Re Arab biographer, Mohammed El Taher and the Mufti:



"Most Israeli and Zionist writers, as well as those who copy-cat them, have maintained a classical line of attack against Haj Amin, namely that he used religion as a political weapon. This is obviously pretty disingenuous, since the whole concept behind the creation of Israel is based on nothing but religion."

This is the first time I hear that secular Hertzl was 'religious.' And what, or how does this last line even refute fact of Mufti's use of religion?


"Haj Amin also continues to be vilified as a pro-Nazi, Hitler-lover, with pictures of him with the F├╝hrer, or with SS Chief Heinrich Himmler, or Foreign Affairs Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop and others in support. To put things into historical perspective, Haj Amin did seek Germany's support against British occupation of Palestine, as well as against its policy of inundating his country with European immigrants of the Jewish faith. While his policy line was not supported by all Palestinians, Haj Amin did not have much choice, since he was being chased by the British before, during and after the Second World War because of his resistance to their colonial policies in Palestine...

Haj Amin was quite certainly aware of the lost love between the Nazis and the Jews in Europe, but neither he, nor his supporters, had any idea about the mass extermination of Jews, Slavs and Gypsies in concentration camps."

Well, well, the well 2017 publicized Kedem photos showing Mufti touring at concentration camp is one of many evidence he knew very well. It has been well documented, his intervention against children trying to escape deaths and go to Palestine. Besides his plan to erect similar crematoria in Dotan Valley. Or what does calling: 'kill the J...s wherever they are' have to do with supposedly having 'no choice?'
