UK newspaper publishes major article on terrorism, omits Israel

The United States government defines terrorism as any activity that is used to “intimidate or coerce a civilian population,” to “influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion,” or “to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping.”

Using that definition, one can then say the Israelis have been victim to multiple vicious acts of terrorism in the last 40 years.

Yet, late last month, when the Guardian published a major 2,200-plus-word article exploring the history of urban terrorism, there was not a single mention of the many recent acts of terror experienced by Israelis.
