I'll give you that it certainly seems Hamas is more aggressive and militant-like with their doctrine. Typical of Islamic extremist organizations.

Then again, Israel has that war-mongering neocon Netenyahu as it's PM. With his cartoon drawings of bombs and such.

At the end of the day both sides are based on religious fundamentalism and have used this fundamentalism to commit violence. They are no different from each other in this sense so to pretend like Israel has some sort of moral high ground here is just being plain dishonest.
Israel isn't a terrorist because of the reasons listed. They do not indiscriminately fire rockets into Gaza. Their logic is they are taking down Hamas munitions and leaders. And, of course, Hamas places their targets, as said before by other people not named me, as well as other reputable sources, in civilian areas...then complains and gets "mad" when Israel fires a rocket. Hamas is a tricky, sly terrorist organization.
