No they did not. By removing the word “Islamic” from the name of the group, they remove the connection people hear to Islam. Islam in and of itself is terrorist. Jihad, jizya, dhimmi, are all terms which connote terrorism, violence, and death. The term Daesh makes people think that it has nothing to do with Islam when it absolutely does. There should be other terms for this organization. How about IID: Islam is Death.

You sound just like a Muslim fanatic — only with a Christian label. You want respect for Christianity but give none to anyone else. Jesus was Jewish and believed that salvation comes through the Jews, so according to you, I guess he is the anti-Christ.

You are lying. While there are Jews who vehemently disagree with Christians and resent them for setting up missions to convert Jews (in Israel no less!), and there are even some ultra orthodoxJews who feel contempt for Christians and show disrespect for them, the vast majority of Jews — particularly in Israel — feel a kinship with them and feel empathy for their plight in the Arab world. This is in stark contrast to the treatment Jews received from Christians in both the Christian and Arab worlds which was quite hostile and often quite bloody.
In Israel, the majority of Christians who live freely and practice their religion freely, refuse to serve in the IDF and express open hostility towards Israel — the only Middle Eastern country in which they are safe,and they know it. Christian clergy in Israel (and in most of the world) express open hostility towards Israel and the Jews, yet few Israelis express hostility towards Christians.
There was an incident in which three fanatic Jews came to an Arab town, Nazareth, and started to harass a Christian family. The Christians called the police and the police came and arrested the Jews. As for Jews “stoning” Christians–that is a blatant lie and you ought to be ashamed for saying it. One of the ten commandments is “Thou shalt not bear false witness.” I suggest you keep that in mind. Christians in Israel can leave anytime they wish — with all their money and belongings if they hate it so much. They don’t.

Black residents of Chicago: Quit blaming YOUR violence on the people of Central America — whether they are here legally or not. If you don’t have a job, it is not because of some 10 year old from Nicaragua. It is because you refuse to be educated and you have a poor work ethic. If your streets are unsafe, it is not because of what is happening on our southern border. It is because of the violence and mayhem you and your children are committing. If you are poor, stop having babies you can’t afford to raise. Stop blaming your problems on others and stop demanding more government money.
But what about the working people in some Chicago neighborhoods? They aren't all gang members, they don't all let their kids run amuck. They supported this man who ran on a Hope and Change platform, and their lives have only gotten worse.

The violence in Chicago has nothing whatsoever to do with what is happening on the border. If these residents want safer streets, they need to be more law abiding and less violent. Black fathers need to marry the mothers of their children and support them and raise them. This has NOTHING to do with immigration. These residents just want more social programs and more money. They have no desire to get off the government plantation. They want to increase it.

The United States needs to follow the instructions it is always demanding Israel follow:

Who would have thought that France could generate such conservatives? Where were they when their country was becoming so socialist? Did they not realize this was down the road? It seems to me that the French want to pick and choose exactly which elements of the socialist/nanny state they want to follow. I wonder what the Muslim response to all this is? Are we going for a new round of car burnings?
I'm suprised too. I would've thought they'd legalized gay marriage twenty years ago. I thought the birds in France flew in tight circles for want of a right wing. (Before somebody posts explaining the origin of the terms right and left wing. Don't. I know.)
You're looking at the Muslim response. Do you really think there are any Christians left in France?
MIDNIGHTVELVET, Left and right is really nothing more than a graph. This video is an excellent explanation.

PWatkins: I don’t even think Obama knows what his real name is. He so believes in his own made up image that the real person is as unknown to him as it is to everyone else.

Gun owners are having more of an effect on bringing the crime rate down than anything else it seems.

Shirley didn’t just protect herself and her home and her husband. She brought a criminal to God. Bet he’s having a long talk with the Lord at this very moment.

Thank God for gun owners! The crime rate is actually going down and they are one of the reasons!

Shulman needs to be fined or serve jail time. That’ll teach him. He’s behaving in a contemptuous manner.

The savage who committed this act of war said he was sorry women had to witness it. How decent and civilized of him.
May 22, 2013 at 3:49pm
At least the British are calling this an act of terrorism. If it happened in the US, it would be called a traffic accident or at worst, road rage.
Is this what you're looking for?

If it was true that BO’s handlers didn’t tell him about the IRS investigation, it goes to show you how little they think of his intelligence. They view him as a talking idiot and nothing more. But we know BO is more than a talking idiot — he is a lying, conniving, duplicitous, manipulative, criminal, ego maniacal, malignant narcissist talking idiot.
