Dr. Anwar Shukeiri, at the age of 29, was assassinated on June 8, 1939[1] by Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini's Abu Mahmoud band,[2] by tricking him, rushing him out by lying to him his wife was ill.[3] Reason: for speaking out against the radical Mufti and following his moderate father As'ad Shukeiri.

Whereas his brother, Ahmad Shukeiri, allied himself with the Mufti, escaped with him[4] to Beirut and helped his propaganda 1938-39[5]. He testified that he and all who surrounded him prayed for Hitler's victory.[6]
Ahmad Shukeiri helped the Nazis[7][8] at least since Russia entered the war in 1941[9][10].
In 1946, he and another Nazi helper Jamal Husseini had justified the Holocaust.[11] In the UN he has spread anti-Jewish hatred [12] and in Nov. 30 1962 had saluted neo Nazis [13] and promoted them [14] which triggered [15], prompted [16] his removal from UN mid-December of that year by moderate Arabs[17] .

In 1946, Shukairy joined the 'Arab Higher Committee' which was also headed by the ex Mufti. Shukairy got his start in 'politics' in the early 1930s when he belonged to a group of fanatical extremists led by the ex-Mufti. This gang cooperated with the Communists and prior to the Hitler-Stalin Pact sought in every possible way to sabotage the Allied war effort against the Nazis in the Middle East. However, when Soviet Russia joined the Allies, Shukairy's group split with the ommunists, and went all out for Hitler."
