THE FAHUD-a book report

By Edwin Black

Roots of the Arab-Nazi Alliance in the Holocaust

About a month ago while flipping channels on a Saturday afternoon I caught a discussion on C-Span. Mr. Black was giving his book review. It immediately caught my attention. It turned out that there were survivors of the holocaust in the audience who shared their memories with the other attendees. I went to and ordered a copy. I read it slowly and thoroughly over a three week period of time. The contents were so brutal and savage that it was difficult to absorb too much at one sitting.
How could it be that for thousands of years people of the Jewish faith could be persecuted as they were and as they still are today? I found it ironic that Pope Benedict XVI just this week absolved the Jewish people of the guilt of crucifying Jesus Christ. He stated that only a few Temple leaders and a small group of supporters were primarily responsible for Christ’s crucifixion. Thru the centuries the Jewish people have been brutalized for this perceived sin. Had Popes taken that position centuries ago perhaps things might have been better for them.
This book primarily documents the cruelty of the Nazis and Muslims but I would be remiss if I didn’t include a little about Catholics. In 1492 the Jews of Spain were expelled for not converting to Christianity, about 200,000. During the Second World War the Croatia Catholics were without question the most sadistic of all time. The killing machine was called “The Ustacha”. Over 100,000 Jews and Gypsies were butchered. Even the commanding German General Edmond Glaise von Horstenau reported back to Berlin “...the Ustachas have gone raging mad”.
In his book “Mein Kampf” Adolf Hitler vilified all with a single drop of Jewish blood as being guilty and as soon as he assumed power he began the systematic removal of all Jews from Germany which culminated with the mass murder of over 6 million Jews. I found it worth reporting that the system installed to identify these victims was designed and engineered by IBM, including the Chairman Thomas J. Watson. They worked behind the scenes to bring Hitler’s promises to life with great velocity and precision. I would be remiss if I did not also condemn our very own Henry Ford who was violently anti Jewish. He published an article entitled “The International Jew and The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”. Hitler proclaimed Ford as “My Hero” and reproduced thousands of copies for distribution in Germany.
In the year 610 Mohammad experienced his first revelation. At first there was a kinship with the Jews. He brought Arabs to accept “one God”, the same God revered by the Jews and Christians. He sought to reinvent “God’s teachings” into his unique Arab spiritualism, based not on tolerance, but destruction or subjugation of any who would not convert to Islam and Allah. The proud Jews would not convert and starting in 624 Mohammed began his campaign to kill or convert the Jews. He gave no quarter. For instance when the Jews surrendered in Medina he assembled from 600 to 900 in the marketplace and beheaded them all, taking their women as slaves. And so it began and has continued for the centuries to follow. In book 041, Number 6985 it states “The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or tree would say; Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and slay him.” (My thoughts, for President Obama to keep mouthing words to the effect that Islam is a religion of peace is a mockery of what recorded history has proved”.)
For 2,600 years Jews were imbedded in the Iraqi culture as a subordinated underclass known as dhimmi. This ended in a wild killing spree June 1-2, 1941. The title of this book comes from this incident. The Arabic word for violent dispossession is Farhud. The Jews did not consider themselves Zionists but Iraqi, but after the Fahhud occurred a mass exodus began since they realized they could no longer remain in Iraq. The homes and businesses had been identified and mobs began to swarm over the city slaughtering all Jews they could find. As an aside, British troops were stationed outside of the city limits but were not activated to intervene.
The Arab-Nazi Alliance chapter is the main subject of this book. It begins with the following statement; “Our hatred for the Jews dates from God’s condemnation of them for their persecution and rejection of Isa (Jesus Christ), and their subsequent rejection later of his chosen Prophet (Mohammad)… Verily the word of God teaches us, and we implicitly believe this…for a Muslim to kill a Jew…ensures him an immediate entry into Heaven and into the august presence of God Almighty. What more can a Muslim want in this hard world”?
Mufti Husseini of Jerusalem met with Adolf Hitler and pledged the support of Muslims everywhere to do their part in the extermination of Jews. He raised whole divisions trained by German officers for that purpose. This was mostly in Yugoslavia. By the end of the war very few Jews remained alive. It also occurred in North Africa. Hitler’s war against the Jews stopped in 1945 when Germany was defeated by the Allies but it continued unabated in the Mid East as Jews were targeted for persecution, expropriation and expulsion after the 1948 birth of the State of Israel. The Fahrud was not a beginning, not an ending. It may not even be at a midpoint.
This last sentence was the author’s book ending. I will conclude this review with my own thoughts. With the turmoil raging thru North Africa today, I am certain that as it runs it’s course the combined wrath of the Muslim Arabs will be directed to the accomplishment of” the final solution” by attacking Israel with the intent to eliminate the Jewish people from their part of the world. It has been documented that there are thousands of rockets placed in Lebanon, supplied by Iran. Some may have deadly tocsins as their payload. Hatred of Jews is imbedded within the Islamic faith to such a degree that I am convinced that Israel’s travail may begin within months if not weeks. With Obama as our President, Israel cannot expect that America will come to its rescue. They will fight to the end. Their days of being led quietly to slaughter are over. With their nuclear arsenal they will exact severe destruction but in the end they will lose all. After that the West will be further infiltrated by those of the Muslim faith, and in the end will lose the civilization that has been nurtured for centuries, as the goal of all nations being under Sharia law is accomplished. I probably will not be alive to witness nor would I wish to be. Good luck to the rest of you.
