Dr. Serge Trifkovic documents the similarities between Al Husseini's brand of radical Islam and Nazism in his book The Sword of the Prophet. He noted parallels in both ideologies: anti-Semitism, quest for world dominance, demand for the total subordination of the free will of the individual, belief in the abolishment of the nation-state in favor of a "higher" community (in Islam the umma or community of all believers; in Nazism, the herrenvolk or master race), and belief in undemocratic governance by a "divine" leader (an Islamic caliph, or Nazi führer).
Media influences exerted in Europe by Sebottendorff's masonic groups, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, and others sworn to secrecy in the 1920s, serve as an indication that parts of Asia Minor and the Middle East may have been the prototype 'Aryan' headquarters of anti-Semitism before Hitler publicly appeared in Germany. Anatolia's well-known policy of disregarding human rights and her embarrassing support from Ottoman Freemasons contributed to the Third Reich's blueprint for genocide and its reckless resistance to Western Judeo-Christian principles.

Hitler grew up with an abiding and inherited hatred for Jews.

It is difficult today, if not impossible, to say when the word, "Jew," first occasioned special thoughts in me. In my father's house, I cannot recall ever having heard the word, at least while he lived.
In school, too, I found no cause which would have led me to change this received image. In high school I did learn to know a Jewish boy, whom we all treated cautiously, only because various experiences had taught us to doubt his reliability. But we didn't care all that much one way or the other [about Jews].
I did not yet so much as suspect the existence of a systematic opposition to Jews.
Then I came to Vienna.

Hitler himself says it wasn't until he came to Vienna that he started having strong opinions towards Jews.
Without ARAFAT's thirst for power and historico-political need for attention*, millions of RESPECTABLE ARAB INDIVIDUALS would NOT live the NIGHTMARE they've been living for decades.
Two of Hitler's closest friends in Mannerheim were Jewish -- a one-eyed locksmith named Robinson who often helped him and a part-time Hungarian art dealer, Josef Neumann, who took pity on Adolf's tattered attire and gave him a long frock coat. pg. 38
Hanisch never heard his friend [Hitler] rail at the Jews during these tempestuous debates or in private, and he remained convinced that Hitler (most of whose favorite actors and singers were Jewish) was by no means anti-Semitic. On the contrary, Adolf would express gratitude for the Jewish charities of which he had been a beneficiary, along with admiration for Jewish resistance to persecutions, and once denid that Jewish capitalists were usuers. pg. 37
