Netanyahu denies absolving Hitler for Holocaust, says mufti ‘wanted Jews dead’

Hitler is responsible for killing six million Jews in the Holocaust, and the Palestinian Arab leader at the time, Haj Amin al-Husseini, encouraged him and also wanted to see the Jews dead, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said as he boarded a plane for Berlin on Wednesday.

Netanyahu’s clarification came as an uproar ensued as a result of comments he made a day earlier that some interpreted as taking the blame for the Holocaust off of Hitler’s shoulders, and placing it on al-Husseini.
