Daniel Benjamin, from the Center for Strategic and International Studies, examines the term “Islamo-fascism“:

“There is no sense in which jihadists embrace fascist ideology as it was developed by Mussolini or anyone else who was associated with the term,” he said.

“This is an epithet, a way of arousing strong emotion and tarnishing one’s opponent, but it doesn’t tell us anything about the content of their beliefs.

“The people who are trying to kill us, Sunni jihadist terrorists, are a very, very different breed.”
