ARE THE ACTIONS OF TERRORISTS JUSTIFIED?
- April 18, 2003
Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, in a speech before 150,000 supporters in a Beirut suburb said the U.S. will be made to suffer greatly as a result of its presence in Iraq, according to a report in the L.A. Times: "In the past, when the Marines were in Beirut, we screamed, Death to America! Today, when the region is being filled with hundreds of thousands of American soldiers, Death to America was, is and will stay our slogan. Even before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq began”, Nasrallah raged, "The people of the region will receive [America] with rifles, blood, arms, martyrdom and martyrdom operations.” Hezbollah, the so-called "attack dog" of its sponsors Iran and Syria, with active terrorist cells on four continents, has made good on its threats before: In 1983, the group blew up the U.S. Embassy and the Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, killing hundreds. The Marines were there to help cover Israel’s withdrawal from the capital.

“Defend the faith”
Democracy means separation of church and state
Submission to God (not to a government, especially a foreign government)
Spend on the poor, not the development of buildings and banks in an effort to
accumulate wealth for yourself
The idea of using armed self-defense as a means of retribution against tyranny,
exploitation, and oppression in order to defend the freedom of faith…

*Asked whether he approved of terrorism and attacks on civilians, he replied:
"We believe that the worst thieves in the world today and the worst terrorists are the Americans. Nothing could stop you except perhaps retaliation in kind. We do not have to differentiate between military or civilian. As far as we are concerned, they are all targets."
“Declaration of war against USA…
…because the USA declared War against God”
“Jihad against Jews and Crusaders”
“The duty of Muslims is to carry out holy war against the enemies
of Islam and to expel the Americans from the Gulf region.”
“Cut off the head of the snake”
“The presence of U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia, the home
of Islam's holiest sites, the suffering of the Iraqi people as
a result of sanctions imposed after the Gulf War, and U.S.
support of Israel.”
-Usama Bin Ladin, 1998 fatwa
"we do not differentiate between those dressed in military uniforms and civilians; they are all targets in this fatwa."
Intellectual Jihad - Usama wants to spread Islam to all humankind
IS IT REASONABLE TO CONSIDER THAT THE TERM JIHAD MAY NOT HAVE BEEN MISINTERPRETED BASED ON EXTREMIST’S VIEWS AND USAMA’S STATEMENTS??
Who thinks that the Islamic fundamentalists idea of a
“Jihad” (Holy War / terrorism) is justified?
