This voice of the Palestinian people, Amin al-Husseini, was more than the leader of the Muslims of Palestine, the most revered defender of Muslim honor in the world. He advised the Nazis in killing Jews. Palestinians today say they had no role in the Holocaust, and Ahmadinejad even refutes it as never happening, but their main leader was an advocate and main leader in bringing about the holocaust.
He made an alliance with Hitler and helped to promote the Holocaust. This is the man admired by Ahmadinejad. When he saw how powerful Hitler was, he decided to copy him by telling the German consul in Jerusalem that the Muslims in and out of Palestine welcomed the new order and hoped for the same fascist anti-democratic system in other countries.
He organized the "Nazi Scouts," which was a copy of the "Hitler Youth." They used the swastika as their symbol. About 1935, Arabs worked on curtailing immigration and Jewish efforts to rescue Jews out of Europe. Husseini and his friends promoted violence. By 1936 their targets were defenseless Jewish civilians in hospitals, movie theaters, stores and homes followed up by strikes, shop closures and bombing of British offices.
Of course Nazis in Germany and Italian fascists supported this action by sending millions to the mufti. Their SS under Heinrich Himmler gave money and offered plans for anti-Semitic pogroms in Palestine. Adolf Eichmann even visted Husseini in Palestine and kept up contact with him. Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister, got him to broadcast daily pro-Nazi, anti-Semitic speeches from Berlin. He told his Muslim listeners that they could achieve eternal salvation by rising up and killing the Jewish infidels living in Muslim countries. Husseini told Eichmann and Himmler to speed up the pace of mass murder of Jews. He personally stopped 4,000 children shepherded by 500 adults from leaving Europe and had them sent to Auschwitz and gassed. He stopped another 2,000 Jews from leaving Romania for Palestine and 1,000 from leaving Hungary for Palestine who were then sent to death camps. He organized the killing of thousands of Bosnian Jews by Muslims that he had recruited to the Waffen-SS Nazi-Bosnian division. He alone is responsible for more than the death of 20,000 Jewish children and adults .
This Nazi war criminal escaped to Egypt and was given asylum where he helped to organize many former Nazis and Nazi sympathizers against Israel.
In 1947 the Arabs were against the Jews in a Nakba. When Israel was declared a state in 1948 the war officially started. The aim was total annihilation. The leaders said this and their actions backed it. Nazis fought with them along with British Army deserters that were anti-semitic. They attacked Jewish civilians. If they surrendered they were massacred, bodies mutilated and women generally raped. Children and the elderly were murdered. Many Palestinian homes had the photograph of Husseini and Hitler together in Berlin on their walls. This George Washington of the Palestinians inspired hatred against Jews everywhere.
Because the Arabs felt Jewish pressure and influence in creating their state, they became friends with the Nazis and Fascists, they say as their excuse to go along with the Axis. They forget that they were offered a state of their own and refused it. Husseini spent the war years in Berlin with Hitler acting as consultant to the Jewish question. He supported the mass murder of Jews and took a tour of Auschwitz with Himmler. He wanted to use the same method in Palestine and other Arab countries. It didn’t matter to him that most of the Jews in Palestine were descendants of Sephardic Jews that had lived there for thousands of years. He was like Hitler in aiming to be rid of "every last Jew."Hitler had told him, "The Jews are yours." He planned on building a death camp near Nablus.
"Arise, Oh sons of Arabia. Fight for your sacred rights. Slaughter Jews wherever you find them. Their spilled blood pleases Allah, our history and religion. That will save our honor," was his call to his followers. In 1944 a German-Arab commando unit in Husseini’s command parachuted into Palestine and tried to poison Tel Aviv’s wells.
On September 21, 1944, he spoke of the 11 million Jews of the world. In 1939 there were 17 million Jews in the world. He knew in 1944 that 6 million had already been killed before the rest of the world was aware of it.
He also was responsible for a pro-Nazi coup in Iraq and organized thousands of Muslims in the Balkans into military units, the Handselar Divisions, that carried out atrocities against Yugoslav Jews, Serbs, and Gypsies.
