Netanyahu Responds to Abbas’s Praise of Hitler’s Mufti

muftiOn January 4, 2013, Mahmoud Abbas, spoke via video link on a wide screen to the masses in Gaza, who gathered to celebrate the founding of Fatah (Arabic word for “conquest”),  otherwise known as the Palestine Liberation Organization.

In his New Year’s speech, Abbas spoke glowingly of the legacy of the Godfather of the PLO, the Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Muhammad Amin Al-Husseini, who during the 1920′s and 1930’s instigated pogroms against the Jews of Palestine and who during his residence in Nazi Germany actively plotted a Final Solution to be carried out once his German allies would win the war.

Abbas praised the Mufti as a man whose ways should be emulated by all Palestinian Arabs.

“We must remember the pioneers, the Grand Mufti of Palestine, Hajj Muhammad Amin Al-Husseini, as well as Ahmad Al-Shukeiri, the founder of the PLO,” Abbas said, according to a translation of the speech made by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

At the time, our agency asked Israeli President Shimon Peres and Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu for comment on the Mufti’s praise of Hitler’s ally. Since the Israeli government is on record as defining Abbas as a partner for peace, one would have expected a response which expressed horror and revulsion.

Instead, there was silence from the highest officials of the Israeli government.

Peres’s office said that there would be no response. Netanyahu’s office said that there would be a response, in due time.

Nine months after the Abbas praise of the Mufti, on Oct. 6, 2013, Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu chose the venue of a policy speech at Bar Ilan University to respond to the emulation lauded on the Mufti by Abbas and by the official curriculum of the Palestinian Authority.

Israel’s Prime Minister quoted the protocols of the Hitler-Mufti pact, presented as evidence against the Mufti in the Nuremberg war crimes trials. The records of the meeting between Hitler and the Mufti explicitly state that Hitler would exterminate the Jews in Europe, while the Mufti would enlist Nazi aid to exterminate Jews in Palestine, so as to establish a “JudenRein” state of Palestine.

To that end, the Mufti ensconced himself in Hitler’s bunker, from where he recruited an Islamic unit of the Waffen SS, which actively engaged in the mass murder of Jews, while issuing Arabic language appeals on Nazi radio that incited Moslems to join the Nazi cause and to prepare for mass murder of Jews in Palestine.

The Protocols of the Nuremberg trials concerning the Mufti were published in a 1946 book, titled “Mufti of Jerusalem,” authored by journalist Maurice Pearlman, who was appointed in 1948 by Israel’s first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, as the first director of the Israel Government Press Office.

Pearlman reported that the refusal of the British government to arrest the Mufti in Cairo caused the head of the Zionist revisionists in the United States at the time, Ben Zion Netanyahu, the late father of Israel’s current Prime Minister, to launch an unsuccessful campaign to push the US to demand the arrest of the Mufti in Cairo.

In his Bar Ilan speech, Netanyahu cited affidavits of senior SS prosecution witnesses who testified that the Mufti, working directly under Eichmann and Himmler, identified the Mufti’s instrumental role in making sure that millions of Jews were murdered, and not ransomed.

Netanyahu referred to the affidavit of one of Eichmann’s subordinates, SS Hampsturmfuerer Dieter Wisliceny, who appeared as a witness for the Nuremberg prosecution, where the Nazi officer testified that,

The Mufti was one of the initiators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry for the Germans and had been the permanent collaborator and advisor of Eichmann and Himmler in the execution of the plan…According to my opinion, the Grand Mufti, who had been in Berlin since 1941, played a role in the decision of the German government to exterminate the European Jews, the importance of which must not be disregarded, He had repeatedly suggested to the various authorities with who had been in contact, above all before Hitler, Ribbentrop and Himmler, the extermination of European Jewry. He considered this as a comfortable solution of the Palestinian problem. In his messages broadcast from Berlin, he surpassed us in anti-Jewish attacks. He was one of Eichmann’s best friends and had constantly incited him to accelerate the extermination measures…

Discussion of the Mufti’s role in the extermination of the Jews has been downplayed for years by Israeli officials, who were hesitant to attack the George Washington of the PLO. Perhaps that would spoil the moderate image of the PLO as a peace partner.

Now Israel’s Prime Minister has placed the Mufti’s legacy on the agenda.

A little known fact concerns the Mufti’s special relationship with a young relative in Cairo, to whom the Mufti would affectionately give the name “Yassir Arafat.” In December 1996, Haaretz interviewed Yassir Arafat’s younger brother and sister, who said that the Mufti performed the role of a surrogate father figure and mentor to the young Arafat.

Prime Minister Netanyahu’s erudite reference to the Mufti’s role in the mass murder of Jews in World War II was not lost on pundits who followed every word of his speech. After all, that mass murder of Jews is currently taught in Palestinian Authority schools in accordance with Abbas’s 1983 doctoral thesis at the University of Moscow, which concludes that the World Zionist Organization, not the Nazi party, was responsible for the destruction of European Jewry.

    An inconvenient fact that the PA and their fellow travellers have been trying to bury for decades.

    And they are not doing a very good job at, for Mein Kampf is a bestseller there…

    Our so called “leading lights” know with whom they are dealing with, regarding the “process of peace”. In fact, too many of our non-elected elitists are more enamored with Abbas and his terror junta than they are with anything which smacks of true Zionist ethos. This is the G-d’s honest truth.
    Now, it is also the case that PM Netanyahu absolutely understands all there is to know about Abbas’s bloody history, particularly while Arafat’s right hand terror aid, having participated in the Ma’alot Massacre of school children!

    Therefore, why in the world is it a surprise that Abbas/Abu Mazen reveres the Nazi-loving/aiding Mufti of Jerusalem?
    So, it begs the question: who is more disingenuous, the ever spewing Jew-hater Abbas, as he tells the truth to his people, or PM Netanyahu, as he lies about the “necessity” of a PA State (albeit “demilitarized, but never mind, there is NO such animal as a “demilitarized” state!) for Israel to remain “democratic”.

    Sach ha’kol. at the end of it all, there is where it is at:’ Inqusitr Interviews Adina Kutnicki: The Reality Of Life For An Israeli Patriot’, it tells the insane, dangerous, delusional tale!

    When bashing the Muslims, add FDR and the team he sent to Germany in 1938 to aide in the efficient transfer of those requiring ‘social rehabilitation’ to ‘rehab centers’ [extermination camps]. This team included IBM’s Watson, head of GE, and six others.

    The ‘New World Order’ or ‘One World Leaders’ etc were planning the control of all industries and destruction of capitalist who were not under their control since Woodrow Wilson. Every war since then [including WWI] was to increase their power and their wealth. The value of our human lives and suffering is meaningless to them.

    My father left Germany [in 1928] when his family became part of ‘New Order’ and he thought USA would be a haven. His brother was a field officer in WWII.
    Read and study until you can prove or reject “Our war is between Satan and righteousness”. That is why all Torah and Biblical Judea-Christians are being eliminated or marginalized.

    Life if too short and eternity too long to be wrong about God, His Bible, Jesus and eternal salvation. Please prove me wrong!

        Couldn’t the desire for a new worldwide islamic caliphate be deemed a desire for a NWO?

  • Bert

    Again we see that Jewish leaders in BOTH Israel and the U.S. fail to emphasize this key chapter in history. Shimon Peres tried to cover up this information so he could more easily pretend the Arabs a partners for peace. This story should have been given top billing by Jewish leaders from the end of WWII until this day because its implications are central to the entire dispute with the Arabs.

  • JacksonPearson

    Israel shouldn’t even be talking to this Islamic thug. The Jews should take over the West Bank, and boot the Arabs back into Jordan where they came from.

    How can there be anyone left in the world that does not understand the moral bankruptcy and vile nature of the PLO and its leader Abu Mazen? We indeed live in a fallen world where re-presenting the case against the PLO continues to be needed. These are demonic individuals with no morals, primitive sensibilities, infinite internal rage (rationalized as determination for “justice”[sic]), and an utter disregard for truth. Please keep praying for Israel. Jesus is listening even if the NY Times is not.

    “Abbas’s 1983 doctoral thesis at the University of Moscow, which
    concludes that the World Zionist Organization, not the Nazi party, was
    responsible for the destruction of European Jewry” So is he asserting that the World Zionist Organization ran Nazi Germany? Doesn’t that sound a little delusional?
