What should we call the terrorists?

Reader comment on item: "At War with Islamic Fascists"

Submitted by William Spiller (United States), Aug 14, 2006 at 12:11

"Perverted Islamic Terrorists" is a longer term but might obviate some complaints. It or some similar expression might convey the idea without implicating the hopefully more peacful majority of Muslims, The term fascist seems historically wrong or at least confusing. What bothers me is that so many Muslims who are citizens of Western nations seem to consider themselves members of Islam over their loyaltiy to their new country. Willaim Spiller (a retired 84 year old observer)
