The man known as the "underwear bomber," Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, said in a statement that he read in court, while pleading guilty to the attempt to take down a plane on Christmas Day in 2009, the reason why he was trying "to attack the United States." He said his action was "in retaliation for U.S. support of Israel and in retaliation of the killing of innocent and civilian Muslim populations in Palestine, especially in the blockade of Gaza, and in retaliation for the killing of innocent and civilian Muslim populations in Yemen, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan and beyond, most of them women, children, and noncombatants."

After his capture, the FBI questioned Ramzi Yousef on the flight back from Pakistan about his motivations for bombing the World Trade Center in 1993. "Yousef said he took no thrill from killing American citizens and felt guilty about the civilian deaths he had caused. But his conscience was overridden by his desire to stop the killing of Arabs by Israeli troops." "Yousef said he "would like it to be different," but only terrible violence could force this kind of abrupt political change. He said that he truly believed his actions had been rational and logical in pursuit of a change in U.S. policy toward Israel. He mentioned no other motivation during the flight and no other issue in American foreign policy that concerned him." Steve Coll, Ghost Wars p273 http://representativepress.blogspot.c...

Ali Abu Kamal, armed with a .380 caliber Beretta handgun, "opened fire Sunday on an observation deck of the Empire State Building, killing one person and wounding six before shooting himself in the head." "Kamal's 48-year-old daughter Linda told the Daily News that her dad wanted to punish the U.S. for supporting Israel. ... three days after the shootings, Kamal's family got a copy of a letter that was found on his body, they said. The letter said he planned the violence as a political statement, his daughter said. 'When we wanted to clarify that to the media, nobody listened to us,' she said. 'His goal was patriotic. He wanted to take revenge from the Americans, the British, the French and the Israelis.' She said the family became certain that he carried out the attack for political reasons after reading his diary. 'He wrote that after he raised his children and made sure that his family was all right he decided to avenge in the highest building in America to make sure they get his message,' said Linda."

"Mr. Sirhan, a Christian Arab born in Jerusalem, said later that he had been angry at Senator Kennedy for supporting the shipment of jets to Israel." "When he was arrested he said: 'I can explain it. I did it for my country.' It is believed he felt betrayed by Kennedy's support for Israel in the 1967 Six Day War. He shot Kennedy exactly a year after the conflict." "Sirhan Sirhan, in his first television interview, said he felt betrayed by Senator Robert F. Kennedy's support for Israel in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and said he killed Mr. Kennedy out of concern for the Palestinians." ''My only connection with Robert Kennedy was his sole support of Israel and his deliberate attempt to send those 50 bombers to Israel to obviously do harm to the Palestinians,'' he said.
