EU Discovers Root Cause of Islamic Terror

Those genius bureaucrats in the European Union have hit upon the solution for Islamic terror: curtailing free speech. Their plan is to develop a "non-emotive lexicon for discussing radicalisation." In the words of an EU bureaucrat, "The basic idea is to avoid the use of improper words that could cause frustration among Muslims and increase the risk of radicalisation."

The EU believes that labelling acts of Islamic terrorism as, well, "Islamic terrorism" is the source of, heh, Islamic terrorism. Their solution is to call it something else. "These words [Islamic terrorism] cannot sit side by side," explains Omar Faruk, Muslim lawyer and advisor to the British government. That phrase "just creates a culture where terrorism actually is identified with Islam. That causes me a lot of stress." Presumably it does not create as much stress as being beheaded in a Muslim snuff video.

The EU's answer is to eliminate the phrase "Islamic terrorism" and substitute the phrase "terrorists who abusively invoke Islam." That way Islam is not connected to terrorism the way the terrorists think it is. Any future train bombings, beheadings, skyjackings, and the like perpetrated by terrorists can be correctly portrayed so that the fact they were perpetrated by Muslims is just some kind of a coincidence, not a doctrine of jihad laid down in the Koran and preached by Mohammed with his dying breath.

It's almost like a bad Monty Python skit.

Excellent post. I'm glad you're spreading the word on this. I don't think most Americans realize that in Europe they really don't have all the freedoms that we take for granted here.

At the rate Europe is going, I have to wonder if in 50 years the Islamists won't have enough influence that they are a danger to the US. I mean as an enemy.

Just read "While Europe Slept" which points to exactly that scenario. France could go majority Muslim in another generation, then turn into a sharia state with French nukes.
