EU Solves "Terrorism" Problem

From Little Green Footballs

The European Union has solved Europe’s problem with Islamic terrorism and jihad.

By banning the words.

The European Union has drawn up
guidelines advising government spokesmen to refrain from linking Islam
and terrorism in their statements.

Brussels officials have confirmed the existence of a classified
handbook which offers “non-offensive” phrases to use when announcing
anti-terrorist operations or dealing with terrorist attacks.

Banned terms are said to include “jihad”, “Islamic” or “fundamentalist”.

The word “jihad” is to be avoided altogether, according to some
sources, because for Muslims the word can mean a personal struggle to
live a moral life.

One alternative, suggested publicly last year, is for the term
“Islamic terrorism” to be replaced by “terrorists who abusively invoke

An EU official said that the secret guidebook, or, “common lexicon”,
is aimed at preventing the distortion of the Muslim faith and the
alienation of Muslims in Europe.
