    I've interviewed a large number of Arabs of the years and the overwhelming (and depressing) consensus has been that most (!) openly felt that if they could they'd like to have (and not just) the middle east free of all jews. The genocidal impulse was clear and often shared among the generations. The most substantive complaint I've encountered about the Shoah was that it was incomplete. The corruption of their countries and the problems of their daily lives seemed--- quite in contrast to what we'd expect-- of less concern then the dream of a world without Jews.. The hate runs deep and most believe old.. some consider it dating to days of Muhammad.. On the one side National Socialists and on the other Islamists united in their will for a "final solution" to what they see as the "Jewish problem".
