Odd Language #128: Rejection

Odd Language #128: Rejection

<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_State_of_Iraq_and_the_Levant>, section Countries and groups at war with ISIL has the sentence, “International rejection of ISIL as a terrorist entity and rejection of its claim to even exist have placed it in conflict with countries around the world.”

The issue: “rejection of ISIL as a terrorist entity” can mean rejection of ISIL because it is a terrorist entity or rejection of the designation of ISIL as a terrorist entity. By context, it is the former, but the latter is a possible interpretation.
