    the truth is that the West, and Israel for that matter, teach the terrorists how to treat them. Spain sent a definite signal to Al Qaeda that terrorism works after when they immediately pulled out of iraq after a deadly attack on a train that killed almost 200 people. I guess they were hoping that Britain will do the same. Also, one cannot compare al-Qaeda and groups representing palestinians like Hamas. Though they both employ destructive and horrific means to achieve their goals, their goals are entirely different. Hamas wants self determination for palestinians, while al-Qaeda consists of crazy ideologues that will ALWAYS be angry about something. To those who say that the bombs are due to Iraq and Afghanistan, well then what was the motivation of 9/11? No Iraq or Afghanistan then! Osama was just upset that there is was American presence in Saudi Arabia. CLEARLY, a good enough reason to kill, what, thousands of people?? Al-Qaeda must be dealt a heavy blow, one that hits it at its core. After all, we teach them how to treat us, right?
