The far left like to call patriots who criticize Islam, Nazis This is because they know its a debate killer. Nothing could be further away from the truth. If those patriots had been alive during WW2 they would be the 1st to take arms to protect Britain and the freedoms of its people. Were as those leftist who make the accusations would most likely be appeasers just like today and join their Muslim allies as Nazi collaborators to save their own skin.
Muhammad Amin al-Husayni was the Grand Mufti (chief Muslim Islamic legal religious authority) of Jerusalem under the political authority of the British Mandate in Palestine from 1921 to 1937. He promoted himself as a pan-Arab and Muslim religious leader and at the time was probably the most well known and influential Arab in the world. In his position of power he promoted Arab nationalism, would incite violence against the British, and preach Jew-hatred and the annihilation of the Jews of British Mandatory Palestine.
As Grand Mufti his position carried overarching religious and moral authority throughout Palestine. Becoming president of the newly established Supreme Muslim Council (al-Majlis al-Islami al-A’ala), a position that controlled the shari’a courts, approved the content of education for religious schools and orphanages, and supervised religious financial advisory boards and the use of funds (waqf) for maintenance and renovation of religious sites and institutions, and for assistance to the poor. Control over these funds enhanced his authority within Palestine and among leaders of other Arab states and the Muslim World.
Following the outbreak of World War 2 and Britain’s attention focused elsewhere. Muhammad Amin al-Husayni and his Arab nationalists attempted to overthrow the British rulers of Palestine. This attempted failed and the Mufti was forced to flee into exile. Wanted by the British and sharing the same imense hatred for the Jews, it was only a matter of time before the Mufti as voice of the Arab Muslims turned up in Hitlers Nazi Germany. Making such a good impression, he was given a propaganda role for the Nazi’s and his own radio program aimed at Arabs from where he issued a fatwa declaring Muslims at war against the British.
His propaganda position and subsequent recruitment of Muslims to the Nazi cause saw his position elevated and a strong bond formed with Himler and the SS. He played a pivotal role in the decision to commit genocide of the Jews. Hitler was reportedly content with deporting the Jews out of Europe to Palestine. Husseini perceived this as a threat to his stronghold in Palestine and pushed successfully for the extermination of the European Jews.
While in Bosnia, Amin Al-Husseini takes the title “Protector of Islam”. One hundred thousand (100,000) Bosnian Muslims join the Nazi ranks. They seek Nazi approval to establish autonomous Nazi protectorate for Bosnian Muslims.Bosnian ethnic cleansing under Amin al Husseini: . Orthodox Christian Serbs: 200,000 killed. Jewish Bosnians: 22,000 killed . Gypsies: over 40,000 killed
Amin Al Husseini creates the Hanzar Division of Nazi Muslim Soldiers in Bosnia, which he calls ‘the cream of Islam’. It becomes the largest division of the Third Reich Army (26,000 men) and participates actively in the genocide of Serbian and Jewish populations.
