Jihad and Anti-Semitism

It's no secret that that Islamofascists aren't too fond of Jews (well, no secret to anyone outside of Christiane Amanpour and CNN). What is little discussed, however, is how far back this fusion of ideas goes. There is a fascinating piece in the Weekly Standard which outlines how Hitler himself came up with the idea of flying planes into Manhattan skyscrapers back in the waning days of the Second World War: http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/014/080ruyhg.asp. It's also been established that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was a longtime admirer of Hitler and his plan to erase Jews from the face of the earth. Yet, as the Weekly Standard piece points out, the 9/11 Commission Report essentially ignores this whole aspect of Jihad. You can't help but wonder why.................
