George Johnson: Don’t call terrorists ‘Muslims’

Perhaps it’s time to stop calling the terrorists “Muslim extremists.” It has been pointed out by Muslims all over the world that Islam calls for peace, brotherhood and tolerance.

So let’s not devalue Islam by calling these monsters Muslims. Can’t we find another term?

It might make a difference if the news reported, “A Jewish synogogue in France was bombed today by corrupt perverts, once again proving their determination to disgrace the Prophet Muhammad and destroy the Islamic faith all across the world.”

Violence in the name of God just sickens the heart.
