...I heard one television interviewer ask a Muslim spokesperson if he thought that Mr Bush's "name-calling" had any point.

The word "fascism" means an extreme totalitarian system that suppresses human rights and democratic freedoms.
Islamic fundamentalism is fascistic in the precise, technical sense of the word.
