Obama says that saying the name "Radical Islam" won't make a difference. Well, if it won't make a difference, why not just say the name? The mentality here is that if we call it what it is (Islamic Terrorist attack), the "peaceful" Muslims will get mad and do more damage to us. Well...being that there have been more terror attacks anyway, I'd say that mentality is wrong--wouldn't you?

Buddhists in Thailand, Catholics in Philippines, Christians in Egypt and Pakistan, animists in Nigeria - all subject to terrorist attacks by Muslims. The problem is Islam's desire to conquer the world - and being afraid of that is not irrational.
And peace loving non-extremist Muslims subjected to hate, abuse and violence from those who don't understand Extremist Islam is not all Muslims. Ignoring extremism can come from anywhere is dangerous too. Never said it was irrational, tho.
