Icon of Evil
- Hitler's Mufti and the Rise of Radical Islam
- By: David G. Dalin, John F. Rothmann

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.
Powerful description of Hitler's Evil Mufti

Al-Husseini the father if Islamo Nazi terrorism
I had heard about the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, but I had not been able to acquire much information on his activities or how he escaped the Nuremberg Trials for crimes against humanity. This book in detail describes the career of Haj Muhammed Amin al-Husseini and how he escaped prosecution after WWII. Seems that appeasement was still alive and well after WWII where Churchill's advice was yet again ignored. He is truly the founder of modern day terrorism.
