CAIR, an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas infrastructure in America, is on a mission to bully public officials to end their use of descriptive words which accurately describes the Islamist march forward. Words like Islamists, Islamism, Islamic terrorism, islamofacist, and so on are big no nos with this Islamist organization.
CAIR fails to make the distinction between religious Islam and Islamism. One is the simple practice of a non-political religion the other is the political structure and rules for Islamic supremacy wrapped into Islam. The components for each are in the Quran. Making this distinction is critical to understanding Islamism but, of course, CAIR only seeks to blend the two together so any criticism about Islamism can then be called an insult to Islam, itself.
Their latest victim is Congressman Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) of California:
... In his June and July newsletters, Royce says, "Given the threat from Islamist terrorism facing our country, we need to be acting urgently to protect the United States every day."
The term "Islamist terrorism" also makes an appearance in "e-newsletters" from Royce titled "Victory for U.S. Intelligence," dated July 15, and "How to Close the Terrorist Loophole," on June 24, as well as on Royce’s website.
A letter, initiated by the Council on American-Islamic Relations and signed by various interfaith leaders, was sent to Royce’s Fullerton office in early August urging him to use alternative terminology such as "violent extremists" when discussing the War on Terrorism, in order to prevent polarization of one specific religious group. CAIR
CAIR, cleverly has gotten other, generally, liberal religious organizations to join in with their efforts.
Even the Department of Homeland Security has been advised by a Muslim input group not use these words!
This is dangerous for America.
