All Terrorists Muslims?

Reader comment on item: No American Muslim Terrorists? [A Reply to Spencer Ackerman]

Submitted by Joseph Wallace (United States), Dec 12, 2005 at 17:17

Jay Martin Bennett writes that "Not all Muslims are terrorists. But all terrorists are Muslims." That is not true sir. In fact it is a blatant distortion of history. Eric Rudolph, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nicholes were\are non-Muslim terrorists. The Irish Republican Army and the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka are not Muslims, nor are the various Marxist terror outfits in Columbia and the Philippines. Or how about Aryan militant William J Krar who was caught with chemical weapons? (http://www.adl.org/learn/news/extremist_chemical.asp). Do you not consider all these non-Muslims as terrorists?
