Greenwald: Canada’s ‘wallowing in war glory’ caused terrorist attacks

The left, especially journalists, seem pathologically incapable of seeing Islamic radicalism as the cause of violence in any situation. Islamist fanatics only attack the west because the west has first done something to them. They intentionally ignore the fact that Islam has been a religion of conquest since its beginning.

Not forbidden so much as naive. Islamist radicals need no provocation to attack the infidels.

Religion of peace or something.
