back in 1946-47, the British called the Irgun Zwai Lum 'terrorists' for their proclivity for blowing up buildings in Palestine under the British-mandate. IIRC, Menachim Begin and Ariel Sharon were both members of the Irgun Zwai Lum.

for that matter, the Americans and their Saigon puppets routinely referred to the cadres of the National Liberation Front as 'terrorists' before 1965.
