    “I’m angry, and will kill the next person I see whether or not they had anything to do with why I’m angry.” -Every Terrorist Ever.

    Why not just call this what it is? It’s Terrorism. Anti-LGBT terrorism that could have come from any Talib. What makes this IDF soldier any different or better than a Talib? Not a single millimeter of difference between the two.

    1. Completely right! There is no reason to use violence against anyone; especially, those that have nothing to do with another’s action.

  2. That’s an interesting view: I think the usual interpretation is that terrorism is motivated by some sort of religious or political agenda and has a specific end in mind. I don’t know if a mentally unstable person with a gun and a grudge can really be called a terrorist, unless you consider the Dunblane massacre (for example) also an act of terrorism.

    1. That’s meant in response to Friday Jones above.

    It sounds like a variation of the “gay panic” defence.
