Don't mention Islamic terrorists, says guide.

Whitehall officials have been issued with a guide on how to talk about Islamist terrorists without offending Muslims. One thing they should not do is call them Islamist terrorists but instead ministers and civil servants have been told to refer to them as "criminals". Now the language has been codified into a phrase-book issued to departments.

The guide tells civil servants not to use terms such as Islamist extremism or jihadi-fundamentalist. Instead, they should refer to violent extremism and criminal murderers or thugs to avoid any implication that there is an explicit link between Islam and terrorism.

...Dear, oh dear, our government does not want our public to understand the threat posed to our lives from Islam. Our government wants our public to forget the history of Jihad within Islam over the centuries. We cannot ignore the fact that Jihad is part of Islam and their holy sacred book the Koran. It is part of Islamic culture and we all have to deal with this fact. This is history and Muslims throughout the world indentify with Jihad in their quest against the infidels. To call Islamic terrorists by the relatively tame and bland name of criminals simply waters down your message. It is wrong to mislead the public about the threats to our society posed by Islam, we are not talking about anti-social behaviour. Islamic terrorists do not stand about street corners dropping litter, spraying graffiti and playing loud music. Islamic terrorists kill innocent people, this is not anti-social behaviour it is murder.

For our government to want us not to use the accurate term Islamic terrorist is wrong and shows that it is a denial of Jihad. It is like an alcoholic claiming they do not have a drink problem. We have a problem in this country with Islamic terrorists and the quicker we recognise and address this problem the better and safer for us all. We cannot deny that Islamic terrorists exist in our country and they should be called exactly that and not thought of as anti-social nuisances.
