Islam: Uber-Nazism Reincarnated
19 August 2014
Eighty years ago today was one of many black days in German history. As the Wikipedia article German referendum, 1934 explains:
Isn't that wonderful?! On this day in history, the German people, en masse, gave their overwhelming support to Hitler's leadership and "activities" — that is, Jew-hatred and the Jewish genocide. If only such horrendous evil would remain on the pages of history and not be reborn to curse our world yet another time!
A referendum on merging the posts of Chancellor and President was held in Germany on 19 August 1934, after the death of President Paul von Hindenburg seventeen days earlier. The German leadership sought to gain approval for Adolf Hitler's assumption of supreme leadership. The overwhelmingly positive result of this referendum allowed Hitler to claim public support for his activities as the Führer and de facto Head of State of Germany. In fact, he had assumed these offices and powers immediately upon von Hindenburg's death and used the referendum to legitimate this move, taking the title Führer und Reichskanzler (Führer and Chancellor).
Alas! The Nazis are on the rise once again! And this time it's not only in Europe. In the United States, Canada, Australia, and many other countries around the world, Jews are being slandered, boycotted, attacked and even murdered, in the biggest display of Nazism the world has seen since the end of World War II.
Of course, few actually call it Nazism these days. That's too crude for modern tastes. Instead, most Muslims call it Islam. Non-Muslims might call it "Palestinianism," or some other innocuous-sounding term. In an article from November 2011 — The Palestinization of UNESCO — Bat Ye'or wrote:
boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS). Toward this goal it encourages an international campaign of incitement to hatred by financing anti-Israel NGOs and lobbies. Europe claims that Jewish existence in its ancestral homeland, Judea and Samaria, is an "occupation" — a colonization. In this way, Israel has become a state that is occupying its own historical homeland. In Orwellian language propagandists speak of "the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land" that is called Judea, and not of the ethnic and religious cleansing of Jews from their homeland through wars, expulsions, dispossession and the dehumanizing apartheid rule of dhimmitude. Euro-jihadists invoke "Palestinian resistance" rather than the reality of their terrorism that has spread throughout the planet. The EU has used every stratagem to force Israel to self-destruct in the name of Palestine. That destruction would lead to an era of "justice and peace" in the world in the same way the charnel houses of Auschwitz were meant to purify humanity from Jews.
What does Palestinization mean? Firstly, it means creating a people as a substitute for Israel, which takes over its history and therefore its legitimacy. From Palestinization (like the Nazification of Europe decades before) comes the delegitimization of Israel, an intruder state in the region and in history, even in humanity. The Palestinization of history denies Israel's identity, culture, historic and human rights within its homeland, including Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem. For the OIC this process is part and parcel of Islamic theology, which regards the Bible as simply a falsified version of the Koran. According to Islam, biblical history is Islamic history, and the biblical characters we see represented in churches are all Muslim prophets who have virtually no connection with the facts reported in the Bible....
Within this context, the Kairos Palestine declaration of 2010 brands Israel with terms like occupier of Arab lands, colonizer, promoter of apartheid; while conversely Palestinians are innocent victims resisting the occupation and aspiring only to security, justice and peace. The Kairos declaration, hardly surprisingly, condemns all Christian theology that is based upon the Bible or on biblical faith or history that would legitimize Israel. Understand if you can; what would remain of Christian theology, faith or history if you get rid of Israel and the Bible? Could Christian Palestinianism be the camouflage of Nazism, which had planned to de-Judaize Christianity? The document ends with a call to people, businesses and countries to take part in the BDS campaign against Israel.
Just like in Germany, things are once again starting on a small scale. But if you have read your history, you will clearly see that many of the headlines below are very similar to what was happening during the 1930s. The following articles were written in just the past month or two. In fact, as I was writing this article, there were six new ones to add to this list of flagrant Jew-hatred. I could have included a LOT more, but it was getting quite long already!
Like it was then, so it is today. As the above headlines clearly demonstrate, the stage is being set for the next Jewish holocaust. The Nazis and World War II were just a dress rehearsal for the real end-times trama-drama which is rapidly approaching its fulfillment. But this time the persecution and slaughter will be world-wide, and not just centered in Europe. This time the Jew-haters won't be marching under the red flag of the Nazis, but under the black flag of the jihadists. This time the Jew-haters won't be pledging allegiance to Hitler and Nazism, but pledging allegiance to Muhammad, the Mahdi and Islam.
Under the Nazis in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s, the citizens of that continent had a choice. They could either remain silent in the face of evil, or they could speak out against it. They could non-violently resist evil and refuse to cooperate with it, or they could just go with the flow and let themselves be carried away with it. They could stand up for the Jews and try to save them, or they could sit down and try to save their own lives. History records the tragic reality of many "Christians" remaining silent, cooperating with evil, and trying to save their own lives.
Christendom will soon have another opportunity to demonstrate what is truly in their hearts. Will those who consider themselves Christians stand up for the Jews against the Jew-haters, even though they might suffer for taking such a stand, and might even lose their lives for it? Will fear and self-love win out, as it did during World War II? Or will Christians actually FOLLOW Yeshua (Isa, Jesus), the Crucified One, and lay down their lives for the Jewish people, even as the Master did?
Seventy to eighty years ago, "Christians" had their opportunity to show the world what Yeshua is like, and they, to a large extent, totally blew it. It's easy to look back and criticize and judge them for their failure. The question is, will we learn from their mistakes and NOT repeat them? It's so easy to say "never again" about the Holocaust, but it WILL happen again — it already IS starting to happen again!
The Nazi spirit is on the rise once more. And it's not just a Nazi spirit, but the spirit of Satan — the ultimate Jew-hater — himself. In our day it looks like an über-Nazism reincarnated in a revived, militant Islam. Muslim Jew-hatred is deep-seated, long-standing, and firmly established in the Qur'an and the Hadith. Its human roots are MUCH older than Muhammad, going all the way back to the time of Abraham. This is not the place to go into all of the details, so for more information see chapter seven — The Muslims' Worst Enemies: The Koran on the Jews — in Robert Spencer's book The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran. Or, for an online resource, see Why Muslims Hate Jews to the Bones?
Righteous Among the Nations. Not only do the Jews have a list of who these heroes were, but I believe that Yeshua has His own, complete list of those who risked, and even lost, their lives for the sake of "the least of these, My brethren."
Will our names be added to that list in the coming years? Will we love not our lives unto death? As Yeshua explained, will we try to save our life in this world and thereby lose it for eternity, or will we lose our life for Yeshua and thus save it for eternity? Will we be "goats," going into everlasting punishment, or "sheep," going into eternal life? How we treat the Jews may very well be the deciding factor!
If we have genuine faith in Yeshua, if we truly believe what the New Testament teaches, if we are following Yeshua in deed, and not just in talk, then there is no reason not to stand up and side with the Jews, even if the Muslims kill us. They will only be sending us straight to Heaven to be with Yeshua. "For to me, living means living for Messiah, and dying is even better.... I desire to depart and be with Yeshua, which is better by far..." (Philippians 1:21,23b)
Followers of Yeshua — Bride of Messiah — DO NOT wimp out! We are living on this earth for such a time as this! The rise of über-Nazi Islam is our golden opportunity to demonstrate our love for the Jewish people, the Jewish Messiah, and the God of Israel. The example of Esther in the Old Testament shows us the way. Mordecai, Esther's relative and guardian, clearly laid it out for her:
"If you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you will perish. And who knows but that you have come to this place for such a time as this?"P.S. — If you have the stomach for it, you can see my follow-up article, Islam: Uber-Nazism in Photos.
Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: I will stand up for the Jewish people, "even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish." (Esther 4:14,15,16d)
