Words are important. The words the media use are doubly so, and it is critical that they use the most accurate terms when covering events.
Yet while young Palestinian terrorists are referred to as “children,” the three teenage Israelis who were kidnapped and murdered are called “settlers.”
Even worse, the media refuse to refer to Hamas as a terrorist organization. If Hamas is not a terrorist organization, that word has no meaning.
