Netanyahu on Hitler and Husseini

Reader comment on item: Ending a Century of Palestinian Rejectionism

I do not think that Hitler needed the promptings and advice of Haj Amin Al-Husseini to launch the Final Solution. While Husseini's hatred of the Jews is well-documented and Dr. Pipes is correct to point it out, Hitler had a poisonous mind since long before he left his native Austria. Blame Husseini for the murders in Hebron and such places back in the interwar years and feeding the desire to throw the Jews into the Med; but Hitler bears the ultimate responsibility for the Holocaust.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Everyone agrees that Hitler bears ultimate responsibility for the Holocaust. The issue is where the genocidal idea came from.
