Rajab 11,1427/August 6, 2006 #52
SHAME OF THE DAY:
Israel has made 800,000 Lebanese homeless, killed 932 civilians,
including 466 children, and wounded 3,000 civilians. The Lebanese
economy has been put back by 20 years just as Israel had promised
on the first day of the war. However, the U.S. and France have
"resolved" to punish Hizbullah without a word of condemnation
Not a word in the proposed resolution about Gaza where 50 Israeli
tanks rampaged on August 5 and killed 8 Palestinians including a
mother and two teenagers.
THOUGHT OF THE DAY: August 6, 2006
Congratulations to the Muslims of the world!
After 26 days of fighting, Israel is unable to defeat Hizbullah.
It took a small Islamic force, with faith in Allah, without an air
force, without heavy artillery, without tanks, to make Israeli
victory a thing of the past.
Now that ISRAEL CANNOT WIN, the U.S. and France have concocted a
"resolution" to fulfil Israeli plans. Weeks passed and
Bush-Olmert-Blair would not accept a cease fire hoping against
hope that Israeli tanks would break through. Too bad guys! Your
game is up!
Latest Demonstrations Against Israeli Aggression:
A huge pro-Hizbullah demonstration in Baghdad, hundreds of
thousands of people, called by Syed Moqtada al-Sadr indicates
that American policies in Iraq are facing a new disaster.
Dar-us-Salam, Tanzania thousands
Johannesburg, South Africa thousands
Cairo, Egypt. [Still very small, shows failure of Muslim Brotherhood]
Pakistan: Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar, HUGE in spite of
Greensboro, North Carolina: [5th demonstration called by
Jamaat al-Muslimeen. Some abuse aimed at demonstrators by local Jews.]
From the battlefields [by New Trend's media monitor]
Lebanon: From August 2 to 5, Israeli tank columns
attempted to break into Lebanon along an 11-mile long front.
Israel used 10,000 troops against an area defended by an
estimated 300 to 500 Hizbullah mujahideen. Israel destroyed
6 border villages and is operating ONE to THREE kilometers
inside Lebanon but is not able to claim any area as under its
stable occupation. Eight of Israel's tanks were blown up. Forty
five of its soldiers have been killed, as opposed to 22
Israel's helicopter raid into Baalbeq [Aug.1-2] was a failure.
The Israelis managed to kill 17 Lebanese civilians, including 7
children [mostly in the mayor's home]. They abducted 5 Lebanese
and claimed that these were mid-level Hizbullah "leaders" but
they turned out to be ordinary citizens.
On August 5, Israel tried to land commandos in Tyre but failed
owing to fierce Hizbullah resistance resulting in the shooting
of 8 Israeli commandos whom the Israelis say did not die.
[Israel is expected to make a big push to capture territory on
the border before the cease fire comes in.]
AFGHANISTAN: FIRST CANADIAN DEFEAT
August 3: In a battle between Taliban and heavily armed Canadian
armored forces, the Canadians were routed and fled back to their
base in Kandahar. Canada has conceded that 4 of its troops were
killed and 10 wounded. [A report in the Toronto Star says that a
Canadian soldier, his hand shaking, complained that the Taliban
were too well "organized.] It appears that Taliban took on the
Canadians in a mountain gulch where the U.S. air force could not bomb.
Earlier on August 2, in Zabul province, 15 Karzai police surrendered
when the Taliban attacked.
On August 5, one Canadian soldier was killed and 3 wounded when
an Afghan civilian hit their military jeep with his car. It
seemed to be an accident.
IRAQ: Heavy Fighting
In the last 8 days, 15 U.S. troops were killed in the western
provinces of Iraq in heavy fighting. The Pentagon gave out the
figures but did not reveal details. More than 3,000 U.S. troops
have been moved to Baghdad to help the Nuri al-Maliki clique
control the situation. Meanwhile in Mosul and Kirkuk, military
and police organized by the U.S. suffered heavy losses, including
a top police officer killed in Mosul.

ISNA Vice President Ingrid Mattson Worked Under Israeli Citizen
at Hartford Seminary [Connecticut] Fluent in Hebrew
According to the Hartford Seminary located in Connecticut, see
their web site, Dr. Ingrid Mattson, worked under the supervision
of Dr. Abu Rabi who is an Israeli citizen and fluent in Hebrew.
The Seminary reportedly promotes Christian missionary activity
under the guise of research for greater Christian-Muslim understanding.
Ingrid Mattson suddenly became Vice President of ISNA [Islamic
Society of North America] under circumstances which were not
clear. It appears that owing to the activities of Asra Nomani
and Amina Wadud, ISNA was under government pressure to provide
"female leadership" for Muslims.
ISNA does not oppose the legitimacy of Israel. Syed Syeed, an
ISNA 'leader' for decades, supports close work with the FBI. It's
not clear on what basis ISNA should claim to be "Islamic" but it
keeps telling American Muslims that it is Islamic and collects
funds from the Muslim community. [Syed Syeed claims to be from
Kashmir but does not publicly oppose the occupation of Kashmir

FBI paid informants in case of accused terror cell By Madeline
Bar Diaz and Vanessa Blum South Florida Sun-Sentinel
07/26/06 "Orlando Sentinel" -- -- The FBI paid almost
$56,000 to two confidential informants who are key to the case
against seven men accused of being involved in a terrorist plot
to blow up the Sears Tower in Chicago and other targets.
According to a document filed by federal prosecutors, the FBI
paid one unnamed informant $10,500 and an additional $8,815 in
expenses. A second informant was paid $17,000 with another $19,570
for expenses. U.S. officials also granted the second informant a
"significant public benefit" -- immigration parole so he could
remain in the country.
While using paid informants is not unusual in criminal cases,
defense attorneys for the accused men said the compensation and
benefits will help them show jurors the informants are not
"The fact that these are not just good citizens that are
cooperating with the government, but that these are opportunists
that are trying to earn not only money but other benefits by
creating a case, is extremely significant," said Gregory Prebish,
attorney for Burson Augustin, one of the accused.
Jose Padilla Case Postponed to January 22, 2007!
Government Can't Find Any Evidence which will Stick.
[The following is excerpted from the Miami Herald, August 5.
Notice that it also mentions Dr. Kifah Jayyousi who has no
idea who is Jose Padilla but the government linked this totally
innocent U.S. citizen to the case when he wouldn't support bogus stories.]
With much fanfare, the U.S. government charged Jose Padilla last
fall in a South Florida terror-conspiracy indictment. He was brought
to Miami in January under heavy guard, shackled hand and foot,
helicopters flying overhead.
But now a federal judge says the case against him appears "very
light on facts."
In the last week, U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke ordered
prosecutors -- for the second time -- to provide more details
to make their case against Padilla and codefendants Adham Amin
Hassoun and Kifah Wael Jayyousi, accused of being part of a
North American terrorist cell that supported Islamic jihad abroad.
Cooke said the Miami federal prosecutors' initial response was

Lebanon war Helps us Understand How World War II history
["Holocaust, etc] was Distorted : Shirer vs Irving
The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. A History of Nazi
Germany by William L. Shirer, 1249 pages, Simon & Schuster,
Ins. 1959, 1960, 1987, 1988, 1990.
Israel's war again against Lebanon has been supported by a
campaign of disinformation let loose by the corporate media in
which Israeli officials and American Zionist Jews have played an
important role. Language has been mutilated in this endeavor and
extremely far- fetched interpretations of elementary facts have
become common place. For instance, viewers are told that the
capture of an Israeli soldier sitting in his huge tank is an
"abduction" and/or a kidnaping. Nearly a thousand Lebanese
ciivilians have been killed and more than 3,000 wounded in
Israeli bombardments. Why? The media tell us that the innocents
got killed because Hizbullah hides among civilians and fires
rockets from apartments where the families of Hizbullah live.
[The Israelis cannot explain why Hizbullah's popularity is at
an all time high within that very same population among whom
its fighters perpetrate these "cowardly" acts?]
Israel kills Palestinians every day, including children. The excuse?
They are "terrorists."
This disinformation is distributed in the U.S. about Israel's
enemies. What would the Israelis/Jews and their supporters say
about the Germans who were their avowed enemies? Within that
context, let's look at a book which is central to America's view
of what happened in World War II.
Shirer's book is the most famous of the histories of the war
written from the viewpoint of the victors. In can be found in
just about every public library in the U.S., from coast-to-coast.
The Book-of-the-Month Club sold more copies of this book than any other.
By contrast, David Irving's book, Hitler's War, or the the
monumental Churchill's War are not available in any library
[with very few exceptions] and the author has been imprisoned in
Austria to silence his expression of dissent.
My reading of Shirer's book indicates that it is shoddy history,
lacks any attempt at objectivty and is ridulously low in research
quality as compared to Irving's book. Here is a sampling of
Before Shirer begins his book, he makes it very clear that he is
writing a condemnation of Hitler's Third Reich, not an objective
history which would provide the facts and let the readers decide.
He gives a page to four quotes meant to condemn Germany. The most
propagandistic of these is from Hans Frank, the German Governor
of occupied Poland: words which he spoke during his trial by the
allies at Nuremburg after the war. Frank was trying to save his
neck by condemning the regime which he had served. His words:
"A thousand years will pass and the guilt of Germany will
not be erased." [Frank did not escape the hangman's noose.]
One opens this thick book and reads that quote from Frank before
the book begins. Thus Shirer makes it very clear which side he
is on: He is not a historian but a spillover from the hatred of
the war, yet Americans think he is a historian!
For argument's sake, let's accept Shirer's familiar assumption that
Hitler was the devil incarnate. Does that help us to understand
Hitler's tremendous popularity among the Germam masses? If he was
a criminal and all his men were thugs, how does one understand
the willingness of his people to fight and die under his command
in their millions? Here Shirer's history is hollow. Let's look
at one of Hitler's greatest pre-war successes: The unification
of Austria with Germany.
[Austria is now such a wretched servant of the Jews that in the
year 2006 it sentenced David Irving to three years in prison.
So much for democracy and fredom of expression!]
Shirer calls his chapter on the unification of Germany and Austria
[page 322-356] "The Rape of Austria." This is comparable to the
Israeli insistence in 2005 that Hamas election victory in
Palestine means that now the 'terrorists" have taken over
the government of Palestine! As one goes through these 34 pages,
there is almost nothing in them about the love the Austrian
people had for Hitler. Almost as an after thought Shirer tells
us that Hitler was received with tremendous acclaim when he
visited Austria after the unification. He takes on the tone
that perhaps the Austrians were crazy.
Most of Shirer's chapter is a blow-by-blow account of the
machiavellian intrigues and intimidation Hitler used to get
rid of the government of Austria to bring about the unification.
In a footnote, Shirer tells us that in fact the government of
Austria was dictatorial and communistic. Thus Shirer conceals
the real conflict in Germany-Austria and the rest of Europe:
the struggle between Communism and Nationalism.
[Communists were often Jewish and that played into Hitler's
diatribes against Jews. A political factor was involved, not
raw anti-semitism as we are often led to believe.]
Archives from those times are still available and they indicate
that no human being in the history of Europe has EVER received
such popular support and veneration as Hitler did from the
Austrian masses. That's simply a fact of history, not a trick
which Hitler played!
SHIRER and the "HOLOCAUST"
Shirer dug a hole for himself in the beginning of the book and
in the later part fell into it. He tells us that he was able to
write this monumental book because the "confidential archives
of the German government and all its branches" were captured
by the allies. He says this was "an event unique in history"
that even "private diariies, highly secret speeches,
conference reports and correspondence, and even transcripts
of telephone conversations of the Nazi leaders" fell into
the hands of the victors. [P. ix]
With that kind of availability of secret information, Shirer
later in the book, during his coverage of the "holocaust" story,
admits that Hitler's order for the extermination of the Jews is
NOT TO BE FOUND in WRITING. From this he surmises that the
order must have been given orally.[pp. 964-965.] He then
claims that every time a German leader referred to the
"final solution" of the Jewish question, he MUST have been
referring to extermination. Thus he builds up his case for
the Jewish claim that SIX Million Jews [in captal letters]
were killed by Hitler's war machine [many by "gassing" in
"ovens."] Sadly, he can't find Hitler's order for this vast
operation. An objective historian like Irving admits that
there is no order from Hitler ordering the extermination of
the Jews; hence it is historically wrong to surmise that
Hitler gave such an order.
A fatal flaw in Shirer's monumental history is his naive
acceptance of the testimony of Hoss, the Commandant of the
Auschwitz concentration camp. Shirer quotes repeatedly
from Hoss's confession to affirm the horrors allegedly
committed at Auschwitz against the Jews.[pp.967-969] Shirer
never took the trouble to study the origins of the Hoss
confession and the process and circumstances through which
it emerged. It has been used by the entire gallery of Jewish
propagandists who wanted to affirm that 4 million people
were "gassed" in ovens.
As Irving has shown, Hoss was subjected to severe torture by
his captors after the war. He was beaten into a condition
where he was willing to sign anything and was willing to
embroider the alleged accounts of the "atrocities" he had
committed, when he was brought to the Nuremburg tribunal.
Hoss saw his life hanging in the balance and thought he
could save himself by recounting the most astounding stories
of "gassing" and killing which he was willing to assign to
himself! [After the court got what it wanted from him, he was hanged.]
No serious scholar of Auschwitz accepts Hoss' confession which
was compiled in stages and which he signed without reading it.
Irving does not specialize in "holocaust" study but one of the
best critiques was provided by a German judge, Wilhelm Staeglich,
in his Auschwitz: A Judge looks at the Evidence.
Staeglich presents a detailed critique of everything Hoss wrote
[or was made to write]. The whole story concocted by Hoss to save
his own life was bogus and does not stand up to critical scrutiny.
Again, owing to the power of the Jewish censorship machine,
Staeglich's book remains almost unknown in America, and, of
course, is excluded from all public libraries.
Shirer's account of the Battle of Britain too is shallow, to
say the least. He ignores the data Irving has unearthed which
indicates clearly that Hitler did not plan to invade Britain.
In fact he allowed the trapped the British army to escape from
Shirer is a popularizer of myths and legends. Unfortunately,
the American people have been led to believe that he was a
historian, even a great historian.
