Why they are fascists

It cannot be more clearly stated than it is by Amir Taheri here:
...this enemy does want something specific: to take full control of your lives, dictate every single move you make round the clock and, if you dare resist, he will feel it his divine duty to kill you.

See this on the Global War on Fascism - and here's a link to the Dean Ismay post on post on "Calling Fascists What They Are."

Update: Greyhawk offers up more examples of the fascist mindset here as he discusses the killing of the Egyptian ambassador to Iraq as punishment for Egypt's "apostate" and "infidel" actions. The message is clear: "Conform or die." If you wonder why the "moderate" Muslim voices have been muted, it's because they fear retribution. And the radical clerics can cite verse and scripture that justifies such acts against those who argue moderation. As Taheri correctly notes:
There are many Muslims who believe that the idea that all other faiths have been “abrogated” and that the whole of mankind should be united under the banner of Islam must be dropped as a dangerous anachronism. But to the Islamist those Muslims who think like that are themselves regarded as lapsed, and deserving of death."
Like the millions of Germans who watched a fascist state do evil in their name and then wished they hadn't, let the moderate Muslims understand that being passive is not the answer. As Edmund Burke said so well, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

Update2: It's not like they're keeping their intentions a secret or anything. (Hat tip: Watcher of Weasels).
