The roots of the Muslim Brotherhood and, in many ways, the Nazi-Muslim axis go back to the organisation's formation in Egypt in 1928. Marking the start of modern political "Islamic fundamentalism," the Brotherhood from the outset envisioned a time when an Islamic state would prevail in Egypt and other Arab countries. The growth of the Muslim Brotherhood coincided with the rise of fascist movements in Europe - a parallel noted by Muhammad Sa'id al-'Ashmawy, former chief justice of Egypt's High Criminal Court, who decried "the perversion of Islam" and "the fascistic ideology" that infuses the world view of the Brothers.
Youssef Nada, current board chairman of Al Taqwa, had joined the armed branch of the Muslim Brotherhood as a young man in Egypt during World War II. Nada and several of his cohorts in the Sunni Muslim fraternity were recruited by German military intelligence. Hassan al-Banna, the Egyptian schoolteacher who founded the Muslim Brotherhood, also collaborated with spies of the Third Reich.
Advocating a pan-Islamic insurgency in British-controlled Palestine, the Brotherhood proclaimed their support for the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, in the late 1930s. The Grand Mufti, the preeminent religious figure among Palestinian Muslims, was the most notable Arab leader to seek an alliance with Nazi Germany.
Although he loathed Arabs (he once described them as "lacquered half-apes who ought to be whipped"), Hitler understood that he and the Mufti shared the same rivals - the British, the Jews and the Communists. They met in Berlin, where the Mufti lived in exile during the war. The Mufti agreed to help organise a special Muslim division of the Waffen SS. Powerful radio transmitters were put at the Mufti's disposal so that his pro-Axis propaganda could be heard throughout the Arab world.

In 1937, the Arabs almost immediately rejected the [Peel Plan for the partition of Palestine] and a pan-Arab conference in Syria in September resolved that every Arab had a sacred duty to preserve Palestine as an Arab country.

Al Qaeda is nothing more than the religious expression of Arab Fascism

I disagree with this particular wording. Americans tend to conflate Arab and Muslim. Not all Arabs are Muslims, although this is increasingly true as Christian Arabs flee the Middle East.

True Arab Fascism exists. It's known as the Baath Party and various offshoots. It's national socialism, with the "nation" in question being "the Arab nation." Some of its founders and major supporters thru the years have been Christian Arabs. It's all Arabs against other nations. It is by nature secular, although when it gets in trouble it's perfectly willing to haul in Islam for cover, just as the atheist Stalin was willing to angle for support during WWII by allowing greater freedom to the Church.

Al Qaeda, OTOH, is Muslim Fascism. It's all (true) Muslims against all infidels and backsliding Muslims.

The relation between Baathism (Arab Fascism) and Al Qaeda (Muslim Fascism) is thus quite remarkably similar to that between Nazism (national socialism for the German people) and Communism (international socialism where the entire proletariat throughout the world lines up against its exploiters).

Of course I agree and FEEL for persecuted Arab Christians... my point is that MUSLIM Arabs have sharpened their Arab supremacy.
