There were 2 books on islam published in India in the 1930s that are of interest.
Ishtiaq Husain Quershi, 1930, The Religion of Peace
Abdul Karim Maulavi, Islam : a universal religion of peace & progress, 1938
In both cases the authors are shills who misrepresent islam, protesting that those non-muslims who claim islam is a religion of violence have simply quoted selectively from the Koran. Of course, having condemned that as a strategy, the muslim shills then proceed to quote selectively from the koran, never once mentioning Chapter 9 (the verse of the sword)! What this shows is that shills for islam have had 100 years on us in developing strategies to convince the westerner (particularly the British) that islam (despite 1300 years of historical evidence) is "not a religion of war".
For those who want to know more about Hitler and the Mufti, I can recommend this book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Icon-Evil-Hitlers-Mufti-Radical/dp/1412810779 I know the first time I saw the photo of the Mufti sipping tea with Hitler, I assumed it had to have been photoshopped.
Following the end of WW2, Britain wanted to extradite the Mufti from France, in order to prosecute him at Nuremberg. Despite him being on a list of war criminals the French (to their eternal shame) refused to comply with his extradition and permitted the Mufti to flee, and he fled to Egypt. Considering Bat Ye'or's claims in her book Eurabia, maybe the actions of the French were to be expected (their empire was fundamentally an islamic empire).
Another interesting books is one written by an arabic muslim supporter of The Muslim Brotherhood, following what was thought to be the total destruction of the Brotherhood in Egypt in the late 1940s.
Ishaq Musa Husaini, The Moslem Brethren, Beirut, 1956
Husaini (thinking the Brotherhood has been destroyed, and he is therefore giving nothing away), admits that The Muslim Brotherhood was specifically modelled on the Nazi Party. Other books on the Brotherhood comment on how large cohorts from it went off to Palestine to kill jews before and during WW2.
I've heard that Husaini's historical record on The Brotherhood is being re-printed, now that the Nazi-inspired Brotherhood is in control of Egypt. It is significant that during the trial of Adolf Eichmann, Hannah Arendt noted that Egyptian state radio had broadcast that not enough jews had been killed in the Holocaust.
Would that the western world (and muslims in particular) knew about the close ties between Arabs and the Nazis. Here's a story that is to be found today on the front page of the "moderate" MPAC UK website, depicting the Israeli PM as Hitler. http://www.mpacuk.org/story/270212/netanyahus-psychotic-illness.html Search the forum of the MPAC UK website for the word "EDL" and it will return zero hits (despite there being plenty of discussions within their forum on that topic). I don't have much hope that a search for "islam is nazism" would return many hits. Muslims who know about the long-term alliances between Arabs and Nazis want to keep that information hidden. The list of Nazis who fled Europe after WW2 and took strategic positions in muslim countries is very extensive.

Esmeralda, indeed there was Islamic influence on Hitler's thinking, particularly from one Indian Muslim theologian, al-Mashriqi, whom Hitler met in the 1920s in Berlin and held discussions with.
Joe, as to the reason why Husseini was not prosecuted at Nuremberg, Britain was just as guilty as France or more so. I will look for references.

A very interesting piece. There are so many parallels between Nazism and Islam that it would be surprising if there had not been developments of this kind. Even so, when you see just how closely they work together it is especially chilling. People think that a killing machine on the scale of Nazism is in the past. It isn't. I have been reading Bat Y'eor's new book Europe, Globalisation and the Coming Universal Caliphate. She alludes to the links between Nazis and Arabs and the Nazi connections of some EU commissioners. The EU, via the Euro Arab Dialogue, has done enormous damage to Europe by opening the door wide to Muslim immigration and insisting policies being put in place which militate against integration of these immigrants. It seems that Interpol are not untainted by these Nazi connections either.
