Mugabe compares himself to Hitler
No doubt assuming that world attention is elsewhere, Zimbabwe’s president Robert Mugabe has decided to go all the way to dictature. At a recent state funeral for one of his ministers, he is reported to have said:
I am still the Hitler of the time. This Hitler has only one objective, justice for his own people, sovereignty for his people, recognition of the independence of his people, and their right to their resources. If that is Hitler, then let me be a Hitler tenfold. Ten times, that is what we stand for.
Shortly afterwards, his armed forces started a violent attack on the opposition in revenge of the opposition-arrenged general strike last week, leaving more than 250 people injured. There are also reports of torture of political prisoners.
While some western nations, in particular the UK and more recently the US, have imposed sanctions against Zimbabwe’s government, some other countries, most notably France, are working to undermine these. [Secular Blasphemy]
Zou Bush nu ook Zimbabwe binnenvallen?
