The Nazi-Islamic alliance is hardly new, except that it is widely unknown, having been successfully scrubbed from history books and media reports. I have written of it extensively here (scroll this link):
"Palestinian Leader Farouq Qaddoumi: We Supported The Nazis In WWII," MEMRI, December 18, 2013
Following are excerpts from the interview:
Interviewer: "Were you sympathetic with Nazi Germany in WWII?"
Farouq Qaddoumi: "I don't think it would be wrong to say that we were enthusiastic supporters of Germany."
Interviewer: "You supported Hitler and his people."
Farouq Qaddoumi: "Germany, yes. This was common among the Palestinians, especially since our enemy was Zionism, and we saw that Zionism was hostile to Germany, and vice versa."
Interviewer: "There was a Nazi radio station in Arabic at the time, right?"
Farouq Qaddoumi: "I recall something like that."
The Mufti was the Muslim Hitler. He continually coaxed, urged, demanded Jewish annihilation.
Journalist Maurice Pearlman, who reviewed the records of Eichmann's meetings with the Mufti at the trials for Nazi leader in Nuremberg, wrote a book entitled THE MUFTI OF JERUSALEM, published in 1947, in which Pearlman noted that the Mufti instructed Eichmann that the way in which the Nazis could best persecute the Jews was to do so slowly and in stages, so as to catch them unaware of the next stage of persecution.
Eichmann offered reciprocal hospitality for the Mufti in Nazi Germany. In 1939, with the outbreak of World War II, the British government, then presiding over the mandatory government in Palestine, expelled the Mufti, who chose to travel to fascist Italy and then to Berlin, where he remained for the remainder of World War II. Hitler provided the Mufti with a radio station in Berlin from where he propagated the Nazi message in the Arabic language, and the Mufti was assigned the task of organizing a Moslem contingent of the Nazi murder machine which killed Jews throughout Yugoslavia.
The Mufti obtained Hitler's assurance in November 1941 that after dealing with the Jews of Europe, Hitler would treat the Jews of the Middle East similarly.
Husseini promised the support of the Arabs for the Nazi war effort. In Berlin, Husseini used the money confiscated from Jewish victims, to finance pro-Nazi activities in the Middle East and to raise 20,000 Muslim troops in Bosnia, in the Hanjar Waffen S.S., who murdered tens of thousands of Serbs and Jews in the Balkans and served as police auxiliary in Hungary.
Heinreich Himmler, the chief administrator of the Nazi death machine, brought the Mufti on numerous tours of the death camps. Most recently, a book was written about the ZunderKommandos, whose task it was to remove the dead Jews from the crematoria.
One of those ZunderKommandos remarked in an interview with a researcher that he witnessed a man with a turban whom the Nazi camp commandant brought to witness the gassing of he Jews and the removal of the bodies from the gas chambers, the stripping of their valuables and the burning of their remains. The Nazi told the ZunderKommando that this was the Mufti of Jerusalem. During the final months of the war, the Mufti actually lived in Hitler's bunker. Although arrested by the French army, the Mufti was somehow able to escape to Cairo. The Mufti was later sentenced to death in absentia in Yugoslavia.
After Adolf Eichmann was abducted and brought to Jerusalem for trial in 1961, Golda Meir, then the foreign minister of Israel, demanded that the Mufti also be brought to trial for the same crime of genocide against the Jewish people. (more here)
Nazis adopted the Muslim idea of Jihad -- total destruction and complete annihilation in the spirit of a Holy War.
According to the Arab Higher Committee:
In virtually identical letters, the Mufti, in the summer of 1944, approached Germany, Roumania, Bulgaria, and Hungary to speed the extermination of the Jews by sending them to Poland where the Nazi death chambers were located.
Instead of being deported to Palestine [nee Israel] as was intended, the Mufti demanded 400,00o Jews be sent to their death. That's not merely a collaborator, that's partner with great influence and power. (more here)
