Dr. Pipes

I noticed that the correspondents of the politically correct BBC news started to re-use the terms: Islamists, Jihad (they do not define the word jihad but it is very clear that they are not talking about a walk in the park) and islamists and yes they talk about terrorism but not Islamic terrorism.and I suspect that the reason is obvious that there is no other way than you can describe these criminals or their motives without calling them jihadis, islamists and terrorists

It is time for our leaders that are beyond help do the same
