  • Op-Ed: Islam, Not Nazism, Motivated Hajj Amin el-Hussini, Pt 1

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 19/10/13 | Dr. Andrew G. Bostom
    During his October 6, 2013 speech at Bar Ilan University, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu alluded to the ex-Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin el-Husseini. Mr. Netanyahu characterized el-Husseini as, “the undisputed leader of the Palestinian national movement in the first half of the 20th century.” The Prime Minister highlighted the ex-Muft’s role in fomenting pogroms (dating back, in fact, to the so-called “Nabi Musa” riots of 1920) during the decades between the Balfour Declaration, and the eventual creation of the State of Israel in 1948. Netanyahu’s address also focused on el-Husseini’s World War II era collaboration with the Nazis, the...

    This unpleasant bit of history is routinely ignored and glossed over, despite the blazingly obvious congruence of National Socialist anti-Semitism with modern-day Islamic jihadist anti-Semitism, which existed long before Nazism and helped fuel it. NETANYAHU LINKS PALESTINIAN LEADERSHIP, NAZIS (Arutz Sheva)—In a surprisingly powerful and frank speech at Bar Ilan University, delivered in a calm and almost informal manner, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu pointed to a deep link between the Palestinian national movement and the Nazi regime in Germany. At the heart of the oration was the determination that Arab rhetoric notwithstanding, the “territories” and “settlements” are not the heart...

    The most striking proof that the Arab anti-Israel cause is a common meeting ground for both Nazis and Communists --and that the Arabs welcomed supporters of both ilks-- lies in the friendship of Carlos, the notorious master terrorist who served the PLO, with Fran*ois Genoud, an old Nazi, one of the leading Nazis in pre-War Switzerland, later a financier who provided funds for Habash's faction of the PLO. "Carlos" (his nom de guerre) was what is called a "red diaper baby." His fabulously rich father, a Venezuelan lawyer and owner of estates, gave "Carlos" the name Ilich, Lenin's patronymic, as...

    The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia has ruled that ten year old girls can be married off, because in his words, "Good upbringing makes a girl ready to perform all marital duties at that age." The Mufti, who also recently called for destroying churches in the Arabian Peninsula, is descended from Mohammed Wahhab who gave birth to Wahhabism and his descendants have controlled the Saudi religious establishment, which has given them control of Islam around the world. For all his power and influence, the Mufti is blind and hasn't seen a thing in the last 52 years, an apt metaphor...

    If the pope called for the destruction of all the mosques in Europe, the uproar would be cataclysmic. Pundits would lambaste the church, the White House would rush out a statement of deep concern, and rioters in the Middle East would kill each other in their grief. But when the most influential leader in the Muslim world issues a fatwa to destroy Christian churches, the silence is deafening. On March 12, Sheik Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the grand mufti of Saudi Arabia, declared that it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.” The ruling came in response...

    The cornerstone argument in the Arab narrative against Israel is that the Zionists in the 19th and early 20th centuries came to the Land of Israel and stole Arab land. This is a very simple assertion, easy to visualize, seemingly logical and amenable to a brief presentation: after all, Zionists did come from Europe to what was then Palestine, and the Arabs were already living there. So obviously when the Jews came they took Arab land. Although there exists voluminous evidence to the contrary in Arab and Turkish and British sources indicating the exact opposite, it is difficult to present...

    Many readers of the New York Times no doubt believe that Pope Pius XII was "Hitler's Pope." John Cornwell's bestselling book told them that, and it's been reaffirmed by Garry Wills, Daniel Goldhagen and other writers since. It's been said so often in fact that most well-read liberals know it for a certainty. The only trouble is: it isn't true. Not only does it contradict the words of Holocaust survivors, the founders of Israel, and the contemporary record of the New York Times, but even John Cornwell, the originator of the phrase "Hitler's pope," has recanted it saying that he...

Sheik Abdul-Aziz Al Sheikh was quoted as saying those who think such girls are too young to marry are doing them an injustice. Al-Hayat newspaper quotes Sheik Abdul-Aziz Al Sheikh, the country's grand mufti, as also saying during a lecture on Monday that critics who say women should not marry before the age of 25 are following a 'bad path'. The mufti's comments showed the conservative clergy's opposition to a drive by Saudi rights groups, including government ones, to define the...

Abdul-Azeez ibn Abdullaah Aal ash-Shaikh, the country's grand mufti, said: 'It is wrong to say it's not permitted to marry off girls who are 15 and younger.

    It is axiomatic that a knowledge of history is a prerequisite for understanding the present. But the question is: How much weight should we give to controversial figures from the past when deciding how to think about current conflicts? According to the authors of a new book about the grand mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini (1893-1974), a man who played a key role in fomenting and exacerbating the struggle between Jews and Arabs during much of the 20th century, the answer is quite a lot.

    In November, 1941, the Islamic Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini  met with Adolf Hitler in Germany to share their mutual hatred for Jews. Two years later in the spring of 1943, the Mufti was persuaded by Nazi Heinrich Himmler to assist in the development of a new Muslim wing of the Waffen SS called: 13. Waffen-Gebirgs-Division der SS, Handschar,SS Hands; for the sole purpose of destroying the Jewish element residing within the Islamic sphere. Himmler would publicize Husseini's visits to the new Muslim army to inspect its arms and training excercises, and Husseini would convince other important Muslim leaders that...

Yet, this premiere public-private organization is deficient in their scholarship, leaving out of the historic record, reference to the 1930's and 1940's Nazi-Arab conspiracy, probably because of political correctness once again surpassing truth. With its origins within the Carter administration, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) was officially chartered by a unanimous Act of Congress in 1980 and was inaugurated in 1993 in Washington, DC....

    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...

    On the surface there would seem to be little to unite the Aryan racialists of the neo-Nazi movement with the terrorists of radical Islam. To the neo-Nazis, Muslims are almost all members of ``inferior`` races; and to the Islamic terrorists, the neo-Nazis are almost without exception either atheists or members of fringe quasi-Christian sects. But the reality is that there has been close cooperation between Muslim extremists and Fascists ever since the founding of the Nazi movement in the 1920`s. For all of their differences, Muslim extremists and Nazis have always been united by a common group of beliefs and...

    The Nazification of the Palestinian Arabs didn't begin with the most recent suicide-bombing pogrom against the Jews of Israel. The process began in 1921 when Herbert Samuels, the British Mandatory Governor of Palestine, appointed Amin al-Husseini as Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. The Mufti would proceed to literally introduce Hitler's National Socialism into Palestine and much of the rest of the Arab world. Al-Husseini had previously been an Ottoman officer when, upon arriving in Palestine in 1920, he played a major role in organizing riots against Jews. Al-Husseini also launched an assassination campaign against Muslims who refused to submit to his...
