I don't believe I said that people are born terrorists. Some are pre-disposed to listening to the rantings of lunatics. Do you try to understand the KKK? Do you wonder how we could make them happy? They make their own reason for hate, whether real or imagined. Just as some people in the US are more likely to listen to and agree with Rush or Beck others are likely to listen to the rantings of raving lunatics over there.
Note: I'm saying they are more like us than either side would like to admit, it's just that Rush and Beck aren't actually getting people to strap bombs to themselves.
