    Is the term 'Radical Islam' inaccurate?

    "The White House tried to explain Tuesday why it has refused to use the term “radical Islam” in describing the Islamist terrorists responsible for last week’s Paris attacks and other acts of violence across the globe."

    Is the term "Radical Islam" inaccurate? If so then why? If not then why?

    I believe it IS accurate. The violent acts were carried out in the name of Islam. Third party reports usually state that those that carry out the acts state they are doing so in the name of Islam and radical Islamic groups such as ISIS and AQ have gone on record as initiating and claiming responsibility for terrorist acts in the name of Islam. Therefore, Yes it is accurate. It is what it is... we really should come to terms with that.

    NO.

    The religion, as created by its founder, IS radical. Not all professing Muslims STRICTLY practice the faith, but the MAJORITY support those who do.

    The religion is a cancer that needs to be wiped out.

    Remember this..it says it all about Islam:

    Most people can't think, most of the remainder won't think, the small fraction who do think mostly can't do it very well. The extremely tiny fraction who think regularly, accurately, creatively, and without self-delusion- in the long run these are the only people who count... Robert Heinlein

    So far it looks like we're arriving at a consensus here... that it is what it is.

    I agree Peggy... the Christian who kills in the name of his faith, such as the militant anti-abortion crowd, are Christians... just a radical flavor.

    It'll be interesting to see just how this thread pans out...

    Re: Is the term 'Radical Islam' inaccurate?

    Since we appear to reaching a consensus here... So...

    Is the White House wrong in taking this position?

    Personally, I think they are. It shows a complete lack of the ability to look a problem such as this in the eye and call it what it is. They are too afraid they might offend someone.

    It's a political move to safeguard possible votes in 2016.

    Re: Is the term 'Radical Islam' inaccurate?

    One thing that I find interesting on this subject is that those who are so hesitant to recognize the evil in radical Islam, or to even call it such, are the same people screaming from the roof tops about the "Evil" they find in our local law enforcement. They have no compunction about shedding a bad light on and even slandering the police for the incidents they are involved in. But to those same people even the idea of radical Islam doing evil in the name of Islam is a concept to be discredited.

    That would be correct, Paul.
    This is all orchestrated semantics.....Obama-style. The master manipulator doesn't want to be perceived as stepping on any Islamic toes. His actions and in-actions make him appear to be everything to everyone, which most intelligent folks know is impossible.

    You and I both know that this deficit is born of their agenda which would re-align them with their target base.....the poor folks of color who hate the police, and this group's uber Liberal, white "right-fighter" marching partners.

    But to those same people even the idea of radical Islam doing evil in the name of Islam is a concept to be discredited.
    Right now, this group is occupied with their agenda.....fight the local power, in order to get a certain quantity of national power. The power of the victim is most prestigious these days.

    The "Cheerleader-In-Chief" just loves to see this anarchy in the streets. I'd be willing to bet he has a little twinkle in his eye, a spring in his step, and occasionally his voice breaks with glee when he thinks of all the crises that aren't going to waste in places much like New York, and Ferguson, Mo.

    Radical Islam is no different than Radical Catholic

    Tim McVeigh comes to mind as he grew up in that clan and is white

    For clarity... so you're saying you are in agreement with the consensus in this thread. The term 'radical Islam' is inaccurate.

    -----------------
    Do not agree.

    The Administration does not want to legitimise the terrorists or their warped views of Islam.

    Warped does not mean radical.

    Radical suggests thought or action to bring about reform.
    Warped is twisted and sick.

    but SURELY this is NO different then so called "christains" who experience a tragedy due to a CRIME demanding the DEATH PENALTY so they can find "closure"!? going to church and obeying the laws of the land does NOT make you a christian even if claiming you are 1!? take yourself for INSTANCE!? vengeance is MINE sayeth the lord of hosts!? you, like the devil, want to BEAT him to IT?! or in other words, denying him his absolute AUTHORITY!? it's the PRIMARY sign of CARNALITY!? religion is the knowledge of GRACE not the knowledge of the LAW which is a SUBVERTED imitation of GRACE!? ::judges::spin2::

    I think this is an argument of schematics. Extreme,radical,(insert thesaurus), etc
    It all goes without saying. People are so scared and apathetic to stand up to these terrorists.
