Feds: Don't label terrorists "Muslim"....& "Rapture Ready" board goes haywire.
Advertisements [?]
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.

"There's a growing consensus that we need to move away from that language," said a former senior administration official who was involved until recently in policy debates on the issue.

Some of the loving responses follow....good gravy, talking about working themselves into a lather:

And so what do we call Muslim terrorists? Look around the world, U. S. officials, and tell us just who is inciting terror around the world? Balderdash!

Well, based on who airport security tends to screen, it is little old ladies and nursing mothers that are inciting terror

More PC , I'm sorry, Sensitive Communication: not indicative of opinions or feelings of those participating in the communicae nor individuals who might possibly be exposed to said communication.

If this political correctness goes far enough, a news event such as what happened on 9/11 will require that the commentators say something such as this: "Some "nice, but misguided" men have mistakenly decided to terminate their own lives and, unfortunately, also the lives of other innocent people, as they improperly took control of the airplane, which ended up as a tragedy for all involved.

We already see this type of thing over in Europe with the gangs of 'youths' who were all actually Muslims who set portions of cities on fire and attacked people. Europe news refused to call them Muslims.

Sheesh Will this make the muslim terrorists all happy and loving toward us now? Call them exactly what they are!

All that'll do is enable Muslims to lay better claim to the 'religion of peace' title.

this is just ridiculous!...
they are MUSLIM terrorists!!....
what is wrong with this world???
I tell it like it is!! ....why lie?

I say em how I see em...regardless of our governments opinion on the matter.

Well then....."muslim" terrorist organizations have to stop calling us Christians and Jews, right?

If we had courage we would be at war with Islam. THe first step in dealing with a problem is admitting. President Bush is in denial.

What should we call them? Widdle white fluffy bunnies?
