Dr Kaukab Siddique | Editor-in-Chief Jamada al-Thani 24,1427/July 20, 2006 #47

SCROLL DOWN to good stuff: Elie Wiesel may be a fraud! Oprah Winfrey should stop worshipping him and report on the suffering of Africans in Sierra Leone who have suffered and are suffering more than any Jews.

Also, below a message from Dr. Wilmer Leon. His "On With Leon" show, the best in alternative radio is expanding and with good stuff.

Editorial by Kaukab Siddique
For Muslims in America who are quiet because they fear oppression:
The Example of a slave woman [r.a.] who was not afraid.

We are Muslims and by definition should fear Allah alone. Remember, this land belongs to Allah and not to any one race. We Muslims are here by Allah's PLAN. The slaves built this land. Many of them were Muslims. Then came Muslim immigrants from the East. And now the Latinos/Latinas and Native Americans too are reverting to Islam.

Which groups are teaching Muslims to be defensive and to behave as if we need to ingratiate ourselves with the oppressors who are exploiting this country? Think about it.

What is Islam all about? Haven't you heard of Bilal (r.a.)? He too was physically helpless like us. Did he give up when faced with great odds?

Many Muslims do not know [ because their "leaders" don't tell them] of Sumayya, r.a., the slave woman who was the FIRST MARTYR of Islam. Remember, that was 7 years before the Hijra when the command for Jihad had not come. The Muslims had to endure oppression.

Sumayya, r.a., was tortured and killed by the arch enemy of Islam, Abu Jahl [the Bush of that time]. She could not fight back, but she resisted till the end with WORDS, with her spirit, with her family. At the end, Abu Jahal insulted the Prophet, pbuh, to her face and accused her of having fallen in love with him, pbuh [he used obscenities]. She was a family woman and she spat at Abu Jahl when he insulted the Prophet, pbuh.

Mujahid [first generation after Sahaba] narrates:" In the early era of Islam, Sumayya, may Allah be pleased with her, the mother of Ammar, r.a., was the first martyr. Abu Jahl speared her to death." [Al-Badaya wun-Nihaya by ibn Kathir, Vol. 3]

Her husband, Yasir, r.a., too was tortured and killed, some say before she was, some say after her. The words of the Prophet, pbuh, when he blessed the entire family of Yasir, r.a., are famous in the annals of Islam, and should be remembered by Muslims living under western rule. When he heard of the great suffering of Yasir and Summaya, he said:

" Persevere with patience! O family of Yasir! The Fire [of hell] will not touch you. Your place is in Paradise [in the Herafter]." [Hadith in the Tabaqat of ibn Sa'ad and other classical books of Hadith and early history.]

NEVER did the Prophet, pbuh, tell Summaya, r.a., Bilal, r.a., or any Muslim to assimilate into the kafir society and seek the favor of the oppressors.

THROUGHOUT the MUSLIM WORLD people are demonstrating and protesting against the Israeli tank columns in Gaza and the Israeli air assault on Lebanon. The most impressive till now are in:

Karachi, Pakistan
Khartoum, Sudan
Sana'a, Yemen

Owing to Hosni Mubarak's extremely repressive regime, only 500 people could demonstrate in Cairo, Egypt

Very encouraging: In "Saudi" Arabia, Islamic scholar Shaikh Muhammad al-Qarani openly supported Hizbullah, a very bold thing to do considering the sectarian attitide of the Saudi regime. In fact, the Saudi rulers supported the Israeli attack on Hizbullah but are now [July 20] claiming that Israel has gone too far.

Israel's other two supporters are King Abdallah of Jordan [master bootlicker and constant lick spittle of the White house] and Egypt's terrorist ruler Hosni Mubarak.

CALL for Anti-ISRAEL Demonstrations on July 22, 2006
Activist organizations across the U.S. and Canada are calling for demonstrations on July 22, 2006 to condemn Israeli aggression against Gaza and Lebanon. START ONE IN YOUR OWN AREA. Don't wait to be told. Go to the Imam of your local masjid on Friday.

BREAKING the ground: The first to move in America against Israeli aggression was Jamaat al-Muslimeen leader Imam Badi Ali. According to the News and Record of Greensboro, North Carolina, a successful demonstration was held there on July 18. See brief report below.

A massive demonstration against Israel and Bush was held in downtown Detroit, Michigan, which brought together most of the Arab communities, including large numbers of Shias. This is indeed a blow for those Shia groups which have been supporting Bush's invasion of Iraq. Dearborm-Detroit are the strongholds of Arab communities, be they from Lebanon, Syria, Yemen, Iraq or other Arab countries. Reports indicate that at least 10,000 people turned up, many of them openly DENOUNCING both Israel and Bush.

In CANADA, CIC [Canadian Islamic Congress] led by Dr. Masri, is calling for support for demonstrations against Israeli aggression and Canada's pro-Bush policies on July 22.

1. JAMAAT al-MUSLIMEEN urges Muslims in the U.S. and Canada to BREAK ALL TIES with Jews who support Israel. If these people can watch the horrors Israel is perpetrating against the people of Lebanon and Gaza and not condemn them, then they cannot be called civilized people.

Check on your doctors, businessmen, attorneys. They might be helping Israel with the money you pay them. Thus they are ridiculing you, must be laughing at you, while helping to destroy Lebanon. Many JEWS HAVE AMERICAN-SOUNDING NAMES. Unless you investigate, you won't know. Could anyone have thought, from his name, that Larry King is Jewish? Or Jonathan Pollard, the Israeli spy now in prison but whom the Israeli ambassador is still alowed to visit? Or Norm Coleman who got elected, of all places, from Minnesota.

Remember, if you pay a Jew who supports Israel, you are indirectly killing your own people.

2. Focus on boycott of businesses which support Israel and affect our people on a daily basis:

In response to a comment related to our BOYCOTT appeal which appeared on the "Islam Awakened" discussion group: We appreciate people who are bringing out many technical companies which support Israel. May Allah reward you for your efforts.

However, we urge readers to FOCUS on those companies which support Israel and which affect Muslims in their daily life. Here are the most important:

GROUNDBREAKING anti-Israel Demonstration

Greensboro, North Carolina: On July 18, 2006 Muslims and non-Muslims united to rally against Israel's aggression in Gaza and Lebanon. All the local TV, radio and newspaper outlets covered the event. The demonstration was led by Jamaat al-Muslimeen leader Imam Badi Ali. According to the News and Record, the imam told the media that Bush is supporting a terrorist state [Israel]. The demonstration went on for more than an hour.

Some of the local media did not like a banner which equated the Star of David with the Swastika.

LOOKING FORWARD: Raise the Flag of Palestine on September 26.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen leader Imam Badi Ali is urging people across America to raise the flag of Palestine on September 26, 2006. Please prepare for it in your local communities.

URGE ISNA, ICNA and W.D. Muhammad to Cut off their Jewish-Zionist Contacts

"O ye who believe! Fear Allah, and make your utterance straight forward that He may make your conduct whole and sound and forgive you your sins: He that obeys Allah and His Messenger, has already attained the highest achievement." [The Qur'an 33:70-71]

From Kaukab Siddique, Ph.D

If you are an innocent supporter or member of these pro-government organizations, please ask your leaders to cut off their relations with Jews who support Israel. People like Syed Syeed of ISNA, Ingrid Mattson, [ISNA VP] and other ISNA-ICNA-WD bootlickers of the "Master" have been hobnobbing with Israel-supporters for many years.

Don't let these PR Muslims get away with tricky, manipulative, "please both sides" resolutions meant to fool their own innocent supporters. Remember, Islam calls for a clear stand when great wrong is being done, as in Gaza and Lebanon now.

Like Jamaat al-Muslimeen, any organization which considers itself ISLAMIC must declare that it does not recognize Israel as a legitimate state.

W.D. Muhammad: A Long Time Friend of Zionist Jews

Many of the people who support W.D. and call him "imam" do not know that their leader has had relations with the blood suckers of the world for MANY years.

Here is an example:

W.D. Muhammad's friendship with major Jewish organizations has been so blatant that on March 26, 1995 he was invited to speak at the North Shore Congregation Israel in Glencoe, Illinois, one of the biggest Jewish Centers. W.D.'s photo, along with that of Rabbi Alexander Schindler, Rabbi Herbert Bronstein and Rabbi Gary Bretton-Granatoor, was given an ACROSS-the-PAGE spread in the "imam's" own paper Muslim Journal, on page 1 of the April 14, 1995 issue.

[Oprah Winfrey has been promoting Elie Wiesel as a Jewish saint and as a witness to the "holocaust." She did not tell her audiences that Wiesel's story is doubtful at best. As the Russian troops approached, instead of waiting to be liberated, Wiesel left with his German captors and survived! The Jewish story here is subjected to scholarly critique and falls apart. The writer was part of the resistance forces in France and fought the Germans. - Editor.]

A Prominent False Witness: Elie Wiesel

By Robert Faurisson

Elie Wiesel won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. He is generally accepted as a witness to the Jewish "Holocaust," and, more specifically, as a witness to the legendary Nazi extermination gas chambers. The Paris daily Le Monde emphasized at the time that Wiesel was awarded the Nobel Prize because: [1]

These last years have seen, in the name of so-called "historical revisionism," the elaboration of theses, especially in France, questioning the existence of the Nazi gas chambers and, perhaps beyond that, of the genocide of the Jews itself.

But in what respect is Elie Wiesel a witness to the alleged gas chambers? By what right does he ask us to believe in that means of extermination? In an autobiographical book that supposedly describes his experiences at Auschwitz and Buchenwald, he nowhere mentions the gas chambers. [2] He does indeed say that the Germans executed Jews, but ... by fire; by throwing them alive into flaming ditches, before the very eyes of the deportees! No less than that!

Here Wiesel the false witness had some bad luck. Forced to choose from among several Allied war propaganda lies, he chose to defend the fire lie instead of the boiling water, gassing, or electrocution lies. In 1956, when he published his testimony in Yiddish, the fire lie was still alive in certain circles. This lie is the origin of the term Holocaust. Today there is no longer a single historian who believes that Jews were burned alive. The myths of the boiling water and of electrocution have also disappeared. Only the gas remains.

The gassing lie was spread by the Americans. [3] The lie that Jews were killed by boiling water or steam (specifically at Treblinka) was spread by the Poles. [4] The electrocution lie was spread by the Soviets. [5]

The fire lie is of undetermined origin. It is in a sense as old as war propaganda or hate propaganda. In his memoir, Night, which is a version of his earlier Yiddish testimony, Wiesel reports that at Auschwitz there was one flaming ditch for the adults and another one for babies. He writes: [6]

Not far from us, flames were leaping from a ditch, gigantic flames. They were burning something. A lorry drew up at the pit and delivered its load -- little children. Babies! Yes, I saw it -- saw it with my own eyes ... Those children in the flames. (Is it surprising that I could not sleep after that? Sleep has fled from my eyes.)

A little farther on there was another ditch with gigantic flames where the victims suffered "slow agony in the flames." Wiesel's column was led by the Germans to within "three steps" of the ditch, then to "two steps." "Two steps from the pit we were ordered to turn to the left and made to go into a barracks."

An exceptional witness himself, Wiesel assures us of his having met other exceptional witnesses. Regarding Babi Yar, a place in Ukraine where the Germans executed Soviet citizens, among them Jews, Wiesel wrote: [7]

Later, I learn from a witness that, for month after month, the ground never stopped trembling; and that, from time to time, geysers of blood spurted from it.

These words did not slip from their author in a moment of frenzy: first, he wrote them, then some unspecified number of times (but at least once) he had to reread them in the proofs; finally, his words were translated into various languages, as is everything this author writes.

That Wiesel personally survived, was, of course, the result of a miracle. He says that: [8]

In Buchenwald they sent 10,000 persons to their deaths each day. I was always in the last hundred near the gate. They stopped. Why?

In 1954 French scholar Germaine Tillion analyzed the "gratuitous lie" with regard to the German concentration camps. She wrote: [9]

Those persons [who gratuitously lie] are, to tell the truth, much more numerous than people generally suppose, and a subject like that of the concentration camp world -- well designed, alas, to stimulate sado-masochistic imaginings -- offered them an exceptional field of action. We have known numerous mentally damaged persons, half swindlers and half fools, who exploited an imaginary deportation; we have known others of them -- authentic deportees -- whose sick minds strove to go even beyond the monstrosities that they had seen or that people said had happened to them. There have been publishers to print some of their imaginings, and more or less official compilations to use them, but publishers and compilers are absolutely inexcusable, since the most elementary inquiry would have been enough to reveal the imposture.

Tillion lacked the courage to give examples and names. But that is usually the case. People agree that there are false gas chambers that tourists and pilgrims are encouraged to visit, but they do not tell us where. They agree that there are false "eyewitnesses," but in general they name only Martin Gray, the well-known swindler, at whose request Max Gallo, with full knowledge of what he was doing, fabricated the bestseller For Those I Loved.

Jean-François Steiner is sometimes named as well. His bestselling novel Treblinka (1966) was presented as a work of which the accuracy of every detail was guaranteed by oral or written testimony. In reality it was a fabrication attributable, at least in part, to the novelist Gilles Perrault. [10] Marek Halter, for his part, published his La Mémoire d'Abraham in 1983; as he often does on radio, he talked there about his experiences in the Warsaw ghetto. However, if we are to believe an article by Nicolas Beau that is quite favorable to Halter, [11] little Marek, about three years old, and his mother left Warsaw not in 1941 but in October of 1939, before the establishment of the ghetto there by the Germans. Halter's book is supposed to have been actually written by a ghost writer, Jean-Noël Gurgan.

Filip Müller is the author of Eyewitness Auschwitz: Three Years in the Gas Chambers, [12] which won the 1980 prize of the International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism (LICRA). This nauseous best-seller is actually the work of a German ghost writer, Helmut Freitag, who did not hesitate to engage in plagiarism. [13] The source of the plagiarism is Auschwitz: A Doctor's Eyewitness Account, another best-seller made up out of whole cloth and attributed to Miklos Nyiszli. [14]

Thus a whole series of works presented as authentic documents turns out to be merely compilations attributable to various ghost writers: Max Gallo, Gilles Perrault, Jean-Noël Gurgan (?), and Helmut Freitag, among others.

We would like to know what Germaine Tillion thinks about Elie Wiesel today. With him the lie is certainly not gratuitous. Wiesel claims to be full of love for humanity. However, he does not refrain from an appeal to hatred. In his opinion: [15]

Every Jew, somewhere in his being, should set apart a zone of hate -- healthy, virile hate -- for what the German personifies and for what persists in the German. To do otherwise would be a betrayal of the dead.

At the beginning of 1986, 83 deputies of the German Bundestag took the initiative of proposing Wiesel for the Nobel Peace Prize. This would be, they said, "a great encouragement to all who are active in the process of reconciliation." [16] That is what might be called "going from National Socialism to national masochism."

Jimmy Carter needed a historian to preside over the President's Commission on the Holocaust. As Dr. Arthur Butz said so well, he chose not a historian but a "histrion": Elie Wiesel. Even the newspaper Le Monde, in the article mentioned above, was obliged to refer to the histrionic trait that certain persons deplore in Wiesel:

Naturally, even among those who approve of the struggle of this American Jewish writer, who was discovered by the Catholic François Mauriac, some reproach him for having too much of a tendency to change the Jewish sadness into "morbidity" or to become the high priest of a "planned management of the Holocaust."

As Jewish writer Leon A. Jick has written: "The devastating barb, 'There is no business like SHOAH-business' is, sad to say, a recognizable truth." [17]

Elie Wiesel issues alarmed and inflammatory appeals against Revisionist authors. He senses that things are getting out of hand. It is going to become more and more difficult for him to maintain the mad belief that the Jews were exterminated or were subjected to a policy of extermination, especially in so-called gas chambers. Serge Klarsfeld has admitted that real proofs of the existence of the gas chambers have still not yet been published. He promises proofs. [18]

On the scholarly plane, the gas chamber myth is finished. To tell the truth, that myth breathed its last breath several years ago at the Sorbonne colloquium in Paris (June 29-July 2, 1982), at which Raymond Aron and François Furet presided. What remains is to make this news known to the general public. However, for Elie Wiesel it is of the highest importance to conceal that news. Thus all the fuss in the media, which is going to increase: the more the journalists talk, the more the historians keep quiet.

But there are historians who dare to raise their voices against the lies and the hatred. That is the case with Michel de Boüard, wartime member of the Resistance, deportee to Mauthausen, member of the Committee for the History of the Second World War from 1945 to 1981, and a member of the Institut de France. In a poignant interview in 1986, he courageously acknowledged that in 1954 he had vouched for the existence of a gas chamber at Mauthausen where, it finally turns out, there never was one. [19]

The respect owed to the sufferings of all the victims of the Second World War, and, in particular, to the sufferings of the deportees, demands on the part of historians a return to the proven and time-honored methods of historical criticism.


Elie Wiesel passes for one of the most celebrated eyewitnesses to the alleged Holocaust. Yet in his supposedly autobiographical book Night, he makes no mention of gas chambers. He claims instead to have witnessed Jews being burned alive, a story now dismissed by all historians. Wiesel gives credence to the most absurd stories of other "eyewitnesses." He spreads fantastic tales of 10,000 persons sent to their deaths each day in Buchenwald.

When Elie Wiesel and his father, as Auschwitz prisoners, had the choice of either leaving with their retreating German "executioners," or remaining behind in the camp to await the Soviet "liberators," the two decided to leave with their German captors.

It is time, in the name of truth and out of respect for the genuine sufferings of the victims of the Second World War, that historians return to the proven methods of historical criticism, and that the testimony of the Holocaust "eyewitnesses" be subjected to rigorous scrutiny rather than unquestioning acceptance.


Le Monde, October 17, 1986. Front page.
There is one single allusion, extremely vague and fleeting, on pages 78-79: Wiesel, who very much likes to have conversations with God, says to Him: "But these men here, whom You have betrayed, whom You have allowed to be tortured, butchered, gassed, burned, what do they do? They pray before you!" (Night, New York, Discus/Avon Books, 1969, p. 79). In his preface to that same book, François Mauriac mentioned "the gas chamber and the crematory" (p. 8). The four crucial pages of "testimony" by Elie Wiesel are reproduced in facsimile in: Pierre Guillaume, Droit et Histoire (La Vieille Taupe, 1986), pp. 147-150. In the German-language edition of Night (Die Nacht zu begraben, Elischa [Ullstein, 1962]), on 14 occasions the word "crematory" or "crematories" has been falsely given as "Gaskammer" ("gas chamber[s]"). In January of 1945, in anticipation of a Russian takeover, the Germans were evacuating Auschwitz. Elie Wiesel, a young teenager at the time, was hospitalized in Birkenau (the "extermination camp") after surgery on an infected foot. His doctor had recommended two weeks of rest and good food but, before his foot healed, the Russian takeover became imminent. Hospital patients were considered unfit for the long trip to the camps in Germany and Elie thus could have remained at Birkenau to await the Russians. Although his father had permission to stay with him as a hospital patient or orderly, father and son talked it over and decided to move out with the Germans. (See Night, p. 93. See also D. Calder, The Sunday Sun [Toronto, Canada], May 31, 1987, p. C4.)
