Authorities Say Shooting at LAX Not Terrorism

I'm having trouble distinguishing a 'racist hate crime' committed by a Muslim from terrorism. Well, there used to be a difference but I'm not sure there is now.

ARE WE TURNING FRENCH?: [Rod Dreher] Authorities are hesitant to label the LAX attack "terrorism." Let's see: the murderer was an Egyptian-born Muslim who turned up at the counter of the Israeli national airline, heavily armed, and starts shooting. Excuse me, but why is this not terrorism? I wonder if the eight children left behind by one of the Islamofascist shooter's victims have any trouble discerning whether or not this is terrorism. By this standard, all the anti-Semitic violence of late in France, which has been carried out by Arab Muslims, is not terrorism either, but random criminal acts. Come to think of it, isn't that what the French authorities have been saying?
