'Islamic extremism' off limits at White House terrorism summit
by Marisa Schultz
The White House will kick off a three-day summit Tuesday on combating violent extremism on social media — but the administration won't focus on Islamic extremism and won't even mention the term.
"You can call them what you want; we're calling them terrorists," a senior Obama administration official said Monday.
The determination not to mention Islam or Muslims comes as ISIS continues its murderous spree in the name of Islam, most recently beheading 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya.
