Chopra: Attack prompts tough questions

India at this moment has to contain any reactive violence from the fundamentalist Hindus, which is very likely and possible. So India has to condemn that by not blaming local Muslims. They have to identify the exact groups.

And the world has to be very careful that they don't go after the wrong people. Because if you go after the wrong people, you convert moderates into extremists. It happens every time, and retribution against innocent people just because they have the same religion actually aggravates and perpetuates the problem.

...

You know, terrorists call mechanized death from 35,000 feet above sea level with a press of a button also terror. We don't call it that, because our soldiers are wearing uniforms. They don't see what is happening, and innocent people are being killed. So, you know, terror is a term that you apply to the other.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Chopra is correct. It is the US and Israeli actions directed against ALL Muslims that drives moderates into being extremists. They see clearly and correctly that the US and Israel are not interested in peaceful co-existence. They see what is happening in Gaza, they hear the speeches about the "Clash of civilizations", they know the dirty tricks that are played then blamed on Muslims.
