Andy cites: "However a group of prominent Zionist-revisionists, including Yitzhak Shamir, who later became prime minister of Israel, wrote a letter to Hitler.

Exactly what I said. You note the small group who thought they could "manage" Hitler, but you ignore people like the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who actively helped the Gestapo.


In November 1941, the Mufti met with Hitler, who told him the Jews were his foremost enemy.


In 1945, Yugoslavia sought to indict the Mufti as a war criminal for his role in recruiting 20,000 Muslim volunteers for the SS, who participated in the killing of Jews in Croatia and Hungary. He escaped from French detention in 1946, however, and continued his fight against the Jews from Cairo and later Beirut. He died in 1974.
