Editor's note: Hilmar von Campe wrote the following comments in July 2004 – "long before anybody had heard the name of Obama," as the writer explains. His thoughts are still relevant, perhaps more so, today. Von Campe is the author of "Defeating the Totalitarian Lie: A Former Hitler Youth Warns America"
There is a great deal of confusion regarding the nature of the Nazi movement. Most if not all people who are familiar with the events of those years agree that its leaders were criminals. But quite a number of them, especially in the media, call Nazis fascists. Even though the bloody years of Nazi rule ended 64 years ago, the definition of who they were is of great importance for today. Without it we would be blind to reality.
As a German World War II veteran who grew up under the Nazis and who has studied about everything that has anything to do with their ideology, it is not difficult to define their reality. One principle theme of my 280 radio and television interviews in America has always been the comparison of the moral and ideological basis of the German Nazi society of that time and the American society of today. That theme also enters my books and articles.
Nazi society was based on lies, and lies are in the process of taking over America. I try to clarify for the American people that the ideological attack on America is part of the global attempt to eliminate God everywhere, replace Him with arbitrary rule of (leftist) man and destroy freedom. Godlessness brought Germany down. Godlessness is America's and freedom's No. 1 enemy.
Nazi is an abbreviation for National Socialist. Nazis are Socialists. That means they are radical left-wing. Fascists, on the other hand, have to be placed on the right. To put the label of fascism on National Socialism is an invention by the Soviet and East-German Communist leaderships after the war. It is meant to eliminate in the public mind the embarrassing link between the Nazi movement and socialism and hide the deadly threat to free society. After they had launched their antifascist movement, they made the label of fascism stick with the help of leftist media around the world. They also invented the word Nazism, a ridiculous word creation also used in the U.S., for the same reason: to replace the correct definition National Socialism.

The implication of what I am saying is far-reaching. Fascism, an authoritarian form of government with ugly features, is not an international conspiracy and a global threat to the United States. Global socialism, however, is. There are innumerably different socialist parties and movements. They are all fruits of the same rotten tree and lead inevitably to a totalitarian system. All socialist functionaries use national concepts and language in their different countries, but you can't argue rationally with them because they have a hidden purpose, which is different from the purpose of their non-socialist opponents. They are committed to transforming the world into a socialist system with them at the top. They are in America, and they are no patriots; they are traitors to their country, to the words and spirit of the Constitution, and to the mission of freedom, given by our Creator to this nation at her birth. The "politically correct" is the American equivalent of the "party line" of the Nazis and the Communists.
Bob Just described his own party as the "Party of Treason." "Hatred and corruption," he writes in Whistleblower magazine, "are on the march in America as they have never been before, and leading this march is the Democratic Party." And the United Nations, I add. Just points out that there seems to be a loyalty to "something other than the American people" and refers very often to the Nazis. "If I am right about the fanatical direction my party is taking, then America has never faced a danger like this, and real Democrats who stand by and watch will be as guilty before history as the actual leaders of this corruption movement. … Carried to its extreme, this corruption movement will destroy us all." Not many people understand that totalitarian socialism grows out of moral corruption.
Liberals in reality are socialists; they are not true Americans as far as I am concerned. They may not necessarily be a conscious part of the conspiracy, but they are part of the conspirators' immorality, their concepts and lust for power, which are expressions of hard-core socialism. But the appeaser of treason is no better than the traitor – both are liars who covet other people's money and property and sponsor all and every immoral cause hostile to our Creator.

Arabs and Israelis nowadays are both saying the same thing: "What is the matter with you people? You are going to walk away and you think your interests are going to be protected here?"
One of the things that has changed in this administration is that people who are fighting for democracy in places such as Turkey, Russia or China do not feel as if they have any moral or political support coming from Washington in a way that they have over the years.
Is this foreign policy reversible? My answer is yes for a number of reasons.
There was recently a remarkable article in the New York Times, based on an interview with the National Security Adviser, Susan Rice. In it, she described what the Times called the "new, modest U.S. policy in the Middle East." Susan Rice said we have three goals in the Middle East:
Negotiations with Iran over its nuclear weapons program.
Negotiations with Syria over its chemical weapons program and over the war taking place in Syria.
Negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians over Middle East peace.
What is striking is that it really is the foreign policy of Belgium: negotiations, negotiations, negotiations.
The foreign policy of the United States is, apparently, now to be centered in the United Nations, Brussels and Geneva, where we have talks about Syria with the Russians and talks about Iran with Iran's representatives.
What is missing in this formulation? In one word: power.
The president seems to regard power and the use of power pretty much the way he regards, for example, sexism -- as if this is a problem we had in the past; in past decades we had to deal with this phenomenon, but we have overcome it. As if this is the great thing about the United States: that we have gotten beyond an old‑fashioned concept such as the use of power.
Once upon a time we would have said that the center of American policy in the Middle East is actually not Geneva or Brussels or the United Nations, it is the Fifth Fleet in the Gulf and the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean. Once upon a time, the rules for the Middle East were actually enforced by the United States.
I find when I talk to Arabs and Israelis nowadays, they are both saying the same thing: "What is the matter with you people? Don't you understand we have counted on you since the Second World War; you have essentially kept the peace here, you have been, as the British would say, 'the top country' in the Middle East since the Second World War, or at least since the British withdrew from Aden. You are going to walk away from that and you think your interests are going to be protected here?"
Who said that? We can go down a long list of people. Was it the King of Jordan, was it Prince Saud of Saudi Arabia? Was it Binyamin Netanyahu? Was it the Emirates, was it the Lebanese Christians, was it the Moroccans?
The answer is: all of the above because, in private, they are saying the same thing. This is the only thing President Obama has actually achieved in the Middle East: He has brought the Israelis and the Gulf Arabs together.
In the world, and the international political system, we -- and certainly they in the Middle East -- are faced with the Hobbesian situation of a "war of all against all" except for one thing -- the United States. It used to be that the United States was what prevented that situation from exploding in ways that hurt both all of them and the West as well.
Saddam Hussein, for example, invaded Kuwait; it was the United States that said, No, we are not having countries swallowing each other up. So we reversed that attempt by sending 500,000 troops -- parenthetically a feat that we could no longer achieve because of the downsizing in the military -- but we enforced that rule.
When the Iranians started building a nuclear weapons program, it was the United States that said -- three presidents have said -- "You are not permitted to do that." There was at least someone saying, "No, this is not a Hobbesian 'war of all against all': there are certain rules here that everyone will live by, and we, the United States, will enforce them."

The Exploit Database (EDB) – an ultimate archive of exploits and vulnerable software. A great resource for penetration testers, vulnerability researchers, and security addicts alike. Our aim is to collect exploits from submittals and mailing lists and concentrate them in one, easy to navigate database.
Critics say the project's underlying objective is to convert non-Muslim children to Islam by bringing proselytizing messages into public schools under the guise of promoting multiculturalism and fighting "Islamophobia."
The group recently ran an advertisement promising to pay 250 Czech korunas ($13 dollars) to any student aged 15 to 18 years who would attend a two hour presentation about Islam.
More recently, Muslims in the Czech Republic have tried to ban a book they say is Islamophobic, and have filed a ten-page criminal complaint against its formerly-Muslim author.
The Czech government has approved a new project aimed at promoting Islam in public elementary and secondary schools across the country.
The project—Muslims in the Eyes of Czech Schoolchildren—is being spearheaded by a Muslim advocacy group and is being financed by American taxpayers through a grant from the US Embassy in Prague. (The US State Department is also promoting Islam in other European countries.)
The group says the Czech Ministry of Education has authorized it to organize lectures and seminars aimed at "teaching Czech schoolchildren about Islamic beliefs and practices" and at "fighting stereotypes and prejudices about Muslims."
But critics—there are many—say the project's underlying objective is to convert non-Muslim children to Islam by bringing proselytizing messages into public schools under the guise of promoting multiculturalism and fighting "Islamophobia."
