Islamism = fascism

Reader comment on item: "At War with Islamic Fascists"

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Aug 14, 2006 at 16:47

I don't always agree with Bush and the Americans, but this time I have got to agree. Islamism is a fascist ideology, based on intolerance of other religions and political beliefs. Mussolini's grandchildren are to be found in the Islamist movement. Islamism is militaristic and glorifies the use of force and violence. Islamists train in para-military camps, put a lot of emphasis on ideology, despize the enemy and preach religious purity. The centrality of religion and blind obedience to power also point to that direction.
