Hi, Michael Right !

Thanks for your curious questions !

> Question:
What does "Radical Islam" call us? Hmmm I bet it's not good! Maybe..." American Pig Dogs" or "Great Satan's"... possibly "Pig Dog Satan Serpents"! <

If the terrorists follow some inverted Political Correctness, then these and similar curses must be what they use daily refering to us.

Osama - "We have cut off no American pig-like money's head today! Allah dislikes that ! ...I'd gladly slaughter one or two of them to please Allah and earn an extra huris... How about that VOA ... of a journalist ?"

Mullah Omar - "The VOA infidel snake of a reporter deserves that ... but Allah knows we can't do it yet! The Jew-looking sow has never called us 'radical Moslems' or 'terrorists'..."

Osama - "Did the Big Satan's pork face never did that?"

Mullah Omar - " By Allah and His Last Day , the wine-drinker's dirty bitch mouth never used the terms..."

Osma - "I feel relieved...Calling us 'Radical Moslem' or 'terrorists' could greatly harm our image in the pork-eating West. And it might in turn slow down the triumphant march of Allah's Cause on earth..."

> Quite frankly, I don't think its fair that they get to call us by derogitory names and I don't get to call them "Radical"! Fair is fair! C'mon people! <

I'd generalize your question. How do Moslems call us? Are they so particular about choossing the names? Do they also have their language police and a male Janin to write and impose a style-and-usage guidance on how to call a kafir not to (or rather to) offend , humiliate, deride and demonize Allah's enemies ?

E.g. could they distinguish between : 'moderate kafirs' ('moderate infidels', i.e. 'moderate enemies of Allah' ) and 'radical/ fundamentalist kafirs' ('radical/fundamentalist infidels' , i.e. radical enemies of Allah) as we are told everywhere to do refering to Allah's slaves? Do such distinctions in Islam make sense at all ?

I am for symmetry and I wonder if the so called 'moderate Muslims' have ever had the idea to call some of us 'moderate kafirs' ? Or just like 'Islam' and 'Islamism' would they ever distinguish between -say- 'kufr' and 'kafirism'? 'Kufr' being docile, submissive, concessive, deferential and ready to paying the jizya with humility and betray their land and culture with glee while 'kafirism' being bad, intolerant , recalcitrant , crusader-like, unwilling to pay jizya and betray anything just to enhance Islam's cause ?

Be as it may , Janin and her bosses can do many nasty exercises in language control. What they can never control is logic though which tends to be the best supporter of freedom's cause. For the most rudimentary logic tells us what all those vocabulary purges are for. Who controls words, controls thoughts; who controls thoughts, controls actions. First they want to impose their absurdities upon us, then they want us to call it 'wisdom' and at the end they want us to give up our freedom which is the greatest hinderance to their nasty utopia.
