people who defend their soil are not considered terrorists in most part of the world. if hamas operates in other areas than israel and perpetrate terrorist attacks, then I will agree. Israel is at war with a territory it has invaded. no army on the other side but some resistants called members of hamas. no matter how you look at it, it is the reality. the guys are no angels but defend their soil. period. you loose civilians (and all deaths are terrible) but what choice do they have?
