Who are the terrorists here?

Suppose the Israelis were Muslims and the Palestinians Jews?

Would the world then think it acceptable to kill over 1,000 Jews because two Muslim civilians were killed by rockets fired by Jews? Would Jewish organisations all over the world raise funds for Israel and lobby for it? Would they approve of Israel stealing Jewish land and confining Jews to the Gaza ghetto where they would be blockaded and live in poverty and squalor?

Why is it never called terrorism when Palestinians are slaughtered?
