“And then, at the end of the show, the BBC lost their mind, [saying] ‘You need to re-record it! You need to say Isis aren’t devout Muslims.’ I was like, ‘Are you worried we are going to offend Isis?’ Are they going to write in?’”
No, it’s clear that the BBC was not worried about offending the Islamic State (ISIS). Calling ISIS devout Muslims wouldn’t offend them. They are devout Muslims. The BBC was worried about offending the Muslims who hold to the fiction, or want British non-Muslims to hold to the fiction, that ISIS isn’t Islamic and doesn’t operate according to Islamic teachings.
What cringing cowardice. Cowardice and kowtowing before Islamic intimidation are pandemic these days, but that doesn’t make them any more excusable. I’m with Charb, the editor of Charlie Hebdo who was murdered by jihadis: “I’d rather die standing up than live on my knees.” And he did. And I may. But there really isn’t any other alternative. How can these BBC jellyfish live with themselves?
