Hitlerís Koran

Paul Cella sends this passage from Winston Churchillís The Gathering Storm, p. 55:

Hitlerís sentence was reduced from four years to thirteen months. These months in the Landsberg fortress were, however, sufficient to enable him to complete in outline Mein Kampf, a treatise on his political philosophy inscribed to the dead of the recent Putsch. When eventually he came to power, there was no book which deserved more careful study from the rulers, political and military, of the Allied Powers. All was thereóthe programme of German resurrection; the technique of party propaganda; the plan for combating Marxism; the concept of a National-Socialist State; the right position of Germany at the summit of the world. Here was the new Koran of faith and war: turgid, verbose, shapeless, but pregnant with its message.

Mr. Cella comments: ďThat last sentence in particular struck me. Mein Kampf as the new Koran of faith and war: Let the neocon Churchill-worshippers meditate on that!Ē
