Terrorism is not confined to Islam

  •               The Jewish Defense League (JDL) founded in 1969 by Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York City, with the declared purpose of protecting Jews from harassment and antisemitism. FBI statistics show that, from 1980 to 1985, 15 terrorist attacks were attempted in the U.S. by members of the JDL. The FBI’s Mary Doran described the JDL in 2004 Congressional testimony as "a proscribed terrorist group". The National Consortium for the study of Terror and Responses to Terrorism states that, during the JDL's first two decades of activity, it was an "active terrorist organization.

                Christian Terrorist, David Mcmenemy drives a car doused with gasoline through the wall of the Edgerton Women's  Health Center. ( Sept 2006) " God sent the Shooter" the signs wielded by anti-abortion  protesters  at the funeral of George Tiller assassinated in church. (June 2009) Tragically similar to the 1998 murder of Dr. Bernard Slepian, Tiller’s murder was the culmination of years of attempted murders, death threats, bombings and arson attacks waged against abortion providers by white Christian terrorists.

                 Despite the scope of this orchestrated campaign mainstream media rarely identify these acts or those who commit them as “terrorist.”  Those who invoke Christian fundamentalism as justification for their barbaric incursions against women and their allies are dismissed as aberrations. God justifies there means. Sound familiar?

                 We too often times forget that there are Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Islamic, Jewish, Sikh and many other terrorist groups out there committing senseless violence, and these sick mad men all twist what each refer to as God's word in an attempt to justify this insanity.

    Jeff Austin Terrorism is terrorism, regardless of what ever label they choose to hide under. True followers of most faiths disavow terrorism or needless killing in its many forms. It is only the fringe extremists that conduct the terrorism.
