Ken MacLeod really rips into Thursday's terrorists. But it reads to me more like the ravings of someone insecure than actual convinced argument.

That, and really badly researched. Most of the firsts he attributes to Christian terrorists actually belong to Marxist ones (amongst which, one should note, are the Provisional wing of the Irish Republican Army.)

It would be unfair to regard the Provisional IRA as particularly Marxist; one of the reasons for their split from the Official IRA was the latter's leaning towards a Marxist analysis of the Irish problem under the leadership of Cathal Goulding.

Nonetheless, they retained as an aim the establishment of a socialist republic in Ireland. This is sufficient to qualify them as Marxist IMO.
