Ahmad al-Shuqairy, ash-Shuqayri, Shukeiri, Shukeiry , Shukairi, Shukairy:
* At WW2, he and his friends used to pray for Hitler’s victories and for the defeat of Britain. (His own admission).
* Escaped in the 1940’s with his associate Al-husseini, mufti of Jerusalem, Hitler’s ally.
* He “had suggested that Palestinian and Libya’s ulama’ invite Mussolini to adopt a policy of non-cooperation with zionists and to treat them as the nazis were doing.” (Arab source)
* Was a Nazis apologist.
* In the 1930s was active in ex-Mufti’s extremist gang, first joining the Russians, sabotage the allies’ efforts against the Nazis. Then after Stalin began fighting the Nazis, the gang left the Russians, switching over to Hitler’s side, to support Hitler’s anti Jewish war.
* In 1946, after having joined the Arab Higher Committee, he restituted Nazi Goebbele’s ideas.
* 1946: Before the partition and almost 2 years before the modern State of Israel was established, he spoke about “race.” About a decade later he said Jews are not a race nor a nation.
* End of 1940s, “compared Israel’s economic planning for Jerusalem with Hitler’s planning for a Nazi ruled Europe”.
* In 1952 compared plight of living Arab refugees to millions perished in WW2.
* October, 1960 compared Israel to nazis, adopting holocaust denier’ Issa Nakhleh’s epithets (who initiated vilifying falsely racialized lingo in June 17, 1949).
* Invented the “apartheid” slur in Oct. 1961 at his UN diatribe (UN’s 16th session). He also -at the same speech- objected to Eichmann being tried in Israel. It was on October 17, 1961.
Almost 6 years before the six-day war which some call it an “occupation”. Some 41 years before the security barrier anti terror defense erected in Israel. He used the then momentum in U.N. against South Africa. So he just compared it to S.A. So he just compared it to S.A. That meme he uttered after already branding Israel with Nazi label, then he “dropped” “levels down.” At the same speech of “apartheid” comparison, he objected to Eichmann being tried in Israel. Then again later on he jumped up levels and said: “nastier than Fascism, uglier than Nazism.” (Which its roots are in Holocaust-denier Issa Nakhleh’s wording in June-17-1949, who by Nov-14-1972 said Hitler did “not” kill Jews).
That and much like this, is of his legacy of wild labels-slapping, since enshrined in PLO charter.
* In Dec. 6, 1961, he denied there was any anti Semitism in the world claiming zionists “created” it. At the time he also questioned a Catholic member’s loyalty stating he’s Jewish. He also argued he’s not Anti Semite because he’s Semitic himself…
* In Nov. 30, 1962 praised, saluted infamous nazi gang Tacuara (while he cited that the New York Times recently wrote about this nationalist movement, it clearly stated in that Sep-16-1962 headline that it was nazi), some 5 months after (on 21 June 1962) they brutally attacked, carved swastikas on a 19 year old student as a “revenge” for eliminating Eichmann. He was fired by Saudi Arabia from UN post shortly after, over this. Apparently this was too much even for them to handle.
* Dec.1962: Just before being fired from UN over saluting Nazi gang, he led an attack to pin Nazism label on Zionism.
* In 1967: vowed to lead the vanguard of his troops into the Israeli sector of Jerusalem and set up a “purely Arab government” there for all of Palestine.
* Called to annihilate Jews in Israel, 1967: ‘a war of extermination in which not a man, woman, or child should be spared,’ observing: “none of them will survive.” (After Arabs’ defeated war, he complained why he is singled out since this was Arab outlook as a whole).

Yup. These folks are as bad as we claim.
The “Apartheid” slur is particularly horrible because many of the people who put together the Apartheid system such as Dr. Hendrik Verwoerd had themselves openly supported the Nazis during WW2. It is a chilul HaShem that the State of Israel at times helped the Apartheid regime, often over the objections of the South African Jewish community. For many years the only member of the South African parliament who opposed Apartheid was Helen Suzman, elected repeatedly from the Jewish area of Johannesburg.
(Even more sad is that under the venal corrupt leadership of the African National Congress, South Africa is heading rapidly towards failed state status. 🙁 )September 13, 2020 8:50 am at 8:50 am #1900891
Dear Charliehal. You mean economics, no ideological support… forced because of isolation stemming from the goliath sea of Arab Islamic neighbors boycotting the “other” in their midst. The non-Arab, non-Muslim entity. Now that is the GOLIATH APARTHEID.
Any wonder neo nazis and Iran/Hezbollsh/Hamas/Erduan can’t stand that the Arab Apartheid wall has been a bit weakened by the current UAE/Bahrain deals.September 14, 2020 10:48 pm at 10:48 pm #1901640
Here’s more on his extremism, back in 1946:
SHUKAIRY IN 1946:
1. ONLY RUSSIA SHOULD DEAL WITH PALESTINE CASE.
2. WESTETN DEMOCRACY FAILED.
3. <b>WILL NOT SIT WITH THE JEWS FOR DISCUSSION</b>.
4. PARTITION, OUT OF THE QUESTION. THREATENS ACTIONS IF INSISTED
From: Menahem Mansoor, “Political and Diplomatic History of the Arab World, 1900-1967: 1942-52”. ,(NCR Microcard Editions, 1972) p.1
August, 1946 August 8
Ahmad Shukairy, Director of the Arab Office in Jerusalem, declared that ” the Arab World is looking eagerly for the stand Moscow will take” on the Palestine problem, and he saw no reason why “America should be a party to the Palestine case and not Russia.”
From: La Grande Observer, La Grande, Oregon. Thursday, August 8, 1946. Page 5
Arabs Seek Russian Aid in Preventing Holy Land Split Delegation May Be Sent to Moscow in Effort to Enlist Help Against British
JERUSALEM, Aug. 8 (UP) Ahmad Shukairy. head of the Arab office, discussed today that unofficial contacts have been made with Moscow with view to obtaining Soviet support for Palestine Arabs in opposing Britain’s proposed partition of the Holy Land.
Shukairy said that it was possible that an Arab delegation would be sent Moscow even before the Palestine issue is raised before the United Nations general assembly now scheduled to meet Sept. 23 in New York City. “We are already somewhat late in doing this,” he said, but added that unofficial, contacts with the Soviet had- been made and that official contacts, will follow.
British Plan Hit
Shukairy emphasized that Arabs oppose in strongest fashion the British-plan to split Palestine into separate Arab and Jewish provinces under British control. He predicted that the Arab states will not participate in the discussions Britain- has scheduled so long as partition is on the agenda.
He also reemphasized that <b>Arabs would hot participate in any round-table discussion with the Jews</b>. Arab States which already have accepted invitations to the London conference, he said, did so before they knew that Britain had the partition plan in mind…
He said that <b>western democracy and democratic principles had failed in Palestine</b>.
Russia Face Test
“Palestine now provides an acid test for the Soviet regime,” he said, “whether it will project its philosophy toward assisting the Arabs.” If Britain insists on proceeding with its partition plan, he said thaf Palestine “which is on the verge of struggle will fight.”</blockqote>
