Tyrkias EU-minister, Volkan Bozkir, sa på et seminar i Brussel lørdag at begrep som islamsk terror fornærmer verdens muslimer. De to ting bør ikke forbindes med hverandre.

Identifying Islam with terror is a mistake that should be avoided, Turkey’s EU minister told an anti-terrorism meeting in Brussels on Saturday.

The terms like Islamic terrorism and Islamic state are offending Muslims and should not be used, Volkan Bozkir said at the German Marshall Fund’s 2015 Brussels Forum session on “Countering the New Wave of Terrorism at Home and Abroad.”

Using the terminology Islamic state or Islamic terrorism, I do not think is the correct thing to do, because then we are naming something in a wrong way and causing the rest of the Islamic world to feel bad,” said Bozkir.
