Islamic Fundamentalists are NOT FASCISTS

I take issue w/ the incessant Orwellian labeling of certain sects of Islam as 'fascists' by our government and the MSM. For anyone with any knowledge of history, this is a completely erroneous assertion and should be shoved off as rhetorical propaganda. Fascism should more appropriately be called 'Corporatism' because it is a merger of state and corporate power. The alleged "Islamo-Fascists" defined by the Rove administration are revolting against these very things, the encroachment and colonization on and of their traditional lands, and dilution of their cultures and societies by the corporate and hence state powers of the West (see USA). The term fascism more aptly applies to the current state of our pseudo 'democratic' government.

Wikipedia's take is here.
