Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

I am just here to remind you that it was thanks to Germany supplying weapons to the Turks that the Turks were able to carry out the extermination of Armenians starting in 1915. And... it's Germany once again supplying the Turks weapons as Turkey wages, once again, wars and genocide.

I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not, but Islam is an occasionalist religion, i.e., everything, including death, can only come from God. Like this from the Greeks:

In ancient Greek religion and mythology, the Moirai (/ˈmɔɪraɪ, -riː/, also spelled Moirae or Mœræ; Ancient Greek: Μοῖραι, "lots, destinies, apportioners"), often known in English as the Fates (Latin: Fata), were the incarnations of destiny; their Roman equivalent was the Parcae (euphemistically the "sparing ones"), and there are other equivalents in cultures that descend from the Proto-Indo-European culture. Their number became fixed at three: Clotho ("spinner"), Lachesis ("allotter") and Atropos ("the unturnable", a metaphor for death).

They controlled the mother thread of life of every mortal from birth to death. They were independent, at the helm of necessity, directed fate, and watched that the fate assigned to every being by eternal laws might take its course without obstruction.


In addition, Hinduism is also an occasionalist religion. This from the Bhagavad Gita:

"I am come as Time, the waster of the peoples,
Ready for that hour that ripens to their ruin.
All these hosts must die; strike, stay your hand—no matter.

Therefore, strike. Win kingdom, wealth, and glory.
Arjuna, arise, O ambidextrous bowman.
Seem to slay. By me these men are slain already.

You but smite the dead."

That's about 3 billion occasionalists in the world. (Some Jews and Christians might also be occasionalist).

So that means the total number of deaths caused by both the Germans and the Turks is exactly zero.

As an aside, lest I be accused of being a "selective occasionalist", the total number of Palestinian deaths caused by Israel is also zero. Not to mention those 500,000 Iraqi children who died from US sanctions. That too was from God.

Next, they'll be saying there's a virus rampaging around the world causing death.
