"In his Aug. 24, 2003 column, Mili- tant or terrorist: Judging the news, Orlando Sentinel public editor, Man- ning Pynn addressed the"style" policy of his paper regarding the use of the terms"terrorist'and"militant'when referring to the Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Pynn explains, "The term "terror- ist" certainly expresses judgment: It imputes to the person or organiza- tion being described the motive of trying to instill fear. "Militant" seems to me much more neutral." He added, "Most of the news orga- nizations I surveyed do the same." In response to Pynn's editorial Dan Coultoff, chairman of the Jewish Fed- eration of Greater Orlando Commu- nity Relations Committee wrote the editor, (for full text and commentary by Heritage columnist David Bornstein see page 4 of this edition of the Heritage), "To refrain from call- ing obvious terrorism 'terrorism' is editorializing. Even if unintentional, such a sanitized description suggests a legitimacy as to the terrorist's cause and methods." Pynn refers to the Sentinel's deci- sion to bring the matter to its "style committee" to review the terminol- ogy. "In April the committee adopted this standard: 'Use caution when us- ing these terms [militants, terror- ists], which can show bias toward one side in a conflict. Generally, 'bombers,' 'attackers' or 'suicide bombers' are preferred terms." "Style" refers to the "rules" for writing and editing. There are a number of references By Matthew E. Berger WASHINGTON, D.C. (JTA)--Jew- ish and Arab leaders say the appoint- ment of Middle East scholar Daniel Pipes to a federal think tank -- de- spite the objections of Arab groups and some congressional Democrats -- offers a window into White House policy on Middle East issues. President Bush's Aug. 22 appoint- ment of Pipes, director of the Phila- delphia-based Middle East Forum, to the board of directors of the U.S. Institute of Peace comes after Arab American and Muslim groups waged a strong battle against his Senate confirmation. They called Pipes an "Islamaphobe" who made bigoted comments against Arabs and Mus- lims. The USIP was founded by Con- gress in 1984 to create programs and fellowships that foster peace and non- violent conflict resolution. The orga- nization frequently sponsors lectures in Washington on international con- flicts. Its board is appointed by the presi- dent and confirmed by the Senate. Jewish groups were gearing up to back Pipes in the Senate, saying they rely on his insight and scholarship on militant Islam. In the end, how- ever, no heavy lifting was required. Instead, Bush placed Pipes on the board through a recess appointment, allowing him to serve without con- firmation until the end of the con- gressional term in January 2005. DAN COUL TOFF newspapers may choose from to es- tablish consistency in writing and reporting, they include The Associ- ated Press Stylebook and Briefing on Media Law, The New York Times Manual of Style and Usage; and The Chicago Manual of Style: The Essen- tial Guide for Writers, Editors, and Publishers. A source at the Sentinel said that they use the Associated Press Style- book. The foreword of the AP Stylebook explains: "Work on this Stylebook began in mid-1975. The orders were: Make clear and simple rules, permit few exceptions to the rules, and rely heavily on the chosen dictionary as the arbiter of conflicts." News organizations decide how See "Debate" on page 18 DANIEL PIPES Jewish leaders say the move shows the White House's commitment to combating the threat radical Islam poses to the United States and its allies. Pipes had warned of the dan- ger of militant Islam long before Sept. 11, and criticized many scholars in his field who he said had become apologists for Islamic militancy. Arab leaders, however, say the ap- pointment shows that some White House officials hold the same "right wing" views on Middle East issues as Pipes. Specifically, they point to Elliott Abrams, a senior official on See "Pipes" on page 18
