Ted did nail it. And these middle class terrorists needed the platform of Islam from which to grow.

Not true. The Madrid terrorists, for example, met while playing soccer. Except for one of them, IIRC, they didn’t care much for religion. This is what happens when you call people like Sam Harris your “hero.”

Are we now talking about “correcteness” of fictional movies ?  Is there not something like a disclaimer clause?  “All characters and events in this show – even those based on real people – are entirely fictional”

George, did you not cite sports games as a platform for violence for some people? If they were not religious, would that not just make them hooligans?  Terrorists have an agenda.
Check out the following:  http://patcondell.net/page4/page4.html  Those are examples of terrorism based on a platform of hatred. Please note that the spelling clearly indicates that the authors are mainly foreigners living in England. Apparently there are not concerned with political correctness.
