Adolf Hitler talking with Grand Mufti Mohammed Amin Al-Husseini

Haj Mohammed Amin Al-Husseini (1895-1973) was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem during the early 20th century and during World War II.

An outspoken anti-Semite, he had a very close friendship with Adolf Hitler and visited Muslim SS units, such as the Handschar Brigade. Al-Husseini also supported Hitler's deadly "Final Solution." In 1945, Al-Husseini was captured with many Nazis at Nuremberg and was labeled a war criminal, but he escaped and fled to Egypt, where he lived until his death in 1973.

Yasser Arafat was a distant cousin of his. On January 4, 2013, Mahmoud Abbas, spoke glowingly of the legacy of the Godfather of the PLO, the Mufti of Jerusalem.[1]
