I'm saying that the title does not reflect what he wrote.

This often occurs when editors title a piece.

However... to some extent it's true. Hamas isn't a terrorist organization operating outside of the society... they're also the elected leadership of Gaza.

Where he's wrong is that Gaza was still to some extent under occupation - and resistance efforts are not the same thing as the military actions of a sovereign enemy.
