It is unfortunate enough that terrorist groups are consistently referred to as “militants” in many media outlets. Patrick Martin’s description of Hamas as a “resistance movement” in his most recent article for Canada’s Globe and Mail is entirely inappropriate and bestows a legitimacy on the actions of an organization recognized by Canada (and others) as a terrorist group.
Equally disappointing is the Globe and Mail’s lack of response when HonestReporting both tweeted and complained directly via email.
.@globeandmail Hamas is not a "Palestinian resistance movement," it is a terrorist organization, recognized as such by Canada. Pls correct.

You can add your voice – send an email to the Globe and Mail – [email protected] – and call for this appalling description of Hamas to be corrected.
