Freedom of Expression to Insult Islam By Latheef Farook

Jail sentence for Holocaust deniers

Is there a hidden force which is putting the Christian West against Muslims worldwide? This is the question now being asked in many knowledgeable circles in the West, the Middle East and the East as well.

Worldwide angry demonstrations against the American film ”The Innocence of Islam” , produced by an Israeli Jew, which insulted Islam’s Prophet Muhammad(PBUH)  and provoked Muslims with devastating consequences could have been averted if only the American government hadbanned it.

President Barack Obama  refused to ban the film or the New York subway adds on the grounds that “Freedom of Expression” is constitutional right. However questioning Holocaust is a punishable offense in the US and many countries in Europe despite boasting of freedom of expression.

Days after this film triggered worldwide unresttheFrench magazine Charlie Hebdo’s outrageous cartoon insulting Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) represented a new assault against Islam and Muslims.The timing of the publication of these utterly crude and offensive caricatures raise questions about a possiblehidden forcemanipulating the West against the Muslim world.

Adding fuel to fireadvertisements denigrating Muslims as savages started appearing in New York subway stations, a city dominated by Jews, sinceMonday 24thSeptember.These adds, paid for by two hate Muslim groups, the American Freedom Defense Initiative and Stop the Islamization of America,  read ”"In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad,”.

Thus the so called freedom of expression is sheer hypocrisy and double standard especially in the context of US and European governments denying by law this very same right to“Holocaust” deniers.TheUS and many European countries madeit punishable crime by law to question Holocaust.

For example in January 2006 the far rightwing Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published a caricature insulting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. The journalist involvedwas Islam-hating Ukrainian Jew, operating under the name of “Fleming Rose” with close working relations with Israel’s far right forces. 

There were worldwide outrage and violent demonstrations by Muslims resulting in deaths.Yet demonstrating their outright contempt for Islam and Muslims, newspapers across Europe from Norway, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Iceland and Hungary published these caricatures.

The Danish government not onlydefended the publication but also refused to meet delegations from Muslim countries to discuss the matter. However Denmarkthought offreedomexpreconciliation only when Danish embassies came under attack and the economy started to bite with the boycott of Danish goods by   Muslim countries. The World Socialist website noted that: “the basic lie and justification for publishing these caricatures is the claim that the conflict is between free speech and religious censorship, or between Western enlightenment and what they think as Islamic bigotry.

The truth is that this organized anti-Muslim campaign has been exploited to prepare public opinion for new wars against Muslim countries. Protests and demonstrations in the Muslims world   were featured by the Western media to create an intended fear and apprehension against Muslim countries and Muslim minorities in Europe.

The promulgation of such bigoted garbage is, rather, bound up with a shift by the European ruling forces to line up more squarely behind the neo-colonial interventions of United States imperialism in the Middle East and Central Asia. This is the reason why it is no accident that it occurs in the midst of the ongoing slaughter in Iraq, Afghanistan, occupied Palestine, Libya and now Syria and many other countries eventually aimed at military aggression against Iran.

On the other hand there has been a blanket ban on   publishing anything questioning the holocaust.

The Jewish controlled western media made the world believe that the holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.

However many leading historians and others claim that the Holocaust is a lie invented by the Jews to obtain financial compensation from Germany and to win international sympathy for the creation of the State of Israel in the lands belonging to Palestinians.A leading newspaper of neutral Switzerland, the daily Baseler Nachrichten, carefully estimated in June 1946 that no more than 1.5 million European Jews could have perished under German rule during the war.

Some historians denied that six million Jews were killed by German dictator Adolf Hitler.British historian David Irving, perhaps the greatest authority on the Nazi era,said that “Without Hitler, the State of Israel probably would not exist today. To that extent he was probably the Jews' greatest friend”. 

About seven years ago DavidIrving was imprisoned in Austria for statements made on Holocaust 16 years before.At a press conference after his release, he reportedly endorsed the comment of Mel Gibson that "the Jews" are responsible for all the wars in the world.


Mark Weber said in the IHR Newsletter, May 1989 that ;"Don't for a minute think that indoctrinating wide-eyed school children with the lies and slanders against Germans, Slavs, Catholics, Christians, Europeans and whites in general isn't a primary purpose of the Holocaust-mongers. … The Holocaust is a religion. Its underpinnings in the realm of historical fact are non-existent — no Hitler order, no plan, no budget, no gas chambers, no autopsies of gassed victims, no bones, no ashes, no skulls, no nothing…. Secondly, it's a religion for losers…. Suffice it to say that the rise of religions such as this generally coincides with the decline and fall of nations which tolerate them."

Today“holocaust denial”  is illegal in US and a number of European countries .Many countries also have broader laws that criminalize genocide denial. Of the countries that ban Holocaust denialAustriaGermanyHungary, and Romania, were among the perpetrators of the Holocaust, and many of these also ban other elements associated with Nazism such as Nazi symbols.

Speaking on behalf of the"Concerned Parents of German Descent," 1981,Ernst Zündel said;"The mere fact that you belong to a certain ethnic group makes you eternally guilty, according to the twisted logic of Zionism. If Germans who were not even born before 1945 must pay reparations to the State of Israel, which did not exist until 1948, then you can be included in the Zionist racket of reparations and revenge."

These countries which declared holocaust denial illegal include  Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina ,Czech Republic, France ,Germany, Hungary,Liechtenstein,Lithunia,Luzemburg,,Netherlands,Portugal,Romania,Spain,Switzerland,European union. Some countries such as Austria holocaust denial may result   up to twenty years imprisonment.

Under these laws itis a crime to challenge the Holocaust story. Revisionists in France and Germany have been heavily fined for their views. Teachers in the US and elsewhere have been summarily dismissed from their positions for daring to doubt the Holocaust story. Criminal thugs have brutally attacked prominent Holocaust revisionists; one was even killed for his views.

In spite of desperate restrictions on free speech, frantic media attacks against those who "deny the Holocaust," a seemingly perpetual Holocaust media campaign, and even physical attacks, considerable headway is being made. More and more thoughtful people in the US and around the world are willing to express doubts about at least some of the more sensational Holocaust claims.

Historians who oppose such laws include Raul Hilberg,Richard J. Evans, and Pierre Vidal-Naquet. Other prominent opponents of the laws are Timothy Garton Ash,Christopher Hitchens, Peter Singer, and Noam Chomsky. These laws have also been criticized on the grounds that education is more effective than legislation at combating Holocaust denial and that the laws will make martyrs out of those imprisoned for their violation.

Even today, the stream of Holocaust films and books show no sign of diminishing. This relentless media campaign, which Jewish historian Alfred Lilienthal calls "Holocaustomania," portrays the fate of the Jews during the Second World War as the central event of history. There is no end to the heavy-handed motion pictures, the simplistic television specials, the vindictive hunt for "Nazi war criminals," the one-sided "educational courses," and the self-righteous appearances by politicians and celebrities at Holocaust "memorial services." 

Britain's chief rabbi, Immanuel Jakobovits, has accurately described the Holocaust campaign as "an entire industry, with handsome profits for writers, researchers, film-makers, monument builders, muse-um planners and even politicians." He added that some rabbis and theologians are "partners in this big business." 

The perpetual Holocaust media blitz is routinely used to justify enormous American support for Israel and to excuse otherwise inexcusable Israeli policies, even when they conflict with American interests. 
The sophisticated and well-financed Holocaust media campaign is crucially important to the interests of Israel, which owes its existence to massive annual subsidies from American taxpayers. As Prof. W.D. Rubinstein of Australia has candidly acknowledged: "If the Holocaust can be shown to be a `Zionist myth,' the strongest of all weapons in Israel's propaganda armory collapses."


One major reason that the Holocaust story has proven so durable is that the governments of the major powers also have a vested interest in maintaining it. The victorious powers of the Second World War — the United States, Soviet Russia and Britain — have a stake in portraying the defeated Hitler regime as negatively as possible. The more evil and satanic the Hitler regime appears, the more noble and justified seems the Allied cause.

In an article entitled “WAS THERE REALLY A HOLOCAUST?” Dr. Edward.R. Fields hadstated that; Nathan Goldman, the Founder of Israel as quoted from Paris Match, December 29, 1979  “Since the Second World War, Jews have been treated with silk gloves. Without Auschwitz, there would be no Israel."  

The "Holocaust" has given Israel a tremendous psychological advantage over the Gentile world, particularly America and Germany. By exploiting the guilt complex instilled in non-Jews, they have obtained: over $65 billion in aid from Germany, over $55 billion in aid from America. Israel, a prosperous country, receives   $8 million a day in foreign aid – more than any other country; The 45,000 Jewish immigrants from Russia have the highest annual quota after Mexico. They enter as "refugees" without having to prove persecution! As "refugees" they are automatically entitled to full welfare benefits not subject to welfare reform cuts., Nonstop holocaust brainwashing in schools, TV, movies and books has placed Israel and organized Jewry above criticism.
