In Osama bin Laden's latest rambling he states something that indicates he is either ignorant of history, or hopes that we areOn page 2 of the translated text, bin Laden states:
......the holocaust of the Jews was carried out by your bretheren in the middle of Europe, but had it been closer to our countries, most of the Jews would have been saved by taking refuge with us.....
History tells us though, that Muslims had a more active role in the extermination of the Jews than bin Laden lets on:
"....At the Nuremberg Trials, Eichmann's deputy Dieter Wisliceny (subsequently executed as a war criminal) testified: The Mufti (Mohammad Amin al-Husseini) was one of the initiators of the systematic extermination of European Jewry and had been a collaborator and adviser of Eichmann and Himmler in the execution of this plan......"
According to documentation from the Nuremberg and Eichmann trials, the Nazi Germany SS helped finance al-Husseini's efforts in the 1936-39 revolt in Palestine. Adolf Eichmann actually visited Palestine and met with al-Husseini at that time and subsequently maintained regular contact with him later in Berlin.....He (Mohammad Amin al-Husseini) then spent the rest of World War II as Hitler's special guest in Berlin"
Perhaps though, it's hard to get high speed internet connections huddled in the base of a cave. I for one however, think this is an intentional oversite by bin Laden......hoping that we in the west are too ignorant to research the facts.
Sorry Osama, it looks to me as if you were in bed with Nazi Germany & Hitler all along.....and as a matter a fact it is not a stretch at all to say that the war on Islamic terrorism is merely a continuation of the hostilities and atrocities started in World War II Nazi Germany.
One additional noteworthy fact: The Grand Mufti (Mohammad Amin al-Husseini) was the uncle to recently deceased PLO leader Yassir Arafat (bottom page of link). Thus his vision, teachings, and idealogy continue to inspire and lead the Muslim world.
