In whites' pespective, the INDIGENOUS Africans (not citizens like you frame them) were EXTREMELY threatening to the established power structures. Nelson Mandela was a "Terrorist" according to white people before he was a "nationalist." In both cases, white people were the ones who decided what he was = nationalist vs. terrorist. The white story was always the dominant one. The same case applies here. Palestinians are considered terrorists in the eyes of Israelis. When there is a Palestinian state, we're going to all of a sudden become nationalists, I suspect.
