Stop Using the Word ‘Islam’ in Reports on Terrorism, Islamic Bloc Says
CNS News ^

Stop Using the Word ‘Islam’ in Reports on Terrorism, Islamic Bloc Says Thursday, December 04, 2008 By Patrick Goodenough, International Editor

(CNSNews.com) – If the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) had its way, media reporting on terrorist activity would exclude “any reference to Islam” – whatever the affiliation, identity or motivation of the perpetrators.

The bloc of Islamic nations, which is spearheading a drive at the United Nations to have the “defamation” of Islam outlawed, this week voiced criticism about media coverage of recent terrorist attacks.

Without citing any specific attack, the OIC’s Jeddah-based general secretariat said in a statement it had “noticed a tendency of a section of the media, to interpose the word ‘Islam’ in reporting these incidences.”

“It is frustrating to see some circles, still, maliciously trying to establish conceptual link between such evil and wicked practices and Islam, the religion that condemns, scorns and outlaws them,” it said.

The OIC described the perpetrators of such attacks as “deviant and fanatic individuals.”

“We, in the OIC, call upon all well-intentioned peoples of the world, not to give to these criminals any right to present Islam, a right that Islam itself denies them,” it said. “Those who refer to the perpetrators as acting on behalf of Islam, help them by offering them justification, anchor and premise that they don’t have or deserve.”

Certainly. Just as soon as islam isn’t the root cause for 90%+ of the world’s terrorist events.

The MSM already have. By the reporting on the attacks in India over our Thanksgiving weekend, the viewer was left to believe it was the mormons doing the killing while funding prop 8 in California.

We’ll start using “Amish” then...

Someone said that “Canadian” was a “codeword” for black,
so I can see using “Amish” for “Muslim”.

Not all Muslims are terrorists, but I’d say the vast majority of terrorism and conflicts around the world are connected to Islam. To ignore the connection is intellectually dishonest.

So you can kill in the name of Islam but not take the blame in the name of Islam.

Got it.

Denounce the passages of Islam that call for actively pursuing the death of the infidels,

and we’ll consider it.

Oh, bull crap. I don't see anyone else beheading nuns, murdering children, blowing up their own people the way you nut jobs do. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck. Your bloody finger prints are all over the globe and I have yet to see the mythical "moderate Muslim" act against such crimes of violence against non-Muslims. You, sir, are a bad joke.

Oh wait, muslims cannot be critical of other muslims.

We could refer to them as “followers of a major religion whose theology more resembles a militant death-worshiping cult, which has been involved in virtually all other similar deliberately planned acts of violence carried out worldwide against innocent victims, and it’s not Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism or worship of rocks & trees and we can’t say which religion it is but we’ll bet you can guess.”

It would take a lot of ink, but I suppose that ought to satisfy them.

Yeah, not all. As you say, only a fraction are actual terrorists.

The rest support terrorism, actively through training and arming, funding, emotional and logistical support, or merely by silent agreement with the tactics and goals of the terrorism.

Perhaps a dozen out of a billion have spoken out against it.

The only people who have a reason to chastise the use of the term “Islamic Terrorism” is the Department of Redundancy Department. The word “Terrorism” implies “Islamic” unless it is the rare case of other groups’ terrorism.

I can agree that all Arabs are not terrorists...Or even all mid-Easterners are not terrorists...But I have to say ALL muzlims are terrorists...

It's a tenant of their faith, of their religion...

If you know of some smiley, friendly muzlim, you can be sure he/she carries a religious book that demands that you be killed by THAT muzlim if you do not conform to his/her religion...

All muzlims are terrorists...

Not all Muslims are terrorists, Uh, yes they are. IF they do not actively oppose terrorists then they support them by their silence.

Islam is a criminal enterprise tenuously held together by the preponderance of ignorance and the threat of violence.
