The First World War (1914-1918) started because the “Triple Entente” of Britain, France & Russia initiated a fight against the “Triple Alliance” of Germany, Austria-Hungary & Ottoman Empire (Turkey). With the objective of inciting an Arab rebellion against their Turkish rulers, the British promised the Arabs an independent state of their own if they helped them to topple and chop up the Ottoman Empire. Though the Arabs fought valiantly during The Arab Revolt of 1916-1918 , little did they know of the secret deal that had been previously hatched behind their backs by the Rothschild – British – French syndicate.
In January of 1916, the secret Sykes–Picot Agreement between the United Kingdom and France (with assent from the Russian Empire and the Kingdom of Italy) defined their coming spheres of influence and control that were to be established after their expected victory over the Ottomans. The negotiations — led by diplomats Mark Sykes of Britain and Francois Georges-Picot of France — were held mainly in late 1915.
The dirty deal divided the Ottoman provinces (except for the Arabian Peninsula) into areas of British and French control and influence. The UK would take over what is today Israel (Palestine), Jordan, and southern Iraq. France was to control southeastern Turkey, northern Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. And the Arabs who would be induced into shedding their blood for the independence that the Allies were to promise them? Well, not only did the humiliated Arabs receive nothing for their efforts – but they had to stand by and watch helplessly as the British allowed wave after wave of European Jews (many of them violent) to emigrate to the new “British Mandate” in Arab Palestine, including their holy city of Jerusalem.
In short, the Allies (All-Lies) cunningly, and in premeditated fashion, betrayed the Arabs in general, and the Palestinians in particular.
In 1935, Lawrence, who remained pro-Arab and anti-Zionist (and rumored to have been pro-Hitler), was killed in a motorcycle “accident” that even some “mainstream” researchers now speculate may have been a hit-job by British Intelligence. (here)
Another dirty backroom deal which was hatched during that same period was the infamous Balfour Agreement — by which the British would, after the war, secure Palestine for Jewish immigration as payoff for American Zionists forcing President Woodrow Wilson to drag the United States into the war on Britain’s side — which happened in 1917 (U.S. troops deployed in 1918). // Latter Day Israeli postage stamps commemorate “Balfour Day” with images of Zionist schemer Chaim Weizmann (l) and Lord Balfour (r).
Hitler’s Meeting with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem
On November 28, 1941 — at a time when Germany was in a very good position in its war against the Soviet Union and the United States is still not involved in the war — Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti (spiritual leader / scholar) of Jerusalem met with Hitler in Berlin. The conventional historical account of the meeting vaguely indicates that the Mufti wanted German support for an uprising against the British and French imperialists, but that Hitler said no. It wasn’t until the 1960’s that a full German record of the meeting between al-Husseini and Hitler was declassified and published. So, who needs academic eggheads to lecture us about historical when the original source for this amazing bit of history is now available to us?
The Real History Chan is pleased to present the official German record of the meeting between Adolf Hitler and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, which took place at the Reich Chancellery in Berlin. The record is complete and unaltered – with some analysis added to enhance understanding.

SS Chief Himmler’s 1943 Telegram to the Grand Mufti:
“To the Grand Mufti Amin al-Husseini,
The National-Socialist movement of greater Germany has made its fight against world Jewry a guiding principle since its very beginning. For that reason it has been closely following the battle of freedom-seeking Arabs — and especially in Palestine against the Jewish invaders. The joint recognition of the enemy, and the joint battle against him are what creates the firm allegiance between Germany and freedom-seeking Muslims all over the world. In this spirit, I am happy to wish you on the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, warm wishes for the continuation of your battle until the big victory.”
German Report: The Grand Mufti began by thanking the Fuhrer for the great honor he had bestowed by receiving him. He wished to seize the opportunity to convey to the Fuhrer of the Greater German Reich, admired by the entire Arab world, his thanks of the sympathy which he had always shown for the Arab and especially the Palestinian cause, and to which he had given clear expression in his public speeches. (emphasis added)
Analysis: Indeed, the Arabs respected Hitler for his expressed sympathy for the Palestinians. Contrary to the false claims of assorted charlatans and fools (or worse?) like Christopher Bjerkness that “Hitler was a Zionist,” nothing could be further from the truth. As far back as Mein Kampf, written in 1925, Hitler scorned the Zionist scheme. He wrote:
“While the Zionists try to make the rest of the World believe that the national consciousness of the Jew finds its satisfaction in the creation of a Palestinian state, the Jews again slyly dupe the dumb Goyim. It doesn’t even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organization for their international world swindler, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.”
The only reason why Germany allowed some its Jews to emigrate to Palestine in 1933 was to break the economic sanctions and get rid of some malcontents at the same time.
German Report (continued) : The Arab countries were firmly convinced that Germany would win the war and that the Arab cause would then prosper. The Arabs were Germany’s natural friends because they had the same enemies as had Germany, namely the English, the Jews and the Communists. Therefore they were prepared to cooperate with Germany with all their hearts and stood ready to participate in the war, not only negatively by the commission of acts of sabotage and the instigation of revolutions, but also positively by the formation of an Arab Legion.
Analysis: The Arabs were willing to rise up against their new rulers exactly as they had against the old ones (the Ottomans). The difference this time around would be that if the Germans won, Hitler — a man who, if anything, was sometimes too honorable — would never have betrayed them like the British and French had three decades earlier. The Arabs trusted Hitler.
German Report (continued) : The Arabs could be more useful to Germany as allies than might be apparent at first glance, both for geographical reasons and because of the suffering inflicted upon them by the English and the Jews. Furthermore, they had had close relations with all Muslim nations, of which they could make use in behalf of the common cause. The Arab Legion would be quite easy to raise. An appeal by the Mufti to the Arab countries and the prisoners of Arab, Algerian, Tunisian and Moroccan nationality in Germany would produce a great number of volunteers eager to fight. Of Germany’s victory the Arab world was firmly convinced, not only because the Reich possessed a large army, brave soldiers and military leaders of genius, but also because the Almighty could never award the victory to an unjust cause.
Analysis: Clearly, Hitler understood the benefit of an alliance with the Arabs and the vast Muslim world in general. The “great number” of Arab “prisoners” mentioned in the report refers to the 80,000 POW’s from France’s Arab colonies that Germany was humanely holding until a final peace treaty — blocked by the British — could be reached. These already-trained soldiers could be unleashed against the depleted British in the Middle East, when the time was right.
German Report (continued) : In this struggle, the Arabs were striving for the independence and unity of Palestine, Syria and Iraq. They had the fullest confidence in the Fuhrer and looked to his hand for the balm on their wounds, which had been inflicted upon them by the enemies of Germany. The Mufti then mentioned the letter he had received from Germany, which stated that Germany was holding no Arab territories and understood and recognized the aspirations to independence and freedom of the Arabs, just as she supported the elimination of the Jewish national home. (emphasis added)
A public declaration in this sense would be very useful for its propagandistic effect on the Arab peoples at this moment. It would rouse the Arabs from their momentary lethargy and give them new courage. It would also ease the Mufti’s work of secretly organizing the Arabs against the moment when they could strike. At the same time, he could give the assurance that the Arabs would in strict discipline patiently wait for the right moment and only strike upon an order from Berlin.
With regard to the events in Iraq, the Mufti observed that the Arabs in that country certainly had by no means been incited by Germany to attack England, but solely had acted in reaction to a direct English assault upon their honor.
The Turks, he believed, would welcome the establishment of an Arab government in the neighboring territories because they would prefer weaker Arab to strong European governments in the neighboring countries and, being themselves a nation of 7 million (actually, 18 million in 1941), they had more over nothing to fear from the 1,700,000 Arabs inhabiting Syria, Transjordan, Iraq and Palestine.
France likewise would have no objections to the unification plan because it had conceded independence to Syria as early as 1936 and had given her approval to the unification of Iraq and Syria under King Faisal as early as 1933.
Analysis: This plan to break British power in the Middle East was well thought-out — not only logistically, but geo-politically.
German Report (continued) : In these circumstances he was renewing his request that the Fuhrer make a public declaration so that the Arabs would not lose hope, which is so powerful a force in the life of nations. With such hope in their hearts the Arabs, as he had said, were willing to wait. They were not pressing for immediate realization for their aspirations; they could easily wait half a year or a whole year. But if they were not inspired with such a hope by a declaration of this sort, it could be expected that the English would be the gainers from it.
The Fuhrer replied that Germany’s fundamental attitude on these questions, as the Mufti himself had already stated, was clear. Germany stood for uncompromising war against the Jews. That naturally included active opposition to the Jewish national home in Palestine, which was nothing other than a center, in the form of a state, for the exercise of destructive influence by Jewish interests. Germany was also aware that the assertion that the Jews were carrying out the functions of economic pioneers in Palestine was a lie. The work there was done only by the Arabs, not by the Jews. Germany was resolved, step by step, to ask one European nation after the other to solve its Jewish problem, and at the proper time to direct a similar appeal to non-European nations as well.
Germany was at the present time engaged in a life and death struggle with two citadels of Jewish power: Great Britain and Soviet Russia. Theoretically there was a difference between England’s capitalism and Soviet Russia’s communism; actually, however, the Jews in both countries were pursuing a common goal. This was the decisive struggle; on the political plane, it presented itself in the main as a conflict between Germany and England, but ideologically it was a battle between National Socialism and the Jews. It went without saying that Germany would furnish positive and practical aid to the Arabs involved in the same struggle, because platonic promises were useless in a war for survival or destruction in which the Jews were able to mobilize all of England’s power for their ends.
The aid to the Arabs would have to be material aid. Of how little help sympathies alone were in such a battle had been demonstrated plainly by the operation in Iraq, where circumstances had not permitted the rendering of really effective, practical aid. In spite of all the sympathies, German aid had not been sufficient and Iraq was overcome by the power of Britain, that is, the guardian of the Jews.
Analysis: This is confirmation that Hitler wanted to bring the fight to the British in the Middle East, and expel both them and the Zionist invaders of Palestine.
German Report: The Mufti could not but be aware, however, that the outcome of the struggle going on at present would also decide the fate of the Arab world. The Fuhrer therefore had to think and speak coolly and deliberately, as a rational man and primarily as a soldier, as the leader of the German and allied armies. Everything of a nature to help in this titanic battle for the common cause, and thus also for the Arabs, would have to be done. Anything however, that might contribute to weakening the military situation must be put aside, no matter how unpopular this move might be.
Germany was now engaged in very severe battles to force the gateway to the northern Caucasus region. The difficulties were mainly with regard to maintaining the supply, which was most difficult as a result of the destruction of railroads and highways as well as the oncoming winter. If at such a moment, the Fuhrer were to raise the problem of Syria in a declaration, those elements in France which were under de Gaulle’s influence would receive new strength. They would interpret the Fuhrer’s declaration as an intention to break up France’s colonial empire and appeal to their fellow countrymen that they should rather make common cause with the English to try to save what still could be saved. A German declaration regarding Syria would in France be understood to refer to the French colonies in general, and that would at the present time create new troubles in western Europe, which means that a portion of the German armed forces would be immobilized in the west and no longer be available for the campaign in the east.
The Fuhrer then made the following statement to the Mufti, enjoining him to lock it in the uttermost depths of his heart:
1. He (the Fuhrer) would carry on the battle to the total destruction of the Judeo-Communist empire in Europe.
2. At some moment which was impossible to set exactly today but which in any event was not distant, the German armies would in the course of this struggle reach the southern exit from Caucasia.
3. As soon as this had happened, the Fuhrer would on his own give the Arab world the assurance that its hour of liberation had arrived. Germany’s objective would then be solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere under the protection of British power. In that hour the Mufti would be the most authoritative spokesman for the Arab world. It would then be his task to set off the Arab operations, which he had secretly prepared. When that time had come, Germany could also be indifferent to French reaction to such a declaration.
Once Germany had forced open the road to Iran and Iraq through Rostov; it would be also the beginning of the end of the British World Empire. He (the Fuhrer) hoped that the coming year would make it possible for Germany to thrust open the Caucasian gate to the Middle East. For the good of their common cause, it would be better if the Arab proclamation were put off for a few more months than if Germany were to create difficulties for herself without being able thereby to help the Arabs.
The Fuhrer fully appreciated the eagerness of the Arabs for a public declaration of the sort requested by the Grand Mufti. But he would beg him to consider that he (the Fuhrer) himself was the Chief of State of the German Reich for five long years during which he was unable to make to his own homeland the announcement of its liberation. He had to wait with that until the announcement could be made on the basis of a situation brought about by the force of arms that the Anschluss had been carried out.
The moment that Germany’s tank divisions and air squadrons had made their appearance south of the Caucasus, the public appeal requested by the Grand Mufti could go out to the Arab world.
Analysis: You see, Hitler did not “turn down” the Mufti’s request for a public declaration. To the contrary, he promised bold words and actions, when the timing was right, sometime in 1942.
Hitler’s plan was to first defeat the Soviets in southern Russia, grab their oil fields, and then head south towards the Middle East. At that historical moment of supreme strength and momentum, Hitler would excite and inspire the Arab world by publicly announcing the secret German-Arab alliance to expel the Rothschild British and Zionists from the Middle East – with the Jews (both in Europe and in Palestine) being humanely transferred to a new homeland on the beautiful island of Madagascar. (here)
German Report (continued) : The Grand Mufti replied that it was his view that everything would come to pass just as the Fuhrer had indicated. He was fully reassured and satisfied by the words which he had heard from the Chief of the German State. He asked, however, whether it would not be possible, secretly at least, to enter into an agreement with Germany of the kind he had just outlined for the Fuhrer. (emphasis added)
The Fuhrer replied that he had just now given the Grand Mufti precisely that confidential declaration. The Grand Mufti thanked him for it and stated in conclusion that he was taking his leave from the Fuhrer in full confidence and with reiterated thanks for the interest shown in the Arab cause.
Analysis: Unfortunately for both Germany and the Arabs, the pivotal 1942-1943 Battle of Stalingrad
(in southern Russia) prevented the German breakout through the Caucuses and down to the Middle East. With the limitless bodies of the Red Army being so heavily (and I mean heavily!) supplied by FDR’s “Lend Lease” arsenal of state-of-the-art weaponry and essential supplies; and with Germany facing an American-led second front in the West and in Africa — the promised and expected German liberation of the Arabs and of occupied Palestine (including Jerusalem!) never happened. Oh what a moment in time that would have been!
