It was quite common in many Middle Eastern media outlets to hail those blowing themselves up as heroes of liberation. A suicide bomber who entered an Israel restaurant and killed innocent folk was viewed as a martyr. A suicide bomber who blew up his car in Baghdad and killed dozens of innocent Muslims was simply giving all he could in the cause of getting rid of evil folk. During the past few weeks, suicide bombers began operating in Syria. A bomber blew up his car in a military compound killing seven and wounding over a hundred.
Suicide bombing invariably results in death of the innocent. Today, your enemy was an Israel Jew, tomorrow your enemy is a Muslim. Murder of the innocent is murder regardless of how it is explained away. Assad murders the innocent with weapons of war, murdering supporters of Assad only means innocent people who are in the wrong place at the wrong time will die.
