One afternoon this month, Islamic State militants arrived at the Central Library of the northern city of Mosul in a non-combat mission. They broke the locks that kept the two-story building closed since the extremists overran the city in mid last year, loading some 2,000 books included children stories, poetry, philosophy, sports, health and cultural and scientific publications into six pickup trucks and leaving behind only the Islamic religious ones.

A woman walks past a poster of animation "Assassination Classroom" in Tokyo, Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015. Images or mentions of knives, ransom or blood - or anything else that can be seen alluding to the hostage crisis involving two Japanese in Syria - have been cut out. Some anime and other entertainment programs are altering, canceling or postponing episodes violating those sensitivities - typical of the kind of self-restraint shown here to avoid controversy. The following day, broadcaster Fuji Television Network canceled an episode of the animation, citing "inappropriate material given the current situation." (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara)

President Barack Obama speaks in the East Room of the White House in Washington, Friday, Jan. 30, 2015. Twice this month, the White House has publicly grappled with the politically fraught language of terrorism. In the days after a deadly terror spree in Paris, President Barack Obama was criticized for purposely avoiding calling the attacks an example of “Islamic extremism,” settling for the more generic “violent extremism.” This week, the White House struggled to explain why the administration sometimes classifies the Afghan Taliban as a terrorist organization _ and sometimes does not.
