Islam Fascim

Reader comment on item: [London Airline Plot] Plans Destroyed

Submitted by John R (United States), Aug 13, 2006 at 17:14

Several thoughts come to mind: (1) Yesterday's thwarted terror plot, and the ensuing media frenzy, offered the perfect antidote to what I warned was a dangerous post 9/11 complacency, for it involved no deaths but vast attention. Also, it prompted President Bush to break new ground by referring to our "war with Islamic fascists."

Islamic fascists. You know I have said this before. Islam itself is fascism. Take a look what they believe based on thier religion. It's fascist. What Bush really should say is that we are at war with Islamic Violence.

On a personal note, as a writer who clocks in his share of hours on planes, I worry that the temporary ban on electronic gear will become permanent, prompting me to rethink my entire travel schedule.

They know it. That's why they did it, to give you a hard time, you stand out among the enemies of Islam.
