Jerusalem Ex-mufti Re-appears on Cairo Broadcast; Attacks Jews

Download PDF for this date

The ex-Mufti of Jerusalem, who collaborated with Hitler in the annihilation of Jews, re-appeared today on a broadcast from Cairo, mouthing his old vituperative remarks about Jews and the “prediction” that “Palestine will be liberated” by the Arabs. The rabble rousing speech by the former Mufti Haj Amin al Husseini was beamed to all Moslem countries, including Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. “The British evacuation of the Suez Canal,” he said, “is a particularly happy event for us, Palestinian Arabs, because it foreshadows the liberation of Palestine. The day of salvation will come without a doubt.”
