Terrorism, Terrorism, Terrorism

“Terrorism” is a word that has become a plague on our vocabulary, the excuse and reason for state-sponsored violence — our violence — which is now used on the innocent of the Middle East ever more outrageously and promiscuously…

Terrorism, terrorism, terrorism.

It has become a full stop, a punctuation mark, a phrase, a speech, a sermon, the be-all and end-all of everything that we must hate in order to ignore injustice and occupation and murder on a mass scale.
