This is a stunning book. I wish I had known more of this material years ago. -- Michael Novak, George Frederick Jewett Chair in Religion and Public Policy, American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research
From the Inside Flap
Was Pope Pius XII secretly in league with Adolf Hitler? No, says Rabbi David G. Dalinbut there was a cleric in league with Hitler: the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin al-Husseini. As Pope Pius XII worked to save Jews from the Nazis, the grand mufti became Hitlers staunch ally and a promoter of the Holocaust, with a legacy that feeds radical Islam today. In this shocking and thoroughly documented book, Rabbi Dalin explodes the myth of Hitlers pope and condemns the myth-makers for not only rewriting history, but for denying the testimony of Holocaust survivors, hijacking the Holocaust for unseemly political ends, and ignoring the real threat to the Jewish people. In The Myth of Hitlers Pope, youll learn: · The true history of Pope Pius XII and the Holocausthow the Catholic Church did more than any other religious body to save Jewish lives · The real history of the Church and the Nazisincluding the Nazi plan to kidnap the pope · The real agenda of the myth-makers: hijacking the Holocaust to attack the very idea of the papacyespecially the papacy of the late Pope John Paul IIas well as Christianity and traditional religion as a whole · Hitlers clericHajj Amin al-Husseini, who advised and assisted the Nazis in carrying out Hitlers Final Solution · How Pope Pius XII rescued Jewsand deserves to be called a "righteous gentile"while the grand mufti of Jerusalem called for their extermination Full of shocking and irrefutable detail, The Myth of Hitlers Pope is sure to generate controversy, and more important, to set the record straight. If you want the truth about Pope Pius XII, about the Catholic Church, the Jews, and the Holocaust, and about how the myth of Hitlers pope plays into the culture wars of our own timeand how the fact of Hitlers mufti is a vital source of radical Islam todayyou must begin here.

Though it secretly plotted to depose Hitler it took little public action. Pius never made a specific condemnation of the Holocaust. But only that.The Vatican remained neutral hoping for a negotiated peace with the Pope acting as a mediator. Dalin, as far as he goes, makes strong defense of Pius and makes a good critique of Cornwell's book Hitler's Pope which is a poorly researched journalistic smear. Should the Pope have made an effort to mobilize the German Church and try to organize partisan resistance and supported an overthrow of Hitler overtly.? This would have made him and the German Church open to severe retaliation, assassination of Pius and alienation of many Catholics who still supported the war effort. Pius would have made himself and his followers martyrs. But isn't this what Jesus did? Readers of literature defending the Pope never really address this and neither does Dalin.
I though it contained a very thought provoking insight into the Liberal Media and its roll in the contemporary Cultural War currently being fought for Western Civilization.
I must say I was very surprised to read the chapter dealing with 'Hitler's Mufti; Muslim Anti-Semitism and the Continueing War against the Jews'. It has certainly increased my understanding of the forces currently ingaged in the struggle to undermine our way of life. I would highly recommend this book for others to read, I am sure it will be a book I will repeatidly lend to others and I am equally sure it will be a book I will re-read many times and use to counter the comtempory liberal bias in our current society.
I am left with a feeling of gratitude for the author for his efforts in righting the terrible erroneous injustice done to both Pope Pius XII and the Church during this bleak period of world history.
