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

As I see it, there is nothing wrong in calling these terrorists as "Muslim terrorists" because they are Muslims and they are terrorists. If these terrorists were Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, wouldn't we call them Christian terrorists, Hindu terrorists, etc? So why shouldn't we call these Muslim terrorists as Muslim terrorists instead of searching for a fancy name for them such as Islamofascists, Islamists, Extremists etc, as if they are different from Muslims. No matter what you call them in deference to political correctness, you still can't hide the fact that they are Muslim terrorists!!
