BBC Told Reporters Not to Describe Mall Murdering Jihadists as “Terrorists”


BBC Islam_1

Apparently taking hostages and trying to kill everyone who didn’t know the name of Mohammed’s mother while belonging to a notorious terrorist organization was not enough for the BBC to recognize them as terrorists.

The BBC has come under fire for referring to the perpetrators of the Kenyan shopping mall massacre as ‘militants’ rather than ‘terrorists’.

In coverage of the violence at the Westgate mall in Nairobi which has killed more than 60 the Corporation’s journalists have repeatedly described the attackers as ‘Islamic militants’.

It is understood that BBC guidance issued to staff tells them to avoid using the term ‘terrorist’ without attribution, but politicians have reacted with anger to the choice of language.

In four news bulletins this morning, Neal Sleat, newsreader on Radio 4′s today programme, did not use the word ‘terrorist’ once.

Instead he referred to the culprits as ‘Islamic militants’, while reporters on the BBC website describes those responsible as ‘suspected al-Shabab militants’.

There’s always alleged suspected angry people. If only they had been EDL. I’m sure the BBC would have found the proper words to describe them.

    the truth is offensive to the BBC….

    • Gee

      The truth is non-existent to the BBC

  • DogmaelJones1

    I’m currently watching BBC-produced “Survivors” on Netflix. It is a multicultural mess, a kind of apocalyptic soap opera.

  • Jakareh

    If there are any patriotic Britons left, I wish they would “militate” at BBC headquarters.

    • Corioilis

      What patriotic Britons are you talking about? Election results, over many years–this is HARD DATA!–demonstrate that Britons want to be lead by multiculturalist and pro-Islam politicians. Clearly, Britons love Islam, or at least dont have any problems with it.

      • Trevor Celebkidnapperforhire P

        I’m a brit and I fucking hate pisslam. I’m not the only one, most of us non muzzie brits want to remove all muslims from the country and hang the treacherous politicos who allowed them here and give them carte blanch to do their thing. We would love to “militate” the dhimmi bbc and the rest of the dhimmi media who now operates under sharia, but the moment any of us gather to even protest against islam, we are attacked by the police, the uaf groups, the muslims…. We in the uk are fighting a losing battle. And just wait until the muslim obama takes your guns, you guys will be going the same way.

  • Corioilis

    I’m outraged at the BBC using the term “Islamic militants”. This has nothing to do with Islam. Islam is a religion of peace.

    • Jakareh

      Sure, and night is day.

    • Hass

      Shut up imbecile. You’re on the wrong site. Piss off to Loonwatch where you belong. Over there they believe anything Muslimes say.

    • glpage

      Well, it might be after the Muslims kill off all non-believers. But, I wouldn’t hold my breath, then the Shias and Sunnis will go after each other until there is no one left to kill.

  • Father Dacius

    I think countries much like man himself at some point get old and tired. The folks that run England seem to show that tendency.” If I don’t look at it then it won’t affect my day.” They havn’t gotten to the “wishing real hard” stage yet, but they are on they’re on their way.

    • Moa

      Dude, they are already cringing at the “Please don’t hurt me!” stage.

      • Trevor Celebkidnapperforhire P

        You are wrong, very wrong. I don’t see you yanks doing much about the spreading of islam in you own country. I mean you even let obama built a victory mosque on your hallowed ground zero. If they tried doing that here, the EDL groups would kick up a huge fuss, albeit, from within the law, just about. What are you lot doing?

        • Moa

          Hey Trev, you do know that Britain has 87 Sharia courts already operating, right? That they supposed to handle civil cases only but have been moving towards criminal matters. The rulings of these Sharia courts are backed by the full power of the State.

          Hell, Tommy Robinson was prevented from walking through Tower Hamlets. Sharia enforced by the London Met Police!

          The USA is buggered too. But at least many states are passing ALAC laws (American Laws for American Courts) to ensure that US Law is primary (since there have been at least 29 cases where activist judges have ruled in favor of Sharia “principles” over Constitutional considerations).

          btw, I’m from New Zealand. I’m just looking at the immigration policies of both countries and amazed at how far Cultural Marxism have driven your societies to insanity and self-destructiveness.

          ps. The EDL show the British Bulldog spirit. To me their agitation seems to be the greatest reason for hope for long-term survival of British culture.

  • Boycott BBCA!

    I am deleting BBC America (BBCA) from my channel line up, so I do not accidently run thru the channel or see a show on the TV guide and want to watch a particular movie on the BBCA.

    My cable company knows which shows/channels, people watch.

    We do not have a la carte pricing, but over time if no one watches BBCA, then possibly the company will drop it from its’ basic package.

    BOYCOTT NOW!

    • CowboyUp

      Lol, I deleted my whole channel lineup, by deleting the service. Otherwise, they still get your money because you’re buying a package. If I think something is worth watching, I’ll buy it, but I usually have better things to do with my time and money. I’ve never watched enough tv for it to matter much to me anyway.

      • Boycott BBCA!

        Rating still matter some although leftist advertising execs & buyers are trying to go against the tide.

        Denying subscriptions is faster and less susceptible to leftist interference.

        but face it the liberals will tax you, give the money to people and welfare so they can have cable because entertainment is a right. So liberals can get around anything.

  • justquitnow

    I don’t think Greenfield understands what “without attribution” means. Not everything is a conspiracy…sometimes language is just too confusing for people and makes them not feel the way they want to feel inside.

    • Gee

      I know you don’t know what the word ‘terrorist’ means

      • justquitnow

        Well…to be a terrorist, you are suppose to have some kind of political objective you are trying to achieve no matter how stupid. So if a group of people are shooting up a mall, are they robbing the place? crazed gunman going postal? or is a message going to come from Al Whatever saying they did it for such in such….well then you got yourself a terrorist.

        You want money….what kind of terrorists are you?

        Who said we were terrorists? – DieHard

        • Race_Dissident

          Terrorism has changed. In the 80s and before, terrorism was tied to political and sometime material demands. Nowadays the objective of terrorists–almost all of them Moslems–is simply to sow terror among the infidel. By this new standard, the Kenyan perps were the very definition of terrorists.

          • justquitnow

            And the BBC doesn’t quite share your “new” standard and it’s effective worldwide implementation in all the minds of men…therefore they are working with the muslims to obscure your understanding because during the confusion of the first few hours of the siege they did’t want to start screaming terrorists!!!

        • glpage

          And jihadists shooting up a mall and killing people in the name of Allah to force the world into compliance with Islam is not terrorism. Hmmm, could have fooled me.

          • justquitnow

            well once that is know you have “attribution” don’t you.

      • Drakken

        I prefer to call them what they are, muslim jihadist.

  • Demetrius Minneapolis

    Waiting for the day when the “militants” pay a visit to the BBC HQ in London.

    • CowboyUp

      It’ll come. Churchill warned them about feeding that crocodile.

  • Silver Gonzales

    The tragedy is that this attack by noble militants for Mohammed did not take place at the headquarters of the BBC during their lunch hour.

    Such a joy to behold such a site of lefties running for their lives while damning Israel for this.

  • ytdontplay

    The name of the prophet’s (piss be upon him) mother is Amina, the same name as the Kenyan Foreign Minister Amina Mohammad. Coincidence?

  • DustMan

    Saudi is behind much of what is going on it almost seems but their support structure is a bit mysterious. Many of those involved in 911 were Saudi. Many have infiltrated Americas government and control our news media sources. One of their major goals is to erect Mosques all over the US like crazy and the money to do that comes from their oil. All the oil money is being put to use in a financial warfare of Jihad. Supposedly even our president has connections (his brother) to the Islamic Brotherhood. Obama was even pushing pretty strongly for the US to fund the Islamic brotherhood with fighter jets and money. Probably because of his connections. However there are those in power who should know this is going on and the question is why are they allowing it. Some pretty shady stuff is going on. I am convinced after reading a scientific report of military grade thermite found in the rubble of building 7 that collapsed on 911 (actual flakes burned hotter and ignited at lower temperature than normal thermite) and the way they rapidly shipped off the rubble and disposed of it overseas there by concealing evidence and by destroying building 7 they destroyed the evidence for the Enron scandal. That and Silversteins comment of “pull it.”

    Muslims are a plauge upon the world, their actions speak for themselves.

  • SSMcDonald

    What should anyone expect from the left wing BlGOTS at BBC?

  • neil

    I agree they are not terrorists, but the principle that BBC stands on in this is not the same as mine. This is just a part of the required duty of being a muslim, these actions are not extreme in islam it is what taught to do from a very early age. Pork infused bullets would go a very long way in deterring this, the company that produces this type of ammo in the US is Jihawg. It removes the benefit of dying in a jihad from muslims when they are corrupted with pig particles, simply burying them in fresh pig skins works also.

  • Trevor Celebkidnapperforhire P

    The brit press is using the word militant. How many more words will be banned for fear of offending muslims? It doesn’t matter what words you use, they still kill you.

  • Trevor Celebkidnapperforhire P

    Americans, you are constantly hounding us brits, because we have let our politicians enforce sharia upon us. Yet you are doing the same. We have no guns, and therefore, no way of fighting the PC forces. You still have your guns. At least for now, perhaps you can put that to use before the sharia it’s full affect in your country. You know muzzbama is pushing for it. I’d never advocate violence upon another human, but let’s face it, muslims are hardly human, are they? You yanks need to start holding these coonts to account for their actions. What are you waiting for? You have at least ten million in america to go at. Look at Dearborn Michigan? Do something now or you will end up just like the UK. Sometimes, death is preferable to sharia slavery.

  • Trevor Celebkidnapperforhire P

    Americans, you let obama build a victory mosque on ground zero. If the politicians tried to do that here, on our sacred british turf, the EDL would kick up a shitstorm. Please stop judging us brits. When you guys are letting exactly the same thing happen.

  • marmorhall

    This sounds a lot like the Swedish public service television, SVT.
