How Will the EU Lexicon Filter This?

From the Jerusalem Post:

Less than two hours before the 17th Knesset was sworn in on Monday afternoon, terror struck in southern Tel Aviv as a suicide bomber blew himself up in a crowd at the entrance to a fast food stand, killing nine people and wounding close to 70 others.

Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the bombing that ripped through the Rosh Ha'ir shwarma stand on Rehov Salome in the southern Tel Aviv neighborhood of Neveh Sha'anan, not far from the old Tel Aviv central bus station. The same restaurant was hit in a similar suicide attack three months ago, injuring 20 people.
With the EU wanting to institute word filters on its officials and member countries in order to avoid irritating or embarrassing Muslims (thus also avoiding potentially murderous rampages by those irritated,) terms such as "Islamic terrorism" will be taboo. Other words that might make Islam's followers appear to be violent such as "Islamist," "jihad," and "fundamentalist" will also be expunged.

So, when a murdering pig member of Islamic Jihad blows up a bunch of innocent people, will the EU even be able to report or acknowledge who the perpetrator was or who he represented, or will they, in perfect J.K. Rowling fashion, simply blame it on "they who must not be named"?
