Militants and terrorism

Hamas, which recently declared an end to an unofficial truce with Israel, said the operation was a response to recent deaths of civilians and the targeted killings of two militant leaders.

"This was a very serious Hamas terrorist attack," said Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in a media interview.
Wheher or not one thinks Israel is justified in targeting so-called palestinian militants, no-one can justify the killing of innocent people especially citizens of another country. Palestine now has an elected government, formed by Hamas. If a Hamas attack in retaliation for the killing of civilians and 'militants' is terrorism, what then was the killing by the Israeli army (militants?) of a palestinian family picknicking on a beach?
