Usama Bin Laden is seen as a terrorist by the average Joe , the same goes for Abu Sayaf , Hamas , Hizbollah , Islamic Hihad etc etc etc . But why are these people terrorists ? Terrorist simply points to a hostile person/group , and it goes through ceveral fases of identification before the word "terrorist" is used . What would a guy have to do or be to become a terrorist ? R there any rules to begin with , or are these identification processes simply randomly (unconsciously) chosen from millions of possibility , with the only demand of "fitting in" with the rest of picture . And when this term was re-introduced on 9-11 , Joe average saw a picture of a "terrorist" : He was Arab , Muslim , and didnt like jews or amerikans . And there u have it , ur terrorist . So the rule becomes , if u r like UBL on various levels(look/act/smell?) , u must be a terrorist ? Ofcourse this is getting a problem with other peoples who rnt liked , and dont look like Usama , like Jung Ill for instance . Then the axis of evil is created , to understand the terroristic outcome of a nation , who becomes a state that support terror . And on it goes the list of motives for people being terrorists and terrorists being bad people . Ofcourse its pretty difficult for those who are manipulated and are manipulating their own system , to identify and define Terrorism . Let me define terrorism : When a group/person organizes themselves to revolt against the opression of the hostile state , they are called terrorists . Its pretty simple , as long as these groups are the enemies of the states of Israel and Amerika , they r terrorists , since it is Israel and Amrika that (re)invented the word , and applying it . Its because they scare Amerika and Israel , since Terrorist means nothing more than Terror-Ist(Applier) . A terrorist can only be called Terrorist by the one who feels Terrorized . But what would be the outcome of a sincere "Terror" measurement , bitween the 100 m amerikans and 200 m Arabs ? would the psychological terror born on 9-11 be bigger than the physical terror born in '48 So who is the TerrorIst here ? I know i would be called a terrorist(supporter) , and as long as its by the people who are responsible for this terror they can so greatly define , im happy to be your terrorist . Its very interesting to know how Amerikans feel about this , since it is them everybody is pointing at , and in the Arab world tahts been happening for the last 50 years . Do u consider urself to be terrorists , because u terrorize and have terrorized about the entire planet , politically/economically/military/genocidical . Or is it just a cry for help when feeling that ur final day has come ? Havent u heard of how it ends with great empires ?
