‘It is Islamic fascism’

“By now it should be patently clear that we in the West are at war with a hydra-headed and barbaric enemy that has not a shred of humanity and relishes the bloodletting of tens of thousands of innocents, including other Muslims. It is at least as brutal as the Nazis and communist enemies we have faced in the past. Although radical Islam is not militarily as powerful as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union, it has the huge strategic advantage of suicide bombing, which is immune to deterrence. Should any of its constituent elements – the Iranian Government or al-Qa’ida – acquire nuclear weapons, it will likely attempt genocide against Israel and create devastation in the West of an unprecedented kind.”

Stephen Morris in The Australian, 14 August 2005
