The Koran Versus Mein Kampf

A recent comment thread here at PI compared Herr Hitler's Manifesto from over 80 years ago, "Mein Kampf", to that "holy of holies" to Muslims, the Koran. Commenters have noted the remarkable similarities between the two, and indeed, the resemblances are more than skin deep and are worth examining in more detail. A closer look at the facts reveals that Islam (not 'Islamism') and Nazism are two kindred ideologies with many, many commonalities.

Let's start with titles. The very title of Herr Hitler's tome means "My Struggle" in English. One could even entitle this book "My Jihad" and this Islamic term would have the same precise meaning. "Kampf" in a Nazi ideological context and "Jihad" in the Islamic one are almost identical. That in itself goes a long way to explaining why 'Mein Kampf' is still such a best seller in current times all over the Islamic World, including in supposedly 'moderate' Islamic states like Turkey.

But the similiarities between the Koran and Mein Kampf don't just stop there. Far from it. Fellow blogger and ally Freedom Fighter over at his/her blog Joshua Pundit has come up with an exceptional, enlightning list of how alike Islam and Nazism really are:
Mein Kampf- States that Germans are the superior race of mankind and that Germany is destined to rule the world , and dominate all other races and nations.

The Q'uran-States that Islam and Muslims are the superiors of mankind and that Islam is divinely mandated to rule the world and dominate all other races, creeds and nations.

...

Mein Kampf-Says that the German State is to have control over every aspect of life. Says all individuals must submit to the State.

The Q'uran-Says that Islam and Sharia is to have control over every aspect of life. Says all individuals must submit to Islam.

...

Mein Kampf-Says that Germans have the duty to claim their divinely appointed place in the world by whatever means necessary. Puts loyalty to the Volk (the race) above all other ethical considerations.

The Q'uran-Says that Muslims have a duty to wage Jihad and to advance Islam's domination over the world (Dar Islam and Dar Harb) by any means necessary. Places loyalty to fellow Muslims (Umma) and Islam above all other ethical considerations.

...

Mein Kampf-Mandates that men are superior to women and that women's place should be limited to procreation, the kitchen and the home.

The Q'uran-Mandates that men are superior to women and that women's place should be limited to procreation, the kitchen and the home. (Admittedly, the Q'uran goes quite a bit farther than Mein Kampf on this topic)

...

Mein Kampf-Says that homosexuals are 'race traitors' and should be condemned to death. (Many, in fact were murdered in the concentration camps).

The Q'uran-Says homosexuals are unholy to Allah and should be condemned to death

...

Mein Kampf-Sets out a detailed model for world conquest, including rules for how conquered peoples are to be suppressed and dominated by the German race. States that the wealth, resources and property of subject peoples belongs to Germans by right and the right to life for subject peoples is dependent on Germans. States that non-Germans have no legal or civil rights.

The Q'uran-Sets out a detailed model for world conquest, including rules for how conquered peoples are to be suppressed and dominated by Muslims. States that the wealth, resources and property of subject peoples belongs to Muslims by right and the right to life for subject peoples is dependent on Muslims. States that non-Muslims have no legal or civil rights. (in truth, a lot of this has its basis in the Hadith and the Sunna, but both derive essentially from what's in the Q'uran, along with all the other aspects of Sharia).

...

Mein Kampf-Divides the world into 'German land' and enemy territory. States that land with Germans living in it or land that once had Germans ruling it rightfully belongs to Germany, and Germany is entitled to get it back by any means necessary.

The Q'uran-Divides the world into 'Dar al Islam' (Muslim ruled land) and enemy territory (Dar al Harb). States that land with Muslims living in it or land that once had Muslims ruling it rightfully belongs to Dar al Islam, and Muslims are entitled to get it back by any means necessary.

...

Mein Kampf-Blames the Jews for society's ills and says that they will be exterminated.

The Q'uran-Blames the Jews for society's ills and says that they will be exterminated. ("On the day of Judgement the rocks and trees will call out 'O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me! Come and slay him!")

Islam and Nazism. Mohammed and Hitler. As plain as day, they are cut from the same cloth.

Excellent piece here! How true your words are! How serious the situation is! How blind Westerners are to the dangers that lie ahead for all lovers of freedom and democracy!

European Kafir said...

And I thought I was the first (and only one) who noticed the similarities....:-(.
No, no kidding, the similarities between quran and "Mein Kampf" which have been shown on the blog are amazing!

John Sobieski said...

Islam has that magic kicker - "it's a religion" that has allowed it make such inroads. It's a grostesque form of Nazism with a veneer of monotheism to get it past its enemies and breed within, kinda like a virus.

Freedom Fighter said...

Thanks for the write up, anti-JIhadist.I got a lot of response on the original piece..maybe a fatwa, for all I know : )

Glad you liked this one....I originally got the idea when Orianna Fallacci was attacked for making the comparison, so I decided to subject it to cold, hard analysis, seeing as I've read both books (heavy going, I assure you!).

I've beenworking on something at JoshuaPundit that I'll unveil in the next week or so, about a solution to all this.

eyesallaround said...

Wow that's a really great analysis!!! I might steal it if you don't mind, hat tip of course. Excellent!

Pastorius said...

Anti-Jihadist,

Will you do me a favor and post this on IBA, along with the Jihadi Swastika?

If you don't have time, do I have your permission?

The Anti-Jihadist said...

Posted per your request, Pastorius. Although regrettably, Blogspot is being its usual cantankerous self and not letting me upload any images. Pity, as I had an excellent image conjured up for Hitler and his buddy Mo.

friendlysaviour said...

The crowded masses are as one body, calling out their incantations of Black-Magick.
Their hands raise to the sky in invocation of the appearance of the apparition of their evil Masters.
Their voices unite in unbridled shouts and screaming bile.

Last Century those voices roared,..
Sieg Heil, Seig Heil.

This Century those voices are screaming,...
Jii-had, Jii-had.

I await the return of the spirit of survival, the spirit of Freedom, that forced the breath of the demon- callers back down their throats.
What was done once before, can be done again, Evil did not triumph then, but saught new garments, and has returned to torment Humanity again.
When Freedom turns from it's hesitant backward steps, it will return with the fury of the lions roar, and the words jihad, jihad, will choke the mouths that utter them.

The world must wake up the mentality of the Mohameddan ...

Conscience seared with hot iron ...

These cowards think heaven is filled with lusty maidens ...

But one day they'll face the Judgment ...

Norm said...

It's nice to see there are others who can see what is really going on in the world.

I live in the UAE - supposedly moderate country (which practises media and internet censorship!) and the biggest best seller is Mein Kampf right now...

Islam is the biggest threat to civillisation and freedom the world has ever seen. I am glad that some of us can see this.

the watchman said...

respect for human life is a theme that is strangely absent outside of the bible, its teachings were born into a world almost completely void of such compassion,as long as the jewish state remains, so does the story and history of a caring, loving, and compassionate god (whoms teachings and philosophy affords and protects the freedoms we hold dear), this is something that the enemy of freedom cannot afford. this strategy is deeper and much more sinister than just nazis and muslims. the plan is to snuff out the one true source of authority that keeps all people under the same conviction of love and respect for human life. "the word of god"

Islam was founded by a demented,pedophile warlord,mohammed.He was contacted by Satan,who said he was the angel Gabriel,and started a religion of evil.Hitler was similar in many ways,but Mohammed was by far the more evil.Islam should destroyed root and branch.

uuhhmmm... you do realize that all these points can be applied to christianity as well, right? crusades? anyone?

To get a more in depth and specific writeup of the ties between the Qur'an and Islamic Scripture, check out http://prophetofdoom.net/Mein_Kampf.Islam
Also interesting while on the topic, is the overwhelming collusion between the "Palestinian" Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Nazis and their Final Solution http://prophetofdoom.net/Islamic_Clubs_Mufti_Mujahideen.Islam

And to those who make a comparison between "christian" religions and Islam, they show a very shallow appreciation of scripture - Nazi, Islam, and Judeo-Christian. The horrid acts done in the name of Christianity are very much counter to the scriptures upon which they claim divine authority, while even the most attrocious behavior by Muslims is not only condoned by Islam - it is demanded. And Islam's sole role model and spokesperson, Muhammad, is depicted as a murderer, pedophile, rapist, liar, and terrorist in it's very own scriptures.

Both authors were isolated after a defeat - Hitler blinded and alone after ww1, Mohammad isolated in the desert after the fall of his home city. Both manifested their ideers during this fase.

"And to those who make a comparison between "christian" religions and Islam, they show a very shallow appreciation of scripture"

Yeah, ordering genocide over and over again like the "judeo-christian" god is SO unlike islam. Slaughtering the midianitis and keeping the virginal girl children alive to rape for yourselves is MUCH more enlightened than Islam!

Deuteronomy 3:3 So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining. (3:3-6)
The Israelites, with God's help, kill all the men, women, and children of 60 cities.
3:4 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
3:5 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.
3:6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.
3:7 But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves.

Yeah, that's WAY more enlightened than the koran.

"the horrid acts done in the name of Christianity are very much counter to the scriptures upon which they claim divine authority,"


No, slaughtering innocent men,women and children ISN"T counter to the bible because the bible endorsed such behavior since the beginning. Since Muslims worship a version of the same hyperviolent middle eastern god it's clearly that all the things you hate about Islam originated in the bible before it was copied by the koran.

Craig Mark said...

What a load of codswallop!!

For a start, the Koran doesn't say that Islam and Muslims are the superiors of the world. It says that the world submit to God's rule (actually - the meaning of the word Islam is submission). The only way that Muslims are superior to anyone is in being submitted to God more than other people. The Koran actually says that there are some people amongst the Christians and Jews that are more deserving than some Muslims.

This goes hand in hand with the idea that all must submit to Islam. Effectively that is saying all must submit to submission to God. Chritians and Jews who submit their lives to God have already done this according to the Koran.

Jihad is NOT a holy war. It is a personal struggle to do what is right. This comes from a hadith where Mohammed said that ordinary everyday life was a greater jihad than fighting in a battle.

The Koran doesn't say that men are superior to women. It says that it is a man's duty to look after and protect women.

I could go on and on, but I suspect that the people who read this blog have already made up their minds, regardless of the facts.

It's true that there are many so-called Muslims that act in ways that are decidedly unislamic, but that is down to them and not to Islam.

I'll be very surprised if the blog author approves this comment for publication.

The Anti-Jihadist said...

Mr. Craig, I don't agree with jihadists, devout Muslims and dhimmis like you. But unlike them, I allow them to have their say. It's called 'Freedom of Speech'.

Unknown said...

BTW, not posting my comment shows how much of a coward you are.

If you are a not some six year old who cannot take an arguement against him.

Like that guy with 8 facebook friends who deletes every comment on his wall which critisizes him.
