There has been a media frenzy since the breaking story about Bibi Netanyahu's so-called "misstep" in stating that Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem until 1948,was responsible for talking Hitler into exterminating the Jews rather than expel them, which would've let them flood into the Holy Land. Bibi's 'he said/he said' debacle released a storm of angst from Yad Vashem, the White House, mainstream media, and scores of left-wing Palestinian supporters and politically correct 'historians' who, in their ignorance, acted as if what Bibi said was totally off base.

The Mufti went to Berlin during the war into an elegant home that had been confiscated from German Jews. The Mufti collected a very large salary during the war years. He would take road trips to Auschwitz and the other death camps to inspect the gas chambers and ovens and give advice on their efficiency.
Coincidentally my new book The Masada Faktor has a connection to this breaking story. I researched all of this months ago for conceiving of the mystery in my new novel The Masada Faktor (Published 10 July 2015.)
The connection to my book of fiction is that the mystery of The Masada Faktor was conceived by Hitler and perpetrated seventy years after the end of World War II by a conspiracy that included Arabs influenced by the Mufti. In researching for development of the novel I learned the truth about Haj Amin al-Husseini.
Thank you Mr. Prime Minister for the great tie-in to The Masada Faktor.
