Assisted suicide

In the face of the Islamic monster, Europe returns to its red roots. "The West is Red Again", in the latest edition of Newsweek, discusses Europe's turn to bad old fashioned socialism.

What's the upshot for Europe? As usual, this MSM treatment, at best, skirts the issue but hints at the truth in this one excerpt regarding the recent Italian elections:
...Among their leading lights: Oliviero Diliberto of the Party of Italian Communists, who has distinguished himself by embracing the causes of Hamas and Hizbullah, among others.

'Among others'? So who would these unnamed others be, al Qaeda and Islamic Jihad?

So there you have it. The voters of Italy and the protesting masses in France have spoken. To me, chosing a dead-end ideology in this day and age will amount to little more than assisted suicide. Hope dims a bit more.

Romano Prodi, the Italian President-elect, made it his very first priority to meet with Hamas.

It seems to me that trying to associate the Italian communist party with al Qaeda and jihad movements is more than a little forced. Equating their (leader's) support for Hamas and Hizbullah with support for al Qaeda is just an ignorant and unwarranted conflation of two very different movements. Rather than focusing on the important differences between the two, you have only centered on what you perceive to be their similarities, and assumed that support for one logically entails support for the other. That's just a poor argument.

On top of that, the predicate you apply to communism (or leftism in general) - i.e. 'a dead-end ideology' - could just as equally apply to any number of other ideologies, including for example, neoliberalism which undoubtedly has a number of major sustainability issues (e.g. environmental effects, depletion of resources, increased economic and social inequalities, etc.). In the long-run I can't think of a single ideology that isn't a dead-end, so to single out communism is nothing more than a rhetorical device, with no real validity.
