Who Else Believes In Reincarnation???

I mean, really, isn't this how the National Socialist Party got rolling?

"Homosexuals deserve to be executed or tortured and possibly both, an Iranian leader told British MPs during a private meeting at a peace conference, The Times has learnt. Mohsen Yahyavi is the highest-ranked politician to admit that Iran believes in the death penalty for homosexuality after a spate of reports that gay youths were being hanged."

No, but wait, here is the best part...

"When the Britons raised the hangings of Asqari and Marhouni, the leader of the Iranian delegation, Mr Yahyavi, a member of his parliament’s energy committee, was unflinching. He “explained that according to Islam gays and lesbianism were not permitted”, the record states. “He said that if homosexual activity is in private there is no problem, but those in overt activity should be executed [he initially said tortured but changed it to executed]. He argued that homosexuality is against human nature and that humans are here to reproduce. Homosexuals do not reproduce.”

Well, how unenlightened and uncosmopolitan of them to torture gay people. What a Freudian Slip of the truth? The bigger question is where are the Dems and the Code Stinko idiots on this one? I thought it was sssoooo not OK to torture people. I mean, we at least waterboard people to find out information about terrorists. These ass-pirates do it just for the sheer fun of it.

I am guessing that there will be no syndication deal for "Queer Eye for the Islamic Guy" on Iranian State TV.

According to Wikipedia; "Nazi ideology stressed the racial purity of the German people and persecuted those it perceived either as enemies or Lebensunwertes Leben, that is "life unworthy of life". (This included Jews, and homosexuals, along with Jehovah's Witnesses, the mentally and/or physically disabled, socialists, and communists."

Boy, that sounds like something I heard recently;

“Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury,” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Hmmmm...... Wonder what he meant by that???

Nazi ideology drew a fair lot of it's concepts from the Arabist that had been so popular in Europe since Napoleon invaded Egypt.

There really is nearly zero separation between modern Islamism and old school Nazism other than a different religion as dressing.

The actual functional roots are deep between the two. Check out the Mufti of Jerusalem in the '30s and his visits to Hitler's Germany. Also the Palestine Waffen SS division raised for the Nazis by the Mufti.

That division became the Arab Legion at the end of WW2 and was the force the Mufti rallied his hard core faithful around in their bid to take Jerusalem by force from the newly created state of Israel.

The Baath party was created on the framework provided by the Nazi party and later fleshed out by close association with the Soviets with plenty "revolutionary" rhetoric and methodology.

If you do any research on the foundations of the Muslim Brotherhood (one of the primary parent organizations for resurgent Islamism), you'll find much of the "philosophies of the Germans" which were all the rage among mid eastern elites in the late '20s and 30's. Pomoism, and various incarnations of radical communism and later the open race hatred of the Nazis. All played their part in creating the mind set and motivation of those that have formed the political wings of our current enemy.

The race hatred of the Nazis was what most attracted the Arab/Muslim to Nazism. And it is why you still tend to find Nazi appologists within the Arab/Muslim world. After all, killing Jews, how could that be a crime in their mind?

Transatlantic Intelligencer

Excerpted from the end of the article:
The German political scientist Matthias Küntzel has indeed found Banna and his organization to be at the very origins of the notion of "belligerent jihad". In his article “Islamic Anti-Semitism and its Nazi Roots”, Küntzel points in particular to a 1938 essay by Banna entitled "The industry of Death”, in which Banna writes, “To a nation that perfects the industry of death and which knows how to die nobly, God gives proud life in this world and eternal grace in the life to come.”

“The concept of belligerent jihad was welcome with enthusiasm by the ‘Troops of God’ as the Brotherhood referred to itself,” Küntzel explains, “Whenever their battalions marched down the boulevards of Cairo in semi-fascist formation, they sang: ‘We are not afraid of death, we desire it... Let us die in redemption for Muslims.’” This hardly sounds like “not legitimizing” violence. Moreover, one can have doubts about Deborah Sontag’s or her editor’s choice of the charming little participle “dotted” – as in “dotted with violence” – to discuss the Muslim Brotherhood’s history.

For more about the history of the Muslim Brotherhood and, in particular, the numerous connections of the Brotherhood with Nazi Germany, I cannot do better than heartily to recommend the work of Matthias Küntzel: for German readers, his recent book Djihad und Judenhass or, for instance, his new article “Von Zeesen bis Beirut” in the Berlin weekly Jungle World; and for all, his website, where numerous articles are available in German, English and French.
