Letter: Terrorism
May 06, 2013, 05:00 AM

Editor,

In his recent letter, Scott Abramson is right to criticize the administration regarding its unwillingness to label Islamic terrorism for what it is. However, the administration is not the only problem. Why does the media refer to Palestinian terrorists as militants and not terrorists? Militancy can involve violent activity, but it may also be peaceful. Terrorism by definition is not peaceful. People who blow up crowded pizza parlors or school buses are terrorists and that’s what we should call them. Avoiding the word does not solve the problem.
