Fred Thompson, Ron Paul disagree on "Islamic Fascism"

As we reported, candidate Fred Thompson launched his campaign as an aggressive proponent of the Iraq occupation and the War on Terror by invoking the specter of "Islamic Fascism."

"It is a global war -- Islamic fascism has declared it upon us,"

"They play by no rules and they are intent on bringing down Western civilization and the United States of America."

Ron Paul, the Republican party's anti-war candidate, confronted Thompson's heated language head on. When a reporter from the Arab-American News asked Ron Paul what he thought of the term "Islamic fascism," Paul responded,

"It's a false term to make people think we're fighting Hitler,"

"It's war propaganda designed to generate fear so that the war has to be spread."
