"PM Netanyahu's Speech at the 37th Zionist Congres" - ISRAEL

Reader comment on item: Middle East Provocations and Predictions

Dear Daniel Pipes,

Here is a great, impassioned, speech by Netanyahu given yesterday. It does not have the smoothness of a native speaker of English, or a speech which has been carefully written, and the read out loud. But it purports to cover ten (10) lies which the enemies of Israel expound without the benefit of history (assuming that's possible, of course).

Strtanglely, the "media" appears to focus on the single issue of the 1941 meeting of Hitler and Hussein, and how much blame each had for the Holocaust, and if Netanyahu is "truthful" himself - as if one could give Hitler 99% of the credit, or blame, and the rest to the Mufti of Jerusalem.

Since you yourself, like Netanyahu, are the son of a Historian, and also versed in this aspect of the controvesry, I thought it would be enlightening if you yourself expounded on this point, or the rest of the speech which, by the way, I think, is brilliant.

PS: Incidentally, I again wish to recommend that "Greater Syria" be now considered also as a solution to the "Palestinian Question" - What Is to Be Done - with the UN designated, eternal, "Palestinian Refugees."

Daniel Pipes replies:

I do find that Netanyahu speaks English like a native speaker.

As for the Husseini-Hitler topic: I have done no research on this so merely take my cues from others. I sympathize with the Netanyahu-Schwanitz interpretation that Husseini had a role in pushing the Nazis toward the Final Solution.
