This is the message that needs to get out. Because it is the truth.
After the Mufti arrived in Germany, he became heavily involved in German propaganda broadcasts to Arab nations. Jeffrey Herf documents one such broadcast where the Germans explicitly called on Arabs to murder their Jewish neighbors - way beyond the propaganda that they broadcast to the West. While we don't know if the Mufti was directly involved in this particular broadcast, his arrival changed the nature of the German Arabic propaganda to combine Nazi and Quranic antisemitism:
From the Voice of Free Arabism, At 8:15 p.m. on July 7, 1942:
In the face of this barbaric procedure by the British we think it best, if the life of the Egyptian nation is to be saved, that the Egyptians rise as one man to kill the Jews before they have a chance of betraying the Egyptian people. It is the duty of the Egyptians to annihilate the Jews and to destroy their property. … You must kill the Jews, before they open fire on you. Kill the Jews, who have appropriated your wealth and who are plotting against your security. Arabs of Syria, Iraq, and Palestine, what are you waiting for? The Jews are planning to violate your women, to kill your children and to destroy you. According to the Muslim religion, the defense of your life is a duty which can only be fulfilled by annihilating the Jews. This is your best opportunity to get rid of this dirty race, which has usurped your rights and brought misfortune and destruction on your countries. Kill the Jews, burn their property, destroy their stores, annihilate these base supporters of British imperialism. Your sole hope of salvation lies in annihilating the Jews before they annihilate you.
Somehow, I don't think they were concerned about the "occupation."
