From Created Minority Report and it's my thought also running on this question!
Obama said today:
Governments that deny human rights play into the hands of extremists who claim that violence is the only way to achieve change. Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process and express themselves through strong civil societies.
Yeah, terrorists have "legitimate grievances" y'know.
It's funny. Everytime Obama brings up the violence radical Muslims do, he brings up the Crusades. I wonder if he'll ever bring up the "legitimate grievances" Christians had with Muslims which led to the Crusades.
prolly not, right?
