Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose. The Jordanian Health Minister gives us a rare glimpse of the truth: the Arab world has not shaken off Hitler’s antisemitic legacy in this TV interview recorded by MEMRI (with thanks: Lily):
Dr. Zaid Hamzeh, who served as Jordan’s Health Minister, commented during a recent interview on A One TV that he and the rest of the Arab world backed Adolf Hitler during World War II because of the brutal dictator’s sentiments regarding the Jews.
According to Hamzeh, “We supported Hitler, because he hated the Jews, and we have been mad at the Jews ever since those days.”
Hamzeh added, “We laud dictator[s] and wish [they] would come back. We want [them] to come riding in on a white horse and to liberate the land, while the people here are in a slumber or watching from the sideline.”
