Mounties instructed to avoid 'inflammatory' Islamist terms
by Daniel Proussalidis
There is new trouble for the RCMP over a manual that tries to wash out terms like "Islamist" and "jihad" from officers' mouths when they talk about terrorism.
"Distorted and inflammatory linkages between Islam and terrorism can serve to convince Muslims -- both in the West and in the larger Islamic world -- that the West is, in fact, their enemy," the manual says.
That doesn't impress anti-terror expert David Harris, of Insignis Strategic Research.
