While a global jihad rages throughout the Middle East, Asia, and Africa and threatens the West, our U.S. State Department is mired in Political Correctness.
On Wednesday, the U.S. State Department endorsed a handbook by Canada’s Muslim community which calls jihad “noble” and instructs law enforcement to avoid terms like “Islamic terrorism,” Islamicism’, and ‘Islamic extremism’ in favor of more ‘accurate’ terms such as ‘al Qaeda inspired extremist.’”
The handbook was rejected by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police but we apparently like it.
The State Department’s official anti-terrorism Twitter feed, called Think Again Turn Away, appeared to endorse the controversial handbook on Twitter and linked to a positive article about it. They said they were simply sharing information.
Anyone who has any knowledge of the current situation in the world knows this is absurd and dangerous.
The handbook, titled United Against Terrorism, instructs Muslim community members not to cooperate with police while others claim jihad “is a noble concept.”
Law enforcement officials also are told to “discontinue any inappropriate information gathering techniques including (but not limited to) showing up at workplaces, intimidating newcomers, questioning individuals religiosity, and discouraging legal representation,” according to the handbook.
“Jihadi” is out also. It might embolden the jihadis and “jihad is a noble concept in Islam.”
Our counterterrorism program is so PC that we won’t be able to call the enemy by its name or the movement what it is.
The publication says the misinformation about Islam is coming from extremists and Islamophobes.
They reject the term “moderate Muslim”. We don’t refer to “moderate Jews” or “moderate Christians,” they say.
That’s because they aren’t waging global jihad and cutting off peoples’ heads.
The book also explains that there is nothing wrong with youth going overseas to fight against dictators. That is a dangerous idea if they are going to replace the dictator with ISIS.
This handbook is a transparent attempt by radicals to corrupt the truth with semantics and political correctness.
