Australian PM Says ISIS Worse Than Nazis


Australian Prime Minister Tony AbbottAustralian Prime Minister Tony Abbott was slammed by Jewish groups today¬†after saying that ISIS militants in Iraq and Syria were worse than Nazis as they “boast about their evil.”

The Australian leader, who is considering extending Australia’s air campaign against ISIS in Iraq into Syria following a request by the United States, made the comments after describing the jihadi group’s actions as “unspeakable evil” and “medieval barbarity.”

“I mean, the Nazis did terrible evil but they had sufficient sense of shame to try to hide it. These people boast about their evil,” Abbott told Sydney commercial radio station 2GB.

“This is the extraordinary thing – they act in the way that medieval barbarians acted – only they broadcast it to the world with an effrontery which is hard to credit and it just adds a further dimension to this evil.”

His comments were criticized by the head of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry Robert Goot as “injudicious and unfortunate.”

Goot said in a statement that ISIS’ crimes were horrific but “cannot be compared to the systematic round-up of millions of people and their dispatch to purpose built death camps for mass murder.”

“Acts of terrorism are necessarily done in the full glare of publicity for their propaganda effect,” he added.

“In contrast, those responsible for ordering and implementing systematic state-sponsored genocide are high government officials who often operate in secret not out of any sense of shame, but to avoid being held criminally responsible for their actions.”

Abbott defended his remarks at a Melbourne press conference later and said he was “not in the business of trying to rank evil.”

“But I do make this point, that unlike previous evil-doers, whether we’re talking about Stalin, Hitler or whoever that tried to cover up their evil, this wretched death cult boasts about it,” he said.

“Every day we see new atrocities broadcast to the world, atrocities of an unspeakable inhumanity.

“And that’s why it’s absolutely vital that the decent people of the world unite against this death cult and do everything we reasonably can, as quickly as we can to disrupt, degrade and ultimately destroy [the group].”

  1. Prime Minister Abbott and Australia have been steadfast supporters of Israel and as such deserve the benefit of any doubt. He certainly isn’t minimizing the monstrous evil of the Nazis ym”s, he’s pointing out that ISIS doesn’t even have the sense of shame about their barbarity that the genocidal Nazis did.

  2. This is the issue. Issues with evil are so difficult, that there is no hate that can be compared and no honor that can be hurt on hate valued for pain.

    Choice says that the Nazis were infinitely evil. I would profess that the ISIS is the same in its infinite hate of society, values, honor and discretion.

    You can not compare one murderer with another. Their victims all see the one who murdered them as the perpetrator of all evil.

    But this is somewhat insightful. The idea that they are touting their evil and profess it is the way of any idea of a true society is in effect a very bad thing.

    Nazis were criminals. ISIS is barbarians. Or its the same for both.

    They are all criminals. They are all murderers. They must all be removed from the standing of a good future for humanity.

    Thus forgive the prime minister, but never forget the wickedness that continues to evolve in our world at the crime against innocence that is committed on a daily basis.

    Our future is to never forget.
