Hot off the Press; Netanyahu Is a History Revisionist

by Gilad Atzmon, 22/10/2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has attracted criticism for an
incendiary speech in which he accused the Palestinian grand mufti of
Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, of “inspiring the Holocaust”. Critics
accuse Netanyahu of trivialising the Holocaust by attributing the
impetus for Hitler’s plan to exterminate the Jews of Europe to the
grand mufti.
In his speech Netanyahu described a meeting between Haj Amin
al-Husseini and Hitler in November 1941. “Hitler didn’t want to
exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jews. And Haj
Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said: ‘If you expel them, they’ll
all come here [to Palestine].’” According to Netanyahu, Hitler then
asked: “What should I do with them?” and the mufti replied: “Burn
them.” Netanyahu chose not to reveal how he had uncovered the
transcript of the conversation.

This shift in Israeli historical perspective, illuminated by
Netanyahu, is timely and welcome. In recent days it has become clear
that Palestine is not willing to accept the Zionist presence on its
land any longer and this feeling is more than understandable. Time is
overdue for the Jews to move on and invent a new phantasmic promised
land.  Germany is obviously the ideal candidate. Angela Merkel loves
immigration and she is probably willing to take a few million Israeli
humus eaters to balance the victims of Ziocon wars who are fleeing into
her Germanic haven.

Berlin has recently become the new Jerusalem for the Israelis.
Thousand of young Israelis have moved to Berlin in recent years in a
migration wave that in Hebrew is called, ‘Olim l’Berlin’ (Let’s
ascend to Berlin). Yesterday PM Netanyahu joined the call of the
Israeli youth, and he has finally vindicated Hitler and the Germans. It
seems that actually it is the Palestinians who should be blamed for
the Shoah. In the Hebraic sphere they like to keep the equation simple –
the eternal victim (the Jew) is the constant factor, the anti-Semite
is the variable element. The anti Semite keeps changing, it never stops

 Some boring Israeli historians are not yet willing to follow
Netanyahu’s revisionist shift. They still insist that maintaining
German guilt is essential. Professor Dan Michman, head of the Institute
of Holocaust Research at Bar-Ilan University said, “while Hitler did
indeed meet the mufti this happened after the Final Solution began.” I
am always confused by Jewish scholarship and the way Jewish scholars
fiddle with facts to make them fit ever-changing Jewish interests.
According to the Zionist Holocaust religion, the “Final solution” was
first established in the Wannsee Conference in January 1942. But Hitler
met the Mufti in November 1941.
