Historian Details Nazi Outreach in Arab World
inn ^ | 5/23/10 | Maayana Miskin

Posted on 05/23/2010 10:11:10 AM PDT by Nachum

During World War II Nazi Germany tried to rally support in the Arab world, often trying to find common ground in anti-Semitism. The extent of the Nazi propaganda in Arabic has been revealed in a book titled Nazi Propaganda for the Arab World.

Historian Jeffrey Herf based his book on wartime broadcasts in Arabic that were transcribed by the American embassy in Cairo. Thousands of transmissions were sent from 1939 to 1945.

Islam, Fascism, Communism, Liberalism — it’s all connected. In its simplest form it is a worldview arrayed against God.

Herf is a good historian. He wrote a book called “War by Other Means” about Soviet propaganda and the “nuclear freeze” movement.

You were saying ...

Yeah, in Islam, they say, "We kill for God." In Fascism, they say, "The state is God." In Communism they say, "There is no God." In Liberalism, they say, "Who cares if there's a God!" ... LOL ...

Of course, none of them are following the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Only True God, and Jesus as the Messiah of Israel ...

In normal circumstances that would be true. But, that goes to show you how blinding their hatred is for the Jews, that they would not pay attention to that. It's so "blinding" of a hatred for the Jews -- that this is what a lot of people say, "shows" that this is a "demonic hatred" (inspired by Satan) and not something that people would normally have ...

Yet, there they were... and it pays to keep in mind that the Muslims have been here a whole lot longer than Nazis, having existed centuries before Nazis ever even conceived their plans.

And now..., the Nazis are no more -- while the Muslims are taking over countries ... and intend to do the same thing with America...

I don't know "who" shouldn't have trusted "whom", there ... :-)

Last month in Daniel Pipes

Bush had to recess-appoint Pipes to U.S. Peace Council, so abhorrent is the latter to Democrats (eternal allies of America's enemies).

In cities all over the world you will find Arab stores which sell a variety of sundry items: work clothes, shoes,and much more. During WWII the Nazi used these stores for espionage purposes and drop off points. More recently Arafat used them to collect money for the PA and, in fact, collected protection money from the store owners.

The MO of these Arab owners was to marry a local and become a legal resident, pay business fees and taxes, be a good citizen so as to be above suspicion. Then engage in their undercover work.

I remember in one place in the 70's the Arab owner was assaulted, almost killed and the perp immediately flew out of the country. It turns out the Arab store owner had not paid his protection money to Arafat's PA and was taught a lesson.

Many of the captured Soviet troops who joined the German Army during the war came from areas that were predominately Muslim-a large number from the Caucasian tribes that lived around the Caucasus mountains. Their fate at the end of the war when they were returned to Soviet jurisdiction was terrible.

The other issue was the the British and French controlled the Middle East. And it wasn’t new either. Imperial Germany tried to instigate Jihad in the entire Muslims world against the English, French and Russians.

The Soviets did evil things. This wasn't really one of them.

Sure. “Iran” is an Arabic pronunciation of “Aryan.”
