Lexicon

In summation with my recent gains in knowledge of Arabic, I hereby pledge myself to attempt to refer to Islamic terrorists as jihadists no longer. Now I'm not sure if this is smart, seeing as it occurs to me that every muslim is a potential suicide bomber, but I'm willing to give them all the benefit of the doubt.

Therefore, lets now label terrorism as irhab, Arabic for terrorism, thus allowing us to call the terrorists irhabis, irhabists and irhabiyoun rather than "jihadis" and "jihadists" and "mujahideen" and "shahids" (martyrs), thus depriving them of the moral martyrdom they so badly crave.

Fight fire with fire.
