Militants, Still?

Under this headline:

Anticipating Hamas Victory, Palestinian Premier Resigns

the New York Times carries this in an AP report:-

A Hamas-only government, without Fatah as a moderating force, is sure to throw Mideast peacemaking into turmoil. The Islamic militants, who carried out dozens of suicide bombings and seek Israel's destruction, have said they oppose peace talks and will not disarm.

Suicide bombings, opposition to peace talks, refusal to disarm and the seeking of the destruction of a state are all elements of a terror group.

Is it not reasonable that the newspaper employ the proper and correct term of nomenclature?

Cheer up! Once they get in they'll be able to say the Arabic equivalent of
"מה שרואים מפה לא רואים משם"
or doesn't it work that way by them?
