According to Merriam-Webster, "... often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition 2 : a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control " Both definitions seem to fit quite well into the Quranic worldview.

The Koran was written in the 7th century and has nothing to do with fascism, which was a European movement with intellectual roots in 19th and 20th century Europe. This isn't too say that Islamic fundamentalism isn't evil. But it's not "fascist."
