Lebanese People and their Love of Hitler

No this is not about Najwa Karam. This is about all those that agree with Najwa Karam and they are many.

If you drive around Achrafieh, odds are you will stumble on this building with a full blown swastika on one of its facades. Perhaps it’s new, perhaps it isn’t. But what’s consistent is that there are many, many Lebanese who idolize Hitler.

And I have no freaking idea why.

You only need for Germany to have a football game for your Facebook timeline to be inundated with Hitler-loving statuses about how Germany will win. An example of that:

“The pepperoni kids will dance to the sound of Hitler’s canons tonight” – this was a Facebook status posted by a friend of mine when Germany was playing Italy at the 2012 Euro cup semi-final.

But it’s not all about football games. There’s a guy in my hometown, whose name I don’t even know, who wears a golden swastika around his neck. Its value would be more than $1000 today. And there’s even a jewelry shop which sold it or had it custom-made for him.

Moreover, just yesterday, I observed a fascinating twitter conversation between a renowned Lebanese blogger and other tweeps after the blogger professed his admiration for the dictator. The argument? He’s just a warlord like all of our Lebanese warlords. If you like Geagea, Berri or Jumblat, you can’t but like Hitler.

Flawless arguments aside, this is only for showcasing. But enough with that, let me ask a few questions.

  • Do Lebanese people like Hitler just because he killed Jews? In which case, do they know that he killed many non-German Christians too?
  • Do Lebanese people know that they would also be classed on a list of people to eradicate had Hitler had his way?
  • Do Lebanese people who admire Hitler for his charisma (such as Najwa Karam) actually know anything about Hitler apart from Hollywood-related movies?
  • Do Lebanese people who love Hitler know that the Germans have nothing but hate towards him?

The sad part is that we can fathom idolizing a criminal who killed millions upon millions of people and who was a main player in a full-blown World War just because we think it’s cool. When “Mein Kampf” is banned in many European countries, all of which have much more freedom than we do, you should realize that thinking that the mind behind that book and ideology isn’t someone you should be proud of, let alone consider as an inspiration in any way whatsoever.

But hey, we’re a country that’s so messed up when it comes to so many issues that liking Hitler becomes irrelevant. But something must be said. Enough with the silliness.

  1. I found it funny when people idolize him bcz ”He killed Jews” but the Jews he killed were From Poland, Czech Republic,..Germany..etc. Harmless people, Jews not Israelis. Judaism is an Abrahamic religion, which supposed to be respected according to Qu’ran (the muslims i know admit this) and I don’t know if the Bible says so. I always hear people saying ” our problem is not with Judaism as a religion, it’s with the Israelis” People idolize Hitler, bcz simply, they haven’t read a book, their only reference to World War 2 is ”Saving private Ryan”. This is stupid, embarassing and disgusting.


  2. i know the minority know this but even if someone put a swastika as profile picture it doesnt mean that this person like hitler because it has nothing to do with him its arian, Hindu-European sign for the sun or peace dont remember exactly, so if someone put that sign dont relate that to hitler “heik deghreh”


    • When someone wears and swastika and turns his car into a German consulate at every football game, I won’t assume the swastika is for anything other than Nazism.

      THis applies to most people I’ve come across who use the symbol.


  3. Hitler is loved for the results of his pragmatism. There is no question of his being the most successful that ever lived. At this time the US is no more than a financially failing filth farm. Soon the phrase “ruling with an iron hand” will be palatable anew.


    • Burn in hell or rot in the ground, “Rusty,” you ignorant piece of shit. I know nothing awaits you, but if it does, I hope it’s painful. All murderers are mentally ill, but all the same, I’m glad you’re gone.

  10. First i’m a national socialist, not a nazi.
    Second i want to reply to the arguments that you posted in the blog,
    1-There was no holocaust, hitler never in his life said that he wanted to kill the jews,he only wanted them out of europe. And the lie that hitler killed christians is only a aliied propaganda, of course created by the jews.(PS:Watch on youtube a video titled:Christian German tried to save europe posted by a channel called [historytruths]
    2-I didn’t even understand teh argument.
    3-Oh i know 3/4 of hitler’s life and i never even watched SAVING PRIVATE RYAN.
    4-I know a lot of germans today hate hitler only because he was showed as a destroyer of germany and europe by the jews! And i heard a lot of germans as well saying F*ck you NAZIS, while it doesn’t make any sense because when they say that they are saying to their grandparents!
    I’m going to wait for a reply
