Warning! The terminology used is not intended to be offensive to any practiced religion.  It is recognized that the majority of Muslims are moderate and do not support the violent overthrow of any government.  Additionally, the use of the term Islamist is not to associate Islam with violence but to differentiate between the peace practicing majority of Muslims and the criminal extremist attempting to hijack the religion.
