Mark the return of the Hidden Imam on one of their calendars

Via Sweetness and Light, it looks like Hezbollah may be planning for their version of a "Thousand Year Reich." A look at the Imam al Mahdi Scouts might take you back to the Germany of the late 1930s.

A lot of people don't like the term Islamofascist. Maybe it's not accurate. Maybe we're wrong to say the Nazis were fascists. What makes a fascist a fascist anyway?

BTW: I also learned some about Ayatollah Khameini, who served as Ayatollah Khomeini's security chief as the latter ascended to leadership of Iran. He seems an ambitious sort of humble imam.

It really doesn't matter if it's technically correct. The image it conveys is accurate, however much the politcally correct crowd/language nitpickers complain.

Yeah, political labels have no real meaning. And of course, as a school teacher you know that there is simply no way to look up a definitive answer to your question about what makes a fascist a fascist, or to arrive at some meaningful consensus on the definition, so, hey, we can just use it any way we want.
