What is the benefit of saying "radical extremist" as opposed to "Islamic extremist?"


Is it less offense to Muslims to hear "extremist" instead of "Islamic terrorist?" Does debate over what to call it add fuel to the fire?

    What's up with that photo? I had to read your comment three times before I could figure out if I agreed with you.

    Thank you Tsad! Do you think Islam will try to isolate ISIS since the barbaric killing of the Jordanian pilot. It is incomprehensible that those creeps would stand around calmly, watching him die.

    Several Muslim commentators on CNN say that it doesn't matter which term you use. One said terrorists will always find one excuse or another to blame the US. I thought the distinction was made to keep Muslims from being targeted for who they are.

    Yes, if you want to hide your head in the sand and pretend you don't have cancer.
