Yes I agree with you there. It was the first political appointment of the Mufti, with lot's of wrangling and dirty-dealing, which has caused many of the problems today. He helped Hitler raise Muslim units in the Balakns among other things.
Think Arafat was his nephew, which is another reason why Hussein was non too tolerant in Black September.
