Hat tip Creeping Sharia
The appropriately named Carlos van Meek, editor of Al Jazeera English, has sent out a memo cautioning his writers not to use words like "terrorist", "extremist", "militant", or "jihad" when writing about militant, extremist terrorists when they are on their mission of jihad.
"One person’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighter."
ISIS Freedom fighters
Boko Haram freedom fighters with captive soldiers
Boston freedom fighters
Freedom fighter air force
At any rate, I commend Mr van Meek for sending out the memo in English so all of Al Jazeera's Western writers will adhere to the new policy.
