<— Prev    |    Next —>

"From a guarded high-walled villa in Alexandria, Mohammad Amin al-Husayni (1895 - 1974), exiled fifty-three year-old Grand son of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem craftily directs the affairs of the 1,200,000 Palestinian Arabs."

"In the Mufti's web, the strands of potential organized resistance include two rival 'youth organizations', the al-Najjada and the Al-Futawa and the 'mobile elements' of the secret Muslim Brotherhood, which is a sort of Middle Eastern Ku Klux Klan. The precise figures of their strength are elusive, but combined they may comprise something like 50,000 men and boys."

"Mohammad Nimr al-Hawari (b. 1908), thirty-eight-year-old leader of the Najjada told me, 'We believe in force'."
