Overview

"In 1921, Haj Amin al-Husseini became the mufti of Jerusalem, the most eminent and influential Islamic leader in the Middle East. For years, al-Husseini fomented violence in the region against the Jews he loathed and wished to destroy. Forced out in 1937, he eventually found his way to the country whose legions he desperately wished to join: Nazi Germany." "David G. Dalin and John F. Rothmann show how al-Husseini ingratiated himself with his hero, Adolf Hitler, becoming, with his blonde hair and blue eyes, an "honorary Aryan," while dreaming of being installed Nazi leader of the Middle East." Icon of Evil chronicles al-Husseini's postwar relationships with such influential Islamic figures as the radical theoretician Sayyid Qutb and Saddam Hussein's powerful uncle, General Khairallah Talfah, and his crucial mentoring of the young Yasser Arafat. Finally, it provides evidence that al-Husseini's actions and writings serve as inspirations today to the leaders of Hamas, Hezbollah, and other terrorist organizations pledged to destroy Israel and the United States.

    Most enlightening expose on the Middle East predicament.

    I'd always read about the Balfour agreement, but this book shows how it was window dressing for an already pre-decided British policy.

    A person that knows history will see that today's problems have roots that go back to the anti-Jewish Nazis.

    Expected More

    I read this book and found it difficult to relate to some of the perplexing issues of the foreign matter. The cover of the book could have been better. I simply expected more substance and did not find it in this read.
