Define a terrorist. info
I have been in the company of many international terrorists. ETA (Basques); IRA, UVF, Arab and various east European murderers. Most of them were psychopathic killers, others were quite well educated, were fluent in various other languages and firmly believed in their cause.
However, there are those who hide, feed and help terrorists and we generally call them sympathisers. Maybe they were threatened with torture into helping terrorists; depending on location... probably not.
I realise that prisoners are not the ideal cross section of the community to draw opinions from, but from my cell window in Malaga prison, I felt sick as I watched hundreds of Arabs in the prison yard dancing with joy as the Twin Towers came down on that dreadful day. Should we call them terrorist sympathisers?
I am concerned about the number of people I see entering my country who look just like the ones who danced with joy.
I know they are not terrorists, but I also know that in their eyes I am the infidel because I am British.
