Countering Islamic Extremism by Peter Singer - Project Syndicate

The Islamic State *IS* Islamic! No matter how much Obama may tell us the Emperor does have clothes...
[quote] PRINCETON – Last month, US President Barack Obama hosted a three-day summit on "Countering Violent Extremism." That term has already spawned a new abbreviation, "CVE," used no fewer than 12 times in a Fact Sheet released by the Obama administration on February 18.
The Fact Sheet also uses the term "violent extremism" 21 times. How many times do, terms like "Islam," "Islamic," or "Muslim" appear? Zero. There is not even a reference to the "Islamic State." That entity is referred to only by the initials "ISIL." [end quote]
