>>As terrorism follows its natural course to failure, deep Muslim grievances remain and cannot be ignored. It is likely Muslims will search for alternative, probably political, modes of expression.<<

Terrorism has never stopped Islam for pursuing it's expanssion campaign and immigration assault on the west.

It is part of islam to conquer the world and bring all people to surrender to their god Allah.

Terrorism could be frouned upon by some Muslem leaders because it has open too many eyes and shed the light on their Islamic schemes.

When force fails, use ruse, lies, and malice.

Ultimately the entire world will understand the true colour of islam which is far more dangerous than a few suicide bombers here and there.

It is not just terrorism that is going to fail but the entire ideological religion that is based on violence.

ĎThe Muslim world inevitably recognises that terrorist organisations are its enemies, too.í

Does it really? I suppose thatís why the so-called moderates start squealing about discrimination against Muslims every time the Western world talks about the need to protect itself from Islamic terrorists.

You fool only the wet left, Waleed. Fortunately, the people who make the rules donít take any notice of you. It takes more than a nice smile and a mild manner to convince people who really know their onions.

Waleed, a good article thanks. It as you probably expected it has fallen on the deaf ears of those who want conflict but is still worth saying.

The question that remains from that is "What are the political solutions which you think are required?"

If we are somehow able to stop those who want to fight from driving the agenda then what needs to be done? What will it take in the real world to address muslim grievances against the west?

How willing is the muslim world to deal with western concerns about issues in Islamic states? The behaviour of the Talliban and it's treatment of people and historical sites was a stench that could have been addressed first by muslims rather than US bombers and troops.

Cheers

Thanks Waleed. Please keep writing.

Why is it that when a muslim extremist says that all westerners want to take over the muslim world and convert muslims to Christianity we laugh, but when a westerner says that all Muslims want to take over the world and convert everybody to Islam we westerners take it very seriously?

The great majority of muslims are just trying to get on with their daily lives, make a living and love their families. If you asked the average westerner if he'd like to have his country invaded and occupied by the Iraqi army or if Iran should tell us if we should be able to enrich uranium, we'd be outraged, but turn the question around and it's good western policy.

Certainly all muslim and any other variety of terrorist should be hunted down and thrown in jail forever, but that does not make anybody of "middle eastern appearance" a terrorist. We will get further in stopping muslim terrorism by working with the majority of muslims who hate terror, than by demonising everybody who is muslim.

Hmmm, the question I have is, when was Al Qaeda officially taken off the CIA payroll? And what proof do we have that they ever were?

Nice article. Some comments, not so well thought out.

I was particularly interested in the suggestion that if creative ways to capitalise on the situation can be found the rhetorical dismantling of Al Qaeda may complete itself...

Earlier it was mentioned that the muslim world has been resentful of US support for oppressive regimes.

To me, this screams saudi arabia, which I'm quite convinced is the real hotspot for this 'war on terror'

Regrettably the saudi arabian share of the US economy is fairly hefty, so we're not about to see any hostile policies toward them, but I can't help but wonder what would happen if the US halted it's tacit support for the Saudi royal family.

Whilst the US needs all the friends it can get in the middle east, I can't help but feel this would be a positive step away from hypocrisy.
