Saudi Journalist Declares Radical Islam Worse Than Naziism

I'm not sure about "worse." I would say it's neck and neck, and the Nazis were only worse because they had more physical power to put their venomous philosophy into programatic action.

A brave Saudi named Muhammad al-Sheik has written

The ideas of radical Islam are similar to the ideas that drove the Nazi ideology. If the economic freeze and national depression in 1930 led to the emergency to murderous Nazism, we can say that the economic and cultural failure that grip Arab and Muslim countries today, together with the frustration of many Muslims, are once again driving this murderous philosophy.


I still believe that one of the first tasks for the international community today should be to reconstruct its experience with Nazism and cope with this barbaric, dangerous culture as it did with the Nazi culture.

He also writes (this is paraphrased by the Frontpage article relating his words) that the radical Islamist philosophy is based on a hatred of "the other," blaming the scapegoat for all failure, humiliation, and economic stagnation, which sounds an awful lot like the Nazis.

Thanks to OgreGunner.
