Decades to "apartheid" slur by pro-Nazi, A. Shukeiri (Shukairy)

{6 years before 1967 war and 41 years before security anti terror defense barrier}

Ahmad al-Shuqairy, ash-Shuqayri, Shukeiri, Shukeiry , Shukairi, Shukairy:

* At WW2, he and his friends used to pray for Hitler's victories and for the defeat of Britain. (His own admission).

* Escaped in the 1940's with his associate Al-husseini, mufti of Jerusalem, Hitler's ally.

* He "had suggested that Palestinian and Libya's ulama' invite Mussolini to adopt a policy of non-cooperation with zionists and to treat them as the nazis were doing." (Arab source)

* Was a Nazis apologist.

* In the 1930s was active in ex-Mufti's extremist gang, first joining the Russians, sabotage the allies' efforts against the Nazis. Then after Stalin began fighting the Nazis, the gang left the Russians, switching over to Hitler's side, to support Hitler's anti Jewish war.

* 1946: Before the partition and almost 2 years before the modern State of Israel was established, he spoke about "race." About a decade later he said Jews are not a race nor a nation.

* End of 1940s, "compared Israel's economic planning for Jerusalem with Hitler's planning for a Nazi ruled Europe".

* in 1946, after having joined the Arab Higher Committee, he restituted Nazi Goebbele's ides.

* In 1952 compared plight of living Arab refugees to millions perished in WW2.

* October, 1960 compared Israel to nazis, adopting holocaust denier' Issa Nakhleh's epithets (who initiated vilifying falsely racialized lingo in June 17, 1949).

* Invented the "apartheid" slur in Oct. 1961 at his UN diatribe (UN's 16th session). He also -at the same speech- objected to Eichmann being tried in Israel. It was on October 17, 1961.

Almost 6 years before the six-day war which some call it an "occupation". Some 41 years before the security barrier anti terror defense erected in Israel. He used the then momentum in U.N. against South Africa. So he just compared it to S.A. So he just compared it to S.A. That meme he uttered after already branding Israel with Nazi label, then he "dropped" "levels down." At the same speech of "apartheid" comparison, he objected to Eichmann being tried in Israel. Then again later on he jumped up levels and said: "nastier than Fascism, uglier than Nazism." (Which its roots are in Holocaust-denier Issa Nakhleh's wording in June-17-1949, who by Nov-14-1972 said Hitler did "not" kill Jews).

That and much like this, is of his legacy of wild labels-slapping, since enshrined in PLO charter.

* In Dec. 6, 1961, he denied there was any anti Semitism in the world claiming zionists "created" it. At the time he also questioned a Catholic member's loyalty stating he's Jewish. He also argued he's not Anti Semite because he's Semitic himself...

* In Nov. 30, 1962 praised, saluted infamous nazi gang Tacuara (while he cited that the New York Times recently wrote about this nationalist movement, it clearly stated in that Sep-16-1962 headline that it was nazi), some 5 months after (on 21 June 1962) they brutally attacked, carved swastikas on a 19 year old student as a "revenge" for eliminating Eichmann. He was fired by Saudi Arabia from UN post shortly after, over this. Apparently this was too much even for them to handle.

* Dec.1962: Just before being fired from UN over saluting Nazi gang, he led an attack to pin Nazism label on Zionism.

* In 1967: vowed to lead the vanguard of his troops into the Israeli sector of Jerusalem and set up a "purely Arab government" there for all of Palestine.

* Called to annihilate Jews in Israel, 1967: 'a war of extermination in which not a man, woman, or child should be spared,' observing: "none of them will survive." (After Arabs' defeated war, he complained why he is singled out since this was Arab outlook as a whole).
