So: exactly how is "extremist terrorism" more "islamist" than "islamic"???

Reader comment on item: Trump's Saudi Speech: Pretty Good

Re: (Trump spoke of) "honestly confronting the crisis of Islamic extremism and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds."

To which you added this caveat: "(The prepared text read "Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups" but when speaking, Trump made these changes. While Islamist is more precise than Islamic, politically, both make the same point.)"

You mean 'extreme' (or not; say, maybe it's merely 'normative') terrorism is only somehow islam-ish, ("islamist") but "No True Muslim" (much like No True Scotsman) would ever find terrorism to be specifically, officially, islam-IC (as in, maybe to be found exalted and commanded right in the Qur'an and most sahih ahadith themselves)???

Because those very same texts tent to disagree with your deflective, contentious evasion attempt.

Islam has a divine mandate, expressed in Surah Al-Anfal 8:39 and Surah At-Taubah 9:29 to conquer the entire world or any region of it.

There are commands to cast terror and terrify such as Surah Al-Anfal 8:12, 57 & 60 and no accewptance of the command in Surah At-Taubah 9:29 and 123 to fight us until we submit to extortion. We can not share the world with people who believe that they will get Divine Brownie Points for any act intended to injure or enrage us as expressed in Surah At-Taubah 9:120.

Islam embodies the idea, expressed in Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387, that our blood and treasure are not sacred to Muslims and we have no human rights until we revert.

They insist we will be dragged to Islam with chains on our necks as in Surah Al-Imran 3:110 & Sahih Bukhari 6.60.80.
