I skimmed a bit of a bio on the writer and a bit of the video. He seems to be a pretty classic example of an Islamophobe. And the video, the parts I skimmed, didn't seem to be particularly relevant to the topic.
I'm not going to watch a 45 minute lecture by a bigot to try to guess what your point is. Do you have a point to make about the topic? I'm happy to debate you, but you will have to tell me what your point is.

There are over 109 different definitions of terrorism. For example, during the french revolution there was a "reign of terror" under Robespierre. Some would describe that as "terrorism". It was being conducted by a group which viewed itself as the rightful government of a nation, not with someone hiding a bomb in a church.
There are alot of arguments about where "terrorism" started, but most of them aren't Muslims. Some say the 1st terrorists were the Sicarii jewish zealots. Some say it was the Irish Fenian Brotherhood. Others say it is the Russian Narodnaya Volya. You can find terrorism all over the world it many different cultures and religions. It is certainly not something that is unique to Islam.
The statement is false no were in the definition of terrorist does it say Muslim. There is no argument this is a fact.
a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
I thought I would provide some examples of christian terrorists since alot of people seem to think they don't exist.
- On 16 July 2001, Peter James Knight walked into an abortion clinic and murdered the security guard. He intended to tie up the 15 members of the staff and 26 patients and burn them all alive. He was overpowered by the staff before he could do so.
- Eric Rudolph set of 4 separate bomb attacks which killed 2 and injured well over a hundred. His targets were 2 abortion clinics, a lesbian bar, and an Olympic venue. His attacks on the abortion clinics and lesbian bar were because he viewed them as immoral and evil.
- Anders Behring Breivik set off a bomb and then went on a shooting spree killing at least 77 people. He did it because he believed that feminism and Islam were trying to destroy "Christian European culture". He said he was waging a Christian Crusade against multiculturalism.
- Brenton Harrison attacked 2 mosques just last month. He killed 50 people and injured 50 others. He calls himself an "ethno-nationalist" but cited Anders Behring Breivi, a christian crusader, as his inspiration.
I would also just like to point out that according to an FBI analysis of every U.S. terrorist attack between 1980 and 2005, 94% were carried out by someone who was not Muslim. The idea that all terrorists are muslim is simply wrong.
There are regular terrorist attacks by Christians in the US. This topic is just blatantly untrue.
most terrorism in the USA is right wing extremism often done by white Christians.
