We had a close call with Hitler, yet we apparently have learned nothing. The barbarians rise again.
Even more important that what Hitler may have believed about Islam, is how Muslims have embraced discredited strains of European fascism like Stalinism and naziism. Iran and ISIS are Shia and Sunni avatars of Hitler.
He pretty much supported any religion other the Judaism and Christianity which he saw as a product of Judaism.Yitzhak Shamir and the Stern Gang tried to ally with Hitler and later Stalin.There are lots of historic anomalies that we shouldn't read much into.
I must admit that Christianity confuses me as well. Following several thousands of years smiting one another, we end up at a point where “the meek shall inherit the earth.” There is a logical disconnect in this, particularly in light of the fact that since Matthew 5 we have seen no evidence of gentleness gaining advantages over an aggressive humanity. We do not advance human society by allowing bullies to have their way with us. Hitler was a bully; Stalin was a bully; Islam is a bully today and we must deal with Islam on that basis. We must take care, however, that we do not become one of those ourselves.
Maybe but some shallow post about what is really Hitler channeling Nietzsche only makes it clear that you are dealing from emotion and a false sense of exceptionalism.The issue of who is the bully (in the case of the Mufti it as clearly Britain) is subjective.
Duck,I can always count on you to come quaking in to attempt to deflect from the purpose of a blog post which even hints that Islam isn't all sweetness and light -- and to squawk something illogical about "excetionalism."
Yer Fodder's Mustache saidTrow dat doity duck bum OUTTAHERE!
Hitler was Austrian....and this is the ravings of an insane man; almost as dumb as people like Goldhagen who more than implies that "Germans have 'hate Jew genes' in their blood." Trust me, if the Germans are so much better suited to Islam (utterly ridiculous..who'd believe anything Hitler said?), they're getting a good dose of it now. They have largely left Christianity, prayers stop by virtue of that fact, and look what they've got.
Z,The purpose of this blog post wasn't to throw rocks at the German people.Hitler was a demagogue and a propagandist, and it's interesting that he apparently believed that Islam was "the strong man" religion. He also implies that Islam has a militant nature, and Islam does indeed have a militant nature.
Always, I didn't think that's why you blogged it....Yes, he apparently thought this was "the strong man" religion, you're right. Germans were strong in their Christianity (Catholic in the South and Lutheran in the North) and it was, indeed, those stronger Christians who worked hard to rid their country of Hitler, as you know.It does infer more about Germans than I think you meant..Since Islam is moving in there now, BIG time, we'll see how Germans take to it. So far, NO GOOD! Thanks for the explanation.
So, when Merkel says "Islam belongs to Germany" is she saying that removal of the Jews is still high on the German bucket list?
Kid...excellent deduction! Not their bucket list (anymore)...Jews don't even pay taxes in Germany since WWII....Thankfully, while mosques are being built everywhere, Synagogues, too, are going up like crazy! Odd, however...I wonder if some of those building plans will stop or slow down with this huge influx of true Jew Haters?
Thank you. I thought it was a required query.I still have not figured out why Merkel said that. And I still haven't.The conclusion seems absurd, but .... so Angela, tell me, what's up?
It makes sense. If you know more about the pre-Christian German pagans - with whom Hitler identified - you understand his lust for the sword. He hated Christianity, and did seem to attract a number of central Asian mystics to his inner circle. He certainly supported the Grand Mufti - literally - and funded his office and staff in Berlin. Common men with a common purpose. The quote makes perfect sense.
What does Merkel think she's doing?See Merkel stands ground on refugees as 1.5 million seen coming.
Does Germany have a mechanism for impeachment? How much of this BS can be sustained?
Jon...I'm hearing more and more from Germany that the people can't believe she's sticking to this ridiculous amount of immigrants. No mechanism for impeachment, as far as I know, but as there are good Germans who actually still DO love their country and are horrified at the expense and the filth these people are causing Germany, there are more with the leftwing guilt complexes who actually say (and I MEAN "say") that Germany deserves this.....their own ridiculous Joschka Fisher, who was big in Schroeder's cabinet said this is all good, that Germany should fail. I kid you not.
Z,I would think that even in spite of an, apparent, imbalance of kooks, presently, there would eventually have to be a 'tipping-point' as a matter of survival. Currently, it sounds like collective masochism on a scale unprecedented in recorded history!
I'm hearing the tipping point is about reached....SF posted a link at my place on this, too........stay tuned. Germany's in real flux right now and I won't be surprised if they get rid of Angela....God willing. And I was a FAN of hers till now..!!!
B. Waring saidWhen you walk through a crowd Keep your chin up high But keep far away from the park.Keep your chin up highAnd look down your long noseAnd remember this life is no lark.Walk on through the filthBy each bloody stainAs around you victims groan.Walk on, walk on With hate in your heart,And you'll never walk alone.You'll never walk alone.
