If you ever wondered why many Palestians were holding up swastikas….. it goes way back. Muslim Nazi collaborators from WWII

Actually if memory serves the symbol we know as the swastika was a commonly used symbol in both Hindu and Buddhist faiths and it refers to family or children before Hitler misappropriated it having been given false information from his preferred Nazi historians believing it to represent 'the German motherland'

@Picklebobble2 Regardless of its prior symbolism, it has been 'jacked, much like the rainbow.

@NativePortlander1970 I think it illustrates the point perfectly.
Push a symbol with an unpalatable association long enough and people will associate one with the other.
It's even used to this day in advertising

He only used them because he needed them to fight the british, he would have tried to eliminate them if he had the chance
Swastikas were around before the Nazis. You will find them in many parts of Asia.
The symbol we know as the swastika belonged to many cultures as a symbol of peace before the Nazis stole it and redefined it as something evil. I haven’t seen any Palestinian with it, but as several Asian cultures were among those who had it first, who can say ?
As for the Mufti and his affiliation with Hitler, more likely an alliance of convenience like that of the Japanese—not because Hitler considered them part of his "Master Race".
@LeopoldBloom No doubt [b]he[/b] did. What would’ve become of him had Hitler won, we’ll never know.
@bijouxbroussard And Netanyahu’s claim that the Mufti "gave Hitler the idea" of murdering the Jews rather than relocating them doesn’t match the timing. When they met, in 1941, Hitler had already long since begun having people thrown into the camps and murdered.
@bijouxbroussard Hitler got the idea from the Armenian genocide and the treatment of the Native Americans here in the U.S.

@Oster1 And sometimes, he is hysterical..ly funny!
Ancient proverb: the enemy of my enemy is my friend
Yeah, the swastika originated long before Hitler. That ain’t got shit to do with Muslims and Nazi aligning themselves against the Jews though. But…. As they say, my enemy’s enemy is my friend.
Strange this doesn't get brought up.... Israel was a safe haven for Jews fleeing Europe.
@BritishFailedAesthetic Or it would have been if the British hadn’t restricted Jewish immigration.

When Mohammed founded his religion the area was filled with Jews, Christians and Pagans

This led to military conquests against Jewish settlements like Banu Quarazy where at least 500 captive Jewish men and boys were executed on the pretext that they had reniged on a deal with Mohammed

Depending on how he was feeling Jews and Christians were either afforded a certain respect as 'people of the book ' or according to hadith he described Jews as the descendents of pigs and apes, cursed by God

This animosity wasn't helped by the fact that Mohamed's death was caused by poisoning by an elderly Jewish female captive

For some people the conflict goes even further back to Abraham with Jews being descendents of Sarah and Muslims descended from Ishmael, the son of Sarah's handmaid Hagar

Ironically the Bible says of Ishmael, "He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.”

So when Hitler came along....it was a natural allegiance for some

Yep, the Grand Mufti was a huge fan of Nazism.

@Max41 man, to this day I'm curious which drug you're on, because it's gotta be some heavy stuff.
