Wikipedia says, “Terrorism is the systematic use of violent terror as a means of coercion.”
Under Wiki’s “Definition of Terrorism” (terror attack) there is further comment:
The definition of terrorism has proved controversial. Various legal systems and government agencies use different definitions of terrorism in their national legislation. Moreover, the international community has been slow to formulate a universally agreed, legally binding definition of this crime. These difficulties arise from the fact that the term “terrorism” is politically and emotionally charged.
Under Wiki’s “Pejorative use” [of terrorism] is an even more revealing comment:
The terms “terrorism” and “terrorist” (someone who engages in terrorism) carry strong negative connotations. These terms are often used as political labels, to condemn violence or the threat of violence by certain actors as immoral, indiscriminate, unjustified or to condemn an entire segment of a population.
“‘One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.’ This is grossly misleading. It assesses the validity of the cause when terrorism is an act. One can have a perfectly beautiful cause and yet if one commits terrorist acts, it is terrorism regardless.” — Adrian Humphreys
