New FBI Most Wanted Terrorist An American
How many times have I heard this argument? "Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims."
It's a preposterous statement. Timothy McVeigh and the FLAN come immediately to mind. Now, so to, does the name of one Daniel Andreas San Diego whose name has been added to the FBI's Most Wanted Terrorist list. He has the dubious distinction of being the first person alleged domestic terrorist to be included.
San Diego is not someone who is bent on terror in the name of a religion. He is one of those misguided people who allegedly think the best way to protest alleged cases of animal abuse is through bombings.
The Berkeley, California computer specialist is wanted in connection with two bombings of corporate offices back in 2003. He should be fairly easy to identify if caught. Because he reportedly sports a tattoo which proclaims, "If Only Takes a Spark." Hmmmm. Wonder what that refers to.
People who turn to terror, no matter what their motivation, have a misguided sense of a higher moral authority than the rest of us. In their minds, there is justification for their actions where no justification exists.
In fact, if anything they disservice their cause. And cause some people to think that all who agree with their positions are terrorists as well.
