stop calling the poor boys terrorists, and never use insulting words when describing them.

Just when you think you have an understanding of what some words mean,
the rules change.
Apparently there are words and terms , “terrorist” being just one, that are thought to be loaded (no pun) and create problems.  Sooo, one branch of the BBC if not all of it, are to stop describing the folks who are happy to blow their own selves to kingdom come, along with any innocent bystanders, as “terrorists”.
Well heck, I suppose AQ is no longer a terror group then.
The scum who gave us 9/11 shouldn’t be referred to as terrorists either as I understand things.

Speaking of things that change. Plans are afoot here, if the woman who heads the Crown Prosecution Service has her way, to make men accused of rape in cases where the possible victim was 3 sheets to the wind at the time of said sexual encounter, must prove that they had the consent of said woman prior to the act.
In other words, you are guilty until proved innocent.

Which is unrelated to the following.

BBC Arabic Head: Charlie Hebdo Attackers Should Not Be Called ‘Terrorists’

By Brendan Bordelon

The head of the British Broadcasting Corporation’s Arabic news channel said the Islamic terrorists who killed 12 people in an attack on the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo should not be labeled “terrorists,” calling the term too “loaded.”

Tarik Kalafa is the head of BBC Arabic, a 2008 spin-off of the internationally ubiqiutous British news service that serves nearly 11 million homes across the Middle East. On Sunday, Kalafa spoke with The Independent about his network’s coverage of the Kouachi brothers, two Islamic terrorists who wreaked havoc across Paris before dying in a shootout with police on January 9.

“We try to avoid describing anyone as a terrorist or an act as being terrorist,” he said. “What we try to do is to say that ‘two men killed 12 people in an attack on the office of a satirical magazine.’ That’s enough, we know what that means and what it is.”

“Terrorism is such a loaded word,” Kalafa continued. ”The U.N. has been struggling for more than a decade to define the word, and they can’t. It is very difficult to. We know what political violence is, we know what murder, bombings and shootings are and we describe them. That’s much more revealing, we believe, than using a word like terrorist which people will see as value-laden.”

It’s the latest iteration of a media organization struggling to define those behind the worldwide surge in Islamic terrorist activities.

On Tuesday, National Review Online obtained an internal email showing the head of output at Al Jazeera English warning journalists against using the terms “terrorists,” “extremists,” “militants” or “jihadists” when describing the actions taken by radical Islamist groups. “Avoid characterizing people,” the Al Jazeera executive admonished.

NATIONAL REVIEW

The American born Mayor of London has come under fire for using incorrect and bad language when referring to the bomb throwers and suicide types. The folks who are called jihadists.

What the mayor said. 

Home-grown fanatics who join ISIS are ‘losers’ who watch porn because they can’t find girlfriends, blasts Boris Johnson

· London Mayor said terrorists ‘badly adjusted in their relations with women’
· Mr Johnson said: ‘They typically will look at porn. They are literally losers
· Attack comes after psychological profiling by Britain’s spy agencies
· Around 600 jihadis have left Britain to join ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria
· Ministers have warned ISIS now poses ‘the greatest single threat’ to Britain

By Tom McTague, Deputy Political Editor for MailOnline

Home-grown fanatics who go to fight with ISIS are ‘wankers’ who watch porn because they can’t find girlfriends, Boris Johnson has claimed.

The London Mayor said British terrorists become radicalised are often ‘badly adjusted in their relations with women’ and turn to extremism to stop them feeling like losers.

He said: ‘If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally wankers.’

Mr Johnson’s remarks were blasted by some Muslim groups. But the London Mayor said his claim was ‘not remotely controversial’.
He said it was time for Muslim leaders to speak up much more forcefully against Islamist terror.

The prospective Tory MP said: ‘They are not explaining how it can be that this one religion seems to be leading people astray in so many cases.

‘They are not being persuasive in the right way with these people. I am not yet hearing it in the way we need to hear it.’

He said the ISIS fanatics tearing across the Middle East were ‘barbaric’ and ‘deserve to be treated as such’.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
