Glorifying Terrorism

Somebody over at the Associated Press has been watching too many westerns:

Smoke rises over buildings following an Israeli air strike on a building near Nahal Oz crossing east of Gaza City, Wednesday, April 9, 2008. Palestinian militants from the Gaza Strip burst into southern Israel on Wednesday and killed two Israeli civilians in a daring daylight raid that threatened to set off a new round of fighting.

A "daring" daylight raid?

A "daring" daylight raid that killed two Israeli civilians?

One would think that the vaunted AP Stylebook would have a paragraph or two on avoiding language that is loaded and emotional when referring to "news" events.

But then again, one would also think that the Associated Press was actually interested in reporting the news.

You can view the rest of this photo series over here. More on the terror attack here and here.
