Backspin - Scales of Militancy For The Independent

Is there a sliding scale of terrorism? Are some terrorists more extreme than others? The Independent, in its apparent desperation to avoid using the “t” word, refers to Israeli targeting of members of the global jihad movement:

The strike killed Ghaleb Armiilat and seriously wounded Mohammed Rashdan, who was a member of the Tawhid and Jihad organisation, an ultra-militant group that the army said had played a “central role” in Monday’s border attack.

So while Hamas is merely a “militant” group, any Al-Qaeda-style operatives are “ultra-militants”.

What next? “Moderate militants”?
