Islam and Fascism

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

Submitted by Singha (United States), Aug 17, 2006 at 13:04

Islam and Fascist Terrorism are ipso facto one and the same. Sugar coating will delay the inevitable, the day of reckoning when we all(non-Muslims) have to end up fighting Islam and its evil followers.

Islamism, similar to fascism or communism or leninism, or maoism is a weak term that does communicate the much greater evil that Islam represents. Islam is greater evil because the other "isms" did not systematically abuse God and religion the way Islam does. Also there is no point beating about the bush which is what Dr. Pipes is trying to do by being sophisticated when it is not necessary. There are times when one has to be more direct.

My vote is for Islamic Terrorism/Terror. The association between Islam and Terror which is very real, has a historical basis, needs to be perceived by all and therefore needs to be actively projected.
