Government renames Islamic terrorism as 'anti-Islamic activity' to woo Muslims
Ministers have adopted a new language for declarations on Islamic terrorism.
In future, fanatics will be referred to as pursuing "anti-Islamic activity".
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said that extremists were behaving contrary to their faith, rather than acting in the name of Islam.
Security officials believe that directly linking terrorism to Islam is inflammatory, and risks alienating mainstream Muslim opinion.
In other news, the Holocaust is being renamed "the Period of anti-German activity" and the Spanish Inquisition is being renamed "the Period of anti-Catholic activity." Politically correct history departments may have future recommendations for other renamings as well.
My comment, which may or may not be published on the Daily Mail's web site, was that "Jacqui Smith needs a new wardrobe to go with her new language. On with your burqa, luv. We wouldn't want you to offend any Muslims by walking around half-dressed like that."
Note also the picture of "The alleged terror attack on Glasgow Airport last summer," with two alleged men putting out the alleged fire burning where the alleged SUV had allegedly crashed into the alleged building. Allegedly.
