Bush’s Misguided Comparisons

August 21, 2006 § 4 Comments

Mr. Mankoff is a writer for the History News Service and a doctoral student in history and security studies at Yale.

“This comparison between Islamic radicalism and fascism, which some commentators on the Right have trumpeted ever since 9/11, is misguided and ultimately harmful. Because fascism, at least in its most familiar German incarnation, was a genocidal, totalitarian movement, Bushs comparison suggests that Islamic radicalism must, as with the Third Reich, be annihilated militarily.” (J. Mankoff, HNN)

    The comparison rings true for me in the Natan Sharansky “fear society” sense. I’ve written about it a number of times at my blog:

    Thank you for reading Wa Salaam, I truly appreciate every reader and every comment.

    Now, about the article you posted, it shows nothing of Sharansky’s comments on Islamic Society. What it does show is your association of Sharansky’s ideas with your own thoughts of Islamic Society.

    If that is the support for your argument, with all due respect, I must say it is fairly weak.

    Sharansky is jewish likudnik terrorist in the mold of Ariel Sharon, why in the world would anyone take his views seriously is beyond me.

    Ahlan, DB you are by far my most animated reader. I probably enjoy reading your comments more than you enjoy the articles here at Wa Salaam. Thank you for you comments I do appreciate them. Sissy Willis’ article left gaping holes and was not conclusive as she implied in her comment. That destroyed her credibility more than Sharansky’s lunacy.
