Islamism and Nazism - two sides of the same coin
Hamas spokesman, Dr Ismail Radwan, declared on Palestinian Authority TV, 30th March 2007: "The Hour (Resurrection) will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, and the rock and the tree will say: Oh, Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, kill him!"
Compare Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda to that presently being propagated by Islamist groups, and you may begin to understand why Jews worldwide are beginning to feel unconfortable. In last week's Spectator, the Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, was asked if he had noticed any unease in anti-Semitism? He replied:
‘Oh my goodness yes, it is on the rise,’ said Sacks. ‘I never experienced a single incidence of anti-semitism in my whole life, but when my daughter was studying at LSE, she went to an anti-globalisation rally which quickly turned into a tirade against Israel and America and then a tirade against Jews and she came back in tears and she said: “Dad, they hate us.” That sent a shiver down my spine, I just thought we were beyond that. That was nine years ago and it has got worse ever since.
As the above video observes: "The worst form of child abuse is teaching a child to hate." It is for all of us to address the rise of this evil, but for Muslim groups in particular to disown and condemn it unequivocally.
