Israel since its inception Israel has used violence as a detterent against the occupied population. Whilst smearing the entirety of Israel may be incorrect, it exhibits all the signs of a terrorist organisation such as:
- Pro war with neighbouring countries
- killing occupied people with impunity
- Allowing settlers to rampage across occupied population with protection from its police and military.
- suppressing its own judiciary and forming policies without questions asked.
- Threatining with genocide of civilians if opposed.
it comes as no surprise that the former Irgun terrorist group was party absorved into the IDF military and the political wing formed what is now the governing party Likud party. The defense minister is also charged with terrorism.
