from jihadwatch:

"MSNBC will readily use the words 'Sharia' and 'jihad' to refer negatively to conservative policies in the U.S.: opposing abortion is imposing Sharia, and cutting food stamp programs is a jihad. But MSNBC would never dream of using Sharia or jihad in a negative way in connection with Muslims, even though that is their actual context, when Muslims themselves are carrying out stonings and amputations in the name of Sharia or blowing up innocent people in the name of jihad. In those instances they work to obscure the motives and even the identity of the perpetrators, and bring in smooth Western Muslim spokesmen to assure us that the Islamic Republic of Iran or Dzhokhar Tsarnaev or whoever committed the latest atrocity represents only a tiny minority, and that the overwhelming majority of Muslims understand Sharia and jihad in an entirely benign way.

"But their analogous use of these terms to criticize Republicans and conservatives betrays the fact that they actually know full well what they mean ..."

Chris Matthew's legs tingle when he hears the word "jihad".
