"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
"An Oklahoma prosecutor announced Thursday that he plans to seek the death penalty for Alton Nolen, a man accused of beheading one women and attempting to murder a second. Nolen is a recent convert to Islam and his Facebook posts indicate sympathies for terrorists such as Osama bin Laden. That, and the similarity of his alleged crime to beheadings carried out by ISIS members, has led to speculation in conservative media that Nolen was a "jihadist."
While it's possible that Nolen's anti-American views were a motivating factor in his alleged crimes, prosecutors so far have said they think Nolen was motivated more by race than religion. The immediate trigger seems to have been anger over losing his job — his extreme, violent reaction could be a sign of mental illness.
More important, no evidence has emerged of links between Nolen and ISIS or any other militant group. Whether or not Nolen was trying to ape the ISIS beheadings, it appears that he acted alone."

I'm pretty sure it's just called murder.

To me, 'terrorism' involves intent, and perhaps a wider goal, than just the individual action itself. I think 'terror(ism)' is becoming overused much in the same way the word 'abuse' has become overused.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.

Depends on how many, 50, national news media star. One or two, murder.
What is it called when people make arguments while omitting significant pieces of information? Dishonesty
I dont know if what the guy did in oklahoma is terrorism, but its quite possible thats what he meant it to be
Speaking of significant omissions, he did it with a work knife, at work, having just been fired, to a supervisor. Workplace violence, going postal, murder. Call it what you will, but no matter how much you might want it to be so, screaming terrorism doesn't make it so.

What if he says he is doing it for allah or because she is an infidel etc
