Germany: Full Censorship Now Official
Courts Rewrite History by Judith Bergman

We advise you to read the article fully (if time permits); we chose to write a comment to Gatestone at the end of the whole article referring to this specific point:
' ... the district court in Munich recently sentenced a German journalist, Michael Stürzenberger, to six months in jail for posting on his Facebook page a historical photo of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, shaking the hand of a senior Nazi official in Berlin in 1941. The prosecution accused Stürzenberger of "inciting hatred towards Islam" and "denigrating Islam" by publishing the photograph. The court found Stürzenberger guilty of "disseminating the propaganda of anti-constitutional organizations". While the mutual admiration that once existed between al-Husseini and German Nazis is an undisputed historical fact, now evidently history is being rewritten by German courts. Stürzenberger has appealed the verdict.'
Also note the picture, just below the paragraph on the Gatestone website, which illustrates the 'Grand Mufti ... shaking the hand of a senior Nazi official in Berlin in 1941' (the official looks like an obese Hitler).

If Michael Stürzenberger receives this sentence for his 'appalling crime' (of telling the truth!) what do you think the writer of this article below should receive (see this page):
'Yasser Arafat's hatred of Jews, one that animates many Palestinian Arabs today, is traceable to the influence of his uncle, Nazi war criminal Haj Amin Muhammad al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Husseini was a leader of the 1920 Arab riots where terror against Jews was introduced into a previously peaceful Palestine. British Mandate Governor General Herbert Samuel subsequently appointed him Mufti of Jerusalem. As Mufti, he instigated murderous pogroms against Jews in 1921, 1929, and during the 1936-1939 rebellion. Husseini consolidated his control over the Palestinian Arabs with a campaign of murder against Jews and Arabs, the recruitment of armed militias, and the raising of funds from around the Muslim world by means of promulgating anti-Jewish propaganda. Certainly there are echoes of Husseini today in his nephew Arafat.
Husseini became a supporter of the Nazi 'final solution' to the 'Jewish question' in the early days of Hitler's regime. In 1939, when his Nazi sympathies came to the attention of the British, he fled to Berlin where Adolf Hitler personally welcomed him. The Nazi's lodged Husseini comfortably, for the duration of the war, in a confiscated Hebrew School and set him up as Prime Minister in exile of a pro-Nazi pan-Arab government. His foreign minister in exile was Iraqi exile Rashid Ali al-Kilani and his war minister Fawsi al-Kaukji. The Nazi Foreign Ministry paid him $10,000 per month and Himmlers SS transferred portions of the 'sonderfund,' funds confiscated from Jews, for his use in setting up pro-Nazi and anti-Jewish activities in the Arab world.
According to documentation from the Nuremberg and Eichmann trials, the SS helped finance Husseini's efforts in the 1936-39 uprising in Palestine. Adolf Eichmann actually visited Palestine and met Husseini at that time and subsequently maintained regular contact with him later in Berlin. Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS, took Husseini on tours of Auschwitz and financed his Moslem academy in Dresden, set up by the Nazis as a training ground for their envisioned Nazi/Muslim puppet government. Husseini recruited Bosnian Muslims in Nazi occupied Yugoslavia in his efforts to ethnically cleanse their country of Jews. When the Red Cross offered to mediate with Eichmann in a trade between German citizens and 10,000 Jewish children being sent from Poland to the Theresienstadt death camp, Husseini directly intervened with Himmler and was successful in canceling the exchange.
After the 1942-allied victory against Nazi Field Marshall Erwin Rommel at El Alamein, Egypt, Husseini, broadcasting in Arabic, implored his Arab followers to continue supporting a potential Nazi conquest of Palestine. The Mufti was planning a triumphant return and had plans to construct a death camp, modeled after Auschwitz, near Nablus. Husseini incited his pro-Nazi followers in his broadcast with the words 'Arise, O sons of Arabia. Fight for your sacred rights. Slaughter Jews wherever you find them. Their spilled blood pleases Allah, our history and religion. That will save our honor.' In late 1944, in a final desperate attempt to trigger a pro-Nazi Arab rebellion, Husseini's agents, a German-Arab commando unit, parachuted into Palestine and poisoned Tel Aviv's wells.
Husseini, declared a war criminal at Nuremberg and sought by Yugoslavia after the war, fled to Egypt where he spent the rest of his life, he died in 1974, contributing to an Arab network of espionage, sabotage, and anti-Jewish propaganda that involved many former Nazis and Nazi sympathizers. In his memoirs, he wrote, 'Our fundamental condition for co-operating with Germany was a free hand to eradicate every last Jew from Palestine and the Arab world. I asked Hitler for an explicit undertaking to allow us to solve the Jewish problem in a manner befitting our national and racial aspirations and according to the scientific methods innovated by Germany in the handling of its Jews. The answer I got was: ''The Jews are yours.''
We also wrote (on this same page):
'Neither Arafat nor the PLO disguise their source of inspiration. The Grand Mufti el-Husseini is venerated as a hero by the PLO and the late Faisal Husseini was his grandson. In 1985 Arafat declared the Grand Mufti a respected educator and leader and claimed it was an honour to follow in his footsteps. Arafat has not always been so forward in declaring his admiration and relationship to the Mufti for, in 1951, Rahman Abdul Rauf el-Qudwa el-Husseini (aka Abd al-Rahman abd al-Bauf Arafat al-Qud al-Husseini) matriculated to the University of Cairo but concealed his true identity by enlisting as 'Yasser Arafat.' The Bet Agron International Centre in Jerusalem interviewed Arafat's brother and sister, who described the Mufti as a cousin (family member) with tremendous influence on young 'Yasser' after the Mufti returned from Berlin to Cairo. The Nazi influence on the fallen Saddam Hussein is also well documented and it is no surprise to learn that he was likewise raised by an uncle, Khayrallah Tulfah, who was a leader in the Mufti's pro-Nazi coup in Iraq in May 1941!'
We wrote these words some years ago and, like many other genuine Christians, wait to see what God has in store for Germany and Austria (and others) in their reactions to the Islamic Invasion? In line with another header of yours (on the same Gatestone page), Stürzenberger's real crime is also Monty Pythonesque: but, for 'Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition', read 'Nobody expects the Nazis (to be reminded that they shared the same hatred for Jews as Islam)'!
TCE do not believe that all Germans are Nazis, but it has become more and more clear that the same demonic spirit that controlled the Nazis still has considerable power in the EU!
Lest you think we are being extremely harsh towards our (present) EU neighbours, consider this Gatestone page - try and read the whole article if you can but, particularly, read around this section (TCE high-lights in red):
'Shame is still present in the minds of million of Germans, but fading away. A few years ago, a survey showed almost 70% of Germans were angered at still being held responsible today for crimes against Jews. Roughly 25% of people surveyed agreed with the statement: "Many Jews try to use Germany's Third Reich past to their advantage". Recent polls shows that between one-third and one-half of Germans view Israel as the political equivalent of Nazi Germany. The German government now regularly pretends to give lessons on morality to Israel, but never criticizes terrorist leaders such as Mahmoud Abbas.
Germany remains in a position of appeasing, securing and strengthening economic ties with rogue regimes such as Iran. The German army is so ill-equipped that during exercises instead of weapons, it uses broomsticks. Polls show that the German population now think that the main danger to world peace does not come from Iran or North Korea, but from the United States. Germany is today the most anti-American country in the Western world . Stern, Germany's most popular news weekly magazine, recently put on its cover an image of Donald Trump performing a Nazi salute while draped in the American flag.'
We wonder if any members of 'Stern' have been threatened with jail sentences for this act - or if the Germans who vote in this way ever ask themselves who is actually attacking them in their streets since they invited so many 'helpless Islamic refugees' into their country?
