Why then keep up this pretention that islam is different from islamism?

Islam is like a clump of poison coated with honey, or, islam is like poison mixed and hidden in honey, or islam is like a clump of poison coated with poisoned honey. Differentiating between islam and islamism is self-deceit.

Liberal muslims and soft-islamics camouflage islam's fascism and totalitarianism and are thus a great help to the islamo-fascists and pose a great threat to the non-muslims.
