By Dr. Abdullah Mohammad Sindi ** (Ph. D. International Relations)

The word "holocaust" means an extensive destruction of humans by other humans resulting in the massive loss of life, especially by fire. However, the so-called "holocaust" by Nazi Germany against Jews is actually based on two major lies. The first lie says that the Nazis exterminated "6 million" Jews. Because this figure is extremely exaggerated, it is a lie. The second lie says that these "6 million" Jews were rounded up and then "gassed" or "burned" alive. Again, this is a lie because there is no proof whatsoever that any live Jew (just because he/she was simply a Jew) was ever "gassed" or "burned" in any so-called "gas chambers" or "crematories" in Nazi Germany. The small number of Jews and non-Jews who were actually burned or cremated were already dead by infectious diseases such as typhoid. It was a common practice by Nazi Germany and other countries to burn or cremate dead people infected by fatal communicable diseases to avoid epidemics. On the other hand, those Jews who were killed by conventional means were no more special than the majority of Nazi victims who were not Jews. Since the killing of non-Jews at the hands of the Nazis is not considered a "holocaust," why then should the killing of Jews by Nazi conventional means constitute a "holocaust?"

All Arabs and all Muslims (along with many other people around the world) know very well that the State of Israel is an illegitimate state established by the power of the gun in 1948 and has been maintained by it ever since.

Committed to a brutal and undemocratic program which could only be implemented by force, Israel has been founded on many well-known myths and lies. Toping the list of these typical myths and lies are the following ten:

1. That Jews are the "Chosen People of God."

2. That Palestine is "The Promised Land from God" for Jews only (despite the fact that Christianity was born there).

3. That the "Promised Land for Jews extends from the Nile to the Euphrates."

4. That Jews have been "homeless" for the last 2,000 years until Israel was created in 1948.

5. That the creation of Israel in 1948 is a "fulfillment of a Biblical prophecy."

6. That Arabs have "hated" Jews for the last 2,000 years (despite the fact that Arabs have always been composed of Muslims, Christians, and Jews).

7. That Palestine was "an empty land which did not have any native- inhabitants" when the Western Zionists created Israel on its land.

8. That Jews were not "allowed" to practice their religion freely in Palestine before Israel was created in 1948.

9. That Israel is a "democratic" and "peaceful" country (even though, it has waged many expansionist, wars against the Arabs and has been brutally killing and uprooting native Arab Christians and Arab Muslims from their historical homeland of Palestine as well as stealing their properties and businesses for the last 52 years).

10. That Nazi Germany committed a "Holocaust" by "gassing or incinerating six million Jews" during World War II.

While there are many Westerners who do not agree with at least one, of the first 9 myths, most people in the West accept the last Jewish/Zionist claim of the so-called "Holocaust" without any challenge as if it were a "divine truth." This holocaust hoax has been bought and sold by educated and uneducated Westerners alike, whether they are from the far Right (such as Christian fundamentalists), or from the so-called "Moderates," or even from the far Left (such as socialists and communists).

Although the US is a free country where the first Amendment to the US Constitution has supposedly guaranteed the freedom of speech for anyone who wish to logically and rationally express his/her view publicly; the so-called "Holocaust" is clearly an exception to this rule. While an attack or criticism by anyone on either the US Government, or the American President, or Jesus Christ, or even God is permitted in the USA, an attack or a critical comment from anyone on the lies and myths of the powerful Zionist/Jewish lobby is not permitted publicly in the land of the "free." Anyone who dares to publicly say anything critical about Zionism in the US is immediately castigated as a "racist'! or "anti-Semitic" (that is, anti-Jewish) and would pay a heavy price in damage to his/her reputation and career (as Marlon Brando and Vanessa Redgrave have found out the hard way). Sometimes the price for speaking out against the Zionists in the land of the "free" is murder, as was the case with Alex Odeh who was brutally killed in 1985 in his ADC (Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee) office in California.

Although American Jews constitute only a tiny minority of about 2 or 3% of the total US population according to the best estimate, one wonders if the US is really a Christian or a Jewish nation, especially when it comes to the so-called "holocaust" which is the subject of this article.

During the latter parts of World War II (1939-1945), when it became apparent that Nazi Germany's military defeat was~imminent, Zionist leaders in and out of the United States feared that their colonialist design to steal the Holy Land of Palestine from the Arabs might lose steam and support. Hence, despite the fact that the anti-Jewish Nazis were on the verge of being annihilated, add that most (if not all) European Jews had already been assimilated and were living peacefully in their own respective Western countries including the US where many German and Eastern European Jews had migrated, Zionist leaders still desperately wanted to continue at all costs with their old Pre-Nazi plan to settle-colonize Arab Palestine.

Obviously something heinous, dreadful, and shocking was needed during the concluding months of World War II and after it for two reasons. The first was to gain the necessary global legitimacy and support for the old Zionist scheme of 1897 (the birth of the World Zionist Organization) and 1917 (the British Balfour Declaration) to settle-colonize Palestine. The second was to rejuvenate Zionism by rallying reluctant Western non-Zionist Jews firmly behind the Zionist cause to establish an "exclusively" Jewish State for the so-called "homeless" Western Jews on this important Arab land, which the West has been obsessed to steal from the Arabs since the Crusades.

To acquire World-Wide support, compassion, and sympathy for their plan to colonize Arab Palestine, Zionist leaders in and out of the US began to circulate new and terribly horrifying stories that the Nazis had "incinerated" or "gassed" "six million" Jews (an incredible figure which has never been truly and independently verified) in various "gas chambers", "ovens," and "crematoria" in and out of Germany between the end of 1942 and November 1944 (five months prior to Adolph Hitler's suicide in April 1945).

The Zionists also added that the Nazis had even made "fertilizers," "lamp shades," "handbags," "ropes," and "soap" from the skin, fat, and hair of the "exterminated" Jews. This new dreadful information about the "extermination of six million Jews" was mentioned for the very first time on December 13, 1942, by Zionist Rabbi Israel Goldstein. [1] Goldstein's hellish claim became much more widely circulated by Zionist leaders and their supporters all over the world after the end of World War II particularly at the end of November 1947 when the US -masterfully engineered the infamous "United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181" by pressuring UN delegations to give "international legitimacy" to the creation of the State of Israel over half of Palestine.

However, no sooner had this new and shocking information about the so-called Nazi "Holocaust" become public than many Western scholars and publishers both in Europe and the US began to refute it quickly as a well-orchestrated wartime Zionist propaganda campaign similar to various propaganda during any war including World War I when the Germans were accused of eating Belgian babies and delighting to throw them in the air and transfix them on bayonets. In the words of one American Professor, the "Zionists, principally the World Jewish Congress, merely presented their nonsense to the Allied governments, in particular to the US Government, demanding endorsement of their nonsense."[2]

Although the Zionists and their sympathizers have always labeled anyone who denies the "holocaust" as a "right-wing" or "racist", in fact as early as the mid 1940s many Western and non-Western scholars and historians from all walks of life with different ethnic backgrounds and political persuasions including Jews have categorically refuted the alleged Nazi "genocide," "the gas chambers," and the unbelievable number of "six million." However, it should be quickly emphasized here that these scholars, some of whom will be mentioned shortly, do not deny the fact that many Jews and non-Jews were indeed persecuted or killed in Nazi Germany as well as in the German-occupied territories during World War II both inside and outside the horrible concentration camps. What they deny is the so-called "Holocaust." They deny both the number of the "six million" as well as the manner by which these Jews perished. These holocaust deniers all agree on the following five fundamental points: [3]

1. That the so-called "Holocaust" and the "six million" story originated from the Zionists themselves and not from any government authority or any other independent source.

2. That neither the February 1945 Yalta Conference (the summit by the leaders of the US, Russia, and Britain), nor the Vatican, nor even the International Red Cross, spoke out against the so-called "Holocaust" or "the six million" legend, and none of them had any reason to.

3. That the post-World War II Nuremberg "war crime trials" in Germany, which automatically "accepted" the Zionist claim of the "six million" figure, were nothing more than partial political prosecutions by the victorious powers.

4. That the only so-called "confession" to "burning and gassing live Jews" came from only one person on April 5 1946, the Nazi Auschwitz commandant Colonel Rudolf Franz Hoess (or Hoss), after he was tortured by six British military police intelligence officers as one of them, sergeant Bernard Clarke, later admitted.

5. That the best estimate of he number of Jews who died or killed (not "gassed" or "incinerated") in and out of the German concentration camps from either Nazi brutalities, starvation, diseases, war-related causes, or other reasons, ranges from 300,000 to 5OO,OOO. (It should be indicated here that during World War II about 74 million people died, Jews and non-Jews, including the Atomically incinerated civilian victims of the entire two Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.)

The late French geographer Paul Rassinier (nicknamed "the father of Holocaust Revisionism"), who was elected in 1945 as a Socialist to the French National Assembly, published in 1948 a book entitled Le Passage de la Ligne ("Crossing the Line") in which he recounted his horrible experiences as an interned left-wing political prisoner in the German concentration camps of Buchenwald and Dora between 1943 and 1945. In this book and in many others that followed it, such as The Holocaust Story and the Lies of Ulysses, Rassinier strongly refuted the "Holocaust," the "gas chambers," and the "six million" figure.

While completely rejecting the claim of the "extermination" of Jews by the Nazis, Rassinier accepted the reality that perhaps a million Jews might have perished [4] (a figure considered too high by many other holocaust refuters) due to many causes between 1933 and 1945 as a result of direct and indirect various brutal Nazi policies such as the turmoil of Jewish deportations, harsh labor conditions, internment camps, malnutrition, diseases, epidemics, and more importantly World War II itself.

Another French, Dr. Robert Faurisson, a former Professor at the Universite de Lyon, also rejected the so-called Nazi "Holocaust"; challenged anyone to draw or show a "Nazi gas chamber"; described the famous Diary of Anne Frank as a hoax; and called the Washington, DC Holocaust Memorial Museum "an historical fiasco." Incidentally, however, while there is a Holocaust Memorial Museum in the US for the presumed six million "gassed" Jews of Nazi Germany's supposed "extermination," there are nowhere in the US any holocaust memorial museums, reparations, or even words of apology for either Native Americans or Black Americans who were slaughtered like animals by the tens of millions at the hands of Euro-Americans in the largest holocaust the world has ever seen. In the words of one American Professor, "All told, it is probable that more than one hundred million native people were 'eliminated' in the course of Europe's ongoing 'civilization' of the Western Hemisphere. [5] Another American Professor writes that between 40 to 60 million black Africans lost their lives in the brutalities of the Euro-Americans slavery system. [6]

Nevertheless, in his well researched and documented book, The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: The Case Against the Presumed Extermination of European Jewry, Dr. Arthur R. Butz, an American Professor from Northwestern University, explained that during World War II even US State Department officials, such as J. Breckenridge Long and associates, "... considered all the talk about 'exterminations' to be just wartime propaganda invention, in the same spirit as the stories invented during World War I." [7] In Dr. Butz's words, "The 'gas chambers' were wartime propaganda fantasies completely comparable to the garbage that was shoveled out by Lord Bryce and associates in World War I." [8]

Dr. Butz also indicated that the total number of inmates in the entire German concentration camp system, Jews and non-Jews (since there were no camps for Jews alone), was about 224,000 in 1943 and 524,000 in 1944. [9] Moreover, Dr; Butz pointed out that Heinrich Himmler, the second most powerful man in Nazi Germany (who supposedly "committed suicide" by "poisoning himself" on May 23, 1945, while in British captivity), had explained a few weeks before the end of World War II in an interview with a representative of the World Jewish Congress that:

"In order to put a stop to the [typhus] epidemics, we were forced to burn the bodies of incalculable numbers of [dead] people who. had been destroyed by disease. We were therefore forced to build crematoria, and on this account they are knotting a noose ~for us." [10] Finally, Dr. Butz proved that there was no direct Nazi documentary evidence of any kind for an "extermination" program. He indicated that even Dr. Aryeh Leon Kubovy of the Israeli Center for Jewish Documentation in Tel-Aviv admitted in 1960 that "there exists no document signed by Hitler, Himmler or Heydrich speaking of exterminating the Jews and ... the word 'extermination' does not appear in the letter from Goering to Heydrich concerning the final solution of the Jewish question." [11] In addition, in her 1968 book Le systeme concentrationnaire nazi, French Jewish author Olga Wurmser-Migot writes: "Just as there exists no ... order of extermination by gas at Auschwitz, there exists no order to stop in November 1944. [that] Neither at the Nuremberg trial, nor during the course of marginal trials nor at the Hess trial in Cracow, nor of Eichman in Israel, nor at the trial of the camp commanders nor at the Frankfurt November 1945 - August 1946 trial of secondary Auschwitz figures, was the famous order signed by Himmler on 22 November 1944 on the end of the extermination of Jews by gas ever found, the order putting an end to the Final Solution." [12] On the other hand, in his book, The Six Million Swindle: Blackmailing the German People for Hard Marks with Fabricated Corpses, Dr. Austin J. App, the late American Professor of English literature at the University of Scranton and LaSalle College, explained that Hitler's so-called "Final Solution" to the Jewish problem was not "annihilation" but emigration through deportation and expulsion from Germany (which was openly approved as early as 1933 when Hitler came to power) with the complete cooperation and encouragement of the Zionists themselves who wanted German Jews to settle-colonize Palestine (in accordance with the British Balfour Declaration of 1917); that absolutely no live person was ever "gassed" or "burned" in any German concentration camp, including Auschwitz (allegedly the main "extermination" center); that the Jews who perished while in Nazi hands either died of epidemics and/or killed because they were subversives, spies, saboteurs, criminals, or otherwise victims of unfortunate but internationally legal reprisals; and that the Zionists and their sympathizers in the American media who constantly use the figure of "six million" have failed to offer even a shred of evidence to prove their charge. [13] In addition, other Western writers have confuted Holocaust story claims. Among them are the following two Americans: World War II Colonel John Beaty of the US Military Intelligence Service: of the War Department who ridiculed the "six million" legend in his book Iron Curtain Over America; and Dr David Leslie Hoggan, a former Professor at the University of California at Berkeley. Also, among British historians who have refuted the "Holocaust" are the following two: Richard E. Harwood who wrote a book in 1974 entitled Did Six Million Really Die? The Truth at Last [14], and the best-selling author David Irving. At least three German scholars refuted the "Holocaust." These include Dr. Wilhelm Staeglich who wrote Auschwitz: A Judge Looks at the Evidence, Emil Aretz who wrote Hexen-Einmal-Eins einer Luege ("The Witches' Multiplication Table is a Lie"), and Thies Christophersen who wrote Die Auschwitz Luege ("The Auschwitz Lie").

Among the Japanese holocaust refuters are the following two: Dr. Masanori Nishioka who wrote an illustrated ten-page feature article entitled: "The Greatest Taboo of Postwar History: There Were No Nazi Gas Chambers" in the 1995 February issue of the leading Japanese magazine Marco Polo, and the best-selling Japanese writer Masami Uno who described the "Holocaust" and the Diary of Anne Frank as lies.

Moreover, other prominent holocaust deniers include the following two Canadians, publisher Ernst Zundel, and geologist and aerial photography expert John Ball; Swiss right-wing educator Jurgen Graf; Italian document expert Carlo Mattogno [15]; and Roger Garaudy, a leftist French writer and former member of the French Communist Party whose book, Les mythes fondateurs de la politique israelienne ("The Founding Myths of the Israeli Policy"), was published in 1995 in Paris by the leftist writer and publisher Pierre Guillaume. [16] Beside the already-mentioned Jewish author Olga Wurmser-Migot, there are some other Western Jews who have also categorically denied that the Nazi government ever carried out or even contemplated the "gassing" of Jews. These include Swedish publisher Ditleib Felderer of the Jewish Information Bulletin, American David Cole, and German scholar Joseph Ginsburg. [17] In fact, people who dispute holocaust story claims are found even in Hollywood itself where Jews established all of the major film studios such as Columbia, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Paramount, Twentieth-Century Fox, Universal, and Warner Brothers. [18] For example, in a 1983 interview with Esquire magazine, the late prominent American actor, Robert Mitchum, scoffed at the so-called "Holocaust". When asked about the "slaughter of six million Jews" by the Nazis, Mitchum answered: "So the Jews say, ... People dispute that." [19] Notwithstanding the alleged "six million Jews gassed," there is no doubt whatsoever that it was from this so-called "Holocaust" (more than anything else) that Zionism has finally gained its wide popular acceptance and sympathy throughout the west. This in turn led to the brutal creation of the illegitimate State of Israel over the land of Arab Palestine in 1948 at the extremely tragic expense of its innocent natives.

In conclusion, however, whether the Nazis killed I or 6 million Jews (by whatever method), the Germans -- and not the Palestinian Arabs -- should have paid the price for the so-called "Holocaust". Rationally, any part of Germany (and not Palestine) should have been the site for the creation of the Jewish State of Israel.
