By Alfred Wasike PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni has urged all nations opposed to international terrorism to contribute troops to “finish the job quickly” and defeat what he called reactionaries profaning the name of freedom fighters. He stressed the difference between freedom fighters and terrorists. Museveni made the appeal on Sunday while addressing the 56th General Assembly of the UN in New York. He said, “The actions by terrorists are misguided, criminal and must be opposed by all as a matter of principle. The coalition against terrorism should be regarded in the same way as the coalition against fascism in the 1930s and 1940s.” “I, therefore, this time, support the position of the USA as we did in the Gulf War in fighting and defeating these reactionaries profaning the name of freedom fighters. The terrorists try to polarise the world on a wrong basis: Muslims vs. Christians etc. This is unacceptable. Exploitation does not know the boundary of race or religion,” he said, attracting applause. He emphasised the difference between freedom fighters and terrorists. “In the on-going debate about terrorism I have not heard anybody bothering to define the difference between a freedom fighter and a terrorist. Mzee Nelson Mandela has been a freedom fighter until recently. Was he a terrorist? Not at all.” He said while a freedom fighter may be forced to use violence, he cannot use indiscriminate violence because only terrorists do so. Ends
