Reader comment on item: "Islamism is fascism"

Submitted by Y Brandstetter MD (Israel), Jul 24, 2003 at 07:57

The point Daniel Pipes makes is that contrary to all other groups of immigrants to America who wished to integrate into the American dream, the Islamists aim to change America into the Islamic dream. The islamist did not come to integrate, live and let live. The Islamist came to conquer.
Similarly in Israel. Under Ottoman rule Palestine, both sides of the Jordan, numbered 250000 lives, many nomads, mostly destitute. Read "the innocents abroad" by Mark Twain. The Jewish immigration of the 1880 brought money, agricultural entrepreneurs, and a will to revivify the moribund malarious land. The Arabs came for the employment opportunities, commercial opportunities and improved living conditions created. Those were the Muslims. The Islamists, led by Hajj Amin El Husseini took over the leadership in the 1920's and turned an emerging partnership into a pitched battle. The same Islamist leader then became the chief advocate chez Hitler and Eichmann for the physical annihilation of the Jews, everywhere. The Islamist- fascist movements are identical in both substance and ideaology, that is world domination via the sword and genocide.
Daniel Pipes, I wish your abilities to see through the Islamist subtrefuges was shared by the leaders of the free world, and Israel.
