Islam vs "Islamic Totalitarianism" debate follow up

I just did a short follow up on my debate with Yaron Brook at the beginning of this week's podcast that you can listen to here.

And here's another follow up from my Facebook status earlier today:

It's one thing to use different terms to distinguish between Muslims who are at war with us (I call them what they are, Jihadists) and Muslims who aren't, but quite another thing to create different terms for Islam. Jihadists aren't following a totalitarian version of Islam, they are following an ideology that is totalitarian by nature, Islam.

Bosch, Islamic Totalitarianism does not mean a totalitarian version of Islam, literally. Technically it means an Islamic version of Totalitarianism. So, Islamic Totalitarianism does not literally imply (literally at least) that Islam is not totalitarian as is stands today. If you reverse the two words and say "Totalitarian Islam", that is much more close to what you are talking about. Just an observation.

Amy Peikoff made that observation on the show. I use the term Islam for Islam. To add any prefix or suffix only helps Islam, which is the last thing I want to do.

Just right, Bosch. Thst point it's the same as the old Democratic Germany, nothing far from the truth.

by the way, just a glimpse of what happens with islam in Eurabia, exactly, in Spain:

(mind the expression: "radical islam")

I just tweeted this:

Islam is Totalitarian by nature. So using the term "Islamic Totalitarianism" would be like using the term Totalitarian Totalitarianism.
