HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERon 19 January 2006
Haj Amin al-Husseini represented the opposite of the noble Emir Faisal Ibn Husein, the enlightened Arab King of Hejaz who had cordial relations with Chaim Weizmann and wanted to achieve a peaceful Middle East with co-operation between Jew and Arab.

Unfortunately Al-Husseini's ideology of hatred won out. As Grand Mufti of Jerusalem he spearheaded the imperialistic or utopian strain of Islam that has turned into a modern hydra. In 1920 he organised the murder of Jews who were praying at the Wailing Wall, and he never looked back. Throughout the rest of his time in Palestine he furthered his murderous designs because of the British policy of appeasement, with further campaigns in 1929 and from 1936.

In the 1930s Al-Husseini became a supporter of Hitler, eventually settling in Berlin where he encouraged the annihilation of European Jews and planned to become the leader of the Arab world in expectation of an Axis victory. He unceasingly promoted the Holocaust and Nazism amongst the Arabs. This strain of Nazism was a blend of National Socialism and fundamentalist Islam that would make deep inroads into the Arab world.

After the war Al-Husseini fled to Cairo where was instrumental in accommodating fleeing Nazis and organising for the destruction of Israel. The hatred of Israel now took on a Leftist flavour as the Soviet Union became the champion of the Arab cause. Arab leaders like Gamal Abdel Nasser, Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat were all influenced by his hateful ideas.

Al-Husseini did not only target Jews, but also moderate Arabs and the free West in general. Nazism was the spiritual and physical bridge by which Islamic extremism became prominent in the Arab world. He introduced the demented belief that utopia could be achieved on earth by the destruction of Israel and the annihilation of the Jews.

This malevolent Islamo-Fascism is the cause of much of the misery in the Arab world today and at the root of the hatred of non-Muslims, particularly the United States and Israel. In this, the extremists are assisted by international leftists. The Western democracies are now tasting the fruit of a decades long policy of appeasement towards this odious movement and its demonic founder.

But there is still a chance that the legacy of Emir Faisal might prevail, although recent developments in Europe do not look promising. Al-Husseini was without doubt one of the most evil personalities of the 20th century as meticulously documented in this revealing book.

Plenty of black and white photographs enhance the text, illustrating Al-Husseini's meetings with Nazi and Arab leaders, and of Bosnian Muslim brigades in World War II.

There are nine indices with documentary evidence of the historical narrative. Appendix A is the Balfour Declaration of 1917, B provides excerpts of the correspondence of King Faisal, C is the Weizmann-Faisal Agreement of 1919, D provides a dialogue between Lord Peel and Husseini from the Palestine Royal Commission Report.

Appendix E gives the minutes of a meeting between Hitler and Al-Husseini, F is an excerpt from the diary of Al-Husseini on his meeting with Hitler, G is a letter in which he asks the Hungarian government to send 1000 Jews to their death in Poland instead of allowing them to escape to Israel, H is his address to Arab-Americans and I is the Palestine National Covenant that denies the right of Israel to exist.

The text concludes with a moving prayer for the state of Israel by the Chief Rabbinate. It is a prayer that all true Christians would do well to heed and incorporate into their worship in these trying times. The book concludes with notes, an index and biographical information on the author.

I also recommend The Other War: Israelis, Palestinians and the Struggle for Media Supremacy by Stephanie Gutmann, Our Hands Are Stained with Blood by Michael l Brown, Dream Palace Of The Arabs by Fouad Ajami, Israel: Life In The Shadow Of Terror by Nechemia Coopersmith, Myths And Facts by Mitchell G Bard and Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left by David Horowitz.

Chuck Morse's book `The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism' tells the fascinating and chilling account of Haj Amin al-Husseini, the sinister Grand Mufti of Jerusalem during the British Mandate period. The book describes how Haj Amin al-Husseini, who was the spiritual and political leader of the Palestinian Arabs, became Hitler's most important ally in the Middle East. The book goes on to acknowledge that Haj Amin al-Husseini was responsible for introducing Nazi style anti-Semitism to the Middle East and also emphasizes how he galvanised Arab support for Nazi Germany during the Second World War.

Haj Amin al-Husseini was so conspicuous in his collusion with Nazi Germany, that he had a number of public meetings with Hitler and Adolf Eichmann, and subsequently went on to play a fundamental part in the persecution of the Jewish people throughout the Second World War.

Chuck Morse delivers an excellent and informed factual analysis on Haj Amin al-Husseini and his role in the history of the Middle East. Also this book contains such a wealth of historical evidence, references, quotes and an extensive appendix section which makes it an invaluable source of information. I would highly recommend this book to any one interested in the history of the Middle East.

For those , like myself , who are sick and tired of the hate-filled international campaign to destroy Israel , and anihilate her people , this informative and fascinating book provides an exploration of the roots of Palestinianism and anti-Israel hatred.
It outlines how the ongoing genocide against the Jews of Israel is in fact a continuation of the Nazi holocaust against the Jews of Europe.

Chuck Morse traces the story of Haj amin al-Husseini , the founder of the Palestinian
Movement , and ally and friend of Adolf Hitler , and a key player in the holocaust Against the Jews
Al-Husseini , the Mufti of Jerusalem , was a vicious enemy of the
Jewish people , in the tradition of Amalek , Haman , Torquemada , Chmielniki , and of course Hitler. His legacy continues today in the PLO , Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades ,
PFLP , Hamas , Islamic Jihad , Hezbollah , Al Qaida , and the regimes of Syria , Libya
And Iran , as well as the supporters of the genocidal hate campaign against Israel on the International Left , and some on the Far Right (like Pat Buchanan and David Duke).

60 years after the Nazi holocaust , anti-Jewish hatred reached another climax at the hideous anti-Israel hate fest , the United Nations Conference on Racism , in Durban , South Africa , where the Left demonstrated their common cause with Radical Islam ,
By embracing hateful anti-Zionist propaganda , and feverishly supporting the genocidal Program against Israel.

This evil festival of terror and hate in Durban 2001 , was the lowest point in human history , since the Nazi holocaust , and may a stain of shame always stay by the names of those who organized and facilitated this event.

Haj Amin al-Husseini was born in Jerusalem , in 1895 , and fought in the Ottoman Trurkish Army , against the British , during the First World War. In 1919 , he established a secret Moslem Youth Group , al-Nadi al-Arabi , which organized violence against the British , the Jews of Palestine , and moderate Moslems.
In March , 1920 , al-Husseini instigated attacks against innocent Jews praying at the Western Wall , in Jerusalem , followed by anti-Jewish pogroms by armed Arab gangs in Jaffa , Rehovot , Petach Tikva , and other Jewish towns
In 1922 , al-Husseini was appointed Grand Mufti of Jerusalem by the British. He organized a reign of terror against moderate Moslems who showed any sign of accepting the Jews , and in 1929 organized further pogroms agianst Jews in Jerusalem , Motza , Hebron , Safed , Haifa , Tel Aviv and Jaffa , as well as Jews living in the countryside. The ancient Jewish community of Hebron was destroyed.
After the massacre of the Hebron Jews , al-Husseini disseminated photos of the slaughtered Jewish corpses with the claim that the dead where actaully Arabs killed by Jews!
This type of blood-libel is today frequently used against Israel by the Palestinian Authority together with the Axis of the Islamists and the International Left , and is widely dissmeninated in the media and universities worldwide. As Morse points out : " The preposterous and quite bizzare proposition prsented today is that the State of Israel and it's armed forces are deliberately and knowingly killing innocent Palestinian Arabs. Such propaganda ,serves the same purpose today as it did in the time ofal-Husseini, not to mention mediaeval times , namely as a means of fanning the flames and hatred , and stoking the fires of genocide against the Jews.

After Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933 , Al-Husseini proceeded to set up a Palestinian Arab Youth Group , known as the Nazi Scouts. In addition , Arab organizations modelled on the Nazi Party where set up in Egypt , Algeria, Tunisia , Syria, Lebanon and Iraq.
In August , 1995 a graduating class of Palestinian Authority cadets , who would later engage in the mass slaughter of Jewish men , women and children , marked the occasion with a Nazi style straight Sieg Heil salute. Fawzi Salim al-Mahdi , a commander of Fatah's Force 17 , Arafat's elite Praetorian Guard , which would play a key role in suicide bombings , was known as Abu Hitler , because he named his two sons Eichmann and Hitler.
In 1936 , al-Husseini made contact with the German Nazis , and with their backing launched the Arab revolt , in which thousands of Jews where butchered to the chlling cry of `Itbach al Yahud' - `Kill the Jews'. In 1937 , al Husseini met with Adolf Eichmann , in a cordial meeting , that would cement the al-Husseini-Hitler Alliance. Eichmann reported glowingly of the `national and racial conscience' among the Arabs of Palestine who hung swastikas and portaraits of Hitler in their homes.

That year the mufti fled from the British to Lebanon , and thence to Iraq. After organizing a failed pro-Nazi coup in Iraq , al-Husseini fled to Nazi Germany , where he was installed as a guest of honour , who frequently met with Hitler , and was present at the 1942 Wannsee conference where the `Final Solution' to the Jewish question was adopted. Al-Husseini organized SS Brigades of Moslems from the Caucuses , the Middle East and Bosnia , including the infamous Hansar Brigades of Bosnian Moslems , which killed thousands of Serbs , Roma and Jews. He is reported to have visited Auschwitz and urged the SS guards there to be more dilligent in their work of extermination. In 1943 , he interceded with the Hungarian authorities to prevent to prevent 900 Jewish children from being shipped to Palestine. The children where instead sent to Auschwitz , where they perished.

After World War II , al-Husseini escaped to Egypt , and organized the Arab war effort to destroy the tiny fledgling State of Israel. He formed a band of Arab terrorists , called the Jihad Muqqadas , who launched attacks on Jewish civillians. Until his death in 1974 , after which his shoes where filled by his nephew Yasser Arafat , al-Husseini continued to devote his life to the destruction of Israel. The evil of al-Husseini and Hitler lives on , in the terror and propaganda war against Israel. Perhaps the idea of Jews living as a free and prosperous people in their own land is what fuels the rage of those who hate Israel.

May God bless and protect Israel , and scatter and destroy all those who hate Israel.

I have been reading and studying a multitude of books on the Middle East Conflict since the early 70's but this is the book that has really hit the nail on the head. I agree with the author of this book that the Weizmann-Faisal Agreement (Appendix C) should have been - and yet still should be - regarded as an International Treaty concerning Palestine.

I knew Haj Amin al-Husseini's grandson in Jerusalem when I lived there during the 1970's and he used to talk about how Haj had been the spokesperson for the Palestinian people. I had no definite idea, until I read this book, that the underlying Palestinian political agenda is clearly and truly shown, by referenced documents, to be a One-Nation Arab Muslim Palestinian State - to be achieved via the displacement (and possible destruction) of the Jewish people (with who knows what for the quarter million or so Christian Palestinians still living there.) This, as the author explains, was clearly shown in recorded conversations between Adolf Hitler and Amin al-Husseini when Husseini was promised the position of Fuhrer of the Middle East in return for the Jewish ethnic cleansing of the Balkans and later again by Husseini's statements at the Peel Commission in 1939 and re-emphasised by Yasser Arafat via the Palestinian National Covenant of 1964.

This book shows, by referenced material, that again and again, the Palestinians have refused all offers of a solution to the Palestinian question, firstly, via Partition and later, via the West Bank - the Peel Commission White Paper of 1939 (Haj Amin al-Husseini) and the Camp David Summit of 2000 (Barak and Arafat) clearly prove this point. The only solution that Haj Amin al-Husseini, as the Palestinian spokesperson, had been keen to promote was the One State Solution - that of Arab Muslim dominance, which is why no success on the issue has been achieved to date.

The author asserts that Maybe Israel should stop making conciliatory offers and innuendoed apologies and, instead, stick only to asking focused and specific questions of the Palestinian leadership about exactly what it is that the Palestinian people want and expect? Let the Palestinian spokespersons come to the table with their prepared submissions and lay it all out as they see it, so that the whole world can clearly see the official Palestinian position. There appears to be numerous Palestinian positions and these need to be consolidated into one. It would be reasonable to say, in this respect, that until the Palestinian leadership can agree on what they actually want, that they really don't have the right to expect Israel and the ROTW to play the role of mind readers.

The author of this book presents much evidence here, referenced material that, as he says, has been widely overlooked in the past. I truly believe that any sincere student on the ME Conflict cannot afford to overlook the evidence that is presented in this book. It certainly changed the shape of the horizon for me.

This has got to be one of the most important books on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.
