yea, it’s not a joke, not kidding, this is the real Uk, folks.
at a loss for words? Jaw dropped? speechless? so am I…
Terrorism by Muslim fanatics was yesterday re-named “anti-Islamic activity”
The Home Secretary said that – rather than acting in the name of Islam – they were behaving contrary to their faith.
Her words were chosen carefully to reflect new Government strategy on the language used to describe fanatics.
Security officials believe that directly linking terrorism to Islam is inflammatory, and risks alienating mainstream Muslim opinion.
In her first major speech on radicalisation, Miss Smith repeatedly used the phrase “anti-Islamic”.
One passage said: “As so many Muslims in the UK and across the world have pointed out, there is nothing Islamic about the wish to terrorise, nothing Islamic about plotting murder, pain and grief. Indeed, if anything, these actions are anti-Islamic”.
Another referred to enlisting the Muslim community against “anti-Islamic activity”.
It follows a decision taken last year to stop using the phrase ‘war on terror’, first adopted by US President Bush.
The strategy emerging across Government is to portray terrorists as nothing more than cold-blooded murderers who are not fighting for any religious cause.
Al Qaeda-inspired terrorism is instead being described by key figures as “more like a death cult”.
