A terorrist went on a murderous rampage with a bulldozer in Jerusalem, killing three and wounding dozens.

Meryl has more.

The “terrorist” was a convicted rapist, a suspected drug addict, and the father of a child by a Jewish-Israeli woman.

A criminal and a murderer, certainly — but a terrorist? The jury is out. Unless you’re the sort of bigot that thinks that any criminal act by an Arab in Israel is terrorism.

I don’t think you are that sort of bigot, Sari.

Ikram! Where’ve you been – it’s been forever! How are ya?

Anyway, the jury’s still out on how organized the attack was, but the guy was every bit as much of a terrorist as someone like the Unabomber, for instance. Individual crazies motivated by hate and doing things to inflict panic and terror are terrorists, too.

Unless you were just itching for a linguistics debate, mind you. I’m always up for a fun one of those.
