Hadith of the Week


Narrated Abu Huraira, r.a.: A man came to the messenger of Allah, pbuh, and said: Command me one thing so that I may fully understand it to be guided. The messenger, pbuh, said: Do not be angry. The man said: Give me more. The messenger said: Do not be angry. He said: Give me more: The messenger, pbuh, said: Do not be angry.

Leading Critic of the Holocaust narrative. My Interview with Germar Rudolf.

by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

 Germar Rudolf

A couple of days back I had the pleasure of interviewing Germar Rudolf, former researcher at the prestigious Max Plank Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, in Germany.

I had to remove the veils of misinformation and propaganda against Rudolf before I could have a reasonably good understanding of his research on the Jewish holocaust narrative. Here are a few facts which should help the reader to come with an open mind.

Rudolf was born 19 years AFTER the Second World War. So he did not serve under the Hitler regime in any capacity.

He is not a Nazi and has not been part of any Nazi group. He abhors the Hitler regime and is of the view that if he had been living under the Hitler regime, his strong affirmation of freedom of expression and the rights of the individual could well have put him in one of Hitler's concentration camps where he would have probably died like many other dissidents did.

Germar Rudolf was researching Chemistry at the Max Plank Institute and had no interest in issues related to the holocaust. One day he read a book by Rassinier and was taken aback by his denial of the popular holocaust story. He could not easily dump Rassinier's report because Rassinier was not a German but a French man who had fought against Germany as part of the French underground resistance movement.

Germar Rudolf applied his own scientific skills to the popular holocaust narrative and realized that its major points were myths rather than facts.

Rudolf does not deny the suffering of the Jews under Hitler and that they were placed in concentration camps as the Second World War unfolded as were many other groups and ethnicities. However, his research findings have made him the target of the Zionist hate machine. His main findings are

  1. The gas chambers are a myth.

  2. There was no policy to exterminate the Jews.

  3. The Six Million figure put out in the holocaust narrative cannot be substantiated.

He has noted that there are no German documents which would factualize the holocaust narrative. Survivor stories and memories of the victims' families have fed the holocaust narrative, and these are part of an oral tradition which often cannot withstand scientific analysis.

Rudolf had to pay heavily for his dissent. He lost his job and was forced into exile. The way he was "recaptured" is a story in itself. He was sentenced to a prison term, and after his release was the subject of intense poverty and isolation. He not only survived this ordeal but was able to continue his critical study of the Jewish story.

His research is heavily documented.

His work as a researcher, author, editor and publisher is best exemplified by the books and videos available at

He is now supervising CODOH [the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust].

Trial begins of 13 women who staged protests in Buraidah

MOHAMMED AL-SULAMI | Published — Wednesday 23 November 2016

JEDDAH: The Specialized Criminal Court in Riyadh on Tuesday began the first session to put on trial 13 Saudi women accused of incitement and participating in rallies and riots in Buraidah, in addition to burning the photo of a senior state official.

The session was held in the presence of the public prosecutor, two of some of the defendants' proxies, representative of the Saudi Human Rights Commission, and the media. The 13 accused women on trial were all absent as they are at large and not in detention.

The female defendants face several charges including incitement and participation in rallies and riots demanding the release of detainees involved in terrorist activities and crimes.

In March 2013, Qassim police arrested 161 people, including 15 women, after they refused to respond to instructions from authorities to end their illegally staged rally, despite attempts by security members for more than 12 hours to do so.

The accused were illegally gathered in front of the premises of the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution branch in Buraidah, in Qassim Province, in a bid to sway public opinion by exploiting the cases of a number of detainees involved in terrorist activities and crimes affiliated with deviant and terrorist groups.

The rallies led by these women continued for a whole month, and authorities tried with total tolerance and patience to deal with the women who raised banners demanding the release of the detainees and burned a photo of a senior state official. They also filmed these rallies and posted them on social media networks.

The women were arrested at the time and their case was referred to the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution, then to the court where they were released on bail.

Within two months of the incident, two of the women were arrested trying to leave the Kingdom and join Al-Qaeda terrorist group in Yemen. The women were passing through a mountainous area near the Saudi-Yemeni borders in Jazan region accompanied by six of their children, without the consent or knowledge of their guardians. They were referred to trial, and prison sentences were issued against them.

 Upcoming Events

National Day of Mourning
November 24

This year the Native American protests at Plymouth, MA, were bigger than usual, with about a thousand participants. Many people from the Blaxk community joined the march. Muslims were there too: Sis. Nadrat Siddique representing Jamaat al-Muslimeen, Sis. Karin Friedemann, a regular at the march, and Sis. Sumayya Haq Talab among others.

The National Day of Mourning is an annual protest organized since 1970 by Native Americans of New England on the fourth Thursday of November, the same day as Thanksgiving in the United States. It coincides with an unrelated but similar protest, Unthanksgiving Day, held on the West Coast.

The organizers consider the national holiday of Thanksgiving Day as a reminder of the democide and continued suffering of the Native American peoples. Participants in the National Day of Mourning honor Native ancestors and the struggles of Native peoples to survive today. They want to educate Americans about history. The event was organized in a period of Native American activism and general cultural protests. The protest is organized by the United American Indians of New England (UAINE). Since it was first organized, social changes have resulted in major revisions to the portrayal of United States history


 Dr Kaukab Siddique

What is wrong with the behavior of American masses including many Muslims on Thanksgiving Holidays? [Check the news from "Israel.]

On November 25 Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the Juma' khutba and led prayers at masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore, Maryland. [The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day in America. Hence the theme of this khutba.]

The masjid was packed with worshipers but it's a small masjid, so the outline of the khutba is given here for distribution On Line.

Text: "As for those who sell the faith they owe to Allah and their own plighted word for a small price, they shall have no portion in the Hereafter: Nor will Allah (Deign to) speak to them or look at them on the Day of Judgment, nor will He cleanse them (of sin): They shall have a grievous penalty." [The Qur'an 3:77]

  1. Islam allows us to eat and drink but does not allow us to be wasteful. Unfortunately food I being wasted in America on a huge scale.

  2. Many in America cannot afford nutritious food and millions globally are undernourished and near starvation. To be wasteful in such a situation is indeed sinful.

  3. The love of material things has taken over the lives of this nation. Nothing satisfies us. Even when all our needs are fulfilled we crave more especially in the area of technology which is constantly evolving.

  4. Sales of goods which we often do not require are projected through advertising which is often a sophisticated method of telling lies.

  5. Desire and craving is created through slick advertising which is often deceptive and manipulative.

  6. Americans see wealthy people as role models. The love our nation has for JZ, Oprah and other entertainers and sports people is linked to the wealth these people possess.

    Instead of looking for character, humbleness and modesty, the people are swayed by glitter and sexuality.

  7. The recent election campaign during which both sides blasted each other helped us to see that corruption and immorality has taken deep roots in America, There can be no longer any pretense of innocence and civilization.

  8. Muslims should focus on the Hereafter. Don't be surprised when suddenly this life ends and you forgot your accountability to your Creator.

  9. Notice what has been happening in occupied Palestine ["Israel"] during the last 4 days. Large areas are burning. About 80,000 people have been evacuated from Haifa where 700 homes have burned down. "Israel" had become very comfortable with its occupation of our lands.

    1. As usual American media are hiding the news from "Israel.".

      Let us study a few verses of the Qur'an every day and a few hadith so that we may be rightly guided.



India Trying to Starve Pakistan through Control of Rivers.
Jamaate Islami leader's Khutba

LAHORE, Nov. 25; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that Indian Prime Minister Modi wanted to stop river water flow to Pakistan to convert the country into a desert and it was to be seen what steps the rulers in Islamabad would take to protect the Indus Water Treaty.

Addressing Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque, he said that Modi wanted to plunge the region into war flames and had been threatening to stop river water to the country for quite some time but the rulers had done nothing to foil his designs.

Sirajul Haq however warned Modi that the people of Pakistan would prefer to fight than to die thirsty.

The JI chief said that the Pakistan rulers brought up by the west were out to destroy the Islamic identity of Pakistan. He said the people asked for food but the rulers talked of training them to dance.

He said the Supreme Court decision to review the Sindh High Court decision banning sale of liquor was incomprehensible. He said that hundreds of people had died in Sindh and elsewhere in the country by inhaling liquor. It was a matter of shame that while the minorities were demanding ban on liquor, the Muslims were unhappy over the ban.

Sirajul Haq said it was the constitutional responsibility of the rulers to facilitate the masses in leading their lives in accordance with the Islamic teachings. However, unfortunately, the rulers were promoting the attitude of revolt from Allah and His Prophet and were responsible for the growth of social evils. The society was fast heading towards obscenity and vulgarity. He said that marriage had been made something difficult while adultery had been made easy. He said this trend must be checked in order to save the nation from total destruction.

"We are proud of our noble traditions and values and Inshallah, the Islamic civilization and culture would prevail in the long run," he added.

Sirajul Haq was sure that the two day Workers Convention being organized by JI Sindh in Karachi from tomorrow would be the harbinger of the supremacy of Islam. He said that the drive against corruption was at its peak and the nation would soon witness the fall of the corrupt rulers.

He said the people of Sindh were trying hard to shake the hold of the feudal lords and vaderas. However, he said, that if they got freedom from the feudal lords, they fell in the hands of capitalists.

War News: Iraq: Week 6

Following Daily Bombing of Mosul, devastating retaliatory IS Bombing of Iranians near Karbala

The sixth week of the assault on Mosul was a complete failure of the Shiite armada to advance into Mosul. According to western sources, the Baghdad regime forces backed by US air strikes has a foothold on the eastern edge of Mosul but was not able to advance into the city.
Kurdish forces attacking from the north and Shi'ite militias attacking from the south too have been unable to advance up to Mosul.

The Shi'ite militias attacking Tal Afar south west of Mosul were driven back after mujahideen arrived from Rsqqa in Syria to help the defenders.

US air strikes have killed several more Islamic defenders of Mosul. Also the US has smashed two bridges into Mosul which the Islamic State uses to bring in supplies. The number of refugees from Mosul trying to escape the nightly bombing has reached 7500.

There have been several ISIS bomb attacks in Baghdad but the worst strike was on Iranians returning from a visit to Karbala. Here is the report:

Iranians hit hard.

On November 24, according to the BBC, 77 persons were killed and 32 wounded in a truck bomb attack 60 miles south of Baghdad. Those killed were mostly shias from Iran and Afghanistan.

Only ten of those killed were Iraqis. ISIL has taken responsibility.

Numerous reports indicate that tens of thousands Shia fighters from Iran and Afghanistan are fighting in Iraq against the Islamic State and in Syria against al-Nusra and other mujahideen groups.

Iran says that its fighters are defending Shia religious sites. It would appear that Shia fighters from Iran and Afghanistan come to Karbala on special occasions as pilgrims and seek inspiration from the graves of their saints to go to the battlefields.

The Islamic State is being pummeled in Mosul by the US air force and the Baghdad regime air force developed by the US. Unable to shoot down the jet bombers, IS uses truck bombs to hit Shia concentration points.

About 4 to 6 thousand Islamic State fighters are defending Mosul against a massive 100,000 Baghdad-Iran regime armada backed by US-Australian-British-French-Canadian air strikes. Of the defenders at least 250 have already been killed in US air strikes and Iranian long range artillery fire.. Several thousand Baghdad regime troops have also been killed and wounded but exact figures are not released by the Baghdad regime.

Iranian pilgrimage to Najaf-Karbala is seen by Islamic observers as a strategic replacement of Makka with Shia religious centers. The Iranians claim there are more pilgrims going to Najaf than to Makka for Hajj. Iran took the initiative after allegations that its pilgrims to the Hajj were mistreated by the Saudis.

Dakota Pipeline Protesters Vow to Stay Despite Army Corp of Engineers [NBC November 26]

Dakota Access Pipeline protesters vowed Saturday to remain in their camp after the Army Corps of Engineers told them to leave the federal land they've occupied.

Activists protesting the continued construction of the pipeline were told to shut down one of their camps by Dec. 5 in a letter sent to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's leader by the Army Corps.

But tribal leader Dave Archambault and other protest organizers made it clear that they planned to stay in the Oceti Sakowin camp — one of three camps near the construction site — which would have been shut down by the encampment.

"We are wardens of this land. This is our land, and they can't remove us," protester Isaac Weston, an Oglala Sioux member from South Dakota, told The Associated Press on Saturday. "We have every right to be here to protect our land and to protect our water."

Protesters said the request would only escalate tensions.

 Dakota Pipeline Protesters

Citing increased violence between protesters and law enforcement and the increasingly harsh winter conditions, the Army Corps said it decided to close its land to the protesters who have been there since early April.

Col. John Henderson, the Army Corps' district commander, asked Archambault in a letter to tell members of his tribe, along with supporters there, to move from the property north of the Cannonball River.

Henderson said the decision was made to protect the public from violent confrontations between law enforcement and protesters, who call themselves "water protectors," as well as the "harsh North Dakota winter conditions."

The letter was sent after a protester's arm was severely injured by a concussion grenade that protesters contend was thrown by local law enforcement. Police also sprayed protesters with a fire hose in near-freezing conditions.

The free speech zone the Army Corps has proposed south of the Cannonball River is slightly more than 41 acres and provides clearer jurisdiction for police, fire and medical units.

The letter makes it clear that the land will be closed to the public and that anyone who enters it will be considered trespassing and could face prosecution under federal, state and local laws.

Saturday, two prominent North Dakota politicians said the onus was on the federal government to close the camps.

"Our state and local law enforcement agencies continue to do all they can to keep private property and public infrastructure free from unpermitted protest activities, and it's past time that the federal government provides the law enforcement resources needed to support public safety and to enforce their own order to vacate," Gov. Jack Dalrymple, a Republican, said in a statement.

Republican Sen. John Hoeven also urged protesters to "respect the law and peacefully leave" the protest area.

"The well-being and property of ranchers, farmers and everyone else living in the region should not be threatened by protesters who are willing to commit acts of violence," he said in a statement.

Meanwhile, a number of Bismarck-Mandan residents held a rally to "Back the Blue" on Saturday.

More than 400 people attended the rally to support those law enforcement officers who had been dealing with the protests. The demonstration wasn't in support of or opposed to the pipeline, organizers told NBC station KFYR of Bismarck.

"We want our communities back. We want unity. We don't want division," said Kayla Wolf, an organizer of the protest.

Bismarck police arrested more than 30 people at a mall Friday for alleged criminal trespassing involving the protesters. About 100 protesters had gathered to generate a prayer circle, which police said disrupted Black Friday shopping.

The protests — which have continued since April and are now the largest American Indian protest in modern history — stem from a continued demonstration against a 1,170-mile oil pipeline.

Thousands of people have flocked to North Dakota to aid the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, who believe the pipeline could contaminate their water source, the Missouri River, and desecrate the tribe's sacred sites.

The company behind the pipeline, Energy Transfer Partners, says that it has taken measures to prevent such leaks, that the pipeline is far safer than transporting oil with trucks or trains, and that there is no archaeological significance to the area.



Censorship of Dissent in Germany.
How the authorities Protect the Holocaust Narrative from Criticism.

Government censorship in Germany is divided in two parts. The first is designed to protect "minors" from inappropriate material, while the second is designed to protect "public peace" (read: the government) by suppressing ideas that may incite sections of the population from engaging in seditious thoughts, feelings or actions.

The first part of German censorship is supervised by a government agency which keeps a list of "indexed" media (writings, videos, audios, website etc.). Items listed on it may not be made accessible to minors. This includes pornography, depictions of violence and cruelty, and any political or historical material deemed confusing to minors (broadly speaking: politically "incorrect" material). The latter category allows withholding any historical or political material the government considers offensive from the free market. Offenders making indexed items generally accessible can get fined or up to one year imprisonment.

The second part of German censorship is enforced by courts of law. If they decide that a public expressions (by word, text, audio, video etc.) is able to threaten public peace, punishment of the offender(s) ensues. If any data is involved (text, audio, video etc.), they order it confiscated and destroyed (books are burned, etc.). Individuals creating, selling, storing, disseminating, importing, exporting or otherwise making accessible or preparing the access to confiscated items -- both before and after a court decision declaring them illegal -- can be fined or imprisoned up to five years. The German federal list of confiscated items is kept secret, hence citizens cannot know what is illegal to disseminate.

Public expressions disputing the orthodox Holocaust narrative are considered a threat to public peace, and as such are automatically considered illegal in Germany. If a court case arises about such a public expression, any defendant is prohibited under the threat of prosecution from trying to prove the accuracy of his or her claims disputing the orthodox Holocaust narrative. In other words: in Germany, any defense in the matter itself is prohibited under the threat of further prosecution. The logic behind this is that any attempt to prove in a court of law that offensive viewpoints are accurate amounts to yet another offense of "denying" the officially ordained truth in a public setting (a public trial), hence another threat to public peace.

Germany thus ostracizes doubts, bans critical questions, prohibits scrutinizing research. The core of our humanity, though, is that we can doubt our sense; that we can ask critical questions; that we can search for the truth behind the semblance; and that we can communicate our findings with other. That is what distinguishes us profoundly from animals, who cannot do any of this. In fact, these skills are the core of our humanity. Hence, Germany is outlawing humanity.

The German law outlawing dissent on the Holocaust issue is a special law prohibiting only certain views on merely one minor aspect of world history. It is a blatant violation of the German constitution which bans special laws. Nevertheless, the German Federal Constitutional High Court has declared this special law admissible, because in special cases serving special needs, special laws are permissible as an exception, so the court. The reasoning behind it: Because Germany once persecuted minorities, imprisoned dissidents and burned books (during the Third Reich), it today has an obligation to persecute minorities, imprison dissidents and burn books (because that is what they do), allegedly in order to prevent that it "happens again." And so it happens again under our very eyes...

With this decision, the highest German court has turned into an usurper and thus enemy of the German constitution, outlawing the very core of our humanity. As a consequence, no German citizen owes it any loyalty anymore. Resistance has thus become obligatory.
