government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives,” Terrorism in the United

Just a short list of American born terrorists. But do we here the phrase “American Terrorists” often? Do we relate to our neighbors as possible “terrorists”? Why when ever we here the words Muslim or Islamic, do we immediately think negative? Years ago it was Germans or Japanese or Latino or Italians we were concerned with. Now it seems we have another sect to pick on. The prejudice I am seeing lately from all around is shameful. This country is based on religious freedom and individualism. Please let’s remember all the lost military who died for those rights.
