L: "Killed and murdered carry the same connotation. Dead!!" The IDF "kills" civilian bystanders when they assassinate militants from the air, and it is never reported as "murder" in the Israeli press. Precisely because the two words have different connotations. These two words are chosen for a reason, Lynn; it taints the perception of the reader in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. I can add some more examples: Israelis die in "terrorist attacks" by Palestinian militants, but Pals always die as a result of "clashes". Keep an eye out for it, Lynn, because the distinction is ALWAYS there i.e.: No Pal ever dies in "IDF attacks". Never. They are always "killed" as a result of "clashes" between the IDF and the Pals, regardless of who provoked that "clash". Yet Israelis never die from "clashes". Never. They are always "murdered" in "Palestinian attacks", regardless of who provoked that "attack".
