EUtopian new-speak on terror

It’s the love that dare not speak his name.
Diana West:

How wunderbar, merveilleux and perfectly ripping that the European Union is creating a new "lexicon" to discuss Islam and terrorism so as never to conflate the two. The Telegraph tells us that EU officials -- having double-checked that George Orwell and his satirical pen are dead and gone -- are putting together a "non-emotive lexicon for discussing radicalization."
In other words, this lexicon speech code will prove the rightness of the inane accusations of oppression, thus linking all terror and all of Islam, even though it isn’t true. All subjects are now off the table unless one uses the new code-words.

All it will do is provide a cover for the promoters of terror by shrouding it in what’s left of the European understanding of religion.
