Attacks for the purpose of creating terror = terrorist attack. Now Muslims have taken the wrap for the term terrorist because of media. The term was heavily used for perpetrators of 9/11 and the failed attack in 1993 who happened to be Muslim. The term stuck, and now people associate Muslims with Terrorism although people of other nationalities and religions commit acts of terrorism more often. I was talking to someone about the Colorado theater shooting about a week ago, and they didn't seem to get what someone meant by "christian terrorist" although he christian and committing acts of terrorism. You will never see media refer to someone as a terrorist who isn't Muslim, and yup I blame media for that as well. Control media, control the information, control the world.
