Benjamin Netanyahu Defended Adolf Hitler And Blamed Palestinians For The Holocaust

Benjamin Netanyahu has gone out of his way to be the personification of everything that could possibly be wrong about Israel. His relentless pursuit of human rights violations against the Palestinians have created nothing short of an apartheid state. His hatred for Muslims in general has him seeing nuclear attacks from non-nuclear states in his sleep.


Some would say that Netanyahu is right to be wary of the mostly-Muslim nations surrounding his country. Islamic extremists have called for the complete destruction of Israel on more than one occasion. Over the years, Israel has dealt with heinous acts of terrorism.


That doesn’t excuse Netanyahu’s treatment of peaceful Palestinians, nor does it excuse his own extremism. In his latest attempt to demonize an entire religion, He actually came to what many are calling the defense of Adolf Hitler. In a speech to the World Zionist Congress, Netanyahu placed the blame for the Holocaust squarely on the shoulders of Palestine:



“Hitler didn’t want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jew. And Haj Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said, ‘If you expel them, they’ll all come here (to Palestine).’ According to Netanyahu, Hitler then asked: “What should I do with them?” and the mufti replied: “Burn them.”


The claim Netanyahu makes has been rejected by most scholars. There is no evidence that the Grand Mufti, appointed at the time by the Prime Minister of England, said any such thing. The fact that the Prime Minister of Israel could possibly have any kind of feelings of remorse for the raw deal Hitler supposedly got in history is absolutely disgusting.


Maybe next he can thank Hitler for killing six million people. Without the Holocaust, there probably would be no Israel.


Netanyahu’s remarks are beyond cruel to his own people; beyond disrespectful to the millions of descendants of Holocaust survivors and beyond reprehensible to the memories of millions killed by a monster. How desperate he must be to win the disfavor of Palestine.
