Norway’s Extremist

I recently read an editorial in the New York Times dated July 25th regarding the recent murders in Norway. (Click here to read)

I’m a little confused by this article. The editorialist calls Anders Behring Breivik an anti-Islamic extremist.

Why isn’t he called a terrorist? By the dictionary’s definition, Mr. Breivik “produced widespread fear by acts of violence” — did he not?

Is there a different standard here?
