Egyptian researched Mohamed Gad El-Zoghby was asked in a Feb. 9 interview on Safa TV (Saudi Arabia/Egypt) who was worse: Adolf Hitler or Imam Khomeini? He answered: “Objectively speaking, Hitler wins. But as far as we’re concerned, we should erect a statue of Hitler for what he did to the Jews.”

El-Zoghby accused Imam Khomeini of collaborating with the Jews and praised Hitler for supporting the Arab cause in Palestine.

A researcher and a poet, he has a master’s degree in Shari’a and law from Ain Shams University. For more from Mohamed Gad El-Zoghby, see MEMRI TV Clip No. 6744.

Interviewer: Who was worse, ideologically and in practice, Hitler or Khomeini?

Mohamed Gad El-Zoghby: Objectively, or just as far as we are concerned? Objectively speaking, Hitler wins. But as far as we’re concerned, we should erect a statue of Hitler for what he did to the Jews. Khomeini allied himself with the Jews, whereas Hitler was their enemy and fought them. In addition, Hitler met with the Mufti of Jerusalem, Amin Al-Husseini, and he completely supported the Arab cause in Palestine. We must never forget this.
