If somebody bombs your country, kills a million of your people, mostly kids, uses banned weapons, tortures your people, occupies your country for over a decade, desecrates your holiest religious places and steals nearly all your natural resources, you don’t have to be Muslim, a religious extremist or a terrorist, to swear eternal revenge. If the invaders had bullied, raped and killed your family, you would happily sacrifice your life to kill half a dozen of them or anyone who had collaborated with them.

This is the normal human reaction. Americans like to pretend the Middle Eastern desire for revenge and the willingness to die in the attempt is something unfathomable because they are deeply in denial about their own war crimes that triggered this extreme desire for revenge.
