1945: le mufti aurait pu calmer les sionistes, une bonne idée selon un officiel britannique

"Le rapport indique qu'en octobre 1945 le responsable de la division britannique chargé des enquêtes criminelles en Palestine avait confié à l'assistant de l'attaché militaire américain au Caire qu'il était probable que le mufti soit la seule force capable d'unir les Arabes de Palestine et de "calmer les sionistes. Bien sûr, nous ne pouvons pas le faire, mais ça pourrait ne pas être une si idée mauvaise idée que ça"."

Les documents récemment déclassifiés aux Etats-Unis confirment la collaboration et l'affinité de vues entre le mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini et les nazis et en particulier leur but commun d'exterminer les 350.000 Juifs de Palestine.  Sans oublier les sommes astronomiques que le mufti recevait de ses amis nazis.  On se demande combien de journaux européens vont rapporter ces informations.

In chilling detail, the report also elaborates on the close working relationship between Nazi leaders and the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, who later claimed that he sought refuge in wartime Germany only to avoid arrest by the British.

In fact, the report says, the Muslim leader was paid “an absolute fortune” of 50,000 marks a month (when a German field marshal was making 25,000 marks a year). It also said he energetically recruited Muslims for the SS, the Nazi Party’s elite military command, and was promised that he would be installed as the leader of Palestine after German troops drove out the British and exterminated more than 350,000 Jews there.

On Nov. 28, 1941, the authors say, Hitler told Mr. Husseini that the Afrika Corps and German troops deployed from the Caucasus region would liberate Arabs in the Middle East and that “Germany’s only objective there would be the destruction of the Jews.”

The report details how Mr. Husseini himself was allowed to flee after the war to Syria — he was in the custody of the French, who did not want to alienate Middle East regimes — and how high-ranking Nazis escaped from Germany to become advisers to anti-Israeli Arab leaders and “were able to carry on and transmit to others Nazi racial-ideological anti-Semitism.”

“You have an actual contract between officials of the Nazi Foreign Ministry with Arab leaders, including Husseini, extending after the war because they saw a cause they believed in,” Dr. Breitman said. “And after the war, you have real Nazi war criminals — Wilhelm Beisner, Franz Rademacher and Alois Brunner — who were quite influential in Arab countries.”

In October 1945, the report says, the British head of Palestine’s Criminal Investigation Division told the assistant American military attaché in Cairo that the mufti might be the only force able to 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.”

“We have more detailed scholarly accounts today of Husseini’s wartime activities, but Husseini’s C.I.A. file indicates that wartime Allied intelligence organizations gathered a healthy portion of this incriminating evidence,” the report says. “This evidence is significant in light of Husseini’s lenient postwar treatment.” He died in Beirut in 1974."
