Why at least this "They" hate us

One of the terrorists being pursued in the "alleged" plot to blow up 10 trans-Atlantic airliners is Matiur Rehman who, according to Pakistani officials, was named during interrogation by one of the suspects being detained.

It is worth noting that Rehman is a leader of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a group whose primary activities have been the killing of Shi'ites in Pakistan and more recently, attacks in Kashmir. And it is a fact that most of the people detained in the British-plane plot had ties of birth or ancestry to Pakistan, a nation whose primary beef with the non-Muslim world is India and/or Kashmir.

Now, what was that about Iraq being a Jihadi recruiting poster? Liberals who think that Muslim hatred for the West would be significantly diminished had Al Gore been elected in 2000 and Chimpy McHitler retired to Crawford ... are simply deluded. India and Pakistan would still be fighting over Kashmir, and, through this sort of fertile imagination and conspiracy-mindedness of Western-residing Muslims, the West would somehow be to blame.
