I wanted to chart only the continuous part of this history: the Tamil Tigers weren't a separate development, they were inspired by Hezbollah (their first suicide attacks were car bombs with drivers), and Hamas in turn imported suicide belts. But I wonder whether Kamikaze pilots inspired Islamic militants in any way.

I very much agree that Hezbollah was inspirational with their success; that also helped the Shi'a to Sunni cross-over mentioned in the diary. But quibbling, I contest the notion that all of Hezbollah's attacks that contributed to the kicking out of the US and later Israel, especially the attacks on the US and French barracks and the attacks on Israeli military, should be counted as terrorism.
