Netanyahu with the bludgeon in the library

This is fascinating. Eminent Israeli World War II historian and occasional prime minister-for-life Benjamin Netanyahu has made a startling discovery as to the cause of the Holocaust. And he’s just now shared it with us, and with the rest of the world. Pull the Wite-Out from your desk, fetch your copy of “History of the 20th Century for Dummies” and get yourself ready.

…this attack and other attacks on the Jewish community in 1920, 1921, 1929, were instigated by a call of the Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini, who was later sought for war crimes in the Nuremberg trials because he had a central role in fomenting the final solution. He flew to Berlin. Hitler didn’t want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jews. And Haj Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said, “If you expel them, they’ll all come here.” “So what should I do with them?” he asked. He said, “Burn them.”

So. Rather than the Third Reich, it was the Palestinians who were – pardon me, a Palestinian – ultimately responsible for the murder of six million Jews. What a surprising turn. Well this fits in nicely obliquely in the fourth dimension not at all with what we already know.

The phrase “complete solution of the Jewish question” was first uttered by Nazi leader Hermann Goering who gave the task to SS General Reinhardt Heydrich on July 31st, 1941. The killing centers in Poland were organized under so-called Operation Reinhard, and work on these units began in October 1941, a month before the Mufti visited Jerusalem.

Apparently the Final Solution had already begun by the time Netanyahu claims Hitler was puzzling over the mass murder/mass exodus question. But then the mean ole’ Mufti swung by and talked him into accepting the plan (…already underway). Who knew? An untermensch could hold such sway with Adolf, really remarkable.
