Firstly, to support your claim, i would like to see evidence that "the media have twisted this to look like an innocent act of mental illness and putting the blame on the airline", otherwise this argument is just a hasty generalisation. There is no evidence for a political aim and thus by the definition from google below, this is not an act of terrorism:
"the unofficial or unauthorized use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims." Secondly you have no evidence quoted here to suggest that "instead of if this was the be a Muslim where the whole religion would be blamed", which i assumed to read "... instead if this was an act done by a Muslim, the whole religion would be blamed", is true. Therefore I continued with the same argument that this is not an act of terrorism as there has been no political aim found.
The mirror described the man as Yesterday and hinted it blamed the airline for not realising the man was ill. But the fact, I, a general member of public thinks this could be an act of terrorism shows otherwise.. Although it may not be by strict definition, loosely defined it is very much the same - when comparing the similar incident carried out by Muslims,however these encode were explained to be acts of terrorists and its heavily advertised in papers that they're Muslim.. There have been incidents in the past where a Muslim has killed innocent people and its has been called terrorism, however just because this guy is white and American and doctor notes were found in his flat, he's not at all a terrorist.. Whether there's politics involved or not, we as the public will never know, he stilled killed a quantity of innocent for his own gain and bought terror to many globally I'm sure.bthe event has personally effected me as a regular travellerl, the fact we can no longer feel safe on flights in any way at all... Terrorists, faulty systems and now the ' mentally ill'
