Rep. Giuliani to Democrats: Use the words 'Islamic' terrorists

Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani urged Democratic White House hopefuls to use the term "Islamic" terrorists" and accused them of being soft on "terrorists".

Speaking to an invited audience of about 100 local GOP members, the former New York mayor said he was concerned that if a Democrat wins the White House the nation would take a defensive stance in "the war on terror" and become more vulnerable to a domestic attack.

"At no time during their three debates have they used the words 'Islamic terrorists,'" Giuliani said of the Democratic contenders who as he spoke were debating at The Citadel military college in South Carolina.

Giuliani, an outspoken critic of attempts by the Democrat-controlled Congress to set a deadline for withdrawing troops from Iraq, claimed that Democrats were trying to ignore the continued threat from terrorism.

"We are in a war with "Islamic" terrorists. No matter how much avoiding you do, it's not going to go away," he said.
