Never mind Obama refusing to use the term “radical Islamic terrorism,” now the BBC has suggested that calling terrorists “terrorists” might be a bigoted thought crime.
A tweet sent out by BBC Scotland asks, “Do you think we should remove the word “Islamist” or “terrorist” from our newspapers or does it categorise the atrocities for what they are?”
Because referring to Islamists who carry out atrocities in the name of Islam as “Islamists” might offend Islamists.
Even worse, calling terrorists who carry out acts of terror “terrorists” might be Islamophobic.
“Paging Mr Orwell, the BBC needs you to slap some sense into them,” responded popular YouTuber Sargon of Akkad.
“No that would be absolutely stupid. Get a grip,” remarked another Twitter user.
“If you don’t name them, they’ll cease to exist, right?” added another.
It’s no surprise that this comes from the BBC, an organization that is so politically correct it actively discourages white people from applying for jobs in order to make itself more ‘ethnically diverse’.
However, the mere notion that the words “Islamist” and “terrorist” should be censored because they don’t accurately “categorise the atrocities for what they are,” is totally absurd and suggests that the BBC thinks some terrorist atrocities are actually justified and that terrorists shouldn’t be called the pejorative term “terrorist”.
Absolute unbridled insanity.
The ransomware was discovered by security researchers at Trustwave. It discovered the network of “malvertising” after noticing that several of its products were detecting a suspicious-looking file being downloaded by major news sites.
Trustwave looked at the ownership history of brentsmedia.com, discovering it has only recently changed hands. Its previous owner, a legitimate advertising company called BrentsMedia, failed to renew its contract in January, putting the domain up for public sale.
It was reregistered on March 6 under the name of a “Pavel G Astahov.” It appears the new owners are trying to use the reputation of BrentsMedia to infiltrate ad providers and force websites to host malicious content.
The infected ads were delivered through “at least” two networks used by some of the world’s largest websites. Trustwave commended adnxs for their quick response to the issue, blacklisting the adverts within an hour of being contacted. A second provider, taggify, had not replied by the time Trustwave publicly detailed the issue on March 14
Known as “malvertising,” the attack is designed to exploit vulnerabilities on a user’s computer before encrypting their hard drive and demanding a bitcoin ransom in order to unlock it.
“If a user’s computer is vulnerable, the ad will download the Angular exploit kit and injects it into the webpage, providing the ransomware’s creators with the ability to lock the computer user’s files,” writes James Walker ofDigital Journal.
As noted by internet security software company Malwarebytes, the malvertising campaign targeted some of the web’s largest news websites which reach billions of users collectively.
Dr Gerhard Knies co-founded TREC, a network of experts on sustainable energy that gave rise to the Desertec initiative, which aimed to provide Europe with clean energy by harnessing sustainable power from sun-rich deserts.
“Fifteen minutes after I learned about the nuclear accident at Chernobyl, I made an assessment of how much energy comes from the sun to the earth. It was about 15,000 times as much as humanity was using, so it was not a question of the source, it was a question of the technology.
A former BBC journalist found hanged in a toilet cubicle at a Turkish airport had mourned the deaths of three colleagues in terror attacks in just a month and attended a memorial to one of them days before her death, it emerged today.

Jacky Sutton, an international development worker, was found dead at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport after missing a connecting flight to Erbil in Iraq.
She appeared distressed after being told by airline staff that she would have to buy a new ticket and was later found in the toilets by three Russian passengers, according to local media.
At the end of April, Ms Sutton posted on her Facebook page the story of Sabeen Mahmud, a human rights campaigner who was killed by a gunman in Karachi, Pakistan.
Just weeks later, her predecessor at the Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR), Ammar Al Shahbander, was killed in an Islamic State bomb blast in Baghdad on May 2.
