Jihad in WWII - The clear 'holy war' within the Muslim world [Historic truth] - Eexamples of the clearly 'Holy War' jihad in WW2: Whether by Islamic leaders, Mullahs and "activists" or even by the general public in the Muslim world who Islamicized Hitler in its glorification.
Israel vs Islamo Arab campaign of genocide
Attempted genocide From the Start. Israel has always faced (radical) Arab genocide, To fully understand current conflicts in the Middle East, history must be recalled. It exist a common phrase (by an Atlanta professor R. Friedmann): 'If the Jews would just lay down their weapons there would be no more Israel.'
D. Radyshevsky (2003): "There is such a word. It is "genocide". In 1948, five Arab armies tried to choke the Israel state in embryo form. Days before the invasion, Azzam Pasha, the General Secretary of the Arab League, announced, "This will be a war of extermination, a momentous massacre, which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades." In 1967, Egypt's Nasser declared, a few days before the war, "Our main task is to destroy Israel." Syria's Assad echoed, "It is time to embark on a war of annihilation." The same sentiments were voiced in 1973.
Only the fear of yet another resounding defeat or being snuffed out by Israel's nuclear weapons, have since held back (Saddam's) Iraq, Iran, Egypt and Syria from new attempts. Yet, the Satanic obsession with "destroying the name of Israel" in Islam keeps growing. Arab maps still do not include Israel and, after the 55 years of de-humanization and demonization of the Jews in Arab propaganda and education system, the psychological grounds are laid for a new genocide. The clear and present danger of a new Jewish Holocaust not just the toothless condemnation of terrorism should be the subject of Israeli delegations' presentations at the all the world's genocide Conferences.
Only due to Israel's military deterrent capability has this new genocide not come to pass. The key to this capability is maintaining full military control over Judea, Samaria and Gaza, minimal territorial depth to mobilize the reserves in the case of an attack and to prevent the Palestinians from striking straight into the heart of Israel. Back in 1967, the American Chiefs of Staff concluded that the moment the Islamic world believed that Israel's containment capability is gone, they would launch an attack. Thus, Israel must have permanent military control over the tiny land of Israel (0.12% of the total Middle East land mass), in order to prevent a new Holocaust. Any person with any vestiges of Western... morality has to admit that Jewish military presence in Judea and Samaria is an acceptable price for preventing a Holocaust. If you choose to call it occupation, feel free to do so. Occupation is an acceptable cost for preventing genocide." 
From April 12, 1958 Mike Wallace's interview with Abba Eban: WALLACE: All over the Middle East too, though, will you not find that the huge majority of the Arab people are interested in the extermination of Israel?
EBAN: We find that the governments of Arab countries still articulate the aim of our extermination, but er... I think it is beyond their powers to achieve it and, of course, in any international system which respects law and morality, there must be resistance to any such policy. 
Some have put it: This is about a 250 million strong Pan-Arab Movement seeking to drive 6 million Jews into the sea.
Yet, in spite of it all, it has been noted: "Israel has upheld its democratic values despite being threatened like no country on earth... In defending itself against wars of aggression, unparalleled terror campaigns and continuous promises to annihilate it, Israel has a track record on the protection of rights that would compare favorably to the record of any democracy, much less democracies under threat."
The first (publicized) arab sponsored terrorist attacks upon Jews occurred in 1920, a highlighted tragedy is the Hebron Massacre of 1929, where thousands of Arabs descended from Har Hebron, shouting "Kill the Jews!" in Arabic.
This was not the first mass racist attack by Arabs against unarmed civilian Jews in British Mandate Palestine,' nor would it be the last attempted extermination.
Though there were Islamic attacks on the Jews in Palestine-Israel prior to that, including a major massacre in 1834, the Safed Plunder, mass killing and rape, that went on for 33 days, and repeated in 1838, nevertheless, the first known attack in an open and clear set out goal of annihilation, was in the 1920s.
It was the Mufti who sought to annihilate the tiny State of Israel.  The Palestinian Mufti's dealt with Hitler: 'Kill All the Jews in the Middle East.' A writer in an article: 'Nazi Roots of Palestinian Nationalism,' quotes the Mufti: "Our fundamental condition for cooperating with Germany was a free hand to eradicate every last Jew from Palestine and the Arab world. I asked Hitler for an explicit undertaking to allow us to solve the Jewish problem in a manner befitting our national and racial aspirations and according to the scientific methods innovated by Germany in the handling of its Jews. The answer I got was: The Jews are yours." - Former Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini in his post-World War II memoirs. In "The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism: Adolf Hitler and Haj Amin al-Husseini," The author details how in post war Cairo, al-Husseini established himself as a key player in transferring Hitler's program of genocide against the Jews.
The Mufti & genocide of Jews
In June 1940, the Mufti had offered his services to the Nazi Reich government, In Berlin, he explained to the German ambassador, Ettel, his plan to bring all Arabs under the banner of Pan-Arabism over to the side of the Axis. In June 25 1942, he came out unconditionally for the "final solution" of the Jewish question," calling on the Germans to wipe out all Jews, "not even sparing the children." 
"the Muslims inside and outside Palestine welcome the new regime of Germany and hope for the extension of the fascist, anti-democratic governmental system to other countries." - Quote from the leader of the Palestinians, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, welcoming the Nazi rise to power, 1933. "Our fundamental condition for cooperating with Germany was a free hand to eradicate every last Jew from Palestine and the Arab world. I asked Hitler for an explicit undertaking to allow us to solve the Jewish problem in a manner befitting our national and racial aspirations and according to the scientific methods innovated by Germany in the handling of its Jews. The answer I got was: 'The Jews are yours.'" - Quote from the Mufti after WW2. "I declare a holy war, my Moslem brothers! Murder the Jews! Murder them all." - Quote from the Mufti calling for a genocide of the Jews when Israel was declared a state, 1947.
The seeds, planted by the Mufti
The Arab-Islamic Palestinian wartime leader, the Mufti, "was one of the worst and fanatical fascists and anti-Semites," He intervened with the Nazis to prevent the escape to Palestine of thousands of European Jews, who were sent instead to the death camps. He also conspired with the Nazis to bring the Holocaust to Palestine. The Mufti "invented a new form of Jew-hatred by recasting it in an Islamic mold," according to German scholar Matthias Kntzel. The Mufti's fusion of European anti-Semtismparticularly the genocidal varietywith Koranic views of Jewish wickedness has become the hallmark of Islamists world-wide, from al Qaeda to Hamas and Hezbollah. During his time in Berlin, the Mufti ran the Nazis' Arab-language propaganda radio program, which incited Muslims in the Mideast to "kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history and religion." Among the many listeners was also the man later known as Ayatollah Khomeini, who used to tune in to Radio Berlin every evening, according to Amir Taheri's biography of the Iran ian leader. Khomeini's disciple Mahmoud Ahmadinejad still spews the same venom pioneered by the Mufti as do Islamic hate preachers around the world. Muslim Judeophobia is notas is commonly claimeda reaction to the Mideast conflict but one of its main "root causes." It has been fueling Arab rejection of a Jewish state long before Israel's creation. 
Since 1948, the Arab tyrannies have attempted to destroy Israel.  Many of the so-called "civilians" were active combatants who threw their hats in Arabs ring with the invading Arab countries whose aim was to annihilate the Jewish State.
From LIFE magazine, 1956: Something else also needs to be said: "It is you, the Arabs, who insist there is no peace. Israel does not say she intends to destroy the Arab world, but it is you who proclaim your intention to destroy Israel. It is your holy men who cry out for holy wars against her. It is your spokesmen who talk of driving the last Israeli into the sea. It is you who refuse to accept Israel's right to existence.
In 1957, the (Arab led) Refugee Conference at Homs, Syria, passed a resolution stating: "Any discussion aimed at a solution of the Palestine problem which will not be based on ensuring the refugees' right to annihilate Israel will be regarded as a desecration of the Arab people and an act of treason" (Beirut al Massa, July 15, 1957). 
Professor Michael Anbar ('Israel and Its Future: Analysis and Suggestions'): "The five Arab armies of Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Lebanon and Iraq immediately invaded the new microstate one day one day earlier. Their combined intention was expressed publicly by Azzam Pesha, Secretary General of the Arab League on May 15: "This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian masssacres and the Crusades." In other words, the Arabs threatened not just individuals but of a nation, namely, genocide. According to international law, genocide is a crime against humanity."
It has also been recorded that Azzam said to the Arabs that "it would be a simple matter to throw the Jews into the Mediterranean."
Historian Ronald E. Ringer: "Israel wished to secure Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and a corridor between, while the Arabs wanted to annihilate the Jews. Events One day after Ben-Gurion's announcement, various Arab armies invaded." 
The author León Uris in "Exodus" (p. 576) writes [about the Arab refugees of 1948, caused by Arab leaders]: that there's absolutely documented fact that the Arab leaders wanted the civilian population to leave Palestine as a political issue and a military weapon. The Arab generals planned an annihilation of the Jewish people. He explaines, therefor: They did not want a large Arab civilian population to clutter their operational freedom.
The author E. Karsh: Ever since, the Arab states continued to seek to annihilate that entity which had declared its independence in 1948. 
From the "UN monthly chronicle" (Volume 9, by United Nations, Office of Public Information 1972, p. 13) Not since the Nazi holocaust in Europe had the physical annihilation of an entire people been an objective of war. The aim of the Arab onslaught against Israel was openly proclaimed to be the massacre of the Jewish people in Israel .
Though Haim Weizmann declared he would accept a Jewish state even with the size of a tablecloth still, even that was rejected by the Arabs who swore to "throw the Jews into the sea" and attacked in force to fulfill that oath.
What the Fight in Israel Is All About... Spring of 1967 the Arab countries, led by Gamal Abdul Nasser of Egypt, prepared to attack Israel and, in their own words, "throw the Jews into the sea."  , the Arab leaders' slogan : "We'll Throw Them into the Sea."  Al-Nasser [told] the UN forces in 1967, 'Get out and we will throw them into the sea. We will throw the Jews into the sea.' 
In 1967, Egypt's Nasser was planning a Pan-Arab invasion to eradicate Israel, he declared, a few days before the war, "Our basic objective will be the destruction of Israel.", Syria's Assad echoed, "It is time to embark on a war of annihilation." The same sentiments were voiced in 1973. 
Indeed, explains author: "After all... when the Arab dictatorships last menaced the Jewish state and threatened its annihilation, those corrupt nations ended up losing huge tracts of land in the rapid Israeli triumph."
Lebanese journalist Brigitte Gabriel: 'Arabs are taught hatred of Jews with mothers' milk.' "universities teach hatred of Jews," from a lecture at Columbia university - March 6 2005 entitled: "Environments of Hate: Indoctrination in the Arab World and Propaganda Advocacy in Americas university Classrooms" I am an eyewitness and a victim of the indoctrination of hate education, racism, intolerance, intimidation and fabricated lies by my government and religious influences. This indoctrination was for one purpose: To eradicate the newborn state of Israel ; to foment hatred and wipe out Jewish presence in an Arab dominated world. For Arabs, the simple existence of Israel was viewed as a catastrophe...al nakbah! This pan Arab hate indoctrination was a reaction to Jews returning to their homeland after Arabic and Islamic belief for 1400 years that the Yahuds were vanquished and subjugated as Dhimmi. I believe hate motivated indoctrination fosters irrational thinking and faulty reasoning.
Arab states farther afield also readied their military forces to be sent to what many of them confidently assumed would be the final assault on the Jewish state. Arab leaders were not reticent in proclaiming their aims. "The problem before the Arab countries," declared Nasser in May 25, ". . . [is] how totally to exterminate the State of Israel for all time. "Our goal is clear: to wipe Israel off the map," declared President Aref of Iraq on May 31, "The Arab struggle must lead to the liquidation of Israel," explained Algerian president on June 4, And on June 5, the day the war broke out, Radio Damascus exhorted simply: "Throw them into the sea." Though Israel asked the Jordanians to stay out of any Arab assault, but on June 5, when the fighting began, King Hussein joined in as well, shelling the entire Israeli frontier... On June 7, Hussein broadcast this to his army: "Kill the Jews wherever you find them. Kill them with your arms, with your hands, with your nails and teeth." 
In 1967, The Golan Heights was the place in which the Syrian army began its attack on Israel as part of the all Arab plan for the "final solution" of Israel . The propaganda which accompanied this attack, still sends shudders through the bones of those who lived this experience. Throughout the streets of Damascus, Cairo and Amman the frenzied mob marched chanting: "idhbah, idhbah, idhbah, idhbah al-yahud" - slaughter, slaughter, slaughter the Jews! And the Syrian media was busy showing the fate awaiting Jews once the victorious Syrian army conquered Israel. To demonstrate the bravery of its soldiers (including women), the Syrian television also showed how they eat snakes alive and how they slaughter pet animals and drink their blood. Syria was the most cruel in treatment of POWs. A Syrian soldier who killed Israeli Prisoners of war with an ax was decorated as a war hero; and some of the Israeli POW who survived the hideous tortures of the Syrians came back home broken forever.
A report of Egypt preparing for a chemical attack sent a shivering alarm in Israel, and the Cairo Radio announced: "All Egypt is now prepared to plunge into total war which will put an end to Israel."
From a documenting book on the era of the six days war: " 'Itbach el Yehud!' 'Kill the Jews.' I could hear the Arabs scream. More shots, and hand grenades, tossed from the door of that mosque. They exploded right in front of me..." 
Judenstaatrein, deputy prime minister of Sweden, pithily concluded: "Compared to most previous anti-Jewish outbreaks, this [new anti-Semitism] is often less directed against individual Jews. It attacks primarily the collective Jews, the State of Israel. And then such attacks start a chain reaction of assaults on individual Jews and Jewish institutions In the past, the most dangerous anti-Semites were those who wanted to make the world Judenrein, 'free of Jews.' Today, the most dangerous anti-Semites might be those who want to make the world Judenstaatrein, 'free of a Jewish state.'" One of the best exoerts on anti semitism Irwin Cotler writes in an article titled "Making the world 'Judenstaatrein'", he elaborates about Islamic Genocidal Anti Semitism": There are three manifestations of this genocidal anti-Semitism. The first is the state-sanctioned - indeed state-orchestrated - genocidal Anti-Semitism of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad 's Iran, dramatized by the parading in the streets of Teheran of a Shihab-3 missile draped in the emblem "wipe Israel off the Map," while demonizing both the State of Israel as a "cancerous tumor to be excised" and the Jewish people as "evil incarnate." A second manifestation of this genocidal Anti-Semitism is in the covenants and charters, platforms and policies of such terrorist movements and militias as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hizbullah and al-Qaida, which not only call for the destruction of Israel and the killing of Jews wherever they may be, but also for the perpetration of acts of terror in furtherance of that objective. The third manifestation of this genocidal Anti-Semitism is the religious fatwas or execution writs, where these genocidal calls in mosques and media are held out as religious obligations - where Jews and Judaism are characterized as the perfidious enemy of Islam, and Israel becomes the Salmon Rushdie of the nations. 
The New Anti-Semitism, hostility to Jews is strongest among those on the Left who claim to be fighting racism... anti-Zionism is now being used to cloak a terrifying nexus between genocidal Arab and Islamist hatred of the Jews and deep-seated European prejudices, Anti-Semitism is protean, mutating over the centuries into new forms. Now it has changed again, into a shape which requires a new way of thinking and a new vocabulary. The new Anti-Semitism does not discriminate against Jews as individuals on account of their race. Instead, it is centred on Israel, and the denial to the Jewish people alone of the right of self-determination. This is nothing to do with the settlements or the West Bank. Indeed, the language being used exposes as a cruel delusion the common belief that the Middle East crisis would be solved by the creation of a Palestinian state.
Constant themes within Saudi television shows include: calls for the annihilation of Christians and Jews.
Radical Islam's Threat of genocide against the Jews- Remarks by the Representative of Israel to the Fourth Stockholm Conference on the Prevention of genocide...the State of Israel, which arose phoenix like from the ashes of the Shoah, and which for most of its short history, has itself been threatened with extermination... an upsurge in hate speech directed against Jews, over the last three years. This phenomenon reached its apogee recently when the Syrian produced television series "Al Shataat" (Diaspora) chose to resurrect the evil, heinous, and false accusation of ritual murder which has dogged the Jewish people since the middle ages. This television series was carried by the Hezbollah TV. station, "Al Mannar", which is broadcast from Lebanon and is readily accessible here in Europe, through a European satellite service. Everyone in this room knows the inevitable and tragic results of hate propaganda such as this... words of one of the foremost Saudi clerics, spoken at a mosque at the center of the Islamic world. The Saudi cleric, Mohammed Salah el-Munjeed, stated: "How can Moslems not be joyful when in the killing of Jews and infidels? Allah will surely gladden the hearts of his followers as they kill and destroy all of them (the Jews)."
A writer in an article titled: "The Darfur Israel Connection" - 'The targeting of Israel and Darfur by the Arab world,' a number of Western leaders, who advocate "dialogue" with Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas, prefer to ignore their genocidal agenda. 
In March 2010, the Conseil supיrieur de l'audiovisuel (CSA), the French broadcasting regulator, instructed Eutelsat, which owns the Atlantic Bird A4 satellite, to stop broadcasting the Islamist Egyptian Al-Rahma TV channel, because of the virulently antisemitic content it frequently aired.
(MEMRI TV page for Al-Rahma TV: ).
In June, 2010, Al-Rahma TV Tried to Deceive French Regulator, After Being Banned from Broadcasting on Eutelsat Satellite.
Al-Rahma TV began to broadcast in November 2007, apparently with initial funding from Saudi Arabia. The channel is owned by Sheikh Muhammad Hassan and is directed by his brother, Mahmoud Hassan. Al-Rahma regularly broadcasts blatantly antisemitic messages, including calls to annihilate the Jews. The Jews are portrayed as the offspring of apes and pigs, and as snakes and vipers, and are said to be the worst enemies of the Muslims, after Satan. The Muslims are exhorted to hate the Jews, independent of the Palestinian issue. On one show, footage from the Holocaust and the liberation of a concentration camp was broadcast, as the show's host, Sheikh Amin Al-Ansari, expressed the hope that another holocaust would be perpetrated, this time by the Muslims.
(Al-Rahma TV often broadcasts venomous anti-Shi'ite messages, as well as anti-U.S. and anti-Western incitement. Programs promoting wife-beating and polygamy have also been monitored on Al-Rahma TV). 
Islamic Egyptian cleric: The Jews "are enemies not because they occupied Palestine. They would have been enemies even if they did not occupy a thing." Muhammad Hussein Ya'qoub: The Jews Are the Enemies of Muslims Regardless of the Occupation of Palestine," (aired on Al-Rahma TV on January 17, 2009) "If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start loving them? Of course not. We will never love them. Absolutely not. The Jews are infidels - not because I say so, and not because they are killing Muslims, but because Allah said: 'The Jews say that Uzair is the son of Allah, and the Christians say that Christ is the son of Allah. )If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start loving them? Of course not. We will never love them. Absolutely not. The Jews are infidels not because I say so, and not because they are killing Muslims, ... Qur'an... This is it. We must believe that our fighting with the Jews is eternal, and it will not end until the final battle and this is the fourth point. You must believe that we will fight, defeat, and annihilate them, until not a single Jew remains on the face of the Earth. 
Qatari Cleric Sheik Muhammad Al-Muraikhi: 'The Jews Are Our Enemies Because They Are Infidels, Not Because They Occupied Palestine,' The following is an excerpt from a Friday sermon delivered by this Qatari cleric: We do not treat the Jews as our enemies just because they occupied Palestine... even if they return Palestine to us, because they are infidels. 
The Palestinians Encourage genocide , and on Palestinian TV they openly call: Kill All The Jews, Palestinian Muslim cleric urges all Arabs to kill Jews, Christians. (Even calling to Kill all Americans.) Islamic sermons broadcast on Palestinian Authority have also been openly genocidal for instance on 2007, Acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council Sheik Ahmad Bahr from Hamas, declared during a Friday Sermon at a Sudan Mosque that America and Israel Will Be Annihilated and Called upon Allah to Kill the Jews and the Americans 'to the Very Last One,' , it uses EU aid towards preaching genocide, its culture embeds an ideology of genocidal radical Islamism - Jihad-Islamism.
'Palestinian' Muslim cleric Muhsen Abu 'Ita told Al-Aqsa TV: "The annihilation of the Jews here in Palestine is one of the most splendid blessings for Palestine. This will be followed by a greater blessing, Allah be praised, with the establishment of a Caliphate."
An emphasis in radicals' work is indoctrinating Palestinian children to genocidal hate, Imams are extremely influential in successfully emphasizing the goals of jihad and martyrdom, Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris: "Kill A Jew Go To Heaven" The Muslims will kill the Jews, rejoice!"Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan delivered a hate-filled sermon (March 30, 2007) calling for the "liberation of Palestine" through terrorism rather than through inter-Arab and international conferences. Delivered two days after the Riyadh Summit, the sermon, which included a call to slaughter the Jews, was broadcasted on Palestinian television, controlled by "moderate" Fatah's Abu Mazen.
From a February 2010 report: 'Fatah/PA TV Nazi-Like Sermon: "Fight The Jews & Kill Them -- They Are Enemies Of Humanity & Allah"' ZOA National President said, "This horrifying and obscene sermon, broadcast on PA TV, shows that Nazi-like venom of uncontrolled Jew-hatred remains the reality within Mahmoud Abbas and Salaam Fayyad's PA. "Every Jew and decent person must take this Nazi-like proclamation to kill every Jew with absolute seriousness. Jews have paid a monstrous price for ignoring these types of threats throughout our history. We dare not do so now." 
In May, 2011, Yunis al Astal, a member of the Palestinian Authority parliament, spelled out his organization's vision for the genocidal annihilation of the Jewish people in a television interview last week. The interview was broadcast on Hamas Al Aqsa TV He explained that Jews are 'Gathered for Annihilation.'
On Sep. 9, 2011, Egyptian Cleric Hazem Shuman on Al-Rahma TV: "These Jews... Getting Rid of Them Is a Must."
In Jan. 2012, PA religious official publicly Called for Genocide of Jews. Energy Minister Uzi Landau, speaking at the cabinet meeting on the occasion of International Holocaust Memorial Day noted, "this is not coming from Hamas, which we are used to - this is coming from Palestinian Authority television. If that is not anti-Semitism, then I don't know what is.
At the outcry of a brutal massacre by Arab-Muslim Palestinians of a Jewish family while asleep in Itamar, Israel (March, 2011), where a baby's throat was slashed, the cause for such crimes was raised, 'Palestinian Authority incitement against Jews': "Palestinian incitement: Jews receive 'Der Stürmer' depiction," leading for the "Atmosphere for terror," Israel said: "The world must call on the Palestinians to put a stop to the incitement. When Abbas chooses a band calling for the annihilation of Jews to play at festivals, then how can you even dream of reaching an agreement?"
Especially the Islamic party, "The Hamas Ideology of Hatred and genocide : Islamic supremacy over the world, destroying Israel and Jews," Hamas is the acronym for "Islamic Resistance Movement", whose meaning, is "fanaticism". The Hamas Charter offers stereotype images, perpetuated in a culture of hate . Aside from the usual mad gibberage inspired by The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, it is committed to a genocidal jihad ideology against "the Jews," and this Culture of Hate is repeated again and again in official sermons at mosques in Gaza and elsewhere, which are shown on the official television of the Palestinian Authority., it vows to 'drink' the blood of Jews, Hamas suicide bombers' videotape: 'We drink Jews' blood'- A Hamas Web site published the videotape wills of two suicide bombers in which they pledge to drink Jews blood until they flee from Muslim land. Simply put, Hamas is committed to the annihilation of Israel and opposes the peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Hamas created a Mickey-Mouse-like character to incite children for genocide. Hamas MP and cleric Yunis Al-Astal, in 2011, expressed his desire to have the "Honor of Annihilating" the Jews.
Until at least (March 30) 2007 genocide of Jews remains Hamas open goal  it declares: "The Final Goal of the Resistance is to Wipe This Entity Off the Face of the Earth" "We are making the preparations for a confrontation. This is not because we need to be prepared for an Israeli act of aggression - after all, aggression is intrinsic to this entity - but because the final goal of the resistance is to wipe this entity off the face of the Earth. This goal necessitates the development of the capabilities of the resistance, until this entity is wiped out."
Gaza kids 'training to kill Jews,' "I am learning how to fight the Jews and kill Jewish children," explain Palestinian children.
Hamas Clerics call frequently for genocide as an 'Islamic vision.' Cleric Wael Al-Zarad Calls for the Annihilation of Jews and States: If Each Arab Spat on the Jews, They Would Drown in Arab Spit. (Al-Aqsa TV, Hamas / Gaza, 2008). Palestinian Cleric Sa'd Abu Jleidan: The Jihad against the Jews Will Continue until Their Annihilation (Al-Aqsa TV, 2008) On Hamas TV Friday Sermon: Calls to Annihilate the Jews, Who Are Compared to Dogs.(2009) 
Clearly, Hamas, the Muslim-Brotherhood-linked terror group is dedicated to the annihilation of Israel through jihad, the people who comprise Hamas are dedicated to the annihilation of Israel and the slaughter of every Jew who lives there , in its Charter 1988 it states: 'Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it' ... Hamas wants the islamisation' of all the Middle East (as a first phase).
Ultimate goal of anti-Israel terrorism
From an analisys on the peace process: Arab terrorism, with its commitment to the eradication of Israel, is the principal cause of the collapse of the peace process.
In June 2010, speaking in harmony with Iran's spiritualist leader Ayatollah Khamenei's praising of Robert Mugabe after recent meetings in Iran, an Islamic fundamentalist group based in Pakistan called for the extermination of Israel.
In Al-Qaeda's Intellectual Legacy - Islamic Thinking justifying the genocide of infidels, According to al- Ali, all citizens of Israel are to be considered combatants., How Al-Qaeda Justifies Terrorism and genocide : it believes that both Jews and Christians want to destroy the Islamic religion and it is far better for al-Qaeda to kill us before we do any harm to Islam. "The Islamic victory over the USSR in Afghanistan, the creation of the al-Qaeda global network, and the spread of Islam in many Western countries are seen as signs of an Islamic awakening that from the radical Islamist perspective may lead to the restoration of Islam as the world's most dominant power," ... in this new emerging world order, Christians and Jews are no longer protected minorities under Islam. As a result, there is a dangerous trend among militant Islamist clerical authorities, especially from Saudi Arabia, justifying not only acts of terrorism against individuals, but also mass murder against whole groups of people regarded as infidels. Their call for the complete extermination of peoples means they have moved ideologically toward the justification of genocide.
In her book 'Lebanon's Hezbollah ' (2003, Page 49) Ann Byers writes: 'In the 1990s, Hezbollah was training members of the terrorist groups Al Qaeda... (it supported the PLO, as) in its early days the PLO was dedicated to the annihilation of Israel. '
The Hezbollah Founding Statement contains a section titled "The Necessity for the Destruction of Israel," which reads as follows: "We see in Israel the vanguard of the United States in our Islamic world. It is the hated enemy that must be fought until the hated ones get what they deserve . . . Therefore our struggle will end only when this entity is obliterated." 
Terrorist Hezbollah's political-strategic goals vis-a-vis Israel - the essence of which is to wear down Israel until its final annihilation. 
Hezbollah calling on Muslims to kill all Jewish Israel is with firearms, knives and poison.
The widening arena of Hezbollah's attacks stemmed from Nasrallah's perception that Jews anywhere are legitimate targets. In fact, Hasan Nasarallah has said: If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide. (Daily Star, Oct. 23, 2002).
More from Hassan Nasrallah, Leader of Hezbollah on Al Manar: "Let the entire world hear me. Our hostility to the Great Satan, America, is absolute. Regardless of how the world has changed after September 11, death to America will remain our reverberating and powerful slogan: Death to America." (House Record: 'war is ugly but tyranny is uglier'). "Martyrdom operations -- suicide bombings -- should be exported outside Palestine. I encourage Palestinians to take suicide bombings worldwide. Don't be shy about it." 
Hezbollah's renewal of Jihad genocide on Global "Jewish Targets" (June, 2008).
Participants in a Hezbollah network-sponsored symposium urge that Israel "be completely wiped out" and "just like Hitler fought the Jews" the "great Islamic nation of Jihad" should "fight the Jews and burn them."
The 'Muslim Brotherhood's Sheikh Yousef Al-Qaradawi: 'There is No Dialogue between Us and the Jews Except by the Sword and the Rifle.'  This spiritual leader of the MB asked Allah "to kill the Jews.. every last one of them."
At the 2011, so-called 'Arab Spring,' the Muslim Brotherhood rally vowed to 'kill all Jews.'
Genocidal declarations in: 1991, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2010.
In 1991, Iran's official cleric, Imam Mohsen Rabbani in Argentina: "Israel," he intoned in accented Spanish, "must disappear from the face of the Earth." at that gathering, he and a dozen speakers who followed quoted Iran's late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and called for unity in the fight against Zionism and the satanism of the West. 
Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, (former president of Iran) in December 2001: "In due time the Islamic world will have a military nuclear device, and then the strategy of the West would reach a dead end, since one bomb is enough to destroy all Israel."
In December 2001, One of Iran's most influential ruling cleric called Friday on the Muslim states to use nuclear weapon against Israel, assuring them that while such an attack would annihilate Israel, it would cost them "damages only."
Islamic Republic of Iran's President Mahmud Ahmadinejad's Genocidal Incitement against Israel, his (2005) call for Israel to be "wiped off the map" has triggered a sharp international response and widespread condemnation, (It was not mistranslated) and has been described as wanting to carry out another genocide aimed at destroying the State of Israel. He 'faced genocide case', in 14 Dec 2006, and was expected to be the target of a lawsuit which accuses him of inciting genocide against Israel.
(Though, Juan Cole, regarded as highly contoversial and as a staunch anti-Israel campaigner via blatant lies, whose opinion is described as controversial even by liberal media, is probably the only known prominent journalist/activist to try somehow to dispute the simply obvious message. Besides, J. Cole didn't make a case against all the other dates, whereby Iran has threatened annihilation between 1994-2011).
In 2007, Ahmadinejad has threatened (again) the State of Israel with annihilation, Iran : 'Israel, US will soon die'
In June, 2008 in railing against the US and Israel, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad predicted on Monday that Muslims would uproot "satanic powers" and repeated his controversial belief that Israel will soon disappear.
In February, 2010, Ali-Akbar Salehi, head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization declared: Attacking Iran's nuclear facilities will spell the End of Israel.
Iran's president M. Ahmadinejad said in August 2011: "Annihilate Israel." Regardless of Arab-Palestinian attempt to get "statehood."
In February 2012, defending its nuclear program, Ayatollah Khamenei referred to Israel yesterday as a cancerous tumour that should be cut and will be cut, a comment illustrative of his country's historic antipathy to the Jewish state. Author in an article entiteld: "Nuclear Iran: Genocide in the Making," Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reaffirmed Iran's commitment to acquire nuclear weapons, while speaking of Israel as a "cancerous tumour that must be excised and will be excised" from the Middle East. Khamenei voiced also his support for those "confronting the Zionist enemy," and "removing it from the face of the Earth." Canada compared his remark to Hitler's racist book.
The Islamic Republic's Nuclear plan is regarded by many a Clear and Present Danger, realize the dangers to humanity emanating from a genocidal, nuclear-armed Iran  Iran's Nuclear Anti-Zionism Is Genocidal, Not Political, said Charles Asher Small, director of Yale's Interdisciplinary Initiative for the Study of Anti-Semitism, tells the story of the reception
Author in 2006: Both Israel and the United States have taken the position that in light of Iran's history and avowed threats to use nuclear weapons against Israel, that nation will not be permitted to develop a nuclear weapon.
Author in 2009: Iran has threatened Israel with the use of nuclear weapons. President Mohammed Rushtani recently stated that "any escalation by Israel against the peace-loving Muslim states must take into account Iran's nuclear potential...
Explicit threats by the Islamic Republic of Iran to use nukes were recorded at least on the following dates, December 2001 (that "Muslims should use nuclear weapon against Israel," an attack which "would annihilate Israel"); in 2007 (that "if threatened, we will use nuclear weapons"); in 2008 (on destroying Israel and attacking the US); and in 2010 against the US (that "nuclear devices will go off in American cities").
Canadian MP Irwin Cotler: "A nuclear, genocidal, rights-violating Iran is a clear and present danger to international peace and security." S. Palin called it a "second holocaust." Noted writer: "If the World Won't Stop Iran's Genocide, Israel Must."
Michael Oren, Israel's ambassador to the United States said in July 2009 that: "An Iran ian atomic bomb can wipe Israel off the map in a matter of seconds."
Even many of 'moderate Arabs' have been accused of this.
In 2007, London's editor of 'pan-Arab daily' editor was praying for an Iranian nuclear genocidal attack on Israel, declaring: "if the Iranian missiles strike Israel, by Allah, I will go to Trafalgar Square and dance with delight." circulating its propaganda to about 50,000 readers.
In a poll of February 16, 2007 '75% of Palestinians do not think that Israel has the right to exist.' A 2011 Poll Exposes Palestinians' Peace Opposition, as "Seventy-three percent agreed with a quote from the Article 7 in the Hamas Charter, about the need to kill Jews..."
Jerusalem Post's C. Glick: No Tolerance for genocide, genocide : The Spirit of Palestine... in Palestinian society today. It is not just Hamas or Tanzim or Islamic Jihad that we must fight, but Palestinian society itself must be transformed for there to be peaceful coexistence. Poll after poll shows that a solid majority of Palestinians from all socio-economic levels supports suicide bombers and other forms of terrorism against Israel. In fact the polls show that the higher the socio-economic level of the respondents, the stronger their support for terrorism. Virulent, Nazi-style Jew hatred and dehumanization has become for the Palestinians, as for the Germans before them, the central unifying theme of society. The best-seller lists in the PA for years have included such works as Mein Kampf and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Occasionaly, preaching --by official Palestinian media-- for genocide includes targeting all non-Muslims (infidels). Case in point, at the aftermath of the London Bombing (7/7). Less than a day after the terrorist bombings in London, the Palestinian Authority's official television channel broadcast a sermon calling for extermination of all non-Muslims.
At the 2006 Muhammad cartoons event, the streets in Islamabad were brandishing signs that proclaimed "God Bless Hitler, several Pakistani women clad in traditional Muslim garb were also holding such a sign. In London the protesters held signs reading "Freedom Go to Hell," "Exterminate Those Who Mock Islam," "Be Prepared for the Real Holocaust."
On the so called 'Palestinian documentaries'. Tatiana Menaker wrote: 'College Film Festival: Kill the Jews.' It is understandable that the mere existence of Israel in such close proximity is unbearable. What is strikingly serious in all these films is that if one were to count the most often used words, these words would be "humiliation" and "Kill the Jews!" Even in the most peaceful and idealistic documentary... a young boy asked what he wants to do when he grows up is prompted by his father: "Kill the Jews!" When asked to draw a picture of his future he draws himself killing Israel is. 
The International Solidarity Movement - a 'Palestinian' propaganda machine, organized many activities, including on US campus, both, the ISM and PSM support in thinly veiled language suicide bombings... the audience chanted "Kill the Jews" - "Ittbach al yahood" in Arabic. The International Solidarity Movement (ISM), its American, student affiliate the Palestinian Solidarity Movement, and other radical left-wing groups label every inch of Israeli territory as "occupied Palestine," advocate destroying the Jewish State by "any means necessary," and openly condone terrorism and Muslim suicide bombers as a means for accomplishing this goal. These groups are working to eliminate a population of six million Jews., in 2002 National Palestinian Student Conference on the Palestine Solidarity Movement, it's set out purpose of the university of Michigan meeing was to promote divestment from Israel, keynote speaker was Sami Al-Arian, long alleged to be a frontman for Islamic Jihad and since indicted for it, "Annihilate the Jews" was chanted in Arabic at the event. 
From an account on 2002 at CSU, Yoni Petel, president of Concordia's Hillel Jewish Student Union and one of the organizers of the Netanyahu appearance, says the mob - estimated at between 200 and 500 Muslim and Palestinian students and members and supporters of the Concordia Student Union - chanted "Kill the Zionists" as they pummeled ticket-holders. "And in the street," Petel reported, "people heard cries of 'Itbah al Yahud!' (Kill the Jews!)." Police put an end to the spectacle only after protesters began kicking in the plate-glass windows separating the building's lower foyer entrance from the seething stretch of boulevard out front. Five people were arrested and were released on bond, pending court hearings; two were students, one a vice president of the CSU. 
At Israel's operation against Hamas terrorists in 'cast lead' December 2008-January 2009, anti Israel Arab Muslim protesters called for Jews to 'Go Back to the Oven', to 'kill all the Jews', or: "Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas." In February 2009, Two Muslims were found guilty of anti-Jewish chanting, guilty of shouting 'Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas' during a demonstration by around 100 people in the centre of Utrecht, the Netherlands. Protesters have more than once declared how happy they would be if the Jews were simply wiped out once and for all, in Los Angeles: demonstrators in front of the Israeli Consulate chanted, "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free" -- a vision that can only be realized by the total destruction of Israel. They waved the flag of the jihad terrorist group Hizballah. To cheers from other demonstrators, some shouted, "Long live Hitler! Put Jews in ovens! Jews are fossil fuel!", in Fort Lauderdale: Arabs, Muslim demonstrators chanted, "Nuke, nuke Israel !" and "Go back to the ovens! You need a big oven, that's what you need!", and a number made comparisons to the Holocaust. From statements, slogans in a "solidarity" protest in San Francisco, January 2009: "Itbach al Yahud" (slaughter the Jews) "Falastin balad'na w'al Yahud qalab'na" (Palestine is our land and the Jews are our dogs)."
Phyllis Chesler: Today, we have grown used to seeing Palestinian and Hamas supporters goose-step, Nazi-style, shoot out their arms as they deliver the Hitlerian "Sieg Heil" salute. They also chant and scream: "Jews to the ovens," "Hitler did not kill enough of you," "Jews to the gas chambers."
A Toronto Muslim, student at York university, called for genocide on what he described: "Filthy Jewish Terrorists." Police were probing (March, 2010) Salman Hossain's postings on the Arizona-based Internet site on which he writes harshly about Jews, Christians and moderate Canadian Muslims, whom he calls "traitors." He also says, "if there were any planned attacks against Canadian/American soldiers by 'Muslim militants' in Canadian soil, I'd support it." It's pretty hard to believe that in the 21st century there is a blogger right here in Canada who calls for the genocide.
On April 2010, The Jewish Defence League protested against Canadian taxpayer funding of Palestine House, and the jihadi thugs outside Palestine House couldn't have been more obliging in showing why that funding should be stopped immediately... From an example of one Muslim guy in the Palestine House parking lot, yelling, "We need another Holocaust" at the protesters, Partial transcript: JDL Guy: "No more jihad." Palestine House Guy: "We love jihad. We love killing you." JDL Guy: "Peace, education, not jihad. No more jihad -- stop it!" Palestine House Guy: "We love it. No, we love it. We love killing dogs... your b-tches with you." JDL Guy: "We like the Palestinians only we hate the terrorists." Palestine House Guy: "What do your women taste like?" 
In May 2010, at a speech at UC San Diego, where the "Muslim Student Association" was exposed with it's radical ties, a Muslim student tried to challenge the speaker, the discourse reached to what the head of Hezbollah said: "The head of Hezbollah has said that he hopes that we [Jews] will gather in Israel so he doesn't have to hunt us (Jews) down globally," the Muslim student simply responded "For it."
In July 2010, a Muslim immigrant from Bangladesh, Salman Hossain was charged with plotting genocide of Canadian Jews, he's called for "the slaughter of Jews" in online postings, according to Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), thus became the first person to be charged with promoting genocide in Canada.
In an anti-Israel stunt (the Flotilla boat, 2010, heading to Gaza) under the guise of "humanitarian aid" and supposed "peace activism," organized by the radical Islamic group IHH - tied to terrorism, the Muslims called to 'Kill Jews for Allah' - before attacking the Israeli security who came aboard checking the boat for weapons-smuggling (as Palestinians so often did), they have shot them with live ammunition, stabbed with knives, beaten with iron clubs, metal chains and threw Israelis off the boats, they were shrieking Islamic battle cries and expressing a willingness to martyr themselves in order to kill Jews.
In an earlier radio exchange with Israeli coast guard that warned them of entering its waters, an Islamist's reply was: "Shut up. Go back to Auschwitz" and in another reply later on, during the radio exchange, another man said: "We're helping the Arabs go against the US. Don't forget 9/11, guys."
The United Nations arena, has been used for anti-Israel hate propaganda, ever since the early 1960s' by Ahmad Shukairy. He was the infamous Mufti's aide and henchman during WW2. He also identified himself with Nazi groups. He called in 1967 to 'throw the Jews into the sea.'
In the 1970s' UN's anti-Israelism grew. In the words of an outraged European ambassador exclaiming in a 1977 exclusion of Israel: this is another infamous instance of the racist Arab states autocratically imposing their will on the United Nations.
The United Nations is beholden to Arabs and tries to portray Israel as the offender. This is the same U.N. that couldn't define 'Terrorism' for eight plus years. Hundreds of rockets have landed in Israel without a comment by the U.N., Israel forces seek to defend itself and the U.N. makes loud official statements demanding an end of hostilities. The news media is complicit, never taking interest in rockets slamming Israel as much as they give credit to Arab nations protesting Israeli attacks. The Arab world will never protest Hamas or Hezbollah targeting innocent civilians. The Arab power (via oil, terrorizing representatives and threats of "angry Arab street") control over the UN is immense.

Europe must take seriously the ideology of anti-Semitism coming out of the Arab and Islamic world. It must denounce the deliberate targeting of Jews by terrorist groups, whether it be al Qaeda or Hamas.
Official PA Newspaper Prints Racist, Anti-Semitic Cartoons [Published: 05/25/05, 1:45 PM / Last Update: 05/24/05, 8:04 PM] (IsraelNN.com) Despite repeated calls by the Bush administration to end anti-Israel incitement in the Palestinian Authority media, the official newspaper of the PA continues to regularly publish hate cartoons against Israel and Jews.
Continued incitement against Israel in the PA press flies in the face of U.S. sponsored Road Map plan. Aside from fighting terrorism, one of the primary obligations of the PA under this plan is the elimination of incitement against Israel. As recently as two days ago, at the AIPAC convention in Washington on Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice called on the Arabs to end incitement in their media.
Press Release Israel / Middle-East
Anti-Semitism at Core of Hamas Charter
New York, NY, February 27, 2006 The founding covenant of Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group whose leaders are poised to take a central role in the governance of the Palestinian Authority, is committed not only to the destruction of Israel and the establishment of an Islamic state in its place, but to raw, unadulterated Jew-hatred.
Adopted in August 1988, the Hamas Charter openly embraces the notorious anti-Semitic forgery, "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion," holding it up as evidence that Jews are innately greedy, manipulative and conniving, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The charter adopts classical anti-Semitic canards: Jews as plotting to control the world, Jews acquiring wealth by stealing, and Jews controlling the levers of power in media, government and finance. Such stereotypical anti-Semitic canards have been used through the centuries to defame and demonize Jews, leading to violence, pogroms and, ultimately, the Holocaust.
"The Hamas credo is not just anti-Israel, but profoundly anti-Semitic with racism at its core," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "The Hamas Charter reads like a modern-day 'Mein Kampf.'
The Anti-Semitism of Hamas
Anti-Semitism is a major pillar in the ideology of Hamas.
by Meir Litvak
Anti-Semitism is a major pillar in the ideology of Hamas (acronym of Harakat al-muqawama al-Islamiyya Islamic Resistance Movement), a Palestinian national-Islamic movement, which perceives and articulates its conflict with Israel in Manichean and absolutist religious terms. Like most other Islamic movements in the Middle East, Hamas regards the conflict with the latest and most fateful phase of the relentless onslaught waged by western imperialism and culture against Islam since the Crusades. Hamas publications portray the Jews as instruments of the West or, alternatively, as the power that controls and manipulates the West in this war. Concurrently, it views the current struggle as the last link in the war, which the Jews have been waging against Islam since its essence. Consequently, Hamas emphasizes the emphasis on the Islamic essence of the Palestinian cause.
Modern Anti-Jewish Animosity
The modern anti-Jewish animosity of Islamic movements goes much further than traditional Islam. Although Muslims have always viewed Islam as a superior religion, superseding Judaism, they did not consider Judaism as a heresy, which required eradication, as long as it did not challenge Islams rule. Historically, Muslims regarded Christianity as a greater threat than Judaism, and devoted greater attention to it in their polemical literature.
However, due to the conflict with Israel, Judaism rather than Christianity has become the prime enemy for the Islamist organizations, drawing inspiration from anti-Jewish utterances in the Koran and from modern European anti-Semitism.
A good example of this vilification is the Hamas Charter, the movements canonical document, which provides a picture of the Jews and Judaism drawn from the notorious anti-Semitic tract, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Article 22, for instance, describes the Jews as controlling the world media with their money and as having established secret organizations throughout the world such as the Freemasons and Rotary Club for the destruction of societies and the fulfilment of the goals of Zionism. They have caused revolutions all over the world, from France in 1789 to Russia in 1917 in order to fulfil their goal. Likewise, with their money, they seized control of the imperialist powers and pushed them to subdue many countries in order to squeeze their resources and spread their corruption. In addition, Hamas accuses the Jews of fomenting all-important wars in history. Most important, the Jews stood behind the outbreak of World War I, which eliminated the Ottoman Empire, the state of the Islamic Caliphate. The breakdown of Islamic unity opened the way for the establishment of the Zionist entity in Palestine. Likewise, they were behind World War II, through which they made huge financial gains by trading in armaments, and paved the way for the establishment of their state.
Of special significance are the wars, which the Jews have waged against Islam from the time of the Prophet. Accordingly, the Jews opposed the Prophet from the moment he arrived in Medina, in a desperate effort to prevent the spread of Islam, rejecting his generous offers and distorting his message. They tried to harm the Islamic umma (nation) and dominate it.
Derogatory Descriptions of the Jews
In many of its publications Hamas employs harsh derogatory descriptions of the Jews, often taken from the Koran, such as blood suckers, brothers of apes, killers of the prophets, human pigs, and warmongers the descendants of treachery and deceit, butchers. They are a cancer expanding in the land of Palestine, threatening the entire Islamic world. They are spreading corruption in the land of Islam. Deceit and usury are stamped in their nature, and they are all thieves, monopolists, and usurers.
Almost every issue of the Hamas organ, Filastin al-Muslima contains articles enumerating the evil deeds and character of the Jews based on an analysis and exegetes of specific suras (chapters) from the Koran.
Particularly significant, in view of the historical record, are the equations, which Hamas makes between the Jews, the Zionists and the Nazis and the denial of the Holocaust. Hamas argues that Israels actions exceed those of the Nazis, and that the Jews represent Nazism in its most criminal form.8 Yet, following the Stockholm conference on the Holocaust, held in January 2000, Hamas declared that the conference had:
A clear Zionist goal, aimed at forging history by hiding the truth about the so-called Holocaust, which is an alleged and invented story with no basis . . .. The invention of these grand illusions of an alleged crime that never occurred, ignoring the millions of dead European victims of Nazism during the war, clearly reveals the racist Zionist face, which believes in the superiority of the Jewish race over the rest of the nations.
cAbd al-cAziz al-Rantisi, Hamas leader from Gaza, went further by denying the Holocaust, while simultaneously charging that the Zionists were behind the Nazis murder of many Jews, with the aim of intimidating and forcing them to immigrate to Palestine. Furthermore, he claimed that the Nazis received tremendous financial aid from the Zionist banks and monopolies, prior to their seizure of power and that this great financial aid helped the Nazis build the military and economic force needed to destroy Europe and annihilate millions. When we compare the Zionists to the Nazis, Rantisi concluded, We insult the Nazis, he concluded. 10
Reviewing the life of the late Pope John Paul II, the Hamas weekly al-Risala concluded that his 1998 letter, in which he apologized to the Jews for the Holocaust was his greatest crime.
Why Anti-Semitism Is Growing in Germany
By Donald Snyder
Published December 22, 2010, issue of December 31, 2010.
Meanwhile, many of Germanys 4 million Muslims stay connected with events in the Middle East via cable television networks, such as Hezbollahs Al-Manar and Hamass Al-Aqsa. These are anti-Semitic networks that promote Holocaust denial.
Videos justifying the persecution of Jews and promoting child martyrdom for Islam are shown daily on these networks, fueling anti-Semitism among Muslim youth in Germany.
You cannot undo with education what these satellite broadcasts are doing, said Matthias Kuntzel, an author and political scientist, in a phone interview from Hamburg.
The programs are fed to Germany on Egyptian and Saudi Arabian satellites. Both countries have refused repeated German requests to stop transmitting Al-Manar. German law prohibits the dissemination of hate. Although Al-Manar was banned in 2008, private homes with satellite dishes continue to receive its programs, making the ban ineffective.

Why, then, is Erlanger obsessed with this distinction? I suggest that what Erlanger is actually saying is that what is really bad about Hamas is not that it is a racist, terrorist group with genocidal intentions against Israelis but that it is an Islamist organization. If, after all, Hamas is exercising a just right of resistance motivated by Israeli misdeeds, how can it be condemned on those grounds? The trouble with Hamas is that it is a 'right wing' religious group rather than a 'left wing' nationalist one.

In the early 1990s, Hamas spokesmen dismissed doubts concerning the realization of a universal Islamic caliphate. For instance, Mahmud al-Zahhar, a Hamas leader in Gaza, claimed that Palestine had always been part of a greater Islamic state and that a distinct Palestinian state had never existed. A comparison between the religious Islamic past and the currently divided Arab world led Zahar to the conclusion that the framework of separate states had utterly failed. He even pointed to the formation of the European Union as an example of the world-wide trend of establishing supranational political units, which the Muslims should adopt as well. If the caliphs were able to control the Muslim nation in the age of the camel and the donkey, then al-Zahar assumed, that the task should be all the more easier today thanks to the modern means of communication and transport. Notwithstanding the movement's pan- Islamic ambition, spokesmen still gave preference to the Palestinian component of their ideology, even within the framework of the pan- Islamic vision. Accordingly, some of its spokesmen even believed that Jerusalem, not Mecca, would become the capital of the future Islamic caliphate.40 Another example of the wavering between the Islamic vision and the distinct Palestinian identity was the debate between Hamas and al-Qai'da over the priorities of the Islamic struggle.

They are articulating their goals and recruiting thousands of faithful to join the holy fight to reestablish the caliphate and the return of Islamic pride. In a sermon that aired on Hamas' Al-Aksa TV on April 11, 2008, Yunis Al-Astal, Hamas MP and cleric, told worshipers that Rome, the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital, would soon be conquered by Islam, just as Constantinople was. It then, he said, would become an advance post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas, and even Eastern Europe.
The Caliphate is Coming
By Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld
FrontPageMagazine.com | Tuesday, January 31, 2006
To Mousa Abu Marzuk, Deputy Chief of Hamas Political Bureau in Damascus, HAMAS triumph is an important springboard towards the establishment of the Caliphate a global Islamic state, where life would be dictated by the Sharia.
In a statement Abu Marzuk made on January 26, following HAMAS sweeping victory of the Palestinian legislative elections, he said that HAMAS, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), is reaping the fruits of its efforts over the last six decades. It was established in Palestine in 1936 - not in 1987, as most mistakenly think. Since then, the movement, according to Abu Marzuk, has carried out its political, social agenda, including Dawa (Prosetylization) and Jihad.

Allah, kill Christians and Jews "to the last one"
by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook
[Dec. 8, 2010]
A video on official Hamas TV calls for Allah to kill Jews, Christians, Communists and their supporters. The video asks Allah to "count them and kill them to the last one, and don't leave even one."
As Palestinian Media Watch has reported this call for the killing of non-Muslims was a regular pronouncement by both Palestinian Authority (Fatah) and Hamas political and religious leaders for many years starting in July 2000.
For years, sermons by religious leaders on official Palestinian Authority TV under Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas routinely presented the killing of Jews as a religious obligation and a fulfillment of the Islamic ideal.
Due to PMW's exposure of these sermons, which led to international criticism and pressure, Mahmoud Abbas, whose office controls PA TV, has been forced to prevent the broadcast of sermons calling for extermination of Jews on PA TV.
The latest sermon of this nature on PA TV was in January 2010.
[...]see the section on PMW's website documenting the PA and Hamas depicting the killing of Jews as an Islamic obligation.
The following is the transcript of the Hamas video clip:
"Allah, oh our Lord, vanquish Your enemies, enemies of the religion [Islam] in all places. Allah, strike the Jews and their sympathizers, the Christians and their supporters, the Communists and their adherents. Allah, count them and kill them to the last one, and don't leave even one."

The Hamas advocates Killing Jews, simply for being Jews
IDF Spoksperson 24 November 2002
The Iz-Adin Al Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas, published (23 November 2002) a bulletin on their official website, advocating the murder of Jews simply for the fact of that they are Jews.
The bulletin was published to commemerate the anniversary of the death of Imad Akal, a senior Hamas official, killed in the Gaza Strip on November 24, 1993. The bulletin quotes Akal as saying: "We will knock on the doors of Heaven with the skulls of the Jews". The bulletin depicts an axe shattering the word "Al-Yahud" (Jews) and splintering the skulls of Jews. The words Al-Qassam are engraved on the axe.
Here are some examples of the racist Arab-Palestinian Hamas' "Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades" from its own site

Reviewed by Amnon Lord 
"We were the first to think of translating Mein Kampf," wrote Sami al-Jundi, a leader of the Syrian Ba'ath Party in the 1930s. "Whoever lived during this period in Damascus would appreciate the inclination of the Arab people to Nazism, for Nazism was the power which could serve as its champion" (26). Al-Jundi also confessed that "we were racist, admiring Nazism, reading its books and the sources of its thought, particularly Nietzsche, Fichte, and H. S. Chamberlain" (25).
How many people know that Arab delegations and senior political figures were invited to the annual Nazi rallies in Nuremberg during the 1930s? Such details are not simply random anecdotes from the remote past. Indeed, in his new book Jihad and Jew-Hatred, German scholar Matthias Küntzel argues that the origins of the Islamist terror of recent years, which culminated in the attacks on the United States on 11 September 2001, and of the radical anti-Semitic ideologies of Hamas, Hizballah, Iran, the Palestine Covenant, and al-Qaeda, lie in the lethal link between Islamism and Nazism.

New Research Taints Image of Desert Fox Rommel
By Jan Friedmann
Arabs Shouted "Heil Rommel"
Hitler was celebrated in large parts of the Arab world, and some newspapers even likened him to the Prophet. The Desert Fox was almost as popular as Hitler. "Heil Rommel" was a common greeting in Arab countries.
Many Arabs thought the Germans would free them from the rule of the old colonial powers France and Britain. Hitler had shown how to burst the shackles of the Treaty of Versailles. After Germany defeated France in 1940, chants against the French and British echoed around the streets of Damascus: "No more Monsieur, no more Mister, Allah's in Heaven and Hitler's on earth."
Adolf Hitler assured the exiled Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Muhammad Amin al-Husseini, at a meeting in Berlin in November 1941 that his goal was the "destruction of Jewry living in Arabia." The Führer had racist objections to Arabs as well, though. He declined to shake the Mufti's hand and refused to drink coffee with him.
Hitler nevertheless provided the Mufti, who later sponsored Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, with a budget of 750,000 Reichsmark per month to foment Jihad in Palestine. In an example of ideological flexibility, the SS even recruited Muslim volunteers and declared that the Muslims living in the Balkans belonged to the "racially valuable" peoples of Europe.

Young Fidel Castro would imitate Mussolini in front of the mirror. The secularist Baath Party in Syria and Iraq was modelled on Mussolini's Fascist Party. The Iranian Shah Reza Pahlevi was an open admirer of Hitler (for which he was forced by the British to abdicate in favour of his son).
nbsp;The Muslims in particular were enthusiastic. ...Muslim nations rallied to ally with Hitler: the Bosnian Muslims, the Kalmuks, the Chechen and Ingosh, the Balkans, the Meshkets, and the Krim Tatars. In West Asia, prominant leaders like the Druze leader Shakib Arslan (Walid Jumblatt's father) and the Mufti of Jerusalem allied themselves with Hitler.

In the following section I shall describe five parties and movements in the Arab word which to a greater or lesser degree had taken over certain elements of National Socialism or Fascism, namely the Baath (Ba'th)- Party, the Syrian Socialist Nationalist Party, the Kataeb (katd'ib), Young Egypt (Misr al-Fatdh) and the Futuwwa. I shall then concentrate briefly on ideological factors like the influence of Friedrich Nietzsche, the concept of the "strong nation", racialism and European antisemitism.
Letter to an Arab friend By André Chouraqui, Univ of Massachusetts Press, 1972
In 1936... That year an Arab High Committee was formed in the month of April and was presidedover by the mufti, Hadz Amin el Husseini. It included the most reactionary elements of the Arab world and enleashed a revolt which transformed Palestine into a stronghold occupied by more than twenty thousand British soldiers. These Arab elements had been inspired by Fascists and Nazis, a fact since established by the publication of the secret Wilhemstrasse Archives. The Arab High Committee had receieved the financial support of the Nazis and Fascists who financed the revolt, with the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin el Husseini, acting as intermediary. Hitler and his police achieved in Palestine what they had attempted throughout the Arab world (against the Jews)

In Syria, studies analyzing the process of radicalization in the 1930s often highlight pro-fascist tendencies among various newly created nationalist [p. 274] organizations. These tendencies are seen as having manifested themselves particularly in the mushrooming of new radical youth organizations such as the League of National Action, the Lion Cubs of Arabism, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party led ny Antun Sa'ada, the Arab Club, the Steel Shirts, the early Ba'ath movement, and various radical Islamic organizations.

The Fascist regime had him proclaimed a "hero of Islam" and "defender of Islam" in Italian Libya, where a parallel Libyan Arab Fascist Party was created. If Mussolini supported Zionists to some extent as a lever against the British Empire, both he and Hitler subsidized Haj Amin el Husseini, the violently anti-Jewish grand mufti of Jerusalem. Anti-Jewish feeling mounted in parts of the Middle East during the 1930s, as the Fascist and Nazi regimes and doctrines made increasing sense to many Arab nationalists. King Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia sought German arms and contacts and was favorably received. Various delegations of Syrians and Iraqis attended the Niirnberg party congresses, and there were several different Arabic translations of Mein Kampf.

After 1933, there were attempts in the Arab world to establish political parties based on Fascist or Nationa Socialist principles and organization. Both [German representatives: Fritz] Grobba and [Heinrich] Wolf were approached in 1933 by individuals with plans to create National Socialist parties in Iraq and Palestine, respectively. The Palestine correspondent of the news-paper Al-Ahram, Joseph Francis, represented a group of Palestinian Arabs who were interested in establishing such a party. Francis wrote to Wolf in April, 1933, requesting the help of the Consulate-General in this endeavor. In Baghdad, a similar overture was made to Fritz Grobba by Abdul Ghaffur el-Bedri, publisher of the newspaper Istiqlal, and a group of his supporters, Wolf's strong opposition to any sort of German encouragement or support for an Arab Nazi party in Palestine was conveyed in a note to the Foreign Office in Berlin in June, 1933,... In Berlin, the Foreign Office concurred with Wolf's opposition to Arab efforts to involve Germany in the creation of an Arab National party in Palestine... provided the rationale behind the instructions issued to Wolf on the matter...

Armies of the young: child soldiers in war and terrorism By David M. Rosen, page 106
...The shrill calls to take up extremist politics invoked a symbolism that glorified youth, violence, and death. By 1936 Al Difaa, the paper of the Istiqlal movement and the most widely read paper in the Arab community, proclaimed, in clearly fascist tones, that youth must go out to the field of battle as soldiers of the Fatherland. Others argued that the Land is in need of a youth, healthy in body and soul like Nazi youth in Germany and the fascist youth in Italy which stands ready for the orders of its leaders and ready to sacrifice its life for the honor of its people and freedom of its fatherland.
Nationalist rhetoric accompanied major efforts to build fascist-style youth organizations by recruiting young men to serve as the strike force of the nationalist movement. Throughout the 1930s the children of wealthy Palestinians returned home from European universities having witnessed the emergence of fascist paramilitary forces. Palestinian students educated in Germany returned to Palestine determined to found the Arab Nazi Party. The Husseinis used the Palestinian Arab Party to establish the al-Futuwwa youth corps, which was named after an association of Arab Nazi Scouts. By 1936 the Palestinian Arab Party was sponsoring the developments of storm troops patterned on the German model. These storm troops, all children and youth, were to be outfitted in black trousers and red shirts The young recruits took the following oath: Life my right; independence my aspiration; Arabism my country, and there is no room in it for any but Arabs. In this I believe and Allah is my witness.
The al-Futuwwa youth groups connected Palestinian youth to fascist youth movements elsewhere in the Middle East. While the Mufti was establishing youth groups in Palestine, al-Futuwwa groups were established in Iraq.

Icon of Evil: Hitler's Mufti and the Rise of Radical Islam, David Dalin, John Rothmann, Alan Dershowitz
A chilling, fascinating, and nearly forgotten historical figure is resurrected in this riveting work that links the fascism of the last century with the terrorism of our own. Written with vigor and extraordinary access to primary sources in several languages, Icon of Evil is the definitive account of the man who, during World War II, was called "the fuhrer of the Arab world" and whose ugly legacy lives on today. With new and disturbing details, David G. Dalin and John F. Rothmann show how al -Husseini ingratiated himself with his hero, Adolf Hitler, becoming, with his blond hair and blue eyes, an "honorary Aryan" while dreaming of being installed as Nazi leader of the Middle East. Al-Husseini would later recruit more than 100,000 Muslims in Europe to fight in divisions of the Waffen-SS, and obstruct negotiations with the Allies that might have allowed four thousand Jewish children to escape to Palestine. Some believe that al-Husseini even inspired Hitler to implement the Final Solution. At wars end, al-Husseini escaped indictment at Nuremberg and was harbored in France. Icon of Evil chronicles al-Husseinis postwar relationships with such influential Islamic figures as the radical theoretician Sayyid Qutb and Saddam Husseins powerful uncle General Khairallah Talfah and his crucial mentoring of the young Yasser Ararat. Finally, it provides compelling evidence that al-Husseinis actions and writings serve as inspirations today to the leaders of Hamas, Hezbollah, and other terrorist organizations pledged to destroy Israel and the United States.
During the 1920 and 1930s. Haj Amin al-Husseini was one of the first radical Islamic leaders to issue fatwas, or religious rulings, calling for jihad, or holy war, against Great Britain, the United States, the Jews, and the West. Since Workd War I, during which al-Husseini served as an officer in the Ottoman Turkish army, the fatwa was served as a major instrument by which Islamic religious leaders have impelled their followers to engage in acts of jihad, which invariably involved acts of violence and terrorism.

...the Palestinian wartime leader "was one of the worst and fanatical fascists and anti-Semites," .... He intervened with the Nazis to prevent the escape to Palestine of thousands of European Jews, who were sent instead to the death camps. He also conspired with the Nazis to bring the Holocaust to Palestine. The mufti "invented a new form of Jew-hatred by recasting it in an Islamic mold," according to German scholar Matthias Küntzel. The mufti's fusion of European anti-Semtismparticularly the genocidal varietywith Koranic views of Jewish wickedness has become the hallmark of Islamists world-wide, from al Qaeda to Hamas and Hezbollah. During his time in Berlin, the mufti ran the Nazis' Arab-language propaganda radio program, which incited Muslims in the Mideast to "kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history and religion." Among the many listeners was also the man later known as Ayatollah Khomeini, who used to tune in to Radio Berlin every evening, according to Amir Taheri's biography of the Iranian leader. Khomeini's disciple Mahmoud Ahmadinejad still spews the same venom pioneered by the mufti as do Islamic hate preachers around the world.
Muslim Judeophobia is notas is commonly claimeda reaction to the Mideast conflict but one of its main "root causes." It has been fueling Arab rejection of a Jewish state long before Israel's creation.

The Mufti fled Palestine in 1938 to avoid arrest by the British for his part in the Arab revolt. He spent most of the war in Berlin, recruiting Bosnian Muslims for the SS, the semi-military Nazi organization that oversaw Hitler's extermination of the Jews. From 1939 to 1945, the Mufti's Arabic radio broadcasts, which mixed anti-Semitic propaganda with quotes from the Koran, made his station the most popular in the Arab world.
In 1943, as a propaganda stunt, SS leader Heinrich Himmler wanted to permit 5,000 Jewish children to emigrate to Palestine, in exchange for 20,000 German prisoners.

In January 1941, the mufti assured the "great Fuhrer" of the "friendship and admiration" of the Arab people. As he put it, Arab people everywhere were prepared to act as is proper against the common enemy... Haj Amin was receptive to Hitler's offer in March 1941 of a German volunteer legion that would be parachuted into Iraq. He proclaimed Iraq's declaration of war in May 1941, a jihad. And when that revolt was snuffed, the mufti incited a pogrom in Baghdad that left 110 Jews dead.
After the failure of the Gailani coup, the Mufti fled to Iran, where he encouraged Reza Khan to oppose the British and Russians. When the allies jointly occupied Persia in August 1941, he fled to Italy, claiming that he had no place else to go. On November 20, the mufti was granted a 90-minute audience with Adolf Hitler at the latter's Wilhelmstrasse residence. He sought a blessing from the Nazi leader for the creation of a proposed Arab state. Hitler replied it was premature...
For the duration of the war, the mufti was housed in two elegant villas and subsidized to the sum of 75000 marks per month for heading a special Buro des Grosmufti. Its threefold function: (a) espionage (training of saboteurs), (b) propaganda (public broadcasts on Muslim holy days), and (c) recruitment of 500000 troops for the Waffen SS. Although the numbers never reached such size, dozens of his recruits were charged as war criminals in Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia and Lithuania.
Haj Amin told one Nazi official: "The Jewish national home must disappear and the Jews get out. They are free to go to Hell."
Whenever one of Hitler's puppets contemplated negotiation with the Allies to rescue Jews, the Mufti presented a stumpling block... Thus, when King Boris indicated a willingness release 4000 Jewish children for Palestine in May 1943, the mufti protested that the children "present a degree of danger..." Later that month, the mufti reacted against a proposal... that would have permitted 80,000 Jews to flee Romania..
At a time when the Nazis were transporting Jews to killing centers in Poland, Haj Amin declared, The Arab nation awaits the solution of the world Jewish problem by its friends, the Axis powers." He knew what the Nazis mean by Endlosung. As Dieter von Wisliceny, one of Adolf Eichmann's aides, reported: The grand mufti has repeatedly suggested to the Nazi authorities, including Hitler, Ribbentrop, and Himmler the extermination of European Jewry... Even as the military situation deteriorated for Germany in the last 18 months of the war, the mufti found himself drawn closer to his Nazi associates... photographs with Himmler... pledged cooperation And he made it very clear that when the time was appropriate, he would call upon the best saviour of the ArabsAdolph Eichmannto apply his expertise in shuttling Jews to death camps. Eichmann had met the mufti in the Middle East in 1937 and later testified that he had instructed to open all field on Jewish Question to the affable Arabs....

When Kirchway learned that the U.S. delegation to the United Nations backed the British on giving a platform to the Arab Higher Committee, she immediately went into action. First, Kirchwey and the Nation Associates gave out a lengthy report on the pro- Axis activities of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem to all fifty-five delegations to the United Nations. Most striking was the fact that it was based on classified U.S. government files... The Arab Higher Committee, the report charged, was the "creature of the Arab League" and was run from Egypt by the Mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini. The committee's members were not elected representatives but nothing more . . . than a deal among leaders of the various Arab factions in Palestineand the will of the grand Mufti. Three members of the Palestine Arab Higher Committee who were delegates to the U.N. General Assemply, were called, in the Nation Associates report, men who ranked with the "worst of the Axis war criminals."
... The accounts of the Mufti, Kirchway explained, was documented from captured files belonging to the mufti and the German High Command, all found by American military authorities in Germany.
Along with the report were documents and photos that substantiated the charge that the Mufti controlled and directed the Arab Higher Committee. Photos used showed the Mufti and the other Arab leaders with Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Dino Alfieri...

Captured records also revealed that the Mufti had accompanied Adolf Eichmann to visit the gas chambers at Auschwitz. Moreover, the Mufti had put an end to negotiations being carried out to ransom Jews in Bratislava, insisting that they all be liquidated. A letter the Mufti had written to Heinrich Heinrich Himmler revealed the Mufti complaining that Joachim Ribbentrop and Himmler had been too lenient, since the had let some Jews leave Germany. "If such practices continue," the Mufti was quoted as saying, "it would be incomprehensible to Arabs and Moslems

The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism: Adolf Hitler and Haj Amin Al-Husseini, Chuck Morse iUniverse, 2003 - History - 186 pages
This is the remarkable story of Haj Amin al-Husseini, who was in many ways as big a Nazi villain as Hitler himself, and to understand his influence on the Middle East is to understand the ongoing genocidal program against the Jews of Israel. Al-Husseini was a bridge figure in terms of transporting the Nazi genocide in Europe into the post-war Middle East.
As the leader of Arab Palestine during the British Mandate period, al-Husseini introduced violence against moderate Arabs as well as against Jews. Al-Husseini met with Adolf Eichmann in Palestine in 1937 and subsequently went on the Nazi payroll as a Nazi agent.
Al-Husseini played a pivotal behind-the-scenes role in instigating a pro-Nazi coup in Iraq in 1941, in urging Nazi's and pro-Nazi governments in Europe to transport Jews to death camps, in training pro-Nazi Bosnian brigades, and in funneling Nazi loot into post-war Arab countries.

Once the mufti relocated permanently to Berlin, where he established his own Reich-supported "bureau," he was given airtime on Radio Berlin. From [[Berlin]] and other fascist capitals in Europe, the mufti continued to agitate for the destruction of international Jewry, as well as a pan-Arab and pan-Islamic alliance with the Nazi regime, he explained to the German ambassador, Ettel, his plan to bring all Arabs under the banner of Pan-Arabism over to the side of the Axis. (25 June 1942). Here he came out unconditionally for the "final solution" of the Jewish question," calling on the Germans to wipe out all Jews, "not even sparing the children." http://books.google.com/books?id=nvD2rZSVau4C&pg=PA497
Al-Husseini was welcomed into Baghdad with cheering crowds and he was hailed as a pan-Arab hero and as a defender of the faith with the same zeal that Hitler was being hailed at Nazi rallies. Upon his arrival, he immediately launched into political intrigue by organizing and effectively gaining control of the secretive pan-Arab and pro-Nazi Iraqi Arab National Party. The agenda of this party was to link up with likeminded groups in Syria, Transjordan, and cis-Jordan (Palestine) for the purpose of throwing out the colonial powers and forming an independent and United Ummah.
After instigating a pogrom against Jews in Palestine in 1920, the first such pogrom against Jews in the Arab world in hundreds of years, he went on to inspire the development of pro-Nazi parties throughout the Arab world including Young Egypt, led by [[Gamal Abdul Nasser]], and the Social Nationalist Party of Syria led by Anton Sa'ada.

..the Mufti stressed that, "Arab interests are completely identical in thrust with those of the Germans." [...] the Grand Mufti in exile in Germany was not satisfied with mere rhetoric and antisemitic tirades. Rather, he continued to pursue the vision of the destruction of the Jews and the simultaneous creation of a pan-Arab empire under his leadership. This was to culminate in a new Caliphate, yet to be established.

Amin al-Husaini mixed the old traditional and the new racial hatred of Jews into a new ideology which served the totalitarian cause quite willingly.
For his part, the mufti said in 1961 that the Nazis needed no persuasion in their racism against Jews. But Hitler and the mufti influenced each other for the worse.

With Saudi Arabia in the forefront, the Arabs have repeatedly called for the destruction of the Jewish state. They have proclaimed the Jihad, Holy war, against Israel, the war which according to the Koran must end with the enemy's total annihilation. In this endeavor the Arabs are making use of the methods applied by the Germans during the Holocaust as well as by directions resulting from their employment of former SS officials.
As we have stated before in this chapter, history must be viewed as a continuum. Such an unfortunate continuum regarding the Holocaust exist in the continuing Nazi-Arab connection. The influence of these two groups upon each other is mutual. Too little attention is being paid to the way in which Arabs contributed to the effectiveness of the Final Solution program. Haj Amin el Husseini, head of the Supreme Muslim Council and Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, a venomous Jew-hater, had prior to the war organized Arab terrorism against the Jews in Palestine. From 1941 on, he spent much of his time shuttling between Berlin and Rome. He met in Berlin with Ernst von Weizsaecker, State Secretary in the German Foreign Office, with Himmler, and on November 28, 1941 with Hitler. In his meeting, the Mufti tried to strengthen the Fuehrer's decision to " exterminate" all Jews, and both agreed that the Germans would fight the Jews mercilessly, in all of Europe "and beyond."[...]
The Mufti had also met with Eichmann and visited Auschwitz. In Rome, he was received by the Italian Foreign Minister, Count Ciano, and by Mussolini himself. In his meetings with the German officials, the Mufti stressed the need to wipe out as many Jews as possible and to finally revoke the designation of Palestine as a Jewish National Home. He proposed that after the German victory,an Arab state --under his leadership-- be created that would consist of Syria, Iraq, Transjordan and the Wesrern, Jewish part of Palestine. In return the Mufti promised Arab revolts against the British who were then predominant in these areas. One such serious revolt aganst the British occured in April 1941.

The Iraq coup of Raschid Ali in 1941, the Mufti Husseini and the Farhud... The Coup - On April 1, 1941 the "Golden Square" and the chief of staff of the Iraqi army staged the coup, and appointed Rashid 'Ali al-Keilani head of the government. Nuri as Said was forced to flee Iraq along with the regent and young king Faysal II. On April 3, a letter from the German Secretary of State Von Weizacker answered Haddad's letter favorably, but the letter arrived after the coup.
Rashid 'Ali stated on April 10 that he would honor the Anglo-Iraqi Treaty of 1930, apparently fearing British reprisals .On April 16, Rashid responded to a request for landing of British troops at Basra cautiously. He replied that they could land, but must embark immediately for Palestine or Egypt. The British began landing troops on April 16 or 18 at Basra, at first in compliance with Rashid Ali's conditions, and later in violation of the conditions, since the troops did not leave. The British played for time and made pretences of accepting the new situation. However, reinforcements from India kept arriving at Basra.
The Iraqi government was also trying to buy time, and entered into a pretence of Turkish mediation of the crisis. However, the Iraqi representative in Turkey, told the German Ambassador von Papen, that there would be no compromise with the British. Raschid Ali had already asked the Italians for military aid at the end of March, and likewise, Hitler decided on April 10 to send military aid to the Iraqis. However, the shipments took several weeks. The German foreign office got a report from General Keitel of a large shipment, including, for example, some 15,000 rifles and about 800 machine guns. Arms were shipped from Saloniki and through Turkey and Syria. The shipments from Syria were sent as a consequence of the agreement between the Vichy leader Darlan and Hitler as to general collaboration between Vichy and Germany. In the same agreement Vichy also agreed to allow German aircraft to base and stage through Syria on their way to Iraq, though there would be some pretence involved, so that the Vichy government could plausibly deny to Britain that it was assisting the German war effort. The French also rationed German fuel supplies, and as the Luftwaffe was unable to obtain fuel from Persia or elsewhere, this hampered their effectiveness.
A second group of British troops landed at Basra on April 28, and the Iraqis protested. On the evening of April 29, about 9,000 troops of the Iraqi army surrounded the RAF air base at Habaniyeh and the next day the Iraqis ordered that no flights were to take off. However, the Iraqis had insufficient force. The move was instigated by the "Golden Square" officers. Rashid Ali himself apparently wanted to avoid antagonizing the British and wait for supplies from the Germans.
The British strike back - The British struck to lift the siege of Habanniyeh, remove Rashid Ali from power and restore the pro-British government. Though they were initially unable to move from Basra overland, because of the weather and because Iraqis had cut lines of communication, the British were able to use the RAF at Habbaniyeh and Shaiba effectively, and began attacking on May 2. They had about 90 aircraft, mostly antiquated, but these included a number of Wellington bombers. . The RAF struck the Iraqis surrounding Habbaniyeh The Iraqis used their air force , very sparingly and not very effectively. At the same time, relatively small numbers of British reinforcements were ferried by air from Basra. Iraqi anti-aircraft fire and artillery proved ineffective. By May 6 the Iraqi force was defeated and the siege of Habbaniyeh was abandoned, though the roads were still blocked. The RAF also destroyed most of the Iraqi air force on the ground by about May 8.
German Aid - During this time, several German officers and diplomats were seconded to Iraq to oversee Luftwaffe operations and the arms supply. Dr Fritz Grobba, the former consul, now returned to oversee the arms shipments and a Major Hansen was sent to oversee the transfer of aircraft. Grobba allegedly distributed sums of money to both Rashid Ali and the Mufti. Raschid Ali got about 90,000 pounds, and the Mufti reportedly got about $10,000.

The British took Baghdad right afterward, and on June 1, 1941, Rashid Ali fled first to Iran, then to Germany. His associate Yunis el-Sabawi, who had translated Mein Kampf into Arabic, was captured and hanged. Another young officer who fought for Rashid Ali was Khairallah Talfah.

The only sympathetic figure in his boyhood was an uncle, Khairallah Tulfah. He rescued Saddam from al-Ouja and took him to Baghdad when he was 10, ensuring the illiterate boy went to school. Saddam would later marry Khairallah's daughter.
Exactly how his kindly uncle influenced him can be judged by Khairallah's political views. He nursed a passionate hatred of Britain, then Iraq's colonial overlord, and a fervent admiration of Hitler.
Khairallah spent six years in jail after joining a pro-Nazi uprising in Baghdad, which the British Army crushed in 1941. He later wrote a pamphlet entitled Three whom God should not have created - Persians, Jews and Flies. In this work, Khairallah described Jews as a "mixture of dirt and the leftovers of diverse people".
From Khairallah, Saddam imbibed this toxic mixture of nationalism and xenophobia. From his violent rural upbringing, he learned to distrust anyone, absolutely anyone, beyond his immediate family. Saddam the paranoid tyrant can be traced back to Saddam the persecuted village boy.

The rise of this pro-German government threatened the Jews in Iraq. Nazi influence and antisemitism already were widespread in Iraq, due in large part to the German legation's presence in Baghdad as well as influential Nazi propaganda, which took the form of Arabic-language radio broadcasts from Berlin. Mein Kampf had been translated into Arabic by Yunis al-Sab'awi, and was published in a local newspaper, Al Alam al Arabi (The Arab World), in Baghdad during 1933-1934. Yunis al-Sab'awi also headed the Futtuwa, a pre-military youth movement influenced by the Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth) in Germany. After the coup d'etat, al-Sab'awi became a minister in the new Iraqi government.

On June 1, 1941, in the aftermath of the British victory, a campaign of terror by Iraqi "soldiers and civilians" was unleashed... The violence followed an abortive attempt by one Yunis Al Sabawi, a Nazi sympathizer, to slaughter all Jews in central Iraq. (He was deported before he could carry out the plan.) The spasm of violence was part of a two-day descent into chaos now known in Iraq as the farhud [dangerous collapse of order].

The other candidate was Darwish Miqdadi, born in Tul-Karem. In 1929 he was expelled to Iraq after taking part in the disturbances of that year. After a spell he returned to Palestine and was re-arrested during the Arab Rebellion. When released, he fled once more to Iraq. In Iraq he did not abandon his nationalist activity; while working as a teacher and education inspector, he published his ideas. He participated in a delegation to Nazi Germany and collaborated with Rashid Ali. He was allowed to return to Palestine in October 1945, and in the summer of 1946 he succeeded Ahmad Shuaqyri as the Director of the Arab Office in Jerusalem.

In 1931, Darwish al-Miqdadi, a Palestinian graduate of the AUB, a teacher in Iraq and an ardent associate to most, if not all pan-Arabist networking of the 1930's, published his "History of the Arab Nation" which was subsequently adopted as a textbook for the Arab history curriculum in Iraqi intermediate schools. In this book, the Arab ideology and the pan-Arabist view of imperialism were so intractably intertwined that Arab nationalism seemed unimaginable without its opposition to the west. For al-Miqdadi, it was the Arabs' destiny to occupy the most strategic crossroads of world trade

Al-Banna was a devout admirer of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime. During the 1930s, the Brotherhood became more political in nature and an officially political group in 1939.
Al-Banna was a devout admirer of a young Austrian writer named Adolf Hitler. His letters to Hitler were so supportive that when Hitler came to power in the 1930s he had Nazi intelligence make contact with Al-Banna to see if they could work together. Hitler had Al-banna establish a spy network for Nazi Germany throughout Arabia. Al-Banna promised Hitler that when General Rommels Nazi tank division arrived in Cairo and Alexandria, the Muslim Brotherhood would ensure all of the British troops would be killed.

In Iran, the nationalistic and pro-Nazi regime of Reza Shah introduced a host of anti-Jewish laws after 1936. So great was the attraction of nazism on the Iranian Shah that Arthur S. Millspaugh, the adminstrator general of Iran's finances from 1922 to 1927 and from 1943 to 1945, testified "to all intents and purposes, Reza Shah handed over Persia to Hitler."

Unlike his other activities, he tried to keep the Saudi-Nazi connection a deep secret. According to sources on both sides of the Atlantic, it was Philby who advised Ibn Saud energetically to court Nazi Germany in the months before the war. The relationship was mutually beneficial. As one US intelligence study found, the Nazis "recognized that King Ibn Saud's help was essential for renewing the fight against the British and the Jews in Palestine." The Germans proposed that a new government should be formed in Palestine, under the control of Jack's old friend, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Further, "Jews who had settled in Palestine after the First World War would not be allowed to remain."
In January 1939 Saudi Arabia established diplomatic relations with the Third Reich, and Ibn Saud confided to the Germans that at heart he "hated the English. " In the following months he concluded arms deals with Germany and signed a friendship and trade treaty with Japan. Philby was pleased, especially as Ibn Saud concealed his secret dealings with the Axis from both the British and Americans. The Nazis also were pleased with the progress they had made with the king. They sent their best Middle East agent, Fritz Grobba, to meet with Ibn Saud, and even promised to obtain for him the most prestigious position in the Moslem world, the caliphate. The Saudi-Third Reich connection flourished, with their main link being their mutual hatred for the Jews.
The Nazis even promised to supply Ibn Saud with weapons, ammunition, and an armaments factory, and, according to some accounts, gave him bribes during most of World War II.
The king had many reasons for his secret arms deals with Berlin. The primary purpose "was to increase the flow of weapons which [Ibn Saud] had secretly been sending to the Arabs fighting in Palestine," in order to "check the Zionist influx that had followed the Balfour Declaration." Although he later claimed to be genuinely horrified by the Nazis' Final Solution , Ibn Saud's attitude toward the Jews was extreme, even by Arab standards. They were "a race accursed by God

Hentig called on Shakib Arslan, a Geneva-based advocate of Muslim activism and Arab nationalism, confidant of Haj Amin el-Husseini, and editor of La Nation arabe, an influencial journal of Arab nationalist opinion, to do the translation. Hentig insisted that the completed text be read by a "scholar of the Koran who will give it the sacred tone which will be understood and valued in the whole Islamic world, a world that reads the Koran." By November 1938, Arslan's translation of Mein Kampf was almost done. Its 960 pages were to be published in an edition... On December 21, 1938, the project of an Arabic-language edition of Mein Kampf published by the Nazi regime ended.

Islamism, fascism and terrorism (Part 3) - Asia Times Dec 4, 2002 [Marc Erikson]
Islamism, or fascism with an Islamic face, was born with and of the Muslim Brotherhood. It proved (and improved) its fascist core convictions and practices through collaboration with the Nazis in the run-up to and during World War II. It proved it during the same period through its collaboration with the overtly fascist "Young Egypt" (Misr al-Fatah) movement, founded in October 1933 by lawyer Ahmed Hussein and modeled directly on the Hitler party, complete with paramilitary Green Shirts aping the Nazi Brown Shirts, Nazi salute and literal translations of Nazi slogans. Among its members, Young Egypt counted two promising youngsters and later presidents, Gamal Abdel Nasser and Anwar El-Sadat.

Several of the political parties founded at this time reveal the influence of the Nazi model. In 1934, when the anti-Jewish Nuremberg Laws were promulgated, telegrams of congratulation were sent to the Fuhrer from all over the Arab and Islamic worlds, especially from Morocco and Palestine, where German propaganda had been most active. By September 1937, when a major pan-Arab congress was held at Blutan, with the struggle against Zionism as its main theme, the only European present was a German.
Before long, political parties of the Nazi and fascist type began to appear, complete with paramilitary youth organizations, colored shirts, strict discipline, and more or less charismatic leaders. Even some of the older parties were affected by these trends.
More obviously Nazi in form was the Young Egypt Society, formally established in October 1933. Popularly known as "the Green Shirts," it consisted of a paramilitary hierarchy of sections ...
...Their ideology and form of organization and activity remained, however, thoroughly Nazi, including such devices as fascist salutes, torchlight parades, leader worship [ther slogan was "One party, one state, one leadership"] and, most characteristically, their use of gangs of toughs to terrorize and silence their political opponents.
Not least among the borrowings of Young Egypt from Young Germany was its racism and anti-Semitism. This included support for Nazi philosophy, viciously anti-Jewish propaganda in the party press, and the organization of boycotts and harassment directed against the Jewish community in Egypt.

The mood of the 1930s was vividly described by Syrian Sami al-Jundi, an early leader of the Ba'th party, in an autobiographical memoir:
We were racists, admiting Nazism, reading its books and the source of its thought, particulary Nietzche. . . . Fichte, and H. S. Chamberlain's Foundations of the Nineteenth Century, which revolves on race. We were the first to think of translating Mein Kampf.

MICHEL AFLAQ was born in Damascus in 1910, a Greek Orthodox Christian. He won a scholarship to study philosophy at the Sorbonne sometime between 1928 and 1930 (biographies differ), and there he studied Marx, Nietzsche, Lenin, Mazzini, and a range of German nationalists and proto-Nazis. Aflaq became active in Arab student politics with his countryman Salah Bitar, a Sunni Muslim. Together, they were thrilled by the rise of Hitler and the Nazi party, but they also came to admire the organizational structure Lenin had created within the Russian Communist party.

Although Baathists are often referred to as Arab nationalists, Baath ideology goes beyond pan-Arab nationalism and Baath ideology actually views the Arabs as a kind of master race. Baathism glorifies constant struggle, the ideological similarity between Baathism and fascism is quite striking.

Pan-Arabism's Legacy of Confrontation with Iran By: Dr. Kaveh Farrokh
...Arab racism against Iranians...
Satia Al-Husri spawned a whole generation of men who advocated violence. One example is Sami Shawkat who is famous for his 1933 speech "Sina'at al-Mawt" (manufacture of death) in which he rationalizes mass violence and war as the way to achieve Arab aspirations. Tragically, this speech was widely distributed in Arab schools and in Iraq in particular. It is interesting that Shawkat teaches that "force is the soil which sprouts the seeds of truth". Although not widely known, Shawkat was a main force in the organization of the Futuwwa Youth Organization - a movement modeled directly after the Nazi Hitler Youth Movement. The Futuwwa set the pace for future Arab chauvinist movements, such as the B'aath party of Iraq and today's followers of Bin Laden. It is interesting to note that Shawkat's ideas became somewhat too hot to handle, even for the pan-Arabists - Satia Al-Husri later disowned Sami Shawkat.
It is worth noting that Sami Shawkat's brother, Naji, who by 1941 was a member of the Arab committee in Iraq (which had absorbed the Futuwwa), gave Franz von Papen (a high ranking German official of Nazi Germany in 1941) a letter which actually congratulated Hitler for the brutality that he inflicted upon the Jews.
History Matters: Past as Prologue in Building Democracy in Iraq by E Davis - 2005
During the 1930s, Pan-Arabists developed proto-fascist organizations such as the al-Muthanna Club and its al-Futuwwa movement, and in June 1941 they participated in an attack on Baghdads Jewish community.
The Farhud [United States Holocaust Museum]
The outbreak of mob violence against Baghdad Jewry known as the Farhud (Farhud is an Arabic term best translated as pogrom or violent dispossession) erupted on June 1, 1941. It was a turning point in the history of the Jews in Iraq.
In Baghdad the results of this policy were much more severe. On the afternoon of June 1, 1941, when the Regent and his entourage returned to Baghdad and British troops surrounded the city, the Jews believed that the danger from the pro-Nazi regime had passed. They ventured out to celebrate the traditional Jewish harvest festival holiday of Shavuot. Riots broke out, targeting the Jews of Baghdad. These riots, known as the Farhud, lasted for two days, ending on June 2, 1941.
Iraqi soldiers and policemen who had supported Rashid Ali al-Gailani's coup d'etat in April and Futtuwa youths who were sympathetic to the Axis incited and led the riots. Unlike in previous incidents, rioters focused on killing. Many civilians in Baghdad and Bedouins from the city's outskirts joined the rioters, taking part in the violence and helping themselves to a share in the booty. During the two days of violence, rioters murdered between 150 and 180 Jews, injured 600 others, and raped an undetermined number of women. They also looted some 1,500 stores and homes. The community leaders estimated that about 2,500 families -- 15 percent of the Jewish community in Baghdad -- suffered directly from the pogrom. According to the official report of the commission investigating the incident, 128 Jews were killed, 210 were injured, and over 1,500 businesses and homes were damaged. Rioting ended at midday on Monday, June 2, 1941, when Iraqi troops entered Baghdad, killed some hundreds of the mob in the streets and reestablished order in Baghdad.

Fascism and Antisemitism (19331941)
Iraqi Jews did not know the kind of *antisemitism that prevailed in some Christian states of Europe. The first attempt to copy modern European antisemitic libels was made in 1924 by Sādiq Rasūl al-Qādirī, a former officer in the White Russian Army. He published his views, particularly that of worldwide conspiracy, in a Baghdadi newspaper. The Jewish response in its own weekly newspaper, al-Misbah, compelled al-Qādirī to apologize, although he later published his antisemitic memoirs.
At that time the press drew a clear dividing line between Judaism and Zionism. This line became blurred in the 1930s, along with the demand to remove Jews from the genealogical tree of the Semitic peoples. This anti-Jewish trend coincided with Faysal's death in 1933, which brought about a noticeable change for the Jewish community. His death also came at the same time as the Assyrian massacre, which created a climate of insecurity among the minorities. Iraqi Jewry at that time had been subject to threats and invectives emanating not only from extremist elements, but also from official state institutions as well. Dr. Sāmī Shawkat, a high official in the Ministry of Education in the pre-war years and for a while its director general, was the head of "al-Futuwwa," an imitation of Hitler's Youth. In one of his addresses, "The Profession of Death," he called on Iraqi youth to adopt the way of life of Nazi Fascists. In another speech he branded the Jews as the enemy from within, who should be treated accordingly. In another, he praised Hitler and Mussolini for eradicating their internal enemies (the Jews). Syrian and Palestinian teachers often supported Shawkat in his preaching.

Learning Not to Love Saddam by Paul Berman, New York Times, March 31, 2003
Modern totalitarianism arose in Europe in the years after World War I. It took different forms -- Fascist, Communist and Nazi. But the movements shared a number of traits: apocalyptic and paranoid ideologies, a total police state, a taste for murder. Other versions of that same totalitarianism arose in Arab and Muslim countries in precisely those years.
One of the Muslim variations eventually emerged as the Islamist radicalism of Osama bin Laden, the Taliban and other movements. A second version evolved into Saddam Hussein's Baath dictatorship. The European inspiration for those movements is not too hard to detect, especially in the case of the Baath, which got started in 1943 in an atmosphere of ardent sympathy for the fascist Axis.
Kanan Makiya, an expatriate Iraqi intellectual and a main author of the transition report, described in his book "Republic of Fear" how these European movements influenced Islamic radicalism philosophically and organizationally. There was, for instance, the model of the Hitler Youth for the pan-Arabist Futuwwa Youth of the 1930's, which, Mr. Makiya pointed out, pioneered a paramilitary culture "as if presaging the Baath militas" in later years.

Pan-Arab radicalism was expressed in diverse forms in 1930s Iraq. In 1935 the "Muthana Club" was established in Baghdad and rapidly became a forum for the educated from all parts of the Arab world and a center for the dissemination of Arab nationalist propaganda. Nationalist radicalization was also evident in the formation, in the late 1930s, of s paramilitary youth movement [al-futuwwa] modeled on fascist and Nazi youth organizations, sponsored by the government and officially instituted in Iraqi schools

Nazism in Syria and Lebanon By Nordbruch Goetz, p. 54
Muslim schools that were directed by the Maqasid Islamic Charitable Association provided Najada a pool of potential members. As a Muslim 'twin' to the Phalangists, as the organization was often described, Najjada adopted a pan-Arab nationalist vision, calling for a suppression of all foreign influences. The ambivalent relation of such pan- Arab concepts to ethnocentric and racial nationalism became visible in its slogan 'Arabism above all' (al-'uruba fawqa al-jami').

"FASCIST MUSLIM GROUP EXPECTED TO LOOT TEL AVIV IN 1948," by Seth J. Frantzman [San Francisco Sentinal, 10 May, 2008]
On a pleasant Thursday in December 1948, Emilio Traubner, a correspondent for The Palestine Post, found himself near Abu Kabir, not far from Jaffa. Trenches and expended cartridges were strewn about, reminders of the fighting between units of the Irgun and local Arab forces that had taken place there seven months previously. There was a large Arab villa from where Traubner recovered a diary. It turned out to be the daily record of Yusuf Begovic of Pale, a town near Sarajevo in modern-day Bosnia-Herzegovina. In it Begovic had described his activities as a cook for the Arab Army of Liberation.
Traubner described who Begovic had been serving: 35 Yugoslav Muslims who had a good reason to expect to be among the first to occupy and loot Tel Aviv, were part of a group of some thousands who came to the Middle East to join the jihad against Israel.
What were Yugoslav Muslims doing in Jaffa in 1948? How had they managed to get themselves all the way to the Holy Land? What had motivated them? Who had recruited them? What was the Bosnian or Albanian connection to the Palestinians, if there was one?
There was a Bosnian connection: Haj Amin al-Husseini, the mufti of Jerusalem, had been in Bosnia in the 1940s. Had he recruited these men? What had become of them?
It turned out that in 2005 a Bosnian had given an interview in Lebanon to a Croatian newspaper and claimed to have fought in the 1948 war. The story began to crystallize.
The Long Shadow of Haj Amin
In October 1937, Haj Amin al-Husseini, mufti of Jerusalem and leader of the Arab Higher Committee, was hiding from the British authorities in the Haram al-Sharif, the holy sanctuary atop the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. On October 13, disguised as a Beduin, he fled to Lebanon via Jaffa. In Lebanon he received sanctuary from the French mandatory authorities but he fled again with the outbreak of war in 1939. This time he made his way to Baghdad disguised as a woman. In Baghdad in 1940 and 1941 he increased his contacts with Germany, offering to aid the Nazis in return for their help in gaining independence for the Arab states. The Italians helped him enter Turkey, and then he made his way to Rome on October 11. He met with Mussolini and then with Hitler on November 28. After the failure of various schemes to create an Arab military unit he eventually settled for recruiting Muslim volunteers to aid the Nazis from the Balkans, Bosnia and eventually Kosovo.
In speaking to potential recruits, Husseini stressed the connections they had to the Muslim nation fighting the British throughout the world: The hearts of all Muslims must today go out to our Islamic brothers in Bosnia, who are forced to endure a tragic fate. They are being persecuted by the Serbian and communist bandits, who receive support from England and the Soviet Union They are being murdered, their possessions are robbed and their villages are burned. England and its allies bear a great accountability before history for mishandling and murdering Europes Muslims, just as they have done in the Arabic lands and in India.
Three divisions of Muslim soldiers were recruited: The Waffen SS 13th Handschar (Knife) and the 23rd Kama (Dagger) and the 21st Skenderbeg. The Skenderbeg was an Albanian unit of around 4,000 men, and the Kama was composed of Muslims from Bosnia, containing 3,793 men at its peak. The Handschar was the largest unit, around 20,000 Bosnian Muslim volunteers. According to the Encyclopedia of the Holocaust, These Muslim volunteer units, called Handschar, were put in Waffen SS units, fought Yugoslav partisans in Bosnia and carried out police and security duties in Hungary. They participated in the massacre of civilians in Bosnia and volunteered to join in the hunt for Jews in Croatia. Part of the division also escorted Hungarian Jews from the forced labor in mine in Bor on their way back to Hungary. The division was also employed against Serbs, who as Orthodox Christians were seen by the Bosnian Muslims as enemies.
The Handschar division surrendered to the British army on May 8, 1945. As many as 70,000 Bosnian Muslim POWs and their families were moved by the British army to Taranto in Italy. The creation of Marshal Titos Yugoslavia at the end of the war meant that former Bosnian Muslim volunteers in the German SS units could not return home for fear of prosecution or internment. George Lepre, a scholar on the history of the Handschar and author of Himmlers Bosnian Division: The Waffen-SS Handschar Division 1943-1945 describes their fate: Those Bosnians who elected to remain in the camps eventually found asylum in countries throughout the Western and Arab worlds. Many of those who settled in the Middle East later fought in Palestine against the new Israeli state.
But first they had to get to the Middle East.
The formation of the Bosnian unit in 1947
The Bosnian Muslims, usually referred to as Yugoslavs in period newspaper accounts as well as in intelligence reports, remained in DP camps in Italy until 1947, when it was reported in The Palestine Post on April 18 that there was a request from the Syrian government for the transfer of 8,000 Bosnian Moslem refugees at present in Italy. Yugoslav quarters here say that the Arab League has written to all Arab states, urging them to assist these Moslem DPs, and that some financial help has already been received. Yugoslav officials say that they too want these 8,000 Moslems back, as they are the Handschar Division of the German Wehrmacht which surrendered to the British The Yugoslavs state that they view with the gravest concern the possibility of the transfer of this group to the Middle East.
By December 1947 a nucleus of former Handschar officers had made their way to Syria and were beginning to reconstitute their unit in Damascus. A report by Israel Baer in the Post noted that the latest recruits to the Syrian army are members of the Bosnian Waffen SS It is reported that they are directing a school for commando tactics for the Syrian Army.
No doubt the fledgling Syrian army which had been born in 1946 was in need of officers and trainers with experience. Emilio Traubner, writing on December 3, 1947, noted that the International Refugee Organization (IRO) was even convinced to fund the travel of Bosnian Muslims from Italy to the Middle East so that they could find homes since they refused to be repatriated to Yugoslavia.
In January 1948 Arab agents were working to recruit Bosnians for the fight in Palestine. On February 2, it was reported that 25 Bosnian Muslims had arrived in Beirut and were moving to Damascus to join 40 other Bosnians already there. A report by Jon Kimche on February 4 further noted that up to 3,500 were being transferred to Syria to fight alongside Fawzi Kaukjis Arab Liberation Army (ALA) in its invasion of Palestine. On March 14 a party of 67 Albanians, 20 Yugoslavs and 21 Croats led by an Albanian named Derwish Bashaco arrived by boat in Beirut from Italy. They were hosted by the Palestine Arab Bureau and made their way to Damascus to join the ALA. In the first week of April another 200 Bosnians arrived in Beirut.
A lengthy report by Claire Neikind on March 2 described the procedure by which Arab agents were recruiting volunteers among the DPs in Italy. Men between 22 and 32 were sought and in return they would receive free passage to Beirut and their families would receive maintenance. According to Neikind, 300 men had already arrived and 90 Croatian Ustashi were also making there way. Fifty-seven were sent to Amman. Between December 1 and February 20 a total of 106 were sent to Syria. Neikind noted that as soon as their families are settled, they enter Arab military service.
If one accepts merely the low totals from newspaper accounts it appears that there were at least 520 Bosnians, 67 Albanians and 111 Croatians in Syria or Beirut, as well as 135 Bosnians on their way to Egypt and 57 Bosnians in Jordan. Thus 890 volunteers from Yugoslavia and Albania were in the Middle East by April 1948, before Israels declaration of independence on May 15, 1948.
Upon arrival the volunteers found their way to a camp at Katana, a military base west of Damascus that the Syrian army had provided for use by the Arab Liberation Army being assembled to invade Palestine. Here they met their commander, Fawzi Kaukji for the first time. Kaukji, 58, was a former Ottoman soldier who had fought in the Arab Revolt. Hagana intelligence estimated as many as 4,000 volunteers had joined his army.
In December of 2005, Hassan Haidar Diab, a journalist in Bosnia, was able to locate Kemal Rustomovic, a Bosnian who had served with the Yugoslav volunteers. He claimed to have been a member of the Arab Salvation Army where 150 of his fellow Bosnians served under a Bosnian officer named Fuad Sefkobegovic.
The Role of the Bosnians in the War of Independence
Since the fall of 1947 Arab forces under Abdel Khader Husseini and other locals had harassed Jewish traffic and supplies moving from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. A mixed Bosnian-Arab unit of the ALA had been dispatched to aid in the siege of Jerusalem and this unit found itself embroiled in the battle for Castel between April 3 and 8, 1948. This battle was part of the Haganas Operation Nahshon which was intended to relieve the siege of Jerusalem. It is not clear what became of the Bosnians who fought at Castel. Some may have retired to Ramallah, where it was reported on April 16 that Muslim foreigners including Yugoslavs had taken over the best hotels and molested the local population.
The next battle that the Bosnian units participated in was at Jaffa between April 25 and May 5. Jaffa had been allotted to the Arab state in the UN partition plan, but it was surrounded by territory allotted to the Jewish state. The battle began when the Irgun launched an attack on the city. According to the Hagana, there were 400 Yugoslavs and 200 Iraqis defending Jaffa. On April 28, Michel Issa, the Christian Arab commander of the Ajnadin Battalion, received orders from Kaukji to move from the Jerusalem foothills to relieve the siege of Jaffa. On the same day, Hagana intelligence noted that there were 60 Yugoslavs among the defenders of Jaffa. Issa arrived in Jaffa on April 29 ; the commander of Jaffa, Maj. Adil Najmuddin, deserted the city on May 1, leaving Issa and his Yugoslavs. According to Issas telegram to Kaukji, Adil left [the] city by sea with all [the] Iraqis and Yugoslavs. Prior to their departure the Yugoslavs had been billeted at local homes and their unit even included a cook.
Kemal Rustomovic recalled in his interview that he had first been at Nablus, then Jaffa and finally at Jenin. Between the evacuation of the Yugoslavs by sea from Jaffa and their reunion with the ALA, the State of Israel was born on May 15, 1948. On the same day five Arab armies invaded Israel and the war became much wider.
The ALA became a disorganized and largely spent force by the time it saw fighting again around Nazareth again in July. During the fighting in the North, Kaukjis army of 2,500 men was reduced to only 800 and it was driven from Nazareth into northern Galilee. Rustomovic was one of these men according to his interview. The Post reported that the ALA still included Yugoslavs. On July 18 the Post reported that the British governments intelligence had acted to systematically sabotage [the] Palestine partition scheme and provided as evidence the fact that England was aware of the presence of Bosnian volunteers in Syria.
During the fighting in October the IDF conquered the entire Galilee and parts of Southern Lebanon. A report on November 1, detailing the capture of the Galilee, noted that some Yugoslavs had been captured during the fighting that had driven the ALA and the Lebanese army from Palestine and actually found the IDF in Lebanon.
The Bosnians and the 1948 war, strange bedfellows?
It is not known what became of the Bosnians who served with the Arab forces in the 1948 war. Rustomovic, who was born in the village of Kuti in central Bosnia in 1928, joined the Lebanese army in 1950. He served his adopted country for 30 years, married a local woman and had seven daughters and five sons with her. He was granted Lebanese citizenship, unlike the Palestine refugees who fled to Lebanon, and retired from the army in 1980. According to him, none of the Bosnians who had served in the SS ever returned to Yugoslavia. Some ended up in the US, Australia and Canada. It is assumed that some also settled in Syria or elsewhere in the Middle East. Today many would be in their 80s and 90s and it is doubtful that many of them survive.
In the 1990s during the Balkan wars, Arabs would journey to the Balkans to participate in war between Bosnians and Serbs. In a strange twist they would be repaying the debt incurred when 900 or more Bosnian Muslims gave up their homes and past to come to the Middle East to serve the Muslim Arab cause. The involvement of these Bosnians may be seen as an early version of the linkage of Muslim conflicts throughout the world. This has gained increased exposure lately due to the involvement of foreign Muslim volunteers in the Algerian, Lebanese, Kashmiri, Sudanese and Afghani conflicts among others.

Hitler in the Levant: How Arabs Reacted to the Third Reich in Syria and Lebanon
The whole Arab youth is enthused by Adolf Hitler, wrote Kamil Muruwwa, the young editor of the Beirut paper An-Nida', to the German Foreign Minister in Berlin. The year after Hitler came to power, Muruwwa translated Mein Kampf from English into Arabic and published it in daily installments in An-Nida'. Now he wants to edit the series as a book. But for this, he explains in his letter, he needs an additional 600 Marks. Therefore he is asking the German government for financial support in this endeavor.

Only one Jew survived the 1660 massacre in Safed by Arabs, Jews had to buy off the attackers via borrowing money from rich Muslims at high interest which were extorted with threats of further attacks.
* First recorded attack --in modern era-- on native Jews in Israel by Muslims, is the one in June 1834, Safed (the Plunder), the massacres and mass rapes went on for 33 days, (a provocateur, Muhammed Damoor, a self-proclaimed prophet, 'prophesied' the attack for which he agitated).
It was repeated in 1838.
* Egyptian soldiers massacred Jews in Hebron on the way of putting down a Muslim rebellion.
About the same time, Jewish houses and shops in Jerusalem were broken into and looted by local Muslim insurgents.
Throughout the 1830's, the Jews found themselves caught between the ravages of the Egyptian soldiers and the multi-ethnic Muslim rebels who fought them.
* [Beginning, major wave of] Egyptian Arab immigration to Palestine.
First census in Jerusalem shows 7120 Jews, 5760 Muslims, 3390 Christians.
A pause in population growth. Desolation, majority of Palestine is vacant. [Arab migration would resume later on, as Zionists begin cultivating the deserted land].
Travelers, writers, including C. F. Volney in the 1700s, Alexander Keith in the 1800s, described Palestine as desolate, empty, waste land. Mark Twain, in "The Innocents Abroad," 1867, wrote: "Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes ...desolate and unlovely..." (though Jews always had some continuous presence for thousands of years.)
First attack of Arabs on a Jewish settlement was in Petach Tikva (which was the first settlement in modern day Israel-Palestine), in March of 1886.
Incitement. the periodical Falastin - with its extremist Arab nationalist slant - was abolished by the Ottoman authorities because of its racist hate propaganda.
On Nov 2, 1917, The British issued the Balfour Declaration, promising a "National Home" for the Jews in Palestine.
The Mufti, makes his first most important [known] statement of hate and violence: "Nothing but the sword will decide the future of this country." He told a Jewish native of Palestine.
Seeds of conflict:
Arabs attack Jews in Jerusalem & in Safed 1920-1921. Better known as "riots."
During the year, 142 pogroms and 36 lesser riots occur against the Jews. It was carried out due to incitement by [later known as the Mufti] Haj Muhammad Amin al-Husseini who began accumulating wealth and power.
He was the de-facto "founder" of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
* All out Arab immigration (from Syria, Egypt, etc.) into the historic homeland of the Jews started mainly in the 1800's, however, a significant upsurge occurred since 1922 as Zionists changed the face of the deserted land.
President Roosevelt [in criticizing British White Papers restricting Jewish immigration] concluded in 1939 that "Arab immigration into Palestine since 1921 has vastly exceeded the total Jewish immigration during the whole period."
From a speech by John W. McCormack of Massachusetts in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1939: "as 150000 Jews and an equal number of Arabs have entered the country since that time, and there are still large stretches of vacant land in the country capable of development and settlement by large population."
* In July 1922, Churchill White Paper separates Transjordan from area designated for creation of Jewish homeland and links Jewish immigration to "economic capacity of the country."
As a continuing policy of appeasing the Arabs, 75% of the area of Palestine was taken away from the Jews and the Emirate of Transjordan was created, later to become Jordan. First the British, then the Arabs banned the entry of Jews from the area. This put those communities of Arabs in Transjordan and even the Judean desert who were of Jewish ancestry in an awkward position.
* The British mandatory authorities disregarded al-Husseinis record of instigation to violence against Jews and against Arabs [he was convicted by the British for his role in 1920s rampage] who didn't follow his dictating hateful line, and appointed him grand mufti in 1922.
First 'Arab on Jews' massacre in a clear attempt of annihilation, was the Hebron massacre in 1929, incited by the Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini who called to "Kill the Jews everywhere. This pleases Allah." That was the foundation of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The 1929 riots were accompanied by militant Arab slogans such as: 'Palestine is our land and the Jews our dogs...' among the details of the brutality, small children were tortured by their murderers before being murdered. Women raped. Old Rabbis were castrated with their students before being slain.
Arabs attacked Jews in Safed as well.
[The mufti ferociously opposed to any form of cooperation between Jews and Arabs, which the fledging Zionist movement was trying actively to promote.]
Ever since the 1920's, bigotry has been fomented.
[From a PEW poll as recent as 2009: 90% of Middle East views Jews unfavorably.]
In Oct. 1930, Passfield White Paper limits Jewish immigration to Palestine and forbids Jewish land purchases.
Arab immigration, on the other hand, flows into Jews' historic land without interruption.
* For almost three years (1936-39) there was a general Arab uprising & "riots" led by al-Husseini, thousands of Arabs were killed by the British, Arabs murdered & beaten Jews.
Among the highlights are: On April 19, 1936, Arab rioters carried out the 'Jaffa Massacre.'
In 1938, Arabs massacre Jews in Tiberias.
The Tiberias (today part of the State of Israel) massacre took place on October 2, 1938 during the 19361939 Arab "revolt" in 'Palestine,' as they went from village to village, while shouting 'Death to the English.'
Arabs murdered twenty Jews --among them 11 children-- in Tiberias after infiltrating the Kiryat Shmuel settlement.
* In May 1939, MacDonald White Paper strictly limits Jewish immigration and prohibits Jews from purchasing Arab land.
* Al-Husseini (Mufti) flees to Iraq and then to Nazi Germany.
The [non-Aryan, Arab] Mufti meets with Adolph Hitler (who --although-- considered the Arabs, an inferior monkey-type "race," yet managed to use him against the Jews) in 1941 [at times he's called the 'Fuhrer of the Arab world'], his parties & youth groups in Palestine are fascists, [since 1936, existed Nazi type "storm troopers" with the youth's oath of: "Life -- my right; independence -- my aspiration; Arabism -- my country, and there is no room in it for any but Arabs. In this I believe and Allah is my witness." The Palestine two Arab para-military groups: "Futuwwa" & "Najjadah" were active under the mufti at least up to 1947 -- cited in a 1947 CIA report document] he plots in his pact with the nazi leader, to massacre Jews on a big scale.
In his post-World War II memoir the Mufti wrote: "Our fundamental condition for cooperating with Germany was a free hand to eradicate every last Jew from Palestine and the Arab world. I asked Hitler for an explicit undertaking to allow us to solve the Jewish problem in a manner befitting our national and racial aspirations and according to the scientific methods innovated by Germany in the handling of its Jews. The answer I got was: The Jews are yours."
He agitates --in that year-- the Arabs, in Nazi oriented Iraq, to attack the Jews, many innocent Jews fall victims in the Farhud (pogrom in Baghdad), by the Arab-Islamic [Hitler-Youth group type] "futuwwa," led attack.
Later on, in 1943, he will lead a Nazi SS [Bosnian] Muslim army [to commit crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing] against the Christian Serbs.
June 1947, Blutan (Bludan) Syria. Arab League formation. A collective Arab "Jihad" (holy war) invasion by Arab nations is being plotted, to wipe off the Jewish-Palestine, soon to be called (again) Israel.
* Arabs reject U.N. partition for a "two state solution" [even Haim Weizmann's declaration of accepting a Jewish state even with the size of a tablecloth], the Zionists, however, agree, for the first time in (around) 2,000 Years, a Jewish (albeit non-religious, nor is its legal system Jewish) leadership is in its historic place back again.
* First attempt by the Arabs to 'eradicate' Israel, was right after its re-establishment (through the U.N.). The Mufti in 1947, when Israel was declared a state: "I declare a holy war, my Moslem brothers! Murder the Jews! Murder them all." In 1948. Five Arab armies attacked, with Azzam Pasha, the General Secretary of the Arab League announcing ahead, "This will be a war of extermination, a momentous massacre, which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades."
* Arab leaders 'create' the Palestinian-refugee problem, by urging them to leave, as they are (bragging) about to ethnic cleanse the land out of the Jews.
Ever since, these persecuted victims of Arabs ("brothers"), have been used as nothing but a toy, in Arabs' war against Israel.
[Arab-Palestinians willingness to play along, is one of their first self-inflicted wounds].
* Close to 1,000,000 Jews, indigenous to the Middle East (after Jews dwelling there for generations) are being expelled, as Arab racism grows. (The Jewish Nakba).
* Jordan occupies Jerusalem [May 28], divides the Holy city, expels ethnic-cleanses Jews, applies an 'apartheid' rule. It lasted till Israel's victory which liberated and unified the city.
1952 saw the first phenomenon in what now would be called terrorism, the 1950's 1960's Arab fidayeen raids against Israeli citizens & property.
[Worth mentioning, that when encountered by Bedouin --instead of Zionist-- guards, the infiltrators have not seen mercy, to say the least, 'Arab brotherhood.']
In October 1959, Arafat co-founds Fatah terror group, the "Movement for the National Liberation of Palestine."
Amids backing and encouraging the Arab Fedayeen attacks, pan-Arab "leader," Nasser of Egypt, surprises the world as he nationalizes the Suez canal, which was owned by British and French stockholders. While France and Britain had economic interest, Israel feared [again] to be overrun by Arab nations.
Ahmad Shukairy (the Mufti's aide during WW2 when they collaborated with the Nazis) begins the vilification of Israel at the United Nations, including (already then, yes that's right, who said, anti-Israel slandering has anything to do with what Israel does or does not?) with an "apartheid" slur.
He was also [the only known personality on the world, at that time who] "protested" the A. Eichmann trial in that speech.
In 1962, he identifies himself with Nazi groups in Argentina.
He had a long history of propagandists tirade, and was already arrested in Lebanon for anti-Western incitement in the 1930s.
The beginning of the era of the Arab immigrants (or their children) adopting the title "Palestinians" as an exclusive name (instead of plain Arabs or S. Syrians) as a political "defintion," with the creation of the PLO.
For example, Ahmad Shukairy (the first PLO chairman) in 1956 clarified to the U.N. that they are Arabs, not Palestinians, but by 1964 he & other leaders have changed and began claiming they are the real "Palestinians"...
January 1964: Creation of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), with Fatah as its main faction.
Fatah terror attacks started in January 1965, between 1965-1967: Numerous Fatah bomb attacks target Israeli villages, water pipes, railroads. Homes are destroyed and Israelis are killed. In July 1968: Fatah joins and becomes the dominant member of the PLO, an umbrella organization of Palestinian terrorist groups. On Feb. 4, 1969: Arafat is appointed Chairman of the Executive Committee of the PLO.
On Oct. 21, 1996, Arafat said "We know only one word - jihad. jihad, jihad, jihad..."
In July 2000, Arafat rejected a peace settlement [leading to a "Palestinian" state] offered by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak.
In 1967, Egypt's pan-Arab leader Nasser declared, a few days before the six-day war, "Our main task is to destroy Israel." Syria's Assad: "It is time to embark on a war of annihilation." Cairo Radio announced: "All Egypt is now prepared to plunge into total war which will put an end to Israel." Radio Damascus exhorted: "Throw them into the sea." Jordan's king Hussein broadcast this to his army: "Kill the Jews wherever you find them. Kill them with your arms, with your hands, with your nails and teeth." Throughout the streets of Damascus, Cairo and Amman the frenzied mob marched chanting: "idhbah, idhbah, idhbah, idhbah al-yahud" - (slaughter, slaughter, slaughter the Jews!) A. Shukairy "predicted" that no Jews in Palestine will survive...
The world is stunned at the miracle of tiny Israel pushing off Goliath Arab attack.
It also resulted in a knee-jerk resentment in the Arab world.
July 1968: First act of air piracy against Israel; El Al airliner hijacked en route from Rome to Tel Aviv by PLO terrorists.
Terrorism organized, among the highlighted first attacks: The Avivim school bus massacre in 1970, which resulted in killing 12 (9 of whom were children), and wounding 24.
The chain of Arab-Islamic terror picks-up, with targeting Jews in the area or in the world.
* On September 7, 1970, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijacked three planes "to call special attention to the Palestinian problem." - Dawning an era of international hijacking as a 'Palestinian struggle.'
The PLO, from Jordan to Lebanon.
* The PLO is chased out of Jordan.
It will start stirring trouble in Lebanon, instead.
To avenge the expulsion from Jordan, the PLO founded a secretive front group, Black September. Black September's first victim was Jordanian Prime Minister.
Jordan massacres thousands of Arab Palestinians (Y. Arafat claimed that Jordan killed between 10,000 to 25,000 in September 1970), for creating turmoil, attacking the government, hijacking airlines, etc.
The Olympics cold blooded massacre of Israel's sports team in Munich 1972 by Arab Palestinian terrorists, marked a turning point in getting the world's attention to Arab terrorism.
All in all, the Arab-Palestinian actions, since the late 1960's-early 1970's, already defined its path by anti-civilian warfare.
The same sentiments of 'total annihilation of 1967' echoes in 1973, (like: "Throw the Jews into the sea.") the Yom Kippur war takes Israelis off guard, Israel suffers initially great losses but manages to regain it's control/win over the Arabs, again, within the course of a few days.
Syrian Minister of Defense Mustafa Tlas told the Syrian National Assembly in December 1973 of the following example of "supreme valor" by Syrian troops:
"There is the outstanding case of a recruit from Aleppo who murdered 28 Jewish soldiers all by himself, slaughtering them like sheep. All of his comrades in arms witnessed this. He butchered three of them with an ax and decapitated them....He struggled face to face with one of them and throwing down his ax managed to break his neck and devour his flesh in front of his comrades. This is a special case. Need I single it out to award him the Medal of the Republic. I will grant this medal to any soldier who succeeds in killing 28 Jews, and I will cover him with appreciation and honor his bravery."
October 16, 1973, OPEC Led by Saudi Arabia, announced the Arab oil embargo on western countries as a strategic part of the 'Yom Kippur War,' to use oil as a weapon.
As Arab nations boycotted Israel, corporations and nations had to agree to Arab demands and not do business with Israel, Arab dictators, terrorist nations/groups, extorted financial benefits or/and political concessions.
The collapse in the oil cartel in the 1980's; the disunity in the Arab world; Israel's well advanced high tech market & Israeli consumer market has, weakened somewhat the 'Arab oil weapon.'
Racist Arabs' first campaign, of instilling in world's mind the idea that Zionism [which is about Jews' return to their homeland] should be regarded as "racism," in 1975, at the UN through the Arab nations' lobby, and forcing African nations (who many are still 'slaves' to their market and power) to go along.
Ever since, the dreadful idea of shouting "racism" grew as a pattern at any defensive action Israel ever takes against Arab racist attacks.
It relies heavily on an assuming image of a poor disadvantaged Arab-Palestinian being persecuted by a paler skinned Israeli.
Though, in reality, most Israelis are "brown," children of those that have been chased out by bigoted Arabs, in middle-east countries since 1948.
Note: Today, in pluralistic multi-racial democratic Israel there are also a great number of black Ethiopian Jews, very visible in security employment. There are no Jews at all, inside 'purely-Arab' Palestinian zones, if there's true ethnic cleansing in the area, it can be found on the Arab side, including in Arab-Palestine.
Palestinian Muslims (Arafat's PLO, Syrians and other Muslims), massacre 582 Christians in Damour Lebanon, in a very Islamic spirit of "Allah u Akbar!" and offering a "Holocaust to Muhammad." It draws a payback by the Christian Phalanges in 1982 in Sabra Shatila (headed by Elie Hobeika, whose fiancee got murdered in Damour), that latter incident has been used in Arab anti-Israel propaganda to blame the Jews for Arab on Arab killings.
150,000 Christians were killed during the war with Muslims since 1975, the Arab Palestinians' fault in it is major [backing Muslims against Christians].
* The Islamic revolution of January 1979 in Iran impacted the entire region, the oppressive Mullahcracy dictatorship set out to a Shiite expansionism with a vocal anti-western-ism spearheaded by proclaiming the U.S. as the "great Satan" and Israel as the "little one" [its off shoot] (more).
* In March 1979, after a great sacrifice by Israel's Menachem Begin in giving 'Yamit' to Egypt, uprooting its residents, almost two years after Egypt's Sadat came over (November 1977) for a visit in Jerusalem, a peace deal was signed between the two countries.
However, the ugly extreme anti-Jewish pro-violence incitement in Egypt never stopped.
Like every government in Israel's history, he declared the desire to live in peace with all Arab states. Begin agreed to return to Egypt the strategically critical Sinai 91 percent of the territory won by Israel during the Six-Day War in exchange for Sadat's promise to make peace.
By a strategic give away, giving over the land to Egypt, Israel's risks included returning to vulnerable areas used by enemies as launching pads for attacks, in addition, it also relinquished direct control of its shipping lanes to and from Eilat, 1,000 miles of roadways, homes, factories, hotels, health facilities and agricultural villages.
On June 7, 1981 Israel carried out the daring air strike destroying Iraq's nuclear reactor 'Osirak' in an impressive operation, coded "Opera."
This changed dramatically Saddam's Iraqi status as a menace. The enormous impact on overall regional stability. As well as on coalition forces' invasion of 2003.
After a long history of bloody attacks by Arab Palestinians based in Lebanon, Israel is forced to enter Lebanon ['Peace for the Galilee'] with an aim to destroy PLO's military capability.
In August 21, 1982 PLO evacuated Lebanon.
Israel is [initially] welcomed by many in Lebanon as 'liberators,' as the Arab-Palestinians have been prompting more violence between Muslims and Christians.
Sadly enough, the Islamic Republic of Iran founds a militia "Party of Allah" Hezbollah, its goal, establishing a clearly Islamic (totalitarian, oppressive) Shia state in the entire area, with the eradication of Israel.
Hezbollah will use terrorism against Israel, and adopt a tactic of using human shields in order to cause civilian casualties, 18 Years later, a group of '4 Mothers' peace activists in Israel will force its government to withdraw from Lebanon.
Background: Hezbollah --asides from being an extended arm of Iran-- is backed by Syria, it is largely funded through blood diamonds (in Africa), drug trafficking & other illegal activities (among Arabs) in Latin America, its bloody record in violence include: Bombing American & French peacekeepers in Lebanon & the US embassy in that country (1983), kidnapping & torture, bombing shopping centers in Paris (1985/1986), hijacking airlines, targeting Israeli civilians, stirring violence in Iraq, Afghanistan & Somalia. Its leader H. Nassrallah had an 'honesty outburst' in Oct. (published in Oct/23) 2002, when he said: "If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide." (More).
First Arab-Palestinian "intifada," attacking Israeli civilians in all methods possible, sending its youth throwing rocks [that kill] while, often armed adults hide behind these kids. Arab-Muslim Palestinian children are being indoctrinated into a death cult of Jihadism and Shahidism.
The use of children in the war --human bombs and human shields-- becomes a routine. ['Arafat's children']
Palestinian propaganda becomes powerful, as adults shoot live ammunition behind little children's shoulders, the TV picks up only the images of children throwing rocks VS Israeli soldiers firing back... a twisted around "David VS Goliath." [When a picture is not worth a thousand words].
Official Arab-Palestinian TV & religious figures incite to violence, it demonizes Jews as "animals." ("Supported" by radical Islamic theory of seeing Christians as pigs and Jews as apes).
[Examples of incitement: July 2000: The Hour [of Resurrection] will not take place until you will fight the Jews and kill them (Dr. Ahmed Yousuf Abu Halabiyah, member of the Palestinian Sharia [Islamic religious law] Rulings Council, and Director of Advanced Studies, the Islamic University, PA TV, July 28, 2000); October 2000: Kill them all... we wont leave a single Jew here. (Young Girl, PA TV, Oct. 22, 2000); (2000): "I am filled with rage toward the Jews. I have never greeted a Jew when I came near one. I never will. The Jews do not dare to bother me, because they are the most cowardly creatures Allah has ever created." (Mufti of Palestinian Authority, Ikrima Sabri); September 2004: The Hour [of Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims kill them. The Muslims will kill the Jews, rejoice! (Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris, Head of Association for Memorizing the Quran, PA Ministry of Endowments & Religious Affairs, PA TV, September 10, 2004); January 2005: and the rock and the tree will say: Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him! (Dr. Hassan Khater, founder of Al Quds Encyclopedia PA TV, January 10, 2005).
Palestinian TV - Suliman Sutari, before thousands of chanting fanatics. (July 8, 2005): "Annihilate the infidels and the polytheists. Theyre [Allah's] enemies and the enemies of the religion. Allah, count them and kill them to the last one, and don't even leave one." Little Girl on Palestinian T V: "But I march quickly toward my death." Little boy on Palestinian T V: "... And we swear to take vengeful blood from our enemies for our killed and wounded." Muslim cleric Muhsen Abu 'Ita told Al-Aqsa TV: "The annihilation of the Jews here in Palestine is one of the most splendid blessings for Palestine. This will be followed by a greater blessing, Allah be praised, with the establishment of a Caliphate." Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris: "Kill A Jew Go To Heaven" The Muslims will kill the Jews, rejoice!" From a Fatah/PA TV Nazi-Like Sermon in 2010: "Fight The Jews & Kill Them -- They Are Enemies Of Humanity & Allah"].
Palestinians (like Hezbollah) "document" every defensive action by Israel, where the Arabs manage to cause civilian deaths, as "Israeli massacres."
* Saddam Hussein, the 'Butcher of Baghdad' (nicknamed as such for his extraordinary record [in recent history] of mass-murder, mass-torture) invades Kuwait, the U.S. attacks Iraq, Saddam, in return, takes on Israel --for being U.S. ally-- with a rain of scuds missiles, fear in Israel and abroad (as it's still "fresh" - a merely 3 Years after the racist cruel pan-Arab leader gassed his Kurdish population). Miraculously there are no casualties.
* The Oslo agreement between Israel & the Arab-Palestinians proved to be typical of such negotiations where the demands & pressure is put solely on Israel - the one struggling against Arab initiated violence.
The result, not only did it slow down but it rather increased, Arab-Palestinian campaign of violence against Israeli civilians only stepped up mobilization, motivation rose, attacks intensified. Causing frustration among Israelis, Rabin is seen as endangering lives, which led a lone gunman to assassinate him later on.
* When the Oslo Agreements allowed the Palestinian Authority (PA) to print their own resources, it opted to use the Jordanian texts in their original forms. This was the start of the process of incitement. The starting mottos was rewriting history, de-legitimizing Israel's right to exist, "Palestine" is part of pan-Islamic nation.
The hate industry, instilling flaming-hatred in the young, has become one of the foundations in their overall child-abuse crimes, in a culture of using its children as weapons, child soldiers.
[Textbooks of hate:
Some excerpts from the Arab racism & Islamic bigotry teaching: "The return of the Jews to Palestine and permitting them to establish a Jewish State contradicts history." (Our Country Palestine from the introduction, pg. ix) - The book is dedicated to: "those who are battling for the expulsion of the enemy from our land!" (Our Country Palestine) - "There will be a Jihad and our country shall be freed. This is our story with the thieving conquerors. You must know, my boy, that Palestine is your grave responsibility."

* July, 1994, The Iranian arm 'Hezbollah' bombs the civilian Jewish center in Argentina [AMIA, the terror group also attacked the embassy in that country 2 years prior], massacring 85 and wounding 300.
The Iranian Imam Mohsen Rabbani responsible for the massacre, said 3 years earlier (in Argentina, 1991): "Israel must disappear from the face of the Earth."
The terror attack by Arab-Muslims on Jews in the diaspora, heightened the alert, internationally.
* Oct. 1994, Israel's Y. Rabin signs a peace treaty with Jordan, the Palestinian-Arab masses inside Jordan (who make up 60% of Jordanians) and in Israel/Palestine area are angered, Hamas vows to continue its campaign of violence "anywhere in the world."
[As with the "peace-treaty" with Egypt, anti-Jewish campaign, is relentless (more).]
A planned renewal of another wave of bloody violent Intifada was in place, an opportunity to "let it out" came about when Sharon visited the Jewish temple mount, Muslims seized the opportunity to "protest" Sharon's visit in "their holy place."
All is fair play to be exploited for terrorism against Israelis. It's own population: women, children. Even ambulances.
Arafat now had a "perfect" title, in order to galvanize global Islamic support, his people named it the "Al Aqsa Intifada." The Al-Aqsa is of course the mosque, which Muslims build on top of the historic Jewish temple.
It was boosted up by a staged video, therein an Arab boy Muhammad al-Dura --who as exposed later on as being-- shot by Arabs, was mistakenly pinned on Israel. Al-Dura becomes a symbol and an icon and motivates to more violence.
* The Ramallah brutal lynch of 2 Israelis --who lost their way-- by Arab Palestinian masses and its police in public square, the sheer animalism of mutilating and "playing" with their body parts while screaming in inhuman ways, revealed the real face of mainstream Arab-Muslim Palestine.
They were describe by a British journalist eyewitness: "they were like animals." The Italian crew who filmed the crime was threatened by Arafat's people.
(Suicide) Genocide bombings rise, targeting 'where civilians gather the most,' to kill as many unarmed Jews as possible.
Among the perpetrators of terror attacks: Hamas, (Iran's) Islamic Jihad, Tanzim, Fatah's Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade [still (2010) exist under Abu Mazen].
A rise of the use of children, use-of-civilians tactics "succeeds" in making Israel look bad.
* Demonization of Israel takes an open anti-Semitic tone at that infamous racist Arab control gathering in Durban in denouncing Zionism (an Arab writer described the Arabs as "racists cry racism"), the Arabs passed along anti Jewish hateful pamphlets at the United Nations.
First vicious successful propaganda of adopting the slur "apartheid" to Israel's equal democratic state, it followed the above "racism" slur on Zionism.
Arab Palestinian Marwan Bishara published a book (in 2002) "Israel, peace or apartheid."
The idea behind it was/is to equate any understandable action by Israeli security as "racist" and de-legitimizing its existence just as S. Africa was at the apartheid (segregation between blacks & whites) era, while in fact, there's no separation between Jews and Arabs (who make up 25% of equal citizens) in Israel, and Jews are required to get through check points just as Arabs do, security tactics are regional, where terrorism is more frequent, nothing "racial."
Not only are Arabs equal citizens in voting, being elected in government, but have often more rights than Israeli Jews, as they're exempt from military services without having an effect on their equal benefits as Israeli Jews have, there's also a policy of affirmative action to empower Arabs.
In 100% apartheid Arab-Palestine, no Jews are allowed to live in.
Not to mention the Arab, Islamic worlds, where real apartheid is rampant against minorities.
Worth reminding that it was A. Shukairy in 1961 at the UN who already came up with the "apartheid" false thesis.
A major boost got the "apartheid" slur, through a (2006) book by Jimmy Carter with a title almost identical to M. Bishara's, Carter who was always pro Arabism and pro Islamism on the expense of the west, including in Iran, and has been blamed for the change in that country towards the current oppressive Islamic Republic regime resulting in so many crimes on the millions of its citizens since 1979.
Even though, Jimmy Carter himself admitted on CNN (Dec, 12, 2006): "I recognize that Israel is a wonderful democracy with freedom of speech and equality of treatment under the law between Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis." Yet he accepted Arab lobby's money to write that hate book.
* Ordinary Arab Palestinians show their true face of "humanity" by celebrating --dancing, singing, giving out candies to children-- the 9/11 Islamic massacre upon 3,000 innocent people in the U.S.
* Iranian president Rafsanjani calls (in December) on Muslims to use nuclear weapons against Israel, and clarifies that one bomb is enough to destroy everything in Israel...
* The height of homicide bombers' frequency - between 2002-2005, striking from Tel Aviv to Naharia, from Jerusalem to Be'er Sheva, targeting mostly the innocent unarmed civilians, aboard crowded buses, at bus stops, markets, restaurants, cafeterias, family gatherings, crowds of children, etc. Leaving a long trail of blood of the innocent.
"Joy" on Arab-Palestine streets, dance & jubilation at every major bloody massacre the Arab-Muslims carry out.
* Pallywood --the term coined due to Palestinian-Arabs' fake images, fake "reports" industry-- steps up with "advanced" lies.
As the Israeli army conducts its anti-terror action in Jenin, where bombers, attackers operate from, the humane IDF is risking its lives, the careful soldiers go from door to door in search of weapons and wanted individuals, all that doesn't prevent the Palestine authority to stream false reports, of "hundreds" dead in a "massacre" that never was... some were caught faking a "funeral," they've even added dead bodies from a cemetery to the Jenin site to inflate the numbers at the "massacre."
After the facts [real casualties numbering 50 plus, mostly terrorists, not "civilians"] were finally revealed, no Arab-Palestinian representative bothered to apologize, PA's Saeb Erekat simply avoided the question by a [TV, ABC] reporter as to their claims of "500" dead...
On the contrary, the Arab-Palestine leadership have learned that it works pretty well: to lie, smear, before the facts come out, never ever paying for their anti-Israel falsification.
Thus, it will be repeated, again and again, by every Israeli action, to their advantage, still.
* Israel gives away Gaza to the Arab Palestinians, as it roots out Jews from their homes in a most dramatic (non violent) way, this causes not a moderation on the Arab side, on the contrary, Islamic Jihadi Hamas rises as "victorious," again [like all Israel's concessions], the Arab side's taking Israel's sacrifice for peace as "weakness."
* The patron of Hamas, Islamic Jihad & Hezbollah, the Islamic Republic of Iran's president M. Ahmadinejad (1) calls for Israel to be wiped off map, (2) he also claims that he "denies" the holocaust and (3) pursues nuclear weapons.
In 2007, he said: 'Israel, US will soon die.'
Note: Regarding Ahmadinejad's use of Arab-Palestinians. Iran's Islamic Republic is not very fond of the Arabs, in fact it has frictions with S. Arabia & it persecutes its Arab minority (true, the fascist regime oppresses all, but minorities are subject to extra "special treatment").
* To get a sense of Arab racism in most "moderate" countries, a PEW poll found in 2005 that most Jordanians viewed Jews unfavorably, none has viewed Jews favorably.
Hezbollah attacks Israel [its missiles reach deep inside Israel], it "improves" Palestinian tactics of using civilians, by firing rockets upon Israeli civilians (in major Israeli cities/towns) from among populated density locations, then, cowardly escaping the area, causing Israelis to fire back. The intended Lebanese casualties cause an uproar in the Arab world, Hezbollah comes out as "heroes."
Mainstream Arabs in Gaza go radical, vote for totalitarian Islamic party Hamas to become their "democratically elected government."
A major gathering follows, where thousands of Arab-Palestinians (with a Hamas spokesman) declare they want an Islamic Caliphate.
[About 'Caliphate' (Khilafah):
The intention, endlessly repeated, is the establishment of a primitive, messianic caliphate -- redeeming Islam and dominating the world.
For radical Islams goal is global conquest. The Caliphate: One nation, under Allah, with 1.5 billion Muslims ...It would do away with national boundaries and stretch from Indonesia to Morocco.
The 'Muslim brotherhood' aims for it and its Islamists who assassinated Anwar el-Sadat in 1981 decorated their holding cages with banners proclaiming the "caliphate or death."
It's Al-Qaeda's grand plan, as its chiefs revealed 'world domination design' to take over the world and turn it into an Islamic state the establishment of the "caliphate," an Islamic super-state that would be ruled according to a Taliban-like version of Islamic totalitarian with strict 'implementation of pure Islamic doctrine.' Barak Obama (August, 2007): "They [Muslim extremists] kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for."]
Christians, the tiny minority among the Arabs, who have been subject to persecution by the Islamic majority (Islamic apartheid?), especially since the reign of Y. Arafat, saw a major rise in oppression with the ascend of Hamas, a number of Christian institutions and members have been attacked or/and threatened.
The Jihadi party, has been involved in major anti Israel attacks, its charter calls for the destruction of Israel, its leaders often declare (including on "moderate" Fatah TV) their desire to annihilate Jews, a sample video showed a Hamas-nick vowing to "drink the blood of the Jews." In 2007 Hamas' Mickey Mouse' ("martyr") character is teaching Kids to hate and kill, in 2008 On Hamas TV, a toy rabbit who vows to 'eat Jews' has being used by Hamas to encourage Palestinian children for violence. Acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council Sheik Ahmad Bahr from Hamas, declared during a Friday Sermon at a Sudan Mosque that America and Israel Will Be Annihilated and Called upon Allah to Kill the Jews and the Americans 'to the Very Last One.' (More.)
A 2007 Poll: 75% of (all) Palestinians do not think that Israel has the right to exist.
* Israel's first Arab president. M. Whbee is briefly serving Israel's acting president. Israel is indeed a multi-racial, multi-religious democracy.
Vs. Arab-Islamic apartheid systems, where all minorities are oppressed..
After 8 years of firing missiles into Israel by Arab-Palestinian leadership - Hamas, especially targeting children (programmed at certain hours when they go to/leave school) in Sderot, Israel decided it had enough, it kicks off 'Cast lead.' Risking the lives of its soldiers in conducting operations against terrorists and weapons stock-piling inside Gaza, and warning the residents to evacuate (clear the way, and move to other areas) before hand. Yet, it was still condemned.
By now, Hamas is not shy in bragging of using children as human shields.
Arab Muslim anti-Israel propaganda picks up steam, as the current motto is to "make Jews look bad" so they can justify their hatred and create the foundation for their intended ultimate goal of genocide.
A supposed "peace activism" designed to help the Hamas in Gaza who have been blockaded (after their continuous attacks on Israel's civilians, in order to stop their weapon smuggling), has been organizing "aid ships" heading to Gaza and confront Israeli security, [incidentally, there are no "aid ships" heading towards the Egyptian border, though that country has the same blockade on the violent Gaza regime, for no one in the Arab-Islamic world cares about Arab-Palestinians, unless it can hurt Israel, a "sacred" goal by leaders, religious clerics, etc.], one such ship, the Flotilla had a major success in damning Israel's image, after violently attacking the Israelis (who came aboard to check for weapons), 9 Muslims died, an uproar against Israel came about.
Later on, the true intentions of the Islamists on board were revealed, as they were filmed shouting: 'kill the Jews for Allah' and in an earlier defying radio exchange with the Israelis who warned them of entering Israeli territory the response from the Islamists aboard the ship was "Shut up! Go back to Auchwitz!... We help the Arabs, Remember 9/11!"
There were also revelations that Islamists planned the entire event as "martyrdom."
The Flotilla was organized by the radical Islamic Turkish group IHH, tied to terrorism, Turkish president Mr. Erdogan who's representing the Islamic party (linked to the Flotilla), was looking for some time to break his country's alliance with Israel. He also objected to UN's sanctions against Iran for not complying with regards to its nuclear program.
Radicalization of Turkey, in an already volatile region.
In 2011, the UN justified Israels action on the Flotilla as well as its blockade against Gazas Hamas. Which infuriated Turkey even more.
* September 9, 2011, Arab-Muslim mob in Cairo, Egypt attack the Israeli embassy while shouting "Allahu Akbar." A CNN [which is never accused of being pro-Israel] reporter described them "they were animals."
It was following an uprising that toppled the Mubarak regime (where by, at the celebration, hundreds of Arabs, in public, sexually attacked CBS reporter Lara Logan screaming "Jew, Jew!") the rise of the 'Muslim Brotherhood" and anti-Israel incitement. A BBC journalist also described how he was subject to anti-Semitism in that country, during this period.
* September 13. Maen Areikat PLO's ambassador to the U.S. declares in Washington D.C. a future "Palestine" State should be "Jew free" (judenrein). This ethnic - religious cleansing (worse than Apartheid) plan causes a major uproar. Especially in light of the intentional REAL apartheid, Vs. Arab-Islamic constant use of the "apartheid slur" unjustifiably.
Note: "Palestinian" PM Mahmoud Abbas' such racist declaration of a "Palestine" State free of Jews (not even ANY Jews under NATO!) in Cairo on July 28 2010, as well as in Doha on May 28, 2011, caused less of a stir. Particularly, since this 2011 publicized event took place within days before a "Palestinian" plan for a bid at the UN for a separated [all new] State.
Actually, this has always been "Palestinian" stand, A. Shukairy on June 1, 1967: "This is a fight for the homeland-it is either us or the. Israelis. There is no middle road. The Jews of Palestine will have to leave. We will facilitate their departure."
In short, in 100 Words...
The Middle east conflict is about Arab Muslim racism, bigotry
F L A M E : Racism in the Islamic World: How can peace prevail in the Middle East in the face of Islamic bigotry and hate?
What role does bigotry play in the Arab-Israeli conflict?
Al Da'wa (The Mission), a prominent Islamic publication, identifies the status of Israel with the status of the individual Jew. Here, Israel is merely the Jew in macrocosm: "The race is corrupt at the root, full of duplicity, and the Muslims have everything to lose in seeking to deal with them; they must be exterminated."
Following are some recent statements by senior PA officials, all of which are flagrantly anti-Jewish and several of which incorporate sordid anti-Jewish stereotypes...
- Palestinian representative Nabil Ramlawi at a session of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights in Geneva, Jerusalem Post, March 17 1997.
The theme of Palestine as the grave of Israel and of the Jews in general is a persistent motif in Arab orientations toward Israel. Here the following claim, made by Dr. Yahya al-Rakhawi in Al-Akhbar, the organ of Egypt's Liberal Party, on July 19, 1982, is typical:
"When the State of Israel was established and...was recognized by many, in both East and West, one of the reasons for this recognition was the desire of the people in the East and West to get rid of as many as possible of the representatives of that human error known as the Jews. Behind this motive was another, secret purpose: to concentrate them in one place, so that it would be easier to strike at the right moment."
The Peel Commission Report stated in 1937 [Q: When was Israel established? A: 1948] that the conflict between the Arabs' and the Jews' aspirations is "irrepressible" and "irreconcilable" and that it is "difficult to be an Arab patriot and not to hate the Jews."
The hatred never subsides. It is developed and nurtured every hour, every day through all possible means. It is encouraged in kindergartens, schools and universities where the Arab children and youngsters learn that the Jews are their enemies. It is preached in mosques where the "Zionist entity" is presented as an eternal threat to the Moslem world. It is flourishing in refugee camps where the Jews are known as "the usurpers and barbarians that have expelled the 'poor' Palestinian Arabs from their homes." It is pouring like venom from newspaper pages in every Arab country.
New blood libels are created and the old ones are revived. The Arab world has an enemy--Israel. Anything bad that is happening is blamed on Israel. This is why, after the decision of the German government to reconsider its ties with Iran, due to killings in Germany of members of the Iranian opposition, a demonstration several hundred thousand people strong was staged in Iran under a slogan, "Death to Israel!"
Egyptian cleric: The Jews "are enemies not because they occupied Palestine. They would have been enemies even if they did not occupy a thing." [March 6, 2009 ]
They keep telling us that it isn't about "stolen land," and that land concessions and even the creation of a Palestinian state will not end the conflict. And we keep refusing to believe it.
"Egyptian Cleric Muhammad Hussein Ya'qoub: The Jews Are the Enemies of Muslims Regardless of the Occupation of Palestine," from MEMRI TV, January 17 (just posted), with thanks to Sr. Soph:
Following are excerpts from a speech delivered by Egyptian cleric Muhammad Hussein Ya'qoub, which aired on Al-Rahma TV on January 17, 2009.
Muhammad Hussein Ya'qoub: If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start loving them? Of course not. We will never love them. Absolutely not. The Jews are infidels not because I say so, and not because they are killing Muslims, but because Allah said: "The Jews say that Uzair is the son of Allah, and the Christians say that Christ is the son of Allah. These are the words from their mouths. They imitate the sayings of the disbelievers before. May Allah fight them. How deluded they are." It is Allah who said that they are infidels.
That's Qur'an 9:30.
Your belief regarding the Jews should be, first, that they are infidels, and second, that they are enemies. They are enemies not because they occupied Palestine. They would have been enemies even if they did not occupy a thing. Allah said: "You shall find the strongest men in enmity to the disbelievers [sic] to be the Jews and the polytheists."
Third, you must believe that the Jews will never stop fighting and killing us. They [fight] not for the sake of land and security, as they claim, but for the sake of their religion: "And they will not cease fighting you until they turn you back you're your religion, if they can."
This is it. We must believe that our fighting with the Jews is eternal, and it will not end until the final battle and this is the fourth point. You must believe that we will fight, defeat, and annihilate them, until not a single Jew remains on the face of the Earth.
It is not me who says so. The Prophet said: "Judgment Day will not come until you fight the Jews and kill them. The Jews will hide behind stones and trees, and the stones and tree will call: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him except for the Gharqad tree, which is the tree of the Jews." I have heard that they are planting many of these trees now. [...]
That Hadith can be found at Sahih Muslim 6985.
As for you Jews the curse of Allah upon you. The curse of Allah upon you, whose ancestors were apes and pigs.
That's Qur'an 2:62-65; 5:59-60; and 7:166.
You Jews have sown hatred in our hearts, and we have bequeathed it to our children and grandchildren. You will not survive as long as a single one of us remains.
Oh Jews, may the curse of Allah be upon you. Oh Jews... Oh Allah, bring Your wrath, punishment, and torment down upon them. Allah, we pray that you transform them again, and make the Muslims rejoice again in seeing them as apes and pigs. You pigs of the earth! You pigs of the earth! You kill the Muslims with that cold pig [blood] of yours.
And now the learned analysts will turn to one another and repeat once again that the Israeli/Palestinian conflict has nothing to do with theology, nothing to do with Islam.
Racism and Middle East Politics
... As the Imam said, 'Israel must be wiped off the map.' Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as quoted by Aljazeera
Anger towards Israel by its Arab neighbors is out of proportion to Israel's sins. What we are witnessing in the Middle East is anti-Semitism, not politics. It is Jew-hatred, not a dispute over borders or rights or Palestinian statehood. This present conflict is the direct result of Arab racism and Arab intolerance.
As long as middle-eastern Arabs teach their children to hate Jews, there will be no lasting peace.
We who once held a similar disdain for black people should understand better than most what sort of challenges the Middle East faces. Generations have been taught hatred. Generations have been taught that Jews are not human beings. Generations have been taught that every piece of bad fortune has Jewish conspirators at its heart.
That sort of irrational racism can't be eliminated by UN resolutions. It can only be reversed by sane and tolerant Arabs who are willing to speak out against their brothers.
And they better speak out soon...
I doubt that peace in the Middle East is possible. I doubt that an entire generation of Arabs will come to repent of their anti-Semitic hatred. Jews make useful whipping boys for the powerful but incompetent Arab leaders who can't make the trains run on time, or provide decent lives for their citizens.
Until Hezbollah and Iran and Syria agree that Israel has a right to exist, and that Jews have a right to live in peace, Israel needs the protection of the West against the Hitlerian plans of the powers that surround it. The West, which has learned a few hard lessons about the evils of racism, needs to come to Israel's defense.
Israelism defines its borders, respectful of alternative cultures. Arabism is rogue and misinformed, it believes that all cultures must adopt its ideologies.
Iraqi Author 'Aref 'Alwan: The Jews Have an Historic Right to Palestine...
'Alwan writes that the Arab League is to blame for the refusal to recognize the 1947 U.N. partition plan, for starting a war to prevent its implementation, and for the results of that war, which the Arabs call the Nakba (disaster).
He points an accusing finger at the Arab regimes, the Arab League, and the educated circles in the Arab world, saying that they had all used the term "nakba" to direct popular consciousness toward a cultural tradition that neither accepts the other side nor recognizes its rights - thereby promoting bigotry, violence and extremism. He also claims that there have been attempts to rewrite Palestinian history, in order to deny any connection between it and the Jewish people...
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict The Middle East conflict is clearly not about the occupation of the West Bank ... The root cause of the conflict is, and always has been, Muslim bigotry. ...
...place Israel's demand for security... for the sake of survival against two racist and exclusivist ideologies Arabism and Islamicism
There are two causes of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The first is Arab racism, which rejects any presence that is not Arab in its neighborhood; the second is Islamic intolerance which leads to the same rejection...
The question of Israel is the question of what happens to all minorities in the Middle East. The Arab Muslim Middle East has 300 million people. It has a very hard time treating Coptic Christians with equality, treating Maronites in Lebanon with equality, treating Southern Sudanese in an equal way, treating Kurds in an equal way, and dealing with Jews not only in their national expression, but even as minorities within their own countries. There was never a golden era for Jews who lived in Arab countries.
This is why I'm negative about the intentions of Palestinians. If their goal were statehood, they could have had statehood. Therefore, you have to give serious credence to the idea that their goal is not statehood, that it's more important to rid the Arab world of Jewish nationalism than it is to have a Palestinian state that would improve the lives of individual Palestinians now.
All minorities living within the Arab world are under siege. Tunisian human rights activist Muhammad Bechri has traced this to the "twin fascisms" his term that dominate the Arab world, Islamism and pan-Arabism. The first promotes murderous intolerance of religious minorities. It helps explain why Christians are under siege across the Arab world and why Sudan enjoyed broad Arab support as it killed some two million non-Muslim blacks in the south of the country. Pan-Arabism translates into endorsement of murderous policies toward Muslim but non-Arab groups and accounts for Arab support for Saddam Hussein as he slaughtered 200,000 Kurds in northern Iraq, as well as backing for Sudanese policies toward the Muslim but black population of Darfur.
The Arab world is not about to make an exception for the Jews. This broad intolerance of minorities is further evidence of how unlikely it is the Arab world will accept the legitimacy of a Jewish state in its midst any time soon. http://frontpagemagazine.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID=688A19CA-9922-45EB-A57D-B6E67266E79A
Racism in the Palestinian territories
Racism in the Palestinian territories refers to intolerance harboured by the Palestinian leadership, various Palestinian groups and factions, the Palestinian media and the wider Palestinian population. It has been identified in a variety of contexts, mainly of Arab discrimination, inciting hatred against Jewish people (racial and religious anti-Semitism) documented by US State Department and others, racial discrimination against Blacks as documented by historians.
In 1914, periodical Falastin, with its extremist Arab nationalist slant, was abolished by the Ottoman authorities because of its "racist hate propaganda."
After the British assumed power in the region, they appointed Haj Amin al-Husayni as Mufti of Jerusalem. He was the principal leader of the Palestinian national movement and a popular personality in the Arab world during most of the years of British rule. Sometimes called the "fuhrer of the Arab world", he was known for his anti-Jewish hatred, having an extensive anti-Semitic and pan-Arab history. His speeches were anti-Semitic to the core, like: "Kill the Jews wherever you find themthis pleases Allah." He met with Hitler and other Nazi leaders on various occasions and attempted to coordinate Nazi and Arab policies to solve the "Jewish problem" in Palestine. He is blamed by many as the main culprit of sowing the seeds of the Arab-Israeli conflict. "Authoritarian and racist (as he's called), al-Husseini opposed any compromise with the Jews."From the Wall Street Journal: "Muslim Judeophobia is notas is commonly claimeda reaction to the Mideast conflict but one of its main "root causes." It has been fueling Arab rejection of a Jewish state long before Israel's creation." "Authoritarian and racist, al-Husseini opposed any compromise with the Jews." When he visited Auschwitz he "reproached the Germans for not being more determined in exterminating the Jews." Holocaust and history denial
According to the US Congress report "Contemporary Global Anti-Semitism"
"In July 1990, the Palestinian Liberation Organization-affiliated Palestinian Red Crescent published an article in its magazine Balsam claiming that Jews concocted, The lie concerning the gas chambers. Gradually, throughout the 1990s, Holocaust denial became commonplace in popular media in the Middle East, particularly in the Palestinian Authority."
See: Antisemitism in the Arab world: Palestinian Authority about both: Hamas and PLO charters, official statements, incorporating racism, nazi theories, Holocaust Denial ideas.
In its 2009 report on human rights in the Palestinian territories, the US State Department noted that:
"Rhetoric by Palestinian terrorist groups included expressions of anti-Semitism, as did sermons by some Muslim religious leaders. Some Palestinian religious leaders rejected the right of Israel to exist. Hamas's al-Aqsa television station carried shows for preschoolers extolling hatred of Jews and suicide bombings."
According to the report, International academics had concluded that "the textbooks did not incite violence against Jews"
In its 2004 report on global anti-semitism, the US State Department reported that
"The rhetoric of some Muslim religious leaders at times constituted an incitement to violence or hatred. For example, the television station controlled by the Palestinian Authority broadcast statements by Palestinian political and spiritual leaders that resembled traditional expressions of anti-Semitism."
PMW which translates, documents Palestinian media and official press, from its documentation: PA Academic on PA TV said "Killing of Jews is Mandatory." There was "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" on PA TV, in the PA Daily: "Israel is Strangling the World," PA Religious Sermon - Hatred of Jews - an integral part of Palestinian ideology like: "Jews are monkeys and pigs, conceited, arrogant, disloyal and treacherous, and will be tortured on Judgment Day" and "Afflicting Jews is Muslim destiny."
The US State Department report (2008) on Anti Semitism states that "The potent anti-Semitic assumptions upon which Holocaust denial is foundedprimarily the myth of a world Jewish conspiracymake it an attractive weapon for those seeking to demonize Jews and de-legitimize a major basis for the founding of the State of Israel."
It is not anti-Semitic to criticize the policies of the state of Israel, but the line is crossed when Israel or its leaders are demonized or vilified, for example, by the use of Nazi symbols and racist caricatures.
MEMRI (whose [translating from Arabic] site is also cited in the above US congress report), explains that Jews are commonly referred to as "the descendants of pigs and apes, and as calf-worshippers" in religious sermons broadcasted on Palestinian-controlled television stations. Author S. Stalinsky quotes a speech by Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi, "one of the most popular imams":
"The greatest enemies of the Islamic nation are the Jews, may Allah fight them Blessings for whoever assaulted a soldier Blessings for whoever has raised his sons on the education of Jihad and Martyrdom; blessings for whoever has saved a bullet in order to stick it in a Jew's head"
The plans to deny Jews from Palestine has been called "Judenrein Palestine" attached to Mufti's ethnic cleansing dream Prohibition for Jews to reside as opposed to Arabs' right in certain areas have been labled as such. The ZOA has called it racist. 
In an article titled: Endorsing Palestinian apartheid, the writer asks "Why does the world accept notion of Palestinian state free of Jews?" 
The ynet in decrying the hypocritic illogical "demands," the intolerable inequity of demands within the "two-state solution" negotiations, how the "aparheid" buzzword apllied to Israel to delegitimize it and not to Palestinians where it belongs. as its leaders maintain that it must be totally Judenrein.
This demand is particularly ironic in light of Palestinian charges that Israel is an "apartheid" state. "Apartheid" is a buzz word, utilized spuriously to delegitimize Israel: anyone who has spent time in Israel and seen the freedom with which Arabs walk the streets and secure equal services knows full well that there is nothing remotely resembling apartheid here, which permits its Arab citizens (citizens!) to elect representatives to the Knesset and provides them with full health care and other rights is "racist" for insisting that the nation must be recognized as having a Jewish character, what, precisely does this make the PA which seeks to totally drive out every Jew from the land it envisions to be part of a future state? 
There's a wide controversy over the Palestinian Authority's prohibition --based on an Islamic Fatwa ban-- to sell land to [any] Jews. Punishable by death. Critics labeled the PA policy "racist and anti-Semitic." and resembling real Apartheid.  At one such case, an arrest by the PA of Arabs who did sell to Jews, the Jewish community of Hebron sharply protested, in a statement it said: "We call upon the government to accept the racial hatred prevalent in the PA."
In 1996, the Palestinian Authority's Mufti, Ikremah Sabri, issued a fatwa (religious decree), banning the sale of Arab and Muslim property to Jews. Anyone who violated the order was to be killed. At least seven land dealers were killed that year. On May 5, 1997, Palestinian Authority announced that the death penalty would be imposed on anyone convicted of ceding "one inch" to Israel. Later that month, two Arab land dealers were killed. A year later, another Palestinian suspected of selling land to Jews was murdered. The Catholic World Report wrote on these practices sinve 1996: "These apartheid style practices mainfested in 'hit squads unleashed' were unveiling, Ahmed Tibi, an Israeli Arab politician, reacted to the sale during a radio interview by warning: "Whoever sells his house to Jews, has sold his soul to Satan and has done a despicable act." from the rulings: "Any Palestinian who sells land in violation of this law will be considered to have committed national treason and will receive the maximum punishment. "Any foreigner who violates this law will be prosecuted on charges of harming the national interest and will receive a life sentence." 
During the Palestinian War, few, if any Arab Palestinians tried to sell land to Jews, but the prohibition remained in effect, Now that the war is over, the persecutions have begun again. In October 2004, Palestinian who allegedly sold land to Jews were killed.  In April 2006, Muhammad Abu al-Hawa was tortured and murdered because allegedly sold an apartment building in Israel's capital city to Jews.   Since the Mufti forbade Muslims accused of selling land to Jews from being buried in a Muslim cemetery, al-Hawa was laid to rest in a makeshift cemetery on the road between Jerusalem and Jericho. 
On April 2009, a Palestinian Authority military court sentenced a Hevron (Hebron, where Arabs are now the majority on the Jewish-owned land ) Arab to death by hanging for the "crime" of selling land to Jews in Judea and Samaria.   
Anti-Jewsh terror has been called "Racist terrorism against Jews" by Jafi. the exclusive targeting of any Jews and apologizing for killing a non-Jew, has been observed by Prof. Dershowitz who wrote about the racism of killing Jews in Israel: "they target every Jew, regardless of his or her individual political views, and they apologize when they accidentally kill a non-Jew (Arab), regardless of his political view."  NYTimes Bestseller's Michael Evans: "Make no mistake: Arab racism is killing Jews." Indeed radical Arab Palestinians openly declare they seek the killing of Jews simply for being Jews. The Iz-Adin Al Qassam Brigades, stated so in 2003 in their bulletin.
In October 2006, a Kurdish commentator argued that Palestinian PM Ismail Haniyeh had made remarks about the Kurdish peshmarga forces which were "racist" and could also be regarded as "inciting racial hatred".
Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice has been the subject of some vicious racial attacks  including an anti-black racist Cartoon in Palestinian Authority's controlled Press Al Quds. The New York Times reported in in 2006
"...racist cartoons. A Palestinian newspaper, Al Qud," which "depicted Ms. Rice as pregnant with an armed monkey, and a caption that read, Rice speaks about the birth of a new Middle East." 
On September 18 2007, Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV labeled U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice a "black snake."  In June 2008, Hamas's Minster of Culture, Atallah Abu Al-Subh, was interviewed on Al-Aqsa TV. He called her a 'black scorpion with a cobra's head.' 
According to British sourced, chattel slavery had "died out" by the Mandatory period "because of the difficulty of obtaining fresh supplies (of slaves)". Black slaves were owned by Bedouin in the Negev, who had a proverb, "Don't buy a black slave unless you have a stick; for slaves are not just filthy, but importunate too." Nineteenth century travelers accounts tell of being served by black eunuch slaves.
According to the South African politician Jack Brian Bloom, "Palestinian racism extends beyond Jews, as in the continued teaching in their schools of the discredited racial categories of Negroid, Caucasian and Mongoloid. In textbooks, the Palestinians are identified as Caucasian, as they have 'round heads and wavy hair.'!"
What kind of 'Change' - in 'oppressive apartheid Arab world?' - would be a good one?
What Needs to be done vis-a-vis the 'turmoil in oppressive apartheid Arab World'
1) ISLAMIC APARTHEID
Call for a halt to the massive Islamic apartheid oppression of non-Muslims in the Middle East, including such groups as the Coptic Christians in Egypt (the very indigenous, natives of that ancient land, who have been oppressed by the Arab invaders), Christians under Hamas-tan, even under "Moderate" Fatah, or any non-Muslims in Saudi Arabia (prohibition of any non-Islamic practice in S. Arabia, the banning of Jews' entry into some Arab countries), for starters.
Try and guess, why is it that out of the entire Middle East, Israel is the only country where Christian Arabs flourish, whereas in virtually all Arab countries, that community dwindles down so very quickly?
2) RADICAL ISLAM - MB
Stop apologizing for and sugarcoating the 'Muslim Brotherhood' who since its foundation (and later on with its founder: al-Banna's fascination with Hitler) was defined as clearly FASCIST, and have inspired the emerging of many Jihadi terror systems, resulting in massive crimes-against-humanity. Stress their written goal of creating the 'Caliphate' - The vision of global oppressive Islamic empire under Sharia law.
3) FREEDOM, EQUALITY FOR NON-ARABS
Free all non-Arabs from discrimination and humiliation in the racist Arab world, like: Blacks (including suffering Africans in Lybia, Iraq, Egypt, Sudan) Berbers, Kurds, al-Akhdam, etc.
In fact, toppling Syria's dictatorship would be even more of a wonder than Egypt's, that 'PRISON LIKE' tightly closed state, where Kurds as a major non-Arab minority are crushed under racist 'Syrian Arab Republic.'
4) SYRIA, IRAN, LEBANON, HEZBOLLAH
While on Syria... the very regime that -- together with the Islamic Oppressive Mullahcracy of Iran' is pushing its long arms, the terrorizing Hezbollah anti-Christian, anti-Semitic thugs to be included in the Lebanese government. Sadly, the anti-Hezbollah pro-freedom pro-western protests (after a long brutal bloody history of Muslims, including "Palestinian" Muslims committing atrocities on Christians) in Lebanon, have had very little coverage in mainstream media.
5) PALESTINIAN-ARAB AUTO ORCHESTRATED "VICTIMHOOD"
Tell Arab Palestinians to stop playing victim, stop playing with civilians lives' in order to "win" sympathy --just like their terrorist-Hezbollah buddies do in Lebanon-- and to get serious about peace, or their aid stops now.
The same self-destructive culture that in 1948 followed militant leaders to evacuate the land, to clear the way for Arabs' genocide of Jews, the same twisted mentality that keeps electing hellish leaders, again and again, the same cult which indoctrinates its kids into the 'death cult.'
By the same token, the Arab media should cease inflaming their youths via graphic images of dead kids, caused mostly by Arab attackers' tactics. As well as its anti-American incitement by parading photos of the dead and wounded by anti-terror operations by the U.S. and other Western powers.
A tip to you, international (media) cameras, try to avoid broadcasting of so called "Palestinian" casualties, and see if the [real] numbers aren't dropping down... In other words, without achieving their goal of "we are victims" mantra (which greased the tires of the anti-Israel hate propaganda), Arab kids' lives can be saved, literally, a whole lot of them.
The same goes to reporting any "stories" whose "source" is Arab-Palestine, notorious for mass-fabrication, also known by the term: "Pallywood." (http://www.seconddraft.org/
As a whole, this sick blaming westerners for Arabs' own errors is old.
6) "PALESTINIAN" MYTHOLOGY, TRUTH FOR A CHANGE
Since the pseudo 'Palestinian' card has been used again and again, falsely, it is an urgent time for:
Start exposing the true identity of the so called "Palestinians" - 'Arab immigration into the vastly desolate land (as described by travel writers, including by: David Roberts, Charles Wilson, Alexander Keith, Mark Twain, Sir Frederick Treves Smith Elder, Constantine Francois Volney, Dean Stanley, etc.) since the 1800s' would be a good place to start. Be sure to include such testimonies as that of Sir Winston Churchill about Arab 'crowding into the land,' and that of president F.D.R., that the overall waves of Arab 'newcomers' even exceeded that of the Jews.'
8) ARAB MONEY AND APATHY FOR ITS PEOPLE
Begin demanding some participation from Gulf Arab filthy-rich states to share in feeding their poor Arab "brethren," US and others do NOT have to do it alone, any more.
9) WOMEN'S LIVES, RIGHTS
Put a stop to the oppression of women, treating them like dirt (regardless of any Taquiyya spin messages, Islamic propagandists try to brainwash westerners), curb that Honor killing epidemic, reaching even the West.
10) ARAB [OIL] - INTL LOBBY
Convene, organize, be inventive on how to break the global Goliath power called: Arab oil, the most powerful lobby on earth. whose claws grips the West, the United Nations, and many other international bodies to be dictated by radical Arabism.
Not that oil is the only power the Arab lobby leans on, it uses the fear in the West of 'Arab streets, terror' to extract demands, non-stop. Nevertheless, any drop in need of Arab oil can weaken --though not totally cripple-- that Goliath, somewhat.
One of the first achievements the lobby succeeded, is creating an "undisputable" general assumption, that the Arabs --everywhere-- are automatically "victims" by default. No matter how aggressive, violent and criminal they are.

The Blind Hatred
From the Amalekites then... evil existence is most powerful sign of the eternal survival of good, which will prevail, at the end.
What is bitterly-funny is, to (affirm ‘persecuted innocent lamb’ when you) see the ever-so deep diabolical hatred to (Hebrews/Israelites/Jews) the Nation that suffered the most for sticking to God the Creator and not changing its faith.
Even the religion of “peace”, AKA Islam, has shed Jewish blood, humiliated Jews in the so-called “golden years,
see: “Islam and Dhimmitude: where civilizations collide,” by Bat Ye’or, Miriam Kochan, 2002, 528 pp.; “The legacy of Islamic antisemitism: from sacred texts to solemn history,” by Andrew G. Bostom, 2008, 766 pp. . Expanded in: ‘Radical Islam Vs World crimes against humanity’ 628-2011 http://radicalislamvsworld.webs.com ).
The very fact that anti-Jewism (antisemitism always referred to Jews ONLY, as noted historian Bernard Lewis writes in his book “Semites and anti-Semites: an inquiry into conflict and prejudice”) changes its excuse (and fake reasoning) at each generation, is best proof that anti-Semitism is BLIND.
When the Jew was not permitted to work at any work and forced to manage finance with its talent, ‘it’ BECAME an artificial reason (but when Italian bankers succeeded in charging interests and vastly expanded more than anyone else, they were not touched), when Jews did not defend themselves by (too-much) force, their “race” was the “thing,” how quickly the mask-of-reason changed when they try to defend and survive against Arab-Islamic hatred (motivated by Arab racism and Islamic bigotry, the so-called “conflict,” initiated in 1920 by the Mufti: haj amin al-Husseini who called to kill ANY Jews wherever he is (and made the infamous 1941 genocidal pact with A. Hitler), and continued by grandchildren of Arab immigrants, who are called since the 1960 as “Palestinians” and other Arab Islamic leaders promising to wipe off (as declared in their initiated wars in: 1948, 1967, 1973, in 1994 by Iranian cleric on Argentina, and recently by the Muslim Hitler of Iran in 2005 and in 2007) the 6,000,000 Jews in the Holy-Land, while hating and using the “Palestinians” as a ping-pong against Israel) and confronting human shields... it is blamed for Arab-Islamic crimes against its own population who use every trick to make sure their civilians die.
Never mind that Arabs in super-humane Israel, receive (unjustifiably) preferential treatment and ‘affirmative action,’ while most Arab lands are Jew-free ethnic cleansed, and so plans the Apartheid-Arab-Islamic-Palestine “state” to be...
Anti-Semitism which is blind, seeks (or invents) the negative in a rare half-Jew, but never admits to the average positive of most 100% Jews.
Some pointers: 1) Jews make up a very high percentage of the ‘giving’ population, most American Jewish donations go to non-Jewish benevolent causes.
2) Don't underestimate the disproportionate high percentage of Jews involved in aiding the poor and curing the less-fortunate, worldwide.
The Menace of Islamic Fascist Republic of Iran: its ideology, its actions and threats
Since its Islamic Revolution, it is been regraded as one of the most oppressive regimes on earth.
A special report has been published: Report on Crimes Against Humanity Committed in Iran on the Orders of Mr. Ali Khamenei, supreme leader of the Islamic Republic.
In the early 1980s Seyyed Asadollah Lajevardi earned the nickname "the Butcher of Evin." A highlighted period was the summer 1988 prisoners massacre of upto 30,000 people, following a "fatwa" by Ayatollah Khomeini.
Iran's terrible human rights record has been widely documented. There was more scrutiny at the 2009 brutal crackdown.
Notwithstading Iran's tightly-closed prison satate. Reports still come out. For example, in 2010, UN anti-racism panel finds Iran discriminating against Arabs, Kurds, other ethnic minorities There's that bogus pro- Palestinian politics of the reigning regime degenerates into an anti-Jewish language. Iranian racism is particularly evident in Tehran, where similar racist negativity is directed at provincial Iranians- the Isfahanis, the Rashtis, the Azaris, the Kurds, the Lors, the Baluchis, the Arabs, or what the Tehranis in moments of unsurpassed whitewashed racism call dehatis...
Real (not as in the slanderous slur) Apartheid
From the U.S. Congress in 1998: In Iran, those who believe in the Baha'i faith are forcibly repressed by the Iranian Government. They are denied the right to assemble and elect their religious officials, their property is confiscated and they are denied basic civil and legal rights. More than 200 Baha'is have been killed in Iran since 1989. Christians and Jews likewise face persecution in Iran, including discrimination, imprisonment, and death. One Christian human rights groups describes the treatment of Christians and Jews as "Religious apartheid."
Since the Islamic Revolution veritable apartheid was created an 'Islamic apartheid.'
Iran has long been accused of Anti-Arab disctimination, persecution and apartheid.
UNPO declared Iran an, "Unknown Apartheid," in its bigotry towards minorities.
Iranian students say: The Islamic Republic is 'a political apartheid.'
Bahais decry: "String Of Human Rights Atrocities, Apartheid Policies Against Iranian Baha'is.
Iranians speak up: "Islamic apartheid Regime in Iran can't stop our wish for freedom."
The atrocities of Islamic Apartheid has been around long before they took power in Iran in 1979 Revolution.
There's a deep religious apartheid in Iran.
A 'special' anti-Christian apartheid. and an anti-Bahai bigotry which includes an academic apartheid.
