Hezbollah Youth

While the story is troubling, the picture itself gives me shudders.

Hezbollah's Mahdi Scouts look like a reincarnation of Germany's Hitler's Youth from the pre-World War II era. The training of Mahdi Scouts for Islamo-fascist hegemony replicates the Nazi regimen of creating "
Ayran supermen" who were prepared as leaders for the "Thousand Year Reich" during the Nazi era.

The Times notes that Hezbollah's "Mahdi Scouts have a reputation of being a feeder for Hezbollah's armed wing."

In World War II, crack troops comprised of Hitler Youth cadres fought with "ferocity" against British and Canadian forces during the Allied invasion of Normandy
.

Here's this from
the Times article:

Hezbollah’s influence on Lebanese youth is very difficult to quantify because of the party’s extreme secrecy and the general absence of reliable statistics in the country. It is clear that the Shiite religious schools, in which Hezbollah exercises a dominant influence, have grown over the past two decades from a mere handful into a major national network. Other, less visible avenues may be equally important, like the growing number of clerics associated with the movement.

Hezbollah and its allies have also adapted and expanded religious rituals involving children, starting at ever-earlier ages. Women, who play a more prominent role in Hezbollah than they do in most other radical Islamic groups, are especially important in creating what is often called “the jihad atmosphere” among children.

are we to forget the lessons of the past and end up with another world war? i see no other future unless it be a future of submission.

Donald Douglas said...

We have to fight it, Griper, and that starts with being aware.

Philippe Ohlund said...

I know what it is about, Donald.

I am so ashamed.

Donald Douglas said...

Don't be ashamed, Philippe. Be aware of the rising threats to Western civilization.

Philippe Ohlund said...

Thank you, Donald!

You are a very gentle and nice person.

Most persons commenting on your blog are also in fact very nice.

I was not always nice, but I was rather a very disgusting and unworthy person 30 years ago.

And I got it so very very wrong in the mid-seventies.

I wore a nazi uniform, when I went to high-school, with a swastika on my arm and all - and to my parents' horror.

At the high school election, my slogan was not "Change", like the one Obama had.

But my slogan was "6 millions more", referring to the Jewish people.

I wrongly believed the Jews were the evil of the world, and therefore must be exterminated.

I got almost 60 percent of the votes...

No one needs to convince me that evil exists. I know it does. I only have to take a look at myself.

No surprise, the Syrian and Iraqi Baath political entities were modeled after the Nazis. Syria probably still gives sanctuary to some old Nazi war criminals. During WWII the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was a big ally of Hitler and helped
raise a large number of Muslim soldiers to help the Nazi cause. I think they were called the Hanjar.
I grieve for the loss of a beautiful country: Lebanon.

Norm said...

Philippe,
The fact that you were eventually able to see how wrong you were, and
change for the better is a great sign. Be proud of the person that you have become and help others to see that hatred is wrong.

Philippe Ohlund said...

Thank you, Norm!

Philippe Ohlund said...

I remember a vote we had at a closed meeting.

The question was if Jews in principle should be tortured before being killed, or only be killed, without first being tortured (I never physically killed or hurt any Jewish person).

I was against torture, and won the majority with a narrow 53 to 47 percent.

What is wrong with us humans?

How can we become so debased that we even have these discussions and meetings we had?

I hate myself, and there must be a God, otherwise there is no human dignity left or any reason for any life.

How can it be easier to distribute copies of Mein Kampf in the subway, than copies of the Bible?

Yeh, god forbid, the rest of the world turns the tides on "western civilization" eh? Its about time that marginalized peoples fight for their rights and refuse to live under the global hegemony of the "western civilization".

Its not so much a "threat to the western world", but a threat on the global dominance of the western civilization.

Donald Douglas said...

Philippe: I'm glad you no longer think that way. I try to be a good person, but we all have our faults, as you know.

Thanks for sharing.

Donald Douglas said...

Thanks Norm: In fact, I do know that history, of the Baath parties of the Middle East.

Philippe Ohlund said...

Thanks, Donald!

I have really changed.

But I am aware of my faults and prejudices.

I believe God has the capacity to punish us when we are evil, and that He also is a rewarder of good works.

I understand the power of God, and this sustains both my love and my fear of God.

Thanks, Grace Explosion!

I highly appreciate your comforting words.

You look great on the picture by the way, and I look forward to read future posts on your blog "Grace Explosion".

Donald, who I hold in my highest esteem, is really surrendered with the most wonderful people.

You all belong in the American administration!

Today, we have snow here in Belgium, and the garden is beautiful with it, but I am sure it will all be gone in a couple of hours.

But when I move back to Sweden, after nine years here in Belgium I will see more of the snow. :-)

I believe we on this Planet are chosen and that there is enormous suffering all around the Universe.

There are millions of worlds and Planets out there, with creatures who need us, waiting for us, compare with Mark 16:15.

First we have to fix things on our planet, so that we get rid of poverty, suffering, and wars.

I believe we only can achieve this, when Israel becomes the Superpower, and Christ rules from Jerusalem.

When we soon have achieved bliss on Earth and eternal life, we must immediately start with the most grandios project ever: and that is to bring the whole Universe to Christ.

"I believe we only can achieve this, when Israel becomes the Superpower, and Christ rules from Jerusalem."

haha, I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this notion Phillippe. Your assertion is truly laughable in consideration to Israel's relationships with its closest neighbours.

Here's a good example of Israel handing out cookies to its neighbours.

How do you people live with yourselves and justify these attrocities?

Is it narcissism or dellusion?
