    ""Never use the terms 'jihadist' or 'mujahedin' ... to describe the terrorists," instructs the guide. "A mujahed, a holy warrior, is a positive characterization in the context of a just war. In Arabic, jihad means 'striving in the path of God' and is used in many contexts beyond warfare. Calling our enemies Jihadis and their movement a global Jihad unintentionally legitimizes their actions."

    How clearly it states that calling a Jihad, or Holy Warrior, an "Islamic TERRORIST" as I stated, would piss Islamist off. It in no way "legitimizes actions." They are, in the eyes of Islam, HOLY WARRIORS. I never said Bush was right in not using the term. I said he did it as a way to stop offending as well. If you want to believe they no longer use the term because of "legitimizing" be my guest. Believe whatever you want. Funny how most can say Bush lied about everything, but but I guess not this, right?

    Ok, and that, if true was wrong too. Still doesn't excuse Obama

    That's because they are not Muslims, they are barbarians.

    First the 'problem' isn't a religion but a few terrorists who pervert a religion in an attempt to gain cover for their incredible vicious power grab.

    Second, that a few CONs are hellbent on calling these terrorists Muslim doesn't change the equation.

    Third, calling the Japanese slurs during WWII didn't 'help' in the final victory... amazing science did...

    Fourth, the President did 'dare utter the problem'- that he didn't phrase it the way a few way out CONs wished is on you....

    Re: Obama refuses to acknowledge ‘Muslim terrorists’ at summit

    Is Christianity at war with equality because they don't believe in same sex marriage?

    Is Christianity at war with a woman's right to choose because they don't believe in abortion?

    Was Christianity at war with American blacks and other Americans of color as it was Christianity was used to legitimize slavery and segregation?


    I'd say no. I'd say it just a bunch of asshats that are twisting religion to get motive people to empower them. The same applies to ISIS.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Just because you want to give ISIS what it wants, worldwide recognition that it is Islam's true representative and is fighting a muslim holy war against the west, does not mean Obama will go along with it. You can praise ISIS to the rooftops for their "religious purity" if you want but sane people will recognize them for the thugs and criminals they are.

    That's not even true, though. Obama said “And we are not at war with Islam. We are at war with people who have perverted Islam." So you're reading tabloid garbage meant to get you all fired up and it's working. With all the legitimate issues to talk about, you're focused on whether or not Obama will say that terrorists are terrorists because their god is different? You want him to say that their religion makes them kill us and we believe in the correct god who is the only god of peace? I don't understand what you want.
