dont confuse communism with bolshevism Arvind. Communism is an ideal of living together by owning the means of production together. If it is enforced, as done by the bolsheviki, then it becomes fascistic.

Islam means mental slavery under a seventh century arabic god-concept and an arabic book. Such a mental slavery has to be enforced and the manipulative force and violence kept up or even increased from generation to generation.

Islam presents a socio-political picture like the one in George Orwell's novels "1984" and "Animal Farm" which were originally written to expose bolshevik dictatorships in the 1940's. At that time islamic bolshevism had still not burst out on the world scene. Now bolshevism is gone and islam has taken its place additionally misusing the word god (the arabic allah) in its own totalitarian service.

BTW capitalism has its fascist side too. Who can deny that? Communism is an ideal, a dream, a striving for something beyond the self-centred and narrow-minded. No one can guararntee that communism will work - but it is an ideal that motivates some good-natured people.
