    Who is a terrorist? The pilot who helps to drop over 1 million cluster bombs on civilians? The IDF person who bulldozes a home? What about the US bomber pilot who drops napalm Mark 77 on civilian on the Tigris bridge from 35,000 feet? How about the pilot who flies over in a sonic boom to terrify small Palestinian children? How many such flights have been flown over Israel'is by Palestine? By Lebanon? How many cluster bombs lie all over the towns and cities of Israel dropped by Lebanon or Palestine? How many cluster bombs lie all over the US dropped by Iraq or Afghanistan? How often has Iraq invaded the US? What about Afghanistan? How many tonnes of depleted uranium are spread all over the US by anyone on earth? What about bunker busters, or atom bombs or carpet bombing? What's that? None you say. Well how clever of you. The International court of justice and the UN have ruled that the territories must be given back as their theft was not in a defensive war.
