Was Hitler a Racist Killer or also Genius?

1-    Warning

 Bill O’Reilly, Julia Gasper and Geert Wilders compared the Koran with Hitler’s Mein Kamph. They wanted to show that violence was a common feature in the two books! Geert Wilders went to the extent of producing a cinematic commentary about Islam by the name of Fitna (division among people). The film attempts to demonstrate that the Koran motivates its followers to hate all who violate Islamic teachings. The film argues that Islam encourages—among other things—acts of terrorism, anti-Semitism, violence against women, violence and subjugation of “infidels” and against homosexuals. A large part of the film details the influence of Islam on the Netherlands. Wilders, a prominent critic of Islam, described the film as “a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamization“.

Nature has written a letter of discredit upon the faces of these Islamophobe hate mongers, a letter of hatred and bigotry. Such hatred is portrayed in their thoughts which they express in words, and worse is what their bosoms conceal. They bite at us their fingers enraged. I say to them, “Die in your rage, surely God encompasses the things you do.”

Comparing the Koran with Hitler’s book ‘Mein Kamph’ is illogic and utterly absurd. It is considerably unscientific to compare a divine Book with a book characterized by hatred and racism. There is no one single common attribute in either book that deserves such silly comparison. If by such unjust comparison they were trying to prove that both books contain violence, the verses of war in the Koran are reasonably justified. Through these verses the Prophet was directed to defend his religion against those who persecuted him for eleven continuous years. The believers had to fight in order to defend their religion against the pagans, the idolaters and the polytheists of Makka. The believers were but executing the commands of their Lord and were not killing unjustly innocent people as the islamophobe hate mongers claim.

On the other hand, child Murder, Rape, torture, genocide, incest, tyranny, mass slaughter of innocents, slavery, killing pregnant women, mutilation, child molestation, infanticide, intolerance, racism, hate, and much more  are found in the Bibles we have today. In the Bible the word slaughter appears at least 56 times, slay appears 118 times, slew shows up 171 times, smote is written more than 226 times. The contemporary Bibles contain a lot of violence, and all these violent acts are credited to the concept of divinity!

I have before me now 321 violent verses from the contemporary Bibles. To give just one example:

“Take all the heads of the people and hang them up before the Lord against the sun.”  ( Numbers 25:4, direct quote from YAHWEH).

The Koran is a book of law and prayer, a book of wisdom and invocation, a book of divine commands to mankind. It is the Holy Book of wisdom containing all the principles necessary for man’s happiness both in this world and the next.

The Koran supersedes previous revelations because it came directly from Allah, and is not a second-hand book written by men after the extinction of authentic divine Books.

…And We have given thee a Remembrance (the Koran) from Us (Taha, 99).

The Koran is in records held greatly in honor, exalted in dignity, kept pure and holy, written by the hands of scribes (angels) honorable, pious and just.

No indeed; it is a Reminder, and whoso wills, shall remember it, upon pages high – honored, uplifted, purified, by the hands of scribes noble, pious (Abasa, 11-16).

The Holy Koran is the divine Word of Allah to the Prophet Muhammad to save mankind from darkness unto light:

A Book We have sent down to thee that thou mayest bring forth mankind from the shadows to the light by the leave of their Lord, to the path of the All-Mighty, the All-Laudable (Ibrahîm, 1).

Allah sent the Koran as the Book in truth and the balance to judge between right and wrong:

It is Allah  who has sent down the Book with the truth, and also the Balance.

And what shall make thee know? Haply the Hour is nigh (Ash-Shura, 17).

Allah made the preservation of earlier Scriptures the responsibilities of the followers of these Books. Allah says:

…For to them was entrusted the protection of Allah’s Books, as they were witnesses thereto (Al-Maidah, 44).

But the people of the Book were negligent of this; distorted the Books with their interpolations and the reversal of some facts. The present Gospels, as attested by Christian scholars, were written by historians. They are therefore not totally authentic. Parts of these books are authentic, others are fabricated. The falsehood in them supersedes the truth, especially in those parts which deify Jesus Christ and make him God or the son of God. Also, the hundreds of verses indicating severe violence included in them prove that they were adulterated. This distortion however, was not a total loss, because God wished to send another Scripture whose teachings and principles will serve as a reference for checking the authenticity of the present altered divine books.

God did not give the responsibility of protecting the Koran to man. Knowing that the Koran was the last revelation to mankind, God pledged to protect it Himself from human tampering and guards it from corruption.

It is We who have sent down the Remembrance (Koran) and surely We will guard it (from corruption) (Al-hijr, 9).

The Koran guides to righteousness and enlightens mankind to the truth:

Surely this Koran guides to the way that is straightest and gives good tidings to the believers who do deeds of righteousness, that theirs shall be a great wage, and that those who do not believe in the world to come – We have prepared for them a painful chastisement (Al-Isra’ 9, 10).

The Koran is a book announcing blissful tidings to those who believe in the Oneness of God and fear Him by abstaining from all kinds of sins, and love God much by performing all kinds of good deeds:

A sending down from the Merciful, the Compassionate. A Book whose signs have been distinguished as an Arabic Koran for a people having knowledge, good tidings to bear, and warning, but most of them have turned away, and do not give ear (Fussilat 2-4).

If comparison is to be made between the Koran and any other book, it could be undertaken between the Koran and the other corrupted divine Books. In such comparison the Koran will serve as a reference Book, checking the authenticity of the other deviated divine Books. This is understood by the fact that after the corruption of the older revelations, the Koran comes to confirm the true and original Message of all prophets (Islamic monotheism), and to guard it, or act as a check to its interpretation. The Koran safeguards the original Books for it has preserved within it the teachings of all the former Books. It watches over these books in the sense that it will not let their true teachings to be lost. It supports and upholds these Books in the sense that it corroborates the Word of God which has remained intact in them. It stands as a witness because it bears testimony to the Word of God contained in these books. It testifies the truth that is in the old corrupted Books, and falsifies the falsehood that is added to them. What is confirmed by the Koran is the Word of God and what is against it is that of the people.

The Koran is not a Book to be trifled with. Those messing around with the Koran are not aware of the divine penalties awaiting them. They give themselves the right to attack the Book of Islam because they think that the Koran is not a divine Book and that Muhammad has invented it.  But what would be the case if the Koran was a true Book, and Muhammad was the last of the Prophets, and Allah (God) was the only Creator? The consequences of their evil deed would be horrible: tremendous calamities befalling them in the worldly life, severe torture in the grave until the Resurrection Day, and then burning in Hell for eternity.

Allah is swift in reckoning, and will recompense them for what they were forging. Because Allah knows the thoughts in the breasts, and all humans will die and be accountable to Allah, Muslims do not care much about what these ignorant parrots repeat without thinking. They are but compiling over their heads sins over sins, thus leading their wretched souls to destruction. Their attack against Allah and His seal of the prophets is disastrous. An eternal chastisement in Hell is their final abode. Sufficient for them shall be the Fire, at which they shall be roasted — an evil homecoming!

These hate mongers who are totally ignorant of Islam, forgot that unto Allah they shall be returned. What shall be their recompense but degradation in the present life, and on the Day of Resurrection to be returned unto the most terrible chastisement?  Even so Allah shall show them their evil works and never shall they issue from the Fire. They shall be left in Hell debased and utterly humbled.

The Islamophobe hate mongers are people corrupt. They have bought error at the price of guidance, and their plot against Islam has not profited them. Allah has led them astray, and whom Allah leads astray, he will not find for him a way. Allah will not forgive them; neither guides them on any road.

As the Koran says:

Those are they that have bought error at the price of guidance, and chastisement at the price of pardon; how patiently they shall endure the Fire! (Al-Baqarah, 175).

 These ignorant morons cannot hurt Muslims, because Muslims are rightly guided. In Allah Muslims have put their trust and they are certain that unto Him all matters are returned. Muslims are the ones who prosper because they are upon guidance from their Lord. True guidance is a bounty from Allah, He gives it unto whomsoever He will of His servants.

Allah says in the Koran:

To God belongs the Unseen in the heavens and the earth. To Him the whole matter shall be returned; so serve Him, and put thy trust in Him. Thy Lord is not heedless of the things you do (Ibrahîm, 43).

The plot of Allah’s enemies against Islam has not profited them. If they could see when they shall hang their heads before their Lord saying, “Now O Allah, we have seen the truth and the justice of the Day of Judgment, would you send us back to make up for what we did wrong?’ But it will be too late.

The Koran says:

Ah, if thou couldst see the guilty hanging their heads before their Lord! ’Our Lord, we have seen and heard; now return us, that we may do righteousness, for we have sure faith.’(Al-Sajdah, 12).

These hate mongers are the heedless of all truth. Allah has created them for Hell. They have hearts wherewith they understand not, eyes wherewith they see not, and ears wherewith they hear not. They are like cattle – nay more misguided for they are heedless of warning.

The Koran says:

We have created for Gehenna (Hell) many jinn and men; they have hearts, but understand not with them; they have eyes, but perceive not with them; they have ears, but hear not with them. They are like cattle; nay, rather they are further astray. Those – they are the heedless (Al-A’raf, 179).

Now they are insolent in the land waxing pride. But how will it be when Allah gathers them for a day whereon is no doubt, and every soul shall be paid in full what it has earned?

The enemies of Islam if they had everything on earth, and twice repeated, to give as ransom for the penalty of the Day of Judgment, it would never be accepted of them, theirs would be a grievous penalty.  Their wish will be to get out of the fire, but never will they get out of it: their penalty will be one that endures.

As we read in the Koran:

The unbelievers, though they possessed all that is in the earth, and the like of it with it, to ransom themselves from the chastisement of the Day of Resurrection thereby, it would not be accepted of them; for them awaits a painful chastisement. They will desire to come forth from the Fire, but they will not come forth from it; for them awaits a lasting chastisement (Al-Maidah 36, 37).

If we could but see when they will be held over the Fire! They will say, ‘Would that we were but sent back to the world! Then we would not deny Allah’s revelations, and we would be of the believers!”

Allah says in the Koran:

If thou couldst see when they are stationed before the fire, and they say, ‘Would that we might be returned, and then not cry lies to the signs of our Lord, but that we might be among the believers!’ (Al-An’am, 27).

If we could but see when they will be brought and made to stand in front of their lord! He will say, ‘Is not the Resurrection and the taking of the accounts the truth?’ They will say, ‘Yes by our Lord!’ he will then say, ‘So test you the torment because you used not to believe.’

The Koran says:

If thou couldst see when they are stationed before their Lord! He will say, ‘Is not this the truth?’ They will say, ‘yes indeed, by our Lord!’ He will say, ‘then taste the chastisement for your unbelief’ (Al-An’am, 30).

On the Day of resurrection, the enemies of Allah shall be cast into the Fire, as often as their skins are roasted through, Allah shall change them for fresh skins that they may taste the punishment.

Surely those who disbelieve in Our signs We shall certainly roast them at a Fire; as often as their skins are wholly burned, We shall give them in exchange other skins, that they may taste the chastisement. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise (Al-Nisa’, 56).

The enemies of Allah would like to blow out Allah’s light as it is a cause of offence to them. They distort the Message of Allah by the false words of their mouth. Their wish is to put out the light of truth for they are people of darkness, but Allah will perfect His light, and makes it shine all the brighter in the eyes of men. Every religion which commends itself widely to human beings and lasts through some space of time has a glimpse of truth in it. But Islam being the perfect light of truth is bound to prevail. As the greater light through its true strength, outshines all lesser lights, so will Islam outshine all else, in spite of the displeasure of those to whom light is an offence.

The divine disposition of events in the coming of Islam and its promulgation by the Holy Prophet are themselves evidence of the truth of Islam and its all- reaching character; for there is nothing which it has not influenced (1).

Allah has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to make it victorious over all other religions even though the unbelievers may hate it.

It is He who has sent His Messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, that He may uplift it above every religion, though the unbelievers be averse. (Al-Tawba, 330.

Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam is sent to teach and direct people on the way. He is not sent to force their will, or to punish them, except insofar as he may receive authority to do so. Punishment belongs to Allah alone. And punishment is certain in the Hereafter, when true values will be restored.

As we read in the Koran:

Thou art not responsible for guiding them; but God guides whomsoever He will… ( Al-Baqarah, 272).

The Koran also says:

Then reminds them! Thou art only a reminder; thou art not charged to oversee them. But he who turns his back, and disbelieves Allah shall chastise him with the greatest chastisement. Truly, to Us is their return; then upon Us shall rest their reckoning (Al-Ghashiya 21-26).

Based on the above, Muslims care only about promulgating the universal Message of Islam. In Islam there is no compulsion in religion. If people are convinced it is to their own benefit, if not, it is to their own loss.

2-    Was Hitler a Racist Killer or also Genius?

I have read “Mein Kamph” before and I knew perfectly well that there was no one common feature that would correlate the Koran with Hitler’s book.  This erroneous comparison however, forced me to read Hitler’s book again. Reading “Mein Kamph” this time made me understand more what Hitler was really like, and the true reasons behind the oppressive decisions he took during his reign. As a result, a title flashed in my mind, “Was Hitler a Racist killer or also Genius?”

Hitler’s dark obsession with the Jewish “Question” and its “Final Solution” will be long remembered for it had paralyzed men’s hearts with terror. His war against the world remained the most atrocious, the most brutal and the deadliest in history. The result of the war was an outburst of destruction that consumed the lives of millions and changed the world. Hitler left Germany and much of Europe in ruins. Over 60 million people died worldwide in the war, and tens of millions more lost their health and homes.

Why Hitler hated the Jews so much? Why did Hitler invest so much energy in his hatred to Jews? Was Hitler insane? Was he pushed by insanity to destruct and destroy, or he had reasons justifying his criminal act? Why did he savagely kill 6 million Jews in World War II? 

For the sake of historical analysis, it is useful to face up the events that made Hitler seduce a whole people into barbarism. One must admit that Hitler was not an ordinary man. He was about to change the direction of history and reshape the world. He was a man who set in motion a chain of events resulting in the Second World War and the eventual deaths of 60 million humans through that war and through deliberate extermination. Hitler as a soldier had left behind a tragedy of a nation, a regime undermined, and a party dispersed. As a man of opinion he left behind an ideological heritage that would remain alive to historians, a heritage including politics, sociology, science, art and war.

We must also not forget that The National Socialism that was mentioned by Hitler in his speeches, and in his book “Mein Kampf,” 13 years before he came to power, stood firmly against the principles of Karl Marx. Hitler tried mercilessly to encounter communism by setting up the dictatorship of the one party – the party that adopted power, violence, tyranny, and Machiavellism to achieve its goals.

 Hitler is then a phenomenal historic event, a personage attracting academic historians to study and analyze.

One could not evaluate the issue fairly until he had read the real reasons that pushed Hitler to commit such atrocities against the Jews and the world.

One of the important reasons that made Hitler hate the Jews was their relationship with communism which had found a fertile soil in Russia.

In reality the Jews were not so innocent in the Russian revolution. On the eve of the revolution, the Bolshevik party had about 23,000 members, of which 364 were Jews (2). According to the data furnished by the Soviet press, out of 556 important function aeries of the Bolshevik state (1918-1919) 457 were Jews.

The story of the sealed train crossing Europe with Lenin and his 159 followers to take control of the Russian revolution is well known. Out of the 159 followers, 23 were Russian, 3 Georgian, 4 Armenian, 1 German and 128 Jewish.

At about the same time, Trotsky, the Jew, arrived from the United States, followed by over 300 Jews from the east end of New York. Trotsky and his companions rose to the heads of Soviets, and later, cabinet ministries of a government ruling a tenth of the human race (Edward Ross in his Russian Bolshevik Revolution).

Six men led the Bolshevik revolt in Russia: Lenin, Trotsky, Zinoviev, Kamenev, Sverdlev, and Lunacharsky. Five were Jews, Trotsky’s real name was Lev Bronstein, Lenins was Hiam Goldman. Their plan was written by Karl Marx, son of a Jew Rabbi.

Frank Britton’s booklet “Behind communism” appeared during the early 1950s (3). In introducing the booklet to the reader, Gregory J. Krupey (4) stated, “The once blatant link between Jews and communism, a fact that was openly discussed in the mainstream media during the early years of the Bolshevik regime had become an official untruth…Britton himself refers to how academic historians refused to deal with the issue, even as most of them were aware of the facts. This is still true today, unfortunately, as such acclaimed Soviet “experts” as Richard Pipes and Robert Conquest write detailed histories of the Soviet Union and its rampant mass murder while skating deftly away from all discussion of the ethnic identity of those most responsible for the totalitarian regime and its genocide…Yet Mr. Btitton’s work excels because of its intellectual honesty. Seeing quite clearly the nature of the beast, he did not flinch from positively identifying it. Whatever his vocation, it’s quite clear that he was willing to jeopardize career in the cause of truth. Unlike cringing academics and cynical journalists concerned for paycheck, reputation, tenure, and the politically – correct gods of the day, Mr. Britton knew that the apparent enigma of communism was not due merely to bad people with a bad idea, and the resolve to enforce it. Undoubtedly communism was a bad idea, and it took lots of bad people to implement it, but the Marxist nightmare wasn’t merely a utopian misadventure. It was an intellectual and a political weapon devised and utilized by a specific ethnic group holding an historical view of itself as superior, as well as bearing an historical grievance with gentile society, specifically white Christian Europe. While communism’s promise of an egalitarian paradise and its threat to bring it about through revolutionary violence may have found many eager and willing listeners among the poor and working classes, they were only to be the instrument, the Golem, of the vengeful plans of this specific ethnic minority. By pointing this out, by showing it to be the central issue in history of communism, Mr. Britton proved that, while not all Jews are communists, and not all communists are Jews, communism itself is inherently, fundamentally a Jewish creation. In essence, the event we have been all conditioned to refer to as the “Russian Revolution” was, like Voltaire’s Holy Roman Empire, neither Russian nor a revolution. It was a Jewish coup d’etat against the Russian Empire, its Royal family, and the religion, culture, and society of the Russian peoples. And it resulted into a holocaust of truly earth –shattering proportions, inflicting a death toll of not a mere (questionable) six million, but of an estimated sixty million approximate deaths in the Soviet Union alone. As I have written elsewhere, that is a veritable Mt Everest of mass murder in comparison to Nazi molehill.”

In his booklet “Behind Communism” Britton stated bluntly, “Soon these hordes of returning Jews would exercise the power of life and death over 150 million Christian Russians. Soon every factory, every government bureau, every school district, and every army would function under the gimlet eye of a Jewish Commissar. Soon the blood of human beings would be oozing from under the doors of the communist execution chambers as tens of thousands of Christian men and women were butchered like cattle in a slaughter house. Soon five million landowners would be deliberately starved to death as part of a premeditated plan. Soon a move would be underway to exterminate the gentile leader class of the entire nation by murdering every Yahshuaian factory owner, and lawyer, and government leader, and army officer, and every other person who had been, or might be, a potential leader. Soon the standing population of the slave – labor camps would exceed 16 million. Soon every church and cathedral would be gutted, and every priest and preacher would become a criminal in his own community. Soon Russia would have a zombie – proletariat, docile, willing to work, easily controlled, incapable of revolt…When the Bolsheviks came to power, they systematically undertook to destroy every vestige of opposition by exterminating the upper class of Russian society. The fury of the red terror can be explained only as a manifestation of Jewish hatred against Yahshuaian civilization…Such was the romance of the Bolshevik revolution.”

Frank Britton gives many pages of documented terror, and then sums it up, “The total effect was much the same as it would be in any country. With its small, middle and upper class terminated, Russia’s peasant and worker population accepted Jewish Bolshevism without protest. The Russian masses deprived of its spokesmen and leaders were simply incapable of counter – revolution. That was what the red terror set out to accomplish.”

After World War II the following Jews ruled in Europe: Rakosi in Hungary, Jacob Berman in Poland, Anna Pauker in Romania, Rudophy Slansky in Czechoslovakia, and Kagonovich in Russia (through Stalin). Even non – Jews such as Tito of Yugoslavia were controlled by Jews. John Gunther in Behind the iron curtain writes of the Jew Mosa Pijade, “He is Tito’s mentor…whatever ideological structure Tito may have, he got his shrewd old man.”

In America the Jew Gerhart Eisler ran the communist party from 1935 to 1947. His right man hand was J. Peters whose real name was Goldberg.

In Germany the great reformer Martin Luther also attacked the Jews. translated from Biblishes Spruch U. Schatz – Kastlein by Karl Fliedner, in the first part Luther complains of the Jews, “squeezing from us our money and goods,” and of their, “lying, blaspheming, and cursing,” and then he admonishes, “We should not suffer it…lest we become partakers of their sins.”

Then he goes on, “I will give you my true council: first, avoid their synagogues and schools and warn people against them, and such should be done to the glory of Yahweh and his kingdom, that Yahweh may see that we are his children, and have not knowingly tolerated such lying, cursing and blaspheming of his son and his Christians…” On the Talmud: “The heathen philosophers write much more honorably not only about Yahweh’s government and future life, but also about temporal virtues. They write that man is by nature obligated to serve others, also keep his word to enemies, and be true and helpful to them especially in need, as taught by Cicero and his like. Yea, I maintain that in three fables of Aesop there is more wisdom to be found than in all the books of the Talmudists and rabbis…

Luther wrote on economic bondage to them: “Why, they hold us Yahshuaians in captivity in our own country; they let us work in the sweat of our noses, while they appropriate money and goods…live well and easy on goods for which we have worked, keep us and our goods in captivity through their cursed usury, mock us and spit on us, because we must labor and permit them to be noblemen at our expense; thus they are our lords and masters, we their servants with our own property, sweat and labor! And to thank us and reward us, they curse our Lord!”

Today, Luther’s writings on the great problems of his day have been almost eliminated from Lutheran books and seminaries. Nothing of his writings on the Jews is allowed to be taught in Lutheran seminaries (3).

In England, Goldwin Smith, Professor of Modern History at Oxford wrote in 19th Century October 1881, “The Jew alone regard his race as superior to humanity, and looks forward not to its ultimate union with other races, but to its triumph over them all, and to its final ascendancy under the leadership of a tribal Messiah.”

After the defeat of Germany in 1918, the winners imposed on Germany conditions that represented a national humiliation against which the German patriotic fiber could only revolt. As a result of the war, Germany was facing endless economic crises. The enormous costs of the war caused rampant inflation. Unemployment rose to over five million. Large parts of the population lived in fear of falling back into 19th-century poverty.

Before the rise of Hitler the Reichstag was dominated by Catholic and Marxist deputies. Hitler hated and detested immensely the principles of Karl Marx that were already established in Russia and were spreading like cancer in his defeated nation.  Before he came to power, Hitler promised to keep down Marxism. He believed that only the Nazis could be counted on to stop the spread of communism.

Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf” was full of hatred to the Jews. His bias against the Jews was overwhelming. He expressed unreasonable and extreme bigotry toward them. It seemed that he was obsessed with fanatic visions and blinded to reality by those very visions. However, many shared at least a portion of those visions.

Hitler blamed the Jews for all the catastrophic events that befell Germany before and after World War I. By the time he wrote Mein kampf he blamed the Jews for all the problems rife in Germany. The German worker was being ruined by Jewish capita and threatened by Jewish Bolshevism. Hitler considered the traitors of 1918 to be the German politicians responsible for the so called “stab in the back,” which prematurely ended World War One and established the German Democratic Republic. In Hitler’s mind and among many Germans, their army had not been defeated on the battlefield but had been undermined by political treachery at home. He even accused the Jews that they were behind the defeat of Germany in the war.

 In 1918 men from the navy led by young Jews started a revolution by demonstrating against the continuation of the war. While Germany was victorious in the war, The Jews killed the morale of the people by inciting them to oppose the ongoing war until Germany was unnecessarily defeated. Marxists and those misled by deceitful Jews rejoiced when receiving the news of Germany’s defeat. The Jews were even impudent when claimed that they paved the way to the cessation of war by convincing people to stand against its continuation.

Hitler discovered the extensive Jewish involvement with early communism. He believed that communism was the product of the Jewish mind, and was turned loose upon the world by the son of a rabbi, Karl Marx, in the hopes of destroying Christian civilization. He believed that the Jewish bankers financed the Russian revolution. He noticed that there was a great movement in Germany among the Jews which came sharply in confirmation of their national character, this was the Zionists. He stated in his book that while in Vienna he opened his eyes on two dangers threatening the German people; Marxism and Judaism. Hitler claimed that due to his deep studies in Judaism he was able to understand Marxism movement without a big difficulty. The Jews were the ones who put its principles and the ones who circulated them.

The deadly paralysis which hit the German nation and caused its defeat was due to the dreadful Marxism germ and the venom spit out by the Jews, the teachers of Marxism. The purpose was to spread anarchy and ruin in the world so that the Jews take advantage of such anarchy and impose their will everywhere. Every political error German politicians fell into beginning with the end of the 18th century and until World War I, was because the German rulers were influenced by the Jews, the servants of Marxism. When Germany based its economy on such incorrect principles, the Jews were first to rejoice, knowing for certain that twisted economy would assuredly take the country down to ruins, and here the Jews would build up a nation ruled by the proletariat, but actually controlled by the Jewish businessmen.

 Hitler stated in his book that he realized that the goals of the Social Democratic Party which was ruling Germany at the time were the same as those of the Jews as people and religion, and like those of Zionism as a national political movement. The Social Democratic party was a toy in the hand of the Jews. The press and the media of the nation were predominantly directed by Jews. From the publisher down, they were all Jews, whether they were representatives in the Reichsrat or trade–union secretaries, the heads of organizations or street agitators. Hitler therefore discovered the evil spirit preventing Germany from development.

Of the symptoms of deterioration which appeared in the empire before the war was the slipping of the German culture to low levels due to the bad influence of the Jews. With the beginning of the century it came suddenly upon art a drastic change separating it from its scholastic bases, and subdued it to the whims of a party fond of thought distortion. The Jewish and Bolshevik thinkers strived to degrade the intellectual German heritage and mocked what the nation sanctified. They mocked Sheller, Göte, Schopenhauer, Hegel and others. They deliberately destroyed the accomplishments of Fredrick the Great, and sneezed at the achievements of Bismarck. They wished to cut off every relationship between the past and the present, they made available to people cheap literature and bold art aiming at deteriorating the ethical manner of the nation.

The Bolsheviks and their masters the Jews realized the importance of religion in the solidarity of the German nation. They launched a concentrated attack on religion and its men under the pretense of free thinking. They translated into German foreign works that shouldn’t be put in the hand of common or cultured people. Their purpose was to exterminate the religious motive and ethical immunity protecting man from error and keeping him away from destructive ideas and loose currents.

Over the years Hitler discovered that any action taken against morals in the society was committed by the Jews. The Jewish octopus had expanded to dominate newspaper, art, literature and theatre. The Jews through these tools circulated Marxism and debauchery. Hitler had seen how they ran mad to collect money by adopting the meanest ways. How they cleverly invested in secret and public prostitution and white-slave traffic and made out of it a profitable trade. Debauchery rained the nation with the sons of adultery and distorted births. Since the Bolsheviks and the Jews decided to undermine the edifice of the German state, Hitler had seen depravity spreading to German youth; he had seen debauchery and dissipation common in cinemas, bars and public parks.

Therefore, the health of the people required drastic measures and the soundness of the German race was more deserving to observe rather than individual freedom which under its name the Jews and the Marxists defended dissipation and dissolution.

Hitler had seen how the press owned by the Jews fabricated public opinion. The Jews could easily create a false political trend thus deviating people from truth. In just few days the Jewish press could make from a trivial event a serious case shaking the whole society, and at the same time they could cast a shadow of forgetfulness over issues of importance to the nation so that people could easily forget them.

Judaism as represented by Marxism does not recognize the aristocratic principle. It replaces the advantage of power and capability with numerical superiority, and ignores the value of the individual, and the importance of racial and national nature, thus stripping off humanity from the elements of its survival and depriving it of the continuation of its civilization.

Hitler believed that capital is the fruit of labor. Its importance depends on the greatness of the nation as expressed in its power and independence. Directing capital to serve the liberty and the independence of the nation means serving its greatness and power. The nation should strive to keep capital serving it instead of dominating it. This could only be by keeping the national economy independent and alive and the social rights of workers secure. It is important to differentiate between global capital subject to competition and speculation, and capital linked to national economy. The sovereignty of the global economy over national economy would make economical independence impossible. The hardest fight should be directed against global capital controlled by the Jews.

Hitler thus believed that by defending himself against the Jews, he was acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator. He was fighting for the work of the Lord.

Hitler believed in the racial concepts of Lanz Von Liebenfels. Liebenfels published a periodical about the supposed superiority of Aryans, an ill-defined race which included Germans, and the inferiority of other races, especially Jews. Hitler held that the superior Aryan race, centered in Germany, would be the final victor and would rule the world. Only pure races compete for territory and power, and only the fittest survive. Only pure races that do not mix with inferior groups are capable of creating lasting civilizations. The Arian race was destined to rule and enslave inferior races like the Jews, and the Slavs living in Poland, Eastern Europe and Russia. But to win this struggle, Germany would have to be ruled by a dictator and would have to be racially aware. Racial awareness would come through a process of mobilizing the masses with propaganda that appealed to their feelings, not their reason and aroused their hatred for all other allegedly inferior races, especially Jews. Jews were racially inferior to the Aryan race and therefore must be exterminated. Hitler did not care if a Jew believed in God, observed Shabbat, or ever prayed. A Jew was a Jew by blood, and nothing could erase that.

Another of Hitler’s major ideas was the concept of Lebensraum (living space). He argued that Germany needed large amounts of territory and expelling or killing the local populations. Such measures naturally required wars, but not for political or economic objectives. Hitler’s wars would be fought to win vast stretches of land on which German settlers would raise large families.

The aim here is not at all to provoke sympathy for Hitler, but for the sake of honesty and historical analysis there is no denying that Hitler as a national leader was beloved by his people. He possessed a diabolical personal magnetism. One had to see the crowds, who acclaimed him, and the women who were attracted to him, and the young who in his presence went into ecstasy. This skilled manipulator of the masses had a special charisma that gathered people around him. He combined high organizational and manipulative talents that made him genially organize the Nazi party.

The organizing of the Nazi party into a mass movement was a stroke of genius. Hitler divided the party into two major political organizations, PO I dedicated to undermining and overthrowing the German democratic republic, and PO II designed to create a government in waiting, a highly organized within the republic that would someday replace it. PO II even had its own departments of agriculture, economy, interior, foreign affairs, propaganda, justice, along with race and culture.

Hitler then divided Germany into thirty four districts, with each one having a leader. The district itself was divided into circles, and each one had a circle leader. The circles were divided into local groups, and in the big cities the local groups were divided along streets and blocks.

For young people, the Hitler youth was formed. It was for boys aged 15 to 18, and was modeled after the popular Boy Scout programs. Younger boys aged 10 to 15 could join the organization. There was also an organization for girls and for women.

Also at this time, Hitler began to organize the SA, his Nazi storm troopers. The SA began as an organization of Nazi Street brawlers originally called the “monitor troop” that kept Nazi meetings from being broken up by Marxists and fought with them in the streets as well.

Realizing the German man’s fondness for uniforms, the SA adopted a brown – shirted outfit, with boots, swastika armband, badges and cap. Nazi uniforms along with the swastika symbol would become important tools in providing recognition and visibility, thus increasing public awareness of the party.

At this time, within the SA, a new highly disciplined guard unit was formed by Hitler that would be solely responsible to him and would serve as his personal body guard. It was called the SS. The SS adopted a black uniform, modeled after the Italian fascist party (5).

We would be wrong to forget that Hitler came to power in 1933 after a long struggle and by the most legitimate means. Over the years, the National Socialist party (Nazi party) under the leadership of Adolph Hitler gained more votes in every parliamentary election. The party promised to “restore honor” to the Germans, to renew political order and to bring back “work and bread.” At last the party won a majority in the parliamentary elections. The aging Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg had no choice but to allow Hitler, at age 43, to form the new government, making the end of the Weimar Republic, and the beginning of the Third Reich.

On January 30, Hitler was named Reich chancellor. In February his democratically elected government passed a law suspending civil rights and political freedoms. In March, the government was empowered to rule without parliament, to pass laws and govern by decree. Germany became a dictatorship ruled by Hitler and the Nazi party.

Under Hitler, the state, not the individual, was supreme. From the moment of birth one existed to serve the state and obey the dictates of the Führer. Those who disagreed were disposed of. Many agreed, bureaucrats, industrialists, even intellectual and literary figures including Gerhart Hauptman, world renowned dramatist, were coming out in open support of Hitler.

Many disagreed and left the country. A flood of the finest minds, including over 2000 writers, scientists, and people in the arts poured out of Germany and enriched other lands, mostly the United States. Among them – writer Thomas Mann, director Fritz Lang, actress Marlene Dietrich, architect Walter Gropius, musicians Otto klemperer, Kurt Weill, Richard Tauber, phsychologist Sigmund Freud, and Albert Einstein, who was visiting California when Hitler came to power and never returned back to Germany.

Violating the treaty of Versailles, which limited the German army to 100,000 men, Hitler embarked on a rearmament program of massive scale. His goal was to become once again, a global super power. Capable of conquering lost territory and others as well.

The first discriminatory laws against Jews came in 1933. These laws barred Jews from government employment and restricted their admission to universities. In subsequent years, the anti –Semitic laws became increasingly harsh, as Jews were deprived of citizenship, excluded from more and more jobs, forbidden to own cars, thrown out of public schools, and stripped of their property. These events culminated in the “Night of Broken Glass,” in 1938, when Nazi mobs killed dozens of Jews, smashed thousands of windows in Jewish neighborhoods, and set fire to almost all Jewish houses of worship throughout Germany. Following the “Night of the Broken Glass” the Nazis sent more than 30,000 Jews to concentration camps. Hundreds of thousands of others fled the country.

As his armies were rolling through Polish resistance, Hitler started the elimination of peoples he saw as inferior to Germans. Shortly after their 1939 conquest of Poland, the Germans began killing thousands of poles and driving thousands more out of their homes to make way for German settlers. The Nazis also herded Jewish poles into city ghettoes, killing thousands of them and condemning the rest to starvation. Within Germany, Hitler ordered a program to systematically kill handicapped Germans, and over 200,000 were eventually murdered.

Hitler invaded the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) because he believed that the Soviets, many of whom were of Slavic descent, were an inferior race controlled by Jews under the guise of socialism. The German authorities planned to kill all Jews in the territories of the USSR they occupied. In late July 1941, Hitler decided to extend the systematic killing of Jews to all of German occupied Europe. Jews of other countries and the racially inferior Slavs were included in the racial re-structuring of Europe. The aim was to destroy the Slavs, enslave the workers and make the land and natural resources available to the superior race. Large cities like Warsaw, Leningrad and Moscow were pulled down and made uninhabitable, while other Aryan nations in Northern and Western Europe were to be won over and made to accept German leadership. However, the Nazis found that German police and soldiers who did the killing of Jews were often traumatized by the experience. To make the slaughter faster and less stressful, the German built specially designed death camps, primarily in occupied Poland, to which Jews and Gypsies, Slavic people and many others, all of whom he considered inferior from all over Europe were transported. These camps contained large gas chambers where hundreds of prisoners at a time were quickly murdered by poison gas.

The main cause of the holocaust was the anti-Semitic bias so common in Europe. This racial and religious prejudice allowed the holocaust to occur. Bias against Jews, whether for religious or racial reasons, was already widespread. As late as the First World War, pogroms continued to occur, especially in Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania. In 1919, the followers of Simon Petlura, the Ukrainian nationalist leader slaughtered more than 60,000 Jews. The Nazi government was enormously successful in keeping their murderous actions a secret, often even from their victims.

After studying the history of the Jews in Europe and the attempts directed to annihilate them as a race by Hitler, I came to the conclusion that whatever reasons Hitler and other fascist extremists had against the Jews, they don’t justify by any means the criminal act he undertook against the Jews by killing more than 6 millions of them during World War II and before.

From the religious and humanitarian point of view, whatever reasons Hitler had, the Holocaust against the Jews is totally unjustified. Jews as people of a great religion have the right to be respected and live in peace like everybody else. Religious toleration is the highest evidence of culture in a people. Muslims believe that Judaism, Christianity and Islam are but three forms of one religion which in its original purity was the religion of Abraham. There are traditional and mythological connections between Islam and Judaism. Both go back to the core of belief – to the idea of One Omnipotent, universal God, Allah.

Muslims invented the concept of religious tolerance. The Koran is the only Holy Book with a verse that calls for shunning compulsion in religion. Allah ordered Muslims not to quarrel with “People of the Book” (Jews and Christians). Muslims believe in the revelation which came down to them and in that which came down to Jews and Christians. Muslims believe that Allah is one for all people and all religions.

The Koran teaches:

”Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error. Whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold that never breaks.”

In another verse the holy Koran says:

Dispute not with the People of the Book save in the fairer manner, except for those of them that do wrong; and say, ’We believe in what has been sent down to us, and what has been sent down to you; our God and your God is One, and to Him we have surrendered (Al-Ankabut, 46).

The Koran also emphasizes the sanctity of human life:

”Because of this (Cain killing Abel) did We (Allah) ordain on the children of Israel that if anyone slays human being – unless it be in punishment for murder or for spreading corruption on earth it shall be as though he had slain all mankind; whereas if anyone saves a life, it shall be as though he has saved the life of all mankind.” (Al-Maidah, 32).

Although the Koran criticized the Jews for fighting the Prophet and conspiring with the Arab pagans against him, for corrupting the Hebrew Bible, for killing their prophets and for not adhering to what was revealed to Moses, Islam as a religion is not anti-Semitic.

 Islam is similar to Judaism, in that both see themselves as both spiritual descendants of Abraham and followers of the same prophets. Islam encourages toleration and respect for Jews and Christians, as both are considered by Islam as “People of the Book”, meaning they share common scriptures and prophets. Even Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam did business with the Jewish tribes of his city and he ordered Muslims to share food with their Jewish neighbors.

The Koran says:

“Let there be no violence in religion”, and “Fight against the unbelievers until they cease persecuting you, but if they desist, then let there be no hostility.”

 These Koranic words were taken to heart when the Arab-Muslims occupied Spain in the medieval age and formed their state which they called Al-Andalus (Andalusia). The tolerance they showed to the Spaniards had no equal in the history of conquerors.

The first Muslims who made Spain their home never felt that the other monotheistic religions were mortal enemies. They considered the Jews and Christians as “People of the Book” and to have the same message as Muslims. According to Muslim opinion, the ideas which Judaism had begun and Christianity had developed further, had reached their perfection in Islam. Islam is the further development of Judaism and Christianity, the ultimate manifestation of the religion of the book. Instead of unity based on one religion, Muslims built a society where all religious faiths shared a common life.

Al-Andalus became a remarkable country for its age – a land of peaceful co-existence and harmony. The Christians and Jews were allowed to pursue their religions, subject to certain small taxes as laid down in the Koran – no one was forced to convert. The Jews and Christians were allowed to retain their possessions and their beliefs and religious practices, and to continue their way of life within the framework of the society despite the fact that both these communities denied the continuance of the prophetic tradition beyond their respective prophets, Moses and Jesus, on whom be peace. The Arabs had never compelled the Jews or Christians to renounce the Bible or the Gospel and to embrace the Koran. This allowed for a remarkable accommodation between all the faiths, producing a society which became progressive and evolving.

Side by side the Arabs lived with the Christian and Jews in peace. The Jews, who had been virtually eliminated from the peninsula in the seventh century by the Christians, grew once more in numbers and flourished. At the end of the eighth century, the whole of Andalusia was the most populous, cultured and industrious land of all Europe, and remained so for centuries.

The tolerance of the Muslims-nurtured by the spirit of Islam-turned Andalusia into the top cultural centre on European soil. In the ensuing centuries it became a bridge between the Islamic East and the Christian West, bringing all the accumulated knowledge of mankind up to that period into the emerging nations of Christendom, setting them off on the road to progress and advancement.

Arabic became the mark of culture for both Muslims and non-Muslims alike and the most unifying factor for all the peoples of the Iberian Peninsula. Christians and Jews entered the main stream of Muslim society and were eventually Arabized to a degree that they no longer were distinct from the Muslims.

Due to the open society in the Iberian Peninsula, the Jewish golden age in literature developed under Muslim rule, especially during the 10th and 12th centuries. During this period, when Jews in the remainder of Europe were not tolerated, in Andalusia, the Hebrew tongue developed its grammar and vocabulary on the model of the Arabic language. The uncommon openness of life in this medieval state gave a chance for a great number of Jews to become renowned literary men in both Arabic and Hebrew.

The Muslim world made a remarkable contribution to science, notably mathematics, and medicine. Baghdad in its Heyday and southern Spain built universities to which thousands flocked. Rulers surrounded themselves with scientists and artists. A spirit of freedom allowed Jews, Christians and Muslim to work side by side. The Jewish renaissance arose from the fusion of the Arab and Jewish intellectual worlds. Jews watched their Arab counterparts closely and learned to be astronomers, philosophers, scientists and poets. Jews became prominent advisors to Arab leaders. Jewish historians refer to that time period as “The Golden Age of Judaism.”

There was thus no pressure of Jews in Andalusia to retire into a ghetto. There were no laws and scarcely any customs that confined Jews to any place or occupation. When their gates were shut they were the ones who shut them.

In the remainder of Europe however, all life revolved around rigid Christianity. Truth within the church could only be conceived by faith alone, as opposed to reason. That is, until Thomas Aquinas in the 13th century reconciled faith and reason. In this, he was greatly influenced by Muslim philosophers like Averroes (Ibn Rushd) whose books had been translated into Latin in the 11th century after the fall of Toledo.

In the subsequent years, the classical legacy, long outlawed by the Church, was made available through the translation of Arabic books. Along with Arab learning, developed throughout the Islamic world, the classical tradition was reaccepted by Christendom, setting the West on the road to greatness (6).

Jews and their rabbis, gained prominence in the courts of Baghdad, Cairo, and Istanbul, performing the duty of palace physicians, finance officers, and even government ministers. As a minority, Jews exempt from Islamic law (Sharia), and the government allowed them a degree of self-rule by appointing Jewish leaders to implement Jewish law for their communities. Important synagogues dot the major cities of the Middle East, and relations between Muslims and Jews had been relatively calm for over a thousand years.

In the time of the reign of Theodoric, king of Ostrogoths, in Italy, however, the Catholic Church was not content with this harmony between the three religions in Spain. The Church felt bound to impose the official religion on all people living in Spain. In the religion of the official Church there was only intolerance and rejection of any religion other than the one it had formulated. By claiming that Allah had become man, and died for humanity so that everyone who believed this would go straight to heaven, it logically followed that there is no longer need for another prophet on earth. A man can do what he pleased and still go to heaven provided that he bowed before the cross and said he believed in Christ. The appearance of another prophet after Jesus like Muhammad was therefore very embarrassing for the official Church, especially when so many people accepted his guidance and followed him. Because of the Arab territorial expansion in Europe, and their denial of the central dogma of Christianity – Jesus as the son of Allah –  the church was bound to subvert Islam, and to eradicate the Muslims, in the same way that it had eliminated the Unitarian followers of Jesus before them.

After 600 years of continuous ruling in Spain the Arabs became weak and divided. Commencing with the Burgundian Crusades of 1017, the precursors of the more notorious crusades to the east, the Christians began to make significant inroads into the Iberian Peninsula. The taking of Barbastro in1064, caused the slaughter of thousands of Muslims. It was an invariable custom with the Christians, whenever they took a town by force of arms, to ravish the daughters in the presence of their fathers, and the women before the eyes of their husbands and families. But on the taking of Barbastros the excesses of this kind of rape committed by thorn passed all belief; the Muslims had never before experienced anything like it. The crimes committed by the Christians on this occasion were so overwhelming that there is no pen eloquent enough to describe them.

The Spanish inquisition began with the reign of Ferdinand the Catholic and Isabella. Following the crusades and the re-conquest of Spain, and the defeat of the Arabs who reined Spain for 800 years, Ferdinand and Isabella chose Catholicism to unite Spain. In 1478 they asked permission of the Pope to begin the Spanish inquisition to purify the people of Spain. They began by driving out Jews and Muslims.

In 1483 Tomas Torquemada became the inquisitor-general. He was responsible for establishing the rules of inquisitorial procedure and creating branches of the inquisition in various cities. He remained the leader of the Spanish inquisition for fifteen years and was responsible for the execution of thousands of Spaniards, Muslims and Jews.

The Spanish inquisition brought about a reign of terror throughout Europe which led to impoverishment, exile and death of thousands of Jews, and Muslims. The Spanish inquisition was unjust and evil because it was concerned in large part with the converters. These were Jews and Muslims who converted under duress and were suspected of secretly practicing the Jewish or Islamic faith. The Jews and Muslims were pushed to convert to Catholic faith. The Catholic faith was then endangered by pseudo convert from Judaism and Islam. Accused heretics were identified by the general population and brought before the tribunal. They were given a chance to confess the heresy against the Catholic Church and were also encouraged to indict other heretics. If they admitted their wrongs and turned in other aggressors against the church they were either released or sentenced to a prison penalty. If they would not admit their heresy or indict others the accused were publicly introduced in a large ceremony before they were publicly killed or sentenced to a life prison. Jews were singled out for persecution because of their identity as Jews.

The Spanish inquisition’s reign of terror was abolished by King Bonaparte in 1834, but it wasn’t until January of 1968 when the files of the office of the inquisition at the Vatican were closed.

To simply say that Catholics had sinned is to sidestep the most important aspect of these sins. What remains important about the inquisition and the forcible conversion of native people is the involvement of the church’s authority with these sins.

The end of the Arabs and Jews epoch in Spain was not the end of a Jewish life in Arab lands. Jews have lived in the Middle East since before the time of Jesus and up to the present day. Many of the lands they lived in were Arab. The Jews lived in Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Turkey, Yemen, and in each of these places they lived in peace with their neighbors. Such peaceful life continued unabated until the creation of the state of Israel on Arab land in 1948. This event helped sour relations between Arabs and Jews.

Strange enough, in the third millennium, and after 60 years from the end of World War Two, opinion polls suggested that Europeans regard Israel as the biggest threat to world peace. Incidents of anti-Semitism in the third millennium were detected in France, Germany, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Belgium, Austria, Finland, Poland, Romania, Canada, Ireland, Russia, Czech Republic, Moldova, Ukraine and Argentina, in addition to several countries in Asia and the Middle East. One may ask, is anti-Semitism really increasing in the world?

Jews were attacked recently at Auschwitz in France. The assailants weren’t Arabs, Germans, Poles or members of another group historically associated with anti-Semitism, but Frenchmen. In several other cases, cemeteries had been desecrated. Swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans were scrawled on tombstones. Synagogues and day schools had been firebombed. Snipers had shot buses carrying Jewish students. Rabbis had been attacked. Jews wearing skullcaps had been beaten in the streets. Attacks on Jews now account for over 80 percent of all bias-related offences committed in France each year.

In 2001, the largest neo-Nazi march since World War Two took place in Berlin.

A new survey of 1,001 people in Eastern Germany and 1,050 in the West showed anti-Semitism is on the rise in Germany, with more than a quarter of people surveyed saying they believe Jewish influence is too great and 17 percent saying they believe Hitler would be viewed as a great statesman if not for the holocaust, which killed 6 million Jews. In finding that contradicts popular perceptions, the increase in ant-Semitic feelings was greater in western Germany than in the former communist east.

Some 28 percent said Jewish influence was too great, while another 32 percent partially agreed. Overall, 53 percent of the respondents either agreed or partially agreed with the statement that “more than others, Jews cheat and use tricks in their work in order to get what they want.”

The findings came after the worst anti-Semitic attack in years, in which neo-Nazis firebombed a museum honoring the victims of the Nazi death march through Belower woods.

During the attack, neo Nazis painted the Nazi “SS” symbols and the Swastika on a memorial. They also set fire to the Death March Museum, destroying the main exhibition describing the Nazis’ forced march of concentration camp inmates deeper into Germany ahead of the advancing soviet army, in which some 800 prisoners died.

The area had not seen such a serious attack on a holocaust memorial site since 1992, when neo-Nazis burned the rebuilt prisoner barracks inside the Sachsenhausen concentration camp outside Berlin (7).

It is most strange to say that the mainstream Jewish organizations in Europe and the United States have expanded their mission from fighting the oppression of Jews by others to attempting to silence critics of human right records and those rejecting the brutal policy of Israel towards the Palestinians. These Jewish groups forgot that by labeling any critics on Israel’s brutal policy in the Middle East as anti-Semitic, they may indeed develop anti-Semitic views in response. The Jewish organizations went to the extent of claiming that the new wave of anti-Semitism is going through a process of Islamization, meaning that radical Islam is the main reason behind the rebirth of the new wave of anti-Semitism. Because Islam is a global religion and its adherents mounts to more than one billion and five hundred million Muslims, living in almost every part of the world, associating Islam with anti-Semitism has already taken the problem from being confined only to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to a global dimension thus fuelling more the rise of anti-Semitism around the world.

These false allegations publicized by the Jewish organizations would certainly not deceive public opinion. All the reasons forwarded by these organizations to explain the causes for the new outbreak of anti-Semitism were devoid of one single word pointing to the atrocities of the Israelis against the Palestinians. They didn’t even approach the fact that the mounting hostility against the Jews was due to Israel’s erroneous policy in the Middle East. They considered that civilian Palestinians (disarmed by international treaties and agreements) when defending themselves are the assailants and not the vanquished. They deliberately deviated from truth by spreading the false belief that those whose land is occupied and their leaders are humiliated, imprisoned, assailed and murdered are the transgressors. Those, whom their elderly, women, men and children are killed daily and their homes are demolished, are the ones showing enmity to Jews and are the ones to blame. They considered rightful and legitimate defense against tyranny as an act of terrorism.

The Jewish organizations didn’t even touch the fact that the subsequent Israeli governments take a share of the responsibility. The government of Ariel Sharon for example, deliberately provoked the Palestinians to initiate their second uprising in year 2000, in order to find an excuse to occupy the rest of the Palestinian land. This government engaged in political tyranny and torture, assassination and murder. They didn’t mention a word pointing that the new wave of anti-Semitism is also stirred up by those Jewish communities in Europe who ally themselves closely with Israel and Sharon’s government. They didn’t admit that the right –wing in Israel describes every criticism of Israel as a form of disloyalty and anti-Semitism.

What would these Jewish organizations take the world for? These deceitful, misleading and naïve accusations surely will not deceive the world. People of the world can know the truth when they see it. They see nothing but bloodshed, vanquish, persecution and oppression – a long lasting injustice that never ends. And who are the oppressed? Palestinian civilians disarmed by international agreements! And who are the oppressors? A nuclear heavily armed nation totally backed without restriction by the sole super power on earth, the United States of America!

All the blame for such wave of anti-Semitism was put on the Arabs and their religion!

Criticism of Israel or Zionism by the Arabs is not an act of anti-Semitism, it is rather hatred of tyranny. When Israel could have peace for the taking, it conducts another round of deliberate disposition making Palestine unlivable for the Palestinians and livable for Jews.  Its purpose is not defense or public order, but the extinction of a people. The Palestinians are being shot because Israel thinks all Palestinians should vanish or die, so Jewish youth can start generations on the rubble of their homes. They are to be forced into Jordan, to perish in a civil war. The Israelis believe that settlements in the Palestinian land represent the pursuit of aspirations fundamental to the Jewish people, and to oppose the settlements is anti-Semitism. But also the settlements strangle the Palestinian people, put them further under occupation and extinguish any hope of peace.

I read with sadness the false accusations and refuted them. I here surround these accusations, and explains the truth about them.

Accusation 1: This new wave of anti-Semitism is being manipulated by Arabs to achieve resurrecting the fear of Jewish world domination, and delegitimization of the State of Israel. The state of Israel is but a tiny spot surrounded by millions of Arabs and Turks.

Maybe the Arabs opposed in the beginning the establishment of Israel on Arab land. Maybe the Arabs hated the killing of the original Palestinian inhabitants by the Israelis and their expulsion outside Palestine to refugee camps. But can the Arabs now and Muslims altogether delegitimize the state of Israel and deny its existence? Who on earth would believe that? Israel had been established in 1948 by a United Nation resolution. Its official establishment as an independent nation was recognized by the whole world and no one could ever think of threatening its existence for fear of a worldwide opposition. Is Israel really a tiny spot surrounded by millions of Arabs in neighboring countries? Israel now is the sole nuclear power in the Middle East, and is possessing more than 200 nuclear heads capable of destroying the whole Arab world in seconds. The last Arab Summit even proposed the recognition of Israel’s existence on the condition that the occupied Arab territories after the 1967 war are restored. The Israelis however rejected such proposition.

The Arab world is the one that fears the implementation of the hidden Israeli agenda for expansion at the expense of the Arab territories. The Arabs view the horribly grotesque and monstrous acts that cause the Palestinians to suffer are but means of fulfilling the Israeli colonial objectives. The Arab world now is defending itself against the Israeli continuous expansion and sees that its own existence is threatened from the Israeli ogre.

Accusation 2: Radical Islam is the cause of such wave of anti-Semitism!

Again, Arabs are Semite. They are the direct descendants of Prophet Ishmael, the first son of the great Prophet Abraham, and the older brother of Prophet Isaac. From this view Arabs can never be anti-Smite. Their sacred Book, the Koran taught them to respect “People of the Book”, i.e. the Jews and the Christians. The word “Muslims” denotes no race, ethnicity or national religion. It only indicates the desire to submit to the will of Allah.

Islam is a religion practiced in almost every country on earth. It is the fastest growing religion in the world, already pre-dominant in over 40 countries that are now controlled by Muslims, it’s adherents around the world are numbered one billion and five hundred million. The Islamic world can become so easily united by appealing to masses of Muslims around the world that their religion is under attack in one or more countries. A movement can therefore quickly spread. Arabs and many Muslims around the world see Palestine as a repressed and struggling nation under the tyranny of the Israeli occupation. They oppose the swaggering, egotism and obstinacy exercised by the Israelis in the Palestinian land. According to the Israeli policy in the occupied land, the Palestinians should surrender to oppression, shut up their mouth and not dare to respond back, or seek help from the international community.

So naturally, many Muslims in the world feel a great sympathy for the Palestinian cause. The fact that the United States had been closely allied to Israel since its establishment in 1948 is taken as a slap in the face of the Islamic community.

With their great sense of pride in their respective countries, and with a deeper religious belief in Islam, Muslims shunned the brutal actions of the Israelis in the Palestinian land. This had enraged the extremists of the religion into committing terrorist actions against Israel and its supporter the United States. So again it’s a matter of implementing a just policy in the Middle East and not that Islam is behind the wave of anti-Semitism.

Accusation 3:  Islam’s mission is to bring Islam to the whole of mankind by force.

Are those entering Islam in the United States and Europe were compelled to revert by force, or they embraced Islam after complete conviction? In Islam there is no compulsion in religion. It doesn’t matter for Muslims if non-Muslims embrace Islam or not. Every soul in the Hereafter shall be pledged for its own deeds. All people will be accountable to Allah soon, and they will harvest the fruit of their deeds in this present life, whether good or bad.  Believing or not believing in the one true Allah is something between the servant and his Creator. Because Islam is the last Warner to mankind, Muslims were ordered to make Islam clear to the world by explaining its teachings and tenants, and that they did perfectly well. The Koran, the Sunnah (sayings and deeds of the Prophet) and Islamic jurisprudence are all there in books translated into all languages and can be found in libraries and in several Islamic sites.

Is it possible to believe that those highly intellectual people in America, and Europe, who are well protected from their governments and breathe human rights and enjoy respectable citizenship, had entered Islam by force? The answer would only be that they embraced Islam after deep thinking, long meditation, and adequate comparison between the different religions and in the end they reached the ultimate truth of Islam crystallized in the oneness of Allah. Allah is one and there is no god but Him. Allah leaves astray whoever He pleases, and He guides whoever He pleases. The Koran is the last reminder to mankind, so whoever pleases may remember it, and they will not remember unless Allah pleases, He is the Lord of piety, and the Lord of forgiveness.

Accusation 4: The Arabs view the US as the big devil and Israel as the little devil.

Is it strange that people oppressed in the Middle East call the United States the big devil and Israel the little devil?

The agony which the Palestinians suffer daily from Israel, the double standard policy the United States is adopting in favor of Israel, the unconditional support of the United States to Israel, make these shouts of disapproval not at all strange. As a matter of fact these desperate shouts are quite reasonable and perfectly understandable. Israel and its supporter the United States should consider the future consequences of their unjust and biased policy in the Middle East. The oppression Israel is exercising against the Palestinians had easily become a never-ending, vicious circle of violence and escalating retaliation. The Palestinians seek a Palestine of social justice and order, individual freedom and equality of citizenship. The pain inflicted on them by the Israelis made Palestine chaotic, and made the Palestinians feel losing control of their lives. The Palestinians will never stop fighting back unless some intervention is made to stop the Israeli aggression. These acts of barbarism and genocidal campaign against the Palestinians must stop. There must be a judicious balance between the two parties.

Many people around the world are critical of American policy for a variety of reasons. For example, American global companies can affect the economies and politics of many poorer countries. American policies expressed by military, trade agreements, loans, foreign aid, and media are directed towards what is best for America, not necessarily what is best for the people in the country being directly impacted by such policies.

 The Arabs disagree with the American foreign policy in the Middle East. They see America as acting arrogantly and unilaterally.

The Arabs hold America to a higher standard as the world’s super power. The President of the Unites States has explained that America hold to “nonnegotiable demands of human dignity”; the President also explained that this dignity is not just American, but universal because it is the gift of God to the whole mankind. However, the Arabs now see the tyranny exercised by the Israelis in the West Bank and the blind siding of the United States with Israel as aberrant misconduct, a betrayal of the high standards America holds herself to and usually uphold. The Arabs view America as a country having an obligation towards the world, which is to strengthen and advance human rights around the world. The Arabs had always been strong allies with the United States, and wish that America’s leadership for human dignity to be also considered in their countries. The abuses taking place by the Israelis in Palestine which are so far blessed and approved by America, are contrary to the ideas America is fighting for, the ideas of human rights, safety and security for all. Such abuses are seen by the Arab world as a glaring example of American injustice. The Arabs want to see America as generally fair and considerate and not unfair and discriminatory.

Accusation 5: Islam is engaged in violent conflicts around the world.

Is Islam really engaged in violent conflicts around the world? Muslims around the world are persecuted without impunity. They had become prey to tyrants all over the world. They have endured daily misery for years. They are harassed, by all means; militarily, laws, media, propaganda etc…Muslims were and still vanquished in Serbia, Kosovo, Bosnia, Hersek, Chechen, Albania, India, China, Philippine, Thailand, and in many other parts of the world. After September 11, Muslims were vanquished and mistreated in America, Afghanistan and Iraq. Muslims in the Western media are described as terrorists and extremists. This is the biggest misconception resulting from the constant stereotyping and bashing the media gives Islam.

When a gunman attacks a mosque in the name of Judaism, a Catholic guerilla sets off a bomb in an urban area, or Serbian Orthodox militiamen rape and kill innocent Muslim civilians, these acts are not used to stereotype the entire Christian or Jewish faith. Never are these acts attributed to the religion of the perpetrators. Yet how many times have we heard the words “Islamic, Muslim fundamentalists” linked with violence. One should go to the source of Islam and separate what the religion of Islam says from what is portrayed in the media. Islam literally means “Submission to Allah” and is derived from a root word meaning “Peace”.

Islam may seem exotic or even extreme in the modern world. This is because religion doesn’t dominate everyday life in the West, whereas Islam is considered a “way of life”.  Muslims do not separate between secular and sacred in their lives. Like Christians, Islam permits fighting in self-defense, in defense for religion, or on the part of those who have been expelled forcibly from their homes. It lays down however, strict rules of combat which include prohibitions against harming civilians and against destroying crops, trees and livestock.
