And we’re surprised? Nope.
The infamous WWII Arab war criminal, Hajj Amin al-Husseini is a familiar subject here at the Tundra Tabloids, anyone who reads these pages regularly knows just who and what the late Mufti of J’lem is all about. Mahmoud Abbas’ praising of this practitioner of the Nazis’ genocide of the Jews during the Second World War, (as well as inciting Arabs against Jews in Mandate Palestine before WW II) would be akin to a Western leader heaping praise upon, Martin Borman, who was sentenced to death in absentia by the Nuremburg War Crimes Tribunal, (with the difference being that Borman didn’t personally raise two SS divisions with the intent of exterminating Jews like Hajj al-Husseini).

NOTE: The Elder of Ziyon has been making some “to-the-point” posters about Abbas, here’s the latest, with a portion of his post below it.
In the same speech that Mahmoud Abbas waxed nostalgically over the PLO in 1964 today, he added, “We must also recall the outstanding [early] leadership of the Palestinian people, the Grand Mufti of Palestine-Haj Mohammed Amin al-Husseini, who sponsored the struggle from the beginning, and sponsored the struggle and displacement for the cause and died away from his home.”
The Mufti was a rabid Jew-hater who was the driving force behind not only the 1929 massacres in Jerusalem and Hebron but also the 1936-39 riots that resulted in the deaths of hundreds. He moved to Germany during World War II, hoping that Hitler would win and allow to him murder every Jewish man, woman and child in Palestine, and proposing plans to do exactly that.
This is Mahmoud Abbas’ hero.
For some reason, that part of his speech wasn’t translated in the English version of the Ma’an article.
If any Western politician would publicly praise a Nazi sympathizer who supported genocide, their careers would be over. When the so-called “moderate” PA leaders do exactly that, no one says a word.
