US Muslims bristle at Bush term "Islamic fascists" [Council on American-Islamic Relations.......]

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."

CAIR has absolutely no idea of the size and anger of the beast out there, in terms of a BACKLASH by many in America to THEIR backlash. They arereallystarting to urinate in the wind on this one.

I think you're right. And I hope so! But in the Muslim American community, I don't know how many truly support what goes on for or against us. And some of the Muslims in America seem to be supportive of the Islamo fascists tacitly, for their own well being. Not because they're fans, but because they're concerned about their futures. It's a closed community and who wants to be the one to shout out against the terror? -cue crickets - That's right, so far, not many. I don't believe they all agree with the terrorists, at least it doesn't seem so with fully 'Americanized' families, but who can know for sure? Cair needs to be careful, like you said, their base and the power over that base could erode quickly. Here's to hoping it's soon.

Let me add to your catalog of Islamofacist atrocities. Cair whines about being offended? Well I'm offended at any so-called religion that celebrates something called Ashoura If the adults want to flagellate themselves with chains and cut themselves with swords over some dude who died in A.D. 680, I say go for it. But when they do the same to their own infants and small children, I say destroy this horrific thing called Islamofacism:

CAIR can kiss my rear end.

What have they to complain about, bush said islamic "fascist," not islamists in general (though we all know how that goes, wink wink).

When they condemn anti semitic acts in general as a whole, then they have something to talk about, but for now, SHUT YOUR PIE HOLE

You know- they're right.
There are no Islamofacists. Just everyday, regular Muslims.
These are no different than the ones running your local convenience store, and those are no different than the 'terrorists'. CAIR says so.
Good enough for me!

They are always "offended" at the truth, cartoon or defining the war on terror.
They will never address their cancer of standing by their radicals or helping their radicals, yes, it is Islamofasciosm, they say Bush's remark will "inflate", My Gosh the only ones INFLATING emotions are the Muslim butchers, no one else.

great post but I thought according to the left it is all Bush fault my god I think they forgot history if they look back at the beginning I think we can see all the president during the time were Dems, and Republicans maybe we should send those dates to the morans who think this just started when Bush became President.
I remember the Munich days, I remember the Pope, I remember the Cole the first trade center bombing so this problem has been going on for along time.

So they're concerned about a possible "holy war"?

If I recall isn't that what they want? Then by all means let's oblige them -- give them all the war they want.

When sub-humans chant religious songs and cry "allahu akhbar" while murdering innocent people by slowly slicing their heads off they are islamic fascists and terrorists.
When sub-humans torture children in a school and murder some of them, they are islamic fascists and terrorists.
When sub-humans fly occupied airplanes into occupied buildings, they are islamic fascists and terrorists.
Rembember: Madrid, London, Paris metro St Michel (forgot that one, eh?), Seattle.
They have one thing in common. They aren't Irish nuns or Swedish soccer players. They are islamic fascists and terrorists.
Until this country expels them and keeps others from infiltrating the USA, we will have more death and destruction.

I hope it DOES inflame anti-Muslim tensions. Muslims are the TERRORISTS. I get so tired of hearing the mantra "not all Muslims are terrorists..." The Koran is a wartext that describes how to kill/maim/enslave/punish anyone who is not a Muslim. The few lines that show some sort of decent thought have been abrogated by all the later texts contrary to what the lefties would have us believe when they cherry-pick these miniscule examples. This is not a religion, it's a death cult started by a pedophile who gathered up some bedouins and attacked the people that basically ex-communicated him for his false beliefs.

What fish did you drive?

The Brits refer to them as "Individuals of Asian Descent" which RIGHTFULLY angers their Chinese, Indian, Korean, Japanese, etc. citizens!

Of course..., everyday..., our media fails to identify who is being sought for crimes..., limiting their description to "three young men", etc. (unless they happen to be white, of course)!

I made a point of e-mailing the White House to let them know how pleased I was to hear President Bush use the correct term to describe just whom we are at war with.

Very good.
I was quite busy yesterday but I will make a point to do the same today!
