Because in the wake of Islamic terrorism nothing is more important than fending off Islamophobia, the experts at ThinkProgress would like to remind us that ISIS aren’t really Muslims:

Indeed, even from the viewpoint of a casual observer, ISIS is an abomination to Islam. Explosions tend to capture the media’s attention more than peaceful coexistence, and a minuscule minority of extremist groups claiming to be Islamic have exploited this fact as a way to reinvent Islam as a “violent” religion. But just because you shout God’s name while committing murder doesn’t make your actions righteous. Islam, as millions of Muslims can attest, is a peaceful religion that calls on its followers to choose community over conflict, or, as it says in Surah al-Hujurat of the Qur’an(49:13): “O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made…

    Nick Land pointed out a brilliant Tweet in response to Piers Morgan saying the terrorists weren’t Islamic, but had hijacked the religion:

    “Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, has a Phd in Islamic Theology from Baghdad University… what are your credentials?”

    The train is fine IGor, the train is fine.

    200 dead do not care about names distinctions. IT is an ethnic and civilization conflict. Why obfuscate with a name???

    Just contemptible

    @ Mark Citadel: Ha! 🙂

    @ infowarrior1: “There’ll be no shelter here / The front line is everywhere…”, like the Rage Against The Machine song says…

    @ ddswaterloo: Indeed.

    In Prog-think the “real” Muslims are the ones so secularized that the only thing Muslim about them are their names. The ones who actually practice Islam are … well, some kind of misunderstood and misguided extremists, but not MUSLIM exremists, oh no, no, no, no …

    @ Chillingworth: Now THAT’S particularly interesting, since ever since Kemal Ataturk ushered in Turkey’s secularist, republican regime, he and his successors have loudly insisted their Turkey is a modern, secularist one. Yet they chant “God is Great” to taunt Europeans.

    But no, they’re not Muslims; not a one of them.

    Right…

    @ feeriker: Exactly. Here in Canada, we have a brown dyke named Irshad Manji who likes to tell everyone that she’s a Muslim, and to tell others what REAL Muslims are like; apparently, they’re all progressives and homos like her! Funny how that goes… Naturally, for a while, she was a darling of neo-cons on both sides of the border; you may have heard of her a few years back:
