Islamists Do Not Like McCain Saying Islamic To Describe Terrorists

ARRA News Service - Hat tip to Wm Teach at McCain Blogs for the following:
Via The Jawa Report
A coalition of American Muslim groups is demanding that Sen. John McCain stop using the adjective “Islamic” to describe terrorists and extremist enemies of the United States.

Muneer Fareed, who heads the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), told The Washington Times that his group is beginning a campaign to persuade Mr. McCain to rephrase his descriptions of the enemy[…]

Steve Schmidt, a former Bush White House aide who is now a McCain media strategist, told The Times that the use of the word is appropriate and that the candidate will continue to define the enemy that way.
Anyone else think that Obama would have folded like a cheap Armani suit to the groups? Not that BHO would ever say it in the first place.
