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."

You know what else might inflame tensions? Muslims trying to blow us up. Tell you what, CAIR, you do something about that, and we'll ask George to pick another word.

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.

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!

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.

"war with Islamic fascists," saying the term could inflame anti-Muslim tensions.

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.

WTF is this stinkin ahole of an idiot talking about here? I am understanding correctly that he is asserting that we should take advantage of Muslim terrorists' planned attacks to ensure that we don't fight back? To hell with him and CAIR!

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.

So wound their bodies and incapacitate them
because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”

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

I suppose it would be useless to present CAIR with the facts of who has been responsible for the vast majority of terrorist acts around the World in the last 40 years or so.

I cheered when I heard the President say this. Finally no TROP crap. What part of what he said isn't true? They are Islamic and they are Facists. They are not Methodists Pacifists. Not Moonies. Why does the truth hurt CAIR so much? They can stick it up their *ss.
