“Its not the act that is propagander, it is the way it is treated afterwards. Murdering innocent people is wrong. How come the french resistance in ww2 is thought of in a very good light, but the IRA in Eireland are dangerous terrorists.”
I cannot pretend to fully grasp your attempts at paralleling WWII German occupation of France with ongoing terrorist activities in Northern Ireland. I’m wondering, are you sympathetic to Hitler’s regime, and so find the French's subversive attempts to resist the occupation offensive? I’m really curious. Because what I’m seeing is you are comparing the US occupation in Iraq and trying to rebuild the nation as similar to Nazi Germany’s occupation of, and attempts to sublimate European nations.
“ Please do not take this as showing any support for them or their action which I think are totally wrong. But both are underground groups who's stated aim is to free their country from an occupying force, the french from the the germans, and the Irish from the English. How come one is labelled hero's and the others dangerous terrorists?”
Well, if you believe opposition to Hitler’s Nazi forces in one’s own country constitutes “terrorism,” you are free to do so. I, on the other hand, hold quite a different view.
“By mentioning apostates I did not mean the techniques that they use, I meant the way in which they are viewed. May jw's despise them, and flee from them scared because 'they are dangerous to their faith'. And yet many apostates used to feel like this but are here now. The same situation viewed from two different viewpoints giving totally different outcomes.”
Again, not getting your point. You are free to hate anyone you wish. You can have whatever “viewpoint” you want. But when you try to kill a person who is simply part of an organization, you are a terrorist. Degree has *everything* to do with terroism.
