  • The Great Mosque of Paris that saved Jews during the Holocaust
    Focusing on the tale of Algerian-born Jewish
    singer Salim Halali, a new French film looks at the little-known, and
    hard to confirm, efforts of the rector of the Great Mosque of Paris to
    save Jews during World War II.

        Few people know that there was a muslim nazi SS division.

        Letting know that is for some people just like pouring some liquid shit behind a fan...

        Even if that >10% figure wasn't dubious, the presence of jews in the Waffen-SS wasn't official at all, as opposed to the muslim SS division which dedicated insignia carried a scimitar, a symbol of the Ottoman Empire, much admired by Mr. Hitler himself.

      • @Valerie2007 Was there as single major group not represented in the SS or Hitlers alliances?

        Lets see, Indians (Hindus), French, Russians, Spanish, Croats, etc etc etc.
        Doesn't really prove a lot does it

    • Coming from a cult that constantly calls for the eradication of Jew's, this means fuck all.
      Burn it to the ground and raise pig's on the site.

      • @Dave556 : Could you give me an example where muslims should kill all the jews.. Funny enough. For to be called muslim, a muslim have to believe in Torah / Talmud /Bible

    • Hmmmm, actions like that are to be celebrated whatever the circumstances but it shows the fanatical perversion of what it used to be that Islam has become today.

      I wonder what "type" of Islam was preached in that mosque at the time.

    • And what did the mufti of Jeruselem do? He sent Arab men and boys to fight in Hitlers SS. A little something the Arab Muslim don't want you to know

    • if muslims countries didn't protect the jews, there would be much less jewish population than now, however zionist jews not really pleased about that by their actions..

      when Spain kicked out the jews, ottoman empire the muslim accepted them into their country as ottoman citizens, some of the jewish bankers paid back the their thanks officially bankrupting the ottoman empires economy after 400 years later for their greedy huge profits

        i am sure you can do some more research and find more stuff on all of them...but its just proof that it wasnt just the Jerusalem Mufti who was a close friend.

        also jews served in hitlers SS army

      • @OnlyLiarsBlock In Numbers 34 of the Old Testament, the GOD of Abraham gave the Jews this land and its exact boundaries. This is nothing new. It's the muslims that have decided that the HOLY LAND is all theirs'. The Jews are more than willing to allow muslims and Christians to worship at their Holy Sites.

        if you continue to read the bible especially the new testament you will see how the jews disobeyed god and went against him and he took everything from them. the israeli govnt does not allow muslims and christians to worship in their holy sites freely. there have been cases of jews attacking and spitting on christians on their way to church...also palestinians are not allowed into israel to worship at the holy sites unless they have US Passport or are under the age of 10 or ove More..

      • @John Coleman it's simple , look at jews how they look like and you will understand that they have no relationship with that land , most of jews are polish,or eastern european , so what the fuck they are doing in Palestine ? 1st palestinians were jewish , and then after jesus christ most of them become christians , then after islam most of them become muslims , it's not the ppl who changed but just their faith ,that's why muslims allowed jews to come back to jerusalem after they were kicked ou More..

    • Then some iman found out about this story and had all the benevolent muslims beheaded. Remember, "THE GOOD SAMARITAN" parable is from Christianity.
