 Dr Kaukab Siddique

David Irving, top Scholar of World War II.
Here are a few of my comments about his top-of-the-line books.

by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

I remember I was honored to meet David Irving in a "by invitation only" meeting when he visited Baltimore.

The old lion still roars but he has become very circumspect about his understanding of the Jewish Holocaust story.

He still insists that the Auschwitz narrative is fake but now he adds that Jews were killed in large numbers in Russia when Hitler's armies invaded the Soviet Union.

Mr. Irving is looking back at his life and the tremendous struggles he has won although he was hailed initially for his thousand-page book HITLER'S WAR.

The book did not contain anything about the Holocaust. His publisher questioned him and he stated very honestly that he had not found any documentable evidence on it.

A blow against the victors of the war was Irving's devastating research on the destruction of the south German city of Dresden by the British and American air forces [not unlike what happened in Syria and Iraq.]

His book on the attempt by Hitler's Deputy Hess to make peace with the British empire is simply brilliant.

The more Mr. Irving wrote, the more he was furtively isolated by international Jewry. He presented primary research on the life of Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda minister. There was no pro-Hitler or pro-Goebbels propaganda in it, nothing but hard core documentation written in superb English. To his chagrin Mr. Irving found that his publisher refused to publish his book on Goebbels though he had a signed contract. International Jewry had struck hard. The publisher didn't care about breaking the contract.

Mr. Irving tried to break out of the isolation imposed on him by his tormentors by taking one of them, a professor at Emory University, Georgia, to court for defamation. He faced an entire army of Jewish lawyers. Israel got involved to make sure he would lose. The British judge found against him although his point about lack of evidence on the Auschwitz story could not be refuted.

The pro-Israel groups have made it physically impossible for him to hold public meetings in America. His meetings in Berkeley and Chicago were physically attacked. So now he has to hold meetings with private announcements a couple of days before they take place. He faces a vicious enemy. He was in a state of shock when his daughter died and he received a wreath from his enemies, implying that she deserved it!

Mr. Irving continues to move on owing to his vast circle of friends in many parts of the world.

He is very popular in Hungary owing to his block buster of a book about the Hungarian uprising against Communist/Russian occupation. His meticulous research shows that the Hungarian Communists who supported Russian intervention against the working class uprising were Jews.[Simply a fact, not anti-Semitism.]

He was imprisoned in Austria owing to ONE sentence he expressed critical of the Holocaust. Censorship and self-hatred is the rule in Germany and Austria.

However, his attempts to back pedal by saying that Jews were slaughtered but that was in Russia by the SS against Hitler's orders may now get him into trouble with critics of the Holocaust.

I think Irving will be remembered more for his research on Winston Churchill rather than for his views on Auschwitz. It will be a while before people will read his inimitable Churchill books.

People who hate Irving have not read his books. A move against my job was made by the Zionist lobby in America when some of their agents targeted me as an Irving supporter. CBS invited me to discuss Irving on air. I asked the host: Have you read any of his books? He said : no! but I have other stuff. My answer: I have read his books and there is no point in discussing Irving with someone who has not read even one of his books. I can't educate you in half an hour when your prejudice is your main point.



Latest Gwadar News
December 10.

A rally of historic proportions took place in Gwadur after Friday prayers. In addition thousands of people came to join the rally from Karachi and other areas but were blocked by security forces.

The flood of protestors led by Maulana Hidayatullah
of Jamaate Islami condemned regime policies and demanded rights of local people and fishermen. The rally was strong on Islamic rights and condemned liquor, gambling and curruption in general.

Women and children in their thousands continued the "sit in" while the men rallied. Very disciplined and peaceful rally.

The government has arrested a Baloch leader who came to join the rally.

Jamaate Islami leader Maulana Hidayatullah in front of the rally could not be arrested as thousands blocked the security forces.

[A number of people have reported to New Trend, including Prof. Salim Mansur Khalid. BBC Urdu language has reported in detail. Hostile narratives have come from Daily Dawn]

JI Message [Excerpted]
Support "Give Gwadur its Right" Movement.
Kashmir vs India.


"Balochistan is rich of natural resources but the people are deprived of basic needs. The present and the former governments have failed to address the demands of the masses," said JI Emir Sirajul Haq while addressing a consultative meeting of the party's central leadership at Mansoorah on Wednesday.

Sirajul Haq, who reached Lahore on Tuesday night after two-day visit of Gwadar and Turbat, said the JI fully supported the "Give Gwadar its right movement." The local residents of Gwadar, he said, were protesting for their basic rights which were not illegal and unlawful. The government, he stressed, must listen to their demands.

Sirajul Haq said the government failed to bring improvement in overall law and order, expressing concern over rising incidents of women and child abuses in the country. He demanded effective laws and strict punishments to the elements involved in inhuman criminal acts. He said minorities living in Pakistan were most respectable and they should be ensured equal rights according to the constitution of Pakistan.

The meeting announced that JI would participate in the local bodies and general elections under its own flag and electoral symbol. The leaders rejected the PTI proposed electoral reforms and electronic voting machines, saying the ruling party had basically planned to rig the next elections through EVM which would only bring disaster in future politics.

The meeting expressed concern over continuous silence of international community on the increasing human rights abuses in Indian occupied Kashmir. It also expressed regret over the government attitude towards Kashmir cause. The Pakistani nation and the JI were standing shoulder to shoulder with the struggle of Kashmiri people to get rid of the Indian yoke.

Black is not Always Beautiful.
$100 million dollar gift from Bezos to Obama.

by Sis. Aisha
[Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

This is how bootlickers secretly sell their souls to the devil in plain sight!

According to the Community Cop Show, Jeff Bezos just gave $100 million to President Obama's Obama Foundation in the name of late Congressman John Lewis. Co-host Michael Greys said it was probably a kickback or payoff for Obama helping Amazon in some way during his administration.

Corporate gifts are tools used to control black organizations, "leaders," and politicians.

Co-host Noel Leader stated that black voters do not understand that black politicians are the biggest traitors to the black community He pointed out to viewers that many of these black politicians oversee the poorest, crime-ridden areas of this country yet, do nothing to improve them. These same politicians are given corporate grants or cushy corporate positions after leaving office.

Black politicians don't even defend each other. In the past, members of the Black Congressional Caucus have been eager to criticize Minister Louis Farrakhan and Dr. Khalid Muhammad for challenging Zionism. However, when white congressional members, Paul Gosar and Lauren Boebert, made threatening and insulting attacks against fellow members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar, none of these black congressional members said much nor fervently challenged these white congressional members.

A majority of these black politicians are Democratic Party members. Some black voters begrudgingly vote Democrat but that is because of poor leadership (and a defeatist mentality), which has voters feeling they are stuck in the same rut. They've been told that the only way to improve one's community is to either vote or depend on corporate grants (Great White Hope). These "actions" are traditional moves, which the Qur'an discourages (2:170). It does not help that masjids and black churches allow politicians to campaign there.

The $100 million donation looks innocent but, it is a sinister move. For instance, Bezos donated money to the Obama Foundation in the name of a civil rights activist. But, Michael Greys pointed out that if Bezos was so vehemently in favor of civil rights why not allow his Amazon employees to form a union? Unions protect the rights of their workers. Jeff Bezos is notoriously miserly, which is why he is the wealthiest man on Earth. According to Greys, Bezos did everything in his power to stomp out any union formation.

In addition to calling Bezos' donation a payoff, Greys said that these same corporations who contribute to political campaigns are the same corporations that control civil rights organizations, such as the National Action Network, Black Lives Matter, Congress for Racial Equality (CORE), NAACP, & the Urban League. He accused the leaders of these organizations of being millionaires as a result of these donations because they are in the civil rights business.

The Black Lives Matter agenda has been to get white corporations to contribute financially to black causes. The great educator Booker T. Washington was dependent on donations from white benefactors, such as segregationist Andrew Carnegie, and he encouraged Mary McLeod Bethune to do the same. He did not believe that black colleges would survive without white financial support.

I learned from New Trend editor Dr. Kaukab Siddique to be very selective with whom I accept monetary funds. At the time, he explained to me that he had been offered "gifts" from corrupt "Islamic" politicians overseas and refused them. To date, I have never met anyone with such strong convictions.

Allah warns us in the Qur'an against pleasing people (2:120). The oppressor wants you to be "You" but, according to his rules. He wants you to be Muslim but, according to his rules, not according to Allah's Will.

1971 Tragedy of East Pakistan.
Not Defeat but betrayal from Both Sides.

by Dr. Firoz Kamal

There was a huge betrayal of East Pakistan in 1971. It is a shame that the Pakistan Army -built with the money from both of its eastern and western wings worked only to protect West Pakistan. East Pakistan was left as a sitting duck only to be engulfed by a hungry wolf like India in collaboration with the separatist Bengali nationalists. Since the dismemberment of Pakistan was not mandated by any plebiscite, it was an obligation of the federal government to defend its eastern wing. But the government in Islamabad deliberately refused to discharge the duty. There are sound reasons to believe that it was betrayal.

In fact the ground was created with the full perfection for an easy surrender of the Pakistan Army in East Pakistan to the invading Indian Army. The fighters of Gaza strip could encounter the Israeli carpet bombing for more than 50 days in 2008 Israeli war but the Pakistan Army collapsed in 13 days. What cowardice! The dismemberment of Pakistan was indeed planned in Islamabad, and India worked only as a midwife.

Lt. Gen. A.A.K. Niazi - the commander of the eastern wing of the Pakistan Army who surrendered to the Indian Army writes in his book "The Betrayal of East Pakistan'" that the Pakistan Army in March 1971 had only 14 thousands soldiers in a land of 75 million of East Pakistan. Later on it was increased to only 45 thousand to face an Indian Army of about a half million and more than a hundred thousand Bengali insurgents. The Pakistan Air Force had only one squadron of outdated US sabre jets to face the most advanced version of the Soviet fighter jets. On the first day of the war, the Pakistan Air Force in East Pakistan was fully destroyed.

One can look at Indian preparation for the defence of the occupied territory of Kashmir. India has deployed six hundreds thousands of troops in Kashmir - a land of only 8 million. Therefore, what Pakistan did in 1971 was sheer neglect of the defence of East Pakistan by its central government .The East Pakistani Muslims will never forgive the West Pakistanis for this criminal betrayal. In the creation of Pakistan, the Bengali Muslims were in the frontline. Bengal was the birthplace as well as the bastion of Muslim League. But they were betrayed in a bad way. Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala will never forgive the West Pakistanis for such a disservice to Muslims and Islam. They already suffered the historic disgrace of being defeated by the Hindutva Hindus and by the shameful captivity of 97 thousand West Pakistanis in Indian prisons as POWs. Probably much more remains for the punishment of the great betrayal.

The Hindus could never get such a victory against Muslims in thousands of years of their history if there was no such blatant betrayal by the Pakistan government against its own people. Muslims never met such a disgraceful defeat at the hands of idolaters in their entire history. A retired Indian General H.S. Panag wrote on February 04, 2021 in the Print -an online Indian newspaper to explain how easily the Indian Army got the victory in 1971.

Gen. Panag claims that by all yardsticks, the 1971 Bangladesh war was India's greatest feat of arms and ranks high among the all-time great military campaigns in the annals of history. He says that it was the continuation of nine years of military reforms in leadership, training and equipment after the catastrophic defeat in 1962 war against China.

In 1971, India started war preparation after the political turmoil in East Pakistan in early March. India supported the insurgents since then and started the full war on December 3.

It appears that India's intense war preparation remained out of Pakistan Army's radar. The poor war preparation of the Pakistan Army reveals that. The alcoholic and womanising generals were not in a mood to defend Pakistan. Moreover the central government in Islamabad was not interested in defending East Pakistan from the day one of the creation of Pakistan. Their only worry was to defend West Pakistan. So the military enforcement, the cantonment building initiatives and the modern weapon installation were based only in West Pakistan.

In his interview with the Indian American journal India Abroad in February, 2004 Lt. Gen. Niazi said: "I was given a clear order from Gen. Yahya Khan -the President of Pakistan to surrender, because West Pakistan was in danger." The poor war preparation in East Pakistan with mere 45 thousands soldiers and one squadron fighter jet indeed ratified Lt. Gen. Niazi's claim.

Pakistan thus could add the most shameful and the ugliest chapter in Muslims' history. So the disgraceful defeat in 1971 owes not only to the betrayal of the Indian agent like Shaikh Mujibur Rahman but also to the betrayal of the West Pakistani civil and military leaders. Thus Pakistan proves to be a country of betrayal against Islam and its Muslim population. Pakistan is the only country in the world that was created in the name of Islam and to protect Muslims' lives and honour. The Pakistan Army showed its skill only to repeatedly occupy its own country and kill its own people. 11/12/2021

Narrated by Abu Huraira, r.a.:
The Prophet said,
"Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded; and gain strength by worshipping in the mornings, the nights."

Unexpected Truth from an Unexpected Source.

According to Trump, Netanyahu's congratulatory message to Biden came "very early. Like earlier than most. I haven't spoken to him since. F**k him."

Trump claimed that had it not been for him and his decision to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, Israel would likely have been destroyed by now.

"The decision to back out of the deal was because of my relations with Israel - not with Bibi. Those were my feelings towards Israel," he said.

"I'll tell you what," he continued. "Had I not come along, I think Israel was going to be destroyed...You want to know the truth? I think Israel would have been destroyed maybe by now."

Mentioning the Golan Heights and his decision to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan, Trump said that he played a major role in helping Netanyahu politically.

"Take the Golan for example ... That was a big deal," he said. "People say that was a $10 billion gift. I did it right before the election, which helped him a lot... he would have lost the election if it wasn't for me. So he tied. He went up a lot after I did it. He went up 10 points or 15 points after I [recognized the] Golan Heights."

Trump said he was "personally disappointed" in Netanyahu. "To do a tape to Joe Biden talking about their great, great friendship ... "They didn't have a friendship, because if they did, they wouldn't have done the Iran deal. And guess what? Now they're going to do it again. And if they do it again, Israel is in very grave danger," he argued.

Addressing his decision to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in 2018, Trump said: "The decision to back out of the deal was because of my relations with Israel - not with Bibi. Those were my feelings towards Israel."

"I'll tell you what," he continued. "Had I not come along, I think Israel was going to be destroyed...You want to know the truth? I think Israel would have been destroyed, maybe by now." the former president concluded.

Oh Allah, open a way for me to be patient and to maintain my salah in a timely manner, so that I can fulfill my obligation to You.

 Freedom for Uyghurs

December 9.
Broad based Tribunal Affirms China is Subjecting Muslims to Genocide

Courtesy The Guardian

The UK-based Uyghur Tribunal comprises lawyers, academics and businesspeople. It has no government backing or powers to sanction or punish China, but its organisers hope the process of publicly laying out evidence will compel international action to tackle alleged abuses against the Uyghurs, a largely Muslim ethnic group.

The tribunal's report says crimes including torture and the systematic suppression of births have occurred. Chairman Nice said China's treatment of the Uyghurs amounted under the Geneva conventions to an intent to destroy all or part of a group physically or biologically, a judgment he said largely rested on the suppression of births.

In response to the findings, a cross-party group of British MPs urged the Foreign Office to re-examine its refusal to join the Biden administration and declare a genocide in Xinjiang.

Nice said that although some Uyghurs had been killed in detention, there was no evidence of mass killings.

Those detained were instead largely freed after reindoctrination, Nice said, as part of a central government plan, ordered at the very highest levels, to reintegrate Xinjiang province and break up every aspect of Uyghur culture.

"Hundreds of thousands of Uyghurs - with some estimates well in excess of a million - have been detained by PRC [People's Republic of China] authorities without any, or any remotely sufficient reason, and subjected to acts of unconscionable cruelty, depravity and inhumanity," the tribunal's report says.

"Sometimes up to 50 have been detained in a cell of 22 sq metres."

The report says there is evidence that detainees have been confined in containers up to their neck in cold water, shackled by heavy metal chains and immobilised for months on end. It says some of the detained have been subjected to extreme sexual violence, including gang rapes and penetration with electric shock rods and iron bars. Women were raped by men paying to be allowed into the detention centre for the purpose, the report says.

The extreme intrusive capacity of the Chinese state, including mass coerced labour assignments, intense monitoring and face surveillance, means parts of Xinjiang have become a form of open prison, the report says.

The tribunal found evidence of enforced abortions, the removal of wombs against women's will, the killing of babies immediately after birth and mass enforced sterilisation through the insertion of IUD devices that were only removable by surgical means.

"Across the 29 counties with indigenous-majority populations for which we have 2019 or 2020 data, the birthrate has fallen by 58.5% from the 2011-15 baseline average," the report says. "In those counties that are over 90% indigenous, the birthrate fell at an even greater rate, showing a 66.3% decrease in 2019-20."

Hundreds of thousands Uyghur children have been taken from their families and placed in Han-ran boarding schools, burial grounds have been bulldozed or built over, mosques destroyed, and religious practice banned, it adds.

Nice said the tribunal would have been unnecessary if an international court had been asked by fearful governments to investigate the allegations, adding there was an obligation to know the falsity or truth of fellow human suffering and breaches of international human law.

He insisted the tribunal had been determined to apply universal standards, act on the basis of proof beyond reasonable doubt and make every effort not to be ill-disposed to communism or the Chinese Communist party.

The tribunal received no cooperation from the Chinese state, and instead some of its members have been subject to sanctions by the Chinese state, leading to their withdrawal from the process.

 Remember Prisoners

Mutulu Shakur
Black Panther Icon dying in Prison after 30 Years.

[Courtesy The Intercept]

MUTULU SHAKUR WAS not sentenced to die in prison, but die in prison he may. The 71-year-old icon of Black liberation struggle has been incarcerated for over three decades. The rules governing his 1988 sentencing set his presumed release date for 2016. Yet, despite an impeccable institutional record, he has been denied release by the federal parole commission nine times. He remains behind bars, while an incurable cancer is now spreading through his bone marrow.

Reforms and policy shifts in certain state parole systems, including New York's, have seen the long overdue release of a number of aging former Black Panthers like Herman Bell and Jalil Muntaqim in recent years. Held in the federal system, however, longtime prisoners like Shakur face further layers of institutional intransigence and procedural arcana.

Shakur, the stepfather of the late rapper Tupac Shakur, was convicted of racketeering conspiracy charges alongside a number of Black liberationists and leftist allies for his involvement in the 1981 robbery of a Brink's armored truck during which a guard and two police officers were killed.

He was also convicted for aiding in the prison escape of Assata Shakur.

"He has been praised by current and former Bureau of Prisons staff, and BOP's own assessment tools establish that he poses absolutely no risk."

A member of the Black nationalist organization Republic of New Afrika who worked closely with Black Panther Party members and New Left activists, Shakur was at the forefront of liberatory struggle. As a renowned acupuncturist, he was a central figure in the movement to bring holistic health care and self-determination to Black residents in the Bronx in the 1970s, blighted as the New York City borough was by police violence, poverty, and heroin addiction.

That landed Shakur in the crosshairs of the federal government's malicious COINTELPRO campaign to decimate racial and social justice movements.

Yet the demand for his release now has nothing to do with the political underpinnings of his arrest, trial, and conviction. If any party is displaying ideological excesses, it is the federal justice system apparently acting against its own standards in the case of a Black liberation elder.

"Dr. Shakur is a 71-year-old man who has been imprisoned for over 35 years, undergoing treatment for bone marrow cancer," Shakur's attorney, Brad Thomson of People's Law Office, told me. "He has been praised by current and former Bureau of Prisons staff, and BOP's own assessment tools establish that he poses absolutely no risk, should he be released."

SHAKUR IS AGING and ill. He has served his extensive prison time and has accepted full responsibility for his actions. Like other long-imprisoned Black liberation elders, including Mumia Abu-Jamal and Sundiata Acoli, the alleged grounds for Shakur's continued incarceration are without merit, even according to the purported logics of our brutal criminal legal system. The Department of Justice's own risk assessment tool categorizes Shakur at the absolute lowest risk of recidivism; the rates of reoffending for people in his age group are already vanishingly small.
