Government renames Islamic terrorism as 'anti-Islamic activity' to woo Muslims

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ministers have adopted a new language for declarations on Islamic terrorism.

In future, fanatics will be referred to as pursuing "anti-Islamic activity".

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said that extremists were behaving contrary to their faith, rather than acting in the name of Islam.

Security officials believe that directly linking terrorism to Islam is inflammatory, and risks alienating mainstream Muslim opinion.

In her first major speech on radicalisation, Miss Smith repeatedly used the phrase "anti-Islamic".

In one passage she said: "As so many Muslims in the UK and across the world have pointed out, there is nothing Islamic about the wish to terrorise, nothing Islamic about plotting murder, pain and grief.

"Indeed, if anything, these actions are anti-Islamic'.

Another section referred to enlisting the Muslim community against "anti-Islamic activity".

Her words were chosen to reflect new Government strategy on labelling the terrorists and their recruiting agents.

The shift follows a decision taken last year to stop using the phrase "war on terror", first adopted by U.S. President Bush.

Officials were concerned it could act as a recruiting tool for Al Qaeda, which is determined to manufacture a battle between the values of Islam and the West.

The strategy emerging across Government is to portray terrorists as nothing more than cold-blooded murderers who are not fighting for any religious cause.

Al Qaeda inspired terrorism is instead being described by key figures as "more like a death cult".

Last night the Home Office stressed that no phrases have been "banned".

But senior Whitehall sources have made it clear that the "war on terror" and "Islamic extremism" will not be used again by people at the top of Government or those involved in counterterrorism strategy.

Sir Ken Macdonald, the Director of Public Prosecutions, has also said phrases which liken London to a " battlefield" will no longer be used.

But the move led to accusations of "hand-wringing".

Conservative MP Philip Davies said no Muslim constituent had ever complained to him about the use of the term "Islamic extremism".

The Shipley MP added: "Whenever anyone refers to Islamic terrorism, they are not saying all Muslims are terrorists.

"Everybody knows what people mean is terrorists doing it in the name of Islam, misguidedly.

"If the Government spent less time worrying about this, and more time worrying about things such as having effective border controls, we would be getting somewhere."

In her speech, Miss Smith said extremists who use the internet to radicalise young children would be pursued in the same way as paedophiles.

She will meet members of the online industry in the next few weeks to decide how to crack down on Al Qaedainspired sites.

Illegal material will be tracked down and removed using tactics already deployed against online paedophiles. Those guilty of grooming youngsters for terrorism could face prosecution under incitement laws.

Miss Smith said: "If we are ready and willing to take action to stop the grooming of vulnerable young people on social networking sites, then I believe we should also take action against those who groom vulnerable people for the purposes of violent extremism."

Her plans also include a new unit to sift through intelligence gathered by police and security agents.

The unit will be told to "identify, analyse and assess not just the inner circle of extremist groups, but those at risk of falling under their influence".

Young people found to be falling under the spell of potential terrorists will be targeted for help by community leaders and the authorities.

Outdoor activity centres and sports facilities will be sent guidance to stop them being used as meeting places by fanatics after the July 7 bombers were photographed attending a white water rafting centre in Wales.

Mosques will be helped to root out extremism, with imams encouraged to learn English. Efforts will be made to improve the access of women to mosques and their management committees.

There will be new advice for universities on how to deal with extremism on campus, and a crackdown on extremist material in libraries and galleries.

A forum of headteachers will be set up to advise on what more can be done to protect children and build bridges between communities.

Youngsters will be taught about all faiths in schools, and £2million will be spent "twinning" schools of different faiths.

Funding will be boosted to allow more youngsters to carry out volunteer work overseas.

The Government also wants to hold more "roadshows" of mainstream Islamic scholarship around the country.

Miss Smith said: "Counter-terrorist policing is not just about the sharp end - the disruption of those who seek to attack us - crucial though that is.

"It must also be about stopping people becoming or supporting terrorists. We can't, after all, simply arrest our way out of this problem."

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Terrorism is anti-Islamic. It's been non-Muslims who have been defining the terms of the discussions out of ignorance or to support an anti-Islam agenda. Good to see more intelligent voices getting attention. Christians would not stand for repeated references to "Christian terrorism". We've shown a lot of patience in the face of nonsensical rhetoric from both sides.

Yes, I agree. We should not refer to "Christian Terrorism," if any terrorist activities are done by Christians. No one ever used the term "Christian Terrorism" when Christians were fighting each other in Ireland. No religion supports terrorism.

Because Christian terrorism isn't a huge problem. Why are Muslims more outraged at people calling it Islamic terrorism than at the terrorists hi-jacking their religion. I think it's fear.

"More civilians are killed every three months by Islamic terrorists than died in the entire 36 years of the Northern Ireland "Troubles." In fact, 19 Muslim radicals killed far more innocent people in just two hours on September 11th than the number of non-combatants killed over Northern Ireland in three and a half decades."

In the 80's - Irish Republican / Loyalist terrorism was a huge problem.

Terrorism is terrorism. Anything else is garnishment - not to mention the obvious - that singling out a particular social group feeds prejudice against that group.

Its about damn time someone started paying attention to what Muslims have been saying every since 9/11....terrorism has no basis in Islam...or any other religion for that matter. Maybe more people will listen for a change rather than continue the ineffectual and seemingly useless argument to the contrary....all the while there are a bunch of terrorists hunkered down in some dank cave somewhere gleefully counting their hasanats for conquering and dividing the Muslims and the rest of the world...for what purpose...who the hell knows...probably they dont even know.

Considering George Bush has probably used the phrase "war on terror" more than all other humans on earth combined, and cant seem to get through a simple comment without bringing that phrase into it in some tangent way....its interesting that he now wants to move away from it....just when he's about to lame duck his butt out of the white house....hmmmm.

Most of the "civilians" and "innocent people" killed by "Muslim radicals" are Muslims, not non-Muslims. That is the lie by omission that sites like the one you posted this from engage in. Terrorism is against Muslims more than any other group. It's beyond time that we get to participate in an interfaith discussion of the problem on a basis that isn't insulting to the victims from our communities.
