The victims have no problem calling them terrorists
: The BBC — which just went out of its way to call “terrorist” a bad word — reports that Arab media is (finally) seeing Iraqi “insurgents” for what they are: murderers. Meanwhile, the witnesses and victims know what they really are: terrorists.
Al Jazeera – often accused by the Americans of stirring anti-US feeling – has adopted less of an “Us and Them” approach.
The militants are no longer referred to as the “resistance” but as gunmen or suicide bombers.
Eyewitnesses are shown denouncing them as “terrorists” – condemnations that are echoed by a parade of Iraqi officials and religious authorities.
