Islamofascism

noun; compounding
Term to describe the practice of radical Islam, of which its acts are akin to fascism A political commentator on Fox News was expressing his strong opinion against the practice of extremist violent Islam. He is known for becoming very worked up and coined this word to describe a type of religious practitioner he disagrees with. I believe he compares these activities with Fascism because of Fascism's usual suppression of the group's opposition through terror and the belligerent or violent nature of the group.
 
We, the people, are not accepting the fact that the war against Islamofascism will require great sacrifice on our parts.
Etymology : Islam from Syriac aslem 'to make peace, surrender' + o 'linker' + fascism from Italian fascismo from fascio 'group' from Latin fascis 'bundle'
