Former Hitler Youth Officer on Radical Islam

For the few among you out there that don't understand the use of the terms, "Islamofascism" or "Islamonazis," here's an interesting video in which a former Hitler Youth Officer talks about radical Islam compared to Nazism:

The renowned British historian Lord Acton once said:

"All utopias are murderous"
One could perhaps change the famous saying to;
"All radical, apocalyptic, universalist utopias are genocidal"

The past hundred years or so has seen three mass movements aiming at utopias that could only be achieved by world conquest: National Socialism, Communism, and now radical Islamism.

There are vast differences between them, to be sure, but there are also some interesting parallels. All three developed (quasi-) religious ideologies with sacred texts that were literally interpreted. National Socialist (Nazi) ideology was believed in "religiously" by very large numbers of people, and action was guided by its literal interpretation. Marxist-Leninism was undoubtedly a "religious" belief system, with sacred texts. So is totalitarian Islamism.

All three aspired, or aspire, to rule over the entire world, promising a utopia and an apocalyptic end to history. All three were, or are, genocidal.
