Saudi warns against accusing Muslims of fascism [barf]

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia (AFP) - Saudi Arabia warned against accusing Muslims of terrorism and fascism, in an apparent reference to US President George W. Bush's claim that the United States is at war with "Islamic fascists".

The Saudi government "called on everyone to realize that terrorism has no religion or nationality", said a cabinet statement carried by the official SPA news agency.

It "warned against hurling charges of terrorism and fascism at Muslims without regard to the spotless history of Islamic civilization", the statement said.

"What Islam is being accused of today, like fascism, is primarily a Western cultural product," it added, calling for close international cooperation to combat terrorism.

The Saudi government, a close ally of the US, did not elaborate, but its remarks came four days after Bush said that his country was "at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation".

Bush made his comments after Britain announced it had disrupted an alleged terror plot to bomb planes bound for the US.

The Middle East was roiled by the same fascist influences that European countries were in the 1930s. Fascism was regarded by many of the national elites as the wave of the future.

99% of the armed conflicts in the world today have one thing in common. Hey Mr. Saudi Arabian Government! Can you tell me what it is?

How disappointing. There was a time when fascists didn't feel the need to deny being fascists, they proudly proclaimed it to the world!

What about the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem? He was an Islamic fascist. What about the Baathists? They're Islamic fascists. How about the Muslim soldiers recruited by Hitler?

Terrorism is a tactic, employed primarily by arab muslims (though not exclusively) against the civilized world. I'm in no way saying that all arabs or muslims are terrorists. However from anecdotal evidence, the vast majority of terrorists in the world just happen to be arab muslims today. And it seems that the majority of arab and/or muslim countries give at least tacit approval (though in many cases, such as Iran and Syria, it is blatantly state sponsored) to the use of terrorism.
