You can’t make this shit up.
Atlas Shrugs nails it:
So Muslims slaughter in the cause of jihad, but the kaffir is not allowed to speak of it.
It’s as if the prosecutors have to ask permission of the court so as not to …. blaspheme under the sharia. Seriously, this is sharia adherence in an American court.
PORTLAND, Ore. — Prosecutors want to call an Oregon [Muslim] man a terrorist while referring to violent jihad and martyrdom, words his defense attorneys have asked a federal judge to forbid.
Federal prosecutors preparing for the January trial of Mohamed Mohamud said in a motion filed Tuesday that the court should let them use the terms because they accurately characterize Mohamud’s “conduct and the nature of his case.”
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ethan Knight notes in the motion that Mohamud himself allegedly used the terms “terrorism” and “jihad” when speaking with undercover agents, though records of such conversations have not yet been made public.
Knight also seeks to refer to Mohamud’s occasional dispatches for the jihadist magazine “Jihad Recollections,” reports that Mohamud’s attorneys say are protected speech done while Mohamud, 21, was a minor.
Mohamud is accused of conspiring with men he believed were Islamic radicals to detonate a car bomb near a 2010 Portland Christmas tree-lighting ceremony. The bomb was a fake provided by the government and the men were undercover agents.
Defense attorneys Steve Sady and Steve Wax argued in a motion that such words will “blur and dilute the specific elements of the offense and distort the facts of the case.”
Prosecutors responded that such a prohibition should be measured, if used at all.

He read a statement speaking of his dream of bringing “a dark day” on Americans and blaming his family for thwarting him, according to the court documents:
“To my parents who held me back from Jihad in the cause of Allah. I say to them … if you — if you make allies with the enemy, then Allah’s power … will ask you about that on the day of judgment, and nothing that you do can hold me back …”
