Muslims upset at term "War on Terror"

Of course, the Gray Lady notes this with the headline "Thoughts on Tweaking the ‘War on Terror’ Message."

“It is interpreted in the Muslim world as a war on Islam and we don’t need this,” Under Secretary Charles E. Allen said, adding that it spreads “animus” far beyond the enemy.

It's also "interpreted" by a significant portion of Muslim world that Jews are the personification of evil and that Israel should be eradicated. So?

Where in the phrase "War on Terror" is Islam mentioned? Oh, I get it! It's because at the present time the WoT is actually focused on radical Muslim terrorists! How DARE we "imply" we're battling radical Islam -- even though the term actually .... DOESN'T!!

Clear enough yet? GOOD! Because that's what asinine political correctness DOES -- makes us look like ASSES.

How about "War on Pig-Humping Followers of the Pedophiliac False Prophet Muhammad"?

Democrats take it personally when Bush criticizes appeasement, even though he never mentions Democrats.

Muslims believe a War on Terror is a War on Islam, even though there are non-Muslim terrorists.

To misquote Shakespeare, methinks they doth protest too much.
