On Harry's Place the other day, Martin Adamson commented this;
"How many would agree with, one person's rapist is another person's seducer"?
The slogan he is trying to parody, "one person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter", is not saying that terrorism is ok, it is just showing how there is usually a direct injustice linked to the terrorist's actions. The two slogans are not comparable because there is no direct injustice behind a rapist's actions. Obviously all terrorism is wrong, as are all rapes, nobody in their right mind is saying anything different.
We need to separate the terrorist's actions from the cause they are fighting for. The Left are only pointing out that the cause is just, not the terrorist's actions!
A slogan to illustrate the point the Left are making would be;
"The Western government's condemnation of terrorism, is a bit like the Yorkshire Ripper criticising Fred West". They are right to condemn it but shouldn't they also condemn their own actions.
The same people who campaigned for homeowners to be able to kill burglars are now condemning terrorists, now that is irony, if only they would see it!
