Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say

The NY Times and the liberals have won. They have fought the hard fight, and they’ve won. It was only a matter of time. Mark the tombstone: May 6, 2008. Congratulations to all liberals: you’ve hijacked the national discourse, you’ve successfully manipulated the English language and you’ve proven once again- the pen is indeed mightier than the sword.

U.S. officials are being advised in internal government documents to avoid referring publicly to al Qaeda and other terrorist groups as Islamic or Muslim, and not to use terms like jihad or mujahedeen, which “unintentionally legitimize” terrorism.

Avoid labeling everything ‘Muslim.’ It reinforces the ‘U.S. vs. Islam’ framework that al Qaeda promotes,” according to “Words that Work and Words that Don’t: A Guide for Counter-Terrorism Communication,” produced last month by the center.

“You have a large percentage of the world’ s population that subscribes to this religion,” the former official said. “Unintentionally alienating them is not a judicious move.”

Alienating?

Okay class- time for a review. How many Al Qaeda members are Lutheran? How many Mujahedeen are Catholic? How many jihadists are Mennonite? Name one.

When was the last time a Jew walked into a Saudi supermarket and blew himself up destroying all human life and property within a 100 yard radius? How many Iranian children have been killed by a crazed Methodist? How many Muslim women have been raped and killed by homicidal Baptists? NPR has never reported a brutal beheading of a Christian by a Buddhist. No 16 year old Christian has ever leveled a Muslim marketplace with a bomb.

None. Ever.

Is every Muslim a terrorist? Of course not. But make no mistake: almost all terrorists ARE MUSLIM.
