Scholars Call Bullshit on Netanyahu's Speech Blaming Palestinian for the Holocaust

Bibi is laying groundwork ... for what?

Scholars Call Bullshit on Netanyahu's Speech Blaming Palestinian for the Holocaust


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu caused an uproar on Tuesday when he told the World Zionist Congress that a Palestinian leader from the mid-20th century bore responsibility for the Nazi Holocaust.

Netanyahu said the former grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, planted the idea to wipe out European Jews when he met Hitler in 1941 in Berlin.

"Hitler didn't want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jews," he said. '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. 'Burn them!'"

This version of events doesn't sit well with the world's leading scholars of the Holocaust, Netanyahu's political rivals, the mufti's own biographer, or for that matter the German government — which went out of it's way on Wednesday to claim sole responsibility for the extermination of Jews.

"We know that responsibility for this crime against humanity is German and very much our own," a spokesperson for Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel said. "This is taught in German schools for good reason; it must never be forgotten."

Netanyahu's speech puts Palestinians at the center of the Holocaust – a version of events that's completely unfamiliar to the world's leading historians of Nazi Germany.

Netanyahu is reaching back to the first world war to make his inane argument. I was somewhat shocked to hear what he said today.

Bibi was a successful battlefield commander in 73 who obviously did not study history. I think but am not sure the Bibi means either baby or father in Arabic.

And you have to wonder if that isn't planned. I mean, is he as heavily invested in stocks and dividends for military weapons as Bush was?

This is another example of this clown being a loose cannon. How can the world expect Netanyahu to deal fairly with the Paelestinians when this nutter believes that the Palestinians talked Hitler into burning all the Jews rather than deport them ? If the Israeli people had any sense, they would call on him to resign.

The first step to understanding this is to learn what holocaust is.

Holocaust is a word, like "racist", used to browbeat and manipulate resistors into submission.
