How Husseini Turned Muslims Into Jew Haters

Of the two religions, Muslims of the Middle East had treated us Jews far better than the Christians of Europe up to the time of World War 2.  From the time we entered Europe after 70 CE till then, we were slaughtered at whim from the Christian Crusaders, from anyone who thought they could get away with it.  Countries invited us there because of skills we had, then tossed us out when it suited them. Jews were constantly hassled and threatened to convert to Christianity or leave the country.  For instance, Jews in European towns were massacred by the German Crusaders in 1096.  Jews in England were expulsed in 1290.  Jews in France were expulsed in 1306.  Jews in Austria were expelled in 1421.  Jews in Lithuania  were expelled in 1495, then they returned and received a charter in 1529  guaranteeing freedom of movement and employment.  During WWI, 100,000 Jews were expelled or emigrated to the Russian interior.   Life was like a Poker game.

In 1196, 2 Christian Crusaders broke into  Eleazar ben Judah's house in Worms, Germany.  Before his very eyes, Eleazar saw his wife and 2 daughters  murdered by them.   Eleazar didn't turn against religion and become a rebel. In 1201 he became a rabbi.   He continued to teach a doctrine of love of humanity, so don't tell me that Jews don't know how to love.
Russia kept Jews in the Pale of Settlement from 1721 on by the decree from Catherine II
, like one gigantic ghetto they shared with Christians, but weren't allowed to live in Russia and the Christians could.  This was the scene of pogrom after pogrom against Jews.Golda Meier(1898-1978) born in Kiev, Ukraine, one of the countries of the Pale,   lived through one and somehow was able to make her way to the USA where she lived before moving to Palestine in 1921.

  On the other hand, Muslims allowed us in Muslim countries with restrictions.  We were treated as 2nd class citizens called dhimmis and had a ton of rules of what we couldn't do like other people, but sometimes we did pretty well.  The best thing was that we were allowed to remain Jewish.  Whatever changed the more peaceful attitude of Muslims to hate Jews so much?
Husseini and Hitler 1941 
It started with one Muslim:  Haj Amin al-Husseini (1893-1974) , the Sherif of Jerusalem and called the Grand Mufti.  He was a big fish in a little pond. The English Jew, Sir Herbert Samuel- the high commissioner, appointed him mufti of Jerusalem in 1921.   Husseini met with Hitler in 1941 when this picture was taken.
He went against Emir Feisal (1885-1933), who was THE leader of the Muslims of the whole Middle East and the man who accepted Jews back into the fold of the Middle East at the time of the League of Nations in their plans involving the end of WWI.  Feisal went on to become King of Iraq and it was he who led the Arab rising against Turkey from 1916-1918 and was the king of Syria.
He had met with Dr. Weizmann, leader of the Jewish contingent  in Transjordan in 1918 and Paris in 1919 where they reached an agreement on mutual aid, though it was conditional on the British promises to the Arabs.  He was expulsed from Syria by the French in 1920.
"Husseini  turned out to be a vile Arab nationalist,  an unscrupulous provocateur and indefatigable schemer with delusions of grandeur who spent much of the war in Berlin," not fighting with England like Abdullah I and his men, who had taken Transjordan in 1948 for himself.    "From Germany Husseini  positioned himself as a pan-Arab leader and kept inciting vociferously against the Jews of Palestine" and what else he did was inexcusable.  He was looking for help from Hitler to get rid of the Jews.  What he did was to push Hitler, who didn't need much prodding in the first place, toward a radical solution to the "Jewish Question."  Now why Hitler used the Jews as scapegoats has been discussed in many venues, from he had a Jewish girlfriend who laughed at him to a Jew wouldn't buy his painting.  Probably it was his Catholic upbringing and continuing hatred of Christians against Jews, like what had been going on since the Spanish Inquisition, and that hatred probably stemmed from Jesus' being crucified and blaming the Jews for it. Germany was having financial difficulties as governments will do who choose to waste their money, and Jews were good business people who lasted longer than others in staying in business.   Jesus wasn't the only one who had to bear a cross on his back.  We've been doing it ever since then.
Amin al-Husseini and  Joachim von Ribbentrop in Berlin, November 20, 1941
  Husseini  insisted that a German-Muslim alliance would be jeopardized if Jewish refugees were allowed to go to Palestine, as he knew of the League of Nations meeting  after WWI and the  plans to turn Palestine over to them. He was afraid he'd lose his position and power in Jerusalem.  To him, the only solution was that Hitler would kill them all.  What he succeeded in stopping at this point was Jewish immigration from the Balkans.  Because of that, many Jews died.                                                                                
Qaradawi (b: September 9, 1926) , Muslim preacher from Egypt and leader in the Muslim Brotherhood, now in Qatar-his prayer broadcast over al Jazeera TV  in 2009-O Allah, take your enemies, the enemies of Islam. O Allah, take the Jews, the treacherous aggressors. O Allah, take this profligate, cunning, arrogant band of people. O Allah, they have spread much tyranny and corruption in the land. Pour Your wrath upon them, O our God. Lie in wait for them. O Allah, You annihilated the people of Thamoud (Sodom) at the hand of a tyrant, and You annihilated the people of 'Aad with a fierce, icy gale, and You destroyed the Pharaoh and his soldiers – O Allah, take this oppressive, tyrannical band of people. O Allah, take this oppressive, Jewish Zionist band of people. O Allah, do not spare a single one of them. O Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one.  Speaking to the small anti-Zionist Neturei Karta sect , he cushions his words with "Muslims are against the expansionist, oppressive Zionist movement."  He thinks Jews living in Israel are Zionists and only Neturei Karta Jews are real Jews.  "He has used the antisemitic Protocols of the Elders of Zion in its theological deliberations.
Husseini  also provided radio broadcasts in Arabic to his brothers and  sounded just like Qaradawi when he exploded with "Kill Jews wherever you find them, for the love of Allah!"  Some Muslims responded.  In June 1941, rioters in Baghdad, incited by the broadcasts, Muslim mobs murdered about 180 Jews in their community  in the FARHUD MASSACRE..

Now, Hitler felt that Arabs, Turks and Iranians were racially inferior just like they did the Jews.  After all, we were Semites.  Something attracted Hitler and other Nazis to the Muslim religion, however.  These killers certainly didn't think much of Christianity, which they "despised as the feeble, emasculating product of malignant Jewish influence."  They were not about to turn the other cheek.

They read up on religions and" Hitler and the SS chief Heinrich Himmler, another lapsed Catholic, extolled the virtues of Islam, which they viewed as a suitably virile religion with a warrior's creed."  Mussolini also was an admirer and came close to converting.  The Nazis labeled these people as "Good Semites and Honorary Aryans."   The Nazi propaganda damned Jews and used the term-anti-Jewish instead of anti-Semitic because of their plot to make use of the Muslims in their attacks against Jews.  .
Muslim soldiers of the Handschar Waffen SSreading a pamphlet written by Grand Mufti of JerusalemHaj Amin al-Husseini titled 'Islam and Judaism.' They wear distinctive Handschar tarbooshheadgear, and insignias (scimitars and swastikas) on their lapels.tion
Germany had a Ministry of Propaganda, and Joseph Goebbels was the Minister.  He had the newspapers depict Islam in a positive light and as victims of scheming Jews and Allied imperialists.  He had them emphasize the closeness between Nazi ideology and Islamic theology.  Muslims in Bosnia and SE Europe were now racially valuable people.  They were even allowed to join the SS where they could really kill Jews.                                                                              
Husseini and Himmler 1943 
Himmler admired Mohammed, who was like a General and constantly talked about his virtues of Islam.  The Nazis helped Mussolini build up religious resentment against the Allies who he pictured as "desecraters of Muslim shrines and enablers of "Parasitic" Jews.

Muslims involved in this Nazi hatred was Alimjan Idris, Imam of Tartar origins from Central Asia.  He headed an SS school for Islamic preachers in Dresden, the capital of the German state of Saxony, where he taught that  "Jews were  the most despicable repulsive and corrupting people on earth."    Yunus Bahri, Iraqi journalist, who hosted an incendiary program on Radio Berlin in Arabic.   Of course there was Amin al-Husseini, who saw eye to eye with the Nazi propaganda about Jews and their similar world view  which was that Jews were the villains of all time, the world's eternal enemy.

The Muslim Brotherhood's founder was Hassan al-Banna who admired Hitler.  Saddam Hussein's Ba'ath Party nationalists used their Nazi National Socialist ideas and propaganda.

By 1943, the Nazis weren't doing so well as far as the war went, but in the Caucasus, the Muslims gave them the old hero's welcome and cheered them on with "Hitler Effendi".  They looked at the Nazis as liberators from the Russians.  Germans allowed them to reopen their mosques and display  their religious festival decorations  with Islamic and Nazi symbols next to each other. They knew how to use these people and exploit them.  Hitler told his generals to use Muslims for the Wehrmacht SS and so hundreds of thousands of them, Tartars, Azeris, Chechens, Turkestanis, Uzbeks, Khazaks, Bosnians, Herzegovinians, etc. were put into Islamic auxiliary units as well as the Ostlegionen battalions and a 20,000 men Bosnian SS Division.  Muslims from the Soviet Union who were released from POW camps would serve as the vanguard of a homegrown Islamist rebellion against the Soviet nation gladly as they viewed Russians as  a godless people.  Propaganda leaflets  read, "Only Germany can save the world, and she will also save you and your religion from subjugation under the red flag," which also cited Koranic verses that instructed the faithful to fight unbelievers.

The result was that thousands of Muslims fought for Hitler and were involved in the gruesome atrocities and massacres of Jews.  They were right there doing these things with the native population that were all worked up, trying to outdo the Nazis in their horror.

Not that all Muslims acted like that.  There were others who had a heart like several Albanian Muslims who helped to save their Jewish neighbors.  In Sarajevo, Fehim Spaho, an elderly head of the local ulama, tried to get Jews to convert to Islam to save their lives. but wasn't very successful.  One can look a the history of the Spanish Inquisition and see this was quite similar.

The Germans were not successful in having a grand Nazi-Islamic alliance at that time, but it appears that their  work left an indelible impression which we are viewing today.  They caused Arabs to hate Jews!  " Anti Semitic beliefs spewed out by the Nazis are in use today.  They are still claiming that Jews use blood in making matzos, and reading drivel cranked out on the Nazi presses.

Guess where Nazis fled to when they lost WWII?  Arab states.  Some 4,000 Nazis made it safely  and even shielded them from prosecutions and put them to work as military advisers, intelligence operatives and propagandists.  Johann von Leers, SS major, went to Cairo, Egypt  and converted to Islam and changed his name to Omar Amir von Leers.   Alois Brunner, Adolf Eichmann's right-hand man,  fled to Damascus, Syria and found work as an anti-Zionist propagandist.  Adolf Eichmann hid out in Argentina and worked on propaganda against  Israel for a united Arab offensive.  Whatever he wrote was a stream of lies putting fear into the Arabs caused by the Jews.
In other words, Jews have been fighting against Nazis long after WWII ended.  The ironic fact is that until Husseini had come to talk with Hitler, " the Führer did not point out to his Arab visitors at that meeting that until then he had incited German Jews to emigrate to Palestine, and the Reich actively helped Zionist organizations get around alleged British-imposed restrictions on Jewish immigration.Gilbert Achcar wryly observed this fact.  Achcar is a professor of Development Studies at the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies,
