You've forgotten both Hamas and Hezbollah who prey on their own as well as the Israelis. By the way, which of the two nations rejoices in the martyrdom of their children and teaches them hatred from infancy? Which dresses up its babies as homicide bombers and loudly proclaims "We love death more than you love life"? That's where evil is being instilled in people's hearts.
Haven't for gotten anything. Both sides have extremist everyone knows that. israeli are the ones using military force to control the people in the region. Your quotes are those of an extremist. Read the facts and look at the evidence, you'll see that the only ones with tanks and weaponry are the isrealis. They use all that military weaponry to control innocent Palestinian men, women, and children. That's a fact.

The Talebans and Afghans are quite brave when it comes to firefight and gun battles.
They face the enemy bravely and fight.

That is how they fight.
That the Taleban are hiding behind women and children or that they have human shields, is absurd and rubbish.
Typical Western propaganda.
So........ you simply dismiss a BBC article on the Taliban using human shields as "absurd and rubbish"... then you use a BBC article to support your claims? Don't you see the hypocrisy and contradiction in your posts?

Besides making empty assertions, you still haven't been able to debunk this BBC report.

It's the same thing I always say about militant Islamist supporters: If you love them so much, go and live with them under their rule. Unless you're willing to put your money where your mouth is, shut it and face the facts, and appreciate what your host country has done for you.

But of course they do not have the logic to comprehend that statement.

A friend of mine tells me they are creating a ghetto in Luton. He says this is turning into a no go area for non Muslims. This is the thanks we get for letting them into England.
