Allah for Hitler and America for Allah

Reader comment on item: How Islamists Came to Dominate European Islam

Submitted by Ianus (Poland), May 25, 2010 at 16:05

I am very grateful for this review and some personal recollections of Dr. Pipes . Although representing America's interests Dr. Pipes tries to face many vagaries and treachery of US policy as e.g. when he exposed how American official policy undermines Israel or now when he draws our attention to the sad fact of how deep the US policy has been involved in strengthening Islam . True , Dr. Pipes faithful to his idiosyncrasy speaks of "Islamists" , where a pedestrian reader like myself sees just "Moslems" .

Dr. Pipes brilliantly reviews how the legacy of Islamofascism - which he mentioned in an earlier article -has been utilized by the official US agencies to promote the unholy alliance between America and Islam . Frankly speaking , I wasn't aware of how deep and remote roots this unholy alliance has got . I knew about Roosevelt's secret dealings and promises to ibn Saud to thwart the Jewish efforts to create their state . I knew also about massive use of ex-Nazis by the Americans . But the Moslem scheme of the US is something new to me . It's revealing though and alas confirms my impressions and strong suspicions about America's real objectives and principles. It seems now that America is as treacherous and unreliable as its Moslem darlings , being ready to sell us all to the Moslem devil if it could thereby gain some political and/or economic profits as it did sell the Balkans to Moslems in the 1990-ies. What I was aware is a later stage of this post WWII alliance during its heyday in the American-sponsored jihad in Afghanistan and on the Balkans sealed with the creation of two fully-fledged Moslem states of Bosnia and Kosovo by America . I had no clue that this perfidy all started as early as 1945.

Another thing that comes to my mind on reading the article is that after all one has to be amazed by flexiblity , total lack of principle and the really Protean nature of Islam which does join hands with any possible power as well as its opponent to promote its own rise to power , to enhance its secret aims to dominate the world . Islam's unholy alliances have included not just Hitler , Mussolini or Franco . They have included both capitalism and communism , nationalism and Catholicism , multiculturalism and racism ... Whether the useful idiot is called Roosevelt , Reagan, Brzezinski , Clinton , Bush or Obama or Hitler or Lenin is not important as long as the cause of Allah profits from it . Most kafirs in power still seem not to understand this diabolical logic and single-mindedness of Islam and continue to play its dirty game.

One more comment . Dr. Pipes writes :

"Johnson opens with a review of the systematic Nazi efforts to recruit Soviet Muslims from among their prisoners of war. Many Muslims loathed Stalin; and between 150,000 and 300,000 of them fought for the Axis in World War II."

There is an interesting, well-documented study in Russian by Oleg Valentinovich Romanko , Moslem legions during WWII, Moscow 2004 , on the issue . It gives the number of Soviet Moslem volunteers between 290 000 -305 000 out of the total of 415 000 – 440 000 Moslems who openly fought for Hitler .

We read : "during WWII c. 2 000 000 men with foreign citizenship served in the German Armed Forces which amounts to c. 12% of the total personnel of the German Armed Forced that between 1939-1945 numbered c. 17 000 000. With such a number of men c. 157 German infantry divisions or analogous units could be formed and manned. [...] It can be safely said that between 1941-1945 c. 415 000 - 440 000 Moslem volunteers served in the German armed Forces in the following categories.

-Arabs and Moslems from India - 5000 and 2000 correspondigly

- Moslems from the Balkans c. 115 000 -125 000

- Soviet Moslems c. 290 000 and 305 000

It amounts to 22-23% of all the foreign volunteers and 2,5-2,6% of all the German Armed Forces between 1939-1945. [...] With this amount of Moslem volunteers 34-35 German infantry divisions or analogous units could be formed and manned [...] Besides, the Moslem SS men had a privileged position withing the foreign SS volunteers. They enjoyed practically the same rights as German soldiers which was not the case for other non-Moslem foreign volunteers in the SS." [Ibidem, p. 227-231]
