Very Interesting Indeed

I've been thinking alot lately, almost too much, about the situation at school with the sign in which the Palestinian Club compares Jews and Nazis. All too often we see the ignorant righteous ones and not so righteous and ignorant of the world comparing Israel to the Nazis. Wether or not comparing Zionism to Nazism is fair, is a debate in of itself. However we spend too little time stressing the links between Palestinian/Arab Nationalism and Nazism. I found this article on Newsmax.com which I think every person should read. Its a little old (published in 03'), but that shouldn't be a problem. It should also be worth mentioning that Haj Amin al-Husseini WAS Palestinian Nationalism from around the 1930's till 1948. Husseini was the equivalent of Arafat in his days to sum it up.

The Nazi Origins of Modern Arab Terror
Chuck Morse - Tuesday, March 4, 2003


The agenda and political faith of Saddam Hussein, Yasir Arafat, Osama bin Laden, Hamas and the rest of the international Islamic terrorists can be traced back to World War II and two key figures, Adolf Hitler and Amin al-Husseini, known as the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.

Much has been written about the Mufti, all well-documented, including chapters by such prominent authors as Connor Cruise O’Brien, former Irish ambassador to the U.N. Mountains of documented evidence is out there and available to anyone who cares to look.

The Nuremberg and Eichmann trials revealed that Nazi official Adolf Eichmann met with the British-appointed Mufti in Palestine in 1937. Following this meeting, the Mufti would become essentially an agent of Nazi Germany charged with the funding and organizing of pro-Nazi organizations in Egypt, Syria, Palestine and Iraq.

In 1941, along with Rashid Ali and Khairallah Tulfah, Saddam Hussein’s uncle, guardian and later father-in-law, the Mufti instigated a pro-Nazi coup in Iraq with Nazi-supplied weapons and aircraft. After the coup failed, the Mufti fled to Berlin, where he would hold his first of several meetings with Adolf Hitler.
At this meeting the Mufti was reported to have dissuaded Hitler from considering the deportation of the Jews to Palestine. Instead, the Mufti advocated and even possibly suggested what came to be known as the final solution against the Jews. In 1942, the Mufti would intervene and stop the Nazis from exchanging 10,000 Jewish children for Nazi POWs.

The Mufti’s activities in Nazi Germany and occupied Europe would set the stage for today’s Islamic terrorism. On April 25, 1941, the Nazis sent the Mufti to Nazi-occupied Bosnia, where he assumed the title “Protector of Islam.”

On Feb. 10, 1943, Hitler ordered the creation of the Nazi SS Division Hanzar and approximately 100,000 Bosnian Muslims volunteered. The Mufti, serving as chief administrator, referred to these Nazi-Muslim brigades as “the cream of Islam.”

The Hanzars, deriving their name from the type of dagger carried by Ottoman officers, played an active role in the extermination of Christians and Jews in the Balkans. The Mufti attempted to implement the Nazi “Pejani Plan,” which called for the extermination of the Christian Serbs and which the Nazis eventually abandoned.
All in all, the Bosnian Muslim Hanzars assisted in the extermination of approximately 200,000 Christian Serbs, 40,000 Gypsies and 22,000 Jews.

In 1943, Hitler appointed the Mufti as head of a Nazi-Muslim government in exile. From his headquarters in Berlin, a confiscated Jewish mansion, the Mufti laid out plans for a concentration camp for Jews near Nablus in Palestine modeled after Auschwitz. Photos exist of the Mufti touring Auschwitz with Heinrich Himmler.
Nazi attitudes regarding Islam were perhaps best expressed by Himmler, who is reported to have stated: “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.”
Deriving financial support from a fund of confiscated Jewish money known as the Sonderfund, the Mufti was installed as head of the Nazi-created Islamic Institute (Islamische Zentralinstitut) in Dresden, where he would begin the process of educating future Islamic leaders in Nazi ideology.

To spur them on to victory, the Mufti delivered a speech in Berlin on March 1, 1944, to an audience of Hanzar troops in which he said: “Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases god, history, and religion. This saves your honor. God is with you.”

On that day, future Islamic terrorists received their marching orders.

Elder,
Thanks for sharing the article! As for the sign--I spoke with Michele yesterday and this is what we're up to: we are going to send two student delegates to the first meeting The Palestinian Club has this semester to talk about why we are so offended blah blah blah and then they will vote on whether to take it down or not, as was decided at the meeting with Dean Escoci, Jerrell Robinson, and the co-presidents of The Palestinian Club. Steve or I will send TPC presidents an e-mail (cc'ed to Jerrell and the Dean, too) asking when they are going to have the meeting blah blah blah to show that we're on top of it. Steve, Nukes, and I (the three who were present at the meeting) will sit down with Michele and Rachel Fish of the David Project to come up with how we are going to present ourselves [insert blah blah blahs here].
To be very blunt--we're not happy with this result. However, we have to be careful and strategic with our next step. You know the whole intimidation thing going on at Columbia (or that went on at Columbia)? Well, that was all over and it was like opening a can of worms. No one here really wants us to do something like that.
What Michele would like is for us to write articles. Constantly. And for us to submit them to all the campus publications. After that (or maybe simultaneously) we should write for off-campus publications (but there's lots of PR junk we have to go through with the PR department before submitting anything if it's being written as a Hillel person). Of course, this writing process should not be done in isolation. It should be a few of us getting together and working on it kinda thing.
The articles will help not only raise awareness on campus of the situation, but help load piles of pressure onto TPC to take it down or do something if everyone at school knows about the sign (and they all don't).
We also have to be very careful about watching our goal. There're tons of things we can do, but if they're not going to ultimately achieve what we want, they aren't worth it. Duh, sorry. But you know what I mean. And I still think doing a hate-awareness/anti-hate symposium or art fair is a great idea.

And TM--the sign says "History Repeats: Look What Hitler Taught Some of His Victims" in letters written in dripping paint and a Magen David morphing into a Swastika at the bottom.

1948 - 1967 - Egypt and Jordan occupy West Bank and Gaza - do not offer Palestinians a state. Palestinians say nothing, attack Israel.

1967 - Israel wins West Bank and Gaza in war: Arab states meet in Khartoum and reject all discussion with Israel about peace. Palestinians agree.

1970 - Jordan kills more Palestinians in one month (September) than have been killed by Israel in 56 years of war. Palestinians say nothing, attack Israel.

1991 - 1992 - Kuwait deports and evicts 300,000 Palestinians who had lived there for years, building the country. Palestinians say nothing, attack Israel.

2000 - Israel offers Palestinians a state. Palestinians reject offer, attack Israel.

2004 - Palestinian activists hang banners equating Jews with Nazis.
