Islamic Fascism

"Islamic Fascism" is one name for the modern, globalised, violent, terrorist, political form of Islam. In many ways the modern globalised terrorist form of jihad is simply a continuation of the 1,400 year old jihad of Islam. I will make the argument for giving the modern version a name below.

A formerly popular name for the modern ideology was "Islamic fundamentalism". The terms "Islamic Fascism" and "Islamofascism" enjoyed a popularity after 9/11. "Islamism" is probably now the most common term. "Political Islam" and "Radical Islam" and "Islamic supremacism" are also used. All of these mean the same thing - the wing of Islam that uses war (jihad) to impose oppression (sharia).

The two faces of Islamism.
Left, the destruction of our prosperity, our science, our learning, our culture, our beautiful cities - everything we have worked for for a thousand years.
Right, the institution of a reign of primitive superstitious savagery.

The term "Islamic Fascism"

Islamic Fascism is really a modern phenomenon. [1] It is basically a 20th century totalitarian movement - like fascism and communism.

Islamic Fascism is designed - like fascism and communism - to appeal to idealistic young people with a utopian future where the world will be "cleansed". Other names for it are "Islamofascism" and "Islamism" and "Islamic fundamentalism".

I think "Islamic Fascism" is the clearest, most descriptive name, [2] showing that this is simply the same kind of thing that the democracies spent the 20th century fighting. Islamic Fascism is genuinely fascist. It has contempt for democracy, free speech and human rights. It is full of hatred for Jews, atheists, homosexuals, and liberated women. It is linked to racist hatred of blacks in Sudan, slave trading of black Africans, and racist hatred of other ethnic minorities in the Islamic world. And, like fascism and communism, the only solution is the destruction of this philosophy. This will take a long Cold War, lasting for perhaps this entire century.

Islamists say "Islam is Peace", which sounds nice, but you need to check. To many Islamists, "Peace" actually means "Slaughter". So when they say "Islam is Peace", it is actually a threat.
Here an Islamic State account in Aug 2014 says Islam is "peace".
And then seconds later says they will rape the Yazidi women and kill the men.
Saved here and here, since the account was suspended.

Everyone should support a "War on Islamism"

Nobody should support a war on Islam, but everybody should support a war on Islamism.

Islamism is not simply a religious philosophy that one is free not to follow. Islamism is a political movement that aims to impose itself by force on those who disagree. Islamism aims to impose religious Sharia Law on the whole world, ending human rights and civil liberties, ending freedom of religion, ending freedom of speech, and ending freedom of sexuality. Islamism threatens us and everything we love, and will always threaten us, until it is defeated. A War on Islamism is something that every Christian, Jew, atheist, Hindu or other infidel should support. A War on Islamism is something that every freedom-loving Muslim should support. Islamism - or any other philosophy that imposes religion by force - should have no place in our world. A War on Islamism is a no-brainer, like a War on Fascism. Every liberal and every leftist should support a War on Islamism.

Objection: "Islamism" is the real Islam

Many counter-jihad people object to words like "Islamism". They say: "Islamism is the real, theologically-sound Islam. Tolerant Islam does not follow the example of the Prophet."

My main point: Religions don't have to make sense.

September 11th, 2001

The World Trade Centre attack is the greatest attack on civilization and liberty since 1945. The West is not simply "another" culture. It is a set of values that represent the highest achievement of humanity. A set of values that the whole planet can - and should - adopt. Western values are worth dying - and killing - for. The West is the greatest, richest, freest, best part of planet Earth, the heart of science and all knowledge, the best hope for mankind. Anyone who seeks its destruction should be destroyed themselves.

The spoilt, wealthy butcher Mohamed Atta.

Could 9/11 have been prevented?

No, is the short answer. Because nobody would have tolerated the US government taking strong action to prevent it before 9/11.

The Clinton Administration had Bin Laden in its sights in 2000 (picture from drone over Afghanistan) but failed to kill him.
From 2004 NBC report. Also here.

I was typical liberal-left

At the time of the 9/11 attack, I still believed in the left-liberal universe, and I was still reading the Irish Times and the Guardian, as you can see from some of my early links.

Then I start to shift to libertarian-right

So my first reaction to September 11th was in the liberal-left press, and I still tried to fit it into that universe. Then I started reading the American media online. And I found my political philosophy starting to change. This was big. This wasn't about Israel after all. This was something much bigger. These were beginning to look more like the Nazis, come back again in different uniforms, with different names, but with the same mission, to destroy our civilization. This was beginning to look like the absolutely just war that we had not seen since 1945.

In defence of the West

After September 11th, I thought I would go online and see what the much-reviled American right-wing hawks and conservatives were saying. I had never read their material before (it does not appear in the Irish media) and I was shocked to find that it appeared to be based on reason and evidence, and a strong sense of morality and belief in human freedom and dignity. These, I realised with a shock, are the people who defended us against the Third Reich and the Soviet Union.

The Irish Times liberals are not the people who defended us against the Third Reich. They would never have stood with the Allies (and never will, no matter what). Their arguments are much the same as de Valera's. Their anti-American, anti-British worldview is little different to de Valera's. They are the heirs of de Valera, not Churchill.

I felt my left-liberal faith slipping away with every article I read.

In the grim, relentless story of the satanic jihad, we hardly ever get to burst out laughing. So let us relish this story:

"All Arabs shall arise and annihilate the Jews! We shall fill the sea with their corpses."
- Hassan al Banna, founder of the original Islamic fascist group the Muslim Brotherhood, calling for a genocide of the Jews when Israel was declared a state, 1947.
Luckily, the Islamic fascists failed to carry out their genocide.

The American jihadi Adam Gadahn demonstrates Islamism's low and debased morality, openly defending attacks on civilians.

"We don't make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians, innocents and non-innocents. Only between Muslims and unbelievers. And the life of an unbeliever has no value. It has no sanctity."
- Omar Bakri Muhammad sums up the morality of jihad. See more.

"The term 'civilians' does not exist in Islamic religious law. ... There is no such term as 'civilians' in the modern Western sense. People are either of Dar Al-Harb or not."
- Hani Sibai makes clear what Islamism means.

Counter of Islamist attacks since 9/11.
Islam, the "Religion of Peace", has carried out an average 4 to 5 terrorist attacks a day, every day since 9/11.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
