    A Palestinian child who shoots a spit-ball through a drinking straw is a terrorist. Farmers defending their olive groves and Shepherds tending their flocks are terrorists. When property is destroyed, when hateful slogans aimed at another culture are scrawled on holy sites and when the targets belong to a similar or like ethnic group - the world labels this as terrorism, and labels the perpetrators as terrorists. These Zionist Settler Thugs are no different. They are terrorists - not "Activists." Israel now has active, home-grown terrorist groups in which entire neighborhoods and settlements act and collude together to perpetrate crimes against other ethnic groups. Unfortunately though, Israel once again is showing that it lacks the capacity for honest and unbiased self-evaluation. Israel is like a woman who maintains that the festering cancer on her face is a beauty mark.
