Skip to comments.AP Pussyfoots Around Extremism, Revises Use of the Word ‘Islamist'

Rather than focusing on the real issues here, the AP is doing everything in its power to avoid pointing out the relationship between radical Islamists and terrorism. Similar to the Benghazi terror attack, in which the media found every possible angle to focus on other than the link between Islamic extremists and the attacks. They pointed to Mitt Romney for his statements, they pointed to Newsweeks Muslim Rage cover, at the author, Ayaan Ali Hirsi, and they pointed it at an obscure film that was at that time unknown to the general public.
The relationship between radical Islam and terrorism has been consistent and perpetual, and it has long been evident prior to today.
During the Iran hostage crisis in 1979. At the World Trade Center bombing in 1993. At the embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998. With the USS Cole bombing in 2000. At the Fort Hood massacre in 2009. And of course, September 11th.
This to name a few.
The rage is tangible, and it is very closely associated with radical Islamists.
What the left clearly needs are more people of reason, more people like Kirsten Powers who wrote at the time of the Benghazi attack:
We were attacked because there are crazy religious fanatics who hate the United States. We didnt ask for it.
Say it along with her Crazy. Religious. Fanatics.

Who’s coming after them that they feel they have to resort to such extreme measures?
All muslims are potential mass murderers.
Having said that, America and Europe has spawned cells of home-grown terrorists like Bernadette Dorn and Angela Davis.
They’re ALL creatures that beg for the death penalty!
Yet - look for the terms of white supremacist and right wing, white supremacist to saturate the airwaves and articles in the coming weeks and months.
Saudis have been buying into US media to shut down some news/documentaries.
What’s their level of investment in AP?
It’s as though they hate us for our love of their oil...which for most of us, is no love at all.
Rush was on the APs case about this. The thing that I wish he would do is to read
People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. It is impossible indeed to prevent such meetings, by any law which either could be executed, or would be consistent with liberty and justice. But though the law cannot hinder people of the same trade from sometimes assembling together, it ought to do nothing to facilitate such assemblies; much less to render them necessary.We have precisely what Smith predicted - the AP and its membership is, quite literally, a conspiracy against the public. Its putative mission of conserving transmission bandwidth in the propagation of the news is, in modern times, an anachronism because bandwidth is dirt cheap. The AP should be sued into oblivion. The FCC should also be sued for its licensing of broadcasters based on their carrying wire service journalism.

“The relationship between radical Islam and terrorism has been consistent and perpetual, and it has long been evident prior to today.”
How about all the way back to 622 AD?
Islam has ALWAYS been radical, and Moslems have ALWAYS BEEN and STILL ARE TERRORISTS!
Softening the language will not soften the killing and terrorism perpetrated on a naive world.
Unless and until we admit who and what these evil people are, and pledge to defeat them, we will continue to suffer terrorist outrages throughout the world.
WAKE UP WESTERN WORLD! THEY ARE COMING FOR YOU!
