    Oh, I see now. It wasn't the Nazis who decided to exterminate the Jews it was a Palestinian! Let's not consider that Dieter was up to be hung and desperate to spread the blame anywhere but on Germany's leaders. As if Eichmann and Himmler needed the Mufti for anything, much less planning mass murder. And why, may I ask, would he have traveled incognito to visit the gas chambers? Who would have recognized him, and why would he have cared? Incited Eichmann to "accelerate the extermination measures"? Ah yes, that Eichmann always dragging his feet when it came to killing Jews. But always his good pal the Mufti was there with a swift boot to the rear whenever Adolf was feeling sentimental. But wait, wasn't Rudolf Kastner, the Jewish Agency's envoy to Hungary, Eichmann's pal? Didn't they play chess and enjoy long chats together. Wasn't it Kastner who betrayed the Hungarian Jews? Didn't he admit to personally selecting Jews for transportation to the death camps? Oh my, things are complicated.
