If they provided money, support (physical or moral) or made any other type of contribution such as teaching hatred and destruction towards America in the mosques, then they should be held responsible, otherwise
Of course not! That’s just a misconsception! Sure the people who committed 9/11 may have been Muslims (the people who practice Islam), but they only represent a small group of Muslims that call themselves al Qaeda, which is just a terrorist group that practices Islam. But they do not represent Islam as a whole.
Islamic law would hold those who committed acts of terrorism accountable regardless of their religion. Islam does not condone violence and terrorism. I think 9/11 was the result of ignorance which bread hatred and terrorism and unfortunately innocent people suffered and continue to suffer on both sides whether they be Muslim or not.
i would like to thank you all in your answers. many of you, even non-muslims understand that islam does not teach terrorism.
however, i just would like to notify everybody, that taleban, first came to being in 1979. russia invaded afganistan, and muslims from around the world got together to fight.
some of these lot had the old lee enfield rifles from the great war! so one should ask, where did they get thier weapons from?
the answer-U.S.A provided soviet made weapons (so that it wasnt blatently obvious that US was involved) and C.I.A pakistan provided training and and leadership.
one example would be the stinger missile. in 1986 US gave stinger misslies to take out soviet helicopters.
by the end of the 1980’s russian troops had reached 15,000 casualites. and afganistan had over a million and a half people dead.
so al-queda was born in this era, and was fed from birth by the US.
so why did it all change? – during the war, america promised to help the afgani’s, but as the war ended, america turned the other cheek and no more support was given. some people were furious because afganistan was ruined, fighting the war for americas behalf.
also, this was the same time now when iraq invaded kuwait. and saudi arabia felt threatend. American troops set up base in saudi arabia and promised to help the iraqis (another broken promise) and only went as far as liberating kuwait.
people like osama bin laden, felt furious for the double standards america showed and thier selfish policies. america at this time now was also funding isreal, with miliatry aid, and that became ever more obvious and the devastaion caused by this angered more people.
after this led to events which just pitted both sides against each other, and the once friend, was now enemy. in 1998 america attacked afganistan via cruise missiles.
all am saying 9/11. a deep tragedy of course. but it could have been prevented. American foreign policy played and still plays a big part in the anger of such people, and some people show thier anger in wrong ways.
from an islamic point of view, the lesser jihad (jihad comes in two parts, the greater being an internal struggle to do good in life), is allowed in times of oppression. it is allowed to free your lands. it is not allowed to target or kill innocent civilians.
so within islamic teachings, there is justification for counter attack, to defend yourself. but no justification for 9/11, or suicide.
ask yourself this: Are the countless Christian, Hindu,etc originated terror groups held responsible by THEIR religious leaders and communities?
If they don’t condemn it, yes.
If they sanction it to be emulated, yes twice.
If they help cause another such attack, they need to be seen as simple enemy thugs.
It’s really very simple after all.
The attacks on 9/11 were by Terrorists
There are and have been Terrorists all over Iraq.
There is a common thread.
If you are asking if Iraquis had something to do with 9/11, I don’t believe so.
Either way, All the terrorists need to be stopped.
Absolutely, especially in the strategic sense. Nations (Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, etc), unable to influence the west (especially the US) militarily, economically, or diplomatically have relied on terrorism as the 4th form of diplomacy to influence a population directly. Iraq was and is a very overt move to take that option off the table
no, don’t think so
I think so.
Yes there is. Bush uses 9/11 as an excuse to keep troops there and other places in the world. Every country has terrorists I grew up in the sixties and I really believe that by todays standards, Woodstock would be considered a collection of terrorists.
The attacks on 9/11 stunned America and demanded retaliation. Since the nature of the terrorists is to have no tangible location to attack, Iraq is where that demand for retaliation was satisfied. Until it dragged on and people are noticing that a war on Iraq has done little to supress terrorism.
Yes, because the attack in 9/11 was made by terrorists and America invaded Iraq saying they are fighting terrorism.
Though i am convinced that this is not its main reason.
Seriously, now days whenever someone mentions terrorism it is automatically assumed that it is a doing of Islam. Or whenever a Muslim person does something bad, it is looked at as terrorism. But if anyone else does something bad, then it is just their individual action. Like the Christian fundamentalist who blow up abortion clinics.
What’s up with that?
At least some part of it is done to make our involvement in Iraq justifiable to the american people. There are christian terrorists blowing up abortion clinics, dog pounds, and other christians. There are ecoterrorists attacking oil platforms, fishing ships, and logging communities.
The problem is that it was muslims that caused the highest profile terrorist act in many many years. To gain support and recruits these terrorist groups claimed it was offensive Jihad; thus making it a religious issue, not a political one.
The acts of 9/11 led (through questionable logic) to the current war in Iraq. Both the current administration and the many terrorist groups involved are making it a religious issue. The local muslim groups are invaded by outside groups claiming to aid in the defensive Jihad. The US has made it a religious issue to make it easier to distinguish between the government of Iraq and the many hostiles.
Basically, this is the current issue that is monopolizing the news lately. As such, the majority of terrorism that people are seeing/hearing about is muslim terrorism.
While it may not be right, these are some of the reasons it is happening.
Without going into many debatable details, I suggest you obtain a copy of the Koran and read it.
You will then be able to answer your own question(s)
You gotta point bato…I don’t know….we do not like that Islam Jehad people blowing up our airplanes and buildings. I guess that is the truth to the answer. Sense so many of them have attacked us then well I mean you gotta think they will be coming after us.
You know just think of it as a Gang war Bato…you have a bunch of Cripts coming after you….you will hate Cripts you know? Cripts will be the worse people….it is all the same thing.
You know for a person like me whom has never had a Cript (or any other gang) come after him I would have no position…thus I would not nesserly be afriad of any of them
Its all becoz america’s propeganda. america needed to enter the asia so he blamed usama for 9/11 after on he attacks on muslims isn’t it terror? israil attacks lubnan; isn’t it terror then why muslims are assumed terrorist. Please comment my answer i am waiting for you comment on my answer. Thank you.
Blowing up an abortion clinic can save thousands of innocent lives at the expense of a few guilty ones.
The bloodthirsty Islamic love of terrorism is usually directed at the innocent.
