Banned books vs popular books.

A Comparison of how Churchill is a hero in America despite what he did to German civilians.

by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

Books about sex, conspiracies, perversions and now lgbtq achieve widespread popularity. The same is true in movies and late night comedies.

Americans are seldom allowed to know what their government and its allies are doing both here and overseas.

Let's take the case of David Irving which has long been forgotten.

Who would have thought that in an era of worldwide propaganda about democracy and freedom of expression, a distinguished historian, David Irving, would be arrested in Austria, a self-proclaimed bastion of freedom!

When Irving was sentenced to three years in prison for having expressed doubts about the war, years back, about the Jewish story of the "holocaust," one would have expected "Great" Britain to protest. After all Irving is a loyal British citizen! But the British government showed no concern at such a gross violation of the rights of one of its eminent citizens.

Not only that, the British press and even the BBC went into a wave of ecstatic self-congratulation at the humiliation of this man of letters. The question arises: Why such inhumanity, why such crass joy at the suffering of a scholar?

The answer lies in the monumental research work Irving carried out on Winston Churchill, the man whom the British and many Americans consider the hero of the Second World War.
Irving found documentary evidence, from the original, often hitherto classified, diaries and government papers which shows that Churchill was a coward and a fraud. Not only that, Churchill was a mass murderer who crafted the policy of area bombing of German cities, aimed at the annihilation of German civilian populations.

Irving also discovered evidence that Churchill was a great ally of the Zionist movement, though sometimes he played fast and loose with his Jewish friends. Often, if not always, with Churchill was his closest adviser, especially in the bombing of civilians, Lord Cherwell, a Jew who was nicknamed 'the Prof,' a Jew from Alsace whose real name was Friedrich Lindemann. [Irving provides a photo of the 'Prof.']

Before we note Irving's documentation of the genocidal bombing of German cities by Churchill, let us look briefly at what the British air force did to civilians who were NOT German but needed to be killed because they were close to German military-related installations in Europe. This kind of mass killing is very relevant to understanding what happened in Iraq , because it appears that Churchill's policies of mass murder of civilians were quickly picked up by the allies of the British, the Americans.

Here is an instance of the slaughter of FRENCH civilians by Churchill's air force. Remember that French public opinion was not all anti-Hitler and pro-British as is often made out to be in the popular media of our times.

In March 1942, the British air force killed more than 500 French men, women and children at Billancourt in northern Paris while ostensibly bombing a German weapons factory, and seriously injured more than 1,000 French civilians. France declared a day of National Mourning on March 7. USA had an embassy in Vichy France [which was allied to Germany] and the US embassy too lowered its flag.[1]

Irving gives other instances of the slaughter of non-German civilians who were friends of the Germans, and then he gives instances of the incineration of entire German cities by the British and the U.S.

This was not British hatred or a war related tactic. It was pure and simple GENOCIDE well-thought-out and programmed by Winston Churchill, as documented by Irving.

Do other historians, allied to the victors, provide instances of British and U.S. bombing of civilians allied to or living near the Germans? Very seldom, and then only as mistakes [what the U.S. called 'collateral damage' in Iraq.]

Max Hastings, for instance, mentions the bombing of the Hague in Holland by the British air force on March 3, 1945. Buried deep inside a paragraph on page 415 of his book we find the information that the British air raid on the Hague "killed 511 people and destroyed 3,250 houses" and made 12,000 people homeless. After making various excuses for the raid, the writer concedes without further discussion that "Misdirected Allied bombs caused the deaths of substantially more people in the nations of occupied Europe than the [German] Luftwaffe killed in its blitz on Britain." [2]

The difference between Irving and Hastings is that Irving's research unearthed the Churchillian policy of mass murder of civilians. Note that we have not yet reached the discussion of the destruction of German cities. [To be continued]

2000 Islamic Volunteers Tackling Countrywide Floods

Taunsa/DG Khan: August 22: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has called for ceasefire between federal and Punjab governments, appealing them to pay attention on flood hit areas.

Talking to local journalists here on Monday, he said the rain waters washed away villages in southern Punjab, making thousands homeless waiting for the government aid.

But, he added, the rulers were engaged in fights for self-interests, abandoning the people. He said it was not the first-time rulers left alone the masses in need. Public welfare had need been on the agenda of the ruling parties, he added.

He said the prime minister and Punjab chief minister should be present among the affectees instead of sitting at their luxury offices.

He said the PTI chairman held public meetings in twin cities, ignoring the people of the two provinces where his party was in power. He said the government must ensure the dispatch of food and other items in the flood hit area or the JI would hold sit-in in front of the PM and CM offices in Islamabad and Lahore.

Sirajul Haq, who is on three-day visit to southern Punjab since Sunday to express solidarity with the calamity hit people, had also visited Balochistan few days ago. He told the journalists that rain waters made thousands homeless in 27 districts of the province. "People in Balochistan are also waiting for government help," he said.

He also appealedto the armed forces to spend their maximum resources to provide relief to the poor masses. He said if the leaders of the ruling parties were unwilling to leave their bungalows and office then they should provide the state resources to the JI for relief activities.

"Over 2,000 workers and volunteers of the JI and al-Khidmat Foundation are busy in relief activities alone in southern Punjab. We have the capability to serve the masses. Provide us resources if you (rulers) do not want to go there."

He appealed to the public for donations and funds for flood relief activities.

Deadly clashes broke out between rival Libyan militias in the centre of Tripoli with the sound of gunfire echoing through the heavily populated part of the capital city threatening two years of relative peace.

The violence on Saturday comes in the wake of a build-up of rival forces in Tripoli over the past week as they jostle for power while the North African country remains divided between rival administrations in the east and the west.

The younger Deby, 38, has initiated talks with various rebel groups who have long challenged his father's regime.

At least 40 rebel and opposition factions signed a peace pact with Chad's transitional authorities last week, agreeing to talks that are scheduled to begin on Saturday.

However, the most powerful rebel group, the Libya-based Front for Change and Concord in Chad (FACT), which threatened to march on N'Djamena last year, has refused to participate in talks, saying negotiators did not listen to its demands.

The Pope Apologizes

At the start of the week, the pope apologised for the first time in Canada for residential schools, the forced-assimilation institutions rife with abuse that more than 150,000 Indigenous children were obligated to attend for decades between the late 1800s and 1990s.

"I humbly beg forgiveness for the evil committed by so many Christians against the Indigenous peoples," he said during an event on Monday in Maskwacis, near Edmonton in the western province of Alberta, describing the effects of the institutions as "catastrophic".

 Very Personal

Very Personal

by Kaukab Siddique

Dear readers of New Trend
I seldom if ever write about my self.
I want to share this with you.
I had major surgery of hernia on August 16, and then another one for follow up on August 24.

The anaesthesia for this second one was heavy and it took me a whole day to get out of the fog of this second one.
I am steadily improving owing to the love and care of my dear and near ones.

America's medical technology is very advanced but for recovery one needs loving care, compassion and kindness.

I am surprised that so many people wrote messages of sympathy and support for me. I have been so critical of just about everyone that I am "floored" by this kindness.

May Allah bless you all.

Why Do Israelis Fear Palestinians?

To my mind, Israel's hatred of the Palestinians is shaped and driven by three basic sentiments: fear, envy and anger.

Fear is a major factor - it can be irrational but also instrumental.

It should come as no surprise that Israel has continued to fear the Palestinians well after it occupied all their lands and became a mighty regional and nuclear power. Because its fear of the Palestinians is not merely physical or material, it is existential.

Under the apt title: Why all Israelis are cowards, an Israeli columnist wondered in 2014 what kind of a society produces cowardly soldiers who shoot unarmed
Palestinian youth from a long distance.

Some four years later, in 2018, it was indeed surreal to watch Israeli soldiers hide behind fortified defences as they shot hundreds of unarmed protesters for days on end.

Toronto Students Support Uighur Muslims of China

On July 26, the University of Toronto Students' Union (UTSU) released a statement titled "Solidarity with Uyghur Students." In the statement, the UTSU affirmed its support for Uyghur Muslim students at U of T and condemned the Chinese government's persecution of Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang region of China.

In the 1990s, the Xinjiang region, an autonomous region in China, experienced a wave of separatist activism, resulting in the Ghulja massacre in which hundreds of peaceful protesters were allegedly shot by Chinese military forces. The Chinese authorities blamed the Uyghur population — which accounts for more than 40 per cent of the region's population — for the protests.

Since then, Chinese authorities have kept the region under strict surveillance.

The Chinese authorities have reportedly forcibly relocated over a million Uyghur people to "re-education camps" and imprisoned thousands of others. While the Chinese government denies these allegations, numerous documents leaked in May 2022 detail the illegal detention of the Uyghur people by Chinese authorities.

In January 2021, the United States declared that China's persecution of Uyghur Muslims constitutes genocide.
UTSU's statement

The UTSU statement reads, "The UTSU stands in solidarity with Uyghur Muslim students facing discrimination, harassment, unsafety, separation from relatives in concentration camps, and in exile from their homeland East Turkistan."

The union urges the U of T community to take action against China's treatment of Uyghur Muslims.

Additionally, the union demands that the university diligently work to "ensure that it does not purchase or use goods from foreign and domestic companies that directly or indirectly contribute to human rights abuses against Uyghurs." The statement specifically refers to major North American fashion retailers that have been accused of buying cotton produced by forced labour in Xinjiang.

The statement concludes by calling other U of T student bodies to foster a "welcoming space for all students from marginalized backgrounds, and to pay attention to and support Muslim students feeling unsafe due to their ethnicity."

UTSU's future advocacy plans and demands

In an email to The Varsity, UTSU President Omar Gharbiyeh discussed the union's statement.

"The UTSU has a duty to ensure that these students feel welcomed, safe, and acknowledged on campus," wrote Gharbiyeh.

Gharbiyeh acknowledged that some may question the pertinence of global events for a student union, but Gharbiyeh believes that it is the UTSU's responsibility to "advocate for justice globally."

According to Gharbiyeh, the union anticipates more advocacy initiatives as part of its commitment to stand with Uyghur Muslims. "This is the first concrete statement our institution has made on the issue, but we are in the process of articulating and designing a more fulsome and robust response throughout the coming year, particularly through our equity-related events and programming."

Gharbiyeh also shared several actions U of T could take to support Uyghur students. He believes the university should boycott companies "benefiting from Uyghur forced labour," provide support to students experiencing displacement, and ensure that the Chinese persecution of Uyghur Muslims is covered in the university's curriculum.

Additionally, Gharbiyeh believes that the university should condemn China's persecution of Uyghur Muslims.

Gharbiyeh concluded, "Making spaces accessible, implementing anti-racism, gender-based violence, and equity policies and holding one another accountable is essential to fostering a welcoming environment."

 Remember Prisoners

Rate of conversion to Islam in Prisons.
30,000 to 40, 000 every year.

Professor Lawrence Mamiya of Religion and Africana Studies argues that Islam's appeal in prison is partially due to the spiritual and theological dimensions of the religion (such as brotherhood along with racial and social justice)[16] as well as the social aspect (such as protection and communal life) it provides the inmate.[11] J. Michael Waller, senior analyst for Strategy at the far-right Center for Security Policy, claims that 80% of the prisoners who find faith while in prison convert to Islam.[22]

He also claims that Muslim inmates comprise 17-20% of the prison population in New York, or roughly 350,000 inmates in 2003. Independent studies show similar rates within prisons in the upper Midwest (in urban areas such as Chicago, Detroit, and Cleveland) and on the West Coast (in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles).[11]

These converted inmates are mostly African American, with a growing Hispanic minority.[23] According to a 2003 estimate by FBI, there are 350,000 Muslims in federal, state and local prison, about 30,000 - 40,000 more being converted every year.[15][24]
