Is that a bad thing? Those issues do not belong in the same debate. The Palestinians had nothing to do with the persecution of Jews during World War 2.

That's not at all accurate. They had much to do with Jewish persecution during that period.


The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism: Adolf Hitler and Haj Amin al-Husseini by Chuck Morse

Book Review by Gary Selikow

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For those, like myself, who are sick and tired of the hate-filled international campaign to destroy Israel, and annihilate her people, this informative and fascinating book provides an exploration of the roots of Palestinianism and anti-Israel hatred. It outlines how the ongoing genocide against the Jews of Israel is in fact a continuation of the Nazi Holocaust against the Jews of Europe.

Chuck Morse traces the story of Haj amin al-Husseini, the founder of the Palestinian Movement, ally and friend of Adolf Hitler, and a key player in the Holocaust Against the Jews. Al-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem, was a vicious enemy of the Jewish people, in the tradition of Amalek, Haman, Torquemada, Chmielniki, and of course Hitler. His legacy continues today in the PLO, Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, PFLP, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hizbullah, al Qaida, and the regimes of Syria, Libya and Iran, as well as the supporters of the genocidal hate campaign against Israel on the International Left, and some on the Far Right (like Pat Buchanan and David Duke).

Sixty years after the Nazi Holocaust, anti-Jewish hatred reached another climax at the hideous anti-Israel hate fest - the United Nations Conference on Racism in Durban, South Africa. There the Left demonstrated their common cause with Radical Islam by embracing hateful anti-Zionist propaganda, and feverishly supporting the genocidal program against Israel. This evil festival of terror and hate in Durban 2001 was the lowest point in human history since the Nazi Holocaust.

Haj Amin al-Husseini was born in Jerusalem in 1895, and fought in the Ottoman Turkish Army against the British during the First World War. In 1919, he established a secret Muslim Youth Group, al-Nadi al-Arabi, which organized violence against the British, the Jews of Palestine, and moderate Muslims. In March 1920, he instigated attacks against innocent Jews praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem followed by anti-Jewish pogroms by armed Arab gangs in Jaffa, Rehovot, Petach Tikva and other Jewish towns.

In 1922, the British appointed al-Husseini Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. He organized a reign of terror against moderate Muslims who showed any sign of accepting the Jews, and in 1929 organized further pogroms against Jews in Jerusalem, Motza, Hebron, Safed, Haifa, Tel Aviv and Jaffa, as well as Jews living in the countryside. The ancient Jewish community of Hebron was destroyed.

After the massacre of the Hebron Jews, al-Husseini disseminated photos of the slaughtered Jewish corpses with the claim that the dead where actually Arabs killed by Jews! This type of blood-libel is today frequently used against Israel by the Palestinian Authority by the Axis of Islamists and the International Left, and is widely disseminated in the media and universities worldwide. As Morse points out, “The preposterous and quite bizarre proposition presented today is that the State of Israel and its armed forces are deliberately and knowingly killing innocent Palestinian Arabs.” Such propaganda serves the same purpose today as it did in the time of al-Husseini, not to mention mediaeval times, namely as a means of fanning the flames and hatred, and stoking the fires of genocide, against the Jews.

After Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, al-Husseini proceeded to set up a Palestinian Arab Youth Group, known as the Nazi Scouts. Other Arab organizations modelled on the Nazi Party were set up in Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq.

In August 1995, a graduating class of Palestinian Authority cadets, who would later engage in the mass slaughter of Jewish men, women and children, marked the occasion with a Nazi style straight Sieg Heil salute. Fawzi Salim al-Mahdi, a commander of Fatah’s Force 17, Arafat’s elite Praetorian Guard, which would play a key role in suicide bombings, was known as Abu Hitler, because he named his two sons Eichmann and Hitler.

In 1936, al-Husseini made contact with the German Nazis, and with their backing launched the Arab revolt, in which thousands of Jews were butchered to the chilling cry of ‘Itbach al Yahud’ (‘Kill the Jews’). In 1937, al Husseini met with Adolf Eichmann in a cordial meeting that would cement the al-Husseini-Hitler alliance. Eichmann reported glowingly of the ‘national and racial conscience’ among the Arabs of Palestine who hung swastikas and portraits of Hitler in their homes.

That year the mufti fled from the British to Lebanon, and thence to Iraq. After organizing a failed pro-Nazi coup in Iraq, al-Husseini fled to Nazi Germany, where he was installed as a guest of honor who frequently met with Hitler and was present at the 1942 Wannsee Conference where the ‘Final Solution’ to the Jewish question was adopted. Al-Husseini organized SS Brigades of Muslims from the Caucuses, the Middle East and Bosnia, including the infamous Hansar Brigades of Bosnian Muslims, which killed thousands of Serbs, Roma and Jews. He is reported to have visited Auschwitz and urged the SS guards there to be more diligent in their work of extermination. In 1943, he interceded with Hungarian authorities to prevent 900 Jewish children from being shipped to Palestine. The children were instead sent to Auschwitz, where they perished.

After World War II, al-Husseini escaped to Egypt and organized the Arab war effort to destroy the tiny fledgling State of Israel. He formed a band of Arab terrorists, called the Jihad Muqqadas, who launched attacks on Jewish civilians. Until his death in 1974, and his succession by his nephew Yasser Arafat, al-Husseini continued to devote his life to the destruction of Israel.

The evil of al-Husseini and Hitler lives on in the terror and propaganda war against Israel.

Lowest point in human history since 1945? What about East Timor, Rwanda and Cambodia? No, this conference in Durban was worse. I don't know what was said there. I know some people today compare Israel to Nazi Germany. If that was what they were doing i agree that it was way out of line. But comparing this conference with Nazi Germany isn't exactly a high point either.

It was perhaps not quite accurate to say that the Palestinians had "nothing" to do with the persecution of Jews. More people than Germans took part in the atrocities. Some of my own compatriots got plenty of blood on their hands. But it is hardly fair to say that Arabs had "much to do with it" if we compare them to the worst perpetrators. My point is that we must keep apart the debate about the Holocaust and debates about current international affairs. If the Jews should get a state as a compensation for their suffering, wouldn't it be more fair to give them a part of Germany? No, i am not suggesting that we move Israel to Germany. But we can not let world war 2 dominate the debate about the Middle East for ever.

By the way. who is the left you call anti-Israeli? In America, is it the Democratic Party and the "MSM"? I know that Norway for a long time was one of the most pro-Israeli countries in the world. One of the reasons was the very strong ties between the Norwegian Labour Party and its sister party in Israel.
