    Overly subjective.

    Could the Boston Tea Party be characterised as Economic Terrorism?

    $1.7 million of tea was destroyed and plenty of intimidation of merchants

    You are correct, just not in the way you think. Take a look at what the radicals actually say as to why they hate us:
    https://clarionproject.org/factsheet...-the-cross.pdf

    What’s important to understand here is that although some might argue that your foreign policies are the extent of what drives our hatred, this particular reason for hating you is secondary, hence the An example of the perversion the West seeks to spread reason we addressed it at the end of the above list. The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us, imprisoning us, torturing us, vilifying us, and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam.
    So as they point out in the full article is that the reason they hate us and wage war on us is because of our Western Values and freedoms. Which would you like to give up first?

    Read the full mag if you really want a look into the twilight zone:

    If that isn't enough to convince you, watch Episode 30 of Black Crows also known by its Arabic name Gharabeeb Soud in which Saudi counter-terror experts discuss what causes people to be, what the Saudis consider, radicalized.

    I say "what the Saudis consider" because you do not seem to understand that a certain level of radicalization is normal and normative in basic Islamic education even in some nations that are US allies, including Saudi Arabia. Certain radical branches of Islam were embraced by what are now ruling families to help them seize power back in the T.E. Lawrence era. The UK dismantled the Ottoman Empire and made a bunch of new pseudo kingdoms and those newly minted kings needed allies so they reached out to certain radical elements for whatever reason. Now, even though those nations have good relations with the West they still radicalize their youth and export radicalized clerics to other parts of the world as the BBC investigated in England:
    Don't rely on theory if your life is at stake.
