We should be calling them irhabists, and what they do hirabah.

Quote:
Guirard says we should use the following terms: hirabah (“unholy war”) instead of jihad; irhabists (“terrorists”) instead of jihadists; mufsidoon (“evildoers”) instead of mujahideen. Unfortunately, it's hard to see how we could start using such terms almost six years after 9/11, but then again, if editors of large papers (and TV moguls) encouraged using them, how many journalists would oppose it?


Maybe we can start something if we correctly label these mufsidoon here? Maybe Craig and Stephen could put in some automatic word substitutions?

That does make more sense I agree. It would be hard to change becuase of the principal of common usage but calling them holy warriors does play into their hand.
Thanks for that

Yeah, imagine them reading the Western papers, and getting a moral boost every time they read about their actions? Holy warrior is undoubtedly a positive term. Evildoer, they would not be getting that same validation of their world view every time they read one of their enemy's papers.

Here is a good list of terms (some are repeated)

http://smallwarsjournal.com/bl.....insurgenc/
(this is also from Jim Guirard, also check out Truespeak.org)

(a) NOT as constituting so-called "Jihad" (Holy War) but ungodly "Hirabah" (unholy war, war against society) and forbidden "Irhab" (Terrorism), instead;
(b) NOT as the "jihadis" and the "mujahideen" they falsely claim to be but as the irhabis (terrorists) and the mufsiduun (evildoers, mortal sinners and corrupters) they really are;
© NOT as the Godly heroes of "Jihadi Martyrdom" they falsely claim to be but as the Satanic perpetrators of "Irhabi Murderdom" (Genocidal Terrorism) they really are;
(d) NOT as destined for a virgin-filled Paradise for killing all of us so-called kuffar (infidels) but to a demon-filled Jahannam (Eternal Hellfire) for killing so many thousands of innocents, fellow Muslims, "People of the Book" and "Sons of Abraham," instead;
(e) NOT as the abd'al-Allah (Servants of Allah) they falsely claim to be but as the abd'al-Shaitan (Servants of Satan), the murtadduun (apostates) and the khawarij (outside-the-religion deviants) they really are.

Using these terms would rightfully start to turn back the massive losses that have been suffered in the information and propaganda battles of this holy war. Knowing ones enemy, and being able to fight them with their own weapons has been ignored in this war much to our detriment. Sounds like that may be starting to change!

Just another Left attempt to appease Islamists and those who think the West is out to get them.
