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. Download and start listening now!

    " Excellent story that ties today's Islamic Radicals back to some of the Arab personalities of WW2 and their support for Hitler's "final solution" to the "Jewish Problem".. Great read about a part of history many don't know about. "

    " I was not aware of the dark connection between radical muslims and the Nazi regime. This connection helps to explain the continued antisemitism to the present day. "
