“Islamist extremist” is itself a phrase that attempts to distance Islam from the violence perpetrated in its name and in accord with its teachings. So is “Radical Islam.” But as far as Esam Omeish is concerned, any speech that suggests that there is any connection between Islam and jihad violence must be stigmatized and silenced. This is the clearest example yet of how the New Zealand massacre is being exploited in order to shut down any criticism, no matter how mild, of jihad terrorism and Sharia oppression of women and others.

“U.S. Islamist Leader Calls for Stigmatizing Words He Calls ‘Islamophobic,’” by John Rossomando, IPT News, March 20, 2019:

Anyone who uses terms including “jihadist,” “violent jihad,” “Islamist terrorism” or “Islamic extremist” is a hater who deserves to be shunned, an influential Muslim political leader argues.

Esam Omeish issued this call Friday on Facebook, in the emotional wake of the Christchurch mosque massacre in New Zealand.

Omeish is a board member at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Va., which has exhibited Muslim Brotherhood sympathies. He previously served as president of the Muslim American Society (MAS), which prosecutors say was established as the “overt arm” of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.
