Why do people say that Hamas is a terrorist group when the Palestinian Gazans accept them as their ruler and elected government?

From this video 2 days ago we can clearly see that the Gazans love Hamas and accept Hamas as their leader so what i want to know is why people like united states consider Hamas a terrorist group? Just because Hamas declared war on Israel that does not make Hamas a terrorist organization, its a war between countries.

    It be better for Hamas to stop firing those useless rockets and defend when needed instead. Hamas should focus on improving Gaza not focus on fighting Israel. Its the smarter choice.

    There is a big difference between what is shown in media and in reality .Hamas is the representative of Palestinians, and they are correct in their position that Israel is an illegal colonial state that do not have he right to exist

  • The sad truth is that if the Palestinian Gazans didn't accept Hamas, they'd be dead.

    Do the Gazans really accept them? Do they really want them as their leaders? Who knows?

    In reality Hamas were elected just the once...and when they gained power, that was the end of Democracy...We´ve never seen a general election since....but that´s consistent with any brutal dictatorship, right?

    The two are not mutually exclusive.

    All it means is that they elected terrorists to be the government.

    "terrorist" is a term coined to politically villify muslims. The people who bombed the King David hotel and massacred the deir yassin villagers? Nope not muslims so not terrorists.

    Terrorism is a tactic. It isn't relevant how or why some group gained power...

    If they use terrorist tactics, they're terrorists.
