The islamism is a totalitarian doctrine?
“Politically, of course. It is a totalitarian ideology that uses the figure of a charismatic super-leader. The Western public opinion is near to render herself with all this. I see her doubting, very worried to offend the religious sentiment of people that uses God as a excuse for terror. We have arrived to consider the cartoons of Mohammed and the intimidation and the menace just the same. It’s absurd to say: “Well, we menace you, but you have provoked it yourself”. We are mistaking the captif with the violent”.
