While newspaper reports typically describe Muslim attacks on Jews as a product of Middle Eastern politics or Israel's own War on Terrorism, such a simplistic explanation ignores the fact that Muslims have been attacking and killing Jews for centuries. With the advent of large scale Muslim immigration to Europe, countries such as France, England and Sweden have become new hunting grounds for hate filled Muslim mobs.
Just as the Nazis who believed in their own racial superiority and their right to kill or subjugate inferior races, inevitably targeted Europe's Jewish minority-- so too Muslims whose Quran teaches that Jews are the descendants of Pigs and Apes and whose prophet Mohammed, like Hitler, commanded the ethnic cleansing of Jews from what is today Saudi Arabia, believe that they have the right and obligation to attack and murder Jews.
Nor are Muslim attacks limited to Jews. The rise of Islamofascism in Europe has seen Muslim persecution of Sikhs, Hindus, Christians and non-Muslim Africans. Even dissident Muslims are not immune from the threat of Islamic ReligioPolitical terror, as Salman Rushdie's case demonstrates.
Like any form of Fascism, Islamism seeks supremacy over all, and employs bigotry and violence as a means to power. The modern day terrorism of the Muslim is as much influenced by Adolf Hitler as by Mohammed, as German researcher Matthias Kuenzel has clearly shown, tracing the influence and appeal of Hitler's ideology on 20th century Muslims. Islamofascism traces its rise to that ugly synthesis of Mohammed and Hitler, the Koran and Mein Kampf, both among the most popular books in the Muslim world, and a great deal of 20th century Muslim terror traces itself back to that incestuous marriage of Islam and Fascism as well.
In today's Europe, Muslims have become the new Nazis, and like the original Nazis, their rise to power is built on terror and Jews once again are the chief targets of their hatred. As a minority the world over, Jews have commonly served as the "canary in the coal mine" warning of the rise to power of totalitarian ideologies. The wave of attacks by Muslims against European Jewry serve as an alarm bell warning of the rise of a new Nazism, dressed up with a green armband, a black headcovering and a bomb belt.
Europe after the war vowed to resist fascism and prevent the Holocaust from ever happening again, but in the name of tolerance, Islamofascism has found a home in Europe, and attacks on Jews have once again become commonplace. Tolerance for Fascism gives the serpent a warm place in the nation's bosom to grow and spawn, and tolerance for Islam has made not just the Jews of Europe, but all of Europe into the targets of Muslim brutality and terror.
The latest assaults and Synagogue burnings taking place across Europe, in Britain, Sweden and France, is only the latest ring of an alarm bell warning that the dreadful events of the 1930's are beginning to repeat themselves. Just as then, Fascism has many defenders who are all too willing to let Muslims play the victim of the Jews, as the Nazis were allowed to play at being the victims of Europe, until it was much too late.
Those who enable the modern day Fascism of Islam by allowing the brute to play the victim are however should be aware that they not doing anyone a favor. Coddling Nazism and agitating for its appeasement did not prevent war, it brought on a horrifying war that left much of Europe in ruins. Coddling Islam and agitating for its appeasement will not usher in some sort of utopian multicultural society, but a horrifying war in which the devastation in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the bombings of 9/11, 7/11 and the Madrid Train Bombings are only the early rumblings of a much larger conflict.
The Nazis first came for the Jews, and no one spoke up. By the time they were done, a great charnel house stretched from London to deep inside Russia, torched homes moaned in the wind and the cemeteries and trenches of Europe were filled with the dead. The Muslims have come for the Jews, but they have not stopped there and will not stop there. Across Europe the slow realization is growing that Islamofascism cannot be quieted with appeasement and that the wave of Muslim terror continues to spread.
Silence in the face of evil is an option, but it is an option that will end the same way-- with a devastated Europe and long endless kilometers inhabited only by the dead. And this time, Europe can no longer count on America for aid, and can expect only treachery from Russia. Each day, Muslim strength continues to grow, and each act of appeasement emboldens their Islamofascist drive to power. And each planeload and boatload of Muslim immigrants imports a new wave of modern day Nazis into the heartlands of Europe.
