President Obama and the White House kick off a three-day summit to brainstorm ideas to counter violent extremism a little later today, but in case you were worried that this little confab would be too Islamic-centered, don’t be.

They’ll focus on all types of extremists!

“Off limits”?

More from that New York Post link above:

The White House will kick off a three-day summit Tuesday on combating violent extremism on social media — but the administration won’t focus on Islamic extremism and won’t even mention the term.

“You can call them what you want; we’re calling them terrorists,” a senior Obama administration official said Monday.

The determination not mention to Islam or Muslims comes as ISIS continues its murderous spree in the name of Islam, most recently beheading 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya.

Stay tuned for updates.
