Of course, Ken Livingstone is right: Hitler pursued a pro-Zionist policies while committing to his genocidal anti-Semitic crimes

Of course, the Nazi regime pursued pro-Zionist policies. That is in the historical record.  The academic literature on the matter leaves no doubt, and it shows that German Middle East experts were arguing against the pro-Zionist policies of the regime, while the top echelons of the German government insisted on the pro-Zionist policies. I have summed up the situation here.   In one speech from 1920, Hitler said: "Jews should seek their human rights in their own state in Palestine, where they belong" (p. 28 in Nicosia, The Third Reich and the Palestine Question).  In the mind of many Nazis, Zionism and anti-Semitism go hand in hand, just as Zionism and anti-Semitism go hand in hand in the minds of many evangelical Christians.
