An early report on Mufti al Husseini's war crimes

A report in 1947, by noted journalist Drew Pearson, in his syndicated 'Washington Merry-Go-Round' column  provides some contrast with the mainstream media's failure to address Grand Mufti Haj Amin al Husseini's murderous record during this week's fuss over Benjamin Netanyahu's remarks.

St. Petersburg Times - Sep 15, 1947, “Arab Leader Worked with Hitler” by Drew Pearson – Washington Merry-Go-Round column. Copy syndicated at St. Joseph Gazette - Sep 15, 1947.

Article highlights:

- Grand Mufti Haj Amin al Husseini was behind the efforts to block the creation of a Jewish nation in Palestine in 1947.

- The United States' State Department censored the Mufti’s activities.

- Refers in depth to Dieter Wisliceny’s testimony at Nuremberg.

- Jewish escape of thousands of Jews blocked by the Mufti – as discovered in a telegram of July 25th 1944.

- June 5th 1943, Mufti blocked the movement of 4,000 Jewish children to Palestine.

- June 28th 1943, Mufti blocked the transport of 1,800 Jews to Romania.

- The Mufti planned with the Reich in its final days (March and April 1945) to continue war with the British and the Jews ("the common enemy").
