new terms for suicide bomber

Reader comment on item: "At War with Islamic Fascists"

Submitted by Mitch B (Israel), Aug 14, 2006 at 19:44

The term suicide bomber has now entered regular usage within the media and society in general. In doing so, and in its frequency of use, it has lessened the actual truth and horror of what these people are doing.

I totally agree with the use of the term islamic fascism, because it is not a nice term such as militant or as general as terrorist.

Perhaps we should start using a new term for suicide bomber. How about a "murdering bomber" or a "murdering mohammad". Any suggestions?
