When the British had enough of the Mufti (1936-1939), they went looking for him at the Temple Mount, but he had already fled to Iraq, dressed as a woman. In Iraq, he supported the pro-Nazi coup led by Rashid Ali Al-Gailani. When the coup failed, he fled again with an Italian passport to Mussolini’s Rome During World War II Al-Husseini was already settled in Belin, as an ally of the Third Reich. In 1941, after the successful invasion of Yugoslavia, Al- Husseini fostered the recruitment of Bosnian and Albanese Muslims for the SS Waffen, contributing to the formation of the SS Handschar 13th Waffen Mountain Division. This division became famous because of the particularly atrocious massacres they committed against the Yugoslav partisans. Al-Husseini was able to meet with Adolf Hitler (November 1941) and according to Professor Bernard Lewis, he tried to convince him to increase the extermination of Jews to the territories of France-Vichy and Fascist Italy, and also proposed that the Luftwaffe bombard Tel Aviv. Once the Nazis would conquer British Palestine, Amin Al-Husseini would build gas chambers in Emek Dotan to eliminate the remaining Jews from the British Mandate. During those years, he founded the Nazi radio station Radio Zezzen, in Arabic and Persian, an important influence for the Nazi-style anti-Semitism of today’s Islamists. In 1944 he activated a special force of the SS-Waffen (Operation ATLAS), with German intelligence and the Mufti himself, and on the night of Nov/5/1944, he sent a paratrooper commando integrated by the Palestinians Hassan Salameh and Abdul Latif and three German Templars that knew Israel. Their mission was to poison the water reservoirs and murder 250,000 Jews in Tel Aviv. The plan was uncovered by an astute Arab policeman of the Jericho area.
