Reuters adopts Arab terminology when referring to IDF

The initial Reuters story on Friday night's slaughter of a family in Itamar uses the terminology used only by Arabs and Israel haters where referring to the IDF:

Only in sites that are virulently anti-Israel is the IDF referred to as the "IOF".

And now we can add Reuters to that list.

Although they changed the text in later versions of the report to "Israeli troops" that initial phraseology shows everything you need to know about Reuters' bias.
