My first thought was "oh God here we go..."
"It's not what you say but what they hear" (perhaps we need to say "you f*cking radical piece of shit Islamo-fascist terrorist bastards can kiss my ass!!"--just a little louder?)
"Don't take the bait. We should offer only minimal, if any, response to their messages. When we respond loudly, we raise their prestige in the Muslim world." (0k, maybe we need to say "you f*cking radical piece of shit Islamo-fascist terrorist bastards can kiss my ass" but without the exclamation point)
"Never use the terms 'jihadist' or 'mujahedeen' in conversation to describe the terrorists. ... Calling our enemies 'jihadis' and their movement a global 'jihad' unintentionally legitimizes their actions." (Well that sucks, next time I have a conversation with a terrorist I guess I'll just have to make sure I remember that)
"Use the terms 'violent extremist' or 'terrorist.' Both are widely understood terms that define our enemies appropriately and simultaneously deny them any level of legitimacy." (ooooh violent extremist sounds so---so---dangerous!)
On the other hand, avoid ill-defined and offensive terminology: "We are communicating with, not confronting, our audiences. Don't insult or confuse them with pejorative terms such as 'Islamo-fascism,' which are considered offensive by many Muslims." (Oy vey)
GOOD GOD MAN!
Of course *sigh* this new lesson on how to speak correctly comes from the same government that insists we're going through a "slowdown" and not a recession.
If it looks like Islamo-fascism and smell likes jihad, well then that's what it is. You can call it what you like, but the truth is what it is.
