Husseini represents the prevalent pro-Nazi posture among the Arab/Muslim world before, during and even after the Holocaust. The Nazi-Arab connection
existed even when Adolf Hitler first seized power in Germany in 1933. News of the Nazi takeover was welcomed by the Arab masses with great enthusiasm,
as the first congratulatory telegrams Hitler received upon being appointed Chancellor came from the German Consul in Jerusalem, followed by those from
several Arab capitals. Soon afterwards, parties that imitated the National Socialists were founded in many Arab lands, like the
"Hisb-el-qaumi-el-suri" (PPS) or Social Nationalist Party in Syria. Its leader, Anton Sa'ada, styled himself the Führer of the Syrian nation, and
Hitler became known as "Abu Ali" (In Egypt his name was "Muhammed Haidar"). The banner of the PPS displayed the swastika on a black-white
background. Later, a Lebanese branch of the PPS – which still receives its orders from Damascus – was involved in the assassination of Lebanese
President Pierre Gemayel.
The most influential party that emulated the Nazis was "Young Egypt," which was founded in October 1933. They had storm troopers, torch processions,
and literal translations of Nazi slogans – like "One folk, One party, One leader." Nazi anti-Semitism was replicated, with calls to boycott Jewish
businesses and physical attacks on Jews. Britain had a bitter experience with this pro-German mood in Egypt, when the official Egyptian government
failed to declare war on the Wehrmacht as German troops were about to conquer Alexandria.
After the war, a member of Young Egypt named Gamal Abdul Nasser was among the officers who led the July 1952 revolution in Egypt. Their first act –
following in Hitler's footsteps – was to outlaw all other parties. Nasser's Egypt became a safe haven for Nazi war criminals, among them the SS
General in charge of the murder of Ukrainian Jewry; he became Nasser's bodyguard and close comrade. Alois Brunner, another senior Nazi war criminal,
found shelter in Damascus, where he served for many years as senior adviser to the Syrian general staff and still resides today.
Just been watching a program on the history channel about the SS. It talked about the different divisions in the SS and even spoke about the muslim
division in the SS. So i decided that i would look into the connection between muslims and nazism.
There is a thread on ATS about Bin Laden being a nazi and even funding Neo Nazi groups throughout Europe. I welcome all ATS members to share
information about this topic and hopefully we can all share some light on this
(Note: Not all muslims support Nazism, i know of muslims who are against it. This thread hasn't been created so we can take a dig at muslims or
Islam. Please try and keep personal feelings out of this thread, the last thing i want is another thread bashing muslims,islam,etc)
