In this hugely important book Barry Rubin and Wolfgang G. Schwanitz show that not only did Nazism enjoy widespread popularity in the contemporary Middle East, but its profound effects on pan-Arabist and Islamist thinking, as well as the evolution of Palestinian Arab nationalism, continue to reverberate throughout the region to date.

Schwanitz and the prolific Israeli Middle East expert Barry Rubin, who died prematurely in For them, the ongoing influence of the Nazi period on the Middle East of today is an established fact. However, what distinguishes Nazis, Islamists, and the Making of the Modern Middle East from other books on this topic is the long historical period examined by the authors, ranging from the early days of the German Empire to the present time.

Wolfgang G. Schwanitz is a German-American Middle East historian. He is a specialist in comparative studies of modern international relations between the United States, the Middle East, and Europe. Born in 1955 in Magdeburg, Schwanitz lived for seven years in Cairo, Egypt, as his parents were diplomats.

The years between Germany’s defeat in the Great War ending in 1918 and the day the Nazis took power in Berlin a mere fifteen years later saw enormous changes in the Middle East.

During the 1930s and 1940s, a unique and lasting political alliance was forged among Third Reich leaders, Arab nationalists, and Muslim religious authorities. From this relationship sprang a series of dramatic events that, despite their profound impact on the course of World War II, remained secret until now. In this groundbreaking book, esteemed Middle East scholars Barry Rubin and Wolfgang G. Schwanitz uncover for the first time the complete story of this dangerous alliance and explore its continuing impact on Arab politics in the twenty-first century.

In addition, they expose the extent of Germany’s long-term promotion of Islamism and jihad. Drawing on unprecedented research in European, American, and Middle East archives, many recently opened and never before written about, the authors offer new insight on the intertwined development of Nazism and Islamism and its impact on the modern Middle East.

This is not a real page turner but appears to be a very complete account this little know bit of history. The documentation seems to be thorough. My biggest complaint is that the writing style is more than a little dry and tedious at times. This is not a read for entertainment but for someone who want more background on the subject. I'm mostly convinced that the chronology of events is accurate.

I'm not convinced of the conclusion of significant causality between the Third Reich and the Grand Mufti. I doubt the Holocaust would have been less severe without the Grand Mufti's help nor that the middle east would be much safer today if the Third Reich had not supported the Grand Mufti. Both were capable raining misery on the world without the others help.

I will grant that there was one missed opportunity. The Grand Mufti was a criminal and should have been tried and hanged. He got a pass from the Allies on this account since it seemed the safer, wiser course at the time. That was most likely a mistake.

If one wants to know what is really behind the Israeli - Arab conflict, this book is a goldmine! The Arabs seem eager to finish what the nazis began, and we can see this on a daily basis. The only difference is that today Israel can defend itself. If only Israel had existed during Hitler's years...

Magnificent analysis and discussion of history that has been neglected or purposely hidden. This is a factual account that does much to expose revisionism or pure censorship. There is an excellent analysis to the 1930 efforts (mostly by the British) to gain Muslim support in the coming war. Everything was offered - even in violation of the Balfour Declaration and League of Nations directives - to Muslim states and so much was offered that the existing states agreed but Haj Amin al-Huseini would not agree and many Muslims sided with Hitler. There is a direct line between the history of the 20th century concerning the Middle East and current efforts to force some sort of "peaceful agreement". This book sheds light but, sadly, there are many who prefer the darkness.

Fascinating history of the alliances between Nazis and Islamists

An extremely informative and very topical book tying together the shameful alliance between Nazis and Islamists. Although many facts were known previously, some have never before been widely publicized. Absolutely essential to understanding not only contemporary events in the Middle East, but also still prevailing attitudes in the Islamic world and even very actual German-Turkish relations. Highly recommended for anybody interested in knowing how today's Middle East developments still strongly reflect events going back one hundred years in history. And the sad conclusion is that leaders of Western democracies still have not learned from history.
the part we weren't taught in scholl about WWII. The co-conspirators in the Holocaust were the Muslim leadership of the day. The mufti of Jerusalem , Ali al-Huasani, should have been captured and held accountable. Instead they were allowed to remain in power and their ideology festered over the decades and long story IT IS NOW resposible for the Islam criminal conspiracy we have today.
