Islamist Group Tries to Kill Use of “Islamist”

After doing everything it can to ensconce a new word, “Islamophobia,” into conversational English, the nation's most visible Islamist group is trying to stop use of a well-established word: Islamist. Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) national spokesman Ibrahim Hooper released a column urging journalists to “(d)rop the term ‘Islamist.’”

It was added to the latest Associated Press Stylebook—the guide for spelling, punctuation and other rules—that is used by journalists at the smallest community papers and the largest television networks, Hooper wrote. AP defines Islamists as “Those who view the Quran as a political model encompass a wide range of Muslims, from mainstream politicians to militants known as jihadi.”

Journalists should ignore that, Hooper argued, because it is used in a negative way, and used by “Islam-bashers” who really hate the faith of Islam but want to cover their tracks. “Yet they fail to explain how a practicing Muslim can be active in the political arena without attracting the label ‘Islamist.’” …

Hmmm ..

Let's think about this;

Why not take a page from obama's playbook ...

They can't get rid of the American, so they destroy America ... no America, no American


If we get rid of islam there will be no islamist.

I like it

The Muslims have a usefull Idiot in John Brennan who Obama wants to make the head of the CIA. Brennan wants to change our language also, so as not to offend the Islamist Jihadists:

a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.

Islam is a death cult that’s declared religious order is to murder and torture all non cult members on earth. It is killing MILLIONS of people yearly. As the definition of phobia is an IRRATIONAL fear, Islamophobia is impossible.

Then stop slicing necks off of living people while chanting religious ditties and making movies of the event to post on youtube for other savages to watch while eating halal popcorn.

and Obama WILL find a way to write it into law, as he already has in several areas.

From a recent email “.....for the unknowing”

The intent of the following is not to depress you , however, make you so you can also enable others to be aware and hopefully they will act. Awareness, education and knowledge are all great tools. Many say this doesnt affect me..... but, do you have kids? Grandchildren? Respect for our forefathers who fought to make and keep America?

On Obama’s Marxism.... we have been stealthed. Most of America is not aware as to exactly what has happened. This documentary explains it best.... Agenda: Grinding America Down....

On Islam and Christian history... the best short little summary of the last 1400 years on, “Why We are Afraid, a 1400 Year Secret”....

If slavery is of interest, you can see Islams hand in slavery.... and how they built large armies of Africans for the front line so the Arabs could wipe out Christians and Jews all around the Mediterranean “1400 years of brutal black slavery” ....

To understand its impact on other cultures , we can look at India....”Indian Genocide, over 80 Million Killed” also on youtube....

Then to look at America and the Rabbi’s understanding of another strong contributing factor for Obama’s successes.... look at

If you are familiar with Obama and his construction of his North African caliphate and backing of the Muslim Brotherhood, you can see that he is aligning the whole mid east as proxies for his attack on Israel. Mark my words, whatever happens to Israel happens to America and Europe, but not necessarily in that order.
Obama and Islam....

That thread is FULL of hot links which get the point across.

And needless to say as you did earlier, a lot can be said about the disaster that has hit the US of A. America has basically been lost for now unless we help one another stand it up again. As the video Agenda: Grinding America down points out that once the US of A is gone, it will be a long, long time before those liberties, rights freedoms and beliefs surface again. By letting Obama continue unchallenged, he is leading the civilized world into his caverns of Islam. I believe that before he is done, he will have allowed his brethren to have many large scale attacks on American soil.

If the Society of Professional "Journalists" has not already submitted they soon will.

On Oct. 6, 2001 at its National Convention in Seattle, the Society of Professional Journalists passed a resolution urging members and fellow journalists to take steps against racial profiling in their coverage of the war on terrorism . . . .

"When writing about terrorism, remember to include white supremacist, radical anti-abortionists and other groups with a history of such activity."

Back then the "journalists" even said use the word Islamist; "[avoid words like] 'Muslim extremist' that are misleading because they link whole religions to criminal activity. Be specific: Alternate choices, depending on context, include 'Al Qaeda terrorists' or, to describe the broad range of groups involved in Islamic politics, 'political Islamists'."

Most employees of the MSM are skid marks on Journalism's shorts and they will never ask CAIR: If the words ISLAMISM, ISLAMISTS are so offensive to Muslims how come millions of Muslims in Turkey use the words to protest Islamism and sharia law? Tens of millions do not want either.
