Any us of political violence to achieve political gains through spreading fear among the civilian population to put pressure on its government is a terrorist. Acts that target civilians to this end is the clearset example. Many of the acts by Palestinian armed groups can fit there easily. many don't (including the attack in wich Shalit was captured!). But please look in the mirror and consider the Israeli army and other security agencies' acts: what does it mean to put pressure on the population in Gaza It means one thing: strangulation and attacks into submission, with a clear message of 'no mercy' to anyone. And why? Not security as it seems, but politics and pursuing submission. This too is a flagrant type of terrorism hidden under a viel of 'democratic state'.
