The ‘Inextricable Connection’ between Islamists and Hitler

Middle East Forum director Gregg Roman appeared alongside Mouin Rabbani, a senior fellow at the Institute for Palestine Studies, and Sakarya University professor Norman Finkelstein on Al-Jazeera English on October 22 to discuss Benjamin Netanyahu’s controversial statement that Palestinian Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini contributed to Nazi planning of the Holocaust. See video below right.

    Not so sure the Grand Poofta was the sole instigator. The Germans certainly watched the muslim turks conduct genocides against Greek Orothodox Christians, Armenians and Assyrians.

    I take any discussion of Israel on Al Hunzeera TV as Mo propaganda. Their coverage is as biased as Press TV. The fact is that the Grand Mufti was declared a war criminal at Nuremberg but prosecution was not undertaken because they didn’t want to inflame the Arabs. The fact remains that the Arabs have engaged in genocide several times in the last 100 years – Saddam Hussein, Assad, Al Bashir in Sudan.
    The Mufti may not have herded people in to Nazi gas chambers but he was certainly an accessory by cheering and motivating.

    If Netanyahu hadn’t brought up the record of the Mufti, accurately or otherwise, the media, including Al Jazeera, would still be hiding him in the closet. With talk now about the extent of the Mufti’s relationship with Hitler, score one for Bibi.

    It’s the first time I’ve ever heard the costive Finkelstein not refer to his parents’ being in the death camps.

    Still a boring sod though.

    Our Arab friends hid post war Nazis and used their special skills on jews that were captured in the 1948 war. The mufti told his arab peasants that what was left after the arab armies’ certain victory would be the theirs to rape and kill at their discretion. It didn’t happen, but the young arabs of today, dream of such a thing happening, we must make it a surety that it does not happen. And this is the difference between the Christian west our Hebrew brothers and sisters, and the scum that infest the rest of the world.

    Check out this 1947 article highlighted by New English Review. It was evidently a topic of discussion even back then.
