A rose by any other name...

Also from NewsMax:

Top House Democrat Charlie Rangel said Tuesday that it was an act of discrimination to label groups like Hezbollah "Islamic terrorists."

Asked about the refusal by some European governments to declare Hezbollah an Islamic terror group, Rangel told WWRL's Steve Malzberg and Karen Hunter, "To call it Islamic terror is discriminating, it's bigoted, it is not the right thing to say."

The members are all Moslem, their stated goals are for what they consider the furtherance of Islam, they quote the Quran whenever they make threats, what would they be then?

This is sort of reminiscent of the efforts of Liberals to prevent the police from identifying Black suspects as Black, lest it make people think Black people actually, sometimes commit crimes. It also made it virtually impossible to locate the suspect since the most recognizable characteristic of any person would be their skin color.

If the non-terrorist Moslems would make a greater effort to distance themselves from those who commit atrocities in the name of Islam, then it would be much harder for Islam as a whole to be smeared by the acts of extremists.
