Condemning mosque, Gingrich echoed Mussolini

Ben Smith points out:

Gingrich:

There should be no mosque near Ground Zero in New York so long as there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia.

Which looks a lot like:

Mussolini:

There will be a mosque in Rome ... only when a Roman Catholic church is permitted in Mecca.

Which reminds me of:

Finkelstein

The mythology of conquest is remarkably uniform - or, less charitably, banal.
