Dr Issam Ghanim writes an article saying that the armies that achieve military occupation using regular forces are not necessarily capable of destroying the popular resistance, but the nature of resistance is the major axis. If it was a party-related one it would collapse after the defeat of the ruling party, but if it was based on an ideology it would be very difficult to take out the ideology from hearts of those who have preferred death to life. To describe the mujahidin against an occupation that violated the international law as being outlaws is something very stupid because they are fighting the law of the jungle. The real purpose of fabricating a war against terror is a justification of occupations before the western peoples and also to exercise pressure on the Arab rulers to normalize relations with Israel. Thus the fight on terror is a terrorist policy.
