Over in the United Nations forum, Farukh starts an interesting topic by asking everyone what is the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter?
Here are some of the "civilized" responses below:
Rosney: A terrorist can be a freedom fighter but his means are wrong. A freedom fighter is not necessarily a terrorist, for example Martin Luther King Jr.
A terrorist doesn't deserve freedom, he deserves punishment.
Tawfigur (on page 3): To me, a FREEDOM FIGHTER is a person who fights for his nation or people (for liberation). fighting for religion can also be freedom fighting.
A terrorist is one who is fighting for a group who are derailed from the normal track just to establish some unjust demand. a terrorist doesnot have any religious or national backing. a terrorist or terrorist group might reflect a religion or natinality. but that is for exploiting. they do not have the backing of the general people.
Marcelo (on page 4): A freedom fighter is a warrior who's target the military opressor only, a terrorist is a criminal who target women and children.
Tawfigur probably has the best response out of the entire forum, but unfortunately some members within the discussion can not see the difference between the two. Sad.
Unfortunately on page 5, the discussion gets heated with Patriot and Ahad cussing each other out while presenting their viewpoint.
