I don't much set much store on wikipedia for views on politics. It depends who holds editorial control.sorted
Is it not correct to say that fundamentalist Salaffi Islam holds chauvinist, xenophobic, theocratic, homophobic, transphobic, and reactionary views in the extreme?
Fundamentalist Islam is (self evidently) an expression of Islamic conservatism. An extremely conservative expression. While plenty of Muslims hold a more liberal interpretation of their faith, when you get to the numpties of ISIS and so forth, there is no other word to describe that dogma other than ultra conservative and far right wing.
Contrast to left wing politics:
In any event, this is not a thread about Islamic terrorism. We have a thread for that. This is a thread about people (such as yourself) who constantly feel the need to deflect from the risk posed by far right wing terrorism, especially with regards to constantly seeking to establish some kind of parity with the risk posed by so called left wing terrorists.
As I said before fundamentalist Islam is not left or right. It could be classed as radicalism against the conservative mainstream.
I reckon if you have Milton Friedman and Usama Bin Laden grouped together then maybe you have your classifications wrong.
