Point of fact, the US didn't 'create' Al-Qaeda (or Hamas, or Hezbollah, or ISIS, or any of the other numerous organizations dedicated to violence).

They did facilitate the organization and arming of Al-Qaeda with the short-sighted policy of arming Afghan rebels against Soviet Invasion in the '80s. Arming these groups who, at the time, they believed they could control but turned out to be spectacularly wrong, Like Australia, who imported Cane Toads in an attempt to control Sugar Cane Beetles, they ended with a solution that led to a much bigger problem.

The fact that the US supported Afghan rebels -- including the antecedents of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda -- is not a secret, or a conspiracy, or 'revealed facts' known only to a few. It's a matter of public record and it doesn't say anything about American Foreign Policy other than it's very difficult to predict the future of foreign affairs.

So, you should probably stop pretending to be privy to 'the truth' and trying to enlighten the masses and get a day job.

I think author is correct US did Create them means , and US even given them a name , without our dirty bloody US Dollar, or provide the many modern US arms/weapons... they would not be so organized and form a large group of rebel fighting force.

You should probably stop using most of your electronic devices as nearly all of them will include technology either created in Israel or created by a company with offices in Israel.

Start with Intel and work your way through them.
You may not be able to post here anymore since you are probably using Israeli tech to do so.

Israel-haters are known to be hypocrites but you seem pretty truthful about your beliefs and intentions.

Compare that to the numbers of women and children massacred by Israelis in uniform and it turns out the biggest and most murderous terrorist organisation on earth is the IDF.

Remember kids. Most products made in israel start with the bar code 871 or 729.

Since they won't stop the genocide because of concern for human life, maybe they'll stop because of concern over how much they have in their wallets.

If you only have to boycott one company in protest at the actions of Israel, choose coca cola.

Got any proof of that?

If you click the link to the boycott israel site, you'll see a few companies have already been taken off the list.

E.g Disney used to be on the list when they put up a propaganda exhibit in the epcot centre which said Jerusalem was the capital of Israel. Once it had been pointed out to them that Jerusalem is a free city under international law and couldn't posibly be part of Israel, never mind the capital, Disney realised their mistake and took down the display.

Now they aren't on the list any more.

What about the massacre of 10,000's by Syria, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, US, NATO, Russia, France, half of Africa......

Just admit you are a hypocrite and its about Jews and not the conflict.

So you are lying again,

THE ARAB-ISRAELI CONFLICT HAS ONE OF THE LOWEST CASUALTY RATES IN MODERN HISTORY WARS. YOU LIE.

Over 70% of Gazans are women and children but only 34% casualties.
The largest group killed is males 20-29. SO YOU LIE AS USUAL.

The Palestinians massacred more Jews during the intifada.

You are ignoring the fact that Hamas get caught each battle lying about the fighters. Eventually once the facts are out it is clear that around half of the killed are terrorists which in war ratios is more impressive than any other military in the world where number are often 10 times higher. YOUR HATRED BLINDS YOU TO THE FACTS.

You don't care about innocents as you were not doing the same when Jewish children were being massacred intentionally.

You have still not given another option for Israel to defend its citizens from Islamic Extremists.

This is not a conflict subject and I read it in an English newspaper. I am sure if you actually researched the subject you could find it with an easy google search. Believe it was Oxfam which gets funding from Cola which was at the forefront of boycotting Sodastream. Scarlet Yohansen also stopped representing Oxfam in favor of Sodastream

What a moral light Disney.

SHOW ME ANYWHERE IN INTERNATIONAL LAW WHICH MAKES JERUSALEM A "FREE CITY".

YOU LIE YOU LIE YOU LIE.

THE ONLY TIME IN HISTORY THE CITY HAS BEEN FREE IS UNDER ISRAELI RULE. you are not interested about freedom but just attacking Israel. gets clearer each post.

P.O.S.
Now I have set the observatory to track you for the next several days.
I've been reading many posts about you on other threads. Your name is associated with the terms "sock puppet" and "TROLL"
Now to see the beast as it was described, making the above statement I have verified you to be an abuser. NOW You're going to have a very Unpleasant experience with Topix and ME.

Hamas and Fatah are clear about their intentions in every part of their society. What bothers me is the hypocricy from the Free world.

Where were all the complainers here when Israeli women and children were being massacred by the hundreds by "Palestinians civilians".

What about the cleansing of Christians in Iraq? Over 40 children had died of hunger.

I can understand people who care for life; makes sense.
What i can't understand is why they consider other massacres irrelevant.

During the intifada the IDF killed more civillians than every terrorist group in the region combined, just like they always do.

So why mention it?

As for half the killed being terrorists:

1) You don't have anything whatsoever to back that up
2) You'd class any palestinian who took up arms a terrorist.

You can spam all you like and post as many distractions as you like but the fact is your extremely powerful nation is massacring a people who have no real way to defend themselves and you blame the whole thing on any who might try to stand against you.

Today israel created more terrorists than they killed. Yesterday they did the same. They've done that every day for decades now.

Yitzak Rabin wanted peace but he was murdered because deep down, Israel doesn't.
