Wonder what you make of this?
The Prime Minister said the attack that killed six Britons should be “condemned utterly” after a Conservative MP expressed “surprise and disappointment” at the broadcaster’s reporting. The BBC, which has strict guidelines for reporters on the terms they should adopt, described the attackers as “militants” 12 times in one report on its website. However, in the same report, the only use of the term “terrorists” occurred in a quotation from remarks by the Algerian prime minister.
Of course the BBC, like other leftist institutions such as the UN, struggles with the word terrorism. The vile Jihad scum that terrorised those poor people at the BP gas plant in Algeria before killing them are “militants” because that is the BBC’s idea of not being “judgemental.” But by definition those who set out to kidnap, take hostage and threaten innocents with death ARE terrorists Here’s the definition of a terrorist;
“One that engages in acts or an act of terrorism”
Isn’t Jihad the very definition of terrorism? If it isn’t terrorism, what IS it? What are “militants”?
“Having a combative character; aggressive, especially in the service of a cause”
