Alteady in 1935, weeks after Arabs in Haifa founded the Nazi Club "Red Moon," Arabs drew swastika in Jerusalem with inscription 'Viva Hitler.'

From the newspaper 'Der Tog', July 17, 1935:

Swastika, with the inscription "Long live (sic) Hitler" on the Jerusalem Gate

Jerusalem, July 17. - A swastika sign, with the inscription "Viva Hitler!" [sic], appeared today on the cemetery's gate, opposite the tombs of the Jewish kings. Apparently, the Arabs painted the Hitlerite swastika there.

Der Tog⁩ - ⁨דער טאג⁩, 18 July 1935.

סװאסטיקא, מיט אױפשריפט "זאל [כך] לעבן היטלר" אויף ירושלימ'ער טויער

ירושלים, יולי 17 (איטא). — א סװאסטיקא־צײכען, מיט דער אויפשריפט "וױװא היטלער!", האט זיך דא הײנט באװיזען אויף דעם צימטויער, קעגענאיבער די קברים פון די אידישע מלכים. עס וױיסט אויס, אז דאס האבען אראבער דארט אויסגעמאלען דעם היטלעריסטישען האקענ־קרייץ.


Weeks earlier, it was reported about the Arab Nazi Club in Haifa:

'Arabs in Haifa Form Nazi Club; Well Financed.' JTA, 1 July 1935.
