Palestinian journalists: Terror becoming illegitimate[Jerusalem Post]

Although Palestinian journalists said referring to a suicide bomber as a shahid [martyr] would continue, they told their Israeli counterparts at a joint conference that there has been a perceptible change in their coverage of attacks inside Israel that reflects a recognition of such acts as terrorism and illegitimate.

...A reporter from Hebron described how he now uses the term "explosive incident" to describe suicide bombings, which he said was a gradual but perceptible shift towards recognition of such acts as illegitimate.

...The conference concluded on a high note, with both sides saying they believed the conference would lead to more nuanced coverage of the conflict.


This world is officially insane. C'mon, everyone, chant with me now: Two legs good, four legs better! Two legs good, four legs better! Seriously. "Nuanced coverage." Nuanced? NUANCED? Here's my gradual but perceptible comment on this story: NUTS.

Over at Israpundit, an ongoing series of posts has been dedicated to communication between the folks of Israpundit and Georgetown University, regarding GU's hosting of a Palestinian Solidarity Movement conference. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Israpundit's crew for staying on top of this issue with such voracity and professionalism. I'd also like to take this opportunity to point out to the world that Israpundit should not even have to be approaching such a ridiculous issue, because the idea of any American university hosting the conference of a movement dedicated to murdering liberty in the name of allah is absolutely, friggin NUTS.

Hillary Clinton does it again.

Sen. Hillary Clinton drew criticism Tuesday for a Martin Luther King Jr. Day speech in which she told a mostly black audience at a Harlem church that Republican leaders have run the House "like a plantation"...

From that grand ol' resource, Wikipedia:

"The Republican Party ...was first established in 1854 by Northerners who were opposed to the spread of slavery..."

And they're still seriously considering this woman as a 2008 Presidential nominee?
