in UK Politics,War on Terror

Just days after Islamic terrorists attempted to attack London and successfully attacked Glasgow International Airport, Gordon Brown has forbidden his ministers from using word “Muslim” when describing terrorism. This move comes despite the fact that every act of international terrorism in recent years in the UK and elsewhere has been committed by Muslims. I’m sure the BBC will be gushing with pride over this bout of political correctness.

Although Brown is clearly trying to avoid straining relations with British Muslims, such efforts are futile because that battle was lost years ago. Moderate Muslims, especially in the UK, are well aware of what terrorism is and abhor it. Narrowly-tailored statements connecting radical elements of Islam to terrorism will not offend Muslims who are truly outraged that the face of their religion has been hijacked by cowardly scum. Those Muslims who do not abhor terrorism are not people one should worry about offending anyway. Covering up the nature of Islamic terrorism will do nothing to solve the problem.

Less than a week into his reign, Gordon Brown is already beginning to show that he is no Tony Blair.
