Dear Reuters, You Must Be Kidding

No, they're not kidding.

From Jeffrey Goldberg @ The Atlantic, HT: instapundit...

Dear Reuters, You Must Be Kidding

This is from a Reuters story on the Jerusalem bombing earlier today[3/23/11]:[blockquote]Police said it was a "terrorist attack" -- Israel's term for a Palestinian strike. It was the first time Jerusalem had been hit by such a bomb since 2004.[/blockquote]Those Israelis and their crazy terms! I mean, referring to a fatal bombing of civilians as a "terrorist attack"? Who are they kidding? Everyone knows that a fatal bombing of Israeli civilians should be referred to as a "teachable moment." Or as a "venting of certain frustrations." Or as "an understandable reaction to Jewish perfidy." Or perhaps as "a very special episode of 'Cheers.'" Anything but "a terrorist attack." I suppose Reuters will mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11 by referring to the attacks as "an exercise in urban renewal."

The mind reels.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson

An Israeli term?!

It's a fricken common term for the vast majority of people on the planet not carriers of the multi-culti/diversity/pc disease, you terrorist-coddling evil Jew-hating scum-buckets!

Every year..... ::bashing::
I'm not always engulfed in scandals, but when I am, I make sure I blame others.
