On November 6 ,2015 a cruise ship passenger was reported to have jumped overboard from Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Oasis of the Seas, white the cruise ship was near the Turks and Caicos Islands around 0100 hours.

How would you define this act? Suicide, Protest, Martyr or even an act of Terrorism?

The lawyer hired by Erik Elbaz indicated the act was in protest to illegal treatment by the cruise line.

We have drawn connections to public acts of suicide as a form of Psychological Terrorism in the CBI article: Cruise Ship Suicide Costs because of the damage a public suicide causes to survivors and witnesses. When a horrific act of this magnitude is planned out as a protest in such an exaggerated manner; could the, "protest" have transformed into something more?

Definitions of domestic terrorism According to a memo produced by the FBI's Terrorist Research and Analytical Center in 1994, domestic terrorism was defined as "the unlawful use of force or violence, committed by a group(s) of two or more individuals, against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives."

Under current United States law, set forth in the USA PATRIOT Act, acts of domestic terrorism are those which: "(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended— (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States."
