In Brazil, the use of the swastika is punishable up to five years in prison. So why is the use of the Islamic crescent moon and star not equally punishable?
Nazi leader Adolf Hitler copied the swastika symbol from Hinduism and associated it with Nazism in Europe, the socialist and fascist ideology that calls for the extermination of non-Germanics. The symbol was meant to represent the German race. As a result, together with Nazism, the swastika has been outlawed in numerous countries after the Second World War.
Even in Germany, the use of the swastika is outlawed, except for educational or religious purposes. However, the use of the crescent moon and star, which was popularized by the fascist and terrorist predecessor of the Nazis, the Ottoman Empire, is allowed throughout the world.
Like the swastika, the crescent moon and star has been copied from other religions. It was not originally a symbol of Islam. Islam didn't have any symbol to represent itself; usually, the color green or swords (like on the flag of Saudi-Arabia) were used to represent Islam - mainly in war.
According to a legend, the Turkish equivalent of Adolf Hitler, Osman I (founder of the Ottoman Empire) had a dream in which the crescent moon stretched from one end of the Earth to another. In light of that, he chose the crescent moon and star as the symbol of the Ottoman Empire. As with anything Islamic, that legend is of course false as the flag of the city of Byzantium featured a crescent moon and star hundreds and hundreds of years even before the terrorist and pedophile founder of Islam, Mohamed, was born.
In any case, the crescent moon and star became the symbol of the Ottoman Empire and exactly as with Nazism, throughout years and years of terrorism (hundreds in case of the Ottoman Empire) across Asia, Europe and even Africa, the violent spread of the Ottoman Empire popularized the use of terrorism as instructed by Islam. As a result, the crescent moon and star got in use to represent Islam.
Liberals may point out the cross or whatever symbols are used by Christians and mention the crusades or any other war or violent campaign that was carried out in the name of Christianity. Fact is, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc, don't instruct its followers to commit terrorism. Islam does. Islam was and still is spread by wars, squatting and terrorism as instructed by Islam. That's how it got its symbol, followers and everything else. Islam states: "the non-Muslims are your inveterate foes.", Koran: 4:101. There is no such discrimination to be found in either the Bible, Torah or the Vedas.
Islam was founded in support of Arab imperialism, much like Nazism was founded in support of Germanic imperialism. The similarities between these two fascist ideologies are breathtaking.
Islam, in particular the Ottoman Empire, goes hand in hand with Nazism. Both share the goal to exterminate everybody in disagreement with them, in particular Jews. Together Muslims and Nazis have formed (Bosnian) armies against Serbians in the 1940s, as an example. The Nazis tried to conquer Europe, they failed. The Muslims tried to conquer North Africa, they succeeded. Both ideologies instruct the use of terrorism to advance. But there are also even present day connections between the two ideologies.
In the Islamic country of Tajikistan, Tajik historians claim that Tajiks are of Aryan origin, like the Germans and as a result, the authorities in Tajikistan's capital, Dushanbe, have adopted the swastika as the national emblem, like the Nazis did.
Of course, the use of the swastika or Hitler's Mein Kampf book, should not be banned if freedoms are taken into consideration, excluding Nazism obviously. But if one thing gets banned because of its connections or encouragement of terrorism, then why not ban everything that does so as well?
In 2007, Dutch politician Geert Wilders called for a ban on the Koran, much like there is a ban on Hitler's Mein Kampf book, in several countries. Hitler's Mein Kampf is banned in several countries, so why is the much more violent Koran (Islam's holy book) not banned?
Germans are no longer allowed to wave flags around that feature the swastika but the Turks are allowed to wave their Ottoman Empire descended flag everywhere and much as they want, even in Germany.
Either the double standard should end or the Koran, Islam and the crescent symbol should all be banned and rightfully despised as anything Nazism is by the majority of the people. Not all Nazis may have been "violent", in the same way not all Muslims may be "violent"; it's ultimately their religion that they follow that matters. If the Allies didn't strike back at the Nazis and defeated them during the Second World War, Europe would now be ruled by fascists. Swastikas would be everywhere, much like mosques are now everywhere in some parts of Europe.
Islam is not only a religion (Nazism was not only a political ideology as well) but a theocratic fascist political ideology. It's not a religion like Judaism or Christianity. These religions are founded for the purpose of worshiping a God. Their calendars begin when they were founded. Not in case of Islam, the Islamic calendar begins when the first Islamic state was founded. Islam is not a race, nationality or anything like that. It's a purely political ideology that hides behind its religious side. It's in the same league as the Ku Klux Klan, Nazism and the Black Panther Party but it's not treated as such.
By the way, the Islamic crescent moon and star don't make any sense from an astronomical view either. It's impossible for a star to be viewable from the angle where it is featured on the Islamic symbol.
