Hague - the British Foreign Secretary says about the Moroccan bomb that - "All acts of terrorism are utterly reprehensible."
The Brit Prime Minister says about 'rebels' in Libya "Britain has not ruled out arming rebels in Libya"
Selective terrorism ?
No not at all. Al Queda only seek to kill and destabilise, hence the bomb in Morocco. The rebels in Libya are fighting to be free from 41 years of oppresive government. They are not planting bombs in cafes. There is an enormous gulf between the two.
Ask youself, is arming the rebels by UK gov any different from NATO airstrikes where the USA was involved? No.
Let's not forget too the number of 'rebels' the US government have supported against Latin American governments since WW2. How many innocent people have been caught up in civil wars initiated by the CIA in what they like to call 'black ops'? Bay of Pigs anyone?
And lets not forget the current 'rioters' in Bristol UK, maybe some foreign power should choose to call these people 'rebels being brutally supressed by armed force' and send arms - as that is apparently ok in world terms.
Do you even know what they are rioting about?
UK police are unique in the World in that they do not routinely carry fire arms. Only a very small number of specially trained officers are permitted to be armed. Riot police do not carry fire arms.
Nobody in the UK is brutally suppressed. This is not China or some Islamic state. Your comparison is invalid and simply shows ignorance.

Al-Qaeda (Al-Kaida) is considered as a terrorist organization by US and Western nations. But other ruthless terrorist organizations in small poor countries are considered as "rebels" by them. Why?
