LEVANT: Don’t call it a war — it’s terror

For a week, the terrorist group Hamas that controls the Gaza Strip between Israel and Egypt has waged a war against Israeli civilians.

Being terrorists, it’s not really a war they’re waging – that implies attacking another country’s soldiers and generally following military customs. Hamas prefers a coward’s violence – lobbing rockets over the border at Israel, randomly. That’s their purpose – to kill civilians and cause terror. That’s why they’re called terrorists.
