A document released by the National Archives in Washington “Hitlers Shadow” seems to suggest that the French were responsible for the escape of the father of Arab terror in 1946 from France to the Middle East.
It was 1946. World War II had just ended. The Nuremberg trials of Nazis and war criminals was in full swing. The Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini had joined Hitler in Berlin in 1940 when the war started. He came with the promise of becoming Hitler’s new king of Palestine.
Appointed by the British as Chief Mufti of Jerusalem in 1921, the Mufti was the organizer of endless terror against the Jews of Palestine, culminating in the riots of 1929 where 133 Jews were slaughtered, 69 in Hebron alone and many others wounded in all parts of Eretz Yisrael.
September 1939. Germany invades Poland and the Mufti is overjoyed by Hitler’s success and travels to Berlin in 1941 to bless and join the Third Reich. From 1941 to 1945, the Mufti recruits Muslim soldiers for Nazi Germany. They are to be his army when General Rommel conquers the Holy Land and establishes the new Arab kingdom of the Third Reich. As the National Archives document describes it, Hitler had sent his killing squads, called: Einszatzgruppen, to Greece. They were poised and waiting for Rommel’s certain victory over the Jews in Palestine. Then they would step in to finish the job.
It seems G-d had other plans. General Rommel was defeated in Egypt, as he was preparing to enter the Holy Land, at the Battle of El Alamein, November 2, 1942. With Rommel’s defeat and retreat (against Hitlers orders) the Muftis dream of being King over Palestine was smashed and the killing squads in the Greek islands were called home. A little known fact only found out by the United States OSS (Secret Service) after the war.
The French Help the Mufti Escape War Crimes
The Mufti was captured after the war in 1945 and put in prison in France. Yugoslavia sought to indict the Mufti as a war criminal for his role in recruiting 20,000 Muslim volunteers for the SS, who participated in the killing of 750,000 Serbs, 60,000 Jews and 26,000 Roma in Croatia and Hungary. He escaped from French detention in 1946, however, and continued his fight against the Jews from Cairo and later Beirut. He died in 1974.
Declassified Material Available For the First Time
The National Archives Publication: “Hitlers Shadow” is declassified material from the National Archives of OSS (Secret Service), records of army staff and CIA files from during and after World War II. (Click Link at end of this article to download the document)
Look at Chapters 1, 2 and 3. You won’t put it down. Chapter three, particularly is amazing. The CIA was tracing German officers as they fled after the war. Guess where they landed. Did Hitler really die in 1945? See Chapter one. When it was clear that the Germans were losing in 1945- Why were they signing an employment contract with the Mufti that would continue well after 1945?
As if in direct relation to what happened in France last week, look at page 21:
“In October 1945 Arthur Giles (who used the title Bey), British head of Palestine’s Criminal Investigation Division, told the assistant American military attaché in Cairo that the Mufti might be the only person who could unite the Palestine Arabs and “cool off the Zionists…. Of course, we can’t do it, but it might not be such a damn bad idea at that.” French intelligence officials, bitter at France’s loss of colonial territory in the Middle East, said they would enjoy having the Mufti around to embarrass the British.
“Husseini was well treated in Paris. Meanwhile, Palestinian Arab leaders and various Muslim extremists agitated to bring him back to the Middle East. According to the American military attaché in Cairo, this plan initially embarrassed moderate officials in the Arab League. But as prospects for a peaceful settlement in the British Mandate for Palestine declined and as other Arab prisoners were released or escaped (Gailani escaped), sentiment changed. A delegate of the Palestine Higher Arab Committee went to Paris in June 1946 and told Husseini to get ready for a little trip.
“According to another American source in Syria, at a meeting in the Egyptian Embassy in Paris, the ambassador, the ministers of Syria and Lebanon, and a few Arab leaders from Morocco and Algeria worked out the details of Husseini’s escape. The French government learned of, or was informed of, the plan, but chose not to intervene in order to avoid offending the Arabs of North Africa. Husseini flew to Syria, then went via Aleppo and Beirut to Alexandria, Egypt.”
For you who aren’t familiar with the facts, Mr. Mufti fled to the Middle East where he formed the PLF (PLO), the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and the many other terror groups which plague Israel and the Jews until today. He was instrumental in having Nasser invite Nazi brass to Egypt in 1953. Hundreds of ex German officers answered the call. The Germans trained Nasser’s armies.
They trained the Palestinian PLF and Arab terror groups in the guerilla warfare techniques of Hitler’s guerilla “Werwulf Division”. They reorganized Egyptian intelligence. They began a vicious public relations war against the Jews and Israel. They built Nasser missiles and produced (with France’s help) poison gas, which came to light in July of 1962 when Egypt fired its missiles for the first time.
On Page 29, we find a plan from late 1960 and early 1961 to blackmail prominent Jews (in Israel’s government?) who helped the Germans during the war:
“A CIA official in Munich had an informal discussion in March 1961 with a BND official codenamed Glueckrath, who claimed that a grand council of the Egyptian SS group had met several times in late 1960 and January 1961. Brunner (from Syria) had attended, along with Fritz Katzmann, former Higher SS and Police Leader in Galicia, who had gone into hiding at the end of the war and escaped justice.
Other participants named were former Nazi propagandist Johannes von Leers, a major from Egyptian intelligence, and a lieutenant colonel from the Egyptian Ministry of Information. At this meeting Brunner claimed to possess a long list of Jews who had collaborated with the Nazis during the Final Solution; they could now be blackmailed to help finance the SS group. Von Leers said that if this blackmail failed, he at least wanted to publish the list.”
Not The First National Disaster To Strike Israel’s Enemies
After the terrible tsunami March 10, 2011 in Japan, I was curious why it might be that a country that protected the Jews during World War II would suffer such a calamitous destruction, so much so, that it’s reported that parts of Japan sank 2 feet into the sea.
I googled the words: Japan and Palestinian Authority and came up with links discussing aid that Japan gives to the enemies of Israel, the Palestinian Authority. Millions of (Yen) of help.
