PODCAST: The Pax Islamica: Totalitarianism, Islamism and ‘Islamo-fascism’

Ana Belén Soage

Ana Belén Soage

In this frank and relevant interview, Matthew Feldman, one of the editors of the Political Religions section of Religion Compass talks with Ana Belén Soage, of the University of Granada. They candidly discuss the nature of contemporary and modern politicised Islam.

Soage argues that the so-called ‘moderate’ forms of politicised Islam differ from the more radical forms (epitomised by groups like Al Qaeda) in degree only, not in kind. Any form of Islamist movement, she argues, necessarily requires the formation of a ‘Pax Islamica’; an essentially totalitarian aim. Islamist movements are therefore inimical to democracy as commonly understood. She also sketches out a surprising profile of her typical Islamist, and explains why the term ‘Islamo-fascism’ is so offensive to ordinary Muslims.

    Maybe you would believe in your

    QUR2AN wich assert in Ala3raf verse 137 the following:

    ((And We let the people who were weak inherit the east of the land and the west of it which We have blessed in it. And the good word of your Lord was

    completed towards the Children of Israel for their patience; and We destroyed what Pharaoh and his people were doing, and what they contrived)).
