Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been taking a lot of heat with respect to his comments that Muslims, and the Muslim idea, the Islamic idea, was behind the Holocaust. Not excusing Hitler for the Holocaust, of course, with the extermination of nearly six million Jews and others. But he also points out that some of these ideas of the genocide against the Jews with Islam.
Mat Staver: Matt, Pam Geller wrote an article entitled, “Netanyahu Tells Truth about Mufti’s Role in Holocaust” and she wrote it in BarbWire.com. She speaks about some of the pushback that he got for the statement. And he told the Zionist congress recently, and I’m quoting from Netanyahu, this is the statement that caused all the controversy, ““Hitler didn’t want to exterminate the Jews at the time; he wanted to expel the Jews.” Netanyahu quoted Hitler asking the mufti, “So what should I do with them?” The mufti responded, according to Netanyahu, “Burn them.’”
That comes from the statement that he spoke to the Zionist congress. And of course that got a lot of pushback. The Mufti of Jerusalem actually did live in Berlin from 1941 – 1945, and a Muslim SS division was recruited for Hitler. So he was part of this whole process to exterminate the Jews.
Matt Barber: Yea…I’m wondering Mat, where is the controversy? Benjamin Netanyahu happens to be 100% historically correct and any honest reading of the Quran, and simply taking leaders of the Muslim world at their word, what do Nazis and Islamists have in common? they both sought out and seek out the extermination of the Jews.
So I’m kinda at a loss as to why the leftist Mainstream Media and others are so up in arms over this factual comment.
