Mufti of Jerusalem Hajj
Amin's Role as an Instigator of the Shoah (Holocaust)
[2 December 2003]
There is overwhelming documentation of the role of Hajj Amin al-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem, as a leading instigator of Nazi mass murders.
For example, during UN Security Council discussions in 1947, the Nation Associates, which owned what is now The Nation magazine, presented photostats of letters written by Hajj Amin al-Husseini, proving his complicity in the murder of hundreds of thousands of Jews. The text of one such letter is posted below.
As you read this letter, please note the understated language. The Mufti was arguing against allowing Hungarian Jews to "escape" (his term). Instead they should be sent "to other countries where they would find themselves under active control, for example, in Poland." The phrase of note is "active control." Poland was the site of Chelmno, Treblinka, Sobibór, Majdanek, Belzec and of course Auschwitz-Birkenau, to name just the six biggest death camps. All of my Polish relatives succumbed to "active control" at these Nazi death camps.
Due to the September 13th crash of my computer,
we lost the jpeg file of the actual photostat of the above document.
However, that the Nation did indeed submit such evidence is attested
to by the current Nation publisher, Victor Navasky. Navasky, though
fervently anti-Israel, had the honesty to confirm that the Nation
Associates produced such documents. On the other hand, as quoted
whitewashed the Mufti's Nazism by describing him as a collaborator.
Collaborators do not organize SS divisions of tens of thousands of
Bosnian Muslims who slaughter *many thousands* of Yugoslav Serbs, Jews and
'Gypsies'. Just look at the pictures in the article, "Himmler was
their defender." Not only did the Mufti, Hajj Amin al-Husseini,
organize the Nazi Waffen SS divisions in Yugoslavia, he was adored by
the Nazi-Islamist troops.
As demonstrated by the Mufti's appeal to the Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, posted above, Hajj Amin was a fanatical enough Nazi - and a powerful enough Nazi - to instigate the murder of 400,000 Jews with a letter, according to The Nation Associates.
One letter written. 400,000 human beings dead. A terrible silence.
Or, to put it another way, at least one out of every 15 Jews killed in the Holocaust was killed with the top-level involvement of the Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin al-Husseini. (This doesn't count all the other human beings he helped kill, such as the Serbs, Jews and 'Gypsies' slaughtered by his Waffen SS troops in Bosnia and Croatia.)
By murdering his Arab opponents, and
through the help given him by Britain, Hajj Amin controlled the Arab
movement in Britain's Palestine Mandate area with an iron hand.
Here is the quote from Nation publisher Victor Navasky, who mixes some truth and some whitewashing of a Nazi leader, perhaps because said leader was a Palestinian Arab:
The following is testimony
from the trial of Holocaust chief Adolph Eichmann concerning his
relationship with the Mufti, Hajj Amin al-Husseini. We have not seen
the original document; however the Website which posted it has proven
accurate in the past.
Dieter Wisliceny was Adolph Eichmann's representative in Bratislava:
