    I really don't see how a suicide bomber blowing themselves up in a civilian setting can be seen as anything other than a terrorist.

    Hypothetical:

    The USA is invaded by the USSR in 1985. The USSR manages to capture some of the west coast, but the war is still raging on. Are Americans who kill collaborators terrorists?

    Just to be straight, are we talking about the bombing kind of terrrorist or someone putting a penis on tv for 1 seconds terrorist?

    The group this guy runs with will see him as fulfilling his duty to his religion. He is fighting for the freedom of his brothers, friends, and neighbors. Thus, a freedom fighter.
