Michael Jackson -- I Could Have Touched Hitler

9/25/2009 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson truly believed that he could have charmed Hitler out of doing that thing he did back in the '40s, if only he could have had a sit-down conversation with the guy.

Michael Jackson and Aldof Hitler

It's all according to a report from The Sun ... who's quoting Michael's friend Rabbi Shmuley ... who says he has a tape of Michael making the comments for an interview the two did a while back. We'll believe it when we hear it....

But in the report, Michael is also quoted as calling Hitler a "genius orator" -- a statement similar to the one Aubrey O'Day made on Fox News a few weeks ago.

Here's a partial transcript from the supposed interview:

Shmuley:
"You believe that if you had an hour with Hitler you could somehow touch something inside of him?"

Jackson: "Absolutely. I know I could ... You have to help them, give them therapy, teach them that somewhere, something in their life went wrong."

Unfortunately, Jackson was born in 1958 ... about 13 years after Hitler killed himself.

#665 NBR1MJFan:

Just wanted to say that I read your post, and it was very passionate, heartfelt, and eloquent, and I agree with a lot of what you said. I understand how you feel in many respects.
Most of us are still so angry and even hurt about what went down with MJ and how terrible it ended, and the helplessness in stopping it, etc., that we don't know quite how to deal with it or have peace with it. MJ represented a lot of us who grew up with him in his era. He had a fairy tale story that we could enjoy vicariously, and it's still hard to grasp that it could turn out so badly for him in the end. But, I just think his time had come, really. He accomplished most of the things he ever hoped for, I think, with the exception of watching his children grow up.

Hitler, Chavez and a certain Iranian leader are listed as madmen who want to destroy Americans and Jews. You can't reason with someone who wants believes genocide is the only compromise. This was a very naive attitude to think they can be reasoned with.

The Sun publication is a BS tabloid with sensationalistic headlines that have no bearing on the actual article content!! He just says about the power he commanded in drawing the audiences he did.. Michael also said it was important for him to disappear away from public, to help the children but not be visible anymore, also he didnt want to grow old!! Very posthumous now!!

One tabloid reporting on another tabloid? Seriously?

I am sure a lot of people wish they could touch the heart of evil men and chjange them. Unfortunately it doesn't happen. Being a black man Michael definitely wouldn't have gotten far since Hitler hated Jews and Blacks.


Why is TMZ fascinated with Hitler? Didn't you print a story about some model or actress a while back. Hitler is one person who deserves no mention at anytime in the media.

MJ fans hold tight turn up the music. Most of us know the B.S. was going to start and maybe MJ did think he could help people.Justice for Michael and his children
