In tonight's Channel 4 news there was a piece about the commencement of building on the World Trade Centre site in New York. The newcaster referred to the "destruction of the World Trade Centre by suicide hijackers". As we all know the WTC was destroyed with terrible loss of life by terrorists - muslim terrorists to be precise. This atrocity was committed in the name of the Islamic religion by cold blooded murderers who thought they had a divine right to take innocent lives to further their religious goals. When this terrible incident happened the perpetrators were referred to as "Islamic extremists" or "Islamic terrorists" for some time. It was an accurate and relevant description of the murderers. So why now has any reference to their religion and motive been removed? Is it just another example of our nauseous obsession with not causing offence to minorities?
