There's No Such Thing As Terrorism, Denmark Edition

The point that most quickly riles 9/11 deniers' feathers is the point that 9/11 deniers must believe that there is no such thing as terrorism. The mere thought is so absurd that it begs contrition - until deniers realize that, unfortunately for them, the point must be true. To them, there is no such thing as valid, organic home-brewed extremism. Everything is at the very least a foment of U.S. aggression, and in most cases, actively supported by America (and/or Israel). Can you find a headline-making terrorist attack that has not received such treatment by 9/11 deniers?

Today a court in Denmark sentenced the man who attacked cartoonist Kurt Westergaard to nine years. The attacker broke into his house with an axe, on the morning of New Years' Day, with the intent to kill him (the attacker claimed it was "just to scare him" - bullshit).

9/11 deniers, the ball is now in your court: What immediate policy ends did this attack serve? Cui bono? How many "Zionists" had the man met with prior? Who was his "handler" on the way to the attack? Every terrorist attack is based on the ulterior motives of rich white men, right? Come on kids, let's hear it.
