‘Islamofascism’ added to Oxford dictionary

In its latest update, the Oxford English Dictionary now includes “Islamofascism” and related words, which came into vogue in recent years in the context of President Bush’s “war on terror.”
Islamofascism is one of nearly 2,700 new entries added to the dictionary in the last three months, according to a press release from Oxford University Press.
Other words added to the dictionary include Islamofascist, Islamophobe, Islamophobic and jihadi.
The dictionary’s subscription-only Web site, accessed Tuesday afternoon by RAW STORY, defined Islamofascism as, “the advocacy or practice of a form of Islam perceived as authoritarian, intolerant, or extremist; [specifically] Islamic fundamentalism regarded in this way.” The dictionary’s first citation of the phrase comes from a 1990 article in London’s Independent, which observed “authoritarian government, not to say ‘Islamo-fascism’, is the rule rather than the exception” in Islamic societies.[..]
Islamophobia is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as “hatred or fear of Islam, [especially] as a political force; hostility or prejudice towards Muslims.”
The term was introduced by a French writer to describe the Iranian Revolution of 1978, according to a Wall Street Journal column by Roger Scruton.

For nogen uanset politisk observans, blev Faklen engang anset for et intellektuelt tidsskrift. Dette er ganske uretfærdigt da Faklen skrives af meget dumme mennesker, der grundlæggende ikke forstår en skid. Et eksempel er den seneste og meget gennemarbejde postering på Faklen.dk, hvor man prøver at gøre op med Dansk Folkepartis Søren Espersens kronik i Jyllands-Posten d. 26/6 og fejler pinagtigt fælt…………………………….

Medicine and engineering have long been the two most prestigious professions for Muslims. Some of the Arab world’s most famous writers and politicians have studied these disciplines. But so too have its most notorious extremists, including Osama bin Laden, who trained as an engineer, and Ayman al-Zawahiri, his deputy, who qualified as a doctor.
In Egypt, the top echelons of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood have long been full of doctors, engineers and geologists, while Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist party, is also dominated by such professionals, many of whom studied in Egypt. Recruiting such pillars of the community – who are often driven by strong ambition and convictions and may also be easily swayed by political extremism – has therefore been a prime aim of al-Qaeda. It has sought, especially, to radicalise Muslim medical and engineering students overseas, where they are often perplexed by a liberal culture, isolated from their families and more easily indoctrinated. Many, especially those from poor families, are proud of their achievements and believe that they have a right to be heeded.

In many Middle Eastern countries, doctors, as leaders in their communities, are sucked into politics and become radicalised when they run into the inevitable corruption and frustrations. Dr George Habash, the leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, was a classic example and was among the most extreme of the Palestinian militants in the 1970s and 1980s.

En dansker møder Thomas Jefferson
Dagens klumme: Henrik Gade Jensen interviewer 264 år gamle Thomas Jefferson i anledning af, at 4. juli er USA nationaldag.
Af Henrik Gade Jensen
…………Men 13 små kolonier mod det britiske imperium. Hvordan kunne I tro på, I ikke ville blive knust af overmagten og undertrykt endnu mere?

“Vi kunne fornemme en stor solidaritet med vores frihedssag i Europa, selv i dit land, Danmark, ville digtere melde sig frivilligt til kampen på vores side, så vi følte tiden var moden, og med George Washington havde vi den rette person til at føre vore tropper til sejr.” 180 Grader

Danmark skriker efter svenskar
Det råder kraftig arbetskraftbrist på den danska sidan av Öresund. Trots att rekordmånga svenskar nu arbetar i Danmark ökar efterfrågan på svensk arbetskraft och svenska arbetsgivare spås få svårt att rekrytera personal. [..]
“Att ha 3.000 mer i plånboken efter alla utgifter är vanligt. Sedan kan en del tjäna betydligt mer än så på att arbeta i Danmark. Ekonomer till exempel kan få väldigt bra betalt i Köpenhamn. Ingångslönen är minst 30.000 danskar kronor“, säger Anders Olshov.

Den danska modellen
Som jag ser det är skillnaden politisk. I Danmark lägger sig inte staten i arbetsmarknaden genom lagstiftning. Villkoren görs upp mellan parterna genom kollektivavtal. Jag kan inte låta bli att fråga dansken vad det här betyder för socialdemokraterna i Danmark. “Det var mycket länge sen de haft den starka ställning som de har i Sverige”, säger han. [..]
Den danska modellen innehåller mer solidaritet och jämlikhet än den svenska. Vi köpte löntagarnas trygghet till priset av ett fastlåst system, där ingen vågar flytta på sig. Där arbetsgivare inte vågar anställa för att man då tar på sig alltför stort ansvar. Och allt fler hamnade utanför systemet. Detta är en verklig utmaning för svensk socialdemokrati.
