Nazis and Muslims had a common enemy: the Jews

December 21, 2010

Here’s a recent piece from the Jerusalem Post that reminds us of the ideological simpatico between Islam and Nazism, focusing on Yasser Arafat’s uncle, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini:

A newly released report by the US National Archives details the close collaborative relationship between Nazi leaders and the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, indicating that Nazi authorities planned to use Husseini as their leader after their conquest of Palestine.

Husseini was paid handsomely by the Nazis for his efforts, recruited Muslims for the SS and was promised that he would be made Palestine’s leader after its Jewish population of 350,000 had been murdered.

The report, Hitler’s Shadow: Nazi War Criminals, US Intelligence and the Cold War, was prepared on the basis of thousands of documents declassified under the 1998 Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act.

(…)

“We thought the April 1945 contract between the [German] Foreign Office and Husseini was striking evidence of an ideological collaboration both sides hoped would continue after the war.”

Husseini, who died in Beirut in 1974, was apparently paid 50,000 marks per month, and 80,000 additional marks a month for living expenses, according to a contract with the Germans. This was a time when a German field officer typically earned 25,000 marks a year.

According to the report, on November 28, 1941, Adolf Hitler told Husseini that the Afrika Korps would “liberate” Arabs in the Middle East and that “Germany’s only objective there would be the destruction of the Jews.”

SS leaders and Husseini both claimed that Nazism and Islam had common values as well as common enemies – above all, the Jews,” the report states.

And this Nazi influence stretches down to the present day, as statements by current Islamic leaders show.

Some scholars have argued that this Nazi influence corrupted Islam, selectively playing on antisemitic elements that were in the Qur’an. I take a different view, that in each other, Nazism and Islam found a soul-mate, a sympathetic ally, and that each used the other to achieve their desired end: the destruction of the Jews. As Dr. Andrew Bostom has shown, Jew-hatred is a continuing theme in Islam from Muhammad, himself, to the present day. The Nazis didn’t exploit an aberration — they found a friend.

Anniversary of a bad idea

December 11, 2010

On this date in 1941, Adolph Hitler and Benito Mussolini declared war on the United States in support of their Japanese ally.

Benito, I have this great idea...

 

How’d that turn out for you, guys?

Mein Führer?

 

Berlin, 1945. Second thoughts?

Il Duce?

Not what you'd hoped for?

Prime Minister Tojo?

That worked out well, didn't it?

Maybe you should have thought about it a bit more.

Morons.


Note on comments: praising Hitler is not allowed

September 2, 2010

I tolerate quite a bit in the comments section, including some pretty vicious, over-the-top attacks on myself. As I say in the About page, the comments areas are for you folks to talk. I’ll rarely get involved.

One thing I won’t tolerate, however, are comments praising Adolph Adolf Hitler and what he and his filthy cohorts did to the Jews and others. That gets the comment deleted and the author banned, immediately.

Including you, “Thomas Kale.”

EDIT: To fix an embarrassing misspelling of Der Fooey’s name.
