How the Views of Hitler were Similar to Islam?

on Friday, August 30, 2013

“No more Monsieur, no more Mister, Allah’s in Heaven and Hitler’s on earth.” Was a famous slogan in the Arab world at the time of Germany defeating France! Most of the Arab countries were colonies of Britain and other western countries, and having the common enemy was the only reason that Muslims appreciated Hitler and Germany at that time. Also Jews were also the common enemy because both Arabs and Hitler hated Jews.

Very recently the ex-president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadi Nijad said that the so-called Genocide was a drama and nothing like a mass killing happened, and if happened then the scale was much smaller than what was portrayed. Similarly the Muslim Brotherhood, since its inception, had good relations with Hitler and its administration and wanted to have collaboration with each other. It is said that the present Al-Qaeda has roots inside Muslim Brotherhood and Osama Bin Laden was a member of Muslim Brotherhood and later founded Al-Qaeda. But saying that they have similarities in principles or faith is very much incorrect and almost impossible.

Nazism was a political ideology but Islam is a Religion or a Deen (code of Life). Quran is a much more comprehensive book than Mein Kampf. In fact, Quran is the best and most relevant book of today’s world; it covers everything from the birth of a baby to the revolution of sun and earth. Yes, may be the terrorist groups like Al-Qaida and Taliban have similar ideologies with Hitler, but that doesn’t mean Islam has any major thing in common with Hitler. Hitler was a warrior who cruelly killed his enemies and had not shown mercy towards women, children, elderly people and the prisoners. The teachings of Islam are far away from such barbarism. Islam doesn’t allow Muslims to even chase those who left the battlefield to save their lives.

According to a new book written by an American scholar, Islamic fundamentalism and extremism has roots back in history, when Germany used to do radio propaganda calling Muslims to fight against the Jews and the western powers including Britain. They quote Hitler saying and addressing Muslims, especially the Arabs, “Your only hope for rescue is the destruction of the Jews before they destroy you!” They claim that this was responsible for wooing Muslims against the Jews and the western powers. May be it must be one of the reasons but we should not forget the fact that Israel itself has very poor history of human rights during the past five-six decades. The US and Britain has caused much damages to the Muslim world which is still continuous till today. But that doesn’t mean we should support extremist and terrorism, they are as wrong as the Zionists, and the suicide bombings are as bad as the drone attacks.

Hitler only a few times said that he liked Islam for its warrior morality, and he respected Islam and Prophet Muhammad PBUH. His views were not similar to that of Islam; Islam has nothing to do with Hitler. But if he was impressed by some of the teachings of Islam then this was his own act. Because Islam is the religion of love and peace and Hitter was a sign of hate and barbarism.
