i understand it.
Freedom Fighting threatens a system and/or its army with the intent of liberating some group.
Terrorism doesn't threaten governments or armies; it threatens individual citizens. Israel is at no risk as a nation when people start blowing themselves up in coffee shops; it threatens the individual citizens. Flying planes into Washington DC, the Pentagon, the World Trade Center, Camp David or anywhere else isn't going to cause the US to collapse, and it won't cripple their army. It's just gonna kill some people and make them afraid. Any group that thinks they're freedom fighting by doing such things Really needs to rethink their strategy.
Yes, wars involve blowing things up in foreign lands, but in the lands of those you are at war with.
You're still right about the ice cream though.
