UN Human Rights Chief: Islamist Militants Think Like Nazis

The first UN High Commissioner for Human Rights who is both an Arab and a Muslim also Thursday became the first one to visit the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington. The Jordanian prince said the more recent slaughters of defenseless people by Islamist militants - and the death by fire of a pilot from his own country - were perpetrated by what he called “takfiri” or “infidels.” He said they are deceiving their followers with Nazi-like chauvinistic lies. VOA’s Jerome Socolovsky reports.
