Regarding your response to my comments. I'm certainly aware of the malevolent influence of the Mufti of Jerusalem (Haj Amin al Husseini) and his collaboration with Nazi Germany during World War II. However, I recall reading a few years back of some disturbing allegations made that it was he who put the idea of the Final Solution into Hitler's head. Can this be clarified.
If this allegation is substantiated, the Mufti is guilty by way of consultation and design in the implementation of the Final Solution. Why wasn't this man tried as a war criminal? I know of others who were tried at Nuremburg and Tokyo for lesser offences.
