Erwin Rommel was almost as popular as Hitler. Some Arabs 
used "Heil Rommel" as a common greeting in Arab countries.  
After France's defeat by Nazi Germany in 1940, some Arabs 
were chanting against the French and British around the 
streets of Damascus: "No more Monsieur, no more Mister, 
Allah's in Heaven and Hitler's on earth."  Posters in Arabic 
stating "In heaven God is your ruler, on earth Hitler" were 
frequently displayed in shops in the towns of Syria.

    "We were racists. We admired the Nazis. We were immersed 
    in reading Nazi literature and books that were the 
    source of the Nazi spirit. We were the first who thought

Damascus at that time was witness to the Arab 
    inclination toward Nazism. Michel Aflaq a founder of the 
    Ba'athist philosophy admired Hitler and the Nazis for 
    standing up to Britain and America. This admiration 
    would combine aspects of Nazism into Ba'athism."

The two most noted Arab politicians who actively 
collaborated with the Nazis were Grand Mufti of Jerusalem 
(al Quds) Haj Amin al-Husseini,  and the Iraqi prime 
minister Rashid Ali al-Gaylani.

Adolf Hitler met with Haj Amin al-Husseini on 28 November 
1941. The official German notes of that meeting contain 
numerous references to combatting Jews both inside and 
outside Europe. The following excerpts from that meeting are 
statements from Hit ler to the Mufti:

    Germany stood for uncompromising war against the Jews. 
    That naturally included active opposition to the Jewish 
    national home in Palestine, which was nothing other than 
    a center, in the form of a state, for the exercise of 
    destructive influence by Jewish interests. ... This was 
    the decisive struggle; on the political plane, it 
    presented itself in the main as a conflict between 
    Germany and England, but ideologically it was a battle 
    between National Socialism and the Jews. It went without 
    saying that Germany would furnish positive and practical 
    aid to the Arabs involved in the same struggle...

Hitler had been much impressed  by a scrap of history he had 
learned from a delegation of distinguished Arabs." The 
delegation had speculated that the world would have become 
"Mohammedan" if the Berbers and Arabs had won the Battle of 
Tours in the 8th Century AD, and that the Germans would have 
become heirs to "a religion that believed in spreading the 
faith by the sword and in subjugating all nations to that 
faith. Such a creed was perfectly suited to the German 
temperament."  Speer then presents Hitler's claims on this 

Hitler said that the conquering Arabs, because of their 
racial inferiority, would in the long run have been unable 
to contend with the harsher climate of the country. They 
could not have kept down the more vigorous natives, so that 
ultimately not Arabs but Islamized Germans could have stood 
at the hea d of this Mohammedan Empire.

Similarly, Hitler was transcribed as saying: "Had Charles 
Martel not been victorious at Poitiers ... then we should in 
all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism, that 
cult which glorifies the heroism and which opens up the 
seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic 
races would have conquered the world."

According to Speer, Hitler stated in private, "The 
Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible 
to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity 
with its meekness and flabbiness?"

Hitler's views on the Arab world

This "exchange" occurred when Hitler received Saudi Arabian 
ruler Ibn Saud's special envoy, Khalid al-Hud al-Gargani. 
Earlier in this meeting Hitler noted that one of the three 
reasons why Nazi Germany had warm sympathies for the Arabs 

… because we were jointly fighting the Jews. This led him to 
discuss Palestine and the conditions there, and he then 
stated that he himself would not rest until the last Jew had  
left Germany. Kalid al Hud observed that the Prophet 
Mohammed … had acted the same way. He had driven the Jews 
out of Arabia.
