Imagine in 1940 and 1941 if British media coverage of The Blitz never identified who was bombing Britain and why. All its coverage was on the order of “Airplanes bombed England for the tenth straight day,” etc., with no indication that there was a war on, or who was fighting.
That is what this story is like, and it is typical of media coverage of jihad activity. This woman was arrested on suspicion of funding terrorism. What kind of terrorism? No telling. Part of the global jihad? The Telegraph doesn’t deign to tell us, although it does give us a hint by adding the bit at the end about the Muslim who was arrested at the airport.
This is why we’re in the fix we’re in. How can we win a war when few even know there is a war on, and when everyone is afraid to identify properly what exactly we’re fighting?
