What is your view on terrorists? If you could, would you speak to Osama bin Laden in a diplomatic fashion?

My view on terrorists is that one, they are not evil and two, they are only responding to the threat of our society that they feel will destroy Islam.

Update:

First off, thank you for your responses. Secondly, I mean absolutely no disrespect to anyone who died at 9/11. To the person who said Muslims train their babies to hate, how as a human being can you say anything so preposterous? And responding to Beth M, the Crusaders for the Christian side committed just as many if not more atrocities than the Muslims did.

    Talking diplomatically shows strength in your own character. Anyone can call OBL a 'jerk' but it takes real understanding to stop future terrorist attacks from happening. OBL is not the only terrorist, terrorism has been around long before him and nor is terrorism always linked to Islam.

    OBL also has support from all the innocent families American armies have 'accidentally' killed, an act, which many could also say was an act of terrorism!

    Also America doesn't do its reputation any good with their interrogation techniques degrading men then photographing them.

    Remember 'one mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter'

    maybe ur right..maybe terrorists are responding to the threats that they think will destroy Islam. However anyone who is a terrorist isn't behaving Islamically and cannot call himself a terrorist. Because it is forbidden in Islam to behave in such a way. These people are an insult to Islam..and not Muslims in any way. They haven't got a clue. They should try reading and understanding wot Islam says before they behave in such a pathetic way.

    As far as Osama Bin Laden goes...why would any normal civilian speak to him? When its people like George Bush who are in friendly circles with Osama and his family. Why else wouls Mr. Bush safely fly all the Bin LAden's out of USA after 9/11. If Mr. Bush and his people were not gaining financially and did not have friendly realtions woith the Bin Ladens, then why did he do this? The sooner the average person realises that this whole Osama thing is a conspiracy for financial gain by Mr. Bush and his people...the better.

    Have you done any research at all? Obviously not. You might start by reading Osama bin Laden's letter to the American people to see what he wants from us. If you read his letter you will note that the first thing he wants from the West is:

    "1) The first thing that we are calling you to is Islam. "

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2002/nov/24/theobs...

    As to why the radical muslims hate the West you should read the book, MILESTONES by Sayyid Qutb. He is the root from which grew radical Muslims.

    In the Six Days War, Israel crushed a superior force of the Moslem countries. Ayman al-Zawahiri, al Qaeda's number 2 man, worried how that could have happened. The conclusion was that Allah was angry with Muslims and allowed it to happen. They believe they must return to worshipping Allah as Muhammad did about 1400 years ago. They believe Western ways are an anathema and must be destroyed to purify the world.

    Therefore, like Hitler, you can't speak to Osama bin Laden in a diplomatic fashion. Lies are part of their repertoire.

    No. What is diplomatic about Osama bin Laden? The man believes in hate, and the murder of Innocent people! Can a man who believes like that be reasoned with? Anyone who says yes, if a ignorant, and a fool.

    Look at your history. Who attacked whom? Where are you getting your thinking from?

    We didn't attack Osama, he attacked us!

    Where has common sense gone? I wonder.

    The United States is the only country in the world that has been condemned by the World Court in Hague for terrorism. (Nicaragua) The US has attacked and occupied Iraq in violation of the UN Charter causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians.

    The biggest terrorist state in the world is the United States. The case against Osama Bin Laden is very weak. The US routinely cooks intelligence and has no credibility with most people in the world. The video of the Bin Laden confession is a fake that even an amateur sleuth can detect.

    I'm personally against terror, and I think we need to stop the United States foreign policy that induces terrorism throughout the world.

  • Wait what is your definition of a terrorist?? A terrorist is a person that uses violence against civilians to achieve political or ideological objectives by creating fear.Their sole motive is to use acts which are intended to create fear (terror), and deliberately target or disregard the safety civilians so if someone uses fear to get they point across that's defiantly the wrong method to show your dedication to your religion. I don't know what exact words i would use if any he killed many innocent people with no regard for their families or respect for human life in general.

    There is no talking to people like Bin Laden. He is not the leader of any country.

    He is the leader of an extreme violent sect, who does not work within the limits of any law or decency.

    Yes, he is fighting for his beliefs, but that doesn't make what he is doing acceptable or right.

    This County is NOT trying to destroy Islam!! This Country was founded on religious freedom!

    It is Islams duty to spread their religion throughout the world and kill the Christians and Jews. Can't you see it happening in the Netherlands, the UK, France and now here?

    Terrorists ARE evil. They teach their babies hate from the day they are born. They would rather behead us than try to live with us. You need to do your history lessons into ancient Persia and up to the Crusades.

    You are so very sorely misguided....God help you.

    Source(s): The Muslims DO train their children to hate! Didn't you watch the special on Glenn Beck show on CNN? The documentary where they taught school children to hate Christians with dolls and videotape? It was so unbelievably unsettling to watch children as young as three years old stab those dolls! I cried that night out of frustration and fear for those children.
