"can we truly blame these Soviet Muslims who went over to the Axis?" An interesting question, indeed . Yet if we don't blame them, they why should we blame Hitler ? Because of the Jews ? But , frankly, nobody cared for the Jews during the holocaust . They were abandoned by the West and the Jewish question emerged only after 1945 where suddenly the WWII turned out to be a war to save the Jews in the Allied propaganda .

Disculpating Moslems reminds me strongly of the perverted Moslem mindset and if we follow this Moslem "logic" we can never blame Moslems for anything . Irrespective of their crimes and atrocities Moslems are always "innocent" and deny reality where it suits their interests. In vain we will look for any crime perpetrated by Moslems and admitted by them . So I'd rather warn against giving Moslems too much credit where they deserve none at all .

"Yes, the Holocaust was perhaps the greater crime , but the Nazi-Soviet War was one between two great tribes of modern barbarians." Very curious historiosphy . Thinking in these metaphysical terms one might easily forget one of these "great tribes of modern barbarians" was the chief ally of America , its leader (Uncle Joe) the most popular figure after FDR during the war and the power that really saved the miserable rest of the European Jews from sure annihilation through Hitler and his Muslim/Latvian/Estonian/Lithuanian/Ukrainian/Croatian friends and willing executioners.
