A commonsense definition of terrorism: the deliberate targeting and murder of civilians to spread terror in pursuit of a political or religious cause. Pretty clear, right? Not to the nonjudgmental BBC, which refuses to label the perpetrators of the London bombings as terrorists (instead classifying the Islamic fanatics as “bombers”). From whence comes this even-handed neutrality? There is no need to be objective when describing the terrorists. They are intent on spreading terror and death among the “infidels” in the service of their pitiless religion. Can we not call a spade a spade? Or are we already surrendering intellectually?
