BBC Terminology: Mitigating TerrorApril 30, 2013 11:06 by Simon Plosker
Contrast the above with another piece of breaking news covered by the BBC at exactly the same time:
The report states:
A Palestinian militant has been killed in an Israeli air strike on Gaza City.
Officials from Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, said the victim was Haytham al-Misshal, a member of a Salafist jihadist group.
So while the BBC is prepared to acknowledge that membership of a jihadist group is sufficient to be referred to as a “militant,” the act of actually murdering an Israeli in a politically motivated attack is not.
Take action now and demand that the BBC acknowledges terror and treat all Israeli victims of terror as human beings. Send your complaints through the BBC Complaints website – www.bbc.co.uk/complaints. For detailed instructions on how to navigate the BBC Complaints website, click here.
