, any incident of beheading, before the US invaded and occupied Iraq? did you hear of any palestinean who blew himself up before zionists stole their home land?
Did you ever hear of 9/11? Or, for that matter, of numerous attacks by Muslims on Jewish settlers in what is now Israel before 1948?
Terrorism is totally condemned by me, as well as any true Muslim, but it is a state army of terrorists with high adrenaline and shoot-them-up gamers in uniform, behind real big guns, that the world should really be more worried from. The US is the only nation that I know of that trains its army personnels to ‘kill’ not to ‘fight’. They are instructed, for example, to demolish a whole building on its inhabitants, instead of searching for someone hiding inside. They don’t give second thoughts on innocent civilians killed in the process. What the US is doing is simply making this world less safe for us to live in, pushing whole generations to a lose-lose situations, where you get so desperate, that life and death look the same. Their use of inhumane excessive force are urging more people to turn themselves in to terrorist ideologies, everyday, where taking ones own life, and the mercy of God in the process, without realizing it, is not accounted for anymore”
Of course, in reality the American military is trained to take great care not to harm civilians. But I don’t think this fellow is much interested in reality.
