The most miss/overused and politically incorrect word in the English language. The word terrorist is used by media and politicians to create fear and convince people to follow their agendas. George W. Bush uses the words terrorist/terrorism in almost every one of his speeches but has never actually defined what they mean he just uses them because he knows how much fear they will inspire.

By widely accepted idea of what terrorism is, George W. Bush and Osama Bin Laden are both terrorists.

Someone who hides behind the laws in a certain country and claims to be non-violent until the day that they get "the message" from the "Head Muslim." Upon receiving "the message," they will leave their house/mosque, grab their bomb vest, and blow innocent men, women, and children up. This is to fulfill the message that allah sent them through a half-ass spaz of a prophet (mohammed... peace NOT be upon him cuz he's a murderer.) who foamed from the mouth like a rabid animal.
Not all muslims are terrorists, but almost every terrorist is muslim.

Under the narrowly defined sense used by the US (and allies of the US that benefit from the narrow definition) it's anyone who stands up for his/her rights against hegemonic interests or the use of resources for non multinational corporate interests. For the rest of the population of this planet, the US (and allies of the US that benefit from the narrow definition given above).
So Palestinian acts of violence are terrorist acts, but taking land away from an indigenous, innocent third-party and then treating people like dogs under a brutal occupation for years is not terrorizing?

The best way for the US to stop terrorism is to stop its overwhelming participation in committing terrorist acts.

A terrorist is today's scapegoat. Just like the Communists were in the Cold War era, and the savages at the time of the colonization of the Americas.
People's view of Terrorists is no different then the view people in America had of Communism in the Cold War.

A coward. One who wishes to force his own religious, political or social views on a population by means of causing fear, distress and disruption. Terrorists do not have the means, intelligence or humanity to believe in discussion or democracy. They will not assemble an army and declare war, nor will they confront their problems face to face like men. Rather, they will perform sneaky, underhanded acts of barbarism and brutality - killing thousands of innocent men, women and children just to make a point. They will perform such manly, proud acts as tying a man up and slitting his throat on national TV, hijacking a school full of children and hiding bombs on public transport.
Terrorists have no emotion, no humanity and will even kill themselves in order to perform a successful massacre.
They are wimps and have no place (nor any desire for) a safe and civillised world.
If their God is looking down on them, surely he would not be happy and proud of what his "subjects" are doing.
Russia, Madrid, New York, and London have all been victims of terrorist scumbags.

The government's portrayal of Muslims so they can convince their people that they need constant protection. This is needed to justify making a ton of weapons and starting wars which make up a huge portion of our country's GDP and make some very rich and powerful people a more rich and powerful. This is also needed to justify invasion of privacy beyond that of any other group in the history of the world.

Also popularly used as a synonym for Muslim, or as an analogy to anyone a political party wants to rag on.
