Who's the bigot? I am glad that you don't dispute that the modern state of Israel was founded by terrorists. I'm glad that you don't dispute that there was no difference between the terrorist tactics employed by the Irgun and the Stern Gang and the modern "terrorists." I'm humored that you would (implicitly) compare Zionist terrorist leaders like Shamir, Begin, and Sharon, etc. to a true warrior and hero like Michael Collins. Interestingly, the word "terrorism" was first used in 1795 by British commentatros attempting to label the legitimate government of France as "terrorist" in an attempt to delegitimize the British enemy as "beyond the pale." We witness the same usage today.
