Exactly who gets called a terrorist and what is labeled a terrorist act needs to be considered carefully these days, particularly in the current climate of Islamophobia.For some time now, people of Arab origin have often quickly been labeled as terrorists.Yet terrorism was introduced to this part of the world at the turn of the last century, brought by the Jews who, persecuted in Europe, arrived on our shores and stole a country through unprecedented acts of terrorism in this area.Murderous extremists such as Daesh (ISIS) adherents are clearly and rightly deserving of the term, whether they kill one person or a hundred people.
