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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

"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?
