The Real Roots of Arab / Palestinian Nazism
Posted by Oyster on August 21, 2006
One of the common lines of rhetoric you’ll hear Palestinians use is, “We did not perpetrate the Holocaust, so why are you punishing the Palestinians for Europe’s problems? We had nothing to do with it!”
And these are then the same people who will wave Israeli flags with the swastika replacing the Star of David at anti-Israel rallies. Cuz, you know, they are so anti-fascist and not Antisemitic ( HaShem help you all if anyone replies with the straw-man line of, “but, but, but… Arabs are semites, too!”).
It’s a shame that Marnina Cherkin and Amy M. Stein of the Central Pacific Region of the Anti-Defamation League, in this context, found their calling in criticizing pro-Israel activists for being meanies in this recent article in the J Weekly, and completely failed to report on the blatantly Antisemitic material that was photographed at the August 12th Anti-Israel rally in SF. Of course those advocating for Israel should be civil and not stoop to the level of those who gleefully desire Israel’s destruction. But isn’t the ADL’s primary mission to fight Antisemitism? Or is that too parochial? On a related note, here are photos of the pro-Israel side of the rally (since ZombieTime focuses on the Antisemitic material on the Pali side) from my long-time friend Sasha. (And if their article wasn’t enough, their website has the inane line, “Northern California (including San Jose, but excluding Bakersfield)”. What the hell?!)
The proverbial elephant in the room on this issue is the Jew-hating Grand Mufti Al-Husseini of Jerusalem, the most influential Arab leader in the Middle East during the 1920’s through 1940’s. He was a personal friend of Adolf Hitler, helped align the Arab and Muslim world with the Axis forces with propaganda, and even formed Muslim SS death-squads to cleanse Yugoslavia of Jews. Locally, he was the architect of the bloody anti-Jewish riots in British Mandatory Palestine during the 1920’s. This is when Hebron, one of the four holy cities of Judaism, where many of our Patriarchs and Matriarchs are buried, was made Judenrein for the first time in thousands of years. Every Jew was either butchered or chased out of the city. Oh, yeah, and he’s the uncle of Yasser Arafat.
Please read more about this direct link between the birth of Arab/Palestinian nationalism and Nazism, and never let people try to get away
with the line that there was no connection between the Arab’s politics and Nazism. (side note: This is one reason why the phrase “Islamo-fascist” is not without basis. And the phrase is not bigoted. The same way no one would hesistate to call the JDL a ‘Jewish terrorist group’, there’s nothing inherently wrong with calling a group of Muslims who pervert Islam to sanction terrorism ‘Islamic terrorists, or fascists’)
