The lie that is ‘islamofascism’

“President George Bush, along with other neoconservatives in the US, has adopted the term ‘islamofascist’ to imply that a wide range of organisations are the 21st-century successors of Nazism and communism. This is not only inaccurate, it is deliberately intended to promote the idea of preventive wars.”
