Palestine Chronicle - Anthony DiMaggio: Who are the Useful Idiots?

Palestine Chronicle - Anthony DiMaggio: Who are the Useful Idiots?:
The answer here is the media who obviously "informed" some of our speakers at the recent VFP event Iraq Vets Speak Out. The article describes the term they used "Islamofascism" thus:
"Aside from the systematic misrepresentations of Islam, we should also note that any equation of Islamism with Fascism represents more of a racist scare tactic than an exercise in legitimate intellectual thought. The notion that Islamism and Nazism are somehow interrelated is, to put it simply, fraudulent. As American journalist Eric Margolis explains: 'There is nothing in any part of the Muslim World that resembles the corporate fascist states of western history…The Muslim world is replete with brutal dictatorships, feudal monarchies, and corrupt military-run states, but none of these regimes, however deplorable, fits the standard definition of fascism. Most, in fact, are America's allies.' "
