Winning the language war?

Per Egyptian blogger Ayman Nour, for the first time Egypt's largest paper referred to a suicide bomber in Iraq as a "terrrorist." (Previously, it had used the more neutral "bomber").

GOING THE OTHER DIRECTION?: EyeonthePost notes that the Washington Post "consistently refers to Israel as 'occupying' the West Bank and Gaza, though the only other sovereign countries to have recently held these lands, Jordan and Egypt, have disclaimed ownership. But Syria merely has a 'presence' in the otherwise sovereign state of Lebanon" (according to The Post). (Hat tip: David Bernstein at The Volokh Conspiracy).
