Skip to comments.The Nazi connection to Islamic terrorism - (excellent history!)
Posted on 07/24/2005 7:35:46 PM PDT by CHARLITE
Chuck Morse's latest book, "The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism, Adolf Hitler and Haj Amin al-Husseini," provides the clearest, most incisive history of how Islamo-fascism and Jihad terrorism have become the dominant political philosophy in the Arab world. It is the untold story of how Nazism took root in the Islamic world through the untiring efforts of the mufti of Jerusalem, whose aim it was to destroy the Jews in Palestine. Morse writes:
The Nazi Holocaust appears to have kicked into high gear on Nov. 25, 1941, during a Berlin meeting between the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini (1895-1974) and the Nazi Fuhrer of Germany, Adolf Hitler. At that well-documented meeting, Hitler promised al-Husseini, the Palestinian pan-Arab leader, that after securing a dominant military position in Europe, he would send the Wehrmacht, the Nazi war machine, on a blitzkrieg across the Caucasus and into the Arab world under the guise of liberating the Arabs from British occupation.
It should be noted that merely two months after the Hitler-Husseini meeting, the infamous Wansee Conference took place in which the Nazis produced their plan to exterminate the Jews of Europe.
Although Husseini spent the war in Germany, he managed to flee the advancing Allied forces and made his way to Cairo. While the captured Nazi leaders were tried at Nuremberg, Husseini escaped judgment and became the major force in transferring Hitler's program of genocide to the Arab world.
During the war, he had recruited Bosnian Muslims to serve in Nazi-Muslim SS Hanshar brigades which slaughtered Jews and Christian Serbs in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia. Memory of that slaughter was one of the reasons why the Serbs went after the Bosnian Muslims 50 years later.
After the war, Husseini established working links between Nazis and Arabs in the Muslim world. He also got rid of anyone who stood in his way. That is why moderate Arabs are so rare. Husseini killed most of them.
He began his public career after World War I, when moderate Arab leader Emir Feisal signed an agreement with Chaim Weizmann recognizing the Balfour Declaration, which facilitated the development of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.
Feisal believed that a Jewish Palestine would help the newly liberated Arab world develop into modern states with prosperous economies. But Husseini refused to accept a Jewish Palestine, and he instigated pogroms to force the Jewish settlers out. The first pogrom took place in 1920. Morse writes:
In 1921, shortly after the launching of the 1920 pogrom and for reasons that will forever remain shrouded in mystery, Sir Herbert Samuel, a British Jew who had been appointed as British High Commissioner of the Palestine Mandate that same year, appointed al-Husseini as Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.
Despite vigorous opposition to this appointment, Husseini proceeded to instigate violence against the Jews in Palestine and spread hatred of Jews throughout the Arab world, brutally purging any Arab who opposed him. In 1937, Husseini met with Adolf Eichmann in Palestine and became a full-fledged paid Nazi agent. In 1941, Husseini moved on to Baghdad where he helped organize the pro-Nazi Rachid Ali officers' coup against the British government in Iraq. When the coup failed, Husseini fled to Rome and then to the Third Reich.
One of the Iraqi coup plotters was Gen. Tufah Khariallah, uncle, guardian, mentor and future father-in-law of Saddam Hussein. The mufti was also a mentor to Yasser Arafat, who is believed to be Husseini's nephew.
Overlooked in the history books is the fact that about 100,000 European Muslims fought on the Nazi side in World War II. They included two Bosnian Muslim Waffen SS Divisions, an Albanian Waffen SS Division in Kosovo and Western Macedonia, the Waffengruppe der-SS Krim, formations consisting of Chechen Muslims from Chechnya, and other Muslim formations in Bosnia-Hercegovina.
Bosnian Muslims, who were in the Croatian pro-Nazi Ustasha, were especially brutal toward the Christian Serbs. In 1943, a report on Ustasha activities stated:
The Ustasha terror began in Mostar. The Ustashi, the majority of them local Mohammedans, are arresting, looking, and shipping off Serbs or killing them and throwing the bodies in the Neretva River. They are throwing Serbs alive into chasms and are burning whole families in their homes. Outside of Zagreb the strongest Ustasha hotbed is Sarajevo. The Muslims committed unbelievable barbarities for they murdered women and children even with scissors.
After reading this book you will have no trouble understanding the origin of Islamo-fascism and Jihad terrorism. The author has packed the book with detailed documentation as well as photographs showing Husseini inspecting his Nazi-Muslim troops. Morse shows how Husseini's legacy of hate and murder, and his aim to destroy Israel, have been carried forth by Arafat and his murderous Palestinian terrorists right to the present.

This is good info. The Arabs don't realize that they used to be good neighbors with the Jews.
It is Hitler all over again.
Its not just the Nazis.
More than anything else the problems with Arab society stem from the greed and pettiness of European colonizers. During and after WWI when various European countries decided they could no longer support their colonies, they threw them loose into the world with no guidance. Chaos erupted. Dictatorships and theocracies eventually arose because the people had no experience with democracy. Various 'revolutionary' leaders took power promising change and fairness. Given absolute power they became corrupt and established governments that would support their decadence.
The genocide in Rwanda, the chaos across Africa including Somalia, the disorders of Egypt, Iraq, Iran, and Israel, and the wars between Pakistan and India can all be traced back to the failure of European countries to help their colonies establish a decent and stable government. While Nazis may have helped breed fascism and evil, we cannot forget that the abandonment of these countries by the Europeans is what started the evil in the first place.
Obviously this is a lesson for both Iraq and Afghanistan as well. We cannot be like the Europeans and screw up the Middle East again.
Historically true but as a practical matter, Nazi Germany's ability to foment anti-western behavior ended decidedly in 1945.
Far more effective was the Kremlin's anti-western education given to hundreds of thousands of middle-easterners during the 50's and 60's and 70's.
The Fuhrer then made the following statement to the Mufti, enjoining him to lock it in the uttermost depths of his heart:
1. He (the Fuhrer) would carry on the battle to the total destruction of the Judeo-Communist empire in Europe.
2. At some moment which was impossible to set exactly today but which in any event was not distant, the German armies would in the course of this struggle reach the southern exit from Caucasia.
3. As soon as this had happened, the Fuhrer would on his own give the Arab world the assurance that its hour of liberation had arrived. Germany's objective would then be solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere under the protection of British power. In that hour the Mufti would be the most authoritative spokesman for the Arab world. It would then be his task to set off the Arab operations, which he had secretly prepared. When that time had come, Germany could also be indifferent to French reaction to such a declaration.
Once Germany had forced open the road to Iran and Iraq through Rostov; it would be also the beginning of the end of the British World Empire. He (the Fuhrer) hoped that the coming year would make it possible for Germany to thrust open the Caucasian gate to the Middle East. For the good of their common cause, it would be better if the Arab proclamation were put off for a few more months than if Germany were to create difficulties for herself without being able thereby to help the Arabs.
He (the Fuhrer) fully appreciated the eagerness of the Arabs for a public declaration of the sort requested by the Grand Mufti. But he would beg him to consider that he (the Fuhrer) himself was the Chief of State of the German Reich for five long years during which he was unable to make to his own homeland the announcement of its liberation. He had to wait with that until the announcement could be made on the basis of a situation brought about by the force of arms that the Anschluss had been carried out.
The moment that Germany's tank divisions and air squadrons had made their appearance south of the Caucasus, the public appeal requested by the Grand Mufti could go out to the Arab world.
The Grand Mufti replied that it was his view that everything would come to pass just as the Fuhrer had indicated. He was fully reassured and satisfied by the words which he had heard form the Chief of the German State. He asked, however, whether it would not be possible, secretly at least, to enter into an agreement with Germany of the kind he had just outlined for the Fuhrer.
The Fuhrer replied that he had just now given the Grand Mufti precisely that confidential declaration.
The Grand Mufti thanked him for it and stated in conclusion that he was taking his leave from the Fuhrer in full confidence and with reiterated thanks for the interest shown in the Arab cause...
The Arab left-Nationalists who studied in the Soviet Union were HATED by the fundamentalist Muslims during that time.
Good history lesson....
I'm sure the fuhrer had he won and accomplished his objectives, would have said; "OK, now ve can take care of der Arabs, ve already know der solution to the Arab problem." I don't think the Arabs would believe that would happen to them. The Nazis would have probably wiped them out once they got control of the area's oil. And the Palestinians think they got it rough now?,
Arafat's REAL name is/was Abd ek-Rahmin Abd el-Rauf Arafat el Qudwa el- Husseini.His full name reveals his relationship to the Former grand Mufti of Jerusalem.
Read Robert Conquests "DRAGONS OF EXPECTATION"
The battle to destroy western civilization is marxist, leftist, and now islamic. It started far before the Nazis and it continues today.
This is why the far left in our ivory towers supports Islam fanatics.
Nazis are long gone - get over it.
I think, you could also easily place some of the blame on the faddish politics of Marxism.
If you'd like to be on or off this middle east/political ping list, please FR mail me.
The Nazis were leftists.
It is a mistake to believe that the Islamists will have nothing to do with Arab Nationalists like the Baathists. They will use each other as Saddam used Bin Laden, Zarqawi, Ansar al-Islam, and like Syria has used Hezbollah.
The bottom line is that totalitarian regimes come from the left, are dangerous to the free world and will ally as Hitler and Stalin did to prevent freedom.
Asia was colonized by Europeans and also by the Japanese.
Somehow it survived and thrived(in comparison to Africa or the Arab world.)

there is no difference
Thanks for the ping. There was an excellent article on this topic a week ago in the Wall Street Journal. I forgot to clip it.
Late Bosnian Muslim president Izetrbegovic was a recruiter for Waffen SS Division Handschar
Thanks for the ping!
In WWII Waffen SS Handschhar Division has commited horendous crimes against Serbs in Bosnia, in Srebrenica for example.
The true meaning of Srebrenica myth can not be understood without this- an ultimate holocaust revisionist ploy.
Can you recall who wrote it? If you find it, by all means post it here, and ping me. OK?
It is vitally important that we saturate the internet with THE TRUTH about islamofascism! ....and with all due respect to good people (like President Bush) who say that these modern terrorists "highjacked one of the world's great religions.......a religion of peace," I say that they are sadly mistaken. It is NOT and never has been peaceful. It has been a ruthless, bloody cult used throughout 1,400 years for the purpose of total conquest, in exactly the way in which Hitler attempted to conquer the world.
See this article, which I've also just posted here on FR.
The author is Ian Johnson, Wall Street Journal. I've found it in excerpt form in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
Travis, there is some great data and material here for you when the next Islamo excuser jumps on you for your graphic arts showing the links.

This is a real eye-opener - ping!
Thanks for posting this, CHARLITE!
A Balkans ping.
For the millionth time, the Handzar Division had no role in the Holocaust of the Jews.
Thanks for the clarification. Can you elaborate?
The Handzar themselves had a German officer corps and had some Imams attached to them. They were horrifed to learn that they had to cooperate with Serb Chetniks in sweeps against Partisans, when in fact they wanted revenge against these very Chetniks.
The Best English book on the Handzar is written by American author George Lepre.

Very much appreciated.
His info is erronoeous.
They had no role regarding Jews. Can you provide dates where they did? Trust me, you can't.
