Not to me; the IRA are/were terrorists; plain and simple, fighting the regime is one thing, threatening F1 personnel who have nothing to do with the regime is terrorism!
since the F1 circus did go there, ( with the majority of the Bahrain people don't want them in their country ) obviously under an agreement with the fascist goverment - I wouldn't say F1 personnel have now nothing do with the regime, Bernie puts everyone in a political situation.
So I believe, they are not terrorists threatening innocents, Fia chose to make an agreement with their dictator, making anyone in F1 their enemy too. It is a war, not terrorism
