It’s what we in the Counterjihad have known all along!
I take exception to the label of ”right-wing” in this context, but the basic premise of the German historian is sound, that sharia is an extremist totalitarian threat. That Islamic ideology has more in common with traditional socialist strong arm values, then it ever will with classic liberalism. The conventional right-left political spectrum does not accurately define these ideologies.
Marxism was a ”conservative” (classical sense, pre-dating the industrial revolution) reactionary movement, that was founded to oppose up-start capitalism. Many of the ruling aristocracy at the time, sympathized with Marxist theory, sharing a loathing for both the free market and it’s supporters.
NOTE: If it’s totalitarian, it’s left-wing (present), regardless of whether there are religious elements involved.
Historian Egon Flaig: Sharia is the most dangerous right-wing extremism in the world
Many thanks for the translation by Hermes:
Münich. The ancient historian Egon Flaig has argued against the declarations coming from officials of muslim groups that Islam belongs to the history of Europe. In a comment made for the news magazine Focus, Flaig disagreed amongst others with the representatives of Kenan Kolat, a turkish community in Germany. According to the professor teaching at the University of Rostock, associations with special interests could be maintaining a cultural rememberance devoid of real historical basis. The real basis would be that the penetration of theocracy into politics in the islamic world left not even the smallest place for the kind of republican communities characterizing Europe. “Where have there been self-governing citizenry under islamic rule? Where have there been decreeing people’s assembly or parliaments? We find nowhere regular elections, referendums, national constitutions, or a town hall” Flaig writes in “Focus”
“Nowadays there are islamic movements who do not follow sharia, and there is the powerful sharia-complying islam. The difference is fundamental for the chances regarding democracy and human rights. Just as nationalsocialism divided people into superior and inferior men following racist parameters, so has sharia developed a religious apartheid-system. The long-term goal of sharia is to spread this system to the entire world. The sharia-complying Islam can surely be called islamofascism, and the most dangerous right wing radicalism in the world”, Flaig says. This islam has never belonged to Europe. In fact, the european culture was in the position of being able to thrive because it held steady for more than 1000 years against the continuous attacks of the muslim sultanate and the emirate. Only an islam complying with the constitution could be a part of our country.
