As Al queda gave Muslims a bad name, why didn't the IRA give Catholics a bad name too?


Since 9/11 Muslims have been viewed with great suspicion, so why haven't all Irish Catholics been viewed the same way when the IRA was behaving at its worst?

    Further to this..... let's say that the IRA, in Ireland and England, was reacting to what we might call "intrusion" on their turf. Al queda (Islam) is an OFFENSIVE effort seeking to EXPAND their reach....

    I believe if you talk to alot of Moderate muslims they will tell you that Al-Qaeda has nothing to do with the true meaning of Islam and the Quran.
