Reuters: "Random Violent Crime" Is the New Euphemism for Likely Islamism-Inspired Terrorism

An Islamic Algerian man attempted to force a Norwegian airliner to crash using an axe he apparently smuggled aboard.

How are we sure he was attempting to crash the plane? Well, we don't have much evidence of that, except what he screamed out in lunatic rage:

"I’m going to crash this plane," screamed the asylum applicant[.]

Travelling Shoes notes that Reuters, ever alert for actions of a "militant" sort (like crashing passenger jets), offers the following paliative at the story's close:

Random violent crime is rare in the Nordic nation...

As it is in most nations, actually.

You know what's not quite so rare?

"Militant attacks." And/or "insurgency actions." Those aren't so rare as "random violent crime."
