6 thoughts on “Why is Hamas considered a terrorist organization?

  1. The *obvious* and simple answer is, of course: because Israel says so, and Israel is the boss. It is terrorist because of its terrorist attacks — on Israel. Anything that harms and threatens Israel is terrorist in nature and must be declared so by any “civilized” nation, as goes the wisdom of Pam Geller. But God forbid Israel ever be considered terrorist, too, despite all its crimes against Palestine. It doesn’t matter why Hamas exists or what led to its emergence, but so long as it exists, Israel (and its allies) will continue claiming that they are merely reacting to Hamas – which furthers their control over Palestinian civilians and over Palestine – and they’ll also maintain, “But we’re defending ourselves against Hamas!” when Hamas claims self-defense, too.

    The question of who can be considered a legitimate resistant power, who has the right and authority and legitimacy to partake in “terrorist” activities, who has the right to exist, who has the right to defend themselves is one that only the U.S. believes it has the authority to answer, and that depends on the U.S.’s relationship with that power in question. If the U.S. were to support Palestine, Israel would be considered a terrorist state *even if* Israel weren’t doing anything wrong or had legitimate reasons for committing violence against others in an attempt to protect itself.

    But ya, to answer your question: “cuz Israel <3"

  4. Because Israel says so, because they caused Israel to attack UN schools and children and because Israel simply had no other choice than to kill 3 children playing at a beach, because Hamas. Don’t you know that everyone is against Israel already? Even actual family of Holocaust victims are now saying that Israel is abusing their history for selfish gain, because Hamas. Simple as that. Criticism on Israel = terrorism
