Yes, it is when you're suggesting they're interchangable things. That the founding fathers are no different than Hamas.Just because they did not do the exact same thing in different time periods does not mean that you cannot draw any comparison.
Furthermore, just because there's similarities does not necessarily mean the comparison is apt. As I said, look at the "Obama is Hilter" things. There are definitely, legitimate, comparisons between the two. However, the comparison is not apt when you look at a far larger picture of it and realize that those similarities exist over a number of individuals ranging from benevolent to pure evil. The attempt to insult and degrade the Founders and to lift up the terrorists is no different than these Obama and Hitler comparisons. It is an attempt to link something that causes one emotional response to another thing in hopes of that emotional reponse to rub off. In the case of Obama and Hitler, trying to get the hatred for Hitler due to WWII and his treatment of the Jews onto Obama by comparing some of their domestic policies. In this case its attempting to humanize Hamas or insult the founders, hopefully befuddling his opposition rather than actually trying to debate them, by suggesting that because they treated prisoners in odd ways (And seriously, slow public beheading > tar and feather) they're no different than hamas.
Hey, you breath air. You eat food. You probably have had feelings for a woman before. You may've looked at art before and appreciated it. Well, I guess you're just like Hitler. Don't get upset, I'm just making a comparison.
Similar could be said previously regarding different groups and civilizations engaged in war. Unusual tactics does not alone a terrorist make.The tactics employed by the American forces were sometimes underhanded and not the acceptable means at the time.
I bolded something for you.They would snipe soldiers, harass them while they were on march, use guerilla tactics and these were almost "terrorist-like".
"Terrorist-Like" is not being the same as terrorists to the point that one can equate the Founding Fathers to Hamas.
