"the land was run by a bunch of terrorists known as the Haganah and the Stern Gang." The role of the Haganah was to guard the Jewish Kibbutzim and farms, to warn the residents of Arab attacks, and to repel the attackers. Following the Arab Riots in Palestine of 1929 that left 133 Jews dead and led to the ethnic cleansing of all Jews from the city of Hebron, the Haganah's role changed dramatically.In 1937 the more right wing elements split off from haganah(irgun). During the Great Uprising 1936-1939, The Haganah participated actively to protect British interests and to quell Arab insurgence. Although the British administration didn't officially recognize the Haganah, the British Security Forces cooperated with it by forming the Jewish Settlement Police. So you are basically incorrect to call Haganah a terrorist organization. It never targeted civilians, unlike the the more radical Stern Gang. Also the Haganah became the IDF and the Irgun were outlawed and had to accept the authority of the IDF and were absorbed into the IDF. This is exactly what is now being asked of Hamas. Give up its arms and accept the authority of the PA in all matters security. Lets see if they follow the Israeli example or simply take the more likely option of maintaining separate and conflicting armed militias so ensuring more bloodshed on both sides of the line.
