In case there was any misunderstanding about my point of view...
I don't subscribe to the terrorist acts being the fault of a religion (any religion): It is the fault of ****ed up people.
Well in A way it is. Take away religion how many people would be killed by terrorist attacks than? Throughout human history religion has the most killings tot it's name.

Stalin's purges were a form of terrorism on his own people without religious foundation.
What they were was extreme violence justified by the perpetrator's beliefs: Just as these are.

Plenty. Take the guerrillas in Latin America. They are not motivated by religion but power.

Yeah... Stalin was so bad...
that after the "democratic" intervention 1917-1920 and the complete collapse of the country
led it to victory over Hitler in 1945, nuclear parity against the United States and the first flight into space.
And Britain was so good that participated in the intervention into Russia 1917-1920,
participated in the Munich agreement with Hitler in 1938,
funded and supplied Bandera in Ukraine and the forest brothers in the Baltic States,
which killed tens thousands civilians after 1945 (upto 1957).
And So who is "terrorist"?

Most of the so-called guerrillas in Latin America weren't motivated by power, but by the continual terror and murder brought on them by government forces, and death squads. Many of these forces were mainly trained by the U.S. Army School of the Americas, which was located at Fort Benning Georgia.

Much of the guerrilla activities and terror in South America is driven by control of the drug trade and in Columbia you can add emeralds to the mix. The amount of blood spilt for emeralds is terrifying, but still nothing compared to drugs.

I don't dispute what the motivation was at first but as Kewee points out, these days it's all about controlling drug trade.

BTW, Telesur is a left leaning network with headquarters in Venezuela that was founded by the late Hugo Chavez. I'm not saying that what the video depicts is not true, just that it needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.

The suppressed Arte antisemitism documentary in historic perspective

It's an excellent documentary which shows anitsemitism, not only from Muslims and right-wing extremists, but surprisingly the left-wing supporters. Those who constantly point out the attacks of Israel on Palästina, whilst not mentioning those of Palästina, the poising of water streams and all the other bulls**t they come up with in their deluded minds. The interviewed Palestinians said that it is not in their interest that the Hamas is further supported by left-wing politicians and their NGO's, UN and EU.

What's this 'Pälestina' stuff about? Does spelling it in German somehow make them less legitimate a state?

If one spells it incorrectly, like you did, it doesn't make it a less legitimate state, but does show a lack of respect and / or knowledge.
The state is another prime example of Western powers interfering in foreign power through NGO's, UN and brainwashed people financing the terrorism of the Hamas, who are still sulky that they lost the wars to Israel, to the detriment of the local residents.
