    We've been down this route before. Once anti-semitism was agreed by everyone to be a bad thing, but the Israeli government and its fans then just started using the word for anyone criticising Israel for anything. Consequently the word has become almost meaningless. It looks like we're going the sam way with the word 'terrorism'. It used to be that everyone knew what terrorism was and regarded it as a bad thing. Now, Israel's government and its fans is just starting to use the word about anyone who opposes their policies. The Freedom Flotilla was said to be a terrorist flotilla. People who stood up to IDF attackers with makeshift weapons were said to be terrorists. Now people who throw stones and petrol bombs at a security vehicle are said to be terrorists. That's all rubbish. Violent protest is NOT terrorism. You may not like it, but it's not terrorism. Weird really. Israel should know what real terrorism is, since the Irgun almost invented it.
