Author Raymond Ibrahim says that Islamism is the “world’s most dangerous ideology,” explaining its similarities to past totalitarian systems like fascism and communism in a new video for Prager University.
Detailing his belief that fascism posed a global challenge in the first half of the 20th century and that communism dominated the second half of the century, Ibrahim said that radical Islam is the world’s most pressing contemporary problem.
“Islamism [is] a radical and often violent form of Islam,” he said, going on to draw specific parallels between radical Islam and the main threats that dominated the international scene throughout the 20th century. “Like fascism and communism, Islamism is totalitarian in nature. The state controls everything … Islamism is inherently expansionist.”
