Ha'aretz writes of the "Hamas militants" and "Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade militia."

"Militants"? "Militia"? Hamas has claimed--not merely "accepted"--responsibility for most of the last several terror attacks. Do they not rate the epithet, "terrorists"?

The Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade--how does Ha'aretz think their "martyrdom" comes about? Is it not by attacks on non-combatants for the purpose of influencing their government? Is there any other definition of "terror"?

This is a piece worthy of the Arab News, or the BBC. Fooey.
