Amin al-Husseini Islamic Antisemitism
Amin al-Husseini played a pivotal role in the spread of modern anti-Semitism in the Arab and Islamic anti-Semites of the cooperation with the Nazis. He was a staunch advocate of the extermination of European Jews in the German Reich. He made contacts with the Nazis, won the support of German leadership circles and lived in Berlin since 1941. Al-Husseini was a member of the SS and business propaganda for Germany in Arabic. In the late phase of the Second World War, al-Husseini helped in the Balkans in the mobilization of Muslims for the Waffen-SS. The French Interior Minister said in May 1945, looking back, al-Husseini was the “figurehead German espionage in all Muslim countries”. "The Day of Judgment will come, when the Muslims will crush the Jews completely. And when every tree behind which a Jew hides will say There is a Jew behind me, Kill him! Amin al-Husayni was vehemently anti-Zionist and supported the Holocaust and also visited Sarajevo in 1943 to show his support for the Nazi SS Handzar Division, giving a speech at the Beg mosque in Sarajevo to call for recruits to implement the Holocaust. Once established, it was shown that nearly 4% of the Bosnian Muslim population had joined the Nazi SS or police units, and that is one of the higher population percentages any where. The Nazi SS Handzar division was a culmination of support for such a project by Heinrich Himmler, who took a personal interest in it, and it followed the 1941 destruction of the (Spanish) Sephardic Il Kal Grande synagogue, the largest such building in the Balkans, by Germans accompanied in the destruction and desecration by Bosnian Muslims in Sarajevo in April 1941 and they were later to set up a concentration camp just one month later. The European Jewish Congress says this: "On the eve of the Shoah, the Jewish population numbered some 14,000. In 1941 Bosnia was incorporated into the Croat state. When the Germans entered Sarajevo, together with a local Bosnian Muslim mob, they destroyed the Sephardi synagogue. Bosnian Jewry was decimated by a combination of German, Ustashe (Croat Fascist), and Bosnian Muslim forces. The Mufti of Jerusalem (Haj Amin-al Husseini) was active in enlisting recruits to a Bosnian Muslim S.S. unit and in encouraging local authorities to organize the deportation and extermination of Bosnian Jewry. The Grand Mufti, also a financial contributor to the Nazi SS Handzar Division said in a radio broadcast on 20 September 1944: "No one ever thought that 140,000 Americans would become tools in Jewish hands.How would the Americans dare to Judaize Palestine? The wicked American intentions towards the Arabs are now clear, and there remain no doubts that they are endeavoring to establish a Jewish empire in the Arab world." In their operations, the Nazi SS Handzar and Nazi SS Kama Divisions would leave no living when they cam to villages to kill the population. Both Handzar and Kama were involved in ethnic cleansing of Jews in north and east Bosnia. Witnesses in Brcko and Bjeljina saw the slaughter of anyone not wearing a fez, and the same pattern of slaughter against Jews was repeated by them in Rogatica, Vlasenica, Srebrenica, and Visegrad. Green Cadre, led by Topcic, assisted the Bosnian Muslim SS Divisions in their killings of Bosnian Jews. March 1944 saw Nazi SS Handzar Division murder every Jew man, woman and child in the town of Bela Crkva. Multiply that up by everywhere they went to fulfill the wishes of the Grand Mufti.
