The Muslim Brotherhood – Nazi Connection
Tunisia is in a state of political shambles. Egypt doesn't know if the army is siding with the protestors against the Cairo police or if it's staying loyal to President Mubarak. Thousands are protesting in Jordan. There's talk of riots to soon break out in Yemen.
And what’s the common thread? Something that the average American is quickly becoming familiar with — The Muslim Brotherhood.
Seen above is a certain Mohammad Amin al-Husayni, Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and close personal friend to Adolf Hitler, inspecting the all-moslem Nazi Handzar SS Division, which he was instrumental in founding.
Founding of the Muslim Brotherhood
In the 1920s, an Egyptian school teacher, Hassan al-Banna, gathered discontent Muslims to found the Muslim Brotherhood.
According to John Loftus, a former prosecutor with the US Justice Department, “Al-Banna formed this nationalist group called the Muslim Brotherhood. Al-Banna was a devout admirer of Adolf Hitler and wrote to him frequently.”
Loftus adds that Al-Banna was so persistent in his “admiration of the new Nazi Party that in the 1930s Al-Banna and the Muslim Brotherhood became a secret arm of Nazi Intelligence. With the goal of the Third Reich to develop the Muslim Brotherhood as an army inside Egypt.”
While initial growth of the Muslim Brotherhood was moderate, the organization’s membership rolls – coinciding with rising anti-Semitism in Europe — by August 1938 had swelled to more than two hundred thousand members. By the end of World War II the Muslim Brotherhood had around half a million members.
Al-Banna idealized death also preached a love of death.
“To a nation that perfects the industry of death and which knows how to die nobly, God gives proud life in this world and eternal grace in the life to come” and “We are not afraid of death, we desire it… Let us die in redemption for Muslims,” Al-Banna once wrote.
Does any of that sound familiar present day? Does “We love death more than you love life” ring a bell?
Direct contact with the Nazis
Another great admirer of Hitler was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Mohammad Amin al-Husayni, “went to Germany during the war and helped recruit an international SS division of Arab Nazis. They based it in Croatia and called it the Handzar Muslim Division, but it was to become the core of Hitler’s new army of Arab fascists that would conquer the Arabian Peninsula and, from there, on to Africa–grand dreams.”
