That is not the definition. Because states do that without being terrorists. Is Barak Obama a terrorist? Is George Bush terrorists? NO... And often terrorists just attack American soldiers who frighten the local population, how can they be terrorists if the local civilians are not afraid of them? BECAUSE THEY ARE MUSLIM, that is the most important part of being a terrorist. A terrorist is a muslim (or muslim-like) who does violence towards someone.

Nope, nothing about being a Muslim in there.

Look at their practice. When they look for a terrorist they look for a muslim, of course they can not write that in a law. But the definition includes being a muslim. A non-muslim violent person is either a criminal, crazy or just a politician. NOT terrorist...

Using "terrorist" on everything makes the term meaningless
