Tariq Ramadan on Suicide Bombing

I don't think it matters very much what the target was, given the nature of the cause. He has no justification for urging either kind of attack.

Correct me if I'm wrong--and I mean that, I could be wrong--but I believe that Ramadan was defending suicide attacks against military occupation units. Like it or dislike it, attacks against enemy military forces are not the same as attacks against civilians.
Nothing in the above should be read as justifying the suicide bombing in Iraq that deliberately took out a bunch of children being cared for by military personnel. There the killing of the children was clearly one goal of the attacker. Nor does the relative "legitmacy" of military targets make a given cause right.
