Some fair points here, but 2 things to remember: (1) It was entirely possible to oppose the admission of Jewish refugees while opposing the Nazi and Czarist era Jew-hating ideologies. Instead, the Mufti really embraced them, and worked to promote them throughout the Arab world. He was not at all uncomfortable with hatred of Jews and took on the task of promoting anti-Jewish bigotry. He was likewise comfortable with the killing of large numbers of Jewish civilians if necessary to keep Jewish refugees from reaching Palestine. (2) His hatred of Jews extended even to the non -Zionist Jewish civilians of Mesopotamia who considered themselves Iraqis and had no desire to move to Palestine.
