Islamofascism...?

I have a question, am I the only one who sees some flaws in this label? Islamic extremists and fascism have nothing to do with each other. One is a religious extremist the other is a method of government. To be more specific it's basically a government ruled by corporations and business. Now, if there's some other meaning here to the label, someone please explain. It may be shocking to some that I'm really not trying to start some political debate here... I just want to know if I'm missing something. And if I'm not, and my assumption that the label is retarded... then why not just come up with something that makes more sense?

    You are correct but the label refers to how the world agreed in the face of Hitlers crimes the civilized world would no longer negotiate with fascism/ Nazism because its nihilistic values were rejected as totally inhumane and there could be no compromise with such barberry. That's how I understand the label Islamofascism, the total rejection of the ideology and its leaders by the civilized world and an definite decision not to negotiate.

    If you think about it Islamofacism is not all that different from Nazism but, with the religious twist.
