Terrorism Isn't Terrorism, It's Terrorism

The UK Telegraph reports: The European Union, Arab nations and Israel have endorsed an anti-terrorism code of conduct, but failed to agree on a definition of terrorism. The row was resolved by removing a contentious section dealing with the right to self-determination and the fact that "terrorist attacks cannot be justified or legitimized by any cause or grievance". Mr Blair played down the failure to reach an agreement on the definition of terrorism. "If you look at this code of conduct, we are making it quite clear that people are united in their total condemnation of killing innocent civilians by terrorism," he said. Tovya says: Okay Mr. Blair, what exactly was the accomplishment? Everyone agrees that "undefinable terrorism" is wrong? So the new definition of terrorism is that there is no definition? Or did Mr. Blair mean that it's good that everyone agrees that terrorism is terrorism unless it is a Jew who is murdered, in which case it can no longer be classified as terrorism? Let's break this down just to make sure that I understand this correctly:
  • Dead Brit = Victim of Terrorism
  • Dead Frenchman = Victim of Terrorism
  • Dead German = Victim of Terrorism
  • Dead Jew = He had it coming?
I am glad we cleared that up, and here I was worried that the non-Jews might actually consider us their equals. I feel so much better now knowing that things haven't changed.
