Jämför med Stormuftins besök...

Ni som läst om Haj Amin al-Husseinis
Belsen 1943. Stormuftin reagerade
med entusiasm. Han ville bygga ett
Deltagarna i de amerikanska
imamernas studieresa till Auschwitz
idag verkar reagera totalt annorlunda.
Förintelseförnekare bryter ut i tårar
och erkänner sin totala okunnighet
om den historiska verkligheten.
Men samtidigt får man inte glömma
att det handlar om åtta välartade
exemplar av flera tusen imamer i USA...
A group of American Muslim leaders
made a first-of-its-kind visit to Nazi
concentration camps this week,
prompting tears from at least one of
Eight imams made a three-day trip
Dachau and Auschwitz this week,
co-sponsored by a German think
tank and the New Jersey-based
Center for Interreligious Under-
standing, and strongly supported
by the United States government.
The trip, as reported in the
Forward, was the brainchild of
law professor Marshall Breger, an
Orthodox Jew and former senior
official in the administrations of
Ronald Reagan and George H.W.
Breger said, “There is a view that
there is growing anti-Semitism in
the Muslim world, reinforced by
people like President [Mahmoud]
Ahmadinejad, that there is growing
Holocaust denial in the Muslim world.
In light of that, the idea was to offer
education to those who might not
have the kind of knowledge that
we’ve had about World War II
and the Jewish community, and
to do this in a public way.”
The imams prayed at Dachau,
with a concluding prayer by
Muzammil Siddiqi, imam of the
Islamic Society of Orange County,
California: “We pray to G-d that
this will not happen to the Jewish
people or to any people anymore.”
Suhaib Webb, an imam from Santa
Clara in the Bay Area, grew up in
a white Christian household in
Oklahoma and later converted
to Islam. Walking around Auschwitz
with tears in his eyes, he said,
“It was far worse than I imagined.”
“No Muslim in his right mind, female
or male, should deny the Holocaust,”
said Mohamed Magid, imam and
executive director of the All Dulles
Area Muslim Society.
“When you walk the walk of the
people who have been taken to
be gassed, to be killed, how can
a person deny physical evidence,
something that’s beyond doubt?”
Just a few days earlier, Iranian
President Mahmoud Ahmadinajad
reiterated his claim that the Jews
"made up" the "so-called Holocaust."
The delegation’s youngest member
was Yasir Qadhi, 35, dean of academics
at Al Maghrib Institute, in New Haven,
Conn. Qadhi has since recanted, both
vocally and in print, his Holocaust-
denial claims, explaining that he had
been ignorant and exposed to materials
such as the anti-Semitic “Protocols of
the Elders of Zion.”
“That’s why I was very happy to come
on this trip,” he said, “because I wanted
to see for myself how wrong I was.
Vilken är de muslimska opinions-
bildarnas sanna röst idag ?
De åtta välartade eller de tusen
islamistiska imamerna i ruffiga
källarmoskéer ?
Vilka är mest representativa för
USA:s muslimer: de åtta välartade
eller stora landsomfattande
islamistiska organisationer som
CAIR eller Muslimska Brödraskapet ?
