" It would be like talking about “Catholic terrorists”, “Black terrorists”, “Gay terrorists” or “American terrorists” it creates a
impression in the mind of individuals who identify as catholic, black, gay or in this case Islamic that it is they who are the problem. "
I feel like addressing a few things here only at the moment. I am not finished reading. When I read Catholic and American terrorists as above I didn't
feel as the appropriate impression was negative. I identify as both and if a country stated such after an attack, I wouldn't feel as if It was
inappropriate. I don't think any people should be bother by that. If any one of those identifiers decided to attack people because of that identifier
than the individual should be labeled as such. Those who share the same identifier should understand that that person has extreme beliefs about the
identifier and disregard it.
" The second reason that I do not believe that the use of the phase “Islamic terrorism” is far bigger however, essentially I believe that it is
wrong to label most of these terrorists as acting under the direction of an Islamic ideology. Rather I take the view that the founders of the
forerunner to ISIS, Al-Qa’ida created their own fresh ideology, their own interpretation of Islam that is as different as Judaism and Catholicism.
Essentially they have created their own faith over decades that in the later part of the last century really came into its own as a new religious
ideology that draws heavily on Muslim tradition yet is still distinctly different. At best what we are fighting is not Islam but rather a very small
sect of Islam a cult of sorts, they are the Islamic equivalent of the Branch of Davidians on a bigger scale. "
I wouldn't assume that because the identifier was used, that it was under direction of those who identify as such. I would like to know why others do
though. Maybe I am just thick. Also isn't the attack itself just proof that the attacker had it's own interpretation of the identifier?
Now I think that all these identifiers 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999% of the time shouldn't be scrutinized because of individual actions but
that depends on the consistency and the severity of the extremist actions. And specifically with Islamic identifiers, there is a trend that is quickly
become more consistent, If white catholic males started blowing things up everywhere, I am going to be looking at people who identify as I do, with
