Hitler, The Muslim Brotherhood and 9/11 – hardcover
“Hitler, the Muslim brotherhood and 9/11,” the latest historic ﬁction from #1 New York Times bestselling author Mike Evans, follows the life of Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the founding father of the Palestinians.
A descendant of the prophet Muhammad, scion of an inﬂuential Jerusalem family, Husseini became head of the Hanaﬁ school of Muslim clerics and Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, a position previously held by his father and older brother. Husseini was remembered as a decisive, cunning, and ruthless anti-Semite throughout much of the twentieth century.
Initially concerned with Muslim religious devotion and the global reach of Arab inﬂuence, he turned to Palestinian nationalism after World War I. Possessed of a singular hatred for Jews, his decisions over the next ﬁve decades did more to create the modern Palestinian context than any single leader in the history of the region.
Through his kinsman, Yasser Arafat, and by means of his foundational work with the Muslim Brotherhood, Husseini continued to inﬂuence life in the Middle East long after his death. From the attacks of September 11 against the United States, to the current tension in Jerusalem and Gaza, Husseini’s views have had lasting and tragic consequences.
With vivid imagery and compelling detail, Hitler, the Muslim Brotherhood, and 9/11 takes readers into the past where they encounter the forces that shape the present and fuel the ongoing Arab-Israeli conﬂict.
