Palestinians Wave Nazi Flag Over Mosque Near Hebron

by | May 23, 2013 | Israel, Standing With Israel

Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria were shocked to see a Nazi flag waving over a mosque in the Palestinian village of Beit Omar near Hebron on Monday. The flag was visible to thousands of Israeli citizens who pass by this mosque en route from Hebron to work.

Uri Arnon, who saw the flag, told Tazpit News Agency, “I felt we were going back 75 years, losing our hold on the land. The Arabs no longer feel the need to hide their murderous tendencies, announcing out loud that they wish to destroy us.”

Aryeh Savir of the Tazpit News Agency reported, “The IDF’s Coordination Office of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) latest response is that they are waiting for members of the Palestinian electricity company to come in and remove it because it is on power lines.”

Regardless of whether the flag stays up or not, the fact that a Nazi flag was waved over a Palestinian mosque is an uncanny reminder of how certain Palestinian nationalists have demonstrated overt support for Nazism, thus demonstrating once again that they have no intention of peacefully coexisting with Israel.

In fact, according to the Walid Shoebat Foundation, which is run by a Palestinian named Walid Shoebat, who used to be a PLO terrorist yet has in recent years become an advocate for Israel, claims that such Palestinian actions should not surprise any of us. He says that the fact that a Nazi flag would be waved over a Palestinian mosque “should be common knowledge but is continuously ignored—Islamic fundamentalists and Nazis are like-minded. That a Nazi flag would be flying over a Palestinian village near a mosque should actually be less shocking than the fact that so many are shocked by it.”

Grand Mufti of Palestine, and Hitler

In the 1930s, Palestinian leader Grand Mufti Haj Amin Al Husseini, who was directly involved in the 1929 riots that destroyed the ancient Jewish community of Hebron, developed a very close alliance with Nazi Germany. The Grand Mufti and his followers were so attached to Hitler that they even adopted Nazi salutes, waved pictures of Hitler at rallies and placed swastikas on their written materials, while the Nazis reciprocated by giving scholarships to Arab students, hiring Arabs in German firms and inviting Arab leaders to Nazi rallies at a time when Jews who lived within Germany their entire lives were denied such opportunities.

Indeed, the Mufti was on the Nazis’ payroll as an agent and propagandist, and the Nazis were actively involved in forming links with Arabic media outlets, whose anti-Jewish legacy that began around the time of the Holocaust endures to the present day. The Grand Mufti was behind the Great Arab Revolt of 1936-1939 and the countless Arab terror operations targeting the Jews of Israel; he was involved with the Farhud massacre of members of the Baghdad Jewish community in 1941; he actively urged European governments to transport Jews to death camps and not let Jews leave Europe; and he was involved in training pro-Nazi Bosnian forces, who committed countless atrocities. He also smuggled Nazi loot into Arab countries.

Present Ties

According to Palestinian Media Watch, “The name Hitler does not carry the stigma in PA society that it does in the West. Both the Hamas weekly and the Fatah PA dailies have written in favorable tones about Hitler. To some Palestinians, the man and his name are worthy of admiration. While it may be surprising to Western observers to see official Palestinian sources presenting Hitler in a heroic light, it is important to note that the revulsion of Hitler that is taken for granted in the West is not true of Palestinian society. There are even Palestinians whose first name is Hitler.”

For example, one article in Al Hayat Al Jadida written not too long ago by Hassan Ouda Abu Zaher stated, “Had Hitler won, Nazism would be an honor that people would be competing to belong to, and not a disgrace punishable by law. Churchill and Roosevelt were alcoholics, and in their youth were questioned more than once about brawls they started in bars, while Hitler hated alcohol and was not addicted to it. He used to go to sleep early and wake up early, and was very organized. These facts have been turned upside down as well, and Satan has been dressed with angels’ wings.”

Indeed, waving a Nazi flag over a Palestinian mosque is merely the latest manifestation of the Palestinian national movement’s overt support for Nazi ideology.
