Can one imagine Reuters ever deploying similarly odious language to describe Arab populations within Israel? For example:Jewish settlers walk in the West Bank Jewish settlement of Maskiot in this May 18, 2009 file photo. Perched on a grassy slope on the western Jordan Valley, Maskiot overlooks Jordan from the Israeli-occupied West Bank, home to 2.5 million Palestinians who oppose the presence of settlers who have spread among them over the past 30 years.
Somehow, we don't think we'll be seeing that rhetoric anytime soon on Reuters' website.Arab settlers walk in the Israeli Arab settlement of Umm al-Fahm in this May 18, 2009 file photo. Perched on a grassy slope on a mountain ridge, Umm al-Fahm overlooks the Menashe Region from Arab-occupied Israel, home to 6 million Jews who oppose the presence of Arabs who have spread among them over the past 30 years.
