Suicide bombers sin against their own conscience and the light within them that they have. They are without excuse.
Yes, ALL men have the law of God written on their hearts which they constantly and always disobey and for which God will judge them on that last day (Rom 2:14,15; 3:9-18; Gen 6:5; 8:21). Their corruption of nature is no excuse for sin is what ALL men desire most in their fallen state. They are FREE to sin. But they are not FREE to do righteousness (Jer 13:23; Matt 7:17,18; 12:33).

Yes, all this person had to do was to desire God. But that desire is not something any man has by nature. God must create that desire in a sinner, aka: regeneration, the creating of a new nature which is spiritual and inclined toward God, His truth and all that is good.
