The mainstream media's brightest minds have uncovered the shocking news that the sort of person who drives a car full of nails into an airport terminal may be in some way motivated by "beliefs." These so-called "Beliefs" have a provenance and character which remains murky, but may be in some way atheistic, Hasidic, Pentecostal, Mahayana, panentheistic, Zoroastrian, Scientological, or animistic.
Fortunately, the European Union has determined in advance that one possibility can be ruled out straightaway--there's no chance that the world's greatest Religion of Peace might have anything to do with it. From the Daily Mail:
Gordon Brown's ban on the word "Muslim" in relation to terrorism can be blamed on the EU.
The prime minister has told Cabinet members not to mention "Muslim" and "terrorism" in the same breath.
It comes after the European Commission issued a guide for government spokesmen to avoid offence by ruling out the words such as "jihad", "Islamic" or "fundamentalist" in statements about terrorist attacks.
