Muslim Brotherhood's "Struggle?"

Reader comment on item: The Islamic States of America?

Submitted by Rick Moran (United States), Sep 24, 2004 at 10:54

After the failed Beer Hall Putsch and his subsequent imprisonment, Adolph Hitler sat down and wrote "Mein Kampf " or My Struggle. In it, he laid out in precise detail exactly what he intended to do if he achieved power. The takeovers of Austria, the Sudentenland, Poland, France, and the Soviet Union were spelled out in black and white for whoever wanted to take the time to read the books' turgid prose.

The leaders of Europe, especially France and England, ignored what was in that book and they paid for it dearly. Even though what Hitler posited sounded outrageous (it came, after all, from a jailed political nobody whose "uprising" was the source of bad jokes throughout Europe), the catastrophe could have been prevented if the appeasers in France and Britain had taken heed of the warnings and acted accordingly.

The Muslim Brotherhood finds itself in a similar position as Hitler. They enjoy the luxury of no one believing them when they speak of their ultimate goals. And like the British and French before us, we ignore the danger signs at our own peril.
