What is Radical Islam?

Reader comment on item: On Islam and Islamism

Submitted by Atoo (Canada), Mar 24, 2008 at 15:13

Islamofascist, radical Islam, Islamic extremists are all slogans used to criminalize and demonize Muslims all over the world. I consider myself as a westernized Muslim and yet I feel pain when these words are used on Muslims in general, specially by the President of the United States. How do you think Christians all over the world would feel if Christians are called Christofascists or Jews feel if called Jewishfascists for a the crimes committed by a few trouble makers? There are 1.5 billion Muslims all over the world. This is just to give you a sense of the magnitude of the blame you people are putting on God loving Muslims.
