The Nazi roots of Islamic statehood models ...

This rather long article looks at how "National Socialist" (that's what "Nazi" is short for in German, in case you didn't know) models came to be the prevailing "Islamic State" form over the past 100 years. The Nazi regime used the Muslim hatred for Jews to deeply infiltrate all levels and areas of the emerging middle-eastern nations. Quite an interesting read:

"Haj Mohammed Effendi Amin el-Husseini, appointed Grand Mufti of Jerusalem ... in 1921, played a central role in introducing the ideology and tactics of the National Socialism of Adolf Hitler into the Arab World." ... "Progressive forward-thinking Arabs who have sought freedom oriented sovereignty and the benefits of modern democracy were swept away by the thuggish and radical followers of the Mufti. His inheritance is a Fascist movement that continues to predominate. His philosophical offspring continue to be animated by a modern Islamic form of authoritarian Socialism that was advocated by the Mufti ..."

This little-known (although having been convicted of war crimes at Nuremberg) figure has direct links to both Saddam Hussein and Yasir Arafat, as well as having been the head of the fanatical Wahabi sect, which is still creating havoc for the Saudis ... this is a truly remarkable piece of research!
