The pro-Palestine supporters like to call Israelis “Nazis” and Israel “An Apartheid State.” The exciting thing is the actual opposite is true and it is Arabs who call themselves Palestinian and Arab regimes are the real Nazis and many worse than the former South African regime than Israel. The history also has some other actors that participate in the false narratives as well as actual participation with these Arab Nazis.
Let’s examine a few relevant facts.
Jordan’s Controversial Birth: Pertinent Facts:
The Arab country of Jordan was formed by the breach of international law (San Remo conference of the League of Nations) by Great Britain in 1921 when they illegally split up Mandate Palestine into two states giving away seventy-five percent of the land, creating Trans Jordan, and forbidding Jews to live there. What is today Jordan had been included as designated for a Jewish homeland. The Arab ruler King Abdullah first gladly honored this rule of banning Jews, and today, despite peace between Jordan and Israel, it is still forbidden by law to sell land or any real estate to Jews, with the penalty for doing so being death. Jordan is regarded as a “moderate” Arab country. In Israel, Arabs are free to buy and sell real estate to anyone they wish, except in area C of “the West Bank,” controlled by the Palestinian Authority, where Jews cannot even visit, never mind buying real estate.
The 1948 War: Intentions Unveiled:
On November 29, 1947, when the UN created the resolution whereby Israel declared its rebirth, the surrounding Arab states declared war aimed not just at thwarting Israel’s formation but also harbored intentions of a second Holocaust, seeking the annihilation of the Jewish population. The Secretary-General of The Arab League, Azzam Pasha, declared in 1947, “Were a war to take place with the proposed establishment of a Jewish state, it would lead to a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacre and the Crusades.”
Echoes of Antisemitism: The 1967 War
Abdel Nasser, the president of Egypt who ignited the 1967 war against Israel, did so according to the award-winning historian Matthias Küntzel in his book “Jihad and Jew Hatred, Nazism and the Roots of 911.” Küntzel argues “that the main cause of both Nasser’s decision to threaten to destroy Israel in 1967, and the subsequent enthusiasm of his followers, was an ‘antisemitic impulse as it carried over from the Nazi period to the post-war period and then to the next generation.’ It was not Israel or Zionism that provoked the 1967 war but the ‘latent anti-Zionism and antisemitism in the Arab world’ and the fact that Nasser was gripped by the same destructive sentiments that whipped up the masses.” Newsreel footage of the whipped-up masses on the streets of Cairo in 1967, you can see the crowds screaming “Zhabh alyahud” (Slaughter the Jews) after they listen to the speeches of Abdel Nasser and other Arab leaders in the Middle East.
Palestinian Nazism: Historical Alliances
Let us examine the Palestinian Nazism, which is and was even more pervasive. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Husseini, a Palestinian Arab leader, was appointed to his position by the British in 1918. Husseini was the co-founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is notorious for its Jew hate and Nazi thinking. Today’s Hamas is a member organization of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Unfortunately, the first High Commissioner of the Palestine Mandate, Sir Herbert Samuel, who was Jewish, made this inferior choice to allow Husseini to lead the Arab community. This turned out to be a monumental mistake and caused the strife in the Holy Land that we still witness today. Even after Great Britain made this initial mistake, instead of correcting their error by removing him once they knew of his Jew hate, they used Haj Amin Husseini to hold on to their colonial interests by causing strife between the two communities.
In the 1930s, Haj Amin Husseini was well-known as an ally of Hitler. Husseini created two divisions of the Nazi SS in the Muslim Balkan. Husseini also conspired with Adolf Eichmann to murder all the Jews of Hungary; this history is well documented. The British policy was to create havoc by allowing terror to the Jewish community despite Britain’s clear knowledge of Husseini’s Nazi connections. In 1939 when Britain and France declared war on Nazi Germany, the British only then issued arrest warrants for Husseini, as then he became a direct threat to the British. Husseini escaped capture and fled the Holy Land. The Jews had to suffer terror, death, and destruction for twenty years when the British knew full well who was causing the mayhem. Interestingly, after Husseini fled, there was complete calm in the Palestine Mandate between 1940 and 1945. The British have a lot to answer for how they betrayed the Jews by not only reneging on their promises but also allowing terrorism to manifest itself to maintain their colonial influence in the world.
Modern Leaders and Holocaust Denial:
Let us fast forward to the more recent past. Yasser Arafat, the former founder and leader of the PLO, was inspired by Haj Amin Husseini and was trained by him in terror methods when they worked together in Egypt 1945-46. Husseini was known to be proud of him. Mahmood Abbas, the current leader of the PLO, is infamous for his Holocaust denial. He wrote a thesis and received his doctorate from Patrice Lumumba University (now known as the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia). The central theme of this thesis is that the Zionist movement and its leaders were “fundamental partners” of the Nazis and equally responsible for the Holocaust. Interestingly, the same logic is followed today, claiming that the October 7th massacre of Jews was their fault. Hamas claims that the Israel Air Force and Israel Defense Forces killed their people.
Another interesting fact is that one of the best-selling books in the Middle East is Adolf Hitler’s autobiography “Mein Kampf,” printed in Arabic. During the current Gaza war, a copy was found in a child’s bedroom with the words “kill the Jews” in the book underlined. Several million copies of “Mein Kampf” have been sold throughout the Arab and Muslim world over the past few decades.
Apartheid Allegations: Debunked Myths
“Apartheid” is a magic term for the pro-Palestine crowd. In 1948, nearly one million Jews were living in many Arab and Muslim countries in North Africa. When Israel was founded, as punishment to the “Jews,” they were not only expelled, but their homes, businesses, and money were all stolen from them. Around 900,000 Jews were forced to flee, with most settling in the new state of Israel. In Israel, there are today 1.7 million Arabs, mainly Muslim, which is around six times more than when the State of Israel was founded. Arabs in Israel are doctors, accountants, and businesspeople, with even a Supreme Court judge and members of the Israeli parliament all having equal rights under the law. So, the idea that Israel is an apartheid country is not true. Israel has been accused of Genocide for many years. Gaza’s population has more than doubled in the last 15 years. In the “West Bank,” the population has grown from five hundred and eighty-five thousand in 1967 to nearly three million. That is a weird type of Genocide. Yet if one goes to a mosque on Friday afternoon in Gaza City or Ramallah, one will hear sermons about destroying Israel and killing the Jews. This can be seen on video in Arabic translated into English at www.MEMRI.org for anyone worldwide to see.
Selective Ignorance: The Real Root of Conflict
The bottom line is Jews cannot live peaceably in any Arab country other than Morocco. Arabs have full rights in Israel. Nazism and Jew hate is part and parcel of the Middle East Arab culture and is the real reason for the conflict.
The evidence is overwhelming, but what is just as bad is that the Western countries choose to ignore this evidence and participate in this travesty by engaging with these people and believing the lies and propaganda that somehow a Palestinian State will solve anything. This is no different than the world’s indifference to the plight of the Jews before and during the Holocaust.
