Islamic cleric: Hitler was right

July 28, 2010

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.”

Antisemitic idiot: “I’m sorry, don’t hate my movies!”

July 27, 2010

Having made a jackass of himself over the weekend, film director Oliver Stone has apologized:

“In trying to make a broader historical point about the range of atrocities the Germans committed against many people, I made a clumsy association about the Holocaust, for which I am sorry and I regret.

“Jews obviously do not control media or any other industry. The fact that the Holocaust is still a very important, vivid and current matter today is, in fact, a great credit to the very hard work of a broad coalition of people committed to the remembrance of this atrocity — and it was an atrocity.”

Call me a cynic, but I think this apology was motivated less by a sincere regret for saying hurtful and untrue things than by a sincere regret that those hurtful and untrue things became publicly known. After all,  Stone still is bosom buddies with Hugo Chavez, himself a devout antisemite.

Roman Polanski, Mel Gibson, and Oliver Stone. What a trio to represent Hollywood, eh?  Rolling Eyes

Oliver Stone: “I am an idiot!”

July 26, 2010

Well, he didn’t say that in so many words, but that’s the takeaway from the antisemitic, Hitler-apologetic interview he gave to the UK’s Sunday Times decrying Jewish domination of the media:

Director Oliver Stone belittled the Holocaust during a shocking interview with the Sunday Times today, claiming that America’s focus on the Jewish massacre was a product of the “Jewish domination of the media.”

The director also defended Hitler and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and railed against the “powerful lobby” of Jews in America.

Stone said that his upcoming Showtime documentary series “Secret History of America,” seeks to put Hitler and Communist dictator Joseph Stalin “in context.”

“Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein. German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support,” Stone told reporter Camilla Long during the interview, which can be found behind the paywall on the Sunday Times’ website.

Henry Ford was an antisemite, but that’s a long way from being a genocidal maniac, and Stone’s cry for “context” seems to be nothing more than a way to soften the crimes of two of History’s worst monsters. But Stone isn’t just fond of long-dead dictators; he has a soft spot for modern tyrants, too, such as Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez:

The Scarface screenwriter had even more encouraging words for socialist Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, who Stone called “a brave, blunt, earthy” man. The director has recently been promoting his Chavez-praising documentary called “South of the Border.”

When the interviewer pointed out that Chavez has had a less-than-stellar record on human rights, Stone immediately dismissed the criticism.

“The internet’s fully free [in Venezuela],” said Stone. “You can say what the hell you like. Compare it with all the other countries: Mexico, Guatemala, above all Colombia, which is a joke.”

While Stone has not been as blunt about his views on Jews and the Holocaust in the past, he has been outspoken in his fondness for Chavez and his disagreements with the U.S.’s policy on Iran.

Oh yeah, he hearts President Gilligan Ahmadinejad, too.

It’s hard to work up any outrage over this -Stone’s been known as a conspiracy nut for years- but it’s still pathetic that someone holding these views can become influential in Hollywood. Sadly, in a town that a) leans strongly to the Left and b) can lionize the likes of Roman Polanski, I suspect this nauseating interview won’t hurt his career too much at all.

TANGENT: It’s a shame the Times has gone behind a paywall. I’ve heard (but haven’t had confirmed) that online readership is way down, as people refuse to pay the price. Perhaps the publishers will relent and make their site freely accessible once again.

UPDATE: Not surprisingly, the American Jewish Committee has denounced Oliver Stone:

“By invoking this grotesque, toxic stereotype, Oliver Stone has outed himself as an anti-Semite,” said AJC Executive Director David Harris. “For all of Stone’s progressive pretensions, his remark is no different from one of the drunken, Jew-hating rants of his fellow Hollywood celebrity, Mel Gibson.”
