US Muslims bristle at Bush term "Islamic fascists" Thu Aug 10, 2006 3:07 PM ET
By Amanda Beck
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Muslim groups criticized President George W. Bush on Thursday for calling a foiled plot to blow up airplanes part of a "war with Islamic fascists," saying the term could inflame anti-Muslim tensions.
U.S. officials have said the plot, thwarted by Britain, to blow up several aircraft over the Atlantic bore many of the hallmarks of al Qaeda.
"We believe this is an ill-advised term and we believe that it is counter-productive to associate Islam or Muslims with fascism," said Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations advocacy group.
"We ought to take advantage of these incidents to make sure that we do not start a religious war against Islam and Muslims," he told a news conference in Washington.
"We urge him (Bush) and we urge other public officials to restrain themselves."
Awad said U.S. officials should take the lead from their British counterparts who had steered clear of using what he considered inflammatory terms when they announced the arrest of more than 20 suspects in the reported plot.
Hours after the news broke, Bush said it was "a stark reminder that this nation is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation."

I agree--I much prefer "Islamofascists."
I thought he said 'radicals'.
How about 'Fascistic Islamists'?
Well as the prophet once said, "If the shoe fits, you probably don't have enough explosives in it".
Guess it hit a little too close to home.
What in the world do they want us to call this???..just the religion of peace at work????
I second that!
I was at wrk while Bush made his speech today, so I did not get to hear it. But, if CAIR is pissed, it must hav been on the right track.
Islamic Nazis would have worked as well IMO.
CAIR is evil.
I am sick that there are things called American Mooselimbs!
I 'bristle' at that term also; I prefer IslamoCommies.
The irony had to be visible dripping from Mr. Awad's mouth.
I'd prefer the term Islamic National Socialism. Islamic fascism implies a well-thought out political and economic system, not merely a cult worship of death, destruction, and power.
Ah well, this makes so much sense as "Islamikazi freaked-out wackos" has already been taken.
I prefer cannon fodder
My grandmother used to say "hit pigeons flutter"
How about Islamic terrorists? Islamic killers?
What do these people what? They are Islamic. Deal with it.
Maybe we all would not think that the word is quite alright if CAIR ever came out condemning the acts instead of those who talk about them.
Dear US Muslims:
GET OVER IT. If so-called Muslim "moderates" continue to be in denial about their Islamofascist brethren who are out to destroy Western civilization, then please SHUT UP when our president states the obvious. Funny how all terrorists, homicide bombers, Hezbollah, etc all have one thing in common...they're all Muslims!
The Muzzies doth protest too much, methinks.
Damn our President, he's going to start WW4 by hurting someone's feelings. We all know Chia Head Kim Chong Il and Mad Dog Ahmad from Iran only went forward with developing nukes because George Bush hurt their feelings when he called them part of the axis of evil.
Here, let me do my part:
Tony Snow will be issuing an apology in time for the evening network newscasts.
And plotting to kill thousands of innocents doesn't?
That would be a perfect graphic of it said cult of peace instead of religion.
Comes close to perfect though. Good job.
The phrase "tough shite" comes to mind
When I read that some of their Islamofacists friends are trying to murder civilians I get a little inflamed myself. So what I'm saying is I don't care if they get their little turbans in a twist.
How about "BLOODTHIRSTY MOHAMMADIANS", then?
Sheesh, file this under the "IF THEY KILL OVER SOME STUPID CARTOONS, THEY WILL GO NUCLEAR IF THEY ARE CALLED FASCISTS" file.
How about Islamic-murdering-barbarian bastards?
That ought to excite them.
Deport them now. They are not open to discussion of what the problem is. The first step to solving a problem...is realizing you have one. This is insantiy to let these people stay here.
What are we supposed to call them, "The Knights of Allah?" It's a fairly descriptive phrase. Or would CAIR prefer we just say "Muslims" when we mean terrorists.
This first reaction from CAIR just confirms my thoughts about them.

inflict such a defeat as would terrorize them,
so that they would learn a lesson and be warned.
