Posted on 01/06/2013 6:55:51 AM PST by Patriot95
he Muslim advocacy group Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is asking the nations media to make this their new years resolution: Stop using the word Islamist.
Ibrahim Hooper, CAIRs communications director, explained in a Jan. 3 op-ed why his group is upset the Associated Press added the term to its latest stylebook, a document that guides reporters worldwide. Hooper wrote:
That entry reads: Islamist Supporter of government in accord with the laws of Islam. Those who view the Quran as a political model encompass a wide range of Muslims, from mainstream politicians to militants known as jihadi.
The AP says it sought input from Arabic-speaking experts and hoped to provide a neutral perspective by emphasizing the wide range of religious views encompassed in the term. Many Muslims who wish to serve the public good are influenced by the principles of their faith. Islam teaches Muslims to work for the welfare of humanity and to be honest and just. If this inspiration came from the Bible, such a person might well be called a Good Samaritan. But when the source is the Quran, the person is an Islamist.
Unfortunately, the term Islamist has become shorthand for Muslims we dont like. It is currently used in an almost exclusively pejorative context and is often coupled with the term extremist, giving it an even more negative slant.

Okay CAIR, we'll start calling them Muhammadans.
I suppose “goat-humpers” is right out...
Or goat-humping Muhammadans.
Jihadists it is then.
“Evolutionary Throwbacks” has a nice ring to it.
Allah & muslims should stop using words like infidels, kuffers, & nonbelievers as terms of hatred on all humanity.
I like the term Muhama-hama-hama-didians. It’s like mary-j-u-wanna.

Goat buggering islamderthals?
It was. POS is short and sweet.
Ibrahim Hooper can kiss my royal Irish azz.
Terrorists it is then. Was just trying to be nice with Islamist.
Let me rewrite this:
The Islamist Muslim agitator group Council on American-Islamist Relations (CAIR) is asking the nations dhimmi media to make this their new years resolution: Stop using the word Christian.
Ibrahim Hooper, CAIRs Islamist communications director, explained in a Jan. 3 op-ed why his group is upset the Associated Press added the term to its latest stylebook, a document that guides reporters worldwide. Hooper wrote:
“Christians worship a false god, the Mohammedan prophet Jesus, who was not God, but a prophet, and one claimed by Islam as a prophet. Being infidels, they have no right or claim to an Islamic prophet in any form, as they are descended from unclean pigs and dogs. Likewise they have no claim to any parts of any Muslim lands on which they have built their heretical and blasphemous temples and atheist edifices.
“And Muslim lands now include the entirety of Africa, Europe, Asia, and Oceania, as well as large portions of North and South America that are and will become Muslim lands in the near future.”
How about ‘Shariaists’?
PIeces of Sunni?
Muslims we don’t like? You mean the ones who really believe it is their religious duty to impose Islam’s Three Demands upon all unbelievers: Convert, Submit or Die?
Or do you mean Muslims who believe in the traditional definition of “jiihad”, that Muslims who die while bringing death to infidels are given a priority boarding pass to the afterlife, which appears to me to be a big brothel. Those Muslims?
Or do you mean those Muslims who accept the Islamic teaching of “taqiyya”, a word that means that a Muslim can tell any lie if it advances Islam. Or maybe those Muslims who believe they must not make any friends among those who do not believe?
Or those Muslims who divide the world into two parts: The part under Islam’s control that they call “Dar al-Islam”, meaning “land of peace”, and the part they call “Dar al-harb “, meaning “land of war”. So when Muslims call Islam the “religion of peace” they are referring to lands and peoples under the control of Islam only. And the only way for you, oh unbeliever, to not have Muslims constantly committing war against you is for you to accept Islam and be at peace?
Or the kind of Muslims who are obligated to kill anyone in cold blood who insults Islam?
Those kind of Muslims? Or a kind who cannot quite bring themselves to obey the Koran, and the Hadith and Sunnah?

How about “camel fornicators”?

Others who use this ploy are: feminists, blacks, marxists, college professors, abortionists, socialists, and journalists.
