BBC News considers al-Qaeda a ‘militant network’

In Palestinians 'in al-Qaeda plot', one can read the following:
It is the first time Israel has formally charged Palestinians with membership of the militant network.
The substitution of “terrorist group” for “militant network” is bad enough, but not referring to the group as an Islamist one is worse still (for al-Qaeda’s ultimate goal is to re-establish the Caliphate across the Islamic world, by overthrowing secular or Western-supported regimes).
