Terrorism

Hi my fellow cats

I have thought about it for some time, but I cannot find anything in The Cat History about terrorism and cat terrorists. Since 911 it seems to be human terrorists everywhere, and many criminals using or planning some sort of violence are called terrorists.

Before 911 a typical terrorist was a member of an organisation like RAF, PLO and IRA. Organisations that used terror systematically to create fear, attention and influence in a political struggle.

After 911 the concept is used more indiscriminately on e.g. islamic humans reacting violent on religious blasphemy like the Muhammad Cartoons. Why is that? Is the concept of terrorism just worn out, or is it because of the extensive anti-terrorism legislation made after 911 which empowers the authorities more than ever?

 

What do you think my fellow cats?
