    Planes are out so they'll use cars.

    SFGate

    It appears to be another idiot run amock. Until you look at the larger picture.

    Why aren't there armed gas marshalls stationed at random refueling points?

    I saw the story earlier. He's not a terrorist. He's a nut with a history of mental illness. Some crazy white woman drove her car into a grocery store a few blocks from here a month ago, I guess she's a terorist too.

    Are these news worthy because they are connected, or because the names are arabic.

    With the amount of crime daily, unless you get 33% arabics targeting non-arabics it sounds like business as usual.

    Unless they left notes, or claimed to have political motivations.

    Naveed Haq shooting women at the Jewish Federation

    though I will give you that one, targeting a Jewish place, and a arabic name, sounds like a political motivation

    Pre 2001, how many Arabs drove into groups of people or shot at American, in America?

    Go ahead and tell us. I'm guessing a similar number. Although, I'd put money down that there's been a lot more violence against arabs.

    I live in New Jersey. Large SUVs creating huge swaths of destruction aren't exactly news.

    Probably about the same, It is just news now.

    Before you start looking at arabs, look at crime stats and find out which group is shooting the most people.

    Can't. That's racism.

    exactly

    when or if these people are connected to a political or religious extrimist group, with an agenda of terror, then you can make claims of terrorism having a new face, until then it's just racism.

    Considering the current climate, intentionally targeting folks with murder on the brain isn't terrorism?

    Yes, considering the fear mongering I suppose even the crazy white woman I mentioned is a terrorist.

    no it's murder

    when it's murder on the brain for a political or religious cause, then maybe it starts being terrorism.

    Arabs...Muslims...targeting American civilians...how bold does the line need to be?

    The terrorists in at least one of the Die Hards were just after money.

    then they where robbers, the word terrorism is bandied around way to much.

    even a terrorist commiting a simple murder isn't using terrorism, terrorism is using death and destruction to create terror.

    What about crazy white women targeting American civilians?

    WAY too much. I heard the other day you're more likely to get killed by your bathtub than a terrorist. Oh, or a vending machine falling on you.

    Yet we let them take away our rights, spend all our tax dollars, and convince us with their fear mongering to act like racists and conduct religious persecution.

    nothing like a false or exagerated enemy to stabilize a goverment.

    and that goes for all countries and the UN, a spectre of fear is great if you are in politics
