Ah...."terrorist"....another weasel word used to frighten the citizenry....
Let's see now....what about all the "terrorists" who graduated to being "elder statesmen"....
- Martin McGuiness (IRA)
- Eamon de Valera (IRA)
- Yasser Arafat (PLO)
- Nelson Mandela
- Menachim Begin (Stern Gang)
I suppose that researching the early history of these individuals is now illegal? I suppose that suggesting that their early life activities were useful or virtuous is now a crime?
Then there's CURRENT history to consider. I'm sure that there are "freedom fighters" working today -- who are labeled "terrorists" by various governments -- people who in future years will be thought of as "elder statesmen". I suppose that supporting these people today is seen as fundamentally criminal by Sajid Javid?
Who said "The law is an ass"?
