Because if they didnt they were not terrorists, even according to your definition.
Er, how do you work that out?

And it's not my definition, it's current UK law, which I don't think is necessarily applicable to the Palestinian Mandate! It's more an example of a reasonable contemporary definition.

Lehi and Irgun saw themselves as terrorists . . . that's good enough for me.

One of your earlier statements was 'as long as enough care was taken to avoid civilian casualties'. In the most famous attack carried by Irgun, the attack on the King David Hotel, there were many civilian casualties.
