Forgotten by Museum Victoria. Palestinian leader Haj Amin al Husseini

An exhibition currently at Museum Victoria is entitled "Handing on the Key". It's about the supposed dispossession of the Palestinians.

While I have not yet been for a view, I understand that the Museum has produced a very slick brochure which containing a great deal of Palestinian mythology and propaganda (at taxpayer's expense).

There's no sign there of the century long history by Palestinian Arabs of bloodshed and hatred against the Jews of the region. Nothing about the attacks on Jews in the 1920's culminating in the Hebron Massacre of 1929 when 69 Jews were murdered, raped and run out of town, nor of the Arab riots of the 1930's, nor of the constant attacks and massacres of Jews of the 1940's, nor of the threat by the Arab League and invading armies in 1948, the fedayeen murderers in the 50s and 60s, the murderous terrorist attacks of the 70's and 80s, the intifadas and treachery of Arafat after the Oslo Accords.

In particular, there is nothing about Arab-Nazi collaboration in Germany's attempt to bring about a final solution to its Jewish problem headed by the Palestinian Mufti of Berlin. The Museum must believe that this extraordinary collaboration is also a taboo topic.
