According to the EU, European governments should now strive to shun the phrase "Islamic terrorism" for the kinder, gentler term, "terrorists who abusively invoke Islam."
WHAT?!? There is NO WAY I'm going to say something that RIDICULOUS!!!
bbb The EU is drafting a "non-emotive lexicon for discussing radicalisation" to be submitted to Tony Blair in June.
This tripe is coming primarily from Brussels, where an EU official said: "The basic idea behind it is to avoid the use of improper words that would cause frustration among Muslims and increase the risk of radicalisation."
HUH? If they're going to go around killing people over a few words (let's not forget the Mo cartoons) then I don't think it would help to be more sensitive. They want infidels dead, period.
"Jihad means something for you and me; it means something else for a Muslim," EU officials at a Berlin conference on radicalisation said. "Jihad is a perfectly positive concept of trying to fight evil within yourself."
OK, stop right there, 'cause I think I'm having a brain bleed! Webster's Online Dictionary defines jihad as (n) A holy war by Muslims against unbelievers.
When a Muslim says jihad, he is talking about killing you. Talk about pulling the wool over your own eyes. I hope Blair has the sense to rip this to little shreds and throw it in the trash, where it belongs!
