     Question Forum :  Haj Amin al-Husseini Date Posted:  30 - October -  2002




Is it true that the uncle of Yassir Arafat, the Grand Mufti, was a Nazi, and had a 22,000 strong Bosnian Muslim Nazi contingent? And that they massacred many Christians and Jews. I have been told this while debating with Christians, and I know nothing about this. I did a search on google, but only found information by pro-Serbs and Zionists trying to discredit Islam and the Palestinian cause. I would like to know the other side.

There is no question that one of the former Grand Mufti's of Palestine, Haj Amin al-Husseini and Hitler had been in contact with each other and that Hitler did what every other European nation at the time also did, trying to forge alliances. Husseini's sympathies for Hitler have more to do with his antipathies for Britain than with Nazi ideology. After all, Britain had made false promises to various Arab nations during the first world war to set them up against Turkey, and had then betrayed them and given away Palestine to the Zionists. This, however, is where the story ends. 

Your question is the first mention we have heard of Husseini being Arafat's uncle. He does belong to a Husseini clan, a name as common as Smith in England, but when trying to create a Nazi link for Arafat, Zionist propagandists face a slight dilemma in that previously they have tried to deny that he has any legitimate connection to Jerusalem at all, having been born in Cairo. So most of them settled for stating that he learned Nazi teachings from the grand Mufti rather than claiming a family bond - after all, you can't have it both ways.

Equally borne out of the inventive minds of the propagandists is the Bosnian Nazi connection for which the Serbs allegedly wanted to bring Husseini to book. This is one of the more recent "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" approaches of Sharon's Israel which tries to put it across that expulsion and massacres of Muslims in Palestine are entirely justified because Muslims are nasty people as evidenced by others who also wanted to get rid of them. So Israel cooperates with Serbs against Bosnians, with Indians against Muslim Kashmiris etc. Now when it comes right down to it the key question remains: no matter how hard today's Israeli military and politicians try to continue getting credit for once upon a time having been victims, does this given them the unquestionable and eternal right to victimise others?
