Terrorist or freedom fighter?

Reader comment on item: Aim the War on Terror at Militant Islam

Submitted by Peter meyer viol (Belgium), May 19, 2005 at 07:42

All "terrorist" suicide attacks have in common to compel modern democracies to withdraw military forces from territory that the "terrorists" consider their homeland.Religion is often used as a tool. (R.A.Pape, pol.science University of Chicago).

I agree and think that they should not called "terrorists" but "freedomfighters"! Just as we, the Dutch, were freedomfighters when we fought the German occupier (1940-1945) with all possible means.
