Who Says Terrorism Doesn't Work?

Certainly not the BBC.
The BBC has dropped plans to show a fictional terror attack in an episode of Casualty to avoid offending Muslims.

The first show of the hospital drama's new series was to have featured a storyline about an explosion caused by Islamic extremists.
The funniest thing is how they changed the story line:
Now the bomb will be set off by animal rights campaigners instead.
The hypocricy is farsical. Apparently, it's OK to offend animal rights activists but not muslims. Why is that? John from Davenport, a commenter on the article, sums it up quite nicely:
This proves that terrorism works. The BBC is terrified of Muslims.
Of course, the BBC denies any such claims:
A BBC spokesman dismissed as "ludicrous" suggestions that the corporation was too frightened to deal with an Islamic plotline.

"Discussions were held about this plotline at a very early stage with our editorial policy department," she said. "With any storyline process there are lots of ideas that get put forward but don't make the series.
Remember that the BBC is publicly funded through a 135 pound TV licensing fee charged to each television set in the nation. Perhaps the good people of the UK could refuse to pay the fee, and then we'll see how well the Beeb fares on its own as a private enterprise. I'll wager that they fall on their collectivist, socialist faces in rather short order.

It looks like the sun has finally set on the British Empire. Today's British government exemplifies dhimmitude. Aloha Snack Bar.

The vast majority of people think that the object of terrorism is to kill people. Killing people and suicide bombings is one of the means a terrorists uses to acheave their objective.

The objective of a terrorist is to force people, out of fear, to abandon their will and submit to theirs. The goal of Islamists terrorists is to either their enemies willing slaves or convert them to Islam. In either outcome, you will have submitted your will to theirs.

Terrorism is working in England as the English people and government are willingly submitting their will to the Islamists. And, I hate to say it but it's starting to work here in America too. The fear of possible future terrorist attacks are causing a "let's all just get along and sing kum-bi-ya attitude on the part of those who lean left of center.
