The following is a short paper written by a young Muslim from the southern
part of the United States, while a freshman at the University of the District of Columbia, in 1974...I wonder what his thought are today...2010...hmmmm
In our day to day endeavors we all at one time or another are confronted with
the term "terrorism" . Many of us, sometimes take on biased attitudes about the term "terrorism". In many cases people are called terrorist, unjustly. In other words, the word "terrorist", is used sometimes to seek the sympathy of the public. For example, a writer would get much more sympathy by using the term "terrorist", instead or "revolutionary", or just a defender of his human rights.
One example of the misuse of the word "terrorist" is in the description of the liberation movement in Palestine. Here is group of people who have become refugees in their own homeland. The plight of the Palestinian is one known world wide, but when western reports describe the act of the Palestinians trying to free their homeland they are described as terrorist. The problem of the Palestinian could be compared to a man who owns his home and upon coming home one day he finds that someone has occupied his home. If this man has to bomb his house, or burn his house to get these intruders out, Then I feel it is justifiable. If you call this terrorism then I am for terrorism.
