#1 I wonder if - a hundred years from now - history will rank the Mad Mullahs right up there with ol' Adolph Hitler. Just that Hitler was up front, and 'in your face', while the mullahs are hide behind piety and anti-Americanism.

#2 History records it:
Grand Mufti Hdj Amin Al-Hussaini (1895-1974) was a member of one of the most powerful clans in Palestine. Yassir Arafat was one of his distant relatives; other Hussainis (e.g. Faisal Al-Hussaini) still play a role in Palestinian and Jordanian politics. The Mufti was well received by Hitler and he supported German efforts to raise SS-Legions from the Islamic populations of the Balkans and USSR.
