Just Your Average Islamic Law Scholar?


According to the Washington Post this morning, there’s consternation again about a building plan in Jerusalem:  ”The United States had previously objected to the project, which would be built on the site of the Shepherd Hotel, the former home of the late Haj Amin Husseini, a former mufti, or Islamic law scholar, of Jerusalem.”  Who? Oh, this guy:

Just your average “Islamic law scholar,” I guess.  Oh, and yes, this picture — as well as Husseini’s efforts to recruit Muslims for the Waffen-SS, as well as his efforts to slaughter Jews throughout Tel Aviv and Jerusalem – happened before there was any such “obstacle” as “settlements.”
