    So, the Taliban, Al-Qaida, Hamas, Hezbollah are not nation-states, and therefore, haha, the "Israel-US Axis" you have invented has no right of self-defense to stop 9-11 atrocities, rocket attacks on civilians, suicide bombings, and have to either sit there and take it, or submit to the Will of Allah. Guess what - we in the "US-Israel axis" don't agree, won't play that game, and, we're going to fight back, so you can sit there in Thailand and shake your tiny fists all you want. For your information, the PA (including Gaza) has a seat in the UN,and therefore is a "nation-state" for purposes of Art. 51. And when a "nation-state" allows (or fails to prevent) use of its soil for acts of war, that soil falls under Article 51. And..you conveniently omitted "intentional" ("...violence against civilians") from your native speaker definition of "terrorism", which "American Citizen" probably didn't like either.
