    I don't really agree that they are different from a mugger only in magnitude. Motivation is relevant, and someone who is committing a crime for personal gain is qualitatively different than someone who is doing so because of (misguided) ideals. That doesn't mean we should say 'Muslims' or 'Chechens' or 'immigrants' did this, that is a separate question which I agree is an overbroad categorization. However, I don't think it is particularly useful to stick the 9/11 hijackers or Tim McVeigh in the same category as the person who stole my kid's bike a few weeks ago.
