hamas is a political party and was democratically elected by the people.
but since fighting to overthrow a military occupation is terrorism according the msm and the west, that's what everybody believes.
coincidentally, the nazi's called the maquis french resistance terrorists too.
and the english branded the ira terrorists because they didn't want to bow to a queen that is from an entirely different country.
did hamas commit acts that are considered terrorism, probably, but i wouldn't call them a terrorist group because i'm not in hamas or know anybody
and i'm not going to believe something because wolf blitzer told me.
i would also argue that having 15 unseen drones flying 24/7 over your city, armed with flir and 100lbs hellfire missiles and not knowing if you're
going to be vaporized next is more terrifying to a person than a home made rocket that has more of a chance hitting guatemala than hitting you.
if you kill innocent people or know that you will most likely kill innocent people, then you are a terrorist. it doesn't matter if you're american,
israeli or muslim.
