Members of the 13. Waffen Gebirgs Division der SS Handschar (kroatische Nr 1) at prayer during their training at Neuhammer Training Grounds in November 1943. The Muslim troops were unique within Waffen-SS in being permitted to have their own religious teachers (imams) serving with them. Waffen-SS troops were not forbidden to hold religious views, but the officially approaved status was “Gottglaubige” or “believer in God”, as opposed to declared membership of a specific faith.
The Liberal State believes in nothing, not even in itself. It stands by with folded arms before experiments of every description, including even those aimed at the destruction of the State itself. It is satisfied if everything develops in accordance with certain regulation forms of procedure. Could anything more foolish be imagined? A State in whose eyes nothing is true elevates to the position of an absolute and unchangeable truth this attitude of doubt, and this alone. It makes a dogma of antidogmatism. Hence the Liberals are prepared .to let themselves be killed for maintaining that no idea is worth men’s while to kill each other for.
