    You are completely right. It was part of the endeavour of Nazi Germany to transfer its ideology of hate and destruction to the ME. For this purpose they installed what was at the time the world’s most powerful short-wave radio transmitter in a town called Zeesen, located to the South of Berlin. Between April 1939 and April 1945, Radio Zeesen reached out to the illiterate Muslim masses through daily Arabic programmes, mainly in public squares, bazaars or coffee houses. No other station was more popular than this Zeesen Nazi service, which skilfully mingled anti-Semitic propaganda with quotations from the Koran and Arabic music. Since 1941, the programme had been directed by the Mufti of Jerusalem from to Berlin. If we look at the Hamas charter for instance, we can still see the devastating role of the ideology from Nazi Germany in the ME of today.
