May It Not Happen Again!
Jan Willem van der Hoeven
Saddam Hussein grew up in the shadow of a giant portrait that hung on the wall of his father's house, a portrait of a man his father adored above every other political leader. It was the face of Adolph Hitler! Writing in Inside Asia, John Gunther said: "The greatest contemporary hero in the Arab world is Hitler." Even Anwar Sadat, a man deemed by many in the West to be a moderate Arab leader, as a young man wrote the following words to the leader of the Third Reich:
"My dear Hitler, I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart. Even if you appear to have been defeated, in reality you are the victor. You succeeded in creating dissensions between Churchill, the old man, and his allies, the Sons of Satan. Germany will win because her existence is necessary to preserve the world balance. Germany will be reborn in spite of the Western and Eastern powers. There will be no peace unless Germany once again becomes what she was."
Anis Mansour, editor of the Egyptian magazine October and a Sadat confidant who accompanied the Egyptian leader to Jerusalem wrote: "The world is now aware of the fact that Hitler was right, and that the cremation ovens were the appropriate means of punishing [the Jews]."
Hitler's book, Mein Kampf, is still required reading in various Arab capitals and universities, and is widely distributed by others. And as Shmuel Katz writes in The Hollow Peace: "The Arab attitude is pointedly and incisively expressed in modern Arabic literature, which is chock-full of unbridled hatred of Israel, of Zionism and of the Jewish people. The idea of the destruction of Israel is expressed in hundreds of books published on the subject of the dispute itself, and anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist teaching has been incorporated in school text-books, even, improbably enough, in arithmetic books."
The only reason that the Arabs have not yet done to the Israeli Jews what Hitler did to their forefathers in Europe is that they have thus far lacked the military means and weapons of mass destruction which were at Hitler's disposal. Had there not been an Israeli Army to defend the remnant of European Jewry that immigrated to Israel, the Arabs would have gladly fulfilled Hitler's dream a long time ago by finishing off those Jews the Nazi megalomaniac had left alive.
This deeply entrenched hatred of the Jews and love for Hitler and the Nazis surfaced during the time of one of the first Palestinian leaders, the Grand Mufti Haj Amin el Husseini, during the 1930s. As Hitler's guest in Germany, the Mufti said on Berlin radio: "Kill the Jews--kill them with your hands, kill them with your teeth--this is well pleasing to Allah!"
No, contrary to popular belief, the crux of the Middle East problem has never been the Palestinian Arab problem. It has been and still is the Palestinian Jewish problem. It was this problem that had to be solved by the Arabs. They have used the Palestinian Arabs as their front and excuse to achieve their Hitler-like goal: the extinction of a sovereign Jewish nation in their Muslim midst. .."""
