Islamism is an authoritarian political ideology that seeks to impose Islam on society. Thus, it is a form of theocracy. Whilst this definition is valid for the imposition of any form of Islam on society, almost all Islamists adhere to ultra-conservative beliefs such as those of Wahhabi Saudi Arabia.

The intellectual godfather of Islamism is Hassan al-Banna, who founded the Muslim Brotherhood. In effect, he transferred the fascist concept of the 'state' or 'super state' and imposed it upon the Islamic religion. This is why some describe Islamism as a form of Fascism. al-Banna was a known admirer of European Fascists such as Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

Jihadism is the use of violence to achieve Islamism.
Isis is an Islamist group, so are the Muslim Brotherhood and Hiz-but Tahrir.
The MB is a non-violent group in Egypt, but its members are fighting alongside Al-Qaeda in Syria.
Why is it that "Anti-Fascists" are apologists for Islamism?

The religion of peace. It’s followers are called Muslims where they believe there is only one god worthy to be worshiped called “Allah”. They also believe greatly in the last and final messenger Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) to guide mankind to the correct path. :)

Islam is a religon that is followed by 1.8 billion people across the world it’s not a religon of hate it’s a religon that teaches to approach situations with the right mind and solve in a peaceful manner. What’s funny is that haters have explained to you what Islam is even though they have degree in it . They don’t follow it and they aren’t scholers in it. Islam teaches to approach hate with a peaceful solution and not attack any people who are verbally or physically harassing you. That’s Islam and no , Islam isn’t a religion that copied Judaism or Christianity as there beloved prophet Mohammed pbuh faced torture from arabs for claiming their is one god. Adding on to that not only do haters say that arabs created Islam but arabs (Jesus) also created Christianity and Judaism as both were born in the Middle East.

Islam is one religion that is monotheistic, meaning they belive in one god, Allah. Dispite common beliefs, Allah is the same god as the one as Christianity and Judaism. Their prophet is Muhammad.
Islam is just another religion, and not all if them are terrorists.

A monotheistic Abrahamic religion, common in the middle east, founded by the supposed prophet Muhammed and worshipping the deity Allah. According to the religion, "God is One." It is descended from Ishmael (As opposed to Judaism and Christianity, which descended from Isaac.) Adherents (Which are called "Muslims") believe that Biblical figures such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus were prophets of Allah. Another prophet, reffered to as Muhammed, appears only in the Qu'ran (one of the muslim holy books). There are three other associated holy books, the Torah, the Zabur, and the Injil (Gospel.)
Islam is the religion associated with most -stan countries.
