There is a seeming double standard in identifying one act as particular to a religion, and not another caused me to do a little searching on the web, and I found many articles that did not include the religious dimension of many terrorist activities:  Irish Terror,
The Troubles , Bosnia:// Report On Massacre At Srebrenica Condemns Dutch Military ‘Errors’, Don Hill, King David Hotel Bombing(1946) , Basque Terrorism in Spain, Wikipedia has an entry on the Qibya Massacre by Israeli troops - and the Kafr Qasim Massacre by the Israel border police -  why no mention of their religion? And the Sabra and Shatila massacres which refer to the perpetrators as Maronite Christian Militias and to possible Israeli culpability.  And also an article on the Lavon Affair including the Operation Susannah bombings in Egypt by the Israeli’s.

Why Irish and not Christian Terror - although both parties are Christian (Catholic and Protestant)  - why Basque Terrorism when the Basques are solidly Catholic?  Why Israeli and not Jewish, although Israel is a Jewish State?  Why are the Tamil Tiger suicide bombers not referred to as Hindu suicide bombers?  The Tamil Tigers lead the world in the number of suicide bombings, and yet the mantra is repeated over and over that all terrorists are Muslims.  Why do Israel, the U.S., Britain, France, China, India, and Russia have nuclear bombs, but Pakistan has an “Islamic bomb”?

- CHARITABLE DONATIONS TO OVERSEAS GROUPS WITH POLITICAL WINGS - whether Hamas or the IRA or JDL.  As late as 2002 JDL had not been placed on the governments official list of terrorist organizations and its assets had not been frozen  And the Moskowitz Foundation can take American donations to finance illegal settlements in the West Bank 
Some charities like the American and Israeli Research and Friendship Foundation have been accused of using donations for political purposes and not for what they were intended    There was a unique U.S. law that grants U.S. tax exemption to donations from the United States to any Israeli institution that is exempt from Israeli taxes, the total of tax-exempt U.S. donations to Israel now approaches $1 billion annually.  Friends of Israel Defense Forces even won a case to allow for charitable tax exempt status  Gerry Adams, President of Sein Fein visits the U.S. to collect money and meet with U.S. government leaders  Although in 1996 Clinton granted him a 3 month visa to visit the U.S. with the provision that he would not raise money or visit the White House
