Wallowing in Anachronism

Terrorism is a tactic, a means to an end. Islam, conversely, is the ideology behind modern terrorism. It’s an ideology that is also inherently fascist. It is no coincidence that these terrorist-fascists happen to be Muslim, for Islam itself is a clerical-fascist system of belief.

--Mark Alexander.
Considering that Islam arose in the 7th Century, and fascism in the 20th, this is a neat trick. "Fascist" has become a political swear-word, signifying nothing.

One could argue that movements within modern Islam have aped fascism or borrowed from it, although even this is more true of secular movements, like the Ba'ath and the Nasserists.

Alexander seems to be saying he doesn't like Islam, 'cause Muslims are mean.
