Submitting to the whims of sharia at every level.
Creeping Sharia has covered this topic many times (read the important back-stories via links below), most recently noting the DHS’ new chieftain, Janet Napolitano, refused to use the word “terrorism” but who would have ever thought it would get this absurd. They have actually replaced the word terrorism with “man-caused disaster’.
Other words on the ‘don’t offend the jihadists’ lists at various levels of various U.S. agencies – including those specifically created to keep Americans safe from Islamic terrorists in the wake of 9/11 – include: jihad, jihadism, Islamist, mujahideen, caliphate, war on terror, enemy combatant, and let’s not forget during the presidential campaign anyone who uttered “Hussein” was a racist, Islamophobe, or bigot as well.

Obama-Speak: Homeland Security Secretary Replaces ‘Terrorism’ With the Term ‘Man-Caused Disaster’
Even as President Obama compares bankers to suicide bombers, his Homeland Security Secretary is suggesting the T-word, terrorism, is too inflammatory and representative of old-fashioned “politics of fear.” She’s announced a new term: “man-caused disaster.” From an interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel:
SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word “terrorism.” Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?
NAPOLITANO: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word “terrorism,” I referred to “man-caused” disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.
But what if the suicide bomber is a female? Isn’t it sexist to use “man-caused disaster”? ~end
