    what about

    Luis Posada Carriles?

    Here you have a man, convicted of blowing up an airplane, and yet protected by the US. Is he a freedom fighter because the plane was Cuban and he is a cuban exile or is he no better than a Hamas bomber that blows himself up in a disco?

    Which is it?
    He denied involvement in the plane incident. He is also fighting against tyranny so he is a freedom fighter. Hamas is fighting to instill tyranny.

    Regardless, that is irrelevant if they want to be free from outside influence. Don't mistake this for supporting them.

    Islam is an oppressive culture.

    What a lot of them may want they are not able to achieve because of fear. Intimidation and oppression is part of Islam.

    Islam is a religion.

    Intimidation and oppression is a part of a lot of religions to varying degrees.

    Islam is a religious-political culture. When a religion has the ability to make laws in society then it is much more than a religion.

    This could be said for other religions as well.

    If Al-Qaida or Hamas were fighting for freedom I might agree with the statement.

    They are, however, fighting for fascism, so I do not agree with the statement in its modern context.

    There are some groups that you could make an academic argument for subjective treatment but in reality pretty much no entity regards them in any legitimate or positive way.

    the Lords Resistance Army in Africa and I think increasingly the FARC in Colombia have pretty much been abandoned by any significant body of people.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Our forefathers had ideals of freedom. Islam doesn't.
    Freedom for whom?

    Islam does not fight for anyone's freedom.

    Islam fights to bring about Armageddon and a resulting global theocracy.
