In the words of Erdogan , however, "Our minarets are our bayonets, our domes are our helmets, our mosques are our barracks". Islamic regimes are, in fact, offering to fill the empty spaces in Germany's religious landscape. Saudi Arabia proposed building 200 new mosques in Germany, "one for every 100 refugees".
After the war, laws were made in Germany and other countries, especially countries in Europe, that make it illegal to say the Holocaust never happened. Sometimes they also ban questioning the number of people affected by it, which is saying that not so many people were killed as most people think. There has been some controversy over whether this affects people's free speech . Certain countries, such as Germany, Austria , and France also ban the use of Nazi symbols to stop Nazis from using them.
The Treaty of Versailles contributed greatly to the alienation many Germans felt about their civilian, democratic government, and when these combined with the actions of the military, it provided a rich material for Hitler to use to gain the support of those on the right. The Treaty also triggered a process where the German economy was rebuilt based around US loans, in order to satisfy a key point of Versailles, which made the nation especially vulnerable when a depression came. Hitler used this too, but it’s important to stress these were just two elements in Hitler’s rise, which was a multi-faceted event.

Neo-Nazi philosophers have posited a spiritual, esoteric doctrine of race, which moves beyond the primarily Darwinian -inspired materialist scientific racism popular mainly in the Anglosphere during the 20th century. Figures influential in the development of neo-Nazi racism, such as Miguel Serrano and Julius Evola ,  claim that the Hyperborean ancestors of the Aryans were in the distant past, far higher beings than their current state, having suffered from "involution" due to mixing with the "Telluric" peoples; supposed creations of the Demiurge . Within this theory, if the "Aryans" are to return to the Golden Age of the distant past, they need to awaken the memory of the blood. An extraterrestrial origin of the Hyperboreans is often claimed. These theories draw influence from gnosticism and tantrism , building on from the work of the Ahnenerbe . Within this racist Manichaean theory, Jews are held up as the antithesis of nobility, purity and beauty.
