“Dr. Andrew Bostom is certainly fighting the good fight by illuminating one of the darkest intersections of modern Islamic and European history—what the Nazis gleaned about Muslim Jew-hatred from ex-Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin el-Husseini.”
—Johannes J.G. Jansen, Houtsma Professor for Contemporary Islamic Thought, Emeritus, Utrecht University, and author of The Dual Nature of Islamic Fundamentalism, and The Neglected Duty: The Creed of Sadat’s Assassins
“Andrew Bostom’s monograph is essential reading for anyone—from the interested citizen to the credentialed scholar to the Prime Minister of Israel—who still believes that Islamic Jew-hatred was outsourced from Nazi Germany. Basing his conclusions upon a wealth of canonical and modern materials and long familiarity with the subject, Bostom shows that Islamic Jew-hatred dates back to earliest times, is founded on the Koran, the Hadith and the Sira, and is far more likely to have influenced the Nazis than vice versa. In pursuing his theme, Bostom details the writings and activities of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin el-Husseini, who was Hitler’s confidant, adjunct and advisor, and was instrumental in the conversion to Islam of escaped Nazi propagandist, Johannes von Leers. El-Husseini was the principal conduit of ancestral Islamic Jew-hatred to the Nazis, and Bostom debunks the now common academic trope that this ‘Muslim Pope’ was the practitioner of a chimerical ‘Nazified Islam’”

“An enlightening follow-up to his three prodigious anthologies on jihad, Islamic antisemitism, and the Sharia’s challenge to freedom, Andrew Bostom’s monograph rivets on the Islamic ideology of the most important founding figure of the Palestinian Muslim movement, Hajj Amin el-Husseini. Bostom sheds incandescent light on el-Husseini’s conjoined animating ideologies of jihad, and Islamic Jew-hatred.”

The monograph is slated to be available as both an e-book, and printed soft cover edition by the end of this month (November, 2013)
