Can anyone really lay claim?
If terrorism is understood as waging war by attacking civilian targets, be they people or strucutres or possessions, this has been going on for ages. Organized as in the frequent laying waste of Europe during the 30 year war, going through extreme scorched earth practices (was Sherman's March to the Sea), Germany's bombing of England during WWII. Truth is, there is no one father. But an emblematic figure such as Arafat will do here. The most recent twist was the marriage of terror attacks with suicide.

I feel so miserable without you; its almost like having you here.

I respectfully submit that the British soldiers stationed in Palestine in the late '40s would make a good case that the Jewish "settlers" were pretty good terrorists, too.

RE: Ah, the peaceful virtues of Islam

I know of no one prior who used Arafat's technique of purposely targeting completely innocent civilians solely for shock value with no other real purpose. No, Arafat didn't invent terrorism, but he did put his own heinous little twist on what I refer to as modern terrorism. To me, he has earned that moniker. Personally, I find it absolutely shameful that he was allowed to die of natural causes.

There are many examples of Jews killing scores of civilians, but those civilians were typically not primary targets. Besides, they didn't go out of their way kill people who had nothing whatsoever to do with the conflict in order to garner attention. I'm not defending them -- just pointing out that Arafat took it to another level.

Mark might be refering to the Haganah.

GS, gotta go, but you might want to google Avraham Stern.

I'll admit that I have only a fleeting knowledge of these folks, but I believe they primarily targeted uniforms (military and police) rather than civilians, although there were some well-documented incidents where civilian presense was not a deterrent to their goals. Feel free to correct where needed.

Edit: I do have more than a fleeting knowledge of the activities of the Stern Gang.

Why can't we all fuckin get along?
I am tired of assholes dictating what the people should think of others. We are all fregin the same we eat, shit, screw and fart.
It's time that the Mullah in Iran take a whif of their own farts that's stinkin up the air and get real. Israel is here to stay and must be recognized. If the Arabs are smart they should not listen to Iran's bearded wakos and should embrace their cousins and learn to live in peace with them. Of course the extremists on the Israeli side must eat shit too and start respecting everyone else.
Well said Shabah.

It's one thing to "want their land back" and quite another for Iran to call for Israel to be wiped off the map and annihilated.

No wonder the West is so Islamophobic; we don't want a world wide Caliphate thanks very much.
