Bibi Netanyahu, right-wing prime minister of Israel, has cruelly insulted the survivors of Adolf Hitler’s Holocaust in Israel and elsewhere.
Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has said a Palestinian Muslim leader was behind the Holocaust. According to him, the Palestinian Haj Amin al-Husseini persuaded Hitler to murder Jews rather than banish them.
The accusation was part of a speech by the Prime Minister at the Zionist Congress in Jerusalem. …
“Hitler before the meeting only wanted to ban the Jews. Al-Husseini then went to Hitler and said: “If you banish them, then they will all come to Palestine.”
According to Netanyahu, Hitler then asked the Palestinian what he should do with the Jews. “Burn them,” al-Husseini supposedly said.
Saying this has caused the Israeli Prime Minister to get a lot of criticism. His accusation is said to help Holocaust deniers, because it did not highlight the role of Hitler in the Holocaust enough.
Alas, every Holocaust denier will now be quoting Netanyahu from here to eternity.

The opposition leader in the Israeli parliament dissociates himself from what his prime minister said. “It’s a sad day in our history when the leader of the Israeli government hates his neighbour so much that he is prepared to absolve one of the largest ever criminals, Adolf Hitler, of the murder of six million Jews.”
The Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon also said that the Prime Minister has got it wrong. “It certainly was not Husseini who invented the idea to kill the Jews en masse. It was the evil wrought Hitler himself.”
It is unclear on what sources Netanyahu based his accusation.
It seems pretty clear to me. Netanyanahu bases this on similar sources to the ones which told Tony Blair to waste British taxpayers’ money on a ‘paranormal’ search for these unfindable ‘weapons of mass destruction’ in Iraq. Similar sources to the ones saying that shark cartilage, rhino horn or tiger parts can cure sick humans.
After Moshe Feiglin, a bigwig in Netanyahu’s Likud party, exposed himself as an historical ignoramus by claiming Hitler was not really such a bad guy … now the party leader himself sinks to a new low.
From the Jerusalem Post in Israel today:
BERLIN – The German government said on Wednesday that responsibility for the Holocaust lay with the Germans, after Israel’s prime minister sparked controversy before a visit to Berlin by saying a Muslim elder had convinced Adolf Hitler to exterminate Jews.
“All Germans know the history of the murderous race mania of the Nazis that led to the break with civilization that was the Holocaust,” Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert said when asked about Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks.
“This is taught in German schools for good reason, it must never be forgotten. And I see no reason to change our view of history in any way. We know that responsibility for this crime against humanity is German and very much our own.”
Netanyahu’s Shocking ‘Blame the Mufti, Not Hitler’ Remark Breaks Internet. The prime minister’s controversial Holocaust comments became one of those cases where it was challenging to come up with humor more absurd than the situation itself: here.
Yad Vashem’s Chief Historian on Hitler and the Mufti: Netanyahu Had It All Wrong. There is no evidence that Haj Amin al-Husseini proposed the ‘final solution’ to Hitler, according to Yad Vashem chief historian Dina Porat: here.
It takes a peculiar quality in a politician who claims to speak for all Jews to jump on the “Hitler didn’t order the Holocaust” bandwagon: here.

Just how bad are Netanyahu’s claims about the Holocaust? If he repeated them in Germany he could be arrested. There, anyone who ‘denies or downplays’ the role of Nazism in the Holocaust can face a prison term of up to five years: here.
