Paris, France (CNSNews.com) - The European Union has created a special lexicon for use by government spokesmen to avoid associating Islam with terrorism in their statements to the press.
"Jihad," "Islamist" and "fundamentalist" are words that are discouraged, ostensibly to avoid offending or alienating Muslims by linking them to terrorism.
E.U. and British officials have confirmed the existence of the directive with the special lexicon, although its contents remain classified.
