Did Adolf Hitlers Nazis kill any Muslim people during WW2?
I'm just curious, i know them monsters primarily finished off all J-ews, Gypsies etc... in the lands they captured. But what is not well known is that Europe especially in Eastern Europe had a large Muslim population from days of the Ottoman Empire.
So when the Nazis invaded Islamic parts of Bosnia, Albania and even the Russia's Muslim Caucasus regions e.g Azerbaijan surely the Waffen SS and Wehrmacht would have come across these Moslem people?
I mean how did the Nazis treat Muslims in the lands they captured? Surely they would have thought that Islam was also a foreign Semetic religion like Judaism?
My friend who's Bosnian said that the Nazis when they wanted to find J-ews they would pull down mens trousers and check for circumcision?
Is this true? So when they came across all these Moslems in Eastern Europe surely they would have thought "Ah Ja these are also J-ews" lets finish them off!
Is this what happened? Also were their any Black people in Europe during WW2? What happened to them if their were?
Lastly if the Nazis were around now and were capturing all of Europe, what do you think they would do to the massive amounts Turkish, Arabic, Pakistani and Arabian immigration in Western Europe?

Yes. You have to remeber the final solution and the persecution that led up to it was not just jews, but all MINORITY GROUPS. For example the aryan ones like communists, homoseuxuals, disabled people and some groups of christians and the non-aryan ones like jews, gypsies, blacks, and muslims who fell into the latter category. And to one of the previous people who said hitler never killed anyone because of their religion, what do you call judaism? Is that not a religion? Think before you answer.

What are J-ews? There is no harm in using the word Jew.
There were black people in Europe (there had been for centuries), some, like Senegalese troops fighting for France, were killed, rather than taken prisoner.
There are examples of Muslims fighting both on the Allies and Axis sides, for instance, Bosnian Muslims joining the Waffen SS and any number from India fighting for the British Empire.

one i being jewish and studying the Holocaust for about 6 years i can tell you the people did revolt look up the warsaw revolt the jews killed hundreds of nazis but after being imprisoned for several years they really did not have any strength and they didn't know they were walking to their death, sometimes in between stops on the train their would be a party and the nazis would say that the war is over and that they were all free then they would send some to the showers, some did know they were walking to their death but most didn't. but either way u couldn't take a hammer or baseball bat or even a nail into the camps. and if you did manage to sneak in something as insignificant as a nail, you weren't going to stab in into an eye of an ss soldier because their would be others around and instead of just sending you to your somewhat easy death they would torture you to death in public. plus the irgun did help people were parachuting in and out of germany for a very long time saving jews. their is even a story of a woman who escaped nazi occupied hungry and parachuted right back into hungry on a rescue mission, she was killed. the next time you ask a question accusing jews of just walking to their deaths, and letting their fellow jews just die you might want to do some research.

Hitler didn't hate Albanians he called them the Aryan of the illyrians. The only reason Neo- Nazi's are p***** is because Albanians helped Jewish people hide during the war. Albania is the only European country that had more Jewish people after WW2 then before.

Muslims weren't specifically targeted; there were even some Muslim Waffen SS units.
Muslims serving in Russian combat formations were no doubt killed in action, and a Muslim resistance group in occupied Yugoslavia, the Hazni Effendi, would doubtless have been executed if captured, but on the grounds they were partisans rather than because they were Muslims.
The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, a Palestine nationalist Arab on the run from the British, spent much of WW2 in exile in Berlin and had at least one meeting with Hitler where he offered to raise an Arab army to help the Axis forces in North Africa and the Middle East in return for the extermination of the Jews in the area.
So on the whole, Hitler was on good terms with Muslims in WW2.
There was a sizeable Black community in Berlin throughout the Nazi era which was on the whole left alone. They worked mainly in the vibrant Berlin nightclub industry as entertainers, and the Nazis preferred to leave them alive and working (many dancers often performed in tribal costumes) to provide a visual contrast between "savage" Africans and "civilized" Aryans for propaganda purposes. However, it should be pointed out that at least one Black German was publicly beaten to death by the police.
I think a Nazi regime conquering Europe in the early 21st century would be targeting Muslims rather than Jews, having used them as propaganda scapegoats for the ills of Europe's economy and society; the death camps would be for them nowadays.

Yes, it is totally true about the trousers thing. There were black people during WWII but just a few. They mostly tried to hide for Hitler troops. They would start invading Western Europe too.

Arabs hated Jews and found a brotherhood in Nazi Germany. It didn't matter anyway because Nazi's believed they where the master race anyway and would have little respect for Arabs other than they where willing to do the Nazi's bidding.

Muslims as a group were not targeted but if they belonged to a targeted category like Romani (Gypsies) or Black people they could be killed by the Nazis in the Holocaust

Considering back the pakistan and india were together and muslims lived there too Britain had control over them and used them in the war too most people think not but its true cause Blacks were discriminated against a lot so blacks were at the front of the wars as well because britain controlled them.
Oh and incase your wondering why arent they any records that was because Black people never had birth records cause it wasnt considered important then.

Jews where singled out , not because they where Jewish, but because of their historical economic traits. I.e extortion through interest banking, and the accusation that they bleed a country dry rather than contribute constructively. This view point was not just held by Hitler, but by European leaders going back centuries. If you look at the historical evidence, Jews where expelled no less than 1,000 times from European countries, for exactly the same reason Hitler opposed the Jews.
The Muslim population where not therefore targeted in the same way as Jews
