5.0 von 5 Sternen History does repeat itself.
Well researched and we'll articulated. There are many interesting revaluation and findings that illuminate the realities then and now.

Perhaps the most reliable way to assess the accuracy of a historical review is to see if it can (or could have in the past) serve as a compass and an indicator toward future events. As they say, history does repeat itself...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Nazis, Islamists, and the Making of the Modern Middle East (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Well researched and we'll articulated. There are many interesting revaluation and findings that illuminate the realities then and now.

Perhaps the most reliable way to assess the accuracy of a historical review is to see if it can (or could have in the past) serve as a compass and an indicator toward future events. As they say, history does repeat itself. This body of work certainly meets this criteria - it creates a blue print that could have predicted the rise of the political Islam in its current form and other trends in the region. Highly recommended.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Of Nazis and Islamists, 26. Februar 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Nazis, Islamists, and the Making of the Modern Middle East (Gebundene Ausgabe)
There has been an intense collaboration and cooperation between Nazi Germany and the Islamists forces like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt that determined the course of events in the Middle East till today. These forces not only collaborated with the Nazi regime but they also provided Thousands of Nazis with a safe haven after the war.

The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Amin Al-Husaini, was a Jew hater and an advocate of Islamist radicalism who spent the war years in Berlin where he lived in luxury. He was the central figure who supported Hitler in his evil and sinister crime against European Jewry. In return, Hitler promised the Mufti that the extermination of Jews in Palestine would start as soon as Rommel would arrive there.

The authors, Barry Rubin and Wolfgang Schwanitz, came up with new archive material that inspired them to formulate very provocative and highly problematic theses. They make astonishing and weird claims: For them, Al-Husaini was the supposed architect of the “Final Solution”. They argue that the mufti had such great influence that he might have well authored the mass murder of Jews of Europe. That the mufti was the string-puller behind Hitler is outlandish.

They want to show that “eliminationist anti-Semitism” drives the Islamic Middle East, and that Al-Husaini was worst than Hitler. Consequently its influence on Islamist movements is also exaggerated, such as the Muslim Brotherhood. “When Islamism revived in the 1970s, its ideology bore the mark of al-Husaini and the other wartime collaborators, especially the Muslim Brotherhood.” The authors show the apparent great influence of German Nazis in almost all Arab countries. A political alliance between the Third Reich, Arab nationalists and Muslim religious authorities was forged that have survived until today. In contrast, the authors waste no words to the close cooperation between Fascism and Zionism.

According to the authors, Israel came only into being because the mufti rejected the White Papers and opposed the U.N partition plan of 1947. Rubin and Schwanitz should know better that the establishment of the State of Israel was due to the successful diplomatic lobbying of the then Zionist leadership and the interest of the imperial powers.

After having read the book, one gets the impression that the authors want to pursue a political agenda by establishing a close connection between the Nazi ideology and Islamist thinking. Some quoted material his heavily biased towards Islam. This is not surprising since Schwanitz is an associate fellow of the Middle East Forum, headed by the notorious Daniel Pipes.

Whether this politically motivated and distorted historical retrospect contributes anything substantial to the understanding of the present Middle East, must be provided with a big question mark.
