Note to CNN:
Please know the difference between militant(as in "Israeli forces shot and killed a top Islamic militant early Saturday after he opened fire on them in the old city of Jenin..") and terrorist.
mil·i·tant : n. A fighting, warring, or aggressive person or party.
ter·ror·ist: n. One that engages in acts or an act of terrorism
ter·ror·ism n. The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.
Now, let's reword the sentence from the above mentioned story:
"Israeli forces shot and killed a top Islamic terrorist early Saturday after he opened fire on them in the old city of Jenin.."
Yes, much better. Any questions? No?
