Susan, Hitler WAS a terrorist!

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:
in response to reader comment: those are not terrorists

Susan,

I am following with keen interest and genuine appreciation your contributions to this forum, but in this case I have the feeling that you and also some of our friends are missing an important point.

We must be aware that the argument that "not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim" as appealing as it sounds, doesn't hold water. This unfortunate argument is absolutely invalid and it is indeed counterproductive in any debate, because it is so easily refutable.

The Muslims do not hold exclusive monopoly on terrorism; not in the past, and not even at the present. You cannot argue that monsters like Hitler and Stalin were not terrorists, even if not of the same level. (Stalin probably must forgive me that I dare mention his notorious name in the same breath with that of Satan's beloved Hitler's.)

What make the Islamic terror indeed special are its current colossal dimensions, and that today it constitutes a deadly threat to the future of the civilization, and perhaps of the whole mankind. Although here and there one can find also some smaller, non-Islamic terror organizations, they are relatively insignificant and negligible. Today the Islamic terror holds an exclusive monopoly on this threat. Just try to imagine that one day these fanatic, suicidal Islamic weirdoes may acquire nuclear capability. This is the real danger at our doorstep, and this is the pain we must deal with now, today.

There were very dangerous terrorists also in the past (not necessarily Muslims) but they all have been already eliminated, they are gone, and are irrelevant.

On a side note, I would like to share with you an observation which I feel is noteworthy: Whenever the Satan was allowed to lift up his head on the Earth, as a rule he used to single out the Jewish People as his foremost and most hated enemy. Just the same like today!
