In an unashamed capitulation to growing unrest among Europe's Muslims after the publication of a few cartoons depicting Mohammed, the EU's politically-correct bureaucrats have decided to abolish all phrases which link Islam with terrorism. There can be no hint whatever that Islam or the Qur'an justifies such acts of violence.It is reported
that the 'Non-emotive Lexicon for Discussing Radicalisation' (only the EU could come up with that!) will instead encourage such phrases as 'terrorists who abusively invoke Islam'. The problem is, it is not an abuse. Killing 'innocent' people may be frowned upon, but Muslims are simply not united on who is guilty and who innocent; indeed, many consider all who live in the Western world to be guilty by virtue of being led by 'the Great Satan' the United States of America, Zacarias Moussaoui simply being one.
Those who die for their belief are inspired by the Qur'an to do so, and they are following Mohammed's example. Make no mistake about it: Mohammed was a terrorist. The Qur'an is full of paradoxes and conflicting teachings, so it is perfectly possible to justify destroying those you think should die. Consider:
"Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, (which is Islam that abolishes all other religions ) of the people of the Book, (meaning the Jews and the Christians ) until they pay the Jizya (the tax imposed upon them) with willing submission and feel themselves subdued. (with humiliation and submission to the government of Islam.)" Sura 9:29.
The order to kill Christians and Jews is in that verse. And Muslims are also encouraged to kill pagans:
"When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful." Sura 9:5
Forgiving and merciful? Tell that to Abdul Rahman - the Afghan ex-Muslim who converted to Christianity and faced execution for doing so. The EU is intent on spreading a lie - that 'Islam' means 'peace'. It does not. It means 'submission' - absolute, total, and unequivocal. Anything less makes you an 'idolater', and therefore 'guilty'. Boris Johnson MP has called Islam 'the most viciously sectarian of all religions'
- so why is Brussels intent on stopping people from saying so?
