Hamas No Longer "Militants"?

The Western Media has spent months dodging the word "terrorist" in conjunction to Hamas, preferring the term "militant". It now seems that they aren't even that. In an article in The Guardian about Hamas's refusal to recognise Israel they are described as "The ruling Hamas group". Even the BBC is still calling them militants. Soon we'll be calling them "peace-loving moderates"!

On closer inspection it turns out that this isn't limited to The Guardian. Fox News also says the same. In fact, the two articles are all but identical. The reason? They are both taken from Associated Press.
