A Very Practical and Attractive Religion for Soldiers

May 20, 2006

The recent renaissance of the the proud German tradition of collaborating with murderous Palestinian Arab scum is deserving of further attention. The following is from a previous entry, namely Child Molesters Comparing Notes. It's too good (immodest I'm not!) to be doomed to future insignificance in the blog bilges, so I've taken and added a bit to it.

Hadj Amin el Husseini, with Brit assistance self-appointed Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, mass murderer of Jews, on Hitler's payroll since 1937, accomplice of Hitler in the Holocaust, honoured guest in Berlin during WWII (all expenses, hookers included, paid), founder of the SS Handzar division, and post-war co-founder and President of the Arab League.

It is a widely shared consensus, that the existence of the state of Israel with her ethnic European population is the cause for the strife in the Middle East. So it may be a surprise to some that as early as 1933 Nazi political groups started to rise their ugly heads throughout the Arab world, for example Young Egypt, led by Muslim Brotherhood member Gamal Abdel Nasser, later Egyptian President. Young Egypt’s political slogan "One Folk, One Party, One Leader" is a direct translation from the German.

Who was the driving force behind this movement?

Contrary to the current politically correct version that the previously innocent and Jew-loving Arabs "learned" antisemitism from the Germans, there is sufficient proof even to justifiedly speculate whether to some extent the history of the European Jews would have taken not quite a disastrous course without Amin el Husseini, who later added "Hadj" to his name, and whose creepy shadow of death is still looming today.

He was born 1893 in Jerusalem under Ottoman rule. 1914-1917 he got his first taste of "jihad" and must have found it addictive. As an officer of the Ottoman Empire in Smyrna during the Armenian genocide, he actively participated in the slaughtering of one and a half million Christians by the Ottoman Army and it ought to be remembered that allegiance to the idea of the Ottoman Empire and a vision of Islamic world take-over was spine-chillingly echoed by Osama Bin Laden in his post-September 11th declaration.

But back to British Mandate Palestine, where Husseini is able to apply the lessons he had learned, lessons of genocide and the establishment of a Pan-Islamic empire, from which Jews and Christians are excluded. He stirs up riots in Palestine through the Twenties and Thirties, mainly, but not exclusively, targeted at Jews, including the massacre of the Hebron Jews on 23 and 24 August 1929.

The survivors are forced to flee Hebron, their property is seized by Arab residents and occupied until after the Six Day War 1967. The Hebron Jewish community was over 2,000 years old. This and other massacres may serve as both, proof for the fact that the Jewish-Arab relationships were, different from what some are fond of maintaining, less than well already before the foundation of the State of Israel and that, different from what others say, the Arabs did not learn genocidal antisemitism from the Nazis. But I digress.

Muslims who dare to protest against Hadj Amin's reign of terror are murdered as well, who, in 1931, becomes founder of the World Islamic Congress and starts to build his own strong political base.

1937 Hadj Amin el Husseini visits the German Consul in Jerusalem. He meets among others Adolf Eichmann (whose sense for "Aryan" company must have been a wee bit selective) to discuss "the Jewish question". From then on, Husseini will receive financial and military aid from Nazi Germany. He spends the war safe and sound in Germany, all expenses paid by the Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt).

Active collaboration with top-ranking Nazis starts in 1941. Reportedly, Hitler would have been content with deporting the Jews to Palestine, which Husseini perceives as a threat to his powerbase and so he pushes successfully for the extermination of the European Jews. The same year, Husseini is made chief architect of the Nazi occupation in Bosnia. The Serbian-Cyrillic alphabet is banned, Orthodox Serbs forced to wear a blue, Jewish Serbs a yellow armband.

While in Bosnia, Amin Al-Husseini takes the title "Protector of Islam". 100,000 (One hundred thousand!) Bosnian Muslims join the Nazi ranks. They are seeking the approval of the Germans for establishing an autonomous protectorate for Bosnian Muslims.

Amin Al-Husseini approves the Pejani Plan calling for the extermination of the Serbian population, something that even Nazi Germany refuses to implement.

Bosnian ethnic cleansing under Amin al Husseini:
- Orthodox Christian Serbs: 200,000 killed
- Gypsies: more than 40,000 killed
- Jewish Bosnians: 22,000 killed.
Husseini’s legacy of hatred is a major factor in today’s Bosnia/Herzegovina campaign against the Serbs.

1942, Husseini intervenes personally with the Nazi High Command to refuse an offer by the Red Cross to exchange 10,000 Jewish children for German prisoners of war. The offer is refused and the children die in the gas chambers.

1943, he creates the Handzar Division of Muslim Soldiers in Bosnia, which is, with 26,000 soldiers, to become the largest division of the Third Reich military and participates actively in the genocide of the Serbians, Gipsies and Jews in Bosnia. The Muslim soldiers pledge allegiance to Nazi regime in an official statement drawn up by Heinrich Himmler. During the same year, Husseini is made "Prime Minister" of a Pan-Arab Government created by the Nazi regime. His "headquarters" are in Berlin. He plans to put up a concentration camp in Nablus to realise the "final solution" in Palestine as an extension of Hitler’s plan.

Husseini and Himmler grow on each other. At his insistence, the "Mufti" is even given a private tour of Auschwitz death camp by Himmler.

Heinrich Himmler, obviously another Nazi with rather selective "Aryan" tastes, informed Nazi chief propagandist Josef Goebbels: "[I] have nothing against Islam because it educates the men in this division for me and promises them heaven if they fight and are killed in action. A very practical and attractive religion for soldiers."

On August 6, 1943, Himmler writes the following letter to his man in the NDH, SS Gruppenführer und Generalleutnant der Polizei Konstantin Kammerhofer and to Artur Phleps, commander of the 5th SS Mountain Corps:

"All Moslem members of the Waffen SS and police are to be afforded the undeniable right of their religious demands never to touch pork, pork sausages nor to drink alcohol...I hold all commanders...and other SS officers, responsible for the most scrupulous and loyal respect for this privilege especially granted to the Muslims. They have answered the call of the Moslem chiefs and have come to us out of hatred for the common Jewish-Anglo-Bolshevik enemy and through respect and fidelity for he who they respect above all, the Fuehrer, Adolf Hitler... There will no longer be the least discussion about the special rights afforded to the Moslems in these circles.

Heil Hitler
(signed) H. Himmler"

It is Himmler, too, who establishes and funds the "Islamische Zentralinstitut" in Dresden, with Husseini as head. The purpose is to create a generation of Muslim leaders that would continue to use Islam as a carrier for Nazi ideology into the 21st century.

On March 1, 1944, Husseini addresses from Berlin the Muslim SS units: "Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history and religion. This saves your honour. God is with you."

1944, he becomes one of the founders of the Arab League. Its goal is to reinforce Pan-Islamic unity. Founding members are Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen. Husseini is appointed in absentia President of Fourth Higher Committee.

1946, the British grant Husseini amnesty to weaken the Jewish presence in Mandate Palestine. He returns to Palestine.

1946, Hadj Amin is appointed leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jerusalem. Wahhabist Islam becomes the perfect carrier for Husseini’s policy of ethnic cleansing. He uses recently acquired Nazi methods to realise his vision of an Arab World free of Jews ("judenfrei"). Yugoslavia's request of extradition of Husseini from Egypt for War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity is refused by the Egyptian government.

Egyptian(!)-born Yasser Arafat, later to become a "Palestinian" icon, meets Husseini at age 17 and starts then working for him. Hadj Amin el Husseini is allegedly a great-uncle of Arafat, whose real name is Mohammed Abder Rauf Arafat Al-Kudwa Al-Husseini. Arafat reportedly changed his name to disguise his nationality or his connection to Husseini or both, although why he should disguise family ties with a Pan-Arab icon like Hadj Amin I can't quite fathom. This, too, destroys the myth that the "Palestinian" fight against the "Israeli occupation is a political, secular struggle and not a part of global Islamic jihad.

Post-WWII, Husseini is directly involved in providing a safe haven to ex-Nazis in Arab countries and the main connection with Francois Genoud, Swiss banker of the Third Reich, who finances the ODESSA network with money stolen from European Jews. Genoud, visits Husseini several times in Beirut and sponsors Arab Nationalism with Nazi money. In Cairo and Tangiers, Genoud sets up an import-export company called Arabo-Afrika, as a cover for an anti-Jewish and later anti-Israeli propaganda organisation.

Genoud sets up, too, Swiss bank accounts for the North African liberation armies of Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. Together with Syria, he sets up the Arab Commercial Bank in Geneva. 1962, he becomes director of the Arab People’s Bank in Algeria.

Putting up a picture of the Arab issue of "Mein Kampf" cost a German blogger recently his contract with his (German) ISP. Showing something like that is considered "hatespeak" by German law, while conveniently serving the purpose of keeping up a smokescreen preventing knowledge of German-Arab collaboration spreading too far.

1962, Hadj Amin el Husseini becomes president of his brainchild, the World Islamic Congress.

Husseini dies in Syria in 1974 at the biblical age of 81. Life is rarely fair.

His legacy of a worldwide war of Islamic conquest, of terror and eliminatory hatred of Jews continues to this day. Yasser Arafat (on the right) pays hommage to his mentor at the latter's funeral.

Ken, while I am writing this I am exchanging emails with Stefan, the owner of "Politically Incorrect". He is a good friend.

Another excellent and informative post! And while I have you "on the line," two OT questions....

I've been reading Daniel Goldhagen's "Hitler's Willing Executioners." He says that Germans generally favored "eliminationist" policies toward Jews long before the Nazis came to power. He says that this policy grew out of German attitudes toward Jews as the agents of the devil, which morphed into the racist views of the 19th century. His point is that pre-Nazi Germans were generally "eliminationist" even though the writings weren't obvious, unless one looked. This also includes the various religious figures, Bonhoffer, etc.

My questions are: (1) If you've read this (long and tedious) book, what do you think of it? and (2) Do you think that Germans have abandoned antisemitism (in general), or is it still an integral part of the culture?

Please note that I don't believe that Germans are about to bring about another Holocaust. I'm just curious as to what the underlying feelings of Germans are these days.

My interest was precipitated by the EU funding of Hamas and other Palestinian terrorists--and wanted to know if this is related to antisemitism or not, and if not, what is the cause.

Nora, thanks for this thorough, chilling and steeling post. A few years ago, another pro-Israeli blogger raised the bloody scepter of Hadj AeH to my face in order to refute some wishful thinking I'd expressed about Palestinians-being-ready-to-make-peace-if-only-Israel-would-make-more-concessions (withdrawals, prisoner releases, etc.). It was the first I remember hearing about Hadj AeH -- and it turned out to be a tipping point in finding moral clarity on this subject. Your images are really effective, too!

Promethea, VERY good questions!

My questions are: (1) If you've read this (long and tedious) book, what do you think of it?

I think that part of the criticism of Goldhagen's work, which really has substance (the criticism), is purely methodological. If one digests witnesses' and victims' accounts of the time it becomes obvious that the Germans took pleasure in hurting (both physically and psychologically) and humiliating the Jews far beyond taking their possessions. So Goldhagen, tedious or not, is right here.

(2) Do you think that Germans have abandoned antisemitism (in general), or is it still an integral part of the culture?

It has become worse. Now, post-Holocaust, the Germans OWE the Jews and as we all know, being obliged to somebody breeds contempt and resentment towards the obligee. A very ignoble human trait, but very real, ubiquitous and, so it seems, ineradicable. Of course, nobody in his right mind will be consciously, let alone openly, be antisemitic here. It's called now "our special relationship with Israel" and "standing up for the rights of the Palestinian people (after all, it's only in the best interest of the Jew state if one talks to its enemies)" now. The German sociologist Wolfgang Pohrt called that the "Michel (i.e. the archetypical German) Syndrome". He coined the famous phrase that the Germans, as former perpetrators, feel that it is their duty to "stand with praise and censure at Israel's side as ethical probation officer to keep the victim from committing a second offense." He wrote, too, that the Germans with their obsession with responsibility ("Verantwortungsfimmel") resemble a convicted child molester who thinks he is specifically qualified for a job as kindergarden teacher. Here is more about it.

Please note that I don't believe that Germans are about to bring about another Holocaust. I'm just curious as to what the underlying feelings of Germans are these days.

The underlying feelings are that maybe it's a good idea to let the Arabs/Iranians finish what the Germans had so effectively started and were sadly and callously stopped consummating in May 1945. (A major source for the flagrant antiamericanism here as well, btw.)

My interest was precipitated by the EU funding of Hamas and other Palestinian terrorists--and wanted to know if this is related to antisemitism or not, and if not, what is the cause.

It certainly is. See above.

Regarding your later comment... Promethea, don't think for a second that Europeans and Americans are alike. Americans have a conscience. Why that is so, I can not fathom. One thing that comes to mind is that your forefathers came to America to escape the burden of feudalalism, a system that has shaped the European, and specifically the German, mind like nothing else. Antisemitism is an integral part of it, by the way.

That brings us to the question why the Holocaust happened in Germany, or rather why it was performed by Germans. Curiously enough, it HAPPENED in Poland, but that is a different question. However, I seem to remember having read a theory by one of the early sociologists (Pareto?), saying that the early Germans fought back the Romans under Varus (in ... 9 AC, was it?) and were just never subjected to the mellowing and civilising Roman influence. But that is a somewhat shaky theory, at least at first glance. The Scots weren't either and have never set a foot wrong.

However, I hope I have answered your (very challenging) questions. Sorry for having needed a reminder. As I said, I am getting pre-senile. (Not fishing!)

Jeremiah, I think Hadj Amin is one of the most overlooked persons in the process of shaping the post-WWII world. A fact, which is interesting in itself.
