Language is Critical when Expressing the Behavior of Moslems

I continuously see incorrect language used to describe an event related to moslems or islam. The words "radical", "extremist", "extreme", "devout" and a few other words are incorrectly applied when writing about moslems that suicide bomb people, cut heads off, shoot people in mass, rape, oppose Israel, etc. The problem lies in the fact that when people see these qualifying words used next to the words moslem or islam they will assume that these cases of moslems committing jihad are unacceptable in islam, unusual, and not normal for islam or moslems, which is a false conclusion. By definition, there is no moslem that disagrees with any of these horrible acts against non-moslems or those that are not moslem enough. So, we must use the correct language. For example, when a moslem blows up a bunch of children at a music concert we do not call this an act of "radical islam"; we call this an act of islam and we call the perpetrator a moslem and not an "extremist" or "devout moslem" and not a "radical moslem".
