ZOA: Stop Calling Terrorists ‘Militants’
News Press Release
August 20, 2014

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) today released the following statement:

 “Stop Calling Terrorists ‘Militants’  –– They’re Terrorists.

 Those who deliberately murder and maim innocents are not ‘militants,’ so stop calling them ‘militants.’ 

 “Hamas are terrorists, not militants.

 “The Taliban are terrorists, not militants.

 “Al Qaeda are terrorists, not militants.

 “ISIS are terrorists, not militants.

 “Hizballah are terrorists, not militants.

 “These groups intentionally murder innocent Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and others across the globe. They are evil and blood-thirsty, not ‘militants’ or ‘activists’ or ‘fighters’ or ‘extremists’; so call them what they are –– terrorists.

 Hamas are terrorists, not militants

 “To call them ‘militants’ greatly understates and minimizes the horror of their vile actions and may even camouflage the appropriateness and the imperative of those who fight them.

 “These organizations are on the U.S. and European Union (EU) terrorist list, not the U.S. and E.U. militant list.

 Stop Calling Terrorists ‘Militants’  –– They’re Terrorists.”
