Mass hysteria in Turkey: Soon ‘For Muslims only’
The point here is that the ruling AK party and their cronies are trying to gain political and economical advantage about the Swiss vote to ban the ‘imperialist’ minarets.
More saddening is that two friends of mine felt into a trap and show some hysterical behavior in their columns of today: Mustafa Aykol and Orhan Kemal Cengiz. It reminds me about what Jung once said; Show me one sane man and I will cure him.
Here a short reaction of mine. And I hope that the Islam world can take of that sign and image of ‘For Muslims Only’ ..one day.
Mustafa, your interpretation of this ban of minarets (In Islamite countries seen as the dominant factor of their religion in their society) has all to do with fear. Logically, when people felt trapped and threatened in their own culture and heritage and fear that one day Islam will create parallel societies in their countries, take for example the UK with its 80 Sharia courts which threat the lives of Muslim women in this country. And especially when your PM Erdogan once cited: Our minarets are our bayonets. Your compared Nazi Germany with contemporary Europe where Muslims have more rights than in their countries of birth. About fascism, while Europe was suffering under the rule of the inhuman Nazi’s, the Arab world embraced Nazism. Fascism is a cult and rejects all religions, but Nazi Germany had warm relations with the Arab world. Khomeiny, the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Arab leaders such as Sayyid Qutb of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, as well as the Palestinian leader Haj Amin al-Husseini admired Hitler. Sami al-Joundi, one of the founders of the ruling Syrian Ba’ath Party, recalls: “We were racists. We admired the Nazis. We were immersed in reading Nazi literature and books… We were the first who thought of a translation of Mein Kampf. Anyone who lived in Damascus at that time was witness to the Arab Inclination toward Nazism, like the “Hisb-el-qaumi-el-suri” (PPS) or Social Nationalist Party in Syria. The first Syrian Baath leader, Anton Sa’ada, styled himself the Führer of the Syrian nation, and Hitler became known as “Abu Ali” (In Egypt his name was “Muhammed Haidar”). The banner of the PPS displayed the swastika on a black-white background, until today, even in Lebanon. Until this very nice day in December, fascism flourish in the Arab world. Now you know why there are only one single parties in that part of the world with the big exception of Israel. I recommend you to watch the six hour documentary ‘Nazis, a warning from history’ before make such ridiculous claims about what happened in the 30ties in Germany and these days in Europe. In fact you incite hatred towards non-Muslims.
