You’re being extremely smug and self-righteous but what does it help? You’re patting your back over being morally and intellectually better, which you consider to be the same. That’s nice.

But what is a SOLUTION to the issue at hand? What would you suggest? Do you want the National Guard to patrol the mountain with tanks and give the scientists armed escorts and have them live in fear of terrorist attacks? Is that the solution to this problem? What do you suggest?

If somebody's actions will obviously lead to a net increase in the amount of ignorance in the world and without even a hint of a compensating advantage then I have absolutely no problem with labeling that action as evil; and it's nice to see someone else who isn't afraid to use that word when it's appropriate as it certainly is in the case of the destruction of the Thirty Meter Telescope.
