[Hilter leaving Linz's main museum April 8 1938]
"Hitler usually concluded this historical speculation by remarking: 'You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?'" [Albert Speer, Inside the Third Reich. New York: Macmillan, 1970, p. 96.]
Hitler openly admired Islam. And why not? The two creeds are quite similar. Like Nazism, Islam in-toto detests Christians and Jews. Like Nazism Islam wants its devotees to mindlessly support the cult. Like Nazism Islam demands the merger of church and state. Like Nazism Islam exalts and venerates a 'great man' – Muhammad in place of Hitler. Like Nazism Islam practices polytheism, celestial worship and imposes pagan rituals on its cult members. Islam demands a Hajj or pilgrimage to Mecca, the home-city of its founder, something the Nazis desired. Like Nazism Islam has a centralized tax extorted from the masses to supposedly pay for 'welfare', when the money is also spent on arms, wars, jihad, and the good living of its cult's leaders. Like Nazism Islam is a Manichean poli-cracy one dedicated to world domination.
One objective of Hitler's madness was to create a 'Mecca' within Europe. He wanted the knaves and vassals of Nazidom to prostrate themselves in front of Nazi colossi submerging their individual self-consciousness into the greater Nazi communal cult. The rendering of humans into disarmed compliant children is an objective desired by every cult, including Islam. The Nazis desired to set up 5 key Germanic centers of pilgrimage called the Fuhrer Cities. Each would serve a specific purpose and attract the slaves of Nazism who would pay servile homage to the Hitler cult, much as Moslems do today when journeying to Mecca and engaging in puerile rites to satiate the Muhammadan cult:
“...five "Führer Cities" of the Third Reich. Along with Berlin, the Reich's capital; Munich, the capital of the Nazi movement; Hamburg, "The Gateway to the World"; and Nuremburg, "The City of Party Congresses," Linz was scheduled for refurbishment as the "City of the Führer's Youth" -- completing a series of ideological centers upon which the Nazi regime was based.”
Slaves of the Nazi cult would have been called upon to journey to most of these centers in pilgrimmage, in particular to Linz Hitler's birth place and the 'center or world art', and Berlin, which would have been renamed 'Germania'. Pilgrimmage solidifies of course the power of the state, the base slavery of the masses, and the demi-god status of the cult's leader. It also greatly enriches the cult and the city of pilgrimage, a key factor in the development of Mecca as Muhammadanism's locus of worship.
Hitler was particularly fond of Muhammandanism and the totalitarian control it had over every aspect of the Moslem's existence. Muhammad's 'total system' only proves of course that Islam is civilized peace and harmonious inter-faith co-existence. Puerility is the key to maintaining a good cult. The more inane and dumber the ritual practices the better. Witness the adolescent nature of the Moslem Hajj, its rituals and its crass political program as detailed by a Moslem historian:
"The rites and ceremonies connected with the Hajj and Umrah are exceedingly puerile... The idolatrous customs of the ancient Arabs, though sanctified by the teaching of the Qur'an and the example of' Muhammad... Its sanction by Muhammad is one of the darkest plots on his religion, and shows at the same time how far the politician of Madina differed from the preacher of Makkah. How his apologists fail to see the inconsistency of his conduct and teaching here, not only with the dignity of a prophet of God, but with the character of an honest man, is beyond our comprehension.....the implicit obedience of his followers secured its perpetuation. The fiery Omar, kissing the stone, said, "Verily I know that thou art a stone; thou dost no good or harm in the world, and if it was not that 1 saw the prophet kiss thee, I would not kiss thee." [Mishqat ul Masabih book 11. chapter 4, part 3]
Whatever Muhammad said or did was the example of all Moslems, for all eternity, to follow. Whatever the Fuehrer said or did, was the example for all Germans and Nazi slaves to emulate and follow, forever. The Hajj to Mecca is more about honoring the 'great man' Muhammad and confirming that his home-town of Mecca is the center of the world, than anything else. The Al-Lah, the i-lah, the El-Lah, or moon deity of northern Arabia is just a thin disguise, a panache of color and costume to the effigy of Muhammad himself. If the Meccans had not honored the moon, and venerated a tree named 'the thing' instead, Moslems today would be bowing and scraping and moaning out their ritualized prayers to the tree-thing, instead of the moon-thing. Either would do for Muhammad. Inanimate or animate, the object is just the cover the real purpose of Islam – submit to Muhammad.
“Another view which originated in the field of Semitic studies under the influence of E. B. Tylor and gained recognition was that of animism. According to this theory, in the most primitive phases of the development of religion there were no gods bearing distinct personalities, but only spirits, that is, collective and anonymous beings. The jinn are interpreted as representing this primitive phase, and the origin of a belief in them is often attributed to the Bedouin, whereas the settled people are credited with the creation of individual gods. [Henninger in Swartz, 'Studies on Islam', 1981 p. 3]
The Allah is certainly the most impersonal and unknowable of 'gods'. The Koran never reveals what the Allah thing is. This is obviously because the illiterate Bedouin and Arab pagan would already know that the Allah deity is the moon idol. No explanation needed. All Arab tribes had some form of moon worship and accorded this deity the appellation of simply ilah, or the 'one' [not Obama but Allah]. Moon veneration was common for pastoral, poor tribes living on the edge of subsistence:
“According to D. Nielsen, the starting point of the religion of the Semitic nomads was marked by the astral triad, Sun-Moon-Venus, the moon being more important for the nomads and the sun more important for the settled tribes.” [ibid]
Like Islam, Nazism was also pagan and Hitlerite theology incoherently cited Norse gods and a defective concept of Aryanism as both proof and animation for the dialectical rise of Germanic greatness. Wodin and Thor approved. Hitler's mistake was not choosing one god such as Odin and conflating himself with that idol. I for one believe that Hitler had some knowledge of the Koran and Islamic development. How he missed this most important link in Muhammad's political program is quite astonishing. Hitler certainly assumed he was semi-divine, forced and directed by higher powers to embark on his 'holy work', namely the reconstruction of mythical German greatness and by extension world domination by the divinely chosen Aryans. His program was little different than that of Muhammad of course, except that Muhammad yoked monotheism or some bastardized version of it, to himself. That was the clever trick performed by Muhammad, and left out by Hitler. That is why Nazism perished and Muhammadanism still flourishes. It will always be so, until Moslems lift their heads, clear their brains and start to analyze their own cult for what it is.
