Because they're causing fear and implementing destruction to further an agenda. That's terrorism. I mean, they're hacking banks and releasing information, and they've done it before. I don't really care about website defacement and ddos attacks. That's script kiddie BS. But when you post banking information and social security numbers, we have a problem.
Your confusing Lulzsec with annonymous.
Lulzsec does it "just for the lulz and anarchy" and are much more proactive.
LulzSec does not appear to hack for financial profit. The group claimed main motivation is to have fun by causing mayhem. They did things "for the lulz" and focus on the possible comedic and entertainment value of attacking targets.
Annonymous are like a giant sloth compared to other hacking circles. Takes ages to rouse them, but when it's charging at you you will know about it.
Also, who are they causing fear to? Which more: The Israeli population or to a handful of government and military officials?
I should state again that in the eventuality that the internet is shut off completely to Israel (Gaza uses same technology to extents) then anonymous' first priority will be to get people back online with SSL keys or other means, then after that's done maybe get a Little bit of revenge on the person who cut everyone internet off. Usually by then the countries anon residents are so angry themselves they do that bit for them
