This is a look into the murky history of Islamic fascism. It's a bit long, but to tell the story it needs to be. If you can handle the truth...here it is.

The following was the opening of a recent History Channel special on the topic:

Few people realize that the Baath party was actually formed upon
the principles and organizational structure of the Nazi party.
Iraq, because of its oil and hatred of Jews, was an important battleground
between the Axis and Allied powers in World War II. Nazi propaganda
was broadcast throughout Baghdad, and Iraqis often went on rampages
against Jews throughout the war. One of the most ardent Nazi supporters
during WWII was named Khairallah Talfah. Talfah was Saddam's uncle.
After the war, many of the key Iraqi Nazi supporters, all of whom evaded
prosecution, wound up involved in Saddam's rise to power. This special
examines the key individuals of the Iraqi-Nazi connection, the little-known battle for Iraq in WWII, and the strange link
to Saddam Hussein.

-Amin al-Husayni is born in Jerusalem in 1895.

-In 1919, al-Husayni attends the Pan-Syrian Congress where he supported Emir Faisal for King of Syria and founds the Arab secret society El-Nadi al-Arabi. al-Husayni turns from a Pan-Arabism to a specifically Palestinian ideology centered on Jerusalem and expelling the Jews and foreigners from Palestine.

-In April 1920 al-Husayni denounced the Balfour Declaration as a betrayal of the Arabs. In the ensuing riots 5 Jews and 4 Arabs are killed. Al-Husayni is sentenced to ten years imprisonment in absentia and flees to Damascus.

-In 1921, the military administration of Palestine is replaced by a civilian one, under the League of Nations. Following the death of his brother Kamil the British High Commissioner Herbert Samuel decides to pardon al-Husayni.

-In 1922, al-Husayni is elected President of the Supreme Muslim Council.

-In 1933 al-Husayni sent a telegram to the German Consul-General in the British Mandate of Palestine saying he looked forward to spreading their ideology in the Middle East

-April 1936, an Arab rebellion had broken out in Palestine led by the Mufti.

-In July 1937, British police were sent to arrest al-Husayni, but he was tipped off and escaped to Lebanon, where he reconstituted the committee under his domination. He remained in Lebanon for two years, but his deteriorating relationship with the French and Syrian authories lead him to Iraq in October 1939.

-In 1938 Al-Husayni's offer was accepted. From August 1938, Husseini receives financial and military assistance and supplies from Nazi Germany and fascist Italy. From Berlin, al-Husayni would play a significant role in inter-Arab politics.

-In April 1941 pro-Nazi Iraqi army officers forced the Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Said Pasha, to resign. In May he declared jihad against Britain. In a few months British troops occupied the country and the Mufti went to Germany. Husayni aided the Axis cause in the Middle East by issuing a fatwa for a holy war against Britain in May 1941. The Mufti's widely heralded proclamation against Britain was declared in Iraq, where he was instrumental in "the pro-Nazi" Iraqi revolt of 1941.

-Upon al-Husayni's arrival in Europe, he met the German Foreign Minister, Joachim von Ribbentrop on November 20, 1941 and was officially received by Adolf Hitler on November 28, 1941 in Berlin. Hitler made the following declaration:

1. He would carry on the fight until the last traces of the Jewish-Communist European hegemony had been obliterated.

2. In the course of this fight, the German army would - at a time that could not yet be specified, but in any case in the clearly foreseeable future - gain the southern exit of Caucasus.

3. Thereafter, Germany's only remaining objective in the region would be limited to the Vernichtung des...Judentums. ['destruction of the Jewish element', sometimes taken to be a euphemism for 'annihilation of the Jews']

-The Mufti established close contacts with Bosnian and Albanian Muslim leaders and spent the remainder of the war conducting radio propaganda on behalf of Nazi Germany, espionage and the fifth column activities in Muslim regions of Europe and the Middle East, assisting with the formation of Muslim Waffen SS units in the Balkans, the formation of schools and training centers for Muslim imams and mullahs who would accompany the Muslim SS and Wehrmacht units.

-Beginning in 1943, al-Husayni was involved in the organization and recruitment of Bosnian Muslims into several divisions of the Waffen SS and other units.

-November 2, 1943 Himmler's telegram to Mufti: "In the recognition of this enemy (the world Jewry) and of the common struggle against it lies the firm foundation of the natural alliance that exists between the National Socialist Greater Germany and the freedom-loving Muslims of the whole world."

-Testimony presented at the Nuremberg trials accused the Mufti of not only having knowledge about the holocaust but of also actively encouraging the initiation of extermination programs against European Jews. "The Mufti 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

-Among the sabotage al-Husayni organized was an attempted chemical warfare assault on the second largest and predominantly Jewish city in Palestine, Tel Aviv. Five parachutists were sent with a toxin to dump into the water system. The police caught the infiltrators in a cave near Jericho, and according to Jericho district police commander Fayiz Bey Idrissi, "The laboratory report stated that each container held enough poison to kill 25,000 people, and there were at least ten containers."

-After the war, al-Husayni was given asylum in Egypt. Zionist groups petitioned the British to have him indicted as a war criminal.

-From Egypt al-Husayni was among the sponsors of the 1948 war against the new State of Israel.

-The Grand Mufti's direct successor was Yasser Arafat.

-During the war one of Hitler's, and the Grand Mufti's, most ardent supporters was Khairallah Talfah.

-During the Mufti's time in exile in Egypt Khairallah Talfah was a one on one student of the Grand Mufti’s political and ideological beliefs.

-Khairallah Talfah was the uncle of Saddam Hussein and one of the founders of the Iraqi Ba’athist movement.

-Saddam Hussein's political and ideological mentor was Khairallah Talfah. Saddam's party was the Ba'ath party.
