Hans Calmeyer reflected the Judeo-Christian system of laws as it was under attack by the fascist Nazis who succeeded in turning a good system into their own form of tyranny. Today, and in fact for the last 1500 years, Islamists seek to make their tyrannical system the law of every land. While Jihad is perceived as a terrorist thread, it is actually the clash of civilizations and power over the systems of law that is at issue. Taking power while strictly enforcing an unyielding system of laws was a Nazi specialty. Calmeyer was able to work within the Nazi system because the basis was still the Judeo-Christian system of laws of Western Civilization. What could he have done within a newly imposed Sharia system? Absolutely NOTHING.
Can a Calmeyer of today work within the Sharia system to protect Jews, for example? Egypt is now massively under the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, not inclined to protect Jews or Christians there. If there is one potentially favorable country, it might be Turkey. The Turkish experience is actually not a good illustration either, since Turkey has been under a mix of Sharia and Western Law, militarily and democratically supported, until recently. With the rise of Erdogan to majority rule, the likelihood of increasing dominance of Sharia is clear, and we shall see how the country will treat non-Muslims from here. Where else do we have examples of Sharia Law treating non-Muslim religions fairly? Lebanon is now controlled by Syrian influence and Hizbullah. Indonesia now persecutes its Christian minority, as well as other non-Muslim religions.
The beginning of the extreme Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, and complete enmity between the leadership of Palestinians and the Jews, was DIRECTLY linked to Nazi support of an individual who goes down in history as one of the most evil personalities on record: Amin Al-Husseini, who was also at the root of Saddam Hussein’s dictatorship in Iraq. He was one who put himself in charge of the Arabs (initially against their will) who directly colluded with Hitler to murder all the Jews rather than expel them to Palestine, the homeland that had already been negotiated for many many years dating back to the decline of the Ottoman Empire. Al-Husseini was financed by the Nazis. Mein Kampf is essentially the German meaning of Jihad. Jihad in turn metastatized into the extreme forms of struggle between Islam and Western civilization, though of course the seeds of that enmity were sown in about 610 AD, long before Hitler and Al-Husseini.
The following is adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat:
Islam is not merely a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system [with military and legal power].
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a front for all the other components, and all the other components are integral to furthering the grip of the religion through intimidation, where all is permitted to gain followers, much like the Nazi system which however did not really pretend to be a religion. Nazism was however a cult, a cult of obeisance to the Fuehrer.
Islam works through conquest (see the Ottoman Empire, that was barely defeated and about to rise again), but also by simple infiltration over time, while cultures do not even realize they are being taken over. Democratic systems with religious tolerance, set up to reward increasing numbers within political groups and freedom of religion, play directly into Islam strategy: Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called religious rights.
When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to initially reasonable Muslim demands for their religious rights, they also get the other components under the table. It works this way: (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).
As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
United States - Muslim 1.0%
Australia - Muslim 1.5%
Canada - Muslim 1.9%
China - Muslim 1%-2%
Italy - Muslim 1.5%
Norway - Muslim 1.8%
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:
Denmark - Muslim 2%
Germany - Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom - Muslim 2.7%
Spain - Muslim 4%
Thailand - Muslim 4.6%
From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves along with threats for failure to comply. (United States ).
France - Muslim 8%
Philippines - Muslim 5%
Sweden - Muslim 5%
Switzerland - Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands - Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago - Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam - Mohammed cartoons).
Guyana -Muslim 10%
India - Muslim 13.4%
Israel - Muslim 16%
Kenya - Muslim 10%
Russia - Muslim 10-15%
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia - Muslim 32.8%
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:
Bosnia - Muslim 40%
Chad - Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon - Muslim 59.7%
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:
Albania - Muslim 70%
Malaysia - Muslim 60.4%
Qatar - Muslim 77.5%
Sudan - Muslim 70%
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:
Bangladesh - Muslim 83%
Egypt - Muslim 90%
Gaza - Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia - Muslim 86.1%
Iran - Muslim 98%
Iraq - Muslim 97%
Jordan - Muslim 92%
Morocco - Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan - Muslim 97%
Palestine - Muslim 99%
Syria - Muslim 90%
Tajikistan - Muslim 90%
Turkey - Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates - Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of Dar-es-Salaam “the Islamic House of Peace” assumed peace because everybody is a Muslim:
Afghanistan - Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia - Muslim 100%
Somalia - Muslim 100%
Yemen - Muslim 99.9%
Of course, peace does not follow. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons. And the cause of Jihad begins to go after the neighbors not yet “conquered.” The basic canon of Arab life is brother against brother; sons against father; family against cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and against the infidel. Ä“ Leon Uris: ėThe Haj”
In many countries, such as Sweden and France and the Netherlands, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate. They also can never be assimilated into the cultures and civilizations into which they may immigrate. If those cultures are their hated Jewish or Christian civilizations, then the Muslims remain enemies within, not subject to assimilation.
The clash of civilizations (and specifically legal systems) is proceeding. At one time Lebanon was primarily a Christian County. So was Ethiopia. Ethiopia is going the way of Lebanon and so is Nigeria.
Arab racism, Islamic bigotry (A.K.A. Arab-Israeli conflict) & Erdogan
Militant Islamic Bigotry & Erdogan
Ever since the Islamic party AKP in Turkey won the election , anti-Israel bigotry by Turkish president shows its true colors.
Clearly the ISLAMIC PARTY's elected Erdogan was looking for an opportunity to break the alliance.
The Flotilla incident, where Islamists (under the guise of "peace humanitarian activism")¬ prepared for matryrdom to kill Jews for Allah (as they screamed) or to die, so that the infidel Zionists look bad, a known Islamists' trick, just as Hamas & Hezbollah use civilians to cause their deaths) was a perfect chance for Erdogan, heck he can now even¬ claim that its for "poor palestinians" and come out a hero in the cruel Arab world, that always abuses/uses the Arab Palestinians as a ping-pong.. (ever since the Arab leaders told them to evacuate in 1948, thus created the "Palestinian refugees." During the years Arab nations always persecuted the Palestinian Arabs and made sure they won't advance, hence they can have it both ways, the hated Palestinian is down and the hated Zionist can be blamed FOR it.)
Sure (the one that seeks to wipe off the map an entire nation of 7,000,000, the one that claims¬ AS IF he¬ denies the Holocausat in order to prepare another one... or is it EichmannJihad?') Ahmedinejas's hands are all over the place (at: Hezbollah, Hamas and in Turkish political¬ Islamization) and Erdogan's defense of the Islamic Republic in the UN against sancions tells volume.
DUAL INTOLERANCE - MOTIVATION FOR THE CONFLICT
Yes, the anti Israel war of genocide or at least of ethnic cleansing (look at the example of Arab-Lebanese Helen Thomas racist ethnic cleansing view without taking into account that the main population of the Arab "Palestinians" is in Arab immigration into Palestine-Israel from: Syria, Egypt, S. Arabia, etc. 1800-1948), is motivated by both: ARAB RACISM & ISLAMIC BIGOTRY, both look at the Jews, as "outsiders," that's the real conflict. This was always the case, ever since the Nazi Arab-Islamic Mufti al-Husseini called (at the Hebron massacre 1929, almost 40 Years before¬ they could even come up with any¬ "1967-occupation" excuse) to "Kill the Jews wherever you find them."
Mufti's impacted (Egyptian born typica-fake-"Indigenous-palestinian") Y. Arafat was one of the main figures to incorporate ISLAM into the conflict, with taking Jerusalem as a MUSLIM issue, even though it's not even mentioned once in the Quran, the only connection Muslims CLAIM is that their prophet had some kind of a dream, in which he "visited" (somehow) the historic Jewish capital.
THE LOSS FOR TURKEY
There's no question --no matter where you stand on the conlfict-- that the moderation of a Muslim, Muslim regime can be measured first by attitude towards Israel, it's no secret, therefor, if Erdogan is on this path, the cloud is very dark, in Turkish population's future.
A LOSS FOR AMERICA

Shouts of 'Allahu Akbar' as Christians arrested
DEARBORN, MICHIGAN -(ANS)-Three Christians were arrested today at the Arab International Festival as they shared their faith with Muslims. The three were arrested by police as they engaged in intense, but respectful dialog in which they proclaimed their faith in Christ.
"I never thought I would see this in America," says Steven Atkins, a resident of Toronto, Canada, who was visiting the festival and observed the incident.
The three arrested include Dr. Nabeel Qureshi, David Woods, and Paul Rezkalla. Dr. Quereshi is co-director of Acts 17 Apologetics Ministries. He holds an MD from Eastern Virginia Medical School and an MA in Christian apologetics from Biola University.
"When Dr. Quereshi was arrested I heard people clapping and applauding, and some said 'Allahu Akbar,'" Atkins said. There was a crowd of 15-20 people watching the exchange and subsequent arrest.
The festival attracts several hundred thousand Arab Americans each year, and some Christian groups find it an ideal venue for Christian outreach.
This year, the city of Dearborn banned the distribution of Christian literature near the festival. Some accused the city of catering to its large Muslim population when the law was passed. On June 17, a three-judge panel from the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals granted an emergency motion on behalf of Pastor George Saieg, allowing him to distribute literature and talk about his faith to Muslims at the festival.
"It was an intense discussion, but it was not unruly," Atkins noted. "There was no threat of violence," he said. "It's becoming more restrictive here than in Canada."
