When Adolf Hitler dispatched German troops to Austria, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain did nothing. When Hitler’s growing army was ready to invade the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia six months later, PM Chamberlain did nothing. Every time Chamberlain questioned his motives, Hitler reassured him that peace would come after the annexations. Chamberlain believed him each time and allowed Austria, Sudetenland and finally all of Czechoslovakia to be absorbed by Germany through succeeding concessions. After Germany had expended all the concessions Britain and France were willing to make, he invaded Poland, and the world was at war.
Hitler pursued his genocidal ambitions by simultaneously conducting a campaign of aggression while feigning peace. He passionately and, in some instances, violently gained control of the Rhineland, Austria, the Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia while he routinely persecuted, imprisoned and even killed Jews and opponents throughout Nazi Germany and the annexed territories.
Seventy years later, radical Islam is replicating Hitler’s strategy of aggression and feigned peace while pursuing the destruction of the Jewish nation. The Chamberlains of our time are still failing to recognize the historical similarities of these two eras.
Is this a coincidence? Or is it the 1930s all over again?
If history is an indicator of the future, then expect the Palestinians and their regional sponsors to continue creating and communicating insincere peace overtures, provided that Israel and the West continue to make concessions. Eventually all the concessions will be exhausted, and the armies of radical Islam will trash the feigned strategy of peace.
To illustrate the similarities, one would only have to recall an event in Cairo three weeks ago on May 4th. Hamas, the Iran-sponsored terrorist group, formed a unity government with Fatah, a U.S.- backed political organization based in the West Bank under the leadership of Mahmoud Abbas. The move was intended to project Palestinian unity and stability to gain legitimacy in the International community at the forefront of a possible declaration of a Palestinian state in September.
As Hamas’ leader, Khaled Mashaal, clearly demonstrates, the unity government is a false overture towards peace with Israel. While signing the agreement with Fatah in Cairo he said; “Our common enemy is Israel. Israel must be fought both with force and through diplomacy.”
The pact between Hamas and Fatah was invented primarily for Western leaders and media to secure more concessions from Israel. Chamberlains of today, President Obama and the European leaders are convinced that a competent Palestinian government does exist. As they posture peaceably to the world, they aggressively and violently persecute Jews, detonate school buses, and burn synagogues; yet our world leaders still regard them as legitimate peace partner.
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter praised the deal: “If the United States and the international community support this effort, they can help Palestinian democracy and establish the basis for a unified Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza that can make a secure peace with Israel.” As the peace-loving Fatah-Hamas unity government projected stability, thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters from Lebanon, Syria, Jordon, West Bank and Gaza stormed the borders of Israel. One protestor attempted to construct a road side bomb while another in Tel Aviv went on a rampage with a truck, killing one person and injuring 17.
Did the peace-loving Fatah-Hamas unity government condemn the violent Nakba protests?
Mahmoud Abbas, Fatah’s “moderate leader” praised the protests and Gaza’s Hamas leader, Ismail Haniya, gave a sermon at a local mosque in honor of Nakba Day. Haniya stated that violent acts of terrorism were not to be abandoned, even within the Palestinian reconciliation agreement. We caught a glimpse of the peace loving Fatah-Hamas led government when Haniya stated that the Nakba protests were the “first application” of the Hamas-Fatah reconciliation.
Under the sanction of Fatah and Hamas, pro-Palestinian groups conducted a campaign for “a third Palestinian intifada,” better known as “an armed uprising.” The rational mind would view these events as convincing evidence that neither Hamas, Fatah nor most Palestinians really have any desire to establish lasting peace with Israel. By embracing Nakba (which refers to the day of Israel’s establishment as a catastrophe), it is clear that the Palestinian leadership has no interest in living in peace with Israel.
History will always repeat itself if the Chamberlains of the modern world fail to heed the lessons of Nazi Germany prior to World War II. This isn’t a mere coincidence, but a carefully prolonged strategy laid out by the founding fathers of radical Islam under the tutelage of Eichmann and Himmler since the 1930s.
With history as our guide, we can trace the today’s radical Islamic groups back to Nazi Germany Hasan al-Banna formed the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1920s which has since become the largest Islamic party in the world. There are many flavors and branches; but they are all the Muslim Brotherhood. Taking lessons from Joseph Goebbels and Adolf Hitler, the Brotherhood has convinced the world that the turmoil in the Mideast and our economic problems are solely due to world Jewry. With the elimination of Jewish occupation, we can find peace between Radical Islam and the West. Today, we can hear the same lies starting to permeate the air in Europe as Islam becomes more entrenched within the European society.
