they aren't terrorists, because they're fighting INVADERS. israel didn't exist for well over a couple hundred years, and poof it came into existence. it forced palestinians off of their land, and drove them into poverty.
if fighting against invaders is terrorism, then you demean the struggle for freedom against invaders.
next you'll say native americans had no right to resist white settlers...
The PLO recognizes the right of the State of Israel to exist in peace and security. The PLO accepts United Nations Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338. The PLO commits itself...to a peaceful resolution of the conflict between the two sides and declares that all outstanding issues relating to permanent status will be resolved through negotiations...the PLO renounces the use of terrorism and other acts of violence and will assume responsibility over all PLO elements and personnel in order to assure their compliance, prevent violations and discipline violators..

You gonna play this "IRA" card Chris?
Lets be straight here, nothing the IRA ever did comes even remotley close to the brutality of HAMAS's operations against the Jews...... Ive never seen the IRA send a suicide bomber into a crowded public place packed full of women and children.

If I was Bush, I would just say to Isreal, go to town and we'll clean up the leftovers. Turn that whole region into a rolling glass landscape and solve all the worlds problems in the flip of a switch.

Now they are a government, what they say or do will have repercussions for the entire palestinian people in some form or another. I would hope that this fact will eventually lead them down a more moderate path.

The Palestinians have now freely elected a terrorist 'government'.
Hamas .. who sucks all donation $$ away from educaton and
health care for it's people ... who vows to destroy Israel ....
I can't believe that the Palestinians who voted for Hamas were
unaware of the death and violence that Hamas means for them
and for everyone else in that part of the world.
This is disgusting.
And now if Hamas does anything against Israel, which it will do
because it has sworn to, then what rains down upon the heads
of the Palestinians are their own fault for putting Hamas officially

Hamas in power is just what the radical groups in Israel wanted. It gave them the perfect excuse to mow down more Palestinians refugees with tanks and m16.
