    Post Napoleon Bonaparte was a serious admirer of Islam

    Born on the 15th of August 1769, Napoléon Bonaparte
    was able to shape modern European history with his
    military innovations and war tactics that enabled him
    to lead several successful campaigns against the First
    and Second Coalition.

    The French leader, who died in May 1821, was a general
    during the French Revolution, the ruler of France as
    First Consul of the French Republic, Emperor of the
    French, King of Italy, Mediator of the Swiss
    Confederation and Protector of the Confederation of
    the Rhine. His campaigns are studied at military
    academies all over the world and he is widely regarded
    as one of history's greatest commanders.

    Regardless of whether he was a fair leader or not, one
    of the most impressive aspects regarding Napoléon
    Bonaparte was his admiration of Islam. Bonaparte first
    learnt about Islam in 1789, when he proposed a
    military expedition to seize Egypt then a province of
    the Ottoman Empire in order to protect French trade
    interests and undermine Britain's access to India.

    It has been reported that while in Egypt, Bonaparte
    took part in several religious ceremonies and held
    meetings with Muslim clerics. Many quotes suggest
    that Bonaparte was a serious admirer of Islam:

    "Moses has revealed the existence of God to his
    nation. Jesus Christ to the Roman world, Muhammad
    (PBUH) to the old continent,”

    "I hope the time is not far off when I shall be able
    to unite all the wise and educated men of all the
    countries and establish a uniform regime based on the
    principles of Qur'an which alone are true and which
    alone can lead men to happiness,” Napoléon Bonaparte
    as quoted in Christian Cherfils, ‘Bonaparte et Islam,’
    Pedone Ed., Paris, France, 1914, pp. 105, 125.

    Many historians discussed Bonaparte’s admiration of
    Islam, while others debated whether he converted to
    Islam or not.

    ‘Satanic Voices - Ancient and Modern’ by David M.
    Pidcock stated that the then official French
    Newspaper, Le Moniteur, carried the accounts of
    Bonaparte’s conversion to Islam in 1798 C.E. The
    newspaper even mentioned his new Muslim name, which
    was ‘Aly (Ali) Napoléon Bonaparte’.

    It has also been reported that Bonaparte commended the
    conversion of his General Jacques Menou, whose Muslim
    name was ‘Abdullah-Jacques Menou’, who later married
    an Egyptian, Sitti Zoubeida - who was descended from
    the line of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).

    Even if such claims are untrue, it’s clear that
    Napoleon Bonaparte admired the Islamic (Shari'ah) Law
    and attempted to apply it in his Empire.

    It’s interesting that a great leader like Bonaparte
    admired Islam and its laws, which are much better than
    the secular laws applied in many countries today. In
    fact, some aspects of the Shariah law still exist in
    the French constitution as the basis for some of their
    laws taken from the Code Napoléon.

    A well-known case like the fatal car accident of
    Diana, Princess of Wales, and Dodi al-Fayed can best
    illustrate this. "The photographers were charged with
    an old part of the French Jurisprudence, for ‘not
    helping at the scene of an accident’- which is taken
    from the Shari'ah Law of Imam Malik."

    Re: Napoleon Bonaparte was a serious admirer of Islam

    So did Adolf Hitler, a man comparable with Bonaparte in egotism and ambition: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Adolf_HitlerIt is deplorable that the Bible should have been translated into German, and that the whole of the German Folk should have thus become exposed to the whole of this Jewish mumbo jumbo… As a sane German, one is flabbergasted to think that German human beings could have let themselves be brought to such a pass by Jewish filth and priestly twaddle, that they were little different from the howling dervish of the Turks and the negroes, at whom we laugh so scornfully. It angers one to think that, while in other parts of the globe religious teaching like that of Confucius, Buddha and Mohammed offers an undeniably broad basis for the religious-minded, Germans should have been duped by a theological exposition devoid of all honest depth.

    Had Charles Martel not been victorious at Poitiers—already you see the world had already fallen into the hands of the Jews, so gutless a thing Christianity!—then we should in all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glorifies the heroism and which opens up the seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world. Christianity alone prevented them from doing so.

    You see, its been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?
