A few days ago I received in my mail subscriptions, once again, links to items from Muslim and Arabs countries with Holocaust Denial.
I fail to understand why they have a need to deny, and/or claim, it to be exaggerated, to be quite honest with you. Denial.? Surely there is more than enough evidence out there to show otherwise. Though the Arab/Muslim countries are far from alone. All one has to do is to browse Facebook and Youtube to see that.
Pakistani Urdu Weekly Promotes Holocaust Denial:
‘Jews Have Been Taking Full Advantages By Howling About The Holocaust’
Following are excerpts from an article in Zarb-e-Momin (Strike of the Faithful Muslim), an Urdu-language jihadist weekly openly sold across Pakistan. Zarb-e-Momin, which began publishing in the early 1990s, has been linked to the Al-Rashid Trust, a banned charity connected to Al-Qaeda and other jihadist organizations in Pakistan.
The article, titled “Who is tolerant?” written by Waqar Ahmed (who is possibly based in Australia), questions the Holocaust and accuses Jews of promoting it for their advantage. The beginning the article, which is not included below, features a fictional scenario in which a visiting Muslim is told by a local not to talk about the Holocaust.
Following are excerpts from the article, as translated from Urdu:
“On The One Hand, Jews Beat The Drum Of Freedom Of Expression, But On The Other Hand, They Do Not Let Any Occasion Pass To Strangle Truth With Their Iron Hands”
“[…] on this topic [of the Holocaust], research aside, even talking about it is a crime here [presumably in Australia]. Anyone who investigates it is either pushed to obscurity or suffers the fate of imprisonment. An Australian history teacher was given three years’ imprisonment. The convicted professor… had, after investigating, refused to accept the veracity of Holocaust…”
“On the one hand, Jews beat the drum of freedom of expression, but on the other hand, they do not let any occasion pass to strangle truth with their iron hands. How is it possible to stamp a seal on someone’s tongue in the current era and imprison his thoughts? I will definitely work on this subject, will expose to the whole world what is reality and what is fiction…”
Egyptian TV Host Gaber Al-Karmoty: The Jews Are Using The Holocaust To Suck The Blood Of The Germans
In a January 15 address on the Egyptian ON TV channel, TV host Gaber Al-Karmoty complained that the Holocaust was “off limits,” while drawing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad was not.
Gaber Al-Karmoty: “According to the principles of free speech, the Holocaust is off limits. Have you heard about the Holocaust of Germany and the Jews? I’m talking about what people call the Nazi Holocaust, for which they are still sucking the blood of the Germans. Who? The Jews! Israel goes on and on about this every year. They weep and cry about the Holocaust, the blood, and the pain, and they cry: We were tormented, we want reparations, whatever… But when along came a French intellectual like Roger Garaudy, and said: ‘The Holocaust was just a show. It doesn’t make sense’… What did they do to the man Garaudy? They humiliated him.
“Garaudy published the book The Founding Myths of Modern Israel. Consequently, he was tried in France for doubting the Holocaust of the Jews. God Almighty! There is no god but Allah! Doesn’t this fall under freedom of thought? He believed that the Jewish Holocaust was nothing but a show. A film. After all, you allowed people to curse the Prophet Muhammad. Did anyone do anything about these people? No. Did anyone tell them they were doing something wrong? No. They depicted our Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist, God have mercy. Nobody asked them: ‘What do you think you are doing?’ Did they send to the cartoonist to prison? No, they said this is freedom of speech.”
Worrying to me is this site with an Australian URL, though it does appear to be American, called “Bible Believers” with a section called “Is the Holocaust a Hoax? and they sure think so, to the point of making me quite ill.

One of their photos at Auschwitz no less !!:
The PA is notorious for its Holocaust denial. Palestinian Media Watch has a section devoted to it.
Palestinians from both Fatah and Hamas have accused Israel of burning Palestinians in ovens, and alternatively have accused Zionists of committing the Holocaust against Jews for political, financial or social gain. A PA TV children’s broadcast taught that Israel burned Palestinians in ovens, and at an exhibit in Gaza children put dolls, representing Palestinian children, in a model oven adorned with a Star of David and a swastika. A PA daily wrote: “The exhibit includes a large oven and inside it small [Palestinian] children are being burned; the picture speaks for itself,” as if the exhibit was documenting something true. [Al-Ayyam, March 20, 2008] The event was sponsored by the Palestinian “National Committee for Defense of Children from the Holocaust.”
A crossword puzzle clue in the official PA daily identified “Yad Vashem” (Israel’s Holocaust memorial) as a “Center for the Holocaust and Lies.” The same PA daily has published many articles denying the Holocaust, including one that termed the Holocaust a “hen laying golden eggs.”
Palestinian education erases the actual Holocaust from history and usurps the word “Holocaust” or its own wide range of malicious libels.
This video depicts a PA TV children’s play teaching that Israel burned Palestinians in ovens.
their knife cuts to the length and the width of our flesh…
They opened ovens for us, to bake human beings.
They destroyed the villages and burnt the cities.
And when an oven stops burning, they light a hundred [more] ovens.
Their hands are covered with the blood of our children.”
The thesis of 1982 doctoral dissertation by Mahmoud Abbas, was “The Secret Connection between the Nazis and the Leaders of the Zionist Movement”. In his book on 1983 The Other Side: the Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism based on the dissertation, Abbas denied that that six million Jews had died in the Holocaust; dismissing it as a “myth” and a “fantastic lie”.
He wrote, at most,”890,000″ Jews were killed by the Germans and claimed that the number of deaths has been exaggerated for political purposes.
“It seems that the interest of the Zionist movement, however, is to inflate this figure [of Holocaust deaths] so that their gains will be greater. This led them to emphasize this figure [six million] in order to gain the solidarity of international public opinion with Zionism. Many scholars have debated the figure of six million and reached stunning conclusions—fixing the number of Jewish victims at only a few hundred thousand.”
I have just discovered a new website, well not new, new to me, called the Holocaust Encyclopedia
I urge you to take a good look through this site and to bookmark it for future reference. It’s an invaluable tool.
‘Some Holocaust deniers claim that those “few” Jews who perished died from natural causes or were legitimately executed by the Nazi state for actual criminal offenses. They assert that Jews and the Allied powers deliberately inflated the numbers of Jews killed during the war. Holocaust historians have placed the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust between 5.1 and 6 million, based on legitimate available historical sources and demographic methods. Holocaust deniers cite uncertainty about the exact number of deaths within this accepted range as proof that the whole history of the Holocaust has been fabricated and that the number of Jewish deaths during World War II has been grossly exaggerated.’
‘Some Holocaust deniers assert that the Nazis did not use gas chambers to kill Jews. They deny the reality of the killing centers. Deniers have focused their attention on Auschwitz and believe if they could just disprove that the Nazis used gas chambers in Auschwitz to kill Jews, the whole history of the Holocaust would also be discredited.’
‘Holocaust deniers often mimic the forms and practices of scholars in order to deceive the public about the nature of their views. They generally footnote their writings by citing the publications of other Holocaust deniers and hold pseudo-scholarly conventions.’
‘Holocaust denial on the Internet is especially a problem because of the ease and speed with which such misinformation can be disseminated. In the United States, where the First Amendment to the Constitution ensures freedom of speech, it is not against the law to deny the Holocaust or to propagate Nazi and antisemitic hate speech. European countries such as Germany and France have criminalized denial of the Holocaust and have banned Nazi and neo-Nazi publications. The Internet is now the chief source of Holocaust denial and the chief means of recruiting for Holocaust denial organizations.’
In my search for Holocaust denial information another I came across this site which I have no words for:
The opening page states:
Welcome to the English edition of Denmark’s First Patriotic Homepage. The English edition contains mainly translations of selected articles originally written in Danish. This homepage is not a hate-site such as the Simon Wiesenthal Centre is slanderously claiming. You will not find anything that express hateful emotions but only criticism of and a closer look at the concept of political correctness. If you belong to the ruling elite you may certainly not like this website. The Simon Wiesenthal Centre, ADL and other self-styled super-censors would certainly not like the revisionist articles. However I find it very important that netizens get the opportunity to see this material themselves instead of just getting the biased opinion of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, Hatewatch and the controlled mass media.
It is very difficult for me to understand, why exactly it is the fate of Jews during WW2 that cannot be questioned, when you can do so about all other historical events.
In the USA there has been built a special holocaust museum in spite of the fact that the American Jews have never suffered any particular harm and have always been among the most well educated and affluent. One could ask oneself whether it had been more appropriate if there had been built a museum for the fate of the Red Indians or the Negro slavery. Why have the sufferings of Jews an exceptional position in proportion to other ethnic groups?
Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Jewish organisation Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith (New York) in ADL On the Frontline, January 1994 p. 2 , gives the following answer to this question:
“The Holocaust is something different. It is a singular event. It is not simply one example of genocide but a near successful attempt on the life of God’s chosen children and thus, on God Himself. It is an event that is the antithesis of Creation as recorded in the Bible; and like it’s direct opposite, which is relived weekly with the Sabbath and yearly with Torah, it must be remembered from generation to generation”
So it is because the Jews according to religious scriptures regard themselves as God’s chosen people that the sufferings of the Jews are regarded more important than that of other peoples.
YouTube and Facebook are both breeding grounds for those involved not only in Holocaust denial but antisemitism too.
The latest to appear on YouTube is a channel called “Lampshades And Soap”. This person is being very cunning and clearly he is aware that his videos will be deleted by those of us who are subscribed to “They Can’t”. He has a number of channels connected to it,so that if one goes there is another in situ waiting for it.
I urge you to sign up to their Facebook page to receive links to report YouTube videos. It’s only by mass reporting that we can get these videos removed. It takes less than a minute to report one and to remove such trash from the Internet. https://www.facebook.com/TheyCant?fref=nf
