Farouk Qaddumi, former head of the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s Political Bureau, said a shared hatred of Zionism bound the PLO leadership to Nazism, in an interview with Russia Today TV earlier this month. His comments were translated and re-broadcast by The Middle East Media Research Institute, MEMRI.

When asked if the PLO was sympathetic with Nazi Germany in World War II, Qaddumi responded that members of the PLO “were enthusiastic supporters of Germany.”

To clarify, the interviewer asked him, “You supported Hitler and his people?”

“Germany, yes,” Qaddumi responded. “This was common among the Palestinians, especially since our enemy was Zionism, and we saw that Zionism was hostile to Germany, and vice versa.”

The PLO also allowed a Nazi radio broadcast to be aired, he said.

    Those pictures are from the last 10 years or so.

  • Watch this youtube video. It’s much better than the retouched pictures of the grand mufti sitting with socialist hitler.

  • It’s disturbing for anyone to support any form of human suffering. The Holocaust was one of the worst things that happened in the 20th Century. Concurrently the suffering that Palestinian people face through eviction, violence and poverty is also an injustice. I’m in no way saying that Jewish people should leave the area, it is a home for many. But I do think the Isreali government should try and improve relations with good will and peace. War is just going to drive more people into hatred and violence on both sides..It’s pretty obvious from most of these comments and the growing list of terrorists, bombings and dead civilians. I honestly don’t understand this hatred for a fellow human being based on archaic wars from 1000s of years ago that none of us were directly a part of.

    • Perry, How do you make peace with Arabs who dehumanize Jews as “sons of pigs and dogs”, who brainwash their children to aspire to die in the course of jihad?

      Israel has peace groups like “Gush Shalom”, Peace Now.

      What peace groups do Palestinians have?

      Which Arab/Palestinian peace group march against Hamass, Hezbullah, Al Qada?

  • Judy Silver-Shapiro

    The so-called ‘palestinians’ and a vast majority of the world’s 1.6 BILLION muslims are the epitome of today’s NAZIS who laud and pay off murderers of JEWISH innocents including women & children.

  • The Nazis absolutely supported Zionism and tried to get Europe’s Jews deported to the Mideast. The English prevented it. Today’s Germany still supports Zionism, but from a different viewpoint.

    • Why are you INVENTING things?
      The nazis – just as their fascist twins – were ideologically and practically VERY HOSTILE to Zionism, which they denounced since the beginning.
      They allowed German Jews to leave (169,000 did between 1933-1938) BUT without anything. Had they favored Zionism they would not have ROBBED them of everything.

  • Here we have it by their own words: They are Nazi evil! Look at the idiot face of this shit Qaddumi, I wish he could have ended up in a Nazi camp instead of the millions of innocent jews! Why are we still showing interest to discuss anything with these prolos? Isn’t it better to just ignore their existence? The allied forces didn’t and couldn’t distinguish among Nazi Germans and not Nazi Germans at the end of the war when they bombed Germany, and no one spoke up against that… But Israel even when it doesnt bomb these bastards is considered the aggressor

  • This article is extremely confused because there was no PLO during the Nazi period. The Palestinian National Liberation Movement (Fatah) was not created until 1959. The Palestine Liberation Organization, of which Fatah was a major component,was not founded until 1964. What Qaddumi meant was that most Arabs of what came to be known as Palestine (a designation that implied the Jewish Yishuv before 1948, but which “Palestinian” Arabs appropriated for themselves later on), hated the Jews from the beginning of the Yishuv and supported the Nazis in the 1930′s and during WWII. The leader of Arab “Palestine” was Muhammad Amin al-Husayni, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, a strong supporter of Nazi Germany, who led the Arab Revolt of 1936-1939, and fled the British controlled Mandate of Palestine and sought refuge in Nazi Germany. Most Arabs of Mandate Palestine were followers of the Grand Mufti and were Nazi sympathizers.

    • Mohammed Amin al-Husseini did not qualify as Mufti under Moslem law (he was too young and lacked sufficient knowledge of Islamic law). His title of Grand Mufti was bestowed on him by Sir Herbert Samuel.

      Hitler saw the Arabs as backward, inferior people. He was not inclined to speak to Husseini, or be in the same room with him. He only agreed to a 15-minute meeting with Husseini at the insistence of Heinrich Himmler (with whom Husseini became friends).

      Husseini told Himmler “not to send the Jews to Palestine,” but “to send them to the East, to Poland.” Thus, Husseini no longer could rationally claim to be the leader of Palestinian Nationalism, as he allied himself and his followers with the Nazi genocide of all Jews. He was subsequently tried, in abstentia, at Nuremberg and was found not guilty on all four counts of the indictment. As for his 30,000-man SS corps, “Frei Arabien,” no evidence exists that they were involved in atrocities against the Jews. Their main target was the destruction of the resistance in Yugoslavia and other Baltic countries in 1943-1944.

      • Elliot J. Stamler

        I am entirely unaware of Husseini ever being tried at Nuremberg for anything and I am an avocational student of the Third Reich. Cite your specific evidence, Mr. Hersh. The Nuremberg tribunals–all of them–had jurisdiction only over Germans; so far as I know the only person tried in absentia was Martin Bormann.

    • “Confused” is too mild of a word to describe another diatribe from an Arab who makes up history as he desires. It is time for Israel to get their PR “firm” into action and show the world what is really history and the truth.

  • The only news is that a Palestinian is finally admitting this in public. The association of Haj Amin Al-Husseini-the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem-with Htler is well known. They formed a Muslim SS division and conspired together to bring the Holocaust directly into Israel. And after the war, hundreds of n&zis fled to Arab countries to escape Neuremburg where they continued teaching Jew-hatred to a very willing local populace. That’s why so many Arab militaries goosestep and give the n&zi salute.

  • The Nazis emulated the Muslims who revere the sociopath MUHAMMAD who personally decapitated 900 unarmed Jews in 627.

    How Jewish Television Pioneer Milton Berle Inspired Modern Comedy Stars

    JNS.org – Today’s comedy superstars, especially those whose careers are driven by television, may very well owe their success to pioneering Jewish entertainer Milton Berle. Born Mendel Berlinger in Manhattan in 1908, Berle became America’s first small-screen star. Aptly nicknamed “Mr. Television,” he influenced and helped promote the work of hundreds of younger comics. “Milton Berle was deceptively successful and very Jewish,” says Lawrence Epstein, author of The Haunted Smile: The Story of Jewish Comedians in America, published the year [...]

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]
