Recently the news is dominated with headlines about the war in Gaza.
Hamas fires rockets and abducts Israelis. The Israeli army strikes back with rockets and invasions into the Gaza strip to destroy the terror tunnels.
The death toll climbs. Truces are made then cease fires and we see the cease fires fail and truces fall apart. Each side claims the other is a terrorist organization and that the other side is acting as a terrorist organization would.
This drama seems to unfold every decade and yet the United Nations has not yet defined Terrorism. Why is that? some say that a big part of the problem the United Nations has come to as far as defining terrorism is with the members of the group. The standoff is with the Organization of Islamic Conference. The organization basically wants the UN to exclude armed militants who are trying to liberate themselves through conflict.
I wonder why terrorism is so hard to define but I do so from a position of one who has never suffered with occupation.
I wonder would I exchange my morals and definition of terrorism if I was living in an occupied state.
