Did He Really Mean That?

Democrat/Socialist Senator Joseph Biden in a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece:

The intersection of al Qaeda with the world’s most lethal weapons is a deadly serious problem. Al Qaeda must be destroyed. But to compare terrorism with an all-encompassing ideology like communism and fascism is evidence of profound confusion.

With respect to Senator Biden, since when is Islamic jihad not an all-encompassing ideology?
