US Congress 1939: Fear if 'Bibleland becomes Koranland' - Nazi - Islamic alliance menace

Reader comment on item: Nazi Propaganda for the Arab World

Submitted by Ilya (United States), Jan 5, 2011 at 16:15

Fascinating speech in U.S. Congress, in 1939

Amog the highlights:

  • Nazi Jew hatred is really anti - Bible.
  • Arab Muslim character of totalitarianism - bigotry and war upon all non-Muslim minorities. Nazi aid for Arab terrorists. France's creation of Lebanon - originally designed to protect Christians from totalitarian Islam. The menace of Nazism to both Christianity and Judaism because of its alliance with 'pan-Islamism.'

Congressional record: proceedings and debates of the ... Congress, Volume 60, Part 1, United States. Congress, Govt. Print. Off., 1939, Page 2516

The main content of Nazi propaganda everywhere are anti-Semitism, authoritarianism, and attacks upon democracy. Nazi Jew hatred implies much more than the social and political anti-Semitism of pre-Aryan days. It Implies a war upon the Bible, the greatest spiritual force in white man's history. In the final analysis, it Implies not only the destruction of the synagogue but the annihilation of the church as well.
[...]
If the Bible is eliminated, the entire fabric of Christianity must collapse. The Nazis beholding a naturalistic world must necessarily battle the Bible with its purely spiritual outlook upon life.
This explains best the statement so often made by Nazi leaders that the war upon Judaism will not end with the destruction of German Jewry, for the enemy to not so much the Jew as his Book, the Bible. The Nazis are sensible of the fact that Biblical Idealism overwhelmed and defeated naturalistic Rome and, if left untouched, will one day overcome and destroy nazi-ism as well. Hence, the Bible and its creator, the Jew, must be annihilated and its present adherents, Christian and Jewish, weakened and uprooted. This is not the first time that Christianity and Judaism have Jointly been threatened with...
... There they have established an Intimate contact with the Arabs and have Inspired a reign of terror against the Jew. German diplomatic and consular representatives in the Holy Land have allied themselves openly with the Arab terrorists, supplying them with arms and money. Almost all the guns confiscated from these Arabs have been of German manufacture....

The consummation of this program will free the Arabs from both antagonists, Judaism and Christianity, simultaneously. The new Arab states of the Near East are resolved to be Islamic In the fullest degree. The fate of the Christian Assyrians In the Iraq and of the Jews In the Yemen and in all other Arab countries exemplifies best the character of Arab totalitarianism, resulting In cruel religious intolerance and In war upon religious minorities...
To protect the one-half million Christians in the Lebanon from Arab persecution, the French Government in granting independence to Syria was compelled to carve out Christian Lebanon as a separate state. The experiences of non-Moslems in Islamic countries fully Justifies such measures. The fear is therefore but too well founded that if Bibleland becomes Koranland not only the Jewish population of almost one-half million souls but also its Christian group of 110000 will be doomed. Neither Judaism nor Christianity can afford to permit their common spiritual motherland to come under the dominion of totalitarian and authoritarian Islam.
A celebrated American statesman, the late Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, expressed this conviction soon after the English conquest of Palestine. In an address delivered at the Hotel Astor, New York City, on June 13, 1922, he stated: "Because of my belief In religious freedom and in religious tolerance, I never could accept in patience the thought that Jerusalem and Palestine should be under the control of the Mohammedans, as they have been since 1244 with only a..."
[...]
It Is therefore obvious that the preservation of Palestine as Bibleland must be one of the main postulates of the Christian Church. Nazi-ism is not only a threat to Christianity and Judaism alike In the West, but because of its alliance with pan-Islamlsm, it is menacing the position of both Biblical religions in the East as well.
