Islamo Facism,

The term is so unhip. Yeah, Bush and the Neo-Con cronies used that term for an year, but it went out of style pretty quickly since it didn't roll of the toungue nicely; too inguistically complicated for a president and public who can't even pronounce "neuclear". Much less know that the individual terms mean.

Islam: Religion, does not believe in the might of the State, Nor the might of the clergy. But instead in individual and group action. Charity instead of Tax. Jurisprudence, instead of Condemnation. Equality of races, instead of segrigation.

Facism: Ultra nationalism. Capitalism. A store central State that serves only the needs of the nation, or people.

The term "Islamo Facist" is an oxymoron, like CapitoCommunist. Two opposing philosophies. Islam is against the nation state, believes in weak government, and no taxation. A volunteer army drawn from the Muslim's duty of jihad, not a standing one. It believes in equality of the races, and freedom of movement, no segrigation. Facism believes in a strong central government with the sole purpose of maintaining the state for the benefit of one race, people, nation. A strong central Nation State that serves the titillary majority and persecutes minorities in order to drive them out. Islam is a values based system, not a system based value. Values come before the state. In Facism the state comes before all. Ultra-nationalist, war mongering, and values only the life of its own citizenry....
