    I thought people might be interested in some facts about a 17 century Catholic Terrorist.

    Why? To prove that this isolated group of zealots who tried to kill King James I 400 years ago translates to Catholics posing a realistic terror threat in the year 2007?

    Well done.

    The idea isn't to promote violence. It's to philosophically stand up against govt tyranny

    Philosophically=using bombs? Got it . . . .

    If the idea isn't to promote violence, why not go with Gandhi Day, or Martin Luther King Jr. Day? Oh, wait . . . because they didn't try to blow anything up. Not philosophical enough, obviously

    perhaps.

    But I see some similarities: people feel they are oppressed due to their religion and have no political power but do have access to explosives. Well, the next thing you know they are trying to blow people up.

    It aint nice but it seems to be a fairly common human reaction.

    thats a very thorough analysis there,
    thanks for enrolling us in terror sympathy 101

    in gaza, where no jews are around to "oppress" anyone
    people still have no economy to speak of
    and kill each other for entertainment
    whats their excuse

    1. I said "people feel they are oppressed due to their religion" didn't I?

    2. Gaza is surrounded by Israeli Territory, isn't it?

    1) just because you "feel" you are oppressed , or a imam
    or political leader tells you you are, doesnt mean you are
    no one is actually oppressing anyone, least of all israel

    if you dont have two dinars to rub together you dont magically
    get "access" to explosives unless some one hands them to you

    heres an idea
    why dont the paleo-jordyptians open up some beach resorts and foster tourism
    instead of running a dysfunctional unproductive society
    constantly asking for handouts and in a constant state
    of refugee-victimhood?

    2) crack open an atlas-gaza borders on egypt as well
    thats where a lot of that access to explosives comes from

    1 .Well you made it out that I agreed with terrorists and their violent acts. I do not. I just said when PEOPLE FEEL OPRESSED they sometimes throw bombs. I pointed to a case where Catholics did it. Please pay attention.

    2. I stand corrected.
