Perhaps Islamic Supremacist is a better term?

Reader comment on item: More on the Term "Islamic Fascists"

Submitted by K Green (United States), Aug 16, 2006 at 11:54

According to Wikipedia, "Supremacism is the belief that a particular race, religion, gender, belief system or culture is superior to others and entitles those who identify with it to dominate, control or rule those who do not.

This seems to me to precisely describe the situation with the Islamic sects that are causing violence around the world, without adding in confusing connotations of other words such as facist, terrorist, extremist, etc.

Clearly, the moslems engaging in violence in their various conflicts around the world (unrestrained by their brethren who tacitly agree) believe that Islam is a superior religion and belief system, and that it entitles them (even obligates them) to dominate, control, or rule those who do not share it.


It's important to give this supremacist movement the right name, so that we can properly identify it, understand it well enough to fight it off, and cut through the propaganda that they hide behind as "the religion of peace"
