Rabbi Shmuley Boteach challenges the “beautiful people” in Hollywood (Emma Thompson, Anthony Bordain, Roger Waters) on their hatred of Israel.
Good for him. They deserve to have their faces rubbed in their messes.
We here at BTL.com approach the subject from the other side:
In an interview with Russia Today TV on December 7, Farouq Qaddoumi, the former political bureau head of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said that Arabs were “enthusiastic supporters” of the Nazis during World War II.
The remarks were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“I don’t think it would be wrong to say that we were enthusiastic supporters of Germany,” Qaddoumi said in the interview, when asked by the interviewer, “Were you sympathetic with Nazi Germany in WWII?”
The interviewer, seeking to clarify, then said, “You supported Hitler and his people.” Qaddoumi replied, “Germany, yes. This was common among the Palestinians, especially since our enemy was Zionism, and we saw that Zionism was hostile to Germany, and vice versa.”
Recently, MEMRI posted clips from two separate rallies at Al-Quds University, in which Islamic Jihad members, cheered on by other students, take part in a live performance at which they brandish imitation assault rifles and black Islamist flags, and give Nazi salutes.
In October, reacting to ongoing incidents of incitement and anti-Semitism by the Palestinian Authority, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu noted the deep link between the Palestinian national movement and Germany’s Nazi regime.
Netanyahu noted that Haj Amin Al-Husseini, the founder of “Palestinian nationalism”, was an admirer and supporter of Adolf Hitler, had met the Nazi Fuhrer on numerous occasions and was actively involved in encouraging Hitler and his henchmen in their project of annihilating the Jewish people.
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has consistently said that any future Palestinian state would be free of Israelis and Jews, much like the Nazis wanted Germany to be “Judenrein” (free of Jews).
These are your Arab occupiers of Judea and Samaria, you leftist Jew-haters.
Though Hitler wasn’t all bad, you know:
In an interview on the Lebanese Murr TV in July 2012, Lebanese singer Najwa Karam was asked whose attributes she would pick in order to create her ideal man. Without hesitation, she responded: “I would choose Hitler for his rhetoric, his ability of persuasion.”
Following are excerpts from the interview, posted on the Internet on July 12, 2012:
Interviewer: If you could mix together several people to form the ideal man in your view, whom would you choose?
Najwa Karam: Several people – not just one?
Interviewer: Yes, let’s say brains from one person and good nature from another.
Najwa Karam: I would choose Hitler for his rhetoric, his ability of persuasion. I would choose Richard Gere for his charm, Al Pacino for being street-wise, Hugo or Shakespeare for their romanticism…
Interviewer: Romeo and Juliet.
Najwa Karam: I’d like to combine them all together. And I’d choose Onassis for his money.
Interviewer: Nice. What are you going to sing for us?
Najwa Karam: Hold on a sec, there’s Einstein. We forgot that. For his brains.
That’s a lot of men. But then Najwa Karam is a lot of woman.
But might I suggest to the lovely Ms. Karam that if she’s looking for a model of rhetorical persuasion, she might site a more contemporary example:
