CAIR vs. the truth
The Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, war on the truth about Islam and jihad continues: Now it has announced that it is insulted by the term "Islamist." Or at least by its negative usage to refer to Islamic supremacists who want to impose Islamic law on free people.
In an op-ed, Hamas-CAIR's Ibrahim Hooper whined that the term was "currently used in an almost exclusively pejorative context." Hooper complained about AP's stylebook, which defines the term as a "supporter of government in accord with the laws of Islam. Those who view the Quran as a political model encompass a wide range of Muslims, from mainstream politicians to militants known as jihadi."
What would CAIR call them?
