Muslims Saved Jews From Rape and Death During World War Two

Muslims Saved Jews From Nazis

Some Islamophobes try to portray Muslims as Nazis; this is far from the case. In fact there are a number of heart-warming stories of Muslims coming to the aid of Jews during Nazi occupations. Sadly, these stories are buried under right-wing (anti-Muslim) propaganda.

Recently I received a link to a CNN report of Albanian Muslims supporting the Jews against the Nazis; I was unaware of such Muslim heroism in Albania, I was aware of Muslims in North Africa coming to the aid of Jews during the second World War – hence I did some digging around and came across Robert Slatoff’s work. He describes the story of a mayor in Tunisia giving refuge to sixty (60) Jewish escapees (from slave labour camps) and thus saving them from Nazi design. Saltoff also tells the story of Khaled Abdul-Wahhaab, who saved a Jewish girl from Nazi rape.

New exhibition tells of how Albanian Muslims risked their lives to save Jewish people – the rabbi states the Albanian Muslims did this out of religious obligation – food for thought for the Islamophobes who want to demonise Muslims



With rising anti-Muslim sentiment across the country, an untold story is raising greater awareness about the Muslim faith and the teachings of the Quran. That awareness comes from an unlikely source: a small Jewish congregation in Creve Coeur.


Temple Emanuel is premiering a groundbreaking exhibit of photos that reveals Albanian Muslims who saved 2,000 Jews during World War II. It's a story you've likely never heard. It is a story told through the faces of Albanian Muslims who risked their own lives to live by a code of faith and honor called Besa.

Author and Middle East policy expert Robert Satloff duscusses several stories of assistance North African Arabs offered to Jews during the Holocaust.

Robert Satloff talks about "Among the Righteous."

Satloff revisits the Holocaust to document the role that Arabs played in saving Jews, as a way of helping to bridge the divide among Arabs and Jews. Satloff, director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, calls his book "part history, part travelogue, part memoir" - Politics & Prose

Mesage frm Sam to u

Hey folks, we have another foul mouthed dog named DrXoz barking over the fact that Christian apologists such as myself are completely humiliating and exposing Muslim liars and deceivers like Sami Zaatari and Yahya Snow, the coward who hides behind his blog but doesn't have the guts to debate his trash so that all could see what would happen to him for producing such garbage which he calls rebuttals! Sami, Yahya, and JibreelK, the cowardly convert, make a great comedy team. They are better than the 3 stooges!

Sam must have been writing from a mental asylum.

If Shamoun really wrote that, the fat hate monger just showed how he's filled with double standards because:

- Sami Zaatari has been waiting 3 years for Shamoun to come forward and debate on Prophet Muhammad, yet the missionary could not accept. See here:

http://muslim-responses.com/Debate_Challenge_to_Shamoun/Debate_Challenge_on_Shamoun_


- Not too long ago, Sami challenged Shamoun again:

http://muslim-responses.com/Shamoun_Inconsistency/Shamoun_Inconsistency_

But now silly shamoun wants to create an image as if he's been challenging and no-one's accepting. Truly a hypocrite. Don't worry: hellfire is ready for animals like him

Yahya Snow said...

@anonymous,

Brother, don't let Shamoun wind you up. He is a wind up merchant who seeks to provoke reaction.

I can tell you Shamoun did write such a message as it is on his YT page.

Shamoun only speaks in this fashion to hold onto the fanatical Christians who follow him. I beileve it was Mr Gilchrist who denounced Sam Shamoun as an individual who represents fanaticals.

Shomoun likes to believe Yusuf Estes and Dr Naik are all running from him...the fact remains, I would be surprised if either have heard of Sam Shamoun.

Sam, if you are reading this; I invite you to Islam. Would you like a relationship with God? Yes/no? If yes, then please come to Islam.

Did anyone notice that Shamoun looks like the Scientology character Xenu?

The Fat Man said...

This is great, and these individuals should be praised and held up just like the profiter\Hedonist Oscar Shindler, and the Christian Correy Tananbaum and her sister. Also just like Bonhaufer the German Theologian that stood up to the third Reich. As well as the entire population of Denmark, don't forget about the Italians either. Yes there were silent hero's in WW2. Acts of bravery and courage we will never hear about. But it is good to see it when it happens.

Now Yahya Snow if you really want to impress us KUFFAR, come up with a blog post that condemns the 13th Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Handschar.

This was a division of SS recruited by the Grand Mufti of Jereslum Hajj Amin al-Husseini. "Who according to the Encyclopedia of the Holocaust (Edition 1990, Volume 2, Pages 706 and 707), made a substantial contribution to the Axis war effort by organizing "in record time" recruitment to Muslim SS units in Croatia that would be involved in some of the worse atrocities of the Second World War."

Now let the Denials begin!!! lol

Oh Ibn feel free to correct my spelling, seems the only thing you are good at.

Yahya Snow said...

OK, "fatman"...I refuse to call you "fatman".Previously, I suggested that you should change your name...seen as you are unwilling to do so...I will do so for you. I guess, this Muslim (me) cares about you more than your regular pals who allow you to traverse the internet under a barrage of insult.

From henceforth you shall be known as "Jeff". Don't worry Jeff, this is nothing like Abram turning into Abraham...I'm simply trying to HELP you.

I say:

Jeff, are you for real? PREVENTING RAPE AND MURDER of Jews is not impressive? Jeff, you have been playing too many violent video games; you have been desensitized!

When I commenced my private preaching to you, did I not say to you (parpaphrased); you will become a better person WITH Islam...food for thought

Jeff, think about it...

Peace

Yahya Snow said...

Jeff,

(Numbers 31:7-18 NLT)



They attacked Midian just as the LORD had commanded Moses, and they killed all the men. All five of the Midianite kings – Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba – died in the battle. They also killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword. Then the Israelite army captured the Midianite women and children and seized their cattle and flocks and all their wealth as plunder. They burned all the towns and villages where the Midianites had lived. After they had gathered the plunder and captives, both people and animals, they brought them all to Moses and Eleazar the priest, and to the whole community of Israel, which was camped on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho.



Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the people went to meet them outside the camp. But Moses was furious with all the military commanders who had returned from the battle. "Why have you let all the women live?" he demanded. "These are the very ones who followed Balaam's advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the LORD at Mount Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD's people. Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.

(Deuteronomy 20:10-14)



As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.

If you want to impress Fatman food, give him food and a fire hydrant.

Yahya Snow said...

Ahh, Jeff...is this why you are not impressed by the Muslim who SAVED the Jewish lady from rape at the hands of Nazis:

(Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT)

If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.


Jeff maybe this passage was inyour mind (I'm not saying rape took place in this situation):

As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you. (Deuteronomy 20:10-14)


As you may have guessed, Jeff, I am a little tired of your witty rhetorts and condescending ways. I have told you Islam will help you become a better person...perhaps then you will be impressed by the acts of heroism the MUSLIMS carried out during the second World War (some of which have been described in this blog post). I am calling for respect and upright behaviour, Jeff.

God willing I will repy to your email soon. I just hope these comments have helped concentrate your mind.

Peace and LOVE

I just googled this xenu character

No comment from me

The Fat Man said...

Yahya Snow please change your nick since you wont I will now call you Wilbur.

Funny the only people who insult me with the nick are MUSLIMS. Thats one of the reason I use it because it draws the Islam out of the Muslim like poison from a wound.

So Wilbur did you read my post, I did praise these individuals they were very brave as well as the others who risked there lives not only to save Jews but to stand up to Nazi oppression.

Another example is the wives of Jewish men who showed up out side the Reichstag to protest for the release of there German Jewish Husbands.

The Nazi Regime closed all the public air raid shelters around the Reichstag to force the woman to either leave or be killed during the allied bombing.

But the woman held their ground and kept returning day and night.

The Regime finally backed down and released their husbands. It was the one and ONLY time the Regime backed down.

Another case was a Catholic priest who ran a orphanage for the mentally and physically disabled. He rode the train with them and when they got to the extermination camp, he was told "You don't have to go".

He responded "I know but if I don't go the children will be frightened."

The Italians never met their quota, they fudged the numbers, oh and not to mention the underground rail road that the catholic church ran.

It is rumored that the King of the Danes after the Nazi's occupied his country and ordered Jews to where the star of David (Zunnar) he proudly road down the street wearing the star of David. Prompting quite a few Danes to do the same.

There are countless stories of untold bravery, most we will never hear. But it is inspirational when we do hear them. Like the Muslims who did their duty to Humanity. They should be praised and held up as a standard.

However if you hold these people up as examples but do not CONDEMN those that they fought against in their acts of defiance. You dishonor them you do not HONOR THEM.

So Wilbur HONER THESE BRAVE MUSLIMS BY CONDEMNING THE Grand Mufti of Jereslum Hajj Amin al-Husseini. Who was a personal guest of the Adulf Hitler, who personaly recruited and inspected a division or two into the Waffen SS.

These brave Muslims stood up against this, why can't you?

If you can not condemn the Grand Mufti or the 20,000 Muslims who served in the WAFFEN SS then you do not honor these brave people. Instead you dishonor them and disgrace there memory and legacy.

Fat: HONER THESE BRAVE MUSLIMS

What's a honer?

Anonymous said...

Fatman's not a very educated person, is he? Islamophobia seems to attract the uneducated most.

Yahya Snow said...

Jeff,

I changed your name becuase you are insulting yourself. The sad thing is your right-wing "Christian" pals allow you to parade around the net under such a fashion that leaves you open to ridicule...yet this Muslim (me) is TRYING to help you but you are being unresponsive and even an ingrate...sad, but true:(

I will continue to help you as this may help your realise Islam is the Truth.

As for Muslims who sided with the nazis...of COURSE supporting the nazi ABUSE OF jEWS IS DENOUNCED!

If you were accurate with your history you would sum it up as each group picked their side and thus you have to speak from such a context. Further research on the issue of the mufti is required. Perhaps I will post on it in the future.

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

Peace

Take care Jeff, if you need to talk in private...feel free to email me. Muslims are here to help you...whoever you maybe.

The Fat Man said...

Wilbur

Grand Mufti of Jereslum Hajj Amin al-Husseini?

The Fat Man said...

Wilbur one more thing. The nick Fatman to me is not a insult.

Actually it is a nick of respect. Its old american slang for BOSS.

"Go ask the Fatman... Did you get permission from the FATMAN....

So you Muslims may think it's a insult and continue to insult me. I think it's funny.

I find it interisting WILBUR you claim that Islam will make me a better person. Yet the only people to use the nick Fatman as a insult are Muslims. SO I guess insulting others is a good character trait.

Yahya Snow said...

Jeff,

READ my previous comment.

Come on Jeff...think about it.

BTW, Jeff...I think you realise I am not going to allow you to ride rough shot in any comment section. I am going to start opening up the Bible and challenging you to THINK.

I have noticed you just spout a set rhetoric...without cognitive thought.

That must change...if you want the Trtuth...that must change.

PS...ponder upon the fact that I changed your username in an effort to elevate your level of standing.
Your pals failed to do so...do you think Jesus would encourage you to traverse the net with such a username?

Food for though...I told you I will challenge you. Muslims need to challenge Christians to think further, beyond their comfort levels and outside their realms of Trinitarianism.

God willing, these Christians who have been sparked into further thought and reflection will be guided by God to the Truth of Islam

PS, Jeff, my name is Yahya Snow. It is a respectable name...feel free to use it. YOUR name is not an edifying name, thus I chose "Jeff" for you. Feel free to adopt the name Jeff. If you become Muslim, I would suggest you change it to Isa (Jesus)

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

Peace

Yahya Snow said...

@Jeff,

DON@T you dare try to justify your name as some sort of synonym for "boss man".

I recall (on AM's blog) addressing you and whilst addressing you I expressed my reluctance to call you by the said name (Fatman) and you did NOT come out with this tenuous "boss man" explanation

I told you I am not going to allow you go unchecked :)


"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

The Fat Man said...

WILBUR WILBUR WILBUR

Sir it is a term of respect in american slang. Its old like 1930's to 50's. But it is a term for Boss. The Boss is the Fatman. That is who you ask for permision.

So your nick is Yahya Snow. Well my nick is FATMAN. Respect me sir and I will respect you. Until then WILBUR you will be WILBUR

The Fat Man said...

Wilbur

yes I do know the truth,

Jesus said "I AM THE TRUTH"

YFC777 said...

The Albanian Muslims did a truly great thing. This is a great video that Muslims leaders need to learn from.

Yahya Snow, while this is a good post promoting peace you cannot deny the role of the grand mufti of Jerusalem in conspiring with Hitler against the Jews.

Ali said...

i'll tell fatman and others a few facts.
i was reading national geographic and it spoke of the palistinian-jewish conflict. there was a very nice timeline that they made. from the mid 1920's, hundreds of thousands of jews had already immigrated to palistine. they brought their own laws and practices as well which angered the palistinians. by 1930 there were protests to get the jews out (BUT there were no jewish people hurt). unfortunately the government didn't really see the jewish wave of immigrants as a problem. less than 20 years later, israeli forces forced 1 million palistinians to move out of their homes into the crowded area's of east palistine. eventually many palistinians moved to near by syria, jordan and egypt.

if we see today, israel continue to expand their borders. and the bible says since israel is the "promised" land, zionists (both jewish and christian) are allowed to do whatever it takes to get rid of the palistinians. even bomb schools, mosques and take children as prisoners.

Ali-

Please do not rely on National Geographic when it comes to the Middle East conflict. They give a muddled point of view of what actually took place. I used to be a huge fan of National Geographic until I bought one of their books last year that entailed the 1000 most important events that shaped modern day. I know you mean well, but you should be warned about their approach on history and science.
