FROM THE PETITION ITSELF: terrorism is defined as "the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims". This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations. Black Lives Matter has earned this title due to its actions in Ferguson, Baltimore, and even at a Bernie Sanders rally, as well as all over the United States and Canada. It is time for the pentagon to be consistent in its actions - and just as they rightfully declared ISIS a terror group, they must declare Black Lives Matter a terror group - on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety.
Lawyers filed a $1 billion lawsuit against Facebook Inc., alleging it allowed the Palestinian militant Hamas group to use it as a medium to carry out attacks that killed four Americans and wounded one in Israel, the West Bank and Jerusalem.
"Facebook has knowingly provided material support and resources to Hamas in the form of Facebook's online social network platform and communication services," making it liable for the violence against the five Americans, according to the lawsuit sent to Bloomberg by the office of the Israeli lawyer on the case, Nitsana Darshan-Leitner.
"Simply put, Hamas uses Facebook as a tool for engaging in terrorism," it said.

JULY 5--The Democratic Party's plan to crash this month's Republican National Convention is heavy on gimmicks and stunts meant to highlight a possible "Trumpocalypse," as well as to ridicule the presumptive GOP candidate's purported spray tan, tiny fingers, and dog whistle proclivities.
The Democratic National Committee's "Counter Convention Plan Sketch" covers 22 pages and outlines the party's activities in Cleveland, where the Republican convention begins July 18. Democratic operatives will launch their operation a week earlier, on July 11, to coincide with the opening of the RNC's summer meeting.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A 68-year-old Vietnam veteran was beaten Sunday afternoon at a Jacksonville gas station after telling a clerk of the food store that he was going to vote for Donald Trump, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Charlie Daniels said he got into a profanity-laced dispute with a man who, once they were both outside near the gas pumps, pushed Daniels, punched him in the face and kicked him several times.
The man left the scene in an older-model Chevrolet Suburban.
Rescue personnel were called to the Shell station on Edgewood Avenue between Commonwealth Avenue and Beaver Street, but Daniels refused treatment and drove himself home.
Officers said security video shows the confrontation and violence.
Daniels told News4Jax that he was in line to pay for gas and began talking about the upcoming election. The clerk, whom he knew, asked him who he planned to vote for, and Daniels said, "Trump."
