British Prime Minister Bans Use of 'Muslim' in Connection With Terrorism (Then who's the enemy?)
Fox News ^ | 7/4/2007 | Fox news

Posted on 07/04/2007 11:52:34 AM PDT by tobyhill

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has instructed his ministers not to use the word "Muslim" in connection with the recent terrorist incidents in Glasgow and London, the Daily Express reports.

The phrase "War on Terror" has also been dropped in an effort to improve community relations with the nation's Islamic community, the paper reported.

Just another politician afraid of identifying the enemy by name in hopes that if they close their eyes the enemies will just go away.

Yes, just like it was those “Continental” airplanes bombing London in 1940...

My God, this is truly frightening. He is not even willing to recognize the enemy of the people he commands. I hope the Tories have someone who can defeat him before the UK is destroyed from within.

Gordon Brown is the lapdog of satan.

There is no more vile and despicable man leading a Western nation at this moment -- although a couple come close.

I pray for the immediate collapse of his government.

Not all Muslims are terrorist but almost all terrorist are Muslims. If the ones that aren’t terrorist don’t want to point out the ones that are then they are all at the very least accomplices.

Now, as a conservative (small c) Brit, I’m not Brown’s greatest fan; but the thread above this one on FR is about how he has ruled out a timetable for a withdrawal from Iraq and all the signs both now and in the past, are that British troops are there for as long as you are. The Iraq thing is very unpopular with his party and outside it BTW.

So, for a bit of balance, actions speaking louder than words anyone?

If you can’t name the enemy and ask others not to identify them then I’m not sure you can defeat them.

I think we are seeing the beginning of the end for the British Empire. Any society that is too cowardly to even NAME its enemy will never find the courage to actually fight and defeat it. All things must end-and psychological surrender is preceeding total capitulation.
If William and Harry are smart, they’ll get the hell out now. Great Britain will be Islamic, it will kneel to Allah.

We didn’t get to vote for him as PM, he was foisted on us. Shame you don’t have the same excuse for your new democrat govt! :)

Firstly, you pompous ass, our ‘society’ is not too cowardly to name our enemy as muslim, our newly appointed and unelected PM is. Talking of surrender, that seems to be the number one aim of your democrat govt, which I recall your country did elect democratically. It’s far easier to piss on your allies than realise that your country has chosen surrender and is just waiting for your lame duck president to disappear before your leaders bow to allah! Good luck with President Hillary. . . .

They could refer to them as followers of muhammad, or Islamic adherants. Both would still be truthful and accurate.

“If you can’t name the enemy and ask others not to identify them then I’m not sure you can defeat them.”

It could be avoiding defeat by the world’s (left wing as pretty much most of them are) media. Just say the words they’re happy with, but do something entirely different.

If Dodi Al Fayed had become William and Harry’s stepfather (had he married Diana before they both died) back in 1997, it would’ve been looked upon as horrible. Nowadays in the “New Britain”, Dodi would welcome as part of the royal elitist family.

Can you say “Londonstan”?

Gee, no. Is the Queens likeness on money in Ireland, Scotland, even Canada? Does Ireland have self-rule, does Scotland? Granted it is an outdated term, but I daresay the Queen considers Great Britain an Empire. I think she even bestows titles using the term- MBE, OBE.
Let’s not get off topic on the thread.
England is caving into Muslims, so is Scotland. Perhaps the IRA can mount a defense for Ireland. Otherwise, IMO, it’s ‘toodles’ to the Royal Family and the British Isles will be Islamic.

The Terrorists are those who MUST NOT BE NAMED.
Oscar Wilde went to jail(or gaol)for the love that MUST NOT BE NAMED.
Put them together and you have Ragsters who find “love” with goats.(Homely ones, at that.)
And the new Brit PM, says they MUST NOT BE NAMED.

So,....
Dear PM Brown,
You do NOT have to name those SUB HUMAN SAND SAVAGES that we are locked in the War on Terror with.
We ***ALL***know.

My, my! Hit a nerve, did I?
I’m not real happy with our ‘its not about religion’ government either, chap; but GB seems to be under more concentrated attack now and your country is much smaller than ours.It could be overrun a lot sooner- and the citizens of the US are ARMED. It wouldn’t be as easy a takeover here.

If you can’t tell, I’m worried about GB. I don’t want minarets to replace Big Ben. The ‘sensitivity’ to Muslims will be the death of BOTH our countries, because kindness and reason will not work with this enemy.

And re. Hitlery. I have no doubt that she would make handing this country over to Islam and her socialist ideals the first order of business in the White House. And if this country is STUPID enough to elect her, we will deserve what happens. Our moment of decision is yet to come, GB’s seems to be right now.

Not surprised. I myself gnash my teeth at some of the new items. And then our govt honours someone who pissed off so many muslims 18 yrs ago and still does. Which renews my faith in the current govt.

I suspect Brown’s tenure won’t last long before he’s replaced by somebody whose head is not up his/her rectum.

People are getting a good look a the pitiful democrats here- rooting against America- they’ll be out next election.

Yet I’d be a bit of concerned about today’s Tories. I realize it might not mean much, however the logo for the Conservative Party of Lady Margeret Thatcher was the Freedom Torch. Now it’s a tree. Have the Tories gone wobbly as well? Have they turned their backs on the Thatcher legacy? I hope not.
