Muslim Brotherhood & Hitler

Posted on 11/22/2013 by




Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 by a 22-year old Muslim named Hassan al-Banna,  who admired Adolf Hitler’s hatred of the Jews and persistently wrote to Hitler to  express his admiration for Hitler, as well as his desire for collaboration with Hitler’s  Nazi Party.

When Hitler rose to power,  his Nazis supported al-Banna, a school teacher, to grow the Muslim Brotherhood into its ally in the Middle East; by 1938,  the  membership of Muslim Brotherhood topped 200,000.

During World War II, members of the Muslim Brotherhood spied for Hitler’s Nazis in the Middle East and fought  for  Hitler as Nazi  troops in two specially formed Muslim Waffen-SS Handschar Divisions (‘Handschar’ is German for scimitar, the curved saber used by the  Muslim troops of the Ottoman empire).

Above  is Hitler with Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and a close ally of al-Banna, in  Berlin, where he lived as Hitler’s VIP guest from 1941 to 1945, before joining al-Banna  in Egypt in 1946. The Muslim Nazi troops of the Waffen-SS Handschar Divisions are being reviewed by Haj Amin al-Husseini (right) and  by the SS Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler (below).

Due to the large number of Muslim volunteers, the Handschar Divisions were the largest of Hitler’s 38 Waffen-SS divisions.

After  World War II, the Muslim Brotherhood continued to grow, supported this time by the  West, which saw it as a counterweight to the threat of Soviet-backed communism  in the Middle East. By the late 1940s, Muslim Brotherhood numbered 500,000 members.
