Interesting post. Have you considered he may be a Sociopath thereby negating your entire theory about him. How sure are you he is not a Sociopath as so many of these pretend politically motivated butchers are? Can you blame a brain disorder on our system, or is it in reality, simply a unfortunate medical problem as we now know it is?
I see where you are coming from, but I think you are using it to explain to much. If a person hates all Jews simply for being born Jews but pretends they only hate the Zionists how does that apply. I see people who fall into that category all the time. That is not a problem you can blame on history or society, it is either a psychological disorder or an evil person; and yes truly evil people do exist.
In this case it is even more heinous as it is likely he knew many of those there were neither Jewish or Zionists and he obviously did not care. That does in fact take him into the realm of a genuine Terrorist. In fact a sane person would abort their plans rather than risk killing an innocent person no matter who their prey was.
It is also a bit off to think we should all consider ourselves to blame for actions we play or played no part in. Even holding George Bush accountable for the actions of a Parent or Grandparent reveals that the hate is not rational unless a person knows for a fact the other family member holds the same beliefs and committed the same atrocities.
In considering President Bush's action, to be intellectually honest you would have to consider the facts independently of what his relative had done. To even think the opposite would be the same as saying Everyone related to Ted Bundy is a Psychopathic Monster.
Part of what keeps this world and even small groups at each others throats is this nonsense of lumping entire groups of people or families into one nice little package. It is so intellectually dishonest as to be the product of an irrational brain.
I could have kept this very short by saying it a different way I suppose. We are all responsible for our own actions no matter our environments. We are born knowing the difference between good and evil. When a person reaches the age of that man, he is directly responsible for his actions. I can understand an adolescent still in conflict and doing what they want when they want and to hell with society and their elders. It is partly hormonal after all. That is exactly why bad people and even Terrorists target Adolescents. I can not however justify blaming society for the actions of a very mature adult. It is incredibly disingenuous to do so.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- It is not possible for authorities to trace the rifle used in this week's shooting at the Holocaust Memorial Museum to the original purchaser, a law enforcement source said Friday.
The source, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation, said the weapon is a Winchester Model 6, .22 caliber rifle -- a type of gun manufactured between 1908 and 1928 -- long before records were kept on gun purchases.
James von Brunn, 88, has been charged with murder in the death of Johns, 39, a security officer who police say opened a museum door Wednesday for the reputed white supremacist. Law enforcement analyst talks about how this could have happened »
Von Brunn remains in critical condition at a hospital, Washington police said. He was shot by other security officers at the scene

I think it ought to be pointed out that when the pilgrims left England, they did not do so having disrupted the society they no longer wished to be a part of. They just left it. Totaly unlike terrorism , they did not leave destruction in thier wake , and thier names were not synonymous with murder death and anguish.
If they really had been terrorists, then they never would have been able to get out of England, simple reason being that the English would have strung up and gutted each and every one of them.

There is something very, very odd about all of this.
I smell a setup.
I don't think that man went there with the intent to kill anyone, not with an old pea shooter like that.
We aren't being told the real story on this.
