    I think you mean the real murderers and no they are not innocent.

    No, people are still responsible for their actions.  They enter the group with the desire to learn about their cause---all of the world is not brainwashed and we know what the cause is about--so they know too when they become involved.

    What a cowardly act on the part of the aggressors--not to even have the courage to look "their enemy" in the eye.  It is a cowardly, murderous act regardless of why they do it.

    Are you seriously asking this?  People need to use their heads.  Killing is wrong.

    though d brain washers are wrong....the susciders are also reponsible for their actions...they have the God given right to kill...but they did...(MAY THEY BURN ON HELL MUCH WORSE THEY DID ON EARTH)

    Normal suicides are innocent and sad, and are just people looking for a way out. Suicide bombings on the other hand kill others as well, so they are in no way innocent.

    Suicide bombers are cold blooded murderers. The hide behind a cause and target innocent civilians. They are cowards, of the worst kind, who would not stand and fight for their beliefs but instead chose to kill unarmed men, women and children without remorse. Their handlers , and many times their families,celebrate their murderous cowardice as some sort of religious pilgrimage to Heaven.
    If Heaven is full of this vermin, each with their 72 virgins as they have been promised,  then I'll take a pass....thanks but no thanks.

    A suicide bomber believes what they are doing is right so much so that they are willing to die for it. Those doing the brain washing also believe they are doing the right thing. They are all guilty in the sense that yes, they  did the crime. On the other hand, to them their victims deserved what they got and were guilty of other things. Even if they are just out and out cold blooded murderers, they would not honestly believe that what they are doing is wrong.
    There is no such thing as evil, only difference of opinion.
    We are all innocent in somebody's eyes. If only in our own.

    no one with a brain is innocent.  If you allow yourself to be brainwashed you are responsible for letting it happen.

    Every man/woman has a conscience. Their conscience  ought to tell them right from wrong. So, both are wrong, but the sender is doubly wrong, because ne is not only responsible for the death of the "enemy", but also of hie own countryman/men he sends to their certain deaths.
    All's fair in war??? I don't think so.

    Why should suicide bombers  be innocent ? They are the murderers, taking away lives of innocent people !  They are responsible for their actions.
    Why the hell they  join groups to be  brainwashed  ?
    Whatever the reason be it may, whether for the sake of so called religion or whatever, I hate them and wish they were never born.

    you can't say they are innocent because even if they are brainwashed, in the beginning they new that the group they are with is going to terrorize people. if you want to be with a group like that then you are responsible for your actions. it's like saying a junkie is innocent because they do drugs because they are addicts. they new that if they did drugs that they would become addicts, so it's their fault.

    "The devil made me do it" is not a legitimate argument. Yes, the brainwashers are also responsible. But everyone needs to do their best to step back and question the ideas that have been driven into them. Doing things because the general society or certain individuals have told you to is idiotic.

    i have asked myself the same question before, how strange! i thought i was the only one.

    anyways the way i was able to make sense of it was through my own situation when i was growing up and being told that there is a God and he made the world, so i never thought any differently (until college) because that's just what i was told throughout my life.. so

    if you were told your whole life that suicide bombing is what you should do and it's heroic.. and you didn't go to college or have people suggest that it may be wrong.. then you may believe it for a long time.

    so i think in that case.. they are innocent.. if they are young..? idk...
