Brown Prof: Islamic Extremism Is Totalitarian

By    |   Thursday, 09 Oct 2014 06:18 PM

The belief by Islamic extremists that those who leave the faith should be killed is similar to the iron-fisted ideology of totalitarian communism, says Dr. Andrew Bostom, a Middle East expert and professor of medicine at Brown University.

"This is no different than at the height of totalitarian communism, and still unfortunately a place like North Korea, criticizing Stalin or criticizing Mao," Bostom said Thursday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"It's absolutely no different, it's a form of religious totalitarianism."

Bostom is the author of "The Legacy of Jihad," published by Prometheus Books.
