Islamic cleric: Hitler was right

Posted by: Phineas on July 28, 2010 at 2:13 pm

Hussam Fawzi Jabar hosts a program on religion on Egyptian TV. In a recent episode, he let his viewers know exactly what he thought of Jews and Der Führer’s plans for them:

Here’s an excerpt from the transcript:

This is the nature of the Jews. By nature, they abhor keeping their commitments. By nature, they hate peace. By nature, they love treachery, betrayal, deception, killing, and blood. This is their nature.


It is very sad to see some of our own people, who speak our own tongue, try to convince their peoples that the Jews are peace-loving, that a solution to the satisfaction of both parties can be reached with them. I say that whoever says this and tries to convince others should either deny what is said in the Koran and the Sunna, and accept what the Jews say as truth, or else deny what the Jews say and accept what is said in the Koran and the Sunna. There is no third alternative.


The Jews are not happy living among their neighbors unless they are harboring hatred toward them, betraying, and deceiving them. They are always ready and prepared to generate reasons for this. This is why the West in its entirety got rid of the Jews, by creating a new country for them in Palestine. They spew them out away from them, and gave them a new country, at the expense of Islam and the Muslims.

At the same time, the West uses the Jews as a pitchfork with which to stab the giant [Islam] whenever it begins to awaken. If Egypt arises, Israel goes to war with it. If Syria arises, Israel begins clashes with it. If Lebanon arises, Israel starts conflicts with it. When Iraq arose, global Zionism mobilized the entire Western world to occupy Iraq. When Afghanistan arose… And so on and so forth… It stabs the giant [Islam] whenever it wants to awaken.

One of the most amazing things I have read is that Hitler said: “I could have annihilated all the Jews of the world, but I left some of them, so that you would understand why I did this to them.” Hitler was right to say what he said and to do what he did to the Jews.

Charming fellow, no? Be sure to watch the whole clip or read the whole transcript, because the genocide-admiring Jabar drinks deep from the well of Islamic paranoia and self-pity, imagining atrocities against Muslims by all sorts of people around the world, not just Jews.

But don’t doubt the special hatred Islam bears for Jews, which predates any contact with the Nazis. Islamic sacred texts are replete admonitions and violence against the Jews, from the Qur’an to the hadiths (sayings and deeds of Muhammad and his earliest companions) and the earliest biography of Muhammad. Islamic law mandates an inferior position for Jews in society. For a good, thorough survey of this topic, see Bostom’s The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism.

Far from being an extremist, Mr. Jabar is well within bounds of orthodox Islamic opinion regarding the “Enemies of Allah,” and it isn’t that of a “religion of tolerance.”

  1. Can there be any doubt about the intentions of Islam? Why does the left continue to apologize for and defend Islam?

    So this guy and Oliver Stone are BFF now? Bet they’re all over each other’s Facebook pages.

    Sounds more like a description of Islamists…not Jews!

    ….where’s the love??? =((

  5. Phineas says:


    Probably a form of projection? ;)

  6. Carlos says:

    Don’t forget, we heard it from the lips of the “conservative master” himself, GWB: this is a religion of peace!

    Yeah, well, with peaceful neighbors like that one doesn’t need enemies.

    And those imbeciles can’t figure out why the west doesn’t trust them?

  7. Steve Skubinna says:

    Carlos, you wish GWB were conservative. You haven’t the faintest idea what that means, other than “some guy I hate.”

  8. S Rahman says:

    Mr Jabar, the Islamic clergy, is lacking in knowledge of the Quran PERIOD!!

    Another Hadith says: “O people! People are of two types; pious, righteous, estimable before Allah or nefarious, wretched, insignificant before Allah. All the people are descendants of Adam and Allah created Adam with soil.” (Timizi, Baihaqi)
    This was the first example of its kind in human history that the Quran eradicated racial prejudice so vehemently and emphatically, and asserted Muslims to consider the people of the world their brother and a human being like themselves. It uprooted racial hatred and asked to treat each other with good conduct. It is the fundamental principle of tolerance to consider the other communities human being like yourselves; since then only you can behave with them tolerantly and morally. If we consider them humiliated, abject and lowly then it is impossible to have a moral and tolerant conduct towards them.

    CONCLUSION: Dear brothers & sisters of the world (whicever religion you may be in) PLEASE go through the above 49 verses of the Holy Quran and then comment.

    The Egyptian clergy was wrong in his statements. He is a fanatic NOT a true Muslem!!

    Love for mankind and PEACE for the whole world.

    Dear Brothers & Sisters of the world;
    Salaam (Peace).

    Hope this helps many!


  10. Jo says:

    Ah, now here is the true definition of the Peace Loving Religion! The left are right on this one, my fellow right wingers! We’ve been wrong to paint these poor downtrodden folks as hatemongers! What have we been thinking?????:d

  11. Carlos says:

    Steve, Obviously my post went right over your head.

    GWB was no more a conservative than is McCain, and not much more of one than was Specter of PA. Yes, I am very familiar with what it is to be a conservative.

    I don’t wish to start a sniping battle here, sir. I enjoy your comments and think you add much to each discussion. But you missed the point of that comment, which was, even those many consider conservative are completely wrong when it comes to Islam.

    In my considered opinion, Islam is the enemy, not islamists. It is a vile and dangerous religion, self-serving and without social merit when taken as a whole. It teaches treachery, subjugation and death, none of which has a place in a discussion of “peace.”

  12. Phineas says:


    In my considered opinion, Islam is the enemy, not islamists.

    Even “Islamists” is a misnomer. The word originally meant “a scholar who studies Islam,” such as Bernard Lewis. It arose as a euphemism for jihadists, I think, from those who were looking for a more politically palatable word to use than simply saying “Islam” or “Muslims.” And that’s part of the problem we face in the struggle with the renewed jihad: our unwillingness to plainly name the foe – Muslims who embrace the doctrine of Islamic supremacy and act upon it through violent and/or cultural jihad.

    But in an administration that calls war a “overseas contingency operation,” I seriously doubt we’ll ever hear someone use the word “jihadist.”

  13. Steve Hussein Skubinna says:

    Damn it Carlos, why didn’t you use /sarc tags!!!11!!eleventy!!!

    Yes Phineas, “Islamist” used today covers lots of ground. But I believe scholars such as Bernard Lewis have long been more commonly known as “Orientalists,” at least until the word was highjacked and made into a perjorative by hacks such as the late unlamented Edward Said.

  14. Phineas says:


    Yeah, turning “Orientalist” into a pejorative is one of Said’s many crimes against academia. :-w

  15. Carlos says:

    Sorry, Steve, my bad. I’ll try to remember next time, but rarely use it because most of my comments have sarcasm to some degree or another.

    If all you knew about me was from comments (here and elsewhere), you would think I’m a bitter old man.

    In fact, the opposite is true. I’m a very happy person with a wonderful life, retired, but see a falling away from the traits that made this country great, and that saddens me. I will not go quietly into that dark night of socialism, and intend to use whatever petty powers of language I have to convince whomever I can that freedom, all freedom, is what’s at stake here.

    We are being attacked from within by a president bent on his own ideological vision of an “academiocracy,” very socialist, very denigrating and demeaning to the human spirit.

    We are also being attacked from without by the very heart of intolerant Islam, which seeks to fulfill the commands of the Quran; that is, subjugate, enslave or kill. Those are the only options for a Muslim, and consequently anyone who calls themselves a Muslim automatically becomes my enemy, at one level or another.
