Islamofascism is a new word coined to describe the fanatical and violent nature of the radical ideology.

Why so?

In contemplating European Fascists one must consider more than just Nazism which certainly was pure unadulterated fascism but also Muscolini and even Stalin, who while claiming to be socialist actually remolded comunism into a perverted for of state terror fascism.

Some interesting points
Fascists put the state ahead of individuals. Radical islam seeks to replace constitutional law with Sharia and to build a Caliphate.

Fascists terrorise those who oppose them and who are deemed inferior, e.g. Crystalnacht compare with 911, 7/7 etc.

Fascists are idealogues who argue a pure ideology without compromise.. compare to wahabi phenonom of relgious fundamentalism.

Fascists raise censorship and propaganda to an artform e.g. Josef Goebels cf Al Jazeera.

Fascists get very annoyed by satire and cartoons. e,g, Hitler and present day.

Fascists use whatever power they have to crush and control the weak. See Europe 1930s and 40s and Darfur today.., honor killings forced marriages you get the idea..

Fascists are dangerous..
