Icon of Evil: Hitler's Mufti and the Rise of Radical Islamby David G. Dalin
Synopses & Reviews
In the 1920s, Hajj Amin-al-Husseini was the political and spiritual leader of the Palestinian Arabs. A vicious anti-Semite, he led numerous pogroms against Jewish settlers. During World War II, al-Husseini allied himself and his people with Hitler; he lived in Germany, met with Hitler, encouraged "the final solution," and became close friends with Himmler and other Nazis. After the war, al-Husseini escaped (he would certainly have been convicted at Nuremberg for war crimes) and fled to Egypt. His standing only rose, and in Egypt he was instrumental in fomenting Nazi-style anti-Semitic propaganda there. He also became the mentor to a new generation of radical "Islamo-fascist" Arab leaders. Foremost among them: Yasser Arafat.
The definitive account of the little-known 1920s Palestinian leader who allied himself with Hitler and forms the hidden link between the fascism of the twentieth century and the new fascism of the twenty-first.
