"Bin Ladin did not say that he would only attack those who showed aggression against him, but sinply that he will attack. Civilians (friendly or hostile) are, after all, who government tries to protect. It is the most efficient way of attacking. They are trying to terrify the people in order to sway the government's decision, and who better to attack than those that are nice to you. It just shows how serious they are."

The lie I am talking about is the implied lie.
Since you were patient enough to sort out the subtlety this far, how about telling me whether it is not a lie to say Islam is merciful and imply they follow the Golden Rule, and then turn around and attack persons who are nice to them.

Alternately, it might have been someone else who committed the attack, but then I should not accuse anyone of lying if I don't know who might be doing so.

You're thinking of a government which educates its citizens in human rights and freedom.

If they indoctrinate their citizens in another way, maybe the actions of those citizens do represent the government.

Whattaya think?
