Mein Kampf and Modern Islam

Adolph Hitler wrote Mein Kampf in which he told the world everything he intended to do and no one listened. He said he would unite Europe under the NAZI banner. No one listened. He said he would cleanse the continent of all those people who were unworthy of life . No one listened. He said he would rid the world of international Jewry with a solution that was final. And again no one listened. Hitler and NAZI Germany nearly succeeded in carrying out every promise made in Mein Kampf.

Today, Hitler's Mein Kampf is second only to the Quran in sales in the Islamic world. The Islamic Mein Kampf promises much the same as the original. Uniting the world under the black banner of Muhammad, cleansing the world of infidels, and the elimination of all Jews. The above Islamic Main Kampf and the accompanying pamphlet produced through FrontPage Magazine and the Terrorism Awareness Project are excellent primers for those who know little of the history and valuable reminders of the basics for those who do know the history of modern Islamic terrorism.

Mark Daily: I Hate Bullies

Mark Daily wrote in a blog post the reasons he volunteered to fight this war. His best friend, to whom Mark entrusted his family, told the 1300 people at the memorial service this past Saturday the real reason Mark joined. It was simplicity itself, "I hate bullies." In an e-mail to a fellow soldier, Mark closed with, "Remember: You carry a new world in your heart." In his brief life, Mark Daily wrote alot, read alot, taught alot, and lived alot. "I'm having the time of my life," he would say.

The Black Hawk helicopter slowly circled the field. The pilot's voice barely audible over the thumping of the rotor blades, "Mark Daily! Mark Daily! Mission accomplished!" A twenty-one gun salute fired by seven men in dress uniform, the trumpeting of taps, the skirl of bagpipes playing "Amazing Grace", the flag covering the coffin folded and presented to the grieving widow on behalf of a grateful nation, posthumous awarding of the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. A good man was mourned and laid to rest. The struggle for freedom and liberty goes on. Life goes on.

I was there.
