It has come to my attention that President Bush and his administration have been taking less care in moderating their language. Recently, Bush linked Islam to Fascism. This has instilled anger in the Muslim community in the United-States. My concerns were confirmed when I read this story on BBC news.

Seems almost...provocative?

Or maybe the administration is modifying their tone (slowly but surely, and progressively) to further deteriorate public opinion on Muslims everywhere (and particularly in the states). Maybe they're preparing us for another wave of hate, perhaps preceeded by a "terrorist attack"?

What do you guys think?

Well when he used the term Islam he was targeting the religion that on itself is seen as targeting the entire population that follows Islam.

Why he did it? perhaps he wasn't awared of what he was talking about like he susually does sometimes.

Or he is just following the new name given by the Bristish to radical islam.

Now lets point out that the first ones to use it was not US but the British.

He wasn't calling muslims fascist. He was referring to those who use this "peaceful religion" as an excuse to murder people.

Perhaps you're right. Do you have a source/quote or something? Did the country's leader manipulate his words like President Bush?

Language is an essential factor in war and the creation of nessecity for war and as is evident in the last 5 years it has become fundamentaly crucial for this admnistration and it's propaganda towards the slow and steady conceptual habitutation of it's citiznery into connecting anything vile and rancor with Islam. There was no reason to use the term Islam in any way as it's not Islams fight with the west, but different political factions spread out across the Middle East who have suffered tremendously from detrimental U.S foriegn Policy; these constitute criminals, fundamentals, even moderates and some from various sects and affiliations, no way in totality representative of Islam, but a broken mosiac.

Not only Muslims, but reasoned persons should be angered by his remarks.

bush really needs to shake his case of "foot in mouth" disease. he needs to get some speech training, see a professional orator about his problems

It's a pathetic attempt to link past conflicts to this WoT.

The use of the word fascists was decided by Bush's speechwriters / carers - you'll notice he can't actually pronounce the word correctly!

Presumably it's meant to invoke memories of Hitler and thus bolster public support.

It's not the first time this link has been used ie 'the AXIS of evil' - for those of you who know recent history you'll see that this verbal trick has been employed many times.

Islamic Fascism.

Hmm. Quite a catchy word. Used a lot by almost every hothead in the world.

So what exactly is this Islamic Fascism.

Is it a Neologism?
Or maybe an Oxymoron?
Or maybe we are just having Morons on Oxy?

Lol I can't believe this. Muslims are always playing the vitims. They should concentrate on more pressing matters rarther than a legitimate term used by Bush, who has been called a facist himself, along with his 'christian' buddies. They don't complain. The actions of the KKK done in the name of Protestant Christianity clearly had facsist elements, and nearley all Christians will agree wih that.

The Muslim community is doing itself no favours by seeing to justify or Explain terrorist actions by linking it to perceived persection and victimisation.

The fact of the matter is, this islamicly motivated terrorist agenda is facist in nature. The collective muslim brotherhood etc One set of people against others, based on propganda through the Islamic leaders. The dire consquences many muslims find themselves in today are directly from the actions (or inaction) of THEIR leaders, who continue to deflect the blame towards the west, and indoctrinate the future generations to HATE. Sound familiar to Hitler and the rise of facism in Germany and Italy? Yes

If any white non muslim uses the word Islam, he's obviously a racist, war mongering, hate merchant

If he coined the thrase Fascist Islam, or facist muslims, it might be a different story.

What a disgrace. He should have never gotten to that microphone until his handlers could be assured of what he was goind to say. If he can't control his relegious beliefs then he should be on ten second delay or taped off air. He should have never used the Muslim religion in his speech. Does he ever use terms against Christian extreemist? No! What this looks like is a provokative attemp to inflame Iran and Syria as others are talking about if other threads here. Go to to read unbiased/different-bias about what's going on. Then to open your eyes to global opions of people, go (A magazine). No head of state whether elected, selected or coup-de-taut should speak like that in a public address.
