In 1948, after the United Nations voted to give Israel statehood, five Muslim armies (Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Lebanon and Iraq) immediately invaded Israel. The stated purpose of this invasion was to 'push the Jews into the sea', in other words, genocide. Assam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League, declared their intentions: 'This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre which will be spoken of like the Mongolian massacres and the Crusades. ‚ÄúWhat Hitler didn't finish three years earlier, the Arabs would finish once and for all.‚ÄĚ A Nazi collaborator, Hajj Amin al-Husseini, led the Arabs of the former British Mandate of Palestine. He was charged at the Nuremberg trials before escaping in 1946. Al-Husseini actively supported Hitler's aim to exterminate the Jews in World War II. The Jews prevailed with only WW I weapons against all these Muslim nations.
