“Islam and the ‘Sexual Ethics’ of Jihad Slavery”

Sociologist Jules Monnerot’s 1949 book, “Sociology of Communism,” made very explicit connections between Islamic and 20th-century Communist totalitarianism. The title of his first chapter dubbed Communism as “The Twentieth-Century Islam.” Monnerot elucidates these two primary shared characteristics of Islam and Communism: “conversion”—followed by subversion—from within, and the fusion of “religion” and state.
