Pre-election rhetoric is gearing up, and Islam naturally is going to be a heated subject. Republican planners and leaders are discussing the idea of trying to link radical-Islam with Fascism in the public mind. As a result, searches for the definition of the word Fascism have jumped at Yahoo.
Peacenik Moon-bat liberals know that this is going to be a sticking point for them, so they are going to try to sideline the debate on the word by asking "just what is the proper definition of a Fascist, and are the Republicans right to use the term when discussing Islam?"
Even though liberals toss the term about wildly and loosely when they refer to Republicans, all of a sudden they are going to try to narrow the definition when it comes to Islam. Jesus railed against people who "swallow camels and then strain at gnats," and this case is a perfect example.
Although the term itself originated in European politics and the technical definition may refer to a specific set of European style governing principles, I believe the term has been in the public domain long enough now to successfully apply it to a broader definition. Islamic governments often display characteristics of Fascism, whether they admit it or not, including dictators, single party rule, torture, executions, prisons, oppression of ethnic Islamic minorities, mutilation and killing of women, and so on.
In America we have an old saying: "if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it's more than likely a duck." It is also said that "where there is smoke, there is fire."
Islam often refers to America as "The Great Satan." The word Satan came from the Babylonian Shaitan. Satan was an Arabic concept before being used by Christians. In my opinion, Islam is The Great Satan, and their governments are nothing more than Fascism. To call them anything else would dishonor all who suffered and died under their rule.
