App On Google Play Delivers Hitler’s Vile Messages To Arabic Speaking Audience

Update: The app is no longer avail­able as of Jan­u­ary 22.

A free appli­ca­tion pro­vid­ing users with vile quotes attrib­uted to Hitler has been installed by over 10,000 users in the last 30 days through Google Play, the app store for Android products.

The Arabic-language app, “Hitler’s Say­ings,” allows users to read and share what it describes as Hitler’s “beau­ti­ful say­ings that we could ben­e­fit from in our lives” via social media networks.

A descrip­tion of the app says, “Hitler com­bines the charisma of the skill­ful physi­cian and the grand juggler…Read in this appli­ca­tion all of Hitler’s say­ings and share them with your friends.”

Among the quotes made avail­able to users are:

  • “Jews are like the mos­qui­tos that suck our blood.”
  • “I dis­cov­ered that the Jews are behind every immoral­ity or crime against society.”
  • “I could have killed all the Jews in the world, but I spared some of them so you know why I killed the rest.”
  • “Oh Ger­mans defend your­selves and never buy any­thing from the Jews.”

Other quotes attrib­uted to Hitler include, “The needs of soci­ety super­sede the needs of the indi­vid­ual” and “I will not have mercy over the weak until they become strong, and when they become strong they will not deserve mercy.”

Hitler con­tin­ues to be a point of fas­ci­na­tion and exploita­tion by those who seek to pro­mote his mes­sages as inspi­ra­tion to audi­ences around the world.
