Terrorism is defined as “the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.”
The horrific violence in Europe and current stabbings in Israel against innocent civilians is “what terrorism looks like.” It is being incited by radical Islamic imams in mosques and radicalized Islamists in social media, to promote religious and political agendas. It could occur here, at any time.
HonestReporting.com believes terrorism needs to be “called out” wherever and whenever it occurs. This media watchdog invites us to sign their petition, demanding the media use the word terror consistently, whenever innocent men, women, and children are attacked or murdered by radicalized religious or political zealots. There may be various contributing causes for the regional and religious unrest, but never an excuse for “the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.”
Please add your name to the petition, if you agree: http://honestreporting.com/a/petition/halabi-street.html
