A report in 1947, by noted journalist Drew Pearson, in his syndicated 'Washington Merry-Go-Round' column provides some contrast with the mainstream media's failure to address Grand Mufti Haj Amin al Husseini's murderous record during this week's fuss over Benjamin Netanyahu's remarks.

While I think it legitimate to debate the extent of the Mufti's influence on Hitler, I'm still very grateful to Netanyahu for bring up the matter, as it serves as a useful reference to help understand the historical context of present events. The reaction of the MSM is hardly surprising, as people who live in dream worlds don't like wake up calls.

@JD, agreed - while the mainstream media gleefully attacked Netanyahu, the essence of what he said was correct. Wolfgang G. Schwanitz has defended Netanyahu's remarks: "Schwanitz faulted Netanyahu for misspeaking in his "attempt to be anecdotal," but said that the broader argument he was attempting to make during his remarks was correct." http://www.meforum.org/5581/schwanitz-interview The Mufti has been a shadowy figure - too often ignored so hopefully this attack on Netanyahu will help foster some new interest.
