I am surprised Dr Pipes only takes this back a century. Surely Hosseini's monstrous hatred of the Jews didn't just start with him. Was he not following the example of Mohammed and the teachings of the Koran?

Daniel Pipes replies:

No, Husseini was not just following traditional ways but had invented something new in his genocidal antisemitism. In this, he parallels Hitler as an innovator.
