Denying Reality in Brussels

Once again, the bureaucrats running the European Union have proven that political correctness and multiculturalist fantasy trumps reality - and the safety or EU citizens - at the highest levels of European government.

The European Union has drawn up guidelines advising government spokesmen to refrain from linking Islam and terrorism in their statements.

Brussels officials have confirmed the existence of a classified handbook which offers "non-offensive" phrases to use when announcing anti-terrorist operations or dealing with terrorist attacks.

Banned terms are said to include "jihad", "Islamic" or "fundamentalist".

The word "jihad" is to be avoided altogether, according to some sources, because for Muslims the word can mean a personal struggle to live a moral life.

One alternative, suggested publicly last year, is for the term "Islamic terrorism" to be replaced by "terrorists who abusively invoke Islam".

An EU official said that the secret guidebook, or, "common lexicon", is aimed at preventing the distortion of the Muslim faith and the alienation of Muslims in Europe.

"The common lexicon includes guidance on a number of frequently used terms where lack of care by EU and member states' spokespeople may give rise to misunderstandings," he said.

This would be funny - almost a scene ripped out of the British TV series Yes, Minister - if it weren't so dangerous. According to the EU, European leaders are supposed to deny any link between Islam and Islamic terrorism, even though the terrorist in question are solely Muslim, recruit only other Muslims, publiclly declare that they are fighting for Islam, find justification in Islamic texts, drape themselves in Islamic rhetoric and culture, and enjoy considerable support among Muslims (and only Muslim) in Europe and abroad.

The suggested phrase "terrorists who abusively invoke Islam" is so ridiculous it could only have come from the mind of a bureaucrat. Unfortunately, it echoes the mindless blather of President Bush, who in the wake of 9/11, asserted by strenght of hope alone, that "Islam is a religion of peace" and that Islamic terrorists were "twisting" Islam to suit their goals. Suhc is nonsense as any clear reading of Islamic history or theology will amply show (President Bush constantly shows himself unacquainted with either). Robert Spencer, among others, has done a fantastic job of exposing the core theology of violence inherent in Islam.

The new EU guidelines make clear what has been obvious for some time: European multiculturalists cannot face up to the reality of Islamic terror. Many Muslims will not assimilate, or behave peacefully. Islam in its purest form is intolerant, misogynistic, homophobic, totalitarian, anti-science, anti-reason and supremacist. Islam will not play nice in the politically correct garden; it wants to burn the garden down and plant only its own seed. But, acknowledging that means repudiating the central notion of multiculturalism - that all cultures and all peoples are the same, equal in value and merit. That no culture is better than another and to thinks so is racist. Most of Islam's believers are brown or dark-skinned, so to reject Islam is to reject them, and that would be racist. Racism is the worst crime possible in Europe and cannot be tolerated. Therefore, European leaders are perfectly willing to avert their eyes as their continent is colonized and the civilization destroyed from within. They cannot admit their multiculturalist paradise is a lie. They cannot question their true faith.

Europe will suffer for this. By denying reality the EU remains unable to take the measures necessary to save itself - stopping Muslim immigration and beginning the deportation of Muslims already living in Europe. Fortunately, such obvious and ridiculous evasions will continue to errode Brussels's credibility among European votes (who can very well see the truth with their own eyes), who may increasingly turn to anti-immigration parties and ultimately bring the EU house of cards crashing down upon itself. At least, one has to hope.
