Palestinian Professor Who Led Auschwitz Trip Caught Justifying Terror

Mohammed S. Dajani Daoudi is a palestinian professor, who became well known a few years ago when he took students from the palestinian territories to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Mohammed S. Dajani DaoudiMohammed S. Dajani Daoudi is an unlikely advocate for peace between Palestinians and Israelis. He trained as a guerrilla with the Palestine Liberation Organization, was banned from Israel for 25 years because of his prominent role in Yasir Arafat’s Fatah group, and still refers to Israelis as “my enemy.”

But Mr. Dajani, now the library director and a professor of American studies at Al-Quds University, in East Jerusalem, has become a prominent activist for tolerance.

In 2007, he founded Wasatia (“moderation” in Arabic), a group that promotes the Muslim tradition of compromise and nonviolence. His chosen path has already led him to a lonely stand opposing an academic boycott of Israel supported by most of his Palestinian peers. Recently, he traveled into further isolation by leading an effort to teach Palestinians at universities in the West Bank about the Holocaust, which is not part of the curriculum in Palestinian schools. In addition to a series of seminars on the topic, in March he took what is thought to have been the first group of students from the Palestinian territories to visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, in Poland.

Referring to the trip, Mr. Dajani said in an interview, “It helped emphasize the human story of the Holocaust, to study the meaning of the historical narrative as related to our conflict, to heighten empathy, awareness, and sensitivity.”

In addition to being denounced as a traitor and collaborator with Israel, Daoudi had his car torched. But to many Israelis and decent people, he was seen as a hero.

So it comes as a huge disappointment to discover that Mr Daoudi is not all he’s cracked up to be.

Following the brutal murder of 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel, Muslim Zionist Noor Dahri posted the following:


This is how Mohammed S. Dajani Daoudi responded.

noor22A 13-year-old girl is murdered and this man put forward as an advocate of peace, non-violence, tolerance and understanding justifies it on the grounds of “occupation.”

And in case you think this is a one-off misunderstanding, this is what he posted not long after the terror attack.

And here he is exalting Arafat and Hitler’s buddy the Mufti of Jerusalem, Mohammed Amin al-Husseini.

Disappointing does not fully describe it.

    Why don’t these Arab professors deal with the Baghdad Farhud, the Hebron massecre, the etnic cleansing of all the Jewish communities of the Arab world, most who found their way to Israel. This is another way of saying the Palis are paying for what the Europeans did to the Jews. This war is between Arabs and Jews and the Arabs ahve plenty of sins to atone for.

    1. because…..zionism

      dont you get it…the very act of jews thinking about returning to their homeland drove the arabs mad…and arabs dont like to be driven mad…therefore it was the jew that created the hate towards them
      although that doesnt really explain 1400 years of jews living as dhimmi or the many pogroms committed by arab muslims on jewish communities long before zionism was a concept
      doesnt explain the many passages in the koran and haddiths that describe jews as devils or allow muslims to do what they want to jews. for jews are less than human

      there will never be peace. and enemies cannot be expected to live together
      so its time to pack up all the arabs and send them home to jordan
