"Clashes"? Or murder?

More peaceful Palestinian protesters have been shot and killed by Israeli forces in the Golan Heights. MSNBC actually reported on the deaths this morning, to my surprise (after leading their news with some "bounce houses" being blown by the wind, the all-important Casey Anthony murder trial, and other items of similar earth-shattering significance), but referred to the deaths as having occurred in "clashes" at the border.

No, MSNBC, firing on peaceful protesters does not amount to "clashes." It amounts to murder.

Update: CNN also reports on "clashes," although their coverage does not include even an allegation that Palestinians were so much as throwing stones.
