“Terrorism is the war of the poor, and war is the terrorism of the rich.” – Peter Ustinov

 

The term “Isalamo-fascist” doesn’t mean a damn thing and it is the invention of the neoconservatives to dehumanize and denigrate the Muslim Community thus denying them any political motivation and the reason for us to address their legitimate concerns.  And it is used as a means of justification for pre-emptive war.  It is also a term used to suggest that the war is legitimate and that we have a specific enemy. 

Fascism evokes memories from World War II and the Nazi’s and Mussolini.   Both of whom were identifiable threats.  One must understand what Fascism is in the first place and the neo-cons in their Borg like collective don’t have a clue.  Fascism is defined as a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.  That does not exist in Islam where Islamist’s reject nationalism and collaborations with large corporations.  They are more concerned with control over personal behavior.

I am not saying that Muslim governments are not free from brutality and repression of its citizens.  In America we treat our dogs better than the women of Saudi Arabia get treated.  And shit, isn’t Saudi Arabia one of our strongest allies in the region?

As a religion major I have studied certain aspects of Islam and it is very dangerous to label all Muslims as Islamo-fascist.  That’s tantamount to labeling all Christians from the same ilk of the Hagee’s and Robertson’s of this world.  The Islamist militant is concerned with these things, liberating their land from foreign occupation, overthrowing un-Islamic regimes, and removing western influence from their region.

If you want to really want to identify the real neo-fascist, one needs look no further than to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  We are in the first pre-emptive war of perhaps more to come; we overthrew Saddam Hussein and know we are setting up no bid contracts for western oil companies to control Iraqi oil.  We have military dominance over the rest of the world.  Our civil liberties have been eroded.  We have fostered a hatred for all things Muslim.  Right about know I would hate to be a Syrian or Iranian if McCain wins the election.    

Right about now, two of the biggest Fascist’s on earth is George W. Bush and Dick Cheney!

    mmmmmmmmm that great islamic history scholar Ustinov! Wow! Acotors are always good sources of snappy quotes and they are mostly liberals, but as for intellectual prowess they should keep their day jobs.

    You will hate being an American if Iran gets nukes. Hey Bush is withdrawing troops in Iraq and increasing troops in Afghanistan. It is a result of a course correction with the surge. The Iraqi government can negotiate the end of occupation with Bush and his cabinet without the contribution of Obama, so one less plank in Obamessiah’s platform that sinking rudderless raft lost in the river of nebulous change that is the vision of those who haven’t yet grown up. (to quote Sowell not Ustinov). Do you not like Sowell?

    Let’s not forget “feminazis”….

    or..”nattering nabobs of negativism”, which seems to be very descriptive of the Right for a few years.

    Come on PT, the Iraq withdrawal, just a few weeks before the election, is not a fantastic coincidence but a partisan political ploy to undermine Obama support by trying to take that issue off the ballot. This same kind of thing happened with Viet Nam. But I’m sure many will be fooled..again.

    As for Iran..why? Why do we have the cabal that is there now? Because of the U.S support for the Shah; first when he was overthrown in a coup but restored to power with U.S. abetting it. Then, the US continued to support the Shah for decades because he was “our” dictator. The U.S. doesn’t care about democracy overseas, only its own interests, no matter who suffers.

    Ah, but if the stock market is willing, in 5 years I’m outta here and the U.S. is not my problem. Not that it is now…
    I seceded mentally! LOL!
