US Muslims bristle at Bush term "Islamic fascists" Thu Aug 10, 2006 3:07 PM ET

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."

Would they prefer Satanic Towelheads?
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.
"If only 10% of Muslims are radical, that's still 120 million who want to kill us."
i've completely had it with islam's perpetual sensitivities, the unhealable ego wound. if it's going to be war, let's stop playing games and do it.
Grandma was a wise woman.
If I had a nickel for every time one of those CAIR morons likened Israel to fascism and/or Nazism...well, you all get the idea.
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
All the more reason; other than slaughtering the local peasantry, there is nothing these lefties enjoy more than killing their fellow lefties.
I bet you could probably name a couple of dozen. Somebody up this thread said it better than me.
It's not bigoted if the facts are there.
Remember that Jesus warned against the time when false prophets would appear. Muhammed is an example of false prophets.
From Michael Barnes to Cair:
Schuck it, schuck it loong; schuck it haaard.
< /sean connery accent>
I think it was very appropriate.
"It's time we recognized the nature of the conflict. It's total war and we are all involved. Nobody on our side is exempted because of age, gender, or handicap. The Islamofacists have stolen childhood from the world." [FReeper Retief]
ISLAMIC TERRORIST FACIST SCUM! is that more exact?
<< the term could inflame anti-Muslim tensions. >>
Sooner rather than later we will wish it would.
How about.......SATANIC MUSLO-TERRORISTS? Islam is authored and supported by Satan himself! The Koran rivals Hitler's Mein Kampf.
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!
I have a few choice words that they wouldn't like either. That's just tough!
prairiebreeze has taken to calling them "dirty muslim bastards".
Wonder what they think about that.
Islamic fascist pride goes before defeat.
finally someone calls it like it is and if the group Care
or what ever the name is gets upset to bad this is america we have freedom of speech and frankly it is not my 90 year old grandmother doing this who did they just catch in England were they Catholic, Baptist, Mormans NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!so finally Bush called it like it is
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.
I prefer ( coined by me) Islambies.
I'll pimp my tag and the caller one more time.
OH, and the Islamic fascists can kiss my fundament.
Good reference thread bump ...for am. Nite.
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.
A pity General Sherman isn't around.
Finally he pronounced a big word exactly right!
Well, Nihad ol boy, speaking of inflamatory rhetoric and all...
Why are you a supporter of Cynthia McKinney and what's with the timing?

In the tape I heard of Bush it sounded more like "Islamofascists" than "Islamic fascists"
President George W. Bush on Thursday for calling a foiled plot to blow up airplanes part of a war with Islam.
...Let's be more specific.
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.
"We ought to take advantage of these incidents to make sure that we do not start a religious war against Islam and Muslims,"
a guy who wants to give and not receive, man oh man does this joker need to read a few books other then the koran...
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?
Please see post #290 for my take on this crap.
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 was quite busy yesterday but I will make a point to do the same today!
Sometimes the truth just hurts, doesn't it?
Thanks. I got a little fired up this a.m. Guess I hadn't had enough caffeine and/or nicotene. I've had it with these terror-sponsors trying to hide behind OUR Constitution.
