only too familiar to us from the final phase of the Weimar Republic, when it was infiltrated by the Nazis. In startlingly similar form, the chief propagandist of the NSDP, Joseph Goebbels, said, at the end of the 1920s: “We are entering the Reichstag, the arsenal of democracy, to arm ourselves with their own weapons. We are becoming Reichstag representatives in order to paralyze their basic convictions, and with their own support. If democracy is so stupid as to give us traveling passes and per diem allowances to do them this disservice, that is their affair.”
Thus, horrifying parallels between Islam and National Socialism become obvious. Both are totalitarian ideologies with a drive for absolute power. The world domination fantasies of the Nazis — “Today Germany belongs to us, tomorrow the world” — resemble Islam’s demands for comprehensive global power as formulated in the Koran:
Sura 2, verse 115: To Allah belong the East and the West; wherever you turn, there is the face of Allah. Verily, Allah is all-embracing, all-knowing.
Sura 8, verse 39: Fight against them until there is no persecution any longer and all of religion is Allah’s. However, if you cease, Allah will surely see what you do.
Sura 4 8, verse 28: It is He, Who has sent His ambassadors with guidance and the true religion, so that he causes them to conquer every other religion. And Allah suffices as witness.
A further commonality of the ideologies is a deep-seated anti-Semitism. Irrational hatred of Jews is a thread running through “Mein Kampf” as well as the Koran. The prophet Mohammed despised the Jews because they would not accept his new religion. He had at least 600 captured Jews in Medina beheaded. Mohammed gave his fury free rein in many verses:
Sura 2, verse 88: And they said: “Our hearts are without feeling.” But no! Allah has cursed them because of their unbelief. That is why they have little faith.
