-- Eugen Sorg writes:
Sixty years after his death, the mass-destroyer is more popular than ever.
In India he symbolizes resistance, in Egypt prosperity, in Peru discipline.
The Senegalese celebrate him as a hero of anti-colonialism and the Chinese
in Hong Kong as a champion of style.
Presumably, Hitler is the only European who, more than half a century after
his death, is still widely known around the world. Other contemporary
politicians, such as Churchill or de Gaulle, are merely remembered in the
respective linguistic or cultural spheres; the same goes for intellectual
heroes like Goethe, Kant, Cervantes, Shakespeare.
But only the mass-murderer Hitler is part of popular knowledge in Korea,
Japan, Namibia or Uruguay, even outside the academic islands.
Hitler, the German, is not only the most well-known European, but besides
the religious founders Mohammed, Jesus, Buddha or the slayers Genghis Khan
or Stalin perhaps one of the most well-known figures of all time.
These are the results of journalistic polls by five members of our newspaper
in the Southern parts of the world. For Europeans, who like to view their
continent as the cradle of the Enlightenment and humanism, it is a rather
embarrassing finding. And a disconcerting if not downright shocking one.
Because Hitler is viewed in a positive light by millions of non-Europeans.
However, if one listens closely, this disconcertment slightly wanes. Most of
the time, it is not the historical Hitler, the politician of hatred and
extermination that is celebrated or even wished to reappear, but a figure of
fantasy with few real attributes. Hitler has a cathartic function, in which
each culture projects their specific experiences, preferences and problems.
In the corrupt and chaotic economies of South America, Hitler is read as a
code for order and national unity. Africans, on the other hand, admire the
strong man in him, the myth of power, but also the enemy of the former
colonialists France and England. Also in India, from whose history Hitler
took his ideas of the Aryans and the Swastika, even though the subcontinent
does not know any antisemitic traditions, Hitler is transfigured into an
aide in the national liberation struggle against the British Crown. However,
in East Asia, Hitler is merely present as an aesthetical influence in
fashion collections, commercials and the restaurant business, uncoupled from
Nazi policies or World War II.
This is not the case in the Arabic and Iranian center of Islam. Not only is
Hitler celebrating a renaissance in the Middle East. Also the modern view of
Hitler is closest to the historical one. In contrast to the West, the
historical facts are evaluated differently. What is condemned as the most
abominable deed of Hitler: the attempted extermination of the Jews, is
judged as honorable politics by many in the Middle East. The only reproach:
Hitler did not finish the job.
-- Horst Mahler comments:
The Jews have already lost - they just don't know it yet. The publication of
the article by Eugen Sorg in the newspaper Weltwoche from Zurich is an
important act of rebellion. Now it is important to forge an ever-effective
weapon from it.
What is so important about this article? It documents the powerlessness of
the historical perspective forced on us by the Jews - even more: it freshens
our insight into the nature of Mephisto, that is explored in Goethe's FAUST:
FAUST (to Mephisto): All right, who are you?
MEPHISTOPHELES: A part of the force
that always wants evil but constantly creates good.
[Werke: Faust. Eine Tragödie, Goethe-HA Bd. 3, S. 47]
What are the aims of the Jews?
To make nations believe that Adolf Hitler was the greatest criminal of human
history - the devil.
What do they achieve?
That Adolf Hitler appears to nations - from all kinds of perspectives - as
the greatest hero that the 20th Century has seen.
All of humanity crazy - except the Jews?
The Jews have overlooked a minor fact: We can prove, through their own holy
books, that they worship the cruellest murderer as their most holy one -
because of his lust to kill. This lust makes the wheat of the Jews grow,
throughout the world. Yahweh is truly Satan, the destroyer of worlds (John
How can therefore the so-called (by the Jews) Holocaust be a reason for
nations, that suffer under the Jews, not to love Adolf Hitler?
Juda has finally been revealed as the wolf who ate chalk, rolled his paw in
dough and powdered it with flour. Finally one is allowed to laugh at him.
