Non Violent Jihad Waged.

Iain Dale links to this amusing article on Conservative Home about the left wing lexicon. The piece seems to have made quite an impression on the members of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee, and they're members now want the author, Inigo Wilson, lynched like a jewish school girl. The definitions which they have taken offence at are:

Islamophobic - anyone who objects to having their transport blown up on the way to work.
Palestinians - archetype 'victims' no matter how many teenagers they murder in bars and fast food outlets. Never responsible for anything they do – or done in their name - because of 'root causes' or ‘legitimate grievances’.
As you can see it is pretty inoffensive stuff, but MPAC's members have decided that being opposed to blowing up fast food joints is Islamophobic, which kind of proves the first definition, and are writing en bloc to Wilson's employer, Orange, who rather unbelievably have suspended him! The intentional conflation of mocking Islamist fanatics with an attack on muslims is obviously intentional on MPAC's part, it is rather like claiming that mocking the Waffen SS is evidence of Teutonophobia. The phone company say that the suspension does not imply guilt but if they do take action against him I would certainly urge anyone who believes in free speech to boycott Orange.

MPAC who claim to be "empowering muslims to focus on non violent jihad" are a highly noxious group, I shall post a few links about their views tomorrow.
