    "...In fact, repeating the familiar use of “resistance” as a euphemism for terror attacks against civilians..."

    Trouble is they have a legal right of resistance to occupation under international law. Anyone who would NOT resist occupation would a capitulator, I hope nobody here would side with an occupying force were it threatening their neighborhood.

    hey, it just depends on the application of a Scarlet A, dude. Thankfully, there was no word for "we hate the white people who have carved out a nation for themselves while curb stomping the native population based solely on ethnicity." available for Nelson Mandela... Which, as we can see, worked out in the long run.

    Nice arrogant twist of the matter. I hope none here would support terrorism and support of the Holocaust! Too Late!

    There is a difference (though difficult to distinguish) between unlawful combatants (generally labeled terrorists) and lawful combatants (insurgent/resistance fighter though labeled terrorist too)

    Unlawful Combatants (Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, ALF, ELA, KKK, Aryan Nations and others) generally represent an political ideology or religious group. They may or may not target a specific nation or ethnic group as a result. They are not generally representative of a specific nation, region, territory, or ethnic group. They are generally autonomous cells which work as part of a larger network in order to recieve funding, munitions, and etc. They are typically less organized since their messages are generally political or religious in nature.

    Lawful Combatants (Hamas, Fatah, PA (formerly PLO), Chechen Fighters, Tibetan resisters) generally are from a group under occupation, or an ethnic group which has already been the target of de facto or de jure progroms. These groups represent an ethnicity or regional group and act in the name of their region for the purpose of regaining sovereignty or defending their ethnic group from progroms. They have legal right to resist as they are occupied or being targeted by a government. They usually have their own secret goverments that operate underground or they could be elements from governments in exile.
