You're missing the point - the thread was posed by way of comparison, as in "what about the Taleban?" Since you are starting out by comparing two situations, then comparisons are legitimate. But if you read back along, you'll see people who attempted to draw comparisons were told they were irrelevant.
"Oh and Kevin this does belong in this thread, it is exactly what I thought would happen considering the subject matter - can't be seen to condemn fanatical Islamic "freedom fighters" so distract and deflect the arguement so we can all blame Jews, the big bad west and GWB - didn't take long did it??"
and Bobad -
"This thread is about the Taliban, there is another one for slagging the Jews"
Get the drift?
