Fanatic jihadists of whatever stripe? What's the difference?
Hezbollah, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood differ from Al Qaeda in a very important respect. They sponsor social programs and have political agendas. By contrast, Al Qaeda does neither.

The answer is because our leaders are sociopaths -- and are the world's leading sponsors of terrorism.
