It’s Now Islamophobic to Use the Word ‘Jihadis’
Should make bankrolling 'moderate rebels' that much easier in the future
The police are considering dropping the terms ‘Islamist terrorism’ and ‘jihadis’ when describing attacks committed by, er, Islamist terrorists or jihadists, reports The Times this morning.
The police are looking at dropping the terms “Islamist terrorism” and “jihadis” when describing attacks by those who claim Islam as their motive.
Proposed alternatives include “faith-claimed terrorism” https://t.co/22jA17Teyo

Apparently, these words are problematic because they can stir up ‘Islamophobia’. The National Association of Muslim Police asked for a change in terminology because, it says, those terms currently used ‘do not help community relations and public confidence’.
Some of the alternatives suggested are nothing short of hilarious. ‘Faith-claimed terrorism’ and ‘adherents of Osama bin Laden’s ideology’ are among them. But the most amusing is probably ‘terrorists abusing religious motivations’. Catchy.
But this is deadly serious. Increasingly, we are asked to pretend that Islamist terror is not Islamist terror. In turn, any discussion about whether Islamist extremism might have something to do with the religion of Islam itself is chilled.
Despite the fact that ‘Islamist extremism’ is a term used by counter-terror experts, the National Association of Muslim Police want the police to abandon any terms ‘which have a direct link to Islam’.
But what exactly motivates these attacks if not a radical, violent, medieval form of Islam? It may not be ‘good’ Islam, and Islamist terrorists may not be ‘good’ Muslims. But they are Muslims nonetheless.
Imagine the outcry if someone argued that we should not call the Crusaders Christians. Picture the chattering-class outrage if we were to say right-wing terrorists are not actually right-wing.
We should react with consistency, then, to the absurd idea that Islamist murderers are not Islamists.
“….what exactly motivates these attacks if not a radical, violent, medieval form of Islam?”
How about deliberately created terrorist groups armed, trained, paid, supported, and used as proxies by Amerikastan?
Actually, radical Islam isn’t medieval, it’s thoroughly modern. It didn’t exist as such before 1744 when the Wahhabi creed was first invented, and just about all Islamic radicalism today stretches back to philosophies propounded no earlier than the 1960s and 70s.
At what point does this site stop pretending to be anti-Empire? It’s already declared Bolsonaro a hero, it’s repeating neocon babble about Islam, and all that’s left is to openly endorse the Amerikastani Empire.
Faith Claimed Moderate Rebel Colin wouldn’t be much of a moniker. Would get one laughed out of any self respecting headchopper organisation, probably.
in the anglosphere, especially the USA stupidity is now a virtue—-demonstrated by Pierce in his ‘Idiocracy’
I’m looking forward to the time that Zionist will be a synonym for terrorist.
We got already “faith-claimed-“journalsm”” in the opinion-multiplication-machines, called “media”.
Yep, just give me the power over the money (FED,Dec.23rd,1913 and over the media – and I will tell the world what to do).
“Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.” Mayer Amschel Rothschild
Your use of quotation marks is very confusing.
I think this is a great idea. Israel and the Jtribe have pushed for open borders, funded the invasion and openly attacked any and all criticism of destroying Western culture, ie whites. Also ISIS is really Israeli Secret Intelegence Service and al-Q was cia and mossad, so let us label the terrorist as the Jewish Funded Terror Group (fill in the blank)
ISIS is an invention of MICIMATT.
Why would you care seeing how you support the terrorists in Portland now. Used to be a great website. Not anymore!
Supporting the United States Department of State is supporting its worldwide terrorism.
