Renaming the "war on terror"

Reader comment on item: America's Crash Course on Islam

Submitted by Jewish Survival (United States), Sep 11, 2007 at 15:52

Pipes writes, "the phrase 'war on terror,' widely accepted six years ago, is now generally seen as obsolete because it confuses a tactic with an enemy (though the term continues to be used due to the lack of consensus on a replacement)"

We have long advocated, and practiced, calling it The Anti-Jihad War.
