Adolph Hitler: "You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion [Islam] too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?"
It's an interesting quote when you consider the lengths to which the present German government has gone to import Islam and prevent public criticism of it. Could Merkel be trying to "correct" the "flaw" in German culture that Hitler observed?
