Who They Fight

At the last Democratic debate, the candidates (excepting Webb) had a jolly time listing what type of Republican is on their enemies list, to the delight of the audience.

Will any candidate add Islamist terrorists to their list tonight?

UPDATE: Not exactly profiles in courage:

President Obama played the “religion card” during his news conference this morning by accusing some Republicans of “feeding the notion” that the War on Terror as a “war against Islam.” It was a clear attempt to sidestep the Saturday Democratic presidential debate in which all three candidates declined to name “radical Islam” as the enemy even after CBS News moderator John Dickerson made it very clear he wasn’t referring to all Muslims.

This approach didn’t impress the Morning Joe panel on liberal MSNBC. Co-host Joe Scarborough was scathing: “How stupid do they think we are? How stupid? Nobody’s calling all Muslims terrorists. Nobody’s suggesting the majority of Muslims are terrorists . . . We ask Democrats, top Democratic leaders to come on and everybody was busy today. Nobody wanted to talk about what poses a real threat to Western civilization and you have Democrats . . . Why can’t you call radical Islam radical Islam?”

Yes. Unless all Moslems actually are radical Moslems, why refrain from calling the enemy radical Moslems? I mean, as everyone always likes to remind us, these fanatics kill more Moslems than anybody else.
