How about using terrorism to stop nazis from killing jews? Is it not acceptable to advocate for that? Terrorism generally involves getting someone to do something by hurting someone else, so if you were going to kill some poor sods who had nothing to do with the killing of Jews, then, sure. It's not. If you wanted to kill the Nazis, I wouldn't call that terrorism. The destruction of property? Good point. I don't know. Should PETA be able to destroy labs? Should Greenpeace be able to sabotage pipeline construction equipment or spike trees. Should anarchists be free to call for the smashing of all Starbucks windows? It's easy enough to find an extreme example where everyone will agree, but what about when everyone doesn't?
