By following the continous stream of learned books about Islamofascism and how it is related to general fascism in the thirties and fourties in Europe, one can hardly understand that non-muslim apologetes of Islam - in Europe and elsewhere - don't see the jihadis intent. Their holy book, the Koran, is their Mein Kampf. Their vocabular is filled with hatred for Kafirs, and the jihadis eternal cry are always "death to America", "death to the Jews". They even don't use the shadow silk screen any longer, called "Israel", to illustrate their contempt for Jews. Nowadays the expression is flat out "Jews".

The various groups of jihadi warriors have a lot in common with old days fascism, especially that branch called Nazism. Anti-Semitism is the most outspoken. But there are other components first and foremost the contempt for democracy, their devaluation of female traits in society, and maybe the most outspoken to all fascist movements their death-cult. The fascists of the Spanish Civilwar used the war-cry "Viva la Muerte" (Long live the Death).

Just listen to Ahmadinejad's tirades against the West in general and the Jews exclusively: "We, the true believers, love death more than you love life". This pocket-dictator, whos idol is another little dark man, who vanished from the surface of the earth more than sixty years ago, make semilar threaths to mankind. Like his predesessor he believes in the nessescity of the eradication of the Jews. He believes in the great clash between Allah's warriors and the infidels. In Iran in the fourties jihadis believed, that Hitler was the long awaited 13. imam, who was going to safe Iran's muslims from earthbound sufferings.

The civilized world must wake up and answar firmly to present days menace. An American general in Iraq said, that the U.S. warmachine is a mighty hammer - but not all problems are nails. - Well, I think, that the ShariaState Iran is such a nail.
