Yesterday I wrote about the impotence that the world is showing through the UN in the face of Iran developing an Islamic nuclear weapon. There is a powerful historical parallel between the 1930s and today.
Adolf Hitler’s ideology combined a mystical destiny, an overwhelming sense of superiority, religion and an interminable hatred of Jews to form the fundamental tenets of National Socialism.
Mahmud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, presents a similar mix of beliefs that positions him and his country as the savior of Islam and the destroyer of all things Western. Ahmadinejad, Like Hitler, holds the belief that Jews are inherently evil and need to be eradicated in order to purify the world. And like Hitler, Ahmadinejad is arming Iran in preparation for a momentous confrontation with the hated Jews and their American supporters.
As Nazism flourished in most of Europe during the 1930s, so Islamism is now flourishing throughout the Middle and Far East. The avowed goal of Islamists, like that of the Nazis, is world domination and the extermination of the Jewish people. As such, the bellicose statements emanating from the likes of Ahmadinejad, Osama Bin Laden, the Taliban and others are reminiscent of the bellicosity that Hitler and his minions displayed prior to WWII.
The West, with the exception of Israel and the U.S. are behaving in much the same manner that their grandparents displayed during the 1930s. That is to say they do not believe war will come if only the Islamists get what they want. Much effort has been made to offer Iran material wealth and favorable trading terms in an attempt to purchase their abandoning the attainment of nuclear weapons. Yet, like Hitler, who took everything that was offered to him and gave nothing in return, Ahmadinejad is bound and determined that Iran will have nuclear weapons, his assertion that the nuclear program is for peaceful purposes notwithstanding
