The Muslim Brotherhood was founded by a true Islamist radical named Hassan al-Banna in the 1920s. His hatred for the West grew during the British colonial period in Egypt. But he wasn’t just a rabid anti-colonialist. His dream was that of a new worldwide Caliphate, where Islam would dominate the planet. Sound familiar?
He became a groupie of sorts of Adolf Hitler and wrote to him quite often. He considered Hitler to be a kindred spirit, as they hated Jews, loved authoritarianism, and were addicted to violence to accomplish their goals.
With Hitler’s backing, a Muslim Nazi army was formed in Egypt. The Arab Nazis pledged their allegiance to Hitler, vowed to help Gen. Erwin Rommel in North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, and ensure that no British or American soldier would be left alive in Egypt.
Al-Banna was assisted by The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, who hailed from mandatory Palestine, years before the formation of the Israeli state. The Mufti actually traveled to Germany during World War II to form an Arab Nazi SS division.
In 1943, the Mufti traveled several times to Bosnia, where, on orders of the SS, he recruited the notorious Hanjar Troopers, a special Waffen SS company which slaughtered 90% of Bosnia’s Jews. These Bosnian Muslim recruits rapidly found favor with SS chief Heinrich Himmler, who rewarded them by establishing a special mullah military school in Dresden. The Mufti also traveled to Auschwitz, to witness the extermination first hand, where he was said to have admonished the gas chamber men for not working quickly enough.
After the war, Egypt, being that Abdel Nasser was an ally, welcomed Nazis into his country to continue the persecution of Jews. It wasn’t until later that the Brotherhood was invited to set up shop in Saudi Arabia.
The Muslim Brotherhood had great success promoting both Nazi fascism and Islamic extremism in Saudi schools. And who was one of their prize students? That’s right — little Osama — Osama bin Laden.
In 1979, the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, so off went the Saudi Nazis to fight. And thus began the formation of Maktab al Khidimat il Mujahideen (MAK). Some claim that it was actually our CIA who not only recruited the Arab Nazis to fight the Soviets, but came up with their name, being that “Arab Nazis” wouldn’t play very well.
After the MAK outlasted the Russians, any American assistance dried up and bin Laden and his band of thugs were left in Afghanistan where he formed Al Qaeda with the help of the Saudis, who sent him payments for not returning to Saudi Arabia.
So it was Egypt, not Saudi Arabia that was the birthplace of modern-day terrorism and it is the Muslim Brotherhood, with the aid of Hitler and the Nazis, who spawned every Islamic terrorist group in the world today.
And yet the Brotherhood was thought by the Bush White House to be a more reasonable group of Arabs that America could work with, and Obama has welcomed them into the White House.
