The Target of Terror is Innocence: Public Intellectuals Parse Away Innocence

What is [terrorism] ? It’s not hard to recognize; we can safely avoid postmodernist arguments about knowledge and truth. Terrorism is the deliberate killing of innocent people, at random, in order to spread fear through a whole population and force the hand of its political leaders - Michael Walzar  Just and Unjust Wars, New York 2000  
We are all mediators, translators. Jacques Derrida

Terrorism is a pet topic for post-modernist philosophers, activists, academics and other idiots.

Parsing the bombing of a crowd of pre-teen teenagers in a Manchester concert venue, will begin on  CNN the second a cue is given to the soul less and dead-eyed  Fareed Zakaria, or the Joe Camel of  cable journalism, Christiane Amanpour.  They will trot out public intellectuals like Noam Chomsky, or the porky and indecipherable Michael Eric Dyson to baffle with the bullshit born of Foucault, Derrida, Camus and Benjamin and Madison Avenue'd up by the likes of David Axelrod and Tom Perez*.

Terrorists are people who have forsaken life, truth and a place on the planet, President Trump translated these nasty men and women for what they are -

“So many young, beautiful people living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers in life,” Trump said, speaking alongside Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem.
There,  was that so hard?  For eight years we listened to a President parsing nonsense.

Families anguish - one's child begs to go to her her/his big kid concert, right at that special time in life when one's identity has taken shape and needs to celebrate with friends in the shared joy of living through music.  Parents plan, purchase, park and patrol their children and friends through the secure venue's portals. Shortly, a bomb is detonated.  This is a nail bomb and meant to main and kill the young identities in the hall.

The bile and the blood rises as parents learn that all of their precautions are for naught. That was no "random" deliberate murder of chidren. That was a mutual exercise of terror.

Parents planned a joyful event in their child's life.

Someone else planned. Someone who will execute innocent children and later have this action be explained away by public intellectuals

That is terrorism. A mutual exercise by murdering losers and those who would justify  their actions.

* DNC Terrorism- " . . .Democrats will repudiate vile tactics that would do us harm. We reject Donald Trump’s vilification of Muslims. It violates the religious freedom that is the bedrock of our country and feeds into ISIS’ nefarious narrative. It also alienates people and countries who are crucial to defeating terrorism; the vast majority of Muslims believe in a future of peace and tolerance. We reject Donald Trump’s suggestion that our military should engage in war crimes, like torturing prisoners or murdering civilian family members of suspected terrorists. These tactics run counter to American principles, undermine our moral standing, cost innocent lives, and endanger Americans. We also firmly reject Donald Trump’s willingness to mire tens of thousands of our combat troops in another misguided ground war in the Middle East, which would only further embolden ISIS. There is nothing smart or strong about such an approach."

Mention Trump three times and ISIS Twice?  Jeepers. Tom.
