Communism Incarnate

Reader comment on item: Frontpage Interview: Daniel Pipes

I've finally found a fellow believer:
"Pipes: Correct. I see militant Islam as a true successor of the fascist and communist movements, not just in its totalitarian methods but also in its cosmic goals. There is no way to accommodate any of these ideologies; they will either destroy the civilized world or be destroyed it. As Abraham Lincoln put it in 1838, "If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher.""
Our war is with "governments" not hot-headed, simple-minded fools. How do people blind themselves to the enormity of the forces we are challenging?
