    I continue to see the words "Islamofascist" or "Islamofascism" used on this board. To those that use this term, will you please provide a definition or explanation for how it is conceivable to call Islamists fascists?

    Do you believe they meet this definition?

    "A philosophy or system of government that is marked by stringent social and economic control, a strong, centralized government usually headed by a dictator, and often a policy of belligerent nationalism." - (Source: American Heritage Dictionary)​

    Do they meet this definition?

    "Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power." - Benito Mussolini​

    Do they uplift the fasce symbol as representative of one of their countries? Is it probable that a nation that holds this symbol is a fascist nation?

    Do any of the deeds of contemporary Islamic leaders compare to the deeds of historical fascists such as Hitler or Mussolini?

    Is it at all probable that this word is nothing but a neologism created by neocons and promoted by their establishment media so that it can be echoed by dittoheads and Hannitizers?

    In some cases, like Iran, it is the case. In others, it is more tribal pockets.

    Same as above. Some nations seem to have it as their creed, other nations have problems with pockets of terrorists. ​
    In some cases. same as the two, above.

    Yup. They haven't been able to kill millions, yet, but the groundwork is there, and it does compare to Hitler's pre WWII rants...
    Actually, it was Micheal Savage who coined the term, and I just decided I like it. I say what I want to, usually, and don't particularly care how people twist it. If when I say it, it conjures up those images in your head, then foist them where you will. (Or not)
