'Palestinian mufti convinced Hitler to massacre Europe's Jews,' Netanyahu says

Social media was abuzz on Wednesday following claims made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that suggested Hitler initially had no intention of massacring European Jewry.
In a speech to delegates at the 37th World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem on Tuesday, the premier claimed that Hitler's original intentions were solely to expel the Jews.
According to Netanyahu, the Fuhrer changed his mind at the insistence of the Palestinian Arab leader at the time, Haj Amin al-Husseini, who argued that the expulsion of the Jews would lead them to come to Palestine, which at the time was under British Mandatory rule.
