    In a lot of instances, I would tend to agree with that.

    Islam was always just as much political philosophy, as it was religion, since it's founding. Which is probably why there is such resistence to secularism in the Islamic world (though the pan-arabs likely didn't help)

    An act of terrorism would be more appropriate. His actions were not much different from a suicide bomber other than the fact he didn't die as well (yet)...

    There is some evidence that might be the case, but legally, there are not enough solid facts to prove that as I understand it.

    I can agree with that statement.

    Then show how it fits under the definition in US law.

    So just to be sure. Every abortion clinic bombing isn't something you would label terrorism as your argue against those who call it such until a clear motive of hoping to coerce social or political change is found and proven? Simple religious or moral disdain for it would make it not terrorism, right?

    I would consider that terrorism too. It's definitely trying to make a "social" and even a religious type of statement. Is it politically motivated though?

    The Intelligence Community is guided by the definition of terrorism contained in Title 22 of the US Code, Section 2656f(d):

    The term "terrorism" means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents.
