Been there, done it.
If language is not correct, then what is said is not what is meant; if what is said is not what is meant, then what must be done remains undone; if this remains undone, morals and art will deteriorate; if justice goes astray, the people will stand about in helpless confusion. Hence there must be no arbitrariness in what is said. This matters above everything.
Hazel Blears, Jacqui Smith, Gordon Brown, Jack “the burqa” Straw and other mental flatliners tried it in once great Britain, where titles of nobility have been bestowed on the most undeserving Mohammedans, Islamists who now sit in parliament, corrupt, incompetent, insolent and obstructive, enemies of democracy, who focus on one goal only: the Islamization of Britain.
Karen Hughes, a Bush confidante who served as his top diplomat to the Muslim world in his second term, urged the White House to stop the “War on Terror:”
…. it’s unfortunate because of the way it’s heard. We ought to avoid the language of religion,” Hughes said. “Whenever they hear ‘Islamic extremism, Islamic jihad, Islamic fundamentalism,’ they perceive it as a sort of an attack on their faith. That’s the world view Osama bin Laden wants them to have.”
Community organizer Obama, America’s first Muslim POTUS, Â now wants to repeat this failed experiment:
Barack Obama seems to think that if he refuses to mentionÂ why they fight, terrorists will forget:
President Barack Obama’s advisers plan to remove terms such as “Islamic radicalism” from a document outlining national security strategy and will use the new version to emphasize that the U.S. does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terrorism, counterterrorism officials say.
The change would be a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventive war. It currently states, “The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.”
This strategy is going to cause grief for the US State Department, which will have to ask many of the world’s worst terrorist groups to find less explicitly Islamist names if they want to be included on its list:
1. Abu Nidal Organization (ANO)
2. Abu Sayyaf Group
3.Â Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade
5.Â Ansar al-Islam
6.Â Armed Islamic Group (GIA)
7. Asbat al-Ansar
8. Aum Shinrikyo
9. Basque Fatherland and Liberty (ETA)
10. Communist Party of the Philippines/New People’s Army (CPP/NPA)
11. Continuity Irish Republican Army
12.Â Gama’a al-Islamiyya (Islamic Group)
13. HAMAS (Islamic Resistance Movement)
14.Â Harakat ul-Jihad-i-Islami/Bangladesh (HUJI-B)
15.Â Harakat ul-Mujahidin (HUM)
16.Â Hizballah (Party of God)
17.Â Islamic Jihad Group
18.Â Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU)
19.Â Jaish-e-Mohammed (JEM) (Army of Mohammed)
20.Â Jemaah Islamiya organization (JI)
21.Â al-Jihad (Egyptian Islamic Jihad)
22. Kahane Chai (Kach)
23. Kongra-Gel (KGK, formerly Kurdistan Workers’ Party, PKK, KADEK)

The only thing Barack Obama ran before he became a president was his mouth.
This is showing. This man is a clear and present danger to his country.
I am not convinced he is not a muslim. Besides, even if I am wrong, with friends like him, Muslims don’t need converts. He is handing it to them on a plate.
