Backgrounder: Hajj Amin al-Husseini  (30 October 2015)


"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu caused a storm of controversy on October 20 by quoting Hajj Amin al-Husseini, the infamous grand mufti of Jerusalem during the interwar years, as having told Adolf Hitler in 1941 to 'burn' rather than deport the Jews of Europe, insinuating that this influenced the unfolding Nazi genocide.

Mufti Advised Hitler on Holocaust  (21 October 2015)

Irene Sendler the Hidden Holocaust Hero  (16 August 2013)

"Recent memorial commemorations for the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising has sparked new interest into the actions of Polish non-Jews who assisted their country's Jews during the Nazi occupation.

One such rescuer, Irena Sendler, managed to save over 3000 Jewish lives..."

The Holocaust's Most Vicious Killers  (19 January 2011)


"During the Holocaust, one group of killers stood out as more vicious, murderous, and bloodthirsty than all others. The Ustasha of Yugoslavia was a Muslim-Catholic alliance of Nazi killers so beastly that even Nazi officials in Berlin were horrified. The Ustasha and three related crack divisions of Arab-Nazi Waffen SS comprised of tens of thousands of Muslim volunteers and terrorized people of all faiths in Yugoslavia. In large measure, these murder machines emerged through the efforts of the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin al-Husseini. The grand mufti was on a mission to accelerate the extermination of all Jews everywhere. His partner was Adolf Hitler. The epic story of this alliance is one that began in Jerusalem, traveled to Baghdad, culminated in the Balkans, and ultimately spread across all Europe..."
