For those that do not know what I am on about, the term 'innocents' is widely meant to exclude non-Muslims and any Muslims who are not pious or have been marked as such by Allah - who writes all their destinies, according to some. Thus, when a spokesperson says "we condemn attacks on innocents" they actually mean "we only condemn attacks on pious Muslims" and by that you can safely interpret to mean "we only condemn actions of non-Muslims on the Muslim community".
At last, David Davis MP and Shadow Home Secretary has said it:
Absolutely bang on. It is not just HuT jabberings, though. The MCB and others also trot out this disingenuous line. They are truly beyond contempt.
In response to the recent attempted attacks in London and Glasgow, HuT confined itself to this general legalistic comment: “We reiterate our position that Islam does not allow the harming of innocent civilians.”So were those targeted at Glasgow airport and the Haymarket “innocent” or “guilty” civilians? This deliberate ambiguity is telling.
