Arab advertiser uses Hitler image to gain attention





A property advert featuring a picture of German dictator Adolf Hitler has sparked outrage across the UAE.

Conqueror Real Estate used an image of the Führer alongside the strapline: "The World Is Yours".

And yesterday the firm's general manager admitted he authorised use of the image to attract attention to his firm.

But his choice has been criticised by experts and residents, who have branded the advert insulting and of bad taste.

Hitler's policy of creating a German empire triggered the Second World War and led to the deaths of millions of people. Dutch national Hink Huisman said: "It is absolutely insulting. It only shows the support of a certain community for Hitler's cause, without realising what they are supporting, or what they think they are supporting.
