"Hitler, Goebbels, Goering and the rest of the Nazis,
inadequate to a man, were both
pathological and pragmatic liars. They lied so convincingly and so hugely that
statesmen from other countries could not believe that what they were hearing was
a lie...One of Hitler's biggest lies was constantly to assure the world of peaceful
intentions while obviously planning war by building up massively strong armed forces."
[John Laffin, 'Hitler warned us.']
Saddam Hussein grew up in the shadow of a giant portrait that hung
on the wall of his father's house, a portrait of the face of a man his father adored
above every other political leader. It was the face of Adolph Hitler! Writing in
Inside Asia, Joseph Gunther said: "The greatest contemporary hero (in the
Arab) world is Hitler."
Even Anwar Sadat, a man deemed by many in the West to be a moderate Arab leader,
as a young man wrote the following words to the leader of the Third Reich:
"My dear Hitler,
I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart. Even if you appear to have been
defeated, in reality you are the victor. You succeeded in creating dissensions
between Churchill, the old man, and his allies, the Sons of Satan. Germany will
win because her existence is necessary to preserve the world balance. Germany
will be reborn in spite of the Western and Eastern powers. There will be no
peace unless Germany once again becomes what she was."
Anis Mansour, editor of the Egyptian paper October and a Sadat confidant who
accompanied the Egyptian leader to Jerusalem wrote: "The World is now aware
of the fact that Hitler was right,and that the cremation ovens were the
appropriate means of punishing [the Jews]."
Hitler's book, Mein Kampf, is still required reading in various Arab
capitals and universities,and is widely distributed by others.
Samuel Katz writes in The Hollow Peace: "The Arab attitude is pointedly and
incisively expressed in modern Arabic literature, which is chock-full of
unbridled hatred of Israel, of Zionism and of the Jewish people. The idea of the
destruction of Israel is expressed in hundreds of books published on the subject
of the 'dispute' itself, and anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist teaching has even
been incorporated in school text-books,
The only reason that the Arabs have not yet done to the Israeli Jews what Hitler
did to their forefathers in Europe is that they have thus far lacked the
military means and weapons of mass destruction which were at Hitler's disposal,
to do so.
Had there not been an Israeli Defense Force to defend the remnant of European
Jewry that immigrated to Israel, the Arabs would have gladly fulfilled Hitler's
dream a long time ago by finishing off
those of the Jews the Nazi megalomaniac had left alive.
That the Arabs have not done so to date has not been due to any reluctance on
but because, this time, there has been this difference: The Jews in Europe had
no army to
defend them. Thank God, the Jews in Israel have!
This deeply entrenched hatred of the Jews and love for Hitler and the Nazis
surfaced during the time of one of the first Palestinian leaders, the Grand
Mufti Haj Amin el Husseini, during the 1930's.
It is evident in what the Mufti said on Berlin radio while he was Hitler's guest
in Germany. His words prove that there was total agreement between the
Palestinian leader and this murderer of God's people: "Kill the Jews - kill them with your hands, kill them with your teeth -
this is well pleasing to Allah!"
No, the crux of the Middle East problem has never been as has generally been
Palestinian Arab problem. It has been and still is the Palestinian Jewish
problem. It was
this problem that had to be solved by the Arabs, even as has been well
cooperation with the Nazis. They have used the Palestinian Arabs as their front
and excuse to achieve their Hitler-like goal:The extinction of a sovereign Jewish nation in their Muslim midst!
Maybe it is because many Israelis have themselves swallowed the lie that they
are unable to formulate a convincing line of defense. As Joan Peters writes so
perceptively in her wonderful book From Time Immemorial: "Goebbels, Nazi
exponent of Hitler's "Big Lie," averred that if a lie were repeated
often enough and long enough, it would come to be perceived as truth. What he
did not add was that the victim of the lie may also grow to believe it."
"Many young Israeli "Palestinian" Jews react with anxiety,
empathy, and concern about their alleged culpability, in response to widespread
perceptions about the Israeli "occupation" of the West Bank, and the
myth of the "three-or-four million Arab Palestinians excluded from their
homeland inhabited by them since time immemorial." For so long the
propaganda has reiterated that "Jews displaced Arab natives" in
"Palestine," without even any factual framework for evaluating sick
allegations, that many Jews feel they must bear that guilt."
When interviewed recently by a woman for a Dutch programme I was asked, after I
had related it is true that the Israelis are sometimes guilty of using excessive
force. My answer was, that though the Allied forces bombed whole cities in
Germany as a response to Nazi violence and aggression, I had never heard this
kind of criticism about them using excessive force by the Allies.
Right or wrong people did not
criticize the West or Allied armies for using too much
force to free Europe from the scourge of Nazi-dom.Why, then, does Israel
subject herself again and again to this worldly wise criticism by nations who,
when it came to the defense of their own best interest used far more force and
Israel has ever allowed herself to use against those who, like Hitler, threaten
her with extinction through gas and other weapons of mass destruction that will
soon be in their hands!
Has Israel bombed and obliterated whole cities as the Allied forces did to
Dresden, Darmstadt,Berlin and others? Or has Israel done as the U.S. did to
bring Japan to her knees by - flattening Hiroshima and Nagasaki thus killing (as
a Christian Western nation) 250,000 Japanese civilians!
Has Israel ever done such a thing to rid herself of the enemies that wish and
dream to one day do to them as the Nazis did? And yet it is Israel, who does not
thus defend herself as the West has done, is blamed, scolded and censured by the
governments of these very same Western nations!
It is truly amazing how hypocritical nations can be when it comes to Israel.
There is a word for this double standard: Anti-Semitism.
For those in and outside Israel who would still scorn the accuracy of these
related facts it may be good to end this article with a quote from Dr. Yahya al-Rakhaw,
an Egyptian in the issue of Al-Ahrar the organ of the Liberal Party! (July 19,
He writes:"When the State of Israel was established and won the good-will of the
world and was recognised by many in both East and West, one of the reasons for
this recognition was the desire of the people in the East and West to get rid of
as many as possible of the representatives of that human error known as
"the Jews." Behind this motive there was an additional, secret
purpose; to concentrate them in one place, so that it would be easier to strike
them at the right moment.
There can be no doubt that such hopes occupy the thoughts of politicians more
than Hitler but at the same time more cowardly than he was.
And for us, we must remember, among both bombardments and negotiations, both
speeches and land mines, that we are all - once again - face to face with the
Jewish problem, not just the Zionist problem; and we must reassess all those
studies which made a distinction between "the Jew" and "the
Israeli"... and we must redefine the meaning of the word "Jew" so
that we do not imagine that we are speaking of a divinely revealed religion, or
a minority persecuted by mankind. Every word has an origin, a development and a
history, and it seems that the word "Jew" today has changed its
content and meaning.
We thus find ourselves face to face with the essence of a problem which has
recently donned the gown of religion and concentrated itself on a piece of land.
In this confrontation we cannot see who was the wisest of those who confronted this
problem... and who, out of compassion for humanity, tried to exterminate every
Jew, but despaired of curing this cancerous growth on the body of mankind. And
now they virtually confirm the accuracy of his intuition."
May Israel be wiser in relation to this death wish of her neighbours, than the
Jews in Europe were.
They belittled the writings and speeches of Hitler and the Nazis and they were
massacred as a result.
May it not happen again!
