MWL : The United Nations Conference on Racism in South Africa and inaccurate translations of some Islamic terms

The majority of the countries in attendance support a resolution equating Zionism with racism. Meanwhile, Israel and the US delegation plan to withdraw from the conference. Our second story involves a recent 60 minute TV broadcast containing inaccurate translations which is seen as an attempt to defame the religion of Islam. 60 Minutes has injected "sex-in-paradise" stereotypes in the broadcast and MPAC has objected to the translation and raised concerns over disinformation in the program. There are specific terms used in the media such as "suicide bomber", "fundamentalist Islam", "Jihad", and many others. Where is this terminology coming from and does it have any root in Islam?
