IS and SS
There are many opinions why Daesh, the Arabic abbreviation for the organization known as the Islamic State, became known by the abbreviation ‘IS.’ The truth is that name is so close to the one used for the terrible Gestapo headed by Himmler, who was behind annihilating millions in prisons they supervised. In addition, Gestapo paramilitary troops assisted Nazi regular army in committing terrible horrifying crimes. So, the name IS brings world peoples hate to the Gestapo back to minds.
What makes things worse, is that IS and its leader Abu Baker Al-Baghdadi are not any less brutal or criminal than the Gestapo. Both organizations’ mottos reflect their founders’ ideas in terms of hatred towards all of mankind, mastery in slaughtering and decimating people, strong belief in killing merely for the sake of killing and destroying human heritage in the lands they occupy.
Following Hitler’s suicide in 1945, Heinrich Himmler did the same, taking away so many of the secrets and ideas of that dark period of mankind history along with them. We just hope that we do not someday hear that Al-Baghdadi disappeared or committed suicide as well!
Therefore, it was not strange that in response to the world’s compassion with Palestinians, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tries to mix everything by reminding the world of a meeting between Hitler and the Palestinian Mufti, Amin Al-Husseini and claiming that it was the latter who convinced Nazi monsters to commit the Holocaust crimes, which are condemned by the entire humanity except for some stupid monsters, against the Jews.
The sad thing is that by committing such brutal crimes and putting them on tape, IS leaders are the ones who create humanitarian and civilized animosity to the peoples in this region giving world armies excuses to throw all their destructive weapons storage at Arabs and Muslims after IS practices contributed to killing international compassion with our peoples. If we only exclude IS from the regional equation, all the excuses used to justify the atrocities against the inhabited of ISplagued regions, who once get killed and destroyed by IS and once by its enemies, would be void.
Finally, how can we explain the information showing that IS could only expand in Mosul and Ramadi thanks to former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki troops’ leniency, as well as expand in Palmyra and Deir Ez-Zor thanks to the leniency of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s troops, though both are IS enemies?
It seems that Al-Husseini insisted on doing the Palestinian cause more harm even after his death as in his diaries published in 1999, 25 years after his death, he mentioned how he asked Himmler to prevent the Jews from migrating out of Germany and the countries it occupied. He also refers to American and French press accusations to him of precipitating in Jews’ annihilation. The funny thing is that his diary also refers to arresting all his companions while he was sent to live in a luxurious heavily guarded Parisian mansion to protect him from the French resistance’s members. The diaries also mentioned that Britain did not ask France to hand him over to be tried, but rather allowed him to head to Egypt, which was under the British mandate, and where King Farouk received him and granted him a palace to live in. Well, nowadays, many such Muftis are living amongst us.
