There is always a great deal of discussion in the mainstream media of what exactly constitutes a “terrorist.” Slyly dishonest Islamic supremacists in the U.S. such as Hamas-linked CAIR’s Hussam Ayloush reassure credulous audiences by proclaiming, “I condemn all terrorism, including state terrorism” — without bothering to explain that they don’t consider Islamic jihadists to be terrorists, but do consider Israeli forces and American troops in Afghanistan to be terrorists. Ultimately, the question of who and what constitutes a “terrorist” is subjective and useless. The still-unanswered and much more important question is whether or not the West is going to defend itself against Islamic jihad and the attempt to bring Sharia to free nations.
“Iraqi imprisoned in weapons plot defends insurgent activities, calls self ‘conquest resistant,'” from the Associated Press, February 8:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – An Iraqi man convicted of trying to ship arms and cash to Al-Qaida in Iraq says he is not a terrorist.
Instead, Waad Ramandan Alwan says in a letter to The Associated Press that he considers himself a resistance fighter.
Alwan is in a federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind., serving a 40-year-prison sentence after pleading guilty to taking part in a plot to ship thousands of dollars in cash and weapons from Kentucky to al-Qaida in Iraq in 2010 and 2011.
Prosecutors said Alwan worked with the Mujahidin Shura Council, a group that claimed responsibility for the deaths of three soldiers from the Fort Campbell-based 101st Airborne Division while they were patrolling about 60 miles south of Baghdad in June 2006.
