Same like when Al qaeda members behead or bomb innocent people these are acts of terror.

Hizbollah is a resistance that is fighting on the occupied lands of Lebanon.

The truth must be said regardless of our feelings , not because you support Israel you call others terrorists.

You are calling me a terrorist because I am telling the other side of the story for every one to have a clearer picture.

I think you should redefine the meaning of terrorist
Sorry Shebl, check your definitions.

terrorismnarco-terrorism

Main Entry: ter·ror·ism
Pronunciation: 'ter-&r-"i-z&m
Function: noun
: the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion
- ter·ror·ist /-&r-ist/ adjective or noun
- ter·ror·is·tic /"ter-&r-'is-tik/ adjective

The former two examples you cite lack the key component of coersion; particularly that of the political genre.....


The latter two examples carried with them demands with brutal slaughter as the leverage device.

Again, we're getting caught up in semantics, such as the use of the word "terrorist" to turn people into bogeymen. In terms of semantics, I choose to let terrorists define themselves. If you need the term to further your argument, perhaps the argument is weak.

A discussion without established definitions is unstructured. One may as well heard cats.

If you read what I wrote and still missed the point then we cannot have a reasoned discussion.

I suggest that the use of the word to describe those engaged in any type of open warfare is superfluous, unless the individuals or group so described uses the term to describe themselves.

It's ok for one side to hide in civilian areas and fire
rockets of 30-60 mile radius into the air not knowing what its going to hit within that radius.

But not ok for the other side to us a guided rocket to take out the side hiding in the civilians dwelling?
