Stop using term ‘Islamist terrorism’ – UK government watchdog

The UK’s anti-terrorism watchdog wants to see the term “Islamist terrorism” stamped out, saying it is “fundamentally wrong” to associate religion with terrorism. Max Hill QC wants the term “Daesh-inspired terrorism” used instead.

Hill, the Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, said that the word ‘terrorism’ should not be attached “to any of the world religions.”

His comments mean that Prime Minister Theresa May and Home Secretary Amber Rudd, who have both spoken about the threat posed by “Islamist terrorists,” would need to rethink their language. Head of MI5 Andrew Parker has also used the term, previously warning of an “intense UK threat from Islamist extremists.”

The Dhimmi runs deep in that one…
