Let's Remember: Not All Terrorists are Muslims

I've written about this sort of thing before ("Tamil Terror? Bomb Blows up Bus in Sri Lanka" (January 16, 2008)), and probably will again.

This time, a woman in Sri Lanka blew herself up at a railway station, taking about a dozen people with her. It looks like Tamil Tiger rebels - members of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam - arranged the killings. The Tamil Tigers say they've got a secular goal: an independent state for Tamil people.

A lesson here is that terrorism isn't an Islamic monopoly, it's not even necessarily connected to religion, and certainly isn't limited to the Middle East, Europe, and America.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
