Hadith of the Week
Whom do you Really Love?
"A loud mouthed villager arrived and said: O Muhammad, what
if a person loves his people but is not wth them? The
messenger of Allah, peace be on him, said: On the Day of
Judgement, a person will be with the one he loves." Sunan of
Tirmidhi, #35036, Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hanbal # 18261.
Comment by Kaukab Siddique: Love should begin with the love
of Allah and His Prophet, pbuh, and the believers. Then we
have a good chance of choosing the person to love who will
help us to go to al-Jannah. Basing love on tribalism, race,
physical qualities or wealth or desire for enterainment and
corruption can only lead to jahannum.
The ummah concept is also implied in this hadith. Muslims of
America should love those who are striving for the victory
of Islam all over the world. Then we can hope for felicity
with the Ummah of Truth in the Hereafter.

Political Prisoners :
82 Kidnaped Girls Exchanged with Islamic Prisoners.
On May 6, Boko Haram released 82 girls it had kidnaped from
the village of Chibok were released in excchange for Islamic
prisoners released by the Nigerian military. The exchange
was brought about through the International Committeee of
the Red Cross. It's not clear yet that how many of the
Islamic prisoners were released.
Human rights organizations have pointed out the terrible
conditions of Boko Haram prisoners in Nigerian military
jails. Many hundreds have died there, including women and
children. However, the regime only focuses on the girls whom
Boko Haram kidnaped to exchange with their prisoners. The
girls have come out in good health. No pictures have been
issued of those whom the army has been holding.

16 Year Old Fatima Gives her Life armed only with a Knife.
Israeli paramilitary police officers shot and killed a
knife-wielding Palestinian teenage girl who tried to attack
them at an entrance to Jerusalem's Old City on Sunday, a
police spokeswoman said.
The incident was the latest in a 19-month-long period of
sporadic street attacks by Palestinians against Israelis,
and the bustling Damascus Gate entrance to Jerusalem's
walled Old City where it occurred has seen many attacks.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said a knife was recovered
from the scene together with a farewell letter from the
teenager to her family quoting a verse from the Koran that
signed off with the word "shahida" - Arabic for martyr.

News Within the U.S.
He Violated Probation by Watching IS on CNN!
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A young man convicted of trying to
join the Islamic State group will remain in custody until a
judge decides whether he violated probation by watching a
documentary on terrorism.
Abdullahi Yusuf is one of nine men from Minnesota who were
convicted and sentenced last year for trying to join the
militant group in Syria.
The Star Tribune reports that Senior U.S. District Judge
Michael Davis found probable cause on Tuesday to keep the
21-year-old Yusuf in custody until a hearing next week.
Davis is expected to decide during that hearing whether
Yusuf's supervised release should be revoked.
Yusuf was living in a halfway house when a probation officer
recently informed the judge that Yusuf had admitted watching
the documentary on CNN.
Shias have Built their own religion in opposition to Islam.
Facts from Kaukab Siddique
The Shias and Agha Khanis [a branch of Shia] openly and
blatantly oppose the Qur'an.
For instance, the Qur'an refers to the DAUGHTERS of the
Prophet, pbuh. Shias insist he had only one daughter. In
this naked opposition to the Qur'an, they exclude the
daughters of the Prophet, pbuh.
The Qur'an refers to the WIVES of the Prophet, pbuh, as
AHLUL BAYT. [See Sura Ahzab].
The Shias insist that Ali and Fatima, r.a., are ahlul bayt.
The Qur'an does not even mention Ali and Fatima, r.a.
The Qur'an says Muslims should carry out SHOORA in all their
affairs [see Sura Shoora]. The shias again oppose the Qur'an
and claim that Allah appointed their imams! [nauzoobillah e
min zalik.] The idea of such appointment is from the Jew Ibn
Saba, Mukhtar and Bayan, all three of whom taught the
stories which are now called Shiaism.
Why did Allah reveal the Qur'an and send the last Prophet, pbuh?
On May 5, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the Juma' khutba and led
prayers at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore.
It had rained for 5 hours straight but it stopped an hour
before the prayers and the gathering was good.
The outline of this important khutba is given here for
distribution on line.
بَعَثْنَ فِي كُلِّ
And verily We have raised in every nation a messenger,
(proclaiming): Serve Allah and shun taghoot. Then some of
them (there were) whom Allah guided, and some of them (there
were) upon whom error had just hold. Do but travel in the
land and see the nature of the consequence for the deniers!
[The Qur'an 16:36]
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the
Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) observed: Verily
Allah forgave my people the evil promptings which arise
within their hearts as long as they did not speak about them
and did not act upon them. (Sahih Muslim. Book #001, Hadith
As compared to other religions, the acceptance of the ONE
God, Allah, has to be coupled with rejection of evil forces.
The kalima of Islam is "there is NO god except Allah."
Taghoot according to hadith and research of the Qur'an by
scholars, such as Maudoodi and Syed Qutb, are all those
powers from whom people seek guidance and leadership other
I used to wonder what Maudoodi meant by saying that Islam
is a revolution. After translating some of his writings, I
realized what he meant.
Islam is not a little bit of this and a little bit of
that. You must accept TAWHEED [that Allah is only ONE] and
not associate the authority of others with that of Allah
[which is shirk, a deadly sin].
We can't decide to pray without ablution or wudu, or pray
without standing in straight lines or without facing the
qibla [except in certain exceptional situations]. So, WE
DONT REFORM ISLAM. WE ACCEPT IT COMPLETELY AS IS.
We believe that Abraham, Moses and Jesus [peace be on
them] brought the Truth from Allah, but their is no Sunnah
or Sharia coming down to us from them. Whatever Allah wanted
us to know about them is in the Qur'an.
Jesus was given great miracles but that does not give any
Christian preacher the right to claim miracles. Moses was
given this huge miracle of the drowning of the Pharoah and
his army. But Jesus [p] got only 12 disciples. The people of
Moses [p] did not want to stand with him in battle.
Muhammad, pbuh, led a revolutionary movement of the entire
Liquor, gambling, pork, smoking, eating food without
Allah's name, are not allowed in Islam. We are not allowed a
little bit of this and little bit of that.
If we are weak, don't try to interpret Islam according to
our weaknesses. Non-Muslims should know that we don't drink
and don't eat pork because we are Muslims, not that I only
drink juice or I am a vegetarian.
The most important examples of taghoot which we must
reject are tyrants, dictators, kings, imperialists and
Zionists who try to impose their power and authority on
The Qur'an gives great importance to the rejection of
the tyranny of the Pharoah of Egypt. We must oppose such
rulers. There is absolutely no scope for cooperation with
We have FIVE prayers, one in each segment of our 24
hours. The satanic elements try to incite us to do wrong but
the prayers help us to reject the incitement.
Within us, the satanic tendencies are always there. That
is one reason why we
must not miss our prayers.
Maudoodi summed up the idea of revolution in the Islam
by teaching that ISLAM IS A COMPLETE WAY OF LIFE. The
Guidance for us is in the Qur'an, firstly, and then in the
After that come scientific research, technological
advancement, travelling for globalism and seeking the
oneness of humanity through travel and discovery within the
sacred norms of Islam.
Finally, remember that we cannot succeed as Muslims if
we do not choose spouses on the basis of Islamic awareness
Make du'a for compassion, generosity, Islamic spouses, unity
and opposition to oppression.
Invitation to Think from Br.Robert Solano
My 23rd Ramadan.
Confessions of an Adult Convert to Islam:
How Hadith Helped me to Understand much.
This month I will share with others my 23rd Ramadan as a
Muslim and the third one where I will have difficulty
fasting due to my diabetes and other complications. This is
very difficult for me emotionally although I know that in
cases like mine it is permitted to break the fast. Three
Ramadan ago I had to be rushed to the Emergency Room of our
local hospital and a brother who is a Muslim doctor at the
ER after some blood work determined that for my safety I
should not try to continue the fast. I learned of all the
other ways I can comply with the spirit of Ramadan and
maintain the fellowship with those at the Mosque. Without a
Hadith I feel I would had been lost in determining what
action to take. The same applies to my daily prayers. I now
pray more than five times a day although I cannot do it as
prescribed by Hadith since I also suffer from chronic
arthritis of both knees and legs. It might have to do with
the fact that I'm now 77 years old Alhamdallah.
The reason I'm publishing these facts this week is because
we should all appreciate the importance of Hadiths and their
correct function in Islam. Some people who I still consider
Muslims do not believe in Hadiths. They say it is not part
of Islam and they follow (so they say) only what they read
in the Qur'an. Others say "to each his own." I don't know of
any way to dispute the matter. It would be nice if some
person more knowledgeable than me would come up with
convincing arguments either to support my belief in Hadith
or why I shouldn't follow them at all.
A problem that some of us adult converts to Islam in the USA
is getting proper guidance and teachings. I spent most of my
free time as a child at the Public Library. There were
literally thousands of books. And I would read several pages
and then go to the next one. I never came across an English
translation of the Quran in a Library or anywhere else. Or
in any other language for that matter. I still suspect that
I was purposely kept from learning about Islam for at least
thirty years. Islam has been spread to the whole world and
it is the duty of every Muslim even visitors or immigrants
from other countries to spread the teachings of Islam. We
should let our coworkers, and those we go to school with,
know about Ramadan and the importance of it. Every human
should be introduced to at least the five pillars of

Corruption Leaks in Pakistan have uncovered Secularist
Ruling Class. No religious leaders involved.
by Ameer al-Azeem & Qaiser Sharif
LAHORE, May 7; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator
Sirajul Haq, has said the status quo was the product of
corruption and as long as it persisted, Zardaris, Nawaz
Sharif and Mushrrafs would continue to be born. He was
addressing a grand Ulema Convention at Tehmas Stadium,
Peshawar on Sunday.
Sirajul Haq noted that the Panama leaks, London leaks and
Dubai leaks did not include the name of any single religious
scholar and only the kith and kin of the past and the resent
rulers of the country were named in these scandals.
However, he said that the future of the country was linked
with Islam and not secularism or liberalism. The next
elections would be a fight between the slaves of the US and
the slaves of Muhammad and he was sure that the Ulema would
be in the vanguard of this fight and fully support the
JI provincial chief Mushtaq Ahmed Khan, Maulana Abdul
Ma'lik, Maulana Abdul Jalil Naqshbandi, also addressed the
Sirajul Haq said the unity of the religious forces was
essential fort the enforcement of the Shariah and added that
the JI was trying its best to bring the religious forces on
He said the country was facing serious threats and added
that along with the armed forces, the Ulema could also play
an important role for national defense.
Sirajul Haq recalled that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had
promised to him at the Rouza e Rasool in Madina to abolish
interest but later his government stood in support of
interest in the Federal Shariat Court. He said that interest
was a war against Allah and His Prophet and announced that
the JI would be at war against all those who supported
The JI chief said that it was due to the insensitivity of
the rulers that the country's borders were being attacked
every day by the enemy and the rulers were even afraid of
naming the enemy.
Sirajul Haq said that the JI on coming to power, would frame
such foreign and internal policies as would be in line with
our national interests and not advance the agenda of the
He was confident that the JI drive against corruption would
reach its logical end and the general public would bring the
plunderers to accountability in the next elections and
Pakistan would emerge as an Islamic, prosperous Pakistan

Native American Folk Tale
with Thanks to Sis.Kristi
A Native American grandfather talking to his young grandson
tells the boy there are two wolves inside of him fighting
one another. The first wolf is the wolf of peace, love, and
kindness. The other wolf is fear, greed, and hatred. " Which
wolf will win, grandfather?" asks the young boy. The
grandfather answered: " The one you feed".
Heavy Artillery used in Kabul-Pak Army clash

Pope's Visit to Support Sissi Shameful. Police Attacked by
On May 5, gunmen purportedly supporting IS attacked Egyptian
police in a upper scale area of Cairo. Egypt says 9 officers
were killed in the attack and 3 wounded.
The Pope's visit to Egypt has evoked much criticism among
Muslims. He did not condemn the crimes of General Sissi in
which several thousand Muslim demonstrators were killed in
pro-Morsi protests, thousands were injured and more
thousands arrested and still in prison after two years.
Instead the Pope was sad about the attacks on Coptic
Christians who have been actively supporting the regime of
General Sissi which most Muslims see as fascist and linked

Josef Mengele - the Creation of a Myth
by Germar Rudolf
May I ask my dear reader whether he or she recognizes any of
the following names:
Fritz Klein, Heinz Thilo, Bruno Kitt, Erwin von Helmersen,
Werner Rohde, Hellmuth Vetter, Horst Schumann, Carl
Clauberg, Hans Wilhelm König, Franz Lucas, Alfred
Trzebinski, Oskar Dienstbach, Siegfried Schwela, Franz von
Bodmann, Kurt Uhlenbroock, Eduard Wirths, Hans Münch, Johann
Paul Kremer, Horst Fischer, Friedrich Entress?
Unless you're an expert in the field, you probably have no
clue who these people are. The only name I would recognize,
if I were to turn off my expert knowledge, is Clauberg, and
that only because that was the name of my high-school art
teacher (first name unknown).
All the men listed above were at some point or other SS
physicians at the infamous Auschwitz Camp. I omitted one
name from the list, and that for a good reason, because that
name would give it all away: Joseph Mengele
Photo: SS officers at Auschwitz. From left to right: Richard
Baer, Josef Mengele, Josef Kramer, Rudolf Höss (From the
so-called Höcker Album, USHMM Archive)
Why is it that we all recognize this one name, but have no
idea about all the others? And with all, I am not just
referring to any of us. This all also includes Auschwitz
survivors. If we read or listen to the many testimonies of
the thousands of Auschwitz survivors, there seems to have
been only one evil person in that entire huge camp: Josef
Mengele. Almost every survivor mentions him as an evil SS
doctor sending people either to the gas chambers or
subjecting them to some cruel, senseless, torturous
experiments. Just as Auschwitz has become the symbol for the
Holocaust in general, so does Mengele symbolize the evil of
Auschwitz. They are synonymous. Why is that so?
Most of the above-listed individuals were arrested after the
war at some point and either committed suicide while
incarcerated or were sentenced to death or to extended
prison terms. Mengele escaped. He was never caught. In 1985,
years after his death in 1979 in his South-American exile,
however, his former whereabouts were revealed, his remains
eventually exhumed and identified. Mengele wasn't the
only Auschwitz physician who managed to escape, though. Hans
Wilhelm König was even better than Mengele. König
disappeared without leaving a trace. But no one has ever
heard that name, or have you?
We get an idea what the basis of the "Mengele Myth" is if we
listen to one of the most-determined Nazi hunters of the
world, the Israeli Efraim Zuroff. While hunting for Josef
Mengele during the 1980s, he stumbled upon the remarkable
fact that survivors immediately after the war did not
describe Mengele as the same evil criminal as he was
portrayed in the 1980s or even later. Sifting through
newsletters published right after the war by and for
"survivors," he came across the (false) news that Mengele
had been arrested in early 1947. On that occasion, survivor
newsletters asked their readers for incriminating
testimonies against Mengele, and such testimonies were then
even published. But, as Zuroff summarizes:
"The content of these articles proved quite surprising
because they clearly indicated that the Mengele of 1985, who
had become a symbol of evil and the personification of the
perversion of science, did not enjoy the same notoriety in
1947. [...Zuroff noted] that Mengele was not considered a
very high-ranking criminal [in 1947], nor was his supposed
arrest regarded as an event of exceptional significance.
[...] This notice was, in effect, the first indication that
the status of the infamous 'Angel of Death' had grown by
leaps and bounds over the years. [...Mengele was], in a
certain sense, not the same person who was simultaneously
hunted for in South America."
Of course, memories are more accurate a short time after an
alleged event than decades later, so the image survivors had
of Mengele in 1947 was most certainly more accurate as
In 1986, shortly after the hunt for Mengele had been over,
the Czech-German historian Zdenek Zofka wrote these
memorable lines about how Mengele had become the center of
attention of the Holocaust Industry:
"After the fortieth anniversary of the liberation of
Auschwitz and after the 'Mengele Tribunal' had been staged
on occasion of that anniversary in Jerusalem, the search for
Mengele was intensified drastically. The reward leading to
his capture was increased by the government of the German
state of Hesse from 40,000 to one million deutschmarks, and
the reward finally reached the staggering height of ten
million deutschmarks due to private donations. Along with
the intensified search for Mengele, the media's interest in
the case escalated as well. The 'Angel of Death of
Auschwitz' offered perfect opportunities for an incessant
flood of sensational news, and increasingly cruel and
shocking crimes committed by Mengele were revealed with
reference to witnesses. The mass murderer Mengele turned
into the evil incarnate as such, the outright superhuman
demon, as Robert Lifton writes."
Zofka's aim with his paper was an attempt to "correct the
image of Josef Mengele, which has been distorted and
exorbitantly exaggerated by the sensational media." He
admits that, when trying to assess the crimes allegedly
committed by Mengele, there is basically no documentary
evidence to rely on, and that relying on witness accounts in
such an atmosphere of hysteria is problematic, to say the
least. He continuous by stating: "All too often, it is
impossible to be sure that their [the witnesses']
recollections really refer to Mengele at all. It is all too
often possible to show that Mengele has been confused with
other SS physicians. Almost all the inmates state that they
were selected by Mengele on the ramp [to be sent to the gas
chamber]. But camp physicians performed the selections in
shifts; Mengele performed no more selections than any of the
others." (ibid., p. 246) This underscores the point I made
earlier. When assessing Mengele's purported crimes, we have
to distinguish three different sets:
Selecting inmates for the gas chambers.
Experiments with twins.
Random medical experiments.
Let's discuss all three of them here briefly, with reference
to further reading for those who want to learn more. Let's
start with the last one first, because it can be dealt with
Random Medical Experiments
There is "eyewitness" testimony galore about utterly
senseless, cruel experiments allegedly performed by Mengele,
like changing eye colors by injecting dye into an eye,
transplanting limbs and organs to random places in the body,
and other nonsense. While studying hundreds of "survivor"
testimonies, I've come across a good share of these insults
to the intellect, so insulting, indeed, that I will not
waste my time listing them here. Google the net, and you'll
stumble across these Halloweenish horror stories all over
the place. People evidently like to gawk at guts and gore,
so the survivors, protected from scrutiny by their aura of
sainthood, cater to that need. Interestingly, the alleged
victims of these experiments, quite frequently the very
witnesses telling these tales, show no signs whatsoever of
these cruel procedures. And it goes without saying that
there is not the slightest proof for any of it: no
documents, no autopsies, no medical examination on survivors
proving it. Nothing. It's all a pack of lies, sweet and
The alleged cruel experiments Mengele is said to have
performed with twins deported to Auschwitz were so lethal
that most of the twins he had enrolled in his research not
only survived the war, but were even able to form an
association in 1984, toward the peak of the Mengele
hysteria, which was meant to lobby for their and their
descendants' interests: Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly
Lab Experiment Survivors (CANDLES). Read and rethink the
association's name: How can deadly lab experiments have any
In fact, as Italian historian Carlo Mattogno has shown in
his paper on Mengele's twin research, there are three
facts which clearly prove that Mengele did not commit any
crimes on those twins:
All the surviving paperwork clearly shows that his research
was limited to anthropological and behavioral studies, but
did not include any surgical or other intrusive
All the twins enlisted for his research were enrolled in
that program for months on end, with none of them ever
dying. Most of those involved - the twins as well as
Mengele's inmate assistants - survived Auschwitz and the
war. Separately, think of that: Children are not supposed
to have gotten beyond the camp's railway ramp. Since they
were obviously unfit for labor, the Holocaust orthodoxy has
it that they were sent to the gas chamber straight away, but
that's evidently not what happened, not just with Mengele's
twin children, but in general. For the long list of twins
and children at Auschwitz who survived the camp, see
Which brings me to the final point: The selections at the
railway ramps near the Auschwitz Camp and (later) inside the
Auschwitz-Birkenau Camp. There can be no doubt that these
selections took place. They happened at Auschwitz, and they
happened at other German wartime camps as well. They were
usually performed by physicians, and it is safe to say that
Mengele, as one of the many Auschwitz physicians, was
ordered to do them as well.
But what were they about? Did those in charge, Mengele among
them, decide who got to live and who was to die in the
To answer this question comprehensively would require the
analysis of tens of thousands of documents that survived the
war. I'm not going to do this here, most importantly because
there is no need to reinvent the wheel. Others have done
that already, and I'll point the reader to them.
The issue boils down to two questions: Are there any
documents indicating that homicidal gas chambers existed at
What do the documents reveal about the purpose of
Regarding a., let me quote from an article published in late
2016 in the conservative mainstream periodical Taki's
Magazine. It was written by Jewish activist David Cole, who
in the 1990s was dabbling for a while in Auschwitz research.
In this Taki article, Cole, who believes in all other
aspects of the orthodox Holocaust narrative, explains why he
has problems with Auschwitz: "Ah, Auschwitz. Yes,
here's where we still have a problem. [...] there are
genuine problems with what is commonly claimed to be part 3
[of the Holocaust]—that in 1943 Auschwitz-Birkenau was
'renovated' to become an ultra-super be-all end-all
extermination facility. To me, the evidence just isn't
there, and the evidence that does exist calls that claim
into question. [...Orthodox historians] backed themselves
into a corner by putting Auschwitz, with its phony, postwar
tourist-attraction 'gas chamber' and its complete lack of
documentary evidence supporting a killing program, front and
center as the heart of the Holocaust. They're in so deep at
this point that they can't back off.
It's surprisingly easy to get the leading lights of
anti-denial to admit as much one-on-one. Rick Eaton has been
the senior researcher at the Simon Wiesenthal Center for
thirty years. He's as major a player in the fight against
Holocaust denial as anyone on earth. Two years ago, I
corresponded with him (under a pseudonym, of course... he'd
never speak directly with the likes of me!) regarding the
Auschwitz problem. I explained my thesis to him, that
Auschwitz, having various 'issues' that call the credibility
of extermination claims into question, should not be used to
represent the Holocaust. He agreed [...].
Keep in mind that even though I was using a pseudonym, I was
not falsely claiming to be anyone of note. In other words,
Eaton made that admission to a complete nobody, a total
stranger. One gets the feeling that many of these experts
are secretly longing for the day when they can be open about
the 'Auschwitz problem' and move past it [...]."
Fact is that challenging the orthodox Auschwitz - and
Mengele - narrative is a crime in many countries, and in
those countries where it is not, doing so will still turn
challengers into social pariahs. Hence, you won't hear a
word from any mainstream scholar about the fact that "the
evidence just isn't there." When scientists have to act
under the threat of legal or professional penalty, we can
neither trust them nor their research results.
All that remains are the studies of those who don't bend to
the pressure; who literally risk loss of life, limb and
liberty when publishing their iconoclastic research results.
I may point out two of those studies which can give the
reader a good overview as to why we have an "Auschwitz
The Real Case of Auschwitz by the already-mentioned Carlo
Mattogno. This thick volume of some 750 pages thoroughly
discusses all the relevant documentary evidence on those
buildings which are said to have contained homicidal gas
chambers. This is the main foundation upon which Cole based
his conclusion that the evidence for the existence of
homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz "just isn't there," and
that "the evidence that does exist calls that claim into
The Chemistry of Auschwitz, by, well, myself. This
440-page book summarizes the documentary situation
succinctly (which saves you having to read the 750 pages of
the first book mentioned) and forensically evaluates various
kinds of material evidence of the purported crime scene.
There are many more studies that could be listed, but the
interested reader can learn about them when perusing the two
works just mentioned.
The upshot of all these studies is quite simply that there
cannot have been any homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz.
The forensic and documentary evidence positively refutes
even the possibility of their existence.
This brings us to Point b. If the selections where not
designed to send people to the gas chambers, what purpose
did they serve? Well, if a camp received hundreds of inmates
in one swoop, what was the SS supposed to do? Just let those
deportees walk in and do whatever they pleased? Some kind of
admission procedure had to be in place where it was figured
out which deportee was to be lodged in which building in
which part of the camp, or who of them will even be sent to
another camp. Such an admission procedure happens in every
prison and camp in every country. That wasn't any different
at Auschwitz. Having physicians involved to assess the
health of incoming deportees makes sense, too. A detailed
analysis of the surviving documentation clearly shows in
this regard as well that there was nothing sinister or
unusual about those selections at Auschwitz.
But what about all those witnesses? Well, if we look into
witnesses who testified about their experiences with Dr.
Mengele right at the end of the war, before memories got
corrupted by the Mengele hysteria starting at the late
1970s/early 1980s, there is really only one witness saying
anything of substance: the Jewish physician Miklos Nyiszli
from Hungary, who for several months of his incarceration at
Auschwitz was the assistant of Dr. Mengele, if we are to
The late German mainstream historian and expert of Third
Reich history Prof. Dr. Werner Maser said about Nyiszli
simply that he "lied excessively." He didn't justify
this harsh assessment, however, because that would have
required citing the writings of heretics, which Maser didn't
want to do to prevent getting himself in trouble (so he
admitted to me). In his above-quoted paper on Mengele,
Mattogno gave a brief summary of the main reasons why
Nyiszli was indeed an imposter and excessive liar. The
reader interested in a thorough, 300-page critique of
Nyiszli's various tall tales in English will have to wait
until later this year, though, when a study dedicated to
this key witness is slated to appear.

English spell checker doesn't complain about. Like
blitzkrieg and Auschwitz, this term has become a fixed part
of the English language. What a proud legacy of a reviled
In Mengele's case, however, it is safe to say that this
isn't his fault. As Wikipedia writes correctly, quoting the
one book that was most influential in cementing the Mengele
"Rolf [Mengele, Josef's son], who had not seen his father
since the ski holiday in 1956, visited him there [in São
Paulo, Brazil] in 1977 and found an unrepentant Nazi who
claimed he had never personally harmed anyone and had only
done his duty." Mengele was a deputy of the Auschwitz
garrison physician Dr. Eduard Wirths. Wirths, in turn, was
celebrated by hundreds of Auschwitz inmates as a hero, as
the "Angel of Auschwitz" saving the lives of tens of
thousands of them with his selfless efforts to improve their
lot and to battle the epidemics reaping a gruesome harvest
at Auschwitz. Mengele was Wirths's right-hand man - in
the battle to save as many lives as possible of those whom
the authorities of the Third Reich had recklessly and
irresponsibly deported to Auschwitz.
Mengele was not just innocent of the crimes he is accused
of. Together with Eduard Wirths and the other physicians at
Auschwitz, his tireless efforts saved the lives of ten
thousands of inmates.
