hamas, is a totalitarian group since it does not accept to share power with any other group and muders and tortures opponents. furthermore, it is a dictatorship since it refuses to abide by the bare minimal requirements of human rights: freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of press, freedom from arbitrary arrest, freedom from summary excution. as for hamas being a terror organisation: hamas is so listed by the eu, the u.s., the un, as well as many individual countries. it is so listed because it has resorted to attacks against civilians through suicide bombings and the indiscriminate firing of qassams into civilian population centers. furthermore, and very significantly, the hamas charter has declared that its goal is the destruction of israel through jihad. a lawful resistance group does not have for goal the destruction of a legitimate sovereign state. nor does a lawful resistance group engage in the deliberate murder of civilians.
