This polemic against Islamic extremism highlights the striking parallels between contemporary Islamism and the 20th-century fascism embodied by Hitler and Mussolini. Like those infamous ideologies, Islamism today touts imperialist dreams of world domination, belief in its inherent superiority, contempt for the rest of humanity, and often a murderous agenda. The author, born and raised in Egypt and now living in Germany, not only explains the historical connections between early 20th-century fascist movements in Europe and extremist factions in Islam, but he also traces the fascist tendencies in mainstream Islam that have existed throughout its history. Examining key individuals and episodes from centuries past, the book shows the influence of Islam's earliest exploits on current politics in the Islamic world. The author's incisive analysis exposes the fascist underpinnings of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Shia regime in Iran, ISIS, Salafi and Jihadist ideologies, and more. Forcefully argued and well-researched, this book grew out of a lecture on Islamic fascism that the author gave in Cairo, resulting in a call for his death by three prominent Egyptian clerics.

The recently published National Military Strategic Plan for the War on Terrorism (NMSP-WOT) is to be commended for identifying "ideology" as al Qaeda's center of gravity. The identification of an ideology as the center of gravity rather than an individual or group is a significant shift from a "capture and kill" philosophy to a strategy focused on defeating the root cause of Islamic terrorism. Accordingly, the plan's principal focus is on attacking and countering an ideology that fuels Islamic terrorism. Unfortunately, the NMSP-WOT fails to identify the ideology or suggest ways to counter it. The plan merely describes the ideology as "extremist." This description contributes little to the public's understanding of the threat or to the capabilities of the strategist who ultimately must attack and defeat it. The intent of this article is to identify the ideology of the Islamic terrorists and recommend how to successfully counter it.
Far too ignorant of the histories of the rest of the world, being aware of only the accomplishments of Greece, Rome and Europe, Westerners have been made to believe that their societies represent the most superior examples of civilization. However, the Western value system stems from a misconception that, as in nature, human society too is evolving. The idea derives from the hidden influence of secret societies, who followed the belief in spiritual evolution of the Kabbalah, which taught that history would attain its fulfillment when man would become God, and make his own laws. Therefore, the infamous Illuminati gave its name to the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century, which claimed that human progress must abandon "superstition," meaning Christianity, in favor of "reason." Thus the Illuminati succeeded in bringing about the French and American revolutions, which instituted the separation of Church and State, and from that point forward, the Western values of Humanism, seen to include secularism, human rights, democracy and capitalism, have been celebrated as the culmination of centuries of human intellectual evolution. This is the basis of the propaganda which has been used to foster a Clash of Civilizations, where the Islamic world is presented as stubbornly adhering to the anachronistic idea of "theocracy." Where once the spread of Christianity and civilizing the world were used as pretexts for colonization, today a new White Man's Burden makes use of human rights and democracy to justify imperial aggression. However, because, after centuries of decline, the Islamic world is incapable of mobilizing a defense, the Western powers, as part of their age-old strategy of Divide and Conquer, have fostered the rise of Islamic fundamentalism, to both serve as agent-provocateurs and to malign the image of Islam. These sects, known to scholars as Revivalists, opposed the traditions of classical Islamic scholarship in order to create the opportunity to rewrite the laws o
What is fascism in the twenty first century? What does Fascism mean at the beginning of the twenty-first century? When we pronounce this word, our memory goes back to the years between the two world wars and envisions a dark landscape of violence, dictatorships, and genocide. These images spontaneously surface in the face of the rise of radical right, racism, xenophobia, islamophobia and terrorism, the last of which is often depicted as a form of "Islamic fascism." Beyond some superficial analogies, however, all these contemporary tendencies reveal many differences from historical fascism, probably greater than their affinities. Paradoxically, the fear of terrorism nourishes the populist and racist rights, with Marine Le Pen in France or Donald Trump in the US claiming to be the most effective ramparts against "Jihadist fascism". But since fascism was a product of imperialism, can we define as fascist a terrorist movement whose main target is Western domination? Disentangling these contradictory threads, Enzo Traverso's historical gaze helps to decipher the enigmas of the present. He suggests the concept of post-fascism--a hybrid phenomenon, neither the reproduction of old fascism nor something completely different--to define a set of heterogeneous and transitional movements, suspended between an accomplished past still haunting our memories and an unknown future.
The U.S. military is currently engaged in multiple campaigns against non-state entities throughout the world. "Islamic Fascists" are widely recognized as the U.S.'s enemy in the "War on Terror." This project examines the professed ideology of the current jihadist movement as well as historical, philosophical and ideological similarities between the extremists currently engaged in a campaign against western culture and the non-communist authoritarian regimes in Europe prior to and during World War II. The research reveals significant commonality between the movements and may show some insight into the movement's motivations and objectives.
Fascism is not a modern' era phenomenon nor is it unique. It has been the de-facto organizing principle of mankind for most of history. Paganism is a form of pre-modern fascism. Most religious orthodoxies are of course premised on pagan cults. Modern fascism uses the guise of spirituality in the form of paganism to spiritually justify its assault on civilization. When the two are fused spiritual paganism with modern fascism you have a violent and hate-filled philosophy that finds its expression in Hitlerism, Communism and Islam. This book compares these three modern forms of an age old evil that has been the main obstacle to human progress. This book was written after extensive research, travel, interviews and help from others more knowledgeable on certain topics. I don't pretend to be an expert in all the areas of historical political and economic development. Nor am I posing as the expert investigator on any of the chosen themes that populate the work. Thousands of more competent analysts exist in each area. I wrote this book to objectively narrate a common thread and threat in human history, namely that of Fascism and its orientalist' genetic composition. It is important in life to impartially record reality, to see the world for what it is and to defend our civilization against utopia's, fantasies and evil. In this regard we need more literature and expositions which make the link between the various ideologies which are in essence pagan cults; their commonality throughout history; and their threat to civilization. It is the threat posed to civilization by immoderate Islam another type of pagan cult that prompted the creation of this summary work. Let me explain as well what this book is not. It is not a diatribe against individual Muslims; it is not a declaration of hate against any non-Western people, lands or empires; it is not intended to be the most detailed study of any of the fascist cults past or present; and it is not intended to supplant any of the exi

Echoes of Memory allows the reader to travel back to a time that was simple and wholesome. Where the pace of life was slow, and the soul was unencumbered with the fast paced life of today. Where people struggled with The Great Depression, and were poor, but possessed a bountiful richness when it came to family and friends. It's a story about life and love, of good times and bad. It's about beginnings and endings, of dreams realized and dreams lost. It's about promises made and kept, and others broken through dishonesty, abandonment, and betrayal. It's about a country girl, and the struggles she went through. Struggles not unlike our own, for in many ways, her story is our story.
The book explains how the much-dreaded fascism continues till this date in the form of de facto colonization and how is it depriving people in the West from reaching the truth and people in the Muslim world from excercising their right to self-detrmination.
This book conceptualises European Court of Human Rights' judgments on Islamic dress as manifestations of the fascist impulse in modern human rights law. Human rights are thus not an antidote to fascism but are constituted through a fascist inflection and implicated in circulating fascism in the everyday. The inability of human rights to say 'no' to laws regulating and criminalising Islamic dress in Europe engenders an institutional Islamophobia in the Law and Islamic dress debate in Europe. The author interrogates the historical emergence of human rights, through a methodology of interdisciplinary, theoretical oscillations between feminism, decolonial, phenomenological and neo-Marxist thought to establish the rights/fascism dialectic. She argues that beyond exclusion and erasure the ownership of rights discourse enables the exploitation of racialised and gendered bodies for the maintenance of material and epistemological privilege with a white, Christian, male norm. It is this moment of ownership, where rights are both propertied and property, that constitutes the rights/fascism dialectic. The author goes on to argue that the rights/fascism dialectic operates at the heart of the Islamic dress debate in Europe to create the impossibility and instrumentalisation of Muslim women's bodies in European public space. The book challenges shifting legal justifications by exposing the functioning of capital, colonialism, patriarchy and power at the European Court of Human Rights in key cases such as Sahin v Turkey and SAS v France. Theoretical insights of the rights/fascism dialectic are applied to the law and Islamic dress debate in the multicultural UK, assimilationist France and at the ECtHR. The conclusion is that the Islamic dress debate in Europe manifests the gender and racial differentiation and instrumentalisation that is essential to the maintenance of human rights and the modern, capitalist state in which rights are enmeshed.
Many years after 9/11 we are still struggling to categorize groups like Al Qaeda, home-grown cells and others that claim to be perpetrating and justifying terrorist acts under the banner of jihad. This book introduces the concept of 'neojihadism' as a new form of political organization, grand narrative, global subculture, counterculture and theological understanding, with an approach to political violence that is unique to the post-Cold War period. What these groups espouse and enact differs radically from fascism, totalitarianism, cults, jihad and even jihadism. Neojihadism takes an interdisciplinary approach that fuses comparative politics, subcultural studies, Islamic studies, and terrorism studies. It cites examples from global, regional and nationally based terrorist groups to illustrate the diversity within the movement. Additionally, it draws from unique primary materials including recorded conversations of terrorists preparing for attacks, captured by electronic bugging devices and telephone wiretaps to help to test the extent to which the term 'neojihadism' is a significant political and theological departure from previous Islamist group experiences. This fascinating book will be an invaluable resource for academics, and undergraduate and postgraduate students of terrorism studies, political science, international relations, comparative religion, and Islamic studies.
This book explores the relationship between Iranian nationalism and Islam, especially Shi'ism as the adopted official religion of the country by the founder of the Safavid Dynasty in 1501 A.D. It covers selected periods in fourteen centuries of theIranian history with greater emphasis on the last two centuries where secular Western reformist ideas overlap with progressive religious thinking, resulting in the COnsitutional Movement of 1905-1909.
Confronting Fascism in Egypt offers a new reading of the political and intellectual culture of Egypt during the interwar era. Though scholarship has commonly emphasized Arab political and military support of Axis powers, this work reveals that the shapers of Egyptian public opinion were largely unreceptive to fascism, openly rejecting totalitarian ideas and practices, Nazi racism, and Italy's and Germany's expansionist and imperialist agendas. The majority (although not all) of Egyptian voices supported liberal democracy against the fascist challenge, and most Egyptians sought to improve and reform, rather than to replace and destroy, the existing constitutional and parliamentary system. The authors place Egyptian public discourse in the broader context of the complex public sphere within which debate unfolded—in Egypt's large and vibrant network of daily newspapers, as well as the weekly or monthly opinion journals—emphasizing the open, diverse, and pluralistic nature of the interwar political and cultural arena. In examining Muslim views of fascism at the moment when classical fascism was at its peak, this enlightening book seriously challenges the recent assumption of an inherent Muslim predisposition toward authoritarianism, totalitarianism, and "Islamo-Fascism."
